Pasco trip

All about that bass

Senior flute player Savannah Southwick said that, at the Pasco preliminaries on Saturday, Oct. 7, the props the Capital band were using were destroyed. The wind had gone crazy the moment that they walked onto the field. “We’ll make sure the props are windproof next time,” she said. “Put out your best, even if the elements aren’t on your side,” she said. She said that in finals, they moved up two spots after the competition. Southwick said she had a lot more focus in finals, which helped quite a bit. “Realize when you’ve been given a second chance, and make it better,” she said. “It teaches you discipline and you grow close to other people. It’s like a job and a family,” she said. Senior tuba player, Adelyah Al-Ghizi said that band is hard work. They march at insane tempos for hours, they have to keep their feet in time and play their music well, and jazz run quite a bit. “You juggle plates,” she said, quoting one of the instructors. Band also takes a lot of concentration and focus. They must always be playing good music, and always get to, or close to, their spot. “Tough stuff. It’s not easy at first, but you get better with practice,” she said. “It has a fun environment, they can talk to people about memes, and sometimes Casey Lindorfer and Blake [French] will sing a song.” For the future, Al-Ghizi hopes that the band will be doing well, and that it will be G-O-O-D. “Win finals at D3!” she told me excitedly. Sophomore mellophone player, Gavin Snow, said that the Pasco trip was fun. They got to watch West Side Story, which is the piece they were playing, on the bus on their way to Pasco. “JOIN BAND!” he said. “It may be hard, but stick with it, it pays off,” Snow said By Sydney Lindenberg

Spanish student junior Anthony Ritthaler had many things to say about Spanish class, including that the teacher, Matt McKinney made Spanish fun and educational. He said that McKinney is “goofy” and got in front of the class to help you learn. “If you’re doing Spanish, you’ll have lots of fun, because Capital Spanish classes are the best,” Ritthaler said. Another fun aspect of Spanish were the games, which taught you the words as you played. “The reason it’s fun is because he’s a goofy teacher and doesn’t leave anybody out,” he said. Repetition was also important due to going through the book to ensure it stuck until the test. “It can get boring sometimes, but he spices it up with bingo,” he said. “If you’re taking Spanish, it’ll be easier to communicate with people from Spanish speaking countries,” he said. French student and sophomore Sarah Kessler enjoyed many aspects of French including the interactions between French students. She said that everybody was friends with each other, and they all talked with each other, making jokes. “French class is a more personal class than any other class I’ve taken,” she said. Phones were also a big part of French, and Sarah said that it was a great learning tool that was used in regular lives, and that it should be transferred to educational life as well. “Technology plays a big role in French and it should play a larger role in other classes,” she said. Sarah also enjoyed French names, she felt as if it was an alter ego. “French class is a good way to expand your horizons and learn about new cultures you couldn’t have learned about without the class,” she said.

lunch ladies Lunch lady Brigitte Reynolds said,“Preparing the food the day before and making it the next day in time for the kids is hard. It’s very hard.” Reynolds said that she likes the kids, “and enjoys being around them.” All of the lunch ladies loved the kids and they hope they liked what they made for them. “The kids here are great especially here at Capital,” Reynolds said. Being a lunch lady means you have to get up early to prepare lunch for the day. They have to be here and ready to go at 6:00 am In the future she will continue to be a lunch lady. “I’ve been a lunch lady for 12 years,” said Reynolds. Sophomore Sydney Lindenberg said she liked how there were so many places to eat here at Capital unlike other schools that give you have limited amount of places to eat. It doesn’t rea lly matter where you sit to eat. “Its great because you can be with all your friends, there’s even people eating in the halls,” Lindenberg said. Another thing Lindenberg likes is the food. There were so many varieties of food to choose from. “The lunch ladies do a great job preparing the food it’s very delicious,” she said. Lindenberg said, “they’re great and they always have a smile on their face. When they smile they make me smile and it just makes my day better, when they can see that you’re having a bad day because of the expression on your face they talk to you a little as you get your food ” In the future Lindenberg would like to continue eating food from Capital and she would like to have the same lunch ladies because they’re great. “If you haven’t tried the food the lunch ladies here at Capital make you should

