The Junior League of Phoenix

touch-a-truck event Written by: Sophie Hill, Phoenix Country Day School Hey, I’m Sophie Hill! I am a junior at Phoenix Country Day and my passion is writing. I also love traveling, especially for the cultural experience and the shopping. This year, one of my goals is to learn the art of making an amazing cappuccino.

G

lossy finishes, delicious food, and fun for the whole family; what could be better than that? Sponsored by the wonderful Junior League, the Touch-A-Truck event promises to bring fun to all demographics, especially the little ones. Coming up on October 12 from 10am to 2pm, at the Paradise Valley Mall by the North parking lot. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to explore the vehicles that support and assist our community on a dayto-day basis. While gathering an abundant amount of knowledge about these trucks and cars, there is also the rare chance to chat with the individuals who work with them everyday. If the work trucks are not necessarily your style, no worries, there will be numerous enriching activities set up for your enjoyment. Adventurous obstacle courses, bouncy houses, and scrumptiously savvy food trucks are all

sure to please. All proceeds from this event go directly back to the Junior League, who will continue to help and inspire the community with charity events like this one. Two of the JL’s main programs are Kids in the Kitchen, which focuses on promoting a healthy lifestyle for kids; and ROCKETS a science-based program for kids. You will get an incredible chance to explore what these programs are all about and how to get involved with them outside of Touch-A-Truck. Also, if Junior League sounds like something you would like to join, this event is a great way to get a feel for the organization. For more information on the Junior League or Touch-A-Truck please visit this website, www.jlp.org. Touch-A-Truck is going to be such great time, so grab your friends and family and come to the event!

Don’t FALL Behind With Your Body Goals

I

f you are tempted to hide your figure in those fall sweaters, let Custom Body Contour of Scottsdale help you achieve a body you’re comfortable with before the holidays and all year through. CBC feels like an elite spa and what they offer is equally pleasant, unlike surgical procedures promising similar results. “Many of my clients come in motivated by an upcoming special occasion, want to target the most stubborn areas that diet and exercise just haven’t been able to, or they simply are ready to start focusing on themselves and want help to look and feel their best,” says owner Vickie Kuhn. “They come in once a week, relax with what feels like a warm massage for an hour and leave with visible results. I am so pleased to share in their success!” Custom Body Contour’s treatments combine 2 technologies, ultrasonic and radiofrequency waves, to literally melt fat from those problem areas. So how does it work? A trained technician administers the treatment which first breaks up the stored fat and then liquefies it so that it can be naturally metabolized by the body’s lymphatic system and then eliminated through the liver and kidneys. The process allows fat cells to shrink and also stimulates collagen, which tightens skin, for a more toned, sleek appearance. Yes, it even works on cellulite! “Most of our clients see a change after their first treatment, with a typical protocol of 4 to 6,” says Kuhn. “On average, clients lose more than two inches when we measure right at the navel, a result comparable to liposuction, but with none of the pain, risks, or cost of surgery.” And now, for those who desire the “fast track” for weight loss as well, CBC is excited to offer TAIslim – a nutritionally balanced, 100% premium cold-processed whey protein meal replacement that has been proven in double-blind studies to help people lose 8 times more body weight! The all-natural shakes are rich, creamy, and taste so delicious you can’t believe they’re good for your fitness goals! For probably less than what you normally spend on a meal they keep you feeling satisfied and energized for hours and increase your body’s fat-burning ability!

Finding your purpose: Choosing the right major for a fulfilling career

A

sk any first- or second-graders what they want to be when they grow up and the responses will likely be old standbys, including firefighter, police officer or teacher. However, asking a high schooler the same question may elicit a response painted with hesitation and uncertainty. Choosing a major is a difficult decision for most students to make, especially teens who are still trying to define who they are. Not only does a major cement a career direction, but also potential income and upward mobility within a chosen profession. About 80 percent of students end up changing their major at least once, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. On average, college students change their major at least three times over the course of their college career. And depending on how drastically the major changes, students may find that they have taken unnecessary courses and incurred extra costs for credit hours they don’t need. Selecting the right career path starts with students understanding their true passion. For instance, at Grand Canyon University, students are encouraged to answer five questions to help guide them toward, not necessarily a profession, but an area of study: 1. Where are your strengths? 2. What are your passions? 3. How long are you willing to stay in school?

