At least once, you probably have, or are going to, reflect over things that happened during high school: the four years where either everything mattered or you just didn’t care anymore.

High School

A time in our lives where we spend four years stressing over work, tests, relationships, and gossip. In these exact moments, while we are living and experiencing what seems to be a life or death situation is where we feel like we really can’t go on. No matter who you are, you have come face to face with one of these moments at some time. From pushing off doing your homework the night before and doing it between passing time, missing your bus and not knowing how you’re going to make it to school on time, running out of ink when your ten page research paper is due, not finding anyone to copy off of during an exam, worrying when you can’t contact your group project partner even though you called, texted, emailed, and Facebooked them, or freaking out when you still have not found a date to Prom two days before. These stressful situations and constant complications continue to escalade until we truly believe the world is going to end. In these precise moments of our high school career, everything seems impossible. It is in these life altering moments that we feel panic. This is just how high school works. In the moment, our high school problems seem devastating and world ending. So, for all of you out there; the athlete, the nerd, the journalist, the overworked, the class president, or the thespian. This here book is dedicated to YOU. Because, after all: “IT’S COMPLICATED.”

Decisions. Decisions. Decisions. People may have said to you at some point,

“Why are you making this so difficult? It’s just high school!” But it’s not. We tend to complicate all of our choices with the multiple different decisions we can make. “If I take full IB then I have to say bye to my social life. Not to mention, if I take full IB, then I have to pay like 100 dollars per test, but what if I don’t pass all the IB exams? Then I just lost tons of money I could have spent while hanging out with friends… And if I don’t pass an IB exam than I don’t get my IB diploma… and if I don’t get my IB diploma I just wasted countless hours of my life.” No matter which road or pathways you choose to take here in high school, these are only the first few steps you take towards becoming successful in the future. It’s not just about hyperventilating about homework and exams, crying over failed relationships, and freaking out about what tomorrow will bring, even if that did take up most of your time. It’s about exploring new things, making decisions, learning to take a deep breath, and above all: getting ready for the next chapter in your life

year: You were the “fresh meat”; you heard the rumors of “freshman Fridays.” You were flooded with questions and concerns, “If I have to shower in PE, I am seriously going to die.” You were the small fish in the big pond. The school seemed gigantic, and the first time you walked through the halls everything looked the same. Walking through the crowded hallways you soon learned not to stop or stand at any time in the middle of the hallway. You were drowning in a sea of people while trying to remember what route you had to take throughout the day without getting lost or walking into the wrong classroom, and most of all learning this whole ‘White day’ and ‘Blue day’ stuff. You constantly worried about first impressions, meeting and getting

along with your once enemies from your former rival middle schools, and keeping up in your classes. You almost threw up when it came to your first sport try-outs but dreamed of making Varsity shining in the big games. Freshmen year was all about leaving behind middle school, adapting to new people and situations, and getting a taste of what lies Freshman year is where in front of them. There was you started your path, your first high school dance, it is in this time that and also the first year grades we first forecasted for classes; where you actually mattered. decided to take honors courses or the easier route instead.

year: You realize that high school’s not all that bad. Freshman year is a thing of the past, and what you experienced during your first year of high school is nothing compared to this. You have so much more to worry about: Do I take Algebra 2 or Algebra 1.5? If I take Algebra 2, will I be able to take calculus as a senior…or I can just get it over with and not take a math class. You start to wonder if you have time for all the sports you want to do or what clubs to join. Also during your sophomore year you are pressured to get your license. But isn’t the driver’s test scary? For some of you, you had to worry about how you are going to pay for your car insurance, for others however your parents always covered it. This is also when you have to decide which path of education you’re going to take. Is it worth it to take IB? Which one is better: CAL or ACE? If my friends and I go to CAL we might get split up and go on totally different days…but then what if I never see Sophomore year is the time my friends again? What if I don’t know where we begin to define ourselves and discover what anyone? I’ll be forced to sit with people calling we have in life. It is from Barlow, Reynolds, and Centennial. here that we come to learn What if I want to do full IB and go to CAL? who our true friends are and is a chance for us to separate Is that possible? from the crowd and become our own unique selves.

Senior

Junior

Year: Nine more months. These nine months are some of the most stressful, busy and extremely long months ever. At the beginning, everything is exciting, everything you do is one of “Your Lasts” of high school. Your last homecoming parade, your last talent show, or your final act in the school musical. Most seniors have taken almost all the required classes and manage to have late starts or early releases daily. However, as time drags on, you begin to lose interest in school. Honestly, you could care less. Your are practically running on fumes during these final months. It is in these last months that getting out of bed every day is an extremely difficult task. “If I get out of bed, I can get myself coffee…or I can stay asleep and then get home before my mom to answer the phone before that call comes.” There is just never enough time in the day. We tell ourselves we don’t need to write down the day’s math notes because ‘I’ll remember this’ and when we get home, we’re on Google looking for answers. Senior year is a year of procrastination. We know about the ethics paper that is due in two weeks…but somehow manage to write something up within hours of it’s due date and turn it in at 11:58pm on Moodle. Homework is a joke. “I’m so tired, if I go to bed now, I can wake up early in the morning and do my homework as I’m brushing my teeth and straightening my hair…Yeah, that could work. *Lights out* The next morning my alarm clock doesn’t go off, I pull my hair back, forget to make a lunch and arrive at class with nothing…I guess I’ll go for the whole ‘I grabbed the wrong binder, can I show up after school’ trick.” With senior requirements, future plans, scholarships, college, and money problems, there just never seems to be enough time in a day. You really need to find a job, but if you get a job then you can’t run track, and if you don’t run track you won’t be eligible for a four year varsity award. Although it may not seem like it, it does come to an end. Your final moments arrive and pass you by in an instant, and before you know it, you are walking across the stage receiving your diploma and shaking the hands of your beloved teachers that have helped lead you to where you are today. Now, it is all over.

year: It’s your first year being an upper class man! Although the title of an upper-classmen is nice, education wise your junior year is said to be the most difficult of all. You’re in the middle, and are overloaded with school work, grades, sports, dances, work, and volunteer hours. You seem close to the end but are yet so far away. You begin to really define yourself and start considering your future career plans. College and Scholarships have to enter your mind, and the thought of college seems so far away. This is where you’re going to find out about the world of SATs and how important they really are. School seems so much more difficult, and schedules are loaded It is in your junior year that to the max. Although the number of getting your homework done is students that skip decreased from a lot more difficult-especially when facebook is right in sophomore year, the idea of skipfront of you, and you would ping class becomes more and more much rather creep on your prevelant as students begin to lose “frenemies” latest pictures. If you’re in CAL, ACE, or IB, sleep to stay up on their homework. the classes are harder, and Junior year is where “Scrubbing” it makes you think perhaps appears more and more often. sophomore year wasn’t that bad either...

The pressure and stress may have been a lot, and when people asked you how it was going, you would sometimes fake a smile, or other times just sigh and say, “It’s kind of complicated,” and start your ranting. Twenty years from all of this though, you will have the daily challenge of making it as an adult. The keeping up with bills, working hard to find a job, start your career, and eventually, providing for your family, and all the complications of being the one in charge. It’ll be the new complicated stage, as things are only complicated in the moment. Looking back one day, everything will seem like a breeze, and high school will have been “not a big of deal.” We may not look back on things like stressing over who was in your prom group, or what people you didn’t like; instead we will think of how exciting prom was, and how easy we had it in classes compared to college. There may not be any memory of what so and so said, or what rumors your friends were spreading through the hall, it might be how much fun you had, who your true friends were, and the people that made a positive influence on you. When we look

back on high school twenty years from now, we may realize that these past four years weren’t all that bad. High school is not the end. it may seem complicated now, but it is the future, that will be the whole new “it’s complicated” story.

I t ’ s C o m p li c ated

Because in the end, Things aren’t really complicated. it’s just The next big thing.

6 | 7

Throughout all your years in high school, at some point you faced some complicated decision; whether dealing with friends or family, stressing about grades, adjusting to added responsibility from your parents, and putting pressure on yourself as you will soon be out of the house and off on your own in the ‘real world.’ You soared high over some expectations and sank way below others in crushing disappointment. During each and every complicated decision or dilemma you learned more and more about yourself and about others around you. Although certain times seemed awful and you couldn’t wait for them to be over, it was in these exact moments that you learned who you are and became the person you are today. Everyone fought the urge to doze off during class, sometimes not so successfully, put off homework until the last minute and regretted it when you found yourself staying up until 3 in the morning, and then still ended up begging for someone to let you copy their packet before you had to turn it in. You finally got your driver’s license and your first car and realized “That wasn’t as bad as I thought.” You watched the fights go down in the halls and talked about them with everyone else for the rest of the day, updated your Facebook status or tweeted about what you were doing and had to sort through all the he said, she said, stuff. You made excuses for your mistakes and reasons for skipping class, and everyday wondered what decision to make and if it was the right one, going through all the “what ifs” in your head.