Solar Eclipse The Solar Eclipse occurred on August 21, 2017. The Eclipse was an event where the moon covered the sun. Boise Idaho was the place to be for this event because here the moon covered 97%-98% of the sun. On the day of the eclipse West Ada, Nampa, and Boise schools delayed the start of school until August 22-23 because there would have been horrible traffic and it would have been a nightmare to get to school. It would have been unsafe for a lot of people with the distraction of the eclipse. Sophomore Taylon Bitt said he thought that it was an amazing experience and he was glad to to have been awake that early. He said that, viewing it without special glasses, could cause blindness. “If you ever have the opportunity to see the eclipse you should definitely get the eclipse glasses!” said Bitt. Bitt explained that he had never seen a solar eclipse before and how it was a new experience for him. He was happy to see it because it changed his life. “I definitely think you should watch the Solar Eclipse if you have the opportunity,” said Bitt. By Jace Gribling

Art Classes

“When I first started on the pottery wheel everyone in the class made it seem easy, that was changed when I went on the wheel, it was really hard. We had a class

project of making cases but instead mine turned out to be more of a blob.” Senior William Auston was passionate about art class. He talked about the many ways of which he could express himself through all his art work. Auston loved how he could explore your values through different forms of art. “Everyone should experiment with what they love and should also experience art class,” he said. One part Auston loved about being in art class is that he gets to learn something about himself. A part that maybe he didn’t know about, it could be fun to explore his own mind. “It helps portray yourself in many ways,” Auston said. Auston loved his art class especially how nice and helpful the teachers were towards the students. “They care about having a fun art experience,” he said. He hopes in the future that he gets to pursue graphic design. “Make sure you know how to express yourself and what you believe in,” Auston said. Senior Hanna Kessler was also in an art class. She talked about how the class had a really positive attitude, how they were very nice and how they allow you to explore new things. “I like drawing and being able to work with new mediums and ideas,” Kessler said. Another highlight about art class was being able to learn at College of Western Idaho (CWI). She went Tuesday after school and was able to turn assignments in online which was a cool experience in high school. “It’s awesome that Capital gives students the opportunity to take college credit classes in high school,” she said. Kessler also took ceramic classes. It was something that she had never experienced before and how it’s different from the art that she did because she could use it in real life. “Ceramics is something new I tried this year, and it is a unique experience,” she said. In the future, art class will help Hanna go to school in California. “Art opens opportunities that you wouldn’t expect,” Kessler said. By Alondra Valdez

New grading system The district started a new grading policy this year that required Equal Increment Grading Scales (if using a 100 pt. Scale--lowest score was a 50%). The policy allowed for 4pt and 5pt grading scales. English teacher Scott Moore enjoyed the new grading scale and the method of evaluating student’s progress in class. “I believe the new grading scale is very beneficial to students, as it’s helps clarify what scores represent.” There is less confusion about scores they are receiving on their work, and it does make grading easier, since our scoring rubric stays consistent. “It’s a better method to evaluate the strengths of students a provide clearer feedback on areas they can improve upon,” Moore said. Junior Havilah Banta believed that students were falling behind because, when their homework was not graded they felt like they didn’t have to do it. She said, “You should do your homework anyway because if you don’t, you won’t do as good on tests which could affect your EOC.” For a lot of classes students were graded 80% on tests and 20% on the EOC. “The grading system isn’t personally what I like but it is what it is,” Banta said. Most people don’t do their homework because it wasn’t graded. Everyone assumed that if they didn’t do their homework it would be fine because it didn’t have a grade, but that was not usually the case. “Even though homework isn’t graded it’s like an invisible grade because it shows up on tests and the EOC,” Banta said. “ It’s not going to help in the future if the grade system stays the same,” Banta said. “We could’ve avoided all the bad grades and kids dropping out if we had a better solution to this,” Banta said. by Indiana Keller

Shining A Spotlight “Take your time, don’t try to rush because it’s a school project.”

