In honor of Women’s History Month just ending, who is your female role model and why?
“Jennifer Lawrence, because I believe her acting has created such a large impact across audiences of all ages, and because of how real she is with the media and doesn’t try to put up a front. If you watch many of her interviews, you’ll see how funny and charismatic she is in every setting, and I don’t think she realizes how refreshing that is for an audience and maybe even other fellow celebrities.” Shay Feiter, West sophomore
“I have always been a very avid reader, and I can honestly say it only increased over Covid, especially over the spring break. I checked out 42 books from the library.” Dana Timmermon, West senior Continue reading →
To stem the spread of COVID-19, students will be split by last name into two groups that will alternate between in-person and virtual learning starting Wednesday. What are your thoughts about the new cohort model?
“I actually really like it because it is a good way to limit the spread of COVID while still being able to go to school.” Lydia Winklbauer, East senior Continue reading →
“Bring tissues to the movie, it’s sad. You really have to see it to get the full experience and to have seen the previous movies, otherwise it won’t make sense.” Peter Steffen, West junior Continue reading →
What are your thoughts about the heating and cooling systems at the high schools?
“In Mr. Clark’s classroom it is a hotbox and I usually need to take off multiple layers, compared to Mrs. Kastner’s class where she has to keep blankets in the closet because it is so cold. I also never know how to dress because the temperature fluctuates so much.” Abigail Canfield, West junior Continue reading →
What do you think about arming teachers as a safety measure?
“I think that arming teachers is unnecessary. If teachers want to have a gun, I think that they can. I don’t necessarily agree with it but they are their own person, they are independent. However I don’t think it should be a mandatory thing.” Alex Schloemer, East senior
Last week the West Bend High Schools announced that the schedule on Tuesdays will be adjusted to ensure students receive the proper number of instructional minutes. The new schedule starts March 6.
How do you feel about the elimination of early release on Tuesdays?
“Personally I don’t think it makes that big of a difference, it’s only 20 minutes. But I’d like to know how this was overseen, because it’s kind of a big thing, how many minutes you go to school. So how did we not realize this earlier?” Libby Willkomm, West junior
How prepared are you for the Advanced Placement tests?
“I feel pretty prepared. Our teachers all did a really good job at balancing things out over the year so we’re not cramming much in at the last second. And we have some time to review so overall I feel pretty good. Mostly I like to look at the review material that the teacher gives out, I don’t like going back in the textbook myself. The teachers usually do a pretty good job at giving us stuff that we could go over in order to be successful.” Justin Scherzer, East sophomore
What’s the most interesting thing you did over summer?
“So I was out at around 11 at night and we were looking for turtles. I had seen them underneath a rock and so I put a stick underneath the shell and I grabbed it by the tail. We measured the shell, and it has to be 12 inches, and then we took it back. We ended up making turtle soup out of it. The meat is pretty tough, so you have to slow cook it, but it was pretty good. I would recommend it. ” Logan Woods, East senior
