    Lily Holladay is an awesome 9th grade student here at SJHS. Want to find out more about Lily? Read on!

    Lily’s thoughts on school? “I like it, kind of. My favorite class is Biology because I like learning about science.” Some of Lily’s hobbies include playing the violin, and like she said, learning science. “Science is interesting because you find out how stuff works. It’s more hands-on than other school subjects.”

Do you ever just stop and think about how funny something could be, like roll-skating? Roller skating is humans intentionally strapping on 8 wheels just to move a little faster.  And here we are, SJHS students getting into a large metal can with 4 large wheels to go to this term's Citizenship Party, it all seeming very funny. When the wheels started to move, bands of students laughed while others blasted music from portable speakers. Parker Smith told me, “The bus ride was fun.  I sat with friends and listened to some music!”

In every successful musical there is a fantastic cast and a great Director but little does the audience know, behind the bright lights and glittering costumes, are the techies. Manning the spotlights and fixing the mics they set the stage for the cast to shine. “I've done tech since I was like seven because I didn't have enough time to be in the actual play.” says Emma Payne, “If you don't have time to do the actual musical it's a good way to have fun with your friends that are in it, and it's cool to learn about the stage”.
