2017 Dance, Cheer, and Mascot Clinic On Saturday, Sept. 16, the dance and cheer teams hosted their annual clinic for kids ranging from Pre-K to 12th grade. The student-led clinic serves as a way to raise funds for the their programs. The dance team and cheer team taught the children fundamentals as well as a routine that was performed at the following football game.

A: Not that I‛m aware of, our coaches have told us in the past how lucky we are to have a student body who supports us so much. Q: What are some football routines? A: Our physical practice is comprised of different things for every position, but we don‛t just straight condition like run a mile. Q: What is a ‘sport‛ to you? A: My personal definition of a sport is anything where one competes against others in something they‛re passionate about. Q: Do you have anyone in your family that has been in band?

Q: Why do you think band is a sport? A: Band requires a physical just like other sports. Q: What‛s band camp like? A: It‛s horrible... We had days from 7 am to 9 pm. Q: Why do you think everyone is so opinionated about this? A: People don‛t understand the work we put in. We work hard just like other sports, Q: What are band practices like?

Q: What are some differences between band and football? A: Band has a longer lasting physical wear and tear, football is more of 30 seconds of physical exhaustion then rest a bit then repeat. Q: How long are the practices for football? A: The practices are about 2 hours and 30 minutes give or take. Q: What is a ‘sport‛ to you? A: Anything that physically and mentally challenges your body and mind through any sort of movement. Q: Where do you spend most of your time? A: I spend it either in the soccer or football locker room, at home or the band hall. Q: How does this argument affect the way you see both activities? A: I‛ve always thought marching band is a sport because it requires the same sort of fitness. Marching for an 8 minute show is like running a mile race.

Every Saturday, band has to wake up from the late night they had the night before at the football game, come back to the school, and practice their show to prepare for competitons. Getting timing and positioning on the field just right can be pretty difficult. Besides the added elements of sweating under your uniform while running around playing your instrument, dodging the flags and rifles from color guard, all while looking elegant. Color guard joins the band at competitions and during halftime at the football games, but during the competitions color guard does not affect the bands score negatively, only positively. Color guard is scored separately but performs with the band. The band’s show is titled “A Beautiful Mind.” It highlights the concept of the left (analytical) and right (creative) side of the brain. Each movement aims to portray a side of the mind.

The band plays in the stands during the beginning of the game. They play songs ranging from the classics like 25 or 6 to 4 by Chicago to hip hop like All I Do Is Win by DJ Khaled. With a few mins still left in the second quarter, the band climbs out of the stands and gets ready to perform. At halftime they perform their contest show, which is about 9-12 minutes. After halftime the band all goes back in the stands, except the drum line and the trombones. They play and dance with the cheerleaders and the student section. Then they continue entertaining the crowd and cheering on the team, until the clock runs out, and it’s time to mentally prepare for the next day’s competition.

In late July, band camp starts, ending band kid’s summer. From 7 am to 4 pm, it’s marching and learning where you fit in. An additional rehersal is held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 9 on the field. Learning discipline, how to stand and hold your instrument without moving, and learning to deal with the sun beating down on you can get pretty rough. Freshmen come in early on a few days before returning members to learn the basics of marching band.

Steele High School lends a helping hand by gathering donations Written and Design By : Jasmyn Weaver

The plethora of hurricanes have wrecked havoc on Puerto Rico, Cuba, Florida, the Texas coast, and countless other countries. Hurricane Harvey left the Texas coast devastated. Luckily, Knight Nation donated their time and resources to help those in need. During the first week of school, students were encouraged to donated water, food, money, and anything they could provide. Then, on Friday Sept. 1, Mr. and Mrs. Matthews, Coach Herrera, and the basketball team went down to the coast to give those affected the donations. The basketball team helped with the demolition of houses. “We had to take out cabinets, flooring, carpets, and take everything out of someone’s house and put it on the curb.” Coach Herrera said. “My HOSA kids brought in

diapers, but we didn’t bring anything down there because our cars were loaded with cardboard boxes,gloves, tools and hammers. We didn’t have the ability to take down the donations. Our on campus officer, Officer Walls, was collecting items, so we donated our diapers to her.” Isabella (Izzy) Nally, 10th, was evacuated from Corpus on August 24, while she was dropping off her brother at A&M Corpus so he could move into his dorm room. “I wasn’t really surprised since I knew about the hurricane, but I was honestly worried about how long it was gonna take to get out of there,” Izzy said.