SuperFan-ing is a way of life for many Gresham students. “SuperFaning doesn’t come easy. To be a REAL SuperFan you have to be loud, energetic, enthusiastic, and supportive of our teams,” shared Charmaine Tano (12). As our football scores continued to escalate, the number of SuperFans at all sporting events steadily increased. This year, there was a record of nearly 200 rowdy SuperFans in the screaming section, rooting on the team. “A true SuperFan has enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is highly contagious, it becomes a wildfire in the Superfan section,” claimed Kyle Ackerman (12). “The SuperFans are in the forefront of the audience participating with the cheerleaders... They scream louder. They lead all the chants. They are what riles the crowd up,” said Celena Nafarrate (12). Despite past losses and a small but loyal fan base, the football team broke out, taking home a second place conference title. The team depends highly on the support of their school, family and SuperFans. “Being a SuperFan and supporting our teams brings the school together as a whole, making this year one to remember for both the SuperFans, and the football team,” said Quinn Santangelo (11). Our

school spirit had been in a slump the last few years, yet rose to an all time high this year. The SuperFans felt it was their responsibility to support their team, win or lose. While some fans were devoted since the beginning, some chose to begin a little later, when the team began their reign as THE team to beat. This season we have made it to the big leagues. We have full confidence that we are going to get that win, no matter who or what gets in our way. This season has been considered the best in over 15 years, for both the team and Superfans. Gresham football has drastically changed with the guidance of Coach Todd Nagel. He has taken the football program back to its roots. In the past, Gresham players were known for being hard hitting, in-your-face players, which they are finally bringing back to the field. “We want to send a message to everyone that this is how Gresham should be, and that we are competitors who will give any team a run for their money,” Marcus Martinez (12) stated.

SuperFans; that’s what kept KATU coming back this year. KATU called and asked if we would host them for their upcoming game of the week. “They specifically wanted Gresham High School because we brought out the biggest and the most enthusiastic crowd ever in Blitz history,” exclaimed Activities Director, Bill Chisholm. KATU’s High School Blitz has been to Gresham three times in four years! That’s more than any school in the Mount Hood Conference. They know we always have the juiciest games that keep the fans coming back.

Although Gresham was aware of the potential to achieve 30 minutes of fame as the highlighted team on KATU’s High School Blitz, they still performed as they normally would. “I didn’t play any differently. Even though I was under pressure, knowing Blitz was sitting in the back of my mind, I felt confident and unaffected by the hype of the game,” commented Martinez.

to recent seasons. Understanding the potential for the team provided Friday nights a beckon of hope each week. “My main goal this season is to put an end to the losing seasons Gresham has had, and bring back the tradition of hard-hitting football. We want to send a message to everyone that this is how Gresham should be, that we are competitors and will give any team a run for their money,” commented fullback Marcus Martinez (12). This has been a season to remember; for the team, the school, and the City of Gresham. According to the Mt. Hood Conference coaches poll on Oregon Live, Gresham was predicted to place 5th out of the six teams in the conference for the 2011 season. Remarkably, Gresham placed second in the Conference for the first time in nearly ten years. This season was just a stepping stone for the boys. They now have bigger expectations leading up to the 2012 football season. “We got so close to that Mt. Hood Conference title and we won’t stop until it’s in our hands. Next year is going to be the year. We are gonna work harder than we ever had in the past, because we want it. The sky is the limit,” asserted quarterback Devon Shields (10).

Varsity Cheer preparing for the big game against Central Catholic (10.13.11)

Our very own Gresham High School cheerleading team competes all around Oregon to see who reigns supreme in the cheerleading world. Competition season comes early every year, and the squad has been preparing since the summer. Tumbling coaches have been provided for the girls, and their tumbling has improved immensely since the first practice of the year. Many people have been able to do backhand springs, and experienced tumblers have been able to better their skills. Pressure is always on the girls to perfect the stunts, motions, jumps, and tumbling. The girls are doing their normal stretching, cheers, and stunts. However when the clock rolls around to the end of October, they will start to prepare for competition season by learning new stunts and dance routines. Practices are three to four days a week, and depending on how the squad is doing, the practices may vary in length.

The varsity cheer squad was very successful cheering for the varsity football team during the fall season, and also performed well in previous competitions. In years past, cheer has placed in the top ten for the state. Other than the varsity squad knowing that the competition season is coming just right around the corner, they have to worry about being cut. They may have to cut more girls than in the past because the new OSSA rule states that the team must have a maximum of 20 girls. “There are 25 girls on the team, in case of injuries or something else that may happen which could cost the competition,� said Coach Jenny Fryback.

In order for our GHS cheerleaders to be successful, they need to be in the best shape possible. They have to be able to run, jump, flip and do as many push ups as they can. That’s where practice becomes very important. “We practice about 6-8 hours a week,” said Lauren Laakso (11). When they prepare for state, practices tend to get more intense because they have to master each routine. “One dropped stunt can cost you a championship title,” explained Lily Cichon (10). The stunts they do may seem easy, but in fact they take a lot of time and effort to perfect. As the girls on the team move ahead and become better cheerleaders, so does the difficulty of their stunts. “I think the stunts have gotten more intense since Coach Jenny has become our coach. She has put high expectations on us that has made us a better team,” shared Keiko Downing (12). Some of the girls were nervous to try some of the stunts the first time, but when they did it allowed them to grow. “I love a new challenge and I’m always up for it,” smiled Emma Bird (12).

in the middle of their routines, and the groups had to walk off the track for the next float in line. Jordan Linn (12), who was part of the seniors homecoming float said, “We knew from the past years, that the school’s sound system had its issues from time to time. We were fortunate to get a music store to donate a sound system for our float. The underclassmen are just in denial that we rock.” The stories will continue to go back and forth about who did what to whom. When it comes to this mystery of the cut music I guess we’ll never really know...

It’s complicated... No one knows the right or wrong story to the homecoming devastation. What happened to the float music during the parade? Many different stories have been floating around the hallways of school. The seniors say it’s the fault of the underclassmen for not knowing what they were doing with the music for their float. And the story is flipped for the juniors, sophomores, or freshman. They say it was the seniors who sabotaged their floats so they would win their last homecoming battle for the Homecoming title. “I heard the seniors cut everyone’s music so they could have time for their own float,” Gabby Conner (10) stated. For the freshmen, whose theme was action, their dance/skit was cut by more than a minute. The same thing happened for the sophomores, as well as the juniors. The music suddenly stopped

Although the majority of the workouts and races are all done separately, there are a few workouts that both the boys and girls cross country teams do together. During these special occasions, they all get along well... really well. Running long distances may not sound exactly like the most romantic thing, but one runner stated that about 12 out of the 30 runners were in a relationship. In September, the cross-country teams went on a road-trip to Boise, Idaho for the annual Bob Firman Invitational and spent a few days there. “Idaho is the state of love,” the anonymous runner said. Of course, not everyone responded this way. A lot of them think that it motivates them to work harder because: one, the practices are more difficult when both teams are together, and two, if someone of the opposite gender gets ahead of you even by an inch, there’s something that pushes you to get faster and beat them. The co-ed times have their pros and cons, according to coach Hutchins. “Girls run faster on runs to keep up with a boy, which in turn improves their endurance,” she said. For boys on recovery runs, it

is good for them to run at a slower pace with some of the girls. Sometimes the opposite gender can be more of a distraction. Boys could run to slow while running with girls or vice versa.” “We usually run faster and do harder workouts when we are running with the boys,” commented an anonymous runner. “I think when some of the slower boys see [some girls] pushing to go ahead of them, it lights a fire under them,” said William Blake (10). “I’m not really into strutting my stuff for girl runners. I just go.” Some people go slower when their boyfriend or girlfriend is there, according to Morgan Benson (12). Eric Johnsen (11) said, “You run with them all the time, so it all kind of blends. Co-ed training has its good points and also bad points, but everyone is pretty happy with it. Or, as Madison Statler (10) put it, they’re “a very close team.”

WHAT ARE THEY

THINKING? As runners feet steadily hit the ground at a constant pace for miles and miles, what exactly goes through their mind? “Don’t freak out, you’ll do fine! Just do your best, that’s all that matters. If it doesn’t hurt, you’re not running hard enough!” — Kendra Taylor (10)

“When I run, all I think about is my swag and passing girls. Every girl I pass is just more reason to go faster and focus on finishing the race.” — Maria Yerkes (12)

“If the course is monotonous, and I don’t have to focus on what pace I’m going, I conjugate French verbs or do simple math problems that have to do with distance and pace.” — Jacelyn Davis (10) “I just focus on the finish and getting through the race in one piece. Sometimes there’s a song stuck in my head playing over and over. This helps with the exhaustion.” — Clarice Terry (12) “I don’t think. I just say, “faster, faster.” — William Blake (10)

“You know what to do, now

After taking game one from the Bruins. the team found themselves in a ‘complicated’ situation, falling short in 3 of the next 4 games after leading by as many as 9 points in each of their 3 losses. 10.04.11 Gresham v. Barlow, (Time out, game 3).

