What's it like being a TA in the school library? Well there are many jobs; such as taking papers to teachers, stapling papers or making copies. It's a fun job, and sometimes you don't have much to do. You can apply for this class by turning in an application to your counselor. Austin Snarr took this class because, “I felt like it was a good class to stay caught up in.” he said. At times it can be a busy job. Teachers will bring stuff into print but it's “never too hard.” said Austin. Other students should definitely try to be a Teacher's Assistant in the library. Some advice Chandler Thurman and Austin Snarr have is to stay on task and get your homework done if you have extra time. Chandler’s favorite part is stapling or in spare time, playing on the computers. Austin likes to deliver papers to teachers. Although being a librarian is not a career they'd want, having this class makes them want to go to the library more.
Many of you may know Fatima. She is very funny and outspoken. She is great at soccer and could not live without it. Depression is a challenge and unfortunately she has to overcome it. No one can resist food, neither can Fatima. Food is a true blessing. Clowns are her biggest fear. Hopefully none show up at her house, because that is her favorite place to be. Her favorite thing to do is sleep. I mean, who doesn't love to sleep? Although she's only traveled to Washington D.C. it was a great trip for her. “Lead others in a good way.” That's what true leadership means to Fatima. Out of flying cars, robot house cleaners or moon cities she'd want flying cars. The reason be is that you could get to places faster. She would love to be a hairstylist just for done day to dye people's hair. We all have that one phrase we say all the time and her’s is “ugh!” Hard work is success, according to Fatima. If she had the chance she'd tell her future self, “you fiiiiine!” Clearly she's an exciting and amazing person.
The most beloved day of school is coming upon us, the day when we have the option to go the Lagoon theme park, the Utah made park that everybody loves, it even houses one of the oldest roller coasters in Utah, as well as the newer and feared ride, the Cannibal.
The trip up isn’t like other trips, you ride in what they call the “Le Bus” a higher quality bus, typically used for tours, with the rumors of hitting the chairs a smoke cloud of dandruff appearing. They spared no expense for a high quality trip, which is great, let's see some opinions on people with plans to go to the Lagoon.
Tavio of seventh grade is no newcomer to Lagoon. Alike to other people, he had come there before and has enjoyed it. And in his terms: “That was some good stuff. Some good stuff.” Although Tavio has not gone to Lagoon since the new additions, his interest is increased with the new addition of Cannibal to see exactly what it has to offer.
If you are a seventh grader just coming to SJHS: Then the mystical wonders of Lagoon has just been opened to you with even some access to go with friends. The charge is small, even less so than going there without the school, so if you haven't had the opportunity to go, now is your chance!

Do you hate Nickelback? A lot of people do, so if you do, then you’re not alone. What is it that makes them so bad you might wonder? Tommy Williams, a 9th grader, thinks that they are one of the worst bands ever. “The lead singer sounds like he’s being choked, their music is boring and repetitive.” he says. Sarah Thompson thinks that they only have one good song, which is the song, Photograph, but other than that “lame. Their music is lame.” Jonny Acevedo says, “I’ve never really listened to them before, because I strive to keep myself away from trash. But I think they’re are a bad band.” Anya Keil says that she’s never listened to them before, but they seem to have a really bad reputation.
Now that we know what music people don’t like we asked them what type of music they actually like to listen to. Tommy says that he’s a fan of classic rock, he likes bands like The Beatles and Nirvana and Radiohead. Sarah is also a fan of classic rock, she loves the band Journey. Jonny is a fan of older music, like Frank Sinatra and Queen, but he does enjoy a good Disney soundtrack. Anya loves R&B and rap, her favorite artist is Childish Gambino.
What makes all of these artists better than Nickelback? Absolutely nothing except opinion. This article was written as a joke, so if you like Nickelback I’m sorry. It’s okay to have your own opinion and like certain types of music, everyone has their own tastes, feel free to express yours.
New Disney movies vs the old. Which one do you think will win? Dylan Miles, an eighth grader, said that he likes the new movies better because there is more action in them.

Some of the new disney movies that were remade are Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast. It is such a smart idea to make newer versions, even though the old versions are great, the newer versions in some people’s opinions are better.