Psychology teacher Kristin Barrier was excited for the sheep brain dissections in her AP Psychology class on Oct 9. “It’s important to show them how your brain evolves and grows,” she said. “It’s important to keep learning, because if you don’t learn anything you’ll lose more neurons,” Barrier said. Students learned that the important parts of the brain are the forebrain, hindbrain, and the midbrain. The dissection helped students learn the difference through visuals. “It’s important for students to be able to hold, feel, and dissect the difference between all of the different parts of the brain,” she said. In the future Barrier hoped that students will tell others how important knowing the human brain is. by Aurora Cowan

Taco Truck Let’s Taco ‘bout it The Spanish classes had a treat on Tuesday October 24. The Gallo Giro taco truck had arrived for the semesterly tradition among the Spanish classes, Taco Tuesday was underway. Spanish teacher Matt McKinney, along with other Spanish teachers, started this event as a way to say thank you to the students of the Spanish program. The secondary reason was to have students speak Spanish outside of a classroom setting. “It’s the most fun day of the semester,” McKinney said. Students were very nervous of the prospect of speaking the language to Spanish speaking people as the students were required to order in Spanish. While understandable, it was funny as students realized it came surprisingly easily. “It’s important to learn how to speak Spanish in a social setting,” McKinney said. All Spanish classes were allowed to participate, which opened avenues to discuss the class and language among the different classes outside of class. The event allowed students to ask for help and discuss with many different teachers and other students. “You have to realize learning Spanish is a continual process,” he said. McKinney started this four years ago at Riverglen Junior High, and has done it every semester since. Spanish was all around us, so learning it was a very important task, and getting a local business involved was a plus. This event was planned to continue for the foreseeable future. “Take Spanish and learn the language, participate and have fun on Taco Truck day,” he said. By Willard McCall

New Teachers Individual Occupational Training and Academic Support teacher Heather Bullington said she had been working in the Boise School District for seven years before she came to Capital. Bullington thought Capital was a kind and positive place. “Capital is very nice! The kids are so polite and the staff is great,” said Bullington. She was very happy to be working with Capital’s staff and students this year. She liked how excited everyone was about school and how it’s a pleasant place to be. “I went to school for Social Services and have a Master’s Degree in criminal justice,” she said. Bullington started working with offenders and taught them how to function in society, how to get jobs, and how to maintain employment. Through doing this she was hired at West Ada School District, then started to take classes to become a teacher. “When I was a child I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up, so I laugh now that I ended up teaching,” she said. Bullington has now been teaching for ten years and plans to continue. Science teacher John Kramis said this is his second year teaching full time at a public school. Before he started teaching at a high school he tutored math, physics, and taught algebra, and calculus-based physics labs at Boise State for a couple years. “I LOVE CHS so far!” he said. Kramis loved both the staff and students. He said they had been amazing in more ways than he could say. “I became a teacher because I wanted to do something meaningful with my life,” he said. He wanted to do something where he could make a real difference for people. Kramis wanted to do his part to give students and others support. “I’ve considered pursuing many different careers,” he said. Then in college, he learned how fulfilling teaching can be. “Things change, I guess,” he said. By Tristyn Shivel

“Being able to make your own work, and say that you did that was great.”

May Zhen Sophomore Willard McCall was taking Graphic Design 1 and learned about making monotypes with local artist Amy Nack. The process of making monotypes is a hands on technology, it all started with a soy-based paint that students spread on a gel plate, creating a design. Using a roller brush students spread the paint on the plate, and then they pressed a piece of paper on top, creating an impression of the artwork of the gel plate. “Complicated but rewarding,” McCall said. Graphic Design students made all the posters for homecoming events with original designs but used the same font and font sizes. “Nice to feel appreciated and help people with making posters for the different events,” McCall said. “Don’t be afraid to ask for help,” he said. In the future Willard is excited for other kids to make monotypes and would want to do it again. “Don’t stress about it just have fun,” he said. Junior Kobe Clouthier also participated in the monotype lessons with Nack. The gel plates they used were flexible and squishy with 5x5 sizes, but they also had circular shapes as an option. “They are soft and squishy textures, the gel plates start off clear but over time they start to dye in color because of the ink coloring,” Clouthier said. When they were ready to lay the paper down students didn’t have to press hard because the paint spreads quickly; when it transferred the design it’s was a mirror image of the gel plate. But with too much ink, it wouldn’t dry and it would be super shiny. “You don’t have to press very hard to transfer the design, and also don’t want to add too much ink or else it won’t dry fast,” Clouthier said. cils they were able to make they desired. “The stencils are made out of cardstock so you can cut into them,” he said. “I would ask someone what kind of design they are doing, and what ideas they might have in mind,” he said.