Izzy and her mom were in Corpus for a day and they evacuated later in the day. “We evacuated later in the day because we didn’t want to be in a place where we waited too long and then we got stuck.” What was supposed take two and a half hours took six hours to get home. “Luckily I was with my mom so we were able to keep ourselves entertained, but it was still such a long ride back.” No one can predict when a disaster like Harvey is gonna hit. Thankfully, there are people like Knight Nation who can help those impacted by these disasters do their best to get back on their feet. “It’s not about us, it’s about putting others first and supporting other people.” Coach Herrera said, and that’s exactly what Knight Nation did.

“It’s not about us. It’s about putting others first and supporting other people.” -Coach Herrera

On September 1, David’s Law, a law designed to help schools prevent and punish students who harass or bully other students online, took effect. This law will affect our students, their parents, and school districts. The law was created after an Alamo Heights students committed suicide after online harassment. The law protects students from other students who encouraging suicide, otherwise known as suicide baiting, violent threats, and releasing indecent photos of a student. These actions could now be punishable by up to a Class A misdemeanor. “ I think already this year we’ve already seen an increase in students coming forward,” said counselor Ms. Ranallo, “because they’ve heard of the law and they know what happens, so they are quicker to let us know that something is occuring.” “Most people don’t know what the law does, and a lot of it is actually thrown back at the parents, and they don’t realize that” Asistant Principal Mrs. Wagner said. “But it defintley puts a big implica-

tion on bullying that wasn’t there before.” Parents and the schools may be held responsible for their students actions, if the court decides that they could have prevented their actions and did not. Before this law, schools created their own laws and punishments for acts of bullying or harassment, this law will create specific guidelines for schools to adhere to when making their policies regarding bullying, and allow them to legally take action when these events occur. This includes an anonymous reporting system for students, and the ability to work with the police to investigate the student’s actions. “It puts a spoltight on bullying, which is a good thing,” Ranallo added, “but there’s a big component that’s missing which is to help students develop resliency and the ability to better deal with some situations.” Because Molak’s parents fought for this law to be created, there is now a tone of zero tolerance regarding cyber bullying. While it may not put an end to the cyberbullying, there are now serious consequences for these actions, which is a step in the right direction.

I have recently come to realize how seldom doing things for yourself, or even leaving the house is really neccessary. For example, you really don’t feel like going to the groccery store, well no worries, you can order them online and pick them up without even leaving your car from Walmart with curbside pickup. And companies like Blue Apron can deliver fresh produce and other ingredients and a recipe for you to make your meals. And now with services like TaskRabbit, Shipt, and PostMates you don’t even need to leave the comfort of your home to get your errands done, you can let other people run your errands for you. And with all the Amazon services, such as Amazon delivery, Prime Now, and Alexa you might never have to go beyond your front steps. Alexa has features that allow you to turn your TV and lights on, place orders, make reminders, all by voice command right from the couch. And if you have an extreme craving for Chick-Fil-A, but can’t take the drive, don’t worry UberEats will deliver all your favorite foods right to your door.

Teen Pregnancy Design and Story by: Sabrina Ponce

The topic of teen pregnancy often goes avoided, with the exception of mandatory health classes that provide little insight into the struggles and outcomes of becoming a teen parent. Whether they are uncomfortable with the topic or believe it can’t happen to them, chances are, today’s teens aren’t discussing the matter at hand. Births in adolescents has yet to decrease and has been an issue for generations. Raising a child while still trying to grow up is no doubt a challenge, and without the support and help needed it can seem impossible. Many question what life must be like for the children of these adolescent parents. A child born to young parents might have different experiences compared to a child born to older, more mature parents. Much like every birth, no two childhoods are the same and although the outcome results in a child, the years to follow are to be a deciding factor of how one handles life with a child.

Student and first born to a teen mom, Jasmyn Weaver, sophomore, gives insight to what life is like being the result of teen pregnancy. “My mom was 18 and a senior at Judson when she had me. I was told that at first my grandfather was a little bit upset but then he was supportive. We even lived with my grandparents for the first 5 years of my life. My mom graduated from Judson and went to Our Lady of the Lake for a while, but eventually she dropped out so she could work more. In 2013 she got her Master’s degree from the University of Phoenix.” “My life growing up was pretty normal despite the custody situation; I just happened to have a young mom and I lived with my grandparents. Now it’s more intense because my mom is worried I’ll be a teen mom like her. She’s more on my case about stuff like that. I definitely think teen pregnancy can be avoided but it does happen and it depends on how the situation is handled.”