“I am not sure why you are looking over at the bench each time you make a mistake, pull it together and play like we practice. You know what to do, now do it,” exclaimed Coach Lori Anderson-Cook. The fine line between motivating someone and holding them accountable for their actions is easier said than done. In game situations, keeping a positive and successful team dynamic is more difficult than it seems. “If my team mates are making the same mistakes over and over again I will tell them to step it up. If I am making the same mistakes

over and over again, it is nice if someone gave me the confidence to do better,” stated Alex Frazier (10). Telling each other to step it up is not always the best strategy for the team. It’s very easy to become tight and lose momentum during the course of a match. “At one point during the Reynolds match Coach Anderson-Cook was at a loss of words and asked us to sing before each touch of the ball. It really seemed to help,” commented Amanda Neffendorf (12). Teammates commented that when the team is playing well, their confidence is high and it’s easy to stay motivated and push each other to play better. However, it is the moments

when things don’t go well that the girls have to come together as a team. “I like to do something funny or dumb to make everyone laugh and have a good time, if we play loose, we play better,” said Claire Palmiter (11). Coaching is more complicated than merely teaching physical skills. Successful teams have to learn how to win, and play together in all phases of the game. “I guess it’s the motivation of us wanting to win. You have to set your mind to wanting to be competitive and wanting to win. It’s not easy; we work hard to keep our teammates and ourselves competitive,” added Anna Huber (11).

Organized chaos; Assembling the Motor housing for the three dimensional printer, Katie Davis (12) works with just a portion of the approximately 3500 pieces needed to assemble the project. (03.06.12)

When the standard curriculum does not provide what you want, develop your own.

“3 dimensional printing is the future, and Katie is using open source education to take Gresham there.”

-John Walker

Information Technology Teacher

Media

The small talk that once took place discussing the athletic contest from the night before, has been replaced by the murmurs of students inquiring about the status of a student’s “crazy” independent study project taking place in room 509. At the onset of the school year Katie Davis (12) was unable to attain her full IB status due to required IB alternative courses not being offered for a variety of reasons. One alternative was to take the IB class outside of school. This solution was unacceptable after looking at the complexity of her current course load. Making the most of her seemingly frustrated situation, she reached out to her IT teacher and mentor, John Walker. A selfdriven and highly academically motivated student, Davis was encouraged by Walker to undertake an independent study project with the goal of building a three dimensional printer. Her love for technology and digital media would provide her with a framework for the journey that lies in front of her. “The process for myself has really been hands off. Katie has taken this project on her own. She has gone through the process of selecting, acquiring, and now building a 3D printer from a kit purchased through the Make Project, makezine.com,” said Walker. “3D printing is the future, and Katie is using open source education to take Gresham there. The experience and opportunity gained through this project will strengthen her understanding of engineering, prototyping, imagineering, science, and art.” Throughout the process, numerous setbacks occurred, challenging Davis to problem solve solutions for daily issues including: missing and faulty pieces (waiting as long as two weeks to get them replaced), lacking the necessary tools, decoding the instruction manual, and overall just finding time to work during second semester when she didn’t have a class dedicated to the project. Even with the frustrations that have ensued, throughout the process of the experience, Davis maintains a positive attitude. “It has been difficult and a bit frustrating at times, but it’ll be worth it in the end,” concluded Davis. “When the printer is finally assembled the printer will bring students design ideas from Animation, Film, Graphic Design, and Modeling classes to life,” added Walker.

TURN

By Kendra Hammons and Lilibeth Vasquez

This year’s soccer program DEALT WITH unfortunate “complications” unlike last year. With the inability to score the ball, the girls team struggled defending the Mt. Hood Conference champion title. Likewise, the boys team acquainted themselves to a new coach, and experienced difficulties of their own. With numerous injuries throughout the season, the girls soccer team was unable to play as well as they wanted to out on the field. “It sucks. Especially when you know you can do something that can really contribute to the team, but you can’t because of something you can’t control. There are so many things that you see out on the field that you could have done, or been better at doing than someone else and all you want to do is play,” commented Amber Peschka (10).

The boys team also dealt with significant changes this year, involving position changes, and changes within the coaching staff. Mikey Downey (10) stepped up as the new goal keeper for Connor Cox. “It’s pretty fun, but it’s really different. Everyone always says that I must be out of shape because I’m playing goalie, as well as being the kicker for the football team.” In regards to the new coach, Rex Moffitt, he is doing the best he can to run a team that he has never been in charge of before. As a first year Varsity coach, Rex Moffitt was honored as the Soccer Coach of the Year for the Mt. Hood Conference. “He has a lot of different and new strategies and routines. He changed the line up a little,

which made it better in games. But it’s not too hard to get used to him because he coached the JV team last year,” added Tanner Hockley (12). Even though it wasn’t their best season, all team members got something good out of it. Players learned that no matter what their results are, they can count on each other and cherish the precious memories they had as a team. “My favorite memory was when we only lost 0-1 to Grant after losing 0-7 last year in our last playoff game,” Jessica Donnelly (12). This year was just a building block for next year; they lost players and gained players, but in the end, it was a learning experience for the future years to come.

The boys water polo team has a few things they would like to clear up with everyone: BOYS ALBUM

“It’s harder than it looks,” James Palmiter (10) claimed. This sport gets really intense and violent. Being mostly an underwater sport, it’s really hard to tell what’s going on, and a lot of things go unnoticed by the refs. Kicking, scratching, punching, pulling, grabbing, and drowning are all a part of the game. “We try to space out and drown people when the refs aren’t looking. As long as the refs aren’t looking, you can do anything you want,” confided Jake Sundquist (12). “[Water Polo] is not basketball in water!” said Jakob Palmquist (10). “It’s nothing like basketball,” agreed Logan Colson (10). There are goals. Goalies can’t use two hands, and can’t touch the bottom of the pool. The passing and scoring concepts are the same except they’re played differently. It’s really more like wrestling in the water, rather than basketball,” Sundquist explained. Water polo is an extremely physical sport that is exhausting. You have to be aware of everything that is going on, while also avoiding being drowned by the opponent. Despite being a crazy difficult sport, the guys really enjoy it. “It’s a fun sport that’s hands-on and a little violent, but strategic as well,” explained Duncan Parsons (9). “Water polo is the most interesting and intense sport I’ve ever played, and it puts my swimming skills to good use,” Garrison Cox (12) stated. The challenge of the sport is really one of the main reasons why members of the boys water polo team enjoy playing it.

This year the girls water polo team had a new twist... One really small team. Usually with teams in the past, there have been two girls and two guys Water Polo teams, but not this year! Because of such few girls who wanted to join the team, the game got more difficult. “It is one of the hardest things to not have very many subs because it doesn’t take that long to get tired when you are constantly sprinting back and forth across the pool,” commented Sarah Triplett (12). Despite the struggle the team has experienced due to a limited amount of girls, there’s one good concept about a small team: no drama! “We bonded pretty quickly considering there are only 10 of us,” said Jill Lauderback (12). Usually, the teams have had a lot of drama, causing tension between the girls. Getting accustomed to being a small team was not the only change that the girls dealt with this year. In addition, they had to take on the new challenge of playing with the boys. “We have shared a couple games with the JV boys. It’s difficult in a way because they are definitely more aggressive than we are, but it’s a fun challenge, and we can keep up with them pretty well,” stated Heidi Pedersen (11). With the girls being a small team this year, they had the opportunity to became closer. “I think of my team as sisters. I love them all!” exclaimed Pederson

Building a Program

by Providing Support and

Confidence By Lauren Laakso

With 270 members, Choir is one of the most popular activities Gresham offers. Only second to the Graphic Design program, Choir is the largest elective with five different classes: Treble Choir, Men’s Choir (GMC), Encore, Concert Choir and Overtones. The students involved treat the choir room like it’s their own. Even the choral director, Janine Kirstein’s, has an office with a homely touch. “I love it in there. It’s always so warm and inviting. I’ve even taken naps in there sometimes,” claimed Trent Pederson (11)! The people in choir are all influenced differently by the music they sing. “Choir has made me become an overall,

more confident and social person. I’ve met a lot of people and have had a ton of fun,” said Jasmine Thill (12). Another important aspect of choir is the closeness between members. “They have taught me a lot about who I am as a person and a musician. They’ve made me humble, but also have given me support and confidence,” revealed Taylor Johnson (12).as touched many lives. “Being in choir is a HUGE honor. It makes me very sad for the rest of the people in our school that don’t have this experience like we do. Before joining choir my freshman year, I never really had [much] confidence in my voice. Joining this program has really helped me improve my singing but also gain confidence in myself,” concluded Ify Onyima (12).

Every member of band is unique and because we play many different types of songs each of us is able to express themselves. Most members will say that blending their sounds and being somewhat the same as everyone else in band is a good thing. However, the ability to feel accepted for who you are is a comforting feeling. “When rehearsing and performing it is important to blend in as best we can,” explained Ellie Bohrer (12). While each individual’s goal is to create one sound from their section. Each member finds ways to express our selves, wether it’s in the instruments they play or the songs they perform.