4. What kind of work do you see yourself doing? 5. What kind of life do you want to lead? Once students have a better understanding of themselves, it becomes easier to find a career direction. GCU also has a self-assessment tool that measures interests, preferences and skills, and suggests possible career paths based on individual results. Based on a student’s answers, the Career Compass then scans more than 1,200 different career paths and professions to determine which ones best fit the student’s profile, including employment prospects, salary ranges and mobility. After finding a handful of careers in which they are interested, students can learn more about the professions by interviewing people in the field or finding a mentor, job-shadowing and even seeking out part-time work or an internship so they can get a taste for the dayto-day responsibilities. Choosing a major can seem a daunting decision, and one with long-term ramifications. But through thoughtful introspection and careful consideration, students can be confident in their choice. Jacqueline Smith is director of Career Services at Grand Canyon University. For more information about choosing a career and to access the Career Compass, visit gcu. edu/Career-Services.php

workshopsaz.org My name is Brenden and I am in the seventh grade at St. Thomas the Apostle. Two years ago, after my hockey team lost a game, my team and the other team lined up to shake hands, which is customary in hockey. Some of the other team’s players wouldn’t shake hands with our team. This was worse to me than losing the game, and when I told my Grandma this, she told me to figure out a way to promote good sportsmanship. After many tries, I designed a bracelet that says “Good Sports Rock” with two hands about to shake. I then asked my Dad to help me design a website, www.goodsportsrock.com. I then partnered with Special Olympics Arizona to donate a portion of the proceeds of each bracelet that I sell. I am very happy with my bracelets, and am now beginning to do fundraisers for teams and schools, so they can raise money. With all the poor sportsmanship we see in the media today, my goal is to remind everyone that character matters, both in sports and in school.

Decorating With Pumpkins Pumpkins are easy decorations perfect for any time from September through November, and with so many different ways to add them to your autumn décor, you can use pumpkins everywhere, inside and out! Enhancing Your Pumpkins Before you set out pumpkins as decorations, you may want to add some accents for even more beautiful and unique décor. Popular and easy options include:  Carving: Carved pumpkins are always a seasonal favorite, but cutting a pumpkin will cause it to go soft and spoil more quickly. This isn’t a problem if you only plan to use the pumpkins for shortterm decorations, but take care to minimize carving if they will be used for several weeks. Pinned Accents: Pinning a ribbon or rick-rack around a pumpkin gives it instant color and a crafty touch. Beads can also be easily pinned onto pumpkins in creative swirls or other decorative shapes. Pins will not cause spoilage as quickly as carving, but should still be used minimally if the pumpkin will be a decoration for weeks. Painting: Painting a pumpkin is a fast way to turn it into a unique decoration, and paint will not accelerate any rotting or softening of the fruit. Autumn colors and warm tones are a great choice, or metallic shades give a pumpkin an elegant touch.

Pumpkins come in a wide range of shapes, colors, and sizes, and even if you prefer a plain, simple pumpkin, there are many great ways to decorate with it. Adding Pumpkins to Your Décor From easy placements to elaborate arrangements, there are plenty of festive ways to decorate with pumpkins, including: Pretty Piles: Piling pumpkins of different sizes and colors into rustic tumblesis a fast, simple way to decorate with these iconic autumn accents. Piles could be positioned on alongside an outdoor bench, framing a doorway, or inside an empty fireplace or firepit.

Autumn Arrangements: Add small or medium-sized pumpkins to an autumn centerpiece with fall grasses, colored leaves, miniature hay bales, fall candles, and bare twigs. This can look stunning on a dining table, mantle, or other large surface. Wonderful Windows: Small pumpkins can be lined up along a windowsill for fast autumn décor, or slightly larger pumpkins can easily be added to an outdoor planter or window box to add more autumn color just when flowers may be fading. Topiary Stack: Create a stunning stack of pumpkins by using a piece of rebar or a thin metal pole pushed through fruits of graduated sizes with the largest on the bottom. The pole will keep the pumpkins in an orderly stack to create a colorful topiary for a porch or deck. Easy Vase: Turn a small pumpkin into an instant vase for fall flowers by cutting out the stem and creating a small hollow in the center. Insert moist floral foam to help hold the flowers, and opt for mums, gerbera daisies, or other autumn blooms. Pumpkins are a versatile, inexpensive accent that can be added to any autumn décor. Whether you grow your own pumpkins or purchase them every fall, there will always be a way you can put them to beautiful use. Original article found on agway.com

Interview with Cornerstone Wellness Questions by: Rana Roudi My name is Rana Roudi, and I am a junior at Phoenix Country Day School. I love playing tennis, skiing, and photography.