3 in 10 American teens will get pregnant before the age of 20

“My mom was 16 when she got pregnant with me and 17 when she had me. She dropped out of school before she got pregnant and went through her pregnancy alone. My whole family told her to get rid of me. My dad was 18 when my mom got pregnant; my parents met because my mom had run away and he took her in. He introduced her to hard drugs. Growing up we were very poor, but my mom somehow always made it work. She is currently an at home mom with five kids. I feel like my mom is more understanding with me because she did way worse things at my age. However, she was also much more strict until about a year ago because she didnt want me to end up like her. She told me to never ever get pregnant, and how horrible her teenage years were due to the mistakes she made. I think teen pregnancy is not something that should happen. It’s completely possible to be safe, and I dont think anyone is ready at this age. I’m certainly not.”

The IMPACT of Breast Cancer

get tested, do it.” If she would have known 15 months earlier, she could have begun prevention plans to thwart development. Katherine’s case is similar to many others; her breast cancer is not genetic, but a compilation of several different factors such as, “hormones, stress, my diet, and obesity; I had all those bad things at the same time,” Katherine said. So many of us think we can only get breast cancer if someone in our family had it, but that’s not necessarily the case. Almost 90% of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer didn’t inherit the disease; it developed from other factors. “When I found out, I wasn’t in denial. I knew I was going to overcome this,” Katherine says. She told me she wasn’t fearful, because she had so much support from friends and family. Bianca, her

daughter, said, “...I never saw my mom as weak, because that’s not the type of woman she is; she is a strong lady, she is a veteran, a mother, and my best friend.” With the support from her family and friends, Katherine fought through all of her treatments. In the end, many people are afraid of knowing early because they fear what they can’t control. “The fear hasn’t really set in, and I hope it never will,” Katherine Bermudez. She was never fearful because of her faith, love, and support from her family. If more people had this type of support, they wouldn’t be fearful of pre-screening, which would ultimately decrease the devastating effects of this horrible disease.

Breast cancer, a condition in which one in every eight women are diagnosed with in their lifetime and also the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women, yet this type of cancer is most commonly undetected. Why is this? Why do so many women struggle from this, and yet so many people know nothing about it? Katherine Bermudez, 49, is a wife and mother of 2, and a survivor of breast cancer. Katherine put off screening for 14 months; during those 14 months she developed 2 tumors on her breast. Thirty percent of women with breast cancer go undetected because they are fearful to go in for a screening. These women are not only fearful of the process itself but of the results that may come after. Despite their fear, it’s absolutely essential to get the special screenings since they can detect cancer 15 months prior to the cancer even arriving in your body. Mammograms are the most controversial topic when it comes to breast cancer. So many women who have the mutation are against the idea of getting pre-screened. Why? Fear! People are fearful of having to live with the results. Katherine says, “If you have the opportunity to

Apple released 3 new iPhones this year in September. The iPhone 8 and 8+ were released September 22nd, and the iPhone X was released September 27th. The iPhone’s new features come with a big price tag, the iPhone 8 is starting at $699, the plus is $949, and the iPhone X has a starting price at $999. The biggest new features on the 8 is the glass back for wireless charging, a better camera, and a faster processor. The difference between the 7 and the X is (obviously) the edege-to-edge screen, the absence of a home button, a better display, better camera, and also a glass back for wireless charging. In regards to the iPhone 8, Kaitlyn Gutierrez said, “I think it’s different than the 7 only because of wireless charging but I don’t think it’s better.” “I think for them to be charging this much for an iPhone it should come in more than just the generic color options,” said Kaitlyn Gutierrz, 11. The new iPhone X only comes in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold, and possibly a “blush gold” color, but they will no longer come in rose gold. “Rose Gold is a pretty color but I’ve never had it so its not a big issue to me.”said Kaya Lopez, 10. The iPhone X seems to be the only real upgrade here, but Kaitlyn Gutierrez says she doesn’t think she will get an iPhone 8 or X, “because they’re too expensive and I am accustomed to the one I have now.”

My signature style consists of a lot of the same 3 colors: white, black, and gray, not many patterns or colors. And my father on the other hand, loves pattern and colors.