A common interest and common goal goes a long way to help students develop new friendships and lasting memories. “Band is very different this year because Ms. Blanshan has brought a new and fresh appeal to the term ‘band’. It’s more fun and enthusiastic this year,” stated Ellie Wilson (10). Every year students must solve some of the same old problems. “For instance, many have a personal challenge of balancing [band] with other activities. “I’m struggling with practicing; I hardly have enough time for myself,” confessed Crystal Chau (11). Another issue facing band students is incorporating the new and inexperienced. “My greatest challenge this year was getting used to the younger students who were moved up,” confided Katelyn Steiner (12). “Though we all have our individual struggles each of us have a support team to adapt to the changes and continue on playing our music,” said Kaylee Barcroft (11). It doesn’t take long for new members to find their niche, as all high school students experience their trials and tribulations. Student’s ability to be their own person and associate themselves with others can be that lightning rod that gets them through these years.

Under the leadership of theatre director Sarah Dempsey the theatre productions may seem like fun and games, but a lot of hard work goes into a production. In order to prepare for a performance everything has to be rehearsed over and over again until it is perfect. Even after everything has been practiced and seems ready, problems still find a way of coming up. “Your problems don’t fully go away until you

are done performing on the final performance,” said actress MacKenzie Wiechmann (10). Besides casting and rehearsing, there is a lot that goes into creating a successful production. The stage, scenery, props and costumes must be designed and crafted. Careful thought is put into lighting in addition to the sound. But, what really goes on prior to the final performance?

OBSTACLES “Like most challenges facing students today, you must prepare for your own obstacles.” ‑ Ms. Wolfer, Math Teacher Each subject creates different emotions in each of us. These emotions can be derived from our past and present experiences in the class. You might say Math is like a “Love,

Hate” relationship. It’s either extremely exciting and fun or it makes you want to bang your head against the wall. Recent budget cuts, increased graduation requirements, and a 50 plus percent failure rate amongst freshman Algebra students, have caused class sizes to increase immensely, from approximately 32-35 students have ballooned to over 44 students, stifling students in the already tight quarters of GHS. In addition to already large class numbers, the school district added several budget cut days into the math department’s equation. This put more pressure on teachers, motor through the prescribed content standards. “We all know that often the most valuable time we can get with a student is the few minutes of one-on-one time when they come for help outside of class, it is just not possible to get to each student during the course of a class period,” commented Alan Simpson. Teachers are doing the best they can to help their students, but these days a teachers best just isn’t good enough to meet the needs for every student. “It’s a lot harder to learn because there is little to none one-on-one time with your teacher,” commented Marissa Haide (11). While other students are embracing the new changes, “I like it, you can get away with more things in class,” Forrest Davis (11) added. Even with the issues that students currently faced in all of their classes, there are a number of different resources are available to assist students who are struggling. “We as teachers and students can only do what we can during the time we see one another in the classroom. Ultimately, it is the students responsibility to seek help outside class. Whether it be the Tutoring Center, Mathlab, Homework Club,online tutorials, family or friends. If a student is truly motivated to learn the material, there are support structures in place to see that they are successful,” stated Lori Cook, Algebra 1 teacher. With classes as large as they are, teachers like MaLynda Wolfer are going above and beyond of what they should be. “Like most students, we teachers are preparing for the challenges we face in mathematics, by evolving the curriculum we use to align it better to state requirements, familiarizing ourselves with new graduation requirements and seeking opportunities for students to familiarize themselves with state testing materials in math,” stated Wolfer.

The annual event boasted a variety of boat designs and materials used. With each year that passes the level expertise raises with the production of the boats. While not all boats make it across the pool, the viewing audience gets a kick out of the students who come up short. The most common material used for Gopher Boats this year was plastic bottles and cardboard, along with significant amounts of duct tape. Among the boats that stood out most was one with the entire outside of a box covered by a garbage bag, making it water tight. To top things off, this boat even had a windshield. The builders of the boat were so confident it wouldn’t sink that they chose not to wear bathing suits. To make a pool-ready boat, builders suggest using plastic, duct tape and creating a boat with equal weight distribution. They suggest staying away from cardboard, heavy wood, unequal bottles and odd shaped structures. Some contestants had balloons on their boat, which only seemed to get in the way, causing them to lose the race. Gopher Boats shouldn’t be too hard if you use your imagination and think outside the box. Boats that are unique seem to get much more attention from community members and judges, than designs they have seen in the past.

of hair or personality, but what is the whole point? “Everyone was doing it and I felt like being ‘in the crowd’, but I ended up hating them and ripping them out of my head.” stated an anonymous girl. As for older trends, they’re quickly coming back. Floral prints are one of the most common trends seen. Floral printed dresses, shirts, and scarfs can be dressed up or down, and can be worn with just about anything. Styles and trends come and go as time passes by, but they always seem to return in the later years. No matter who you are or what your fashion trend is it should reflect on your personality, comfort or style.

Styles come and go as the years pass by, but Gresham high school students have some pretty interesting ways of displaying their sense of fashion by the trends and styles they wear. What are some of these styles? Some of them include clothes, shoes and accessories while others involve hair and jewelry. Some have to do more with comfort while others have to do with style. Yoga pants are among a common trend for high school girls. There are various designs and brands that many girls wear, but why do they wear them? “They are so comfortable!” exclaimed Marilyn Hernandez (10). They’re not only comfortable, but they go great with boots, flats, or a pair of Nikes. Hair feather extensions are also typically seen roaming the halls. The different colored feathers can work with any type

Sadie WHO? With hundreds of high school dance cliches and traditions, the decision to try something differEnt can be a difficult one.

The winter formal tradition “Snoball” has always been a guy ask girl dance. Each dance is given a theme wHich controls the decor and style of the event itself. This year Gresham revitalized one of the most popular themes of the past, a formal Sadie Hawkins dance. Sadie Hawkins theme gave the girls an opportunity to take the initiative by inviting the guy of their choice as a date. Gresham hasn’t had a girls ask guy dance since 2009, but the students adopted this theme like it has always been apart of Gresham culture.

“I liked the girl ask guy because then I could ask who I wanted, instead of waiting for him to ask me,” said Keely Stevens (9).It was fun to try something new his year, and dance-

goers seemed happy with the change. “I really enjoyed the way things went, I didn’t have to worry about what I was gonna do or how I was gonna do it,” commented Tyler Jordan (11). Many of the people who participated in the “girls ask guys” theme said they were more than willing to try it once again. Snoball delighted many of Gresham’s students and left lasting memories for everyone as well as bringing back a tradition from the past.

Olivia Sheehan (10) to Devin Corniel-Tapec (10) I gave him a Christmas ornament with a picture of us inside (it was a picture ornament) lol and on the ornament I wrote “Liv and Dev Snoball 2011” I put it in a cute bag with a balloon attached to it and put it on his doorstep. I chose to do the ornament because he can keep it forever!

Madison Miller (09) to Nathan Erickson (10) I went to his house when he was at work, and put Hershey kisses all over his floor that led to a sign saying “Now that I’ve kissed the ground you walk on...snoball? Savanah DeCourcey (12) Owen Murray (12)

STUDENTS VOICE CONCERNS WITH OCCUPY MOVEMENT Occupy Portland is affecting the lives of most ‘Portlanders’, but most don’t think about how it affects high school students. Some students who lives are affected are those whose parents are police officers who have had to handle the protesters. “My dad is a Portland Police officer, and he had to be out there to make sure the occupy Portland people did not get out of hand,” stated Mackenzie Wiechmann (10). Another students parent, who is also a Police Officer, responded to the Occupy movement by saying that his dad is a Portland Police officer and he has been down to the Occupy camps twice to break up a fight between some protesters who got in a disagreement. The majority of Gresham students have felt that their lives were not impacted by the Occupy Portland protest; many just didn’t care about the protest while some thought it was

036-037_2-13833_000.indd 36

a waste of time and money for the state. “It is ridiculous that the state had to pay $86,000 just to clean up the mess that people made,” stated MacKenzie Hogue (9). They aren’t even protesting for a cause anymore, they just want the attention.” Some felt the cause had been hijacked by the homeless. “A lot of the people in [the] Occupy Portland [encampment] are homeless and are sick of living under a bridge, so they act like they care about the cause so they have somewhere else to live,” Sarah Cummins( 10) commented. Some students felt that some people were participating for personal gain. “People just want to be seen on the news so they can tell their buddies that they were on TV,” voiced Robert Brokaw (10). Some teachers have been watching the Occupy movement and had some thoughts to add.

“The movement has been diverted, to some degree, by hangers-on and johnny-comelatelys who do not understand the issues or the purpose of the movement,” commented Social Studies teacher, Brian Currier. Although Occupy Portland has problems, it also has a good side to it. The Occupy Wall Street is a part of history, it is a world wide protest. Just in the US alone over 69 cities are participating in the Occupy movement. The United States isn’t the only country participating in the movement there are also five other countries. Occupy Portland is neither a good thing nor a bad thing, it will always have its ups and downs but will remain a part of history.