Can you give me a brief summary about your wellness center and the goal of it? The wellness center is a multi-disciplinary integrated holistic patient centered clinic designed to get patients out of pain and on the road to wellness. What are all of the different services you offer? Which one is the best or most popular for teens? We offer a wide variety of services including: Laser therapy, therapeutic massage, B12 injections, trigger point injections, physical rehabilitation, chiropractic and on sight digital x-ray. The goal of the clinic is to get patients out of pain and to severely increase their quality of life without drugs. Clinics like this better our community by giving people alternative approaches to pain management that not only work but also inspire people to get healthy. What is the most common issue people come to the center for? The most common issue that we treat is patients with disc problems. About 50% of the population has spinal disc problems

ranging from disc bulges and herniation’s to the even more common arthritis. We have high tech equipment called a decompression table that enables us to systematically and successfully treat patients with disc issues. What is the main issue you see with teens and what is your advice to them? The most common issue that we treat teens with is headaches. Headaches are not normal! Many headaches can be prevented with good posture. Bad posture leads to structural problems in the spine, which stresses out muscles and leads to headaches. Most of the headaches we treat in our clinic get relief with as few as 3 or 4 treatments. The best advice that I can give teens is to text with your head looking straight. Bring your phone up to about eye level and tuck your elbows into your chest to rest your arms for you marathon texters!

Student Succeeds CEE’s Spirit Squad Chandler with One-to-One Instruction Values that I’d like to instill with the girls on the squad are: Respect for one another & those around you, Teamwork with all the girls within the squad, and to go out and just have fun with it when they perform - dance, cheer, tumble - do their best! ~ Sharon Garcia, Spirit Squad Leader What made you want to be apart of CEE’s sprit squad? “I wanted to be with my friends and I love to dance!” ~ Angelica, grade 3, almost 9 yrs old What are some things that you have learned? “I have learned new dance routines and have made lots of new friends.” ~ Kloey, grade 2, age 7 What has been the hardest thing about being in the spirit squad so far this year? “Sometimes its hard to keep up with all the dance moves & cheers because some girls go faster than me.” ~ Camille, grade 2, age 7 Tell us about your leader, Ms. Garcia: “Ms. Garcia makes spirit squad fun and makes the dance routines easy to learn!” ~ Danielle, grade 4, almost 9 yrs old What do you aspire to be when you grow up? “I want to own a gym or studio that has classes for girls to learn dance, cheer, and tumbling!” ~ Leighanna, grade 3, age 8

at Brightmont Academy

P

arker, who entered the eighth grade this year, was looking for a different option. He was struggling with ADHD, and he would often return home from school frustrated by his peers and his inability to focus on learning within a larger classroom setting. His family knew it was time for a change, and they were looking for something different from the traditional model when they discovered the Brightmont Academy campus in Chandler. The private school specializes in one-to-one instruction which minimizes distractions, so Parker and his family decided to make the change to Brightmont Academy in late April of this year. He began taking four classes each day: science, social studies, English and math. Now his parents feel like he’s learning and achieving at the appropriate level and his successes have had a tremendous impact on his overall self-confidence and wellbeing. Parker’s grades jumped from D’s and F’s to A’s and B’s at Brightmont, and he looks forward to going to school every day. By taking more rigorous courses on a flexible schedule, he has more time to pursue his hobbies and athletic activities like gymnastics. He says he doesn’t ever want to leave Brightmont Academy, and he’d like to earn his high school diploma there. He is also able to get all of his homework done at school, which has made things easier for the whole family at home. “The Campus Director Marlene Kensrud really listened to what we needed, developed Parker’s schedule and assigned just the right teachers for him to succeed at Brightmont Academy,” said Connie, Parker’s mother.
