Pornography isn’t really a subject you would expect at school, so it was a really big surprise to the students at SJHS when we had an assembly about it on Monday, October 2nd. The assembly's goal was to inform the students about the harmful effects of using porn. The assembly was to give the students more info on the subject and how we shouldn’t do it. Our students during the assembly seemed to be very calm, intrigued, and pretty willing to participate when the speaker asked. What were the students thoughts on it, though?

Everybody has different talents, and for the students at SJHS, most of ours is music. There’s orchestra, choir, and band. But we should just get to the more awesome one first, band. Of course, I mean, that’s what everyone was thinking, right.

Anyways, Band. With Mr. Booth as our teacher, everybody always has a blast. “Mr. Booth is the best,” as many 8th graders like, Parker Lavin, Ben Tenney, and Jacob Arbon would say, “and he just makes music and learning more fun.”

There aren’t that many drinking fountains at our school. This causes issues with our student body. Many students have to walk to a different hall to get one miserable drink of water.  Getting a tardy just for getting a drink is kinda ridiculous. A student shouldn’t have to worry about being late to a class just because they wanted to quench their thirst.

One of the most beloved holidays is coming around the corner for us to celebrate. It allows many people to just let loose and enjoy the creepy atmosphere with a bit of sweetness. If you instantly thought of Halloween, you’re obviously right. There’s also one more that’s just as appreciated. It may land in the coldest of times, but warmth can be found and even felt with it’s alive and cheerful aura. That happens to be Christmas. But what does SJHS have to do with either of these? Well, on Halloween, a day before or after, everyone can come dressed up.