“I’m almost done..... Just keep going!” Sophomore, Ryan Olsen tells himself as he is finishing up his last few laps.

“The swimmers have a great relationship between each other. I have been seeing much improvement in them,” Coach Sean Taylor mentions. “My swimmers have competed well and they won most of our meets” What goes through a swimmers mind as they stare into the bottom of the pool swimming from one side to the other. “Ya know, I really don’t know what I think about as I’m swimming,” stated Dalton Boyles (11). “During a race I shut off my mind as much as I can! I stop thinking about the pain and techniques because it’s too late to turn back. If I talk to myself, I over think it, I say I’m ready for this one, and then shut my brain,” revealed Nicole Kemp (10). “When I finish a race I’m too tired to even realize what’s going on, so I congratulate my competitors and leave the pool and just breath,” continued Kemp. “I entertain myself by listening to music. The pool has sound system and I like to listen to music with my teammates. I also like racing other swimmers to keep me going,” shared Ryan Jacobs (11). “ I also count my strokes, which helps me a lot, I also try to finish as fast as possible,” said Andrew Gillen (11). “Sometimes, practice can be really hard, but that is what makes me better at swimming in races and winning,” said Sina Lustig (12)

Eight weeks prior to the contest, ASB officers (Associated Student Body) started the planning for what would be another much anticipated tradition here amongst the student body. The contestants on the other hand were a different story. The contestants entertained the audience in another thrilling night of laughs and unforgettable moments. What felt like quite the undertaking by the ASB officers was showcased by a group of guys who love to have fun and put in just enough time to make sure they didn’t forget what to do on stage. “I personally think we should have worked on our performances a lot more than we did...It wasn’t the most ideal way to rehearse, but I think that we still put on a pretty good show considering the practice times that we had,” commented Micah Charleston (11), the youngest contestant. With each year that passes the contestants have found that it is harder and harder to be original. Eduardo Ortiz (12) felt that coming up with new and fresh ways of entertaining the audience was very difficult.“The brainstorming took longer than the actual setup, coming up with ideas was hard,” said Ortiz. A requirement to being involved with the pageant each committee member and contestant is required to attend three rehearsals and a full dress rehearsal prior to the night of the contest. With the laid back attitudes of contestants row this

year, even with the seemingly redundant rehearsals the work was never tedious. “It was really fun working with all my buds. Sometimes it would get hard to get everyone on the same page though,” confessed Aric Scholer (12). The objective scoring challenge was bestowed on three qualified judges; George Palmiter (last years Mr. Gresham winner), Jennifer Wilson (Rhythmettes Coach), and Miss Oregon, Caroline McGowan had a front row seat to the show, but were tasked with the challenge of crowning a winner. Not unexpected, Grant Warner, being his normal flirty self, asked for Miss Oregon’s number. Jake Sundquist, showed off his amazing guitar skills with his band, and Aric Scholer treated the audience to a dance off between himself and our very own TJ Roebuck(12). All of which were definite highlights of the night. As the night came to a close, the judges had picked two finalists: Micah Charlston and Aric Scholer, with Scholer taking the crown. “Winning felt awesome. I’m just glad that the true winner was recognized. I mean, . . . I was born to be the Mr. of all of Gresham.” Aric Scholer said laughing.

Little did he realize that his positive influence would have as an inspirational coach leading his peers from the mat side. After suffering a disappointing Junior season ending due to health problem, Taylor mental toughness would be tested once again as he found that he was going to have to received surgery on his knee prior to the 11-12 season for a pre-existing medical issue, once again sidelining him for the duration of his senor season. Understanding that his own successes would not be on the mat this year. Myers focused his attention on his teammates, doing all he could to help them achieve their goals for the year. “Taylor Myers has been the most influential person on the team by far; even though he can’t wrestle, he provides morale support, and kicks us in the butt when we need to step it up,” commented Lane Stickell (12) Myers willingly shows up to all practices, duels and tournaments, showing his support for the team and his passion for wrestling. The coaches gave him the title of a “Mini-Coach” for the season due to his devotion to the team. “He has become an influential coach to our entire team on off the mat,” added Kyle Ackerman (12).

execution wins... always written BY: SOFIYA POPOVA

What is the team missing? What is keeping them from that first place title that they have been SO close to for the last 4 years? The answer is simple and yet very complicated. EXECUTION.

At a competition, the teams get scored by a panel of judges based on three categories: content, overall effect and execution. There is ONE rule that every dance team in the state knows... “execution always wins”. As harsh as it may sound, no matter how difficult the routine is, no matter how much you cry on the dance floor, and no matter how beautiful the costumes are - if the routine isn’t immaculately clean, then you will never get that first place trophy. What makes winning even more complicated is that every score is subjective. It’s not the amount of baskets you shoot or touchdowns you score, there is no

044-045_2-13833_000.indd 44

set amount of points for a triple turn or split leap. At the end of the day, you don’t know who won, until the judges announce the scores. YOU may think you danced perfectly, but it all comes down to what each individual judge thought. This rule stands strong with this year’s competition as well, if not even stronger. There are fifteen teams in the 6A Small division this year, and only five trophies to be won. The difference between fifth and first place will be the angle of a head or the point of a toe. With their undefeated Fall season under their belts, will the Rhythmettes have what it takes to bring home that first place banner? Or will they be lucky enough to even get a trophy?

The girls gave it their all, left everything on that dance floor. Every single girl walked off with absolutely no regrets. Unfortunately the judges didn’t think that was enough. Every team was tenths of a point away from the team ahead of them. Three out of the four judges placed the Rhythmettes into the top with scores in the 80’s and 90’s, but one gave scores that dropped them to the bottom and cost them a trophy. Even so, there were no tears from the girls, they knew that the performance was amazing, and they could not have done any better. They walked away with eighth place, and they were proud of it. They all knew that they did their best. And when it comes down to it, that’s what truly matters.

A Difficult end to a successful season

Why Not? Written By: Morriah GIfford and Kerri Ann Peetz

The use of technology is now embedded in all areas of our life, But the use of personal electronics in the classroom is still a cause for concern. One thousand, one hundred, and eighty-three. That is how many cell phones social studies teacher, Mr. Linblad, has confiscated in the past ten years. He keeps a running tally on the chalk board in his class room and now has zero tolerance for them in his class. Having a cell phone confiscated is a common dilemma on a daily basis. it is not a secret that technology has changed dramatically over the past few years, but has it gotten to the point where students can’t go as much as a school day without it? Everywhere you look you see cell phones, iPods, laptops, and games whatever it may be... it’s everywhere! Yet school rules state that phones may not be used during instructional hours, whether your “going to the bathroom” or a class room. “We think its annoying, but understandable because teachers don’t know what were doing.” Reasoned Andrea Monteblanco (10). However, Rigo Delacerda (12) and Max Tevs (10) argued that “They (phones) should be allowed, as long as the students don’t abuse the privilege.” Even so, its not likely students will be allowed to use them soon. “Cell phones are a very helpful technology, enhancing our ability to communicate. But like any tool, if not used correctly, cell phones can quickly hinder our communication.” Says Aaron Ingogolia, woods teacher. “if all people would turn off their phones at the right time, this tool would be nothing but help! Unfortunately, many adolescents abuse their tools.” Students complain of needing their phones for time, research, and calculators when in reality almost every class has a working clock, text books, and there is a library with computers. Still students complain of teachers only seeing cell phones as a disruption to learning. Nick Aicher (12) tells a different story. “My global teacher allowed us to use our phones for a poster we were making to research things, and the teacher walked past and saw several students texting instead. It only took one class period to have that privilege revoked.” There is no doubt technology will grow more and be even more important in our lives. And with that growth the schools will either grow increasingly more strict with their policies, or begin support the use of the new technologies that will be available. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

Out-shines Season

Written By: Belicia Castellano and Nicole Kobayashi

“25 years from now, this will be the basketball game that I will remember most.” - Preston Korst (12). After leading for most of the second half, Gresham trailed 40-44. With 1:34 left on the clock, De’Vauntae Hoffman (11) hit a contested three pointer in the corner in front of the Barlow fans to trim the lead to one. As the clock ticked down to 30, Spencer Kelly (12) committed a quick foul to send the Bruins to the line. Converting one of two free throws, Barlow extended their lead 45-43. With momentum and the crowd on their side, the gophers quickly moved the ball up the court. Braking down the defense, Kelly got to the rim to convert a reverse lay-up to tie the game. Barlow inbounded the ball and begun bringing it up the court. Playing tough defense, Hoffman poked the ball out of a Barlow player’s hand, tipping it to Joey Constien (12). With the game on the line, Constien took the ball to the basket. Barlow closed quickly fouling him to deny the score but sending him to the line to decide the game. “While the loudest high-school crowd I have ever heard was screaming and trying to knock Joey’s concentration, he sunk both free-throws,” shared Trevor Dietz (12). Following the two made free throws, Barlow was left with just 4 seconds remaining to tie or win the game with a 3 point shot. After the in bounds pass the Bruins missed a desperation 30 footer at the buzzer. As the Buins walked off the court in disbelief, the Gophers rushed the court in hysteria celebrating their victory, . This win marked the first time in five years that the Gophers have beaten the Bruins. “I was happy for the kids, because we struggled all season long, and because of the fact that we had lost our last 8 games, it was nice to find some success against Barlow; they truly deserved it,” stated head coach Mike Melton. “This win was a dream come true. Beating Barlow on their court, and in the fashion that we did it, is something you joke around about at practice. This was one of the happiest moments of my life and I will never forget it. I could never have done it alone, and wouldn’t want to do it with any other teammates than mine. Our team pushed down the wall that was standing in our way. That game not only made our team better, but made us a family,” concluded Constien.

Determined in Regulation

After a TRIPLE OVERTIME loss at Barlow the Written By: Lauren laasko lady Gophs settled the score in regulation “We took them into triple overtime the first time we played them earlier on in the season and we knew we were going to win this time,” added Pearly Walton (11). Both teams were ready for round two, Barlow hoping to stay on top, while Gresham was ready to redeem themselves. The crowd was rilled up and ready for a great game. “The whole game was so intense and the crowd definitely helped pump us up,” said Quinn Santangelo (11). The score was close the whole first half with the lead quickly switching back and forth. The second half was where the magic happened, “We went to the next half of the game with a lot of fight and ready to win,” beamed Hailee Trapold (11).

048-049_2-13833_000.indd 49

The defining moment was different for each player but for Walton, “The defining moment had to be when there was seven seconds left on the clock and Barlow’s only option was to foul and we got to shoot free throws so I knew we were going to win.” When the buzzer rang at the end of fourth quarter, the score board shined the final score, 41 to 39 with Gophers in the lead. “Beating Barlow meant everything to me. We have had a rough couple of seasons and haven’t beat Barlow for the past 3 years until now. Also by having the fans there, it allowed us to show our school that we are a new and improved team,” concluded Trapold.

Opening

to the unknown

Written by: Kendra Hammons & Lillibeth Vasquez

Overcoming large class sizes teachers work hard to ensure a positive learning experience for their students to uncover the mystery of science. Science classes range from Botany, the scientific study of plants; to Physics, the science of matter and energy and their interactions. In every science class, you have many different kinds of experiments; some have been known to get a little stinky, stinking up the whole west side of the school. Despite the stinky experiments, what do students think about science? When polled, students had many opinions about science classes. “For me personally it can be fun when we do labs, but doing all the math that comes with science... can be difficult,” explained Dominik Riskin (10). “It can be fun at times if the labs and experiments are fun” said Irene Medina (10) When you hear the word science, you might think it could be boring, but students had other experiences. “Making delicious peanut brittle has probably been the best experiment this year in my chemistry class,” stated Aliyah Valdez (10). By making the learning fun students are more likely to understand the concepts. “The [fun] experiments are much easier and more entertaining to do,” said Catrina Kwong.” Teachers’ feelings about their students and their experience in teaching science is very important. “I like seeing kids solve problems and use data to defend their ideas,” said science department chair Kathy Childress with excitement. When asked about what he liked about teaching science, chemistry teacher Cyrus Harshfield stated “I like] everything, the subject matter, the labs, the variety of topics, the kids, the grade level, the smells, the sounds, the mystery.” Just like with science experiments things can change unpredictably. When asked if here is a difference between this year’s science classes and last year’s, Kathy Childress said, “Class size! I am averaging 39, and it used to be 29.” Harshfield adds, “This makes lectures and labs difficult. There is limited space to move students, so talking is an issue which affects students learning. Students have to make more of an effort on their own, if they choose to not listen it is difficult for me to help them.” Teachers agree that they will work hard despite the problems and continue to do the stinky and fun experiments. Meanwhile when approaching the west side of the school always be prepared because you never know what you’ll hear, smell or see.

“We truly do everything that goes on. We give money to other clubs and support our sports teams along with other events. We bring the fun,”

It is unfortunate that these thoughts are said aloud by a large population of the student body in our school. “I, myself, spent a large amount of time tearing apart student council. I took for granted all the events put on by leadership and never accredited student council for anything. To me, student council was just a bunch of kids who sat around and did nothing, but now I can see from their perspective and see how the tables have turned,” remarked Senior Class President, Laura Phillips (12). Before the next school year even began, student council was immersed into endless plans for homecoming, floats, parades, dances, and skits. “We don’t think anyone has any idea how difficult a leadership position is. It is solely our responsibility that an event works out,” added Mikey Downey (10). A float doesn’t just appear overnight; there are multiple late night trips to the store, never-ending checklists, a wide range of job responsibilities, and above all: getting participation from the student body. Leadership spends hours upon hours outside of class coming up with ideas for the student body. Nothing we ever do is for ourselves, every event, every dance, assembly, and show is for our fellow student body who elected us to be their leaders.” Your words hurt. It is unbelievably difficult to spend so many days and hours of your life putting forth all your ideas and effort to make an event fun; when students around you only notice the negative things. Instead of a simple compliment, people find it easier to tear down student council. If the DJ plays a bad song at Snoball, all of a sudden the world is ending and it is all our fault. Students may think that the Student Council room is just a hang out room, but it is not. There has never been a dull moment. Even after a huge event like Mr. Gresham is over, we don’t have time to sit back and relax. We debrief an event and get straight to work on the next big thing.

You don’t hear those words enough. It is time to end these negotiations and avoid a strike. The teachers union and school district cannot agree on eight items. Some of these items are money issues, which directly affect the district’s budget. Some of these items are language issues, which do not directly affect the budget. I realize that the district must meet certain deadlines in order to prepare for the next school year. Some of these deadlines include the budget process that starts in the next couple of months. With that said, I understand the district’s desire to have certainty regarding its projected balances. For that reason, I would like to see the Gresham-Barlow Education Association concede on some of the issues that affect the district’s bottom line. I know these are tough times for everyone, but I think this is necessary. On the other hand, a few items that cannot be agreed upon have no impact on the district’s budget. Take switching to a seven-period day, for example. Fixing the high school schedule will not, like we all once thought, have a budget impact. If it is not a money When it comes to instruction hours, the district should issue, it should be left to change another eliminate monthly late starts in the high schools. Many high time. After all, our district has gone all schools in our area use the block schedule. The district could this time without teacher collaboration do some collaboration of its own and find out how those distime every Wednesday. I believe the districts maximize instructional time with the block schedule. trict can survive without it. There’s simply I know many students who wanted to pursue a career in no valid reason to have staff collaboration education. Now, they are completely turned off at the thought between the different teaching levels. of teaching because of the events that have transpired these

past few months between the association and the district. The school district needs to look at what lesson they are teaching to the students it serves. This is not how you achieve compromise. I’m not putting all of the responsibility solely on the district, though. If teachers end up striking, it won’t be their fault, either. It would be the fault of everyone on both sides of the table. Nevertheless, the only people who will truly suffer are those who weren’t at the table at all – the students of this district. Regardless of the outcome, I, along with the students I represent, stand strongly behind our teachers. Community members, you can lend your voice to help students. We do not want to see a strike. No learning will be achieved during a strike, further reducing the amount of real instruction time we receive for this school year. Contact the board and express the views of all students: Avoid a strike, no matter what it takes. On another note, I would like to address those readers who have consistently bashed teachers (mostly online) as “greedy whiners” or something to that effect. I personally invite you to e-mail me, and we can arrange a tour of my school. I’ll show you just how wrong you are.

“It is very disappointing that it’s come down to this and how our schools are falling apart.”

“I think the teachers have valid reasons to go on strike. They aren’t getting the benefits they all deserve for the amount of extra work they put in for their students. The district should stop making so many cuts. The teachers have already agreed to have their pay cut and work more hours. The district is not being fair. I think if this is what the teachers need to do to get the point across, then by all means they have my support.” - Gabby Conner (10) “I think it would be really nice to have that many days off school. However being in full IB and being a softball player it will affect me a lot. If they go on strike for a great amount of time we will be given a coach that is not our normal one which will definitely affect how we play because most likely it will be someone we don’t know or trust as well as the coaches we have now. As for IB a lot of things are due towards the end of the year as well as the IB test and the strike will make things more stressful.” - Danielle Clifford(11)

It’s a game

within a game by nicole kobayashi and belicia castellano

Signals play a significant role in the game of baseball. A movement of a hand, touch of a hat or slide of an arm indicates to players which move to make; whether it be a steal, or to take a pitch. Baseball is a game with many maneuvers and strategies dictated through “signs” which are sometimes intricate and complex, while at other times quite simple. “We use signals so we can relay information with each other without letting other teams know what we are trying to say. It’s like our own sign language; a secret foreign language just for us to understand,” revealed Clay Mott (12). A good sign system will include “indicators” that alert the players that a “live” sign may be on its way, “wipe-offs” that negate every live sign that has been flashed to that point, “activators” that tell the player to proceed with the designated play (a green light) and “decoys” which are meaningless signs, at least in the context of the sequence that they appear.

“Signs are a part of the game. You gradually learn them as you get older, and you’re able to hold on to more. You are expected to know them. There is no playbook like there is in football,” voiced Devon Sheilds (10). Signs dictate how the game is played; the players watch their coaches give signs but they also watch their opponents coaches, to figure out their system. “We have signs for every play. Whether it be from catcher to pitcher, coach to player, or even player to player, there is a designated signal for what is happening at all times,” mentioned Brandon Fast (12). When in the dugout, the players and coaching staff are constantly watching their opponents for a breakthrough in their sign system. “It’s all part of the game, we watch them throughout the innings. We try and figure them out by checking their (the opponent) consistencies of signs, and the order that they are given,” answered Kadyn Nannini (12). Through the complications of trying to decipher opponents signs, or even just memorizing them yourself, baseball has been proven to be a complex sport. Overall, these boys have proven themselves to come out with a successful season from the success of winning their game within a game.

This class is offered to all students, who have the option to take automotive classes ranging anywhere from the most basic skills to the most advanced where more technical aspects of automotive are taught. Even girls choose to sign up for these classes, “I would like to see more. Every year I get a few. This year is a good year and the girls that have signed up are out-performing many of the boys,” commented Michael Ruff, the Mechanical Tech Teacher. Automotive classes can give students many life skills, that countless students do use. “After taking Auto class, I know the importance of engines. Plus I’ll know what to do if my car breaks down,” asserted Jasmine Reynolds (10). “I could go on and on... but, to put it in a nutshell, students will fall into two categories. Students will use the skills they learned here to work on their own vehicles [and

Unfortunately, they “have dried up completely” and “we are in dire need of newer vehicles.” The supplies are short, and the engines used in the class are getting old as well, states Ruff. “The money that comes from the district has been on a steady decline since I started teaching here eleven years ago. The money from the Federal Perkins grant is keeping the class afloat,” said Ruff

for a play that would amaze you takes hard work and a lot of determination. Weekends and free hours are spent preparing costumes, rehearsing lines, fixing last minute details such as lights and curtains, lugging around props to their appropriate places and trying not to faint on stage. Every show is different, each with their own style, quirks and uniqueness. This year, the fine drama department is going to perform Alice in Wonderland, a classic story known for its larger than life characters and the wacky imagination that comes with it. It gave rise to many adaptations, from famous cartoons to real live films that earned millions in the box office. Now, Gresham High is going to give this tale its own twist, directed by the one and only Mrs. Sara Dempsey. “To begin the production, we are writing the script. This is the very first time I have ever produced a full length play that is an original play written by a student. An alumni student and I are collaborating and creating the script,” she revealed. Preparation is key for the actors and actresses so they can make a wonderful experience for us in our seats while watching them perform. Austin Joseph (11), who landed the role of the White Rabbit, said with excitement, “Personally, I take a lot of time preparing, along with watching the movies, to figure out the interpretation we choose to take.” Many are proud to be a part of the cast and working the sets because its so well known. For Ashley Lloyd (12), it even fulfills a childhood dream, “I’m extremely excited to be doing “Alice in Wonderland” as the spring show because I grew up watching the movies and always dreamed of being in it,” she exerted. Most of the cast has performed in one acts, musicals or plays, but for one freshman girl, this will be the first time she performs in a play. Madison Ryder (9) voiced happily, “It feels great to be apart of ‘Alice’! Being one out of two freshman girls being cast is an honor.” Making it seem real is the biggest challenge. New tricks and special effects are always present in every show. We tried to dig in a little deeper to get more information about what they are trying to pull off but when asked, the cast said that it would be a surprise for the audience.

The SUN Community School, Credit Recovery and Step Up serve as support services at Gresham High School that contribute help to students. These support services offers a variety of classes, including credit recovery options, tutoring, arts, sports, and other recreational activities. SUN provides a great opportunity for youth to achieve academic success, gain new skills, and meet new friends. SUN is committed to providing quality extended day classes to students which gives students a chance to expand their talents in break-dancing, ukulele, drawing and many more. As well as maintaining the safety and fun that this comforting environment provides, students who enroll are also exposed to a vast amount of knowledge that could be previously non-obtainable. By processing these extra curricular activities, students are better molding the clay of their own thought and insight, thus becoming more comfortable with the ways college courses run in their near-approaching future. Step Up is another Support Service at Gresham High School where kids are free to express themselves and get help with identity development. Step Up offers leadership camps, which enhance better relationships with others and making a difference towards

064-065_1-13833_000.indd 64

a better community. Not only does this provide another safe environment for people to grow and learn a more depth understanding of one’s self, this can help create a more positive attitude throughout our student body. Step Up works to find out what a student’s dream is. “ We work with the student to build a path to connect them to the future they want,” stated Step Up coordinator Kathleen Paradis. Credit recovery is a great way for students to make up a credit in a quick and affordable way. “It’s a great way to give students a second chance where teachers and staff work with you and support you,” according to Maya Smith (10). Credit recovery is an absolutely required choice for some people, due to a previously failed class. It also helps gain a better understanding of whichever field they earlier failed, hearing it from a different view and teacher, who most likely has completely differing methods of teaching. These support services are more than just programs where you can get help on your homework but build a strong community and relationship with others.

Athletes decide all

phases of the match Players are required to judge their matches which can effect the outcome of the contest. Written by: Catrina Kwong and Lia Valdez

Tennis is one of the few sports where you make the call who wins the point or not. The players themselves are the ones who decide whether their opponent’s shots are in or out and keep track of their own score. It might not seem like a big deal, but it can have an affect on how people play. In some cases, it makes the player focus better on the match, while other times, it can cause some complications. “I HATE calling my own shots,” exclaimed Brian Chin (12). “When the ball is hit back to me, it’s not my first instinct to decide whether the ball is in or out. It makes it complicated to keep score because players are more focused on calling the ball in or out than playing the game.” Calling the shots can also cause problems as it gives players opportunities to cheat, but usually this isn’t a problem. “A lot of people will call your serve out when really they just can’t get to it or hit it and it’s close,” stated Danika Hazard (11). “Most of the time if you just ask them nicely to stop cheating, and they get embarrassed and stop.” But come on, no one likes to be cheated. “It makes me really mad because we are just trying to have fun,” said Jeffrey Dezellem (10). If the

opponent does keep stealing points from you, you have the ability to call for a line judge who can overrule bad calls and help keep track of the score. “I have encountered a match where my opponent was making unfair calls,” recalled Aminah Khinnarath (11). “When I would hit shots that were close to the line, or clearly in, she would call them out. I ended up having to have a line judge watch our match. Since she continued to make bad calls, the line judge had to say, ‘You know that when the ball hits the line, it's in, right?’ I ended up winning this match, but without the line judge the result may have been different.” The need to call for a line judge is extremely rare, but many players still say they’d prefer to have a line judge since it would ensure that the match is fair. Coaches seem to have a different opinion though. “Players judging their own matches and keeping their own score is one of the things I like best about tennis - the sport teaches integrity and fair play in a way that most high school sports can't,” commented varsity girls coach Alan Simpson. “[It] shows the importance of character and sportsmanship,” agreed the boys’ varsity tennis coach, Todd Nagel. Being the judge of your own match might complicate the game and affect the mental game in tennis. However, it’s what makes high school tennis a more interesting and unique of a sport.

Jason Russel shared his idea to bring the world together through his video which premiered on March 5th, 2012.““Making Kony famous” can all bring us together if we all really try,” agrees Jacky Bertholomey (12). In just one week, the video reached over 80 million views. He brought the world’s attention to a severe issue happening in Uganda and other locations around South Central Africa. Over 30,000 children were being kidnapped by Joseph Kony, forced to kill their parents and join his rebel group, ”The L.R.A,” and also, kill their own parents. This movement blasted all over social networking sites, and by the following day, there were over 1 million pledging for the “Kony 2012 Cover The Night Event”, which encourages people to print out fliers and posters to get the word out there. But wait, is there an ulterior motive? Are they trying to get your support to start another war without you realizing it? Without the public support, where would they get the tax dollars to fund these wars? Are we being manipulated? What the video did not mention is that Joseph Kony hasn’t even been in Uganda for years. But, what has been in Uganda, and still is today, are oil reserves. Is this blind patriotism? Hmm, Kony or Oil? Just think about it...Here are a few reactions to the movement.

is always unpredictable. It can be extremely cold at one point, and then the sun shining the next. For some, the weather affects them negatively, “I love high jump because it’s tight and I can show off my hops; but the extremely cold weather ruins my mood and my “A” game,” admits Micah Tolai (11). For others the freezing rain doesn’t affect them at all, “When it rains I feel like doing much better than I usually do because it gets me so pumped to do my triple jump,” said Chido Nmereole (10). “people get so worried about the rain, they don’t pay attention to what they came to do.” Nmereole continues. People handle the weather differently, most just wear layer upon layer. “I definitely put on more layers in the cold,” Gerry Garcia (11) admits. This year started out pretty rocky, with 2 meets being cancelled due to bipolar nature of our weather. It’s definitely very unlikely for a track meet to be cancelled. According to athletic director Rick Elsbery “In 40 years that I’ve been working, this was the first year that a track meet got cancelled”. The first track meet for this season was supposed to be at home but Gresham’s track was flooded due to a dysfunctional drain system. “We have endured this sort of issue before, it just wasn’t to the level that occurred to cancel the meet.” Stated by Elsbery. This weather makes it harder for people to practice, “Numb fingers, cold feet, it kind of sucks,” admits Tristan Girton (9). The weather may always a guessing game, but all athletes face the same elements in training and competition. The athlete who can prepare themselves to perform in all condictions and adapt to those conditions will have a greater amount of confidence when unfavorable weather conditions present themself each spring.

Still, it was measured at 166-5. That measurement told her she was ready to do something much bigger. “I wasn’t sure if I’d get (the record) in this meet or further down to the end of the year,” Haley said. Now she has the remainder of the season, and all of her senior season, to put the record even farther out of reach. Dean Crouser, father of Sam and Haley (as well as their coach), said he didn’t know what to expect Friday – but figured it might be longer than 170 feet and less than 190. “It’s overwhelming,” he said. “I can’t even put it into words yet. I can’t. You had a hunch it was coming and she’s done all of the work. That’s the first thing I said to her: This is (for) all of that stuff that you’ve done. This wasn’t luck, at all.” A week of training in sunny Southern California during Spring Break also helped her get ready to throw far. In one workout she threw past 50 meters (164 feet) five consecutive times. After her throw was re-measured with a steel tape and her javelin was taken to be weighed and analyzed, Crouser still had two more attempts. But the emotion of the moment was too much to set aside and find focus again. She took a third attempt that went too low, and she voluntarily put her foot over the line to scratch it. She turned to her family and said she was done for the day. The next shot at the record, her own, will have to wait until the next competition.

BEAVERTON, Ore. – The idea that Haley Crouser is the most athletic member of her illustrious family isn’t a new one. The junior from Gresham (Gresham, Ore.) is an all-state volleyball player and a potential star some day in the heptathlon. On Friday, she joined her older brother Sam in the U.S. high school record book, throwing the javelin 181 feet, 2 inches on her second attempt at the Aloha Relays. It was one of the first sunny, reasonably warm days of the season in the Portland area and Crouser made the most of it. After the javelin struck pay dirt, Crouser glanced at the measuring tape and leapt into the air to celebrate the first prep throw over 180 feet. Avione Allgood of Legacy (North Las Vegas, Nev.) held the record of 176-8 for about nine months. “It was really exciting,” she said. “I’ve been training since November and it’s been a long buildup to this point.” Haley goes into the record books with Sam (255-4 in 2010) as the only brother-sister combination in history. Throw in cousin Ryan, who broke the indoor shot put and discus records last year, and it’s easy to see why the Crousers have become America’s First Family of Throwing. All three of the Crousers stand to make some noise at the Olympic Trials in June in their home state. “Since Sam has (the record) and I have it, it’s just an unreal feeling,” Haley said. “When I was younger I would have never expected this to happen.” The record throw changed what had been a frustrating hour at the Aloha Relays. She was entered in the shot put, 100-meter hurdles and javelin – three events bunched close together on the schedule. After a delay at the shot put for the competition to start, Crouser fired off three rushed attempts – all of them long enough to win the event. Meanwhile, she didn’t have enough time to warm up for the hurdles so her coaches made the decision to pull her out of the event less than 10 minutes before it was due to start. That left her with a bit more time to prepare for the javelin, where she knew she was ready for a big throw. “I was really frustrated,” she said. “I wanted to run the hurdles. I was looking forward to good competition, but my coach

Team members Deal with the pressures of the depth chart.

You would think that the opportunity to be selected to represent the team as the number one player would be an honor that most would strive for, however this title is not always coveted by all. With five competitive varsity spots up for grabs, the players that fill these spots can vary week to week. “The coach decides who plays number one by having a qualifying match, which is where we go on the course and play a match against our teammates. Whoever gets the best score gets to play as number one,” explains Zoey Talent (12). The pressure to be the top player can be too much for some and just what others need to play to their full potential. Though some players don’t enjoy playing number one, everybody has an ideal number they like playing. For Joey Constien (12), that number is three. “I like playing three, because I feel less stressed playing there compared to one or two,” said Constien. Golf takes a lot of dedication to get where you want to be, like any sport or activity it requires year long practice to improve your score.

Golfers must be able to self-evaluate themselves to know what part of their game needs the most improvement. “I like working on my driving because it feels good to smack the heck out of it,” revealed Meaghan Allison (9). Every aspect of the game is important, but some are more important than others. “I try to work on my putting a lot, because it is the most important and can make a big difference in your final score,” affirmed Jessie Stone (11). For those who play golf understand the benefits of playing a lifelong sport, and most were raised on the game. “I have played golf ever since I could walk and I enjoy it a lot. I have always played golf so it’s really just a part of my life,” shared Austin Spicer (11).

At first sight, overwhelming thoughts are rushing through your head. “Did I wear the right “FIRST” outfit?” “What is it going to be like to have to start the whole social status ladder over again?” This initial year of high school brings the opportunity to be involved in new experiences, and meet new people. It’s important to realize that while the seemingly complicated “first” we will experience, they’re just the next big “things” in our life.

[ Sophomores] You’re neither on the top or the bottom. Sophomore year is the “in-between” year for most. Not yet a junior, but not even close to the wide-eyed freshman you might have been a year ago. You’ve begun to establish your character and what life is all about; the good, the bad, and how “it” can be a little complicated.

You know you’re a Junior when you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Your past academic successes now directly affect your current course load. Some students find themselves stressed out with a schedule full of IB classes, while others are making a mad dash to get back on track before their senior year. You now realize how to strategically procrastinate, how to study for those proficiency based tests, become involved as you so desire, and most of all, that the social seen can either be your best friend, or your biggest enemy. Congratulations, you are now next in line to the top of the social ladder.

seniors You know you are a senior when you’re hit with the sudden realization that the real world is near. This is the end of the four years of being involved in after school activities, IB courses, and social events. This is the point where all of your hard work has paid off; where you feel proud to accept the diploma that is near. With the complications of our lives, it is hard to balance everything, which strikes most seniors with senioritis: a crippling illness that leads to most seniors suffering from symptoms such as comatose behavior, unrestrained wearing of sweatpants, old T-shirts and sweatshirts, a lack of studying, skipping classes, and an uninterested attitude. The only known cure for this crippling disease is the miracle known as graduation.

Expanding our Reach Staff sets new precedents for the program

To say this was “just another year” in room 508 would be an understatement. A year filled with change, uncertainty, turmoil, and chaos, still boasted an annual we are all proud of. Our “complicated” journey began in early September with the goal of producing the first spring delivered yearbook in more than 50 years. A fairly “green” class, we initially lacked the resolve to undertake this monumental adjustment to meet the publisher’s deadline schedule. Even while knowing the clock was ticking a little faster than recent years; the students progressed slowly through the fall season with the deadlines seeming so far off. After developing the design concept and initiating the coverage of the fall content pages, the students were saddled with the realization that I [their advisor] was going to be on paternity leave for a staggering three months. While the long term substitute did the best job she could to see that the program continued in a positive direction, the staff had their own ideas and pushed her to see that she keep them on pace. I was welcomed back to school in late January with a great deal of stress as the first round of proofs were due the next day. As the year continued, the students began to realize the urgency of the looming deadlines. Getting the work done in the crunch, the staff worked towards completing all three deadlines projected by Walsworth. Spring showers arrived and the student’s pressed ahead to complete the book prior the pending teacher strike on April 25. With the uncertainty of the future, the class scrambled to collect the remaining pictures, quotes, and stories needed to meet to final publishing deadline to complete the book on time.

Even with the award winning status of the Gresham HS yearbook program, the sales of the yearbook have declined in total by nearly 40 percent over the last 6 years. In an effort to battle the decline in student support, the class worked hard to create a buzz for the upcoming yearbook that now reaches beyond its pages. The process of creating Google + and YouTube accounts to host the additional multimedia content was an innovative storage solution to providing the increased amount of pictures and video the student body desires. The creation of the supplemental DVD is another first for the class. These extensions, though seemingly complicated in their inception, were not difficult to incorporate. In addition they add so much to the experience of reading the book. Although I know my “kids” took advantage of the days I was on leave, sick, at a convention, or district meeting, etc. . . . and, didn’t always want to make time to work outside of class. . . they got it done, and for that, I am so proud of this year’s staff. Making a spring delivery is practice that is concurred by most programs around the country. For us it is an enormous achievement. Let’s just say for us, “It’s just the next big thing.”
