Chromebooks change approach to learning Kelsey Ward Reporter
In 2014, FCPS established a program to give every student their own device to use in the classroom. This 1:1 program distributed Chromebooks to all Class of 2020 members this year. The Chromebooks are used in the classroom and can be taken home for them to use. “Chromebooks have been a good fit because of the price point. It’s ease of operation, the long battery it possesses, and they power up easily and can be managed by FCPS,” said Ms. Marsha Thompson, Media Specialist in charge of Chromebook distribution. “I use my Chromebook regularly in two of my classes and for homework about three times a week,” said Rachel Hall, Class of 2020 member The idea is that every year for the next four years the incoming freshman class will get Chromebooks to use for the year. It will take four years to get enough Chromebooks for every student be 1:1. The incoming freshmen will get the Chromebooks that the seniors from the previous year used. Chromebooks use the Google platform. The teachers and students have access to a variety of Google Apps for Education, such as Google Classroom and Google Drive. “I have changed my approach, and we are both (teachers and students) learning more and more about how to effectively use to Chromebooks. We have a teacher group that meets each week to work on lessons.” said Mrs. Natalie Rebetsky, ninth grade English teacher. Many of the teachers are using the Chromebooks to their advantage. Since the school is trying to conserve paper, most assignments are now online instead of printed. “Everything is now electronic, so it is a disadvantage for the upperclassmen because we have to use the slow computers,” said Lexi Watson, Class of 2017. “I think that they are good for educational use. An important part of learning is relating what is in class to current events, and Chromebooks give students access to current events,” said Sarah Hall, Class of 2018.

In memory and tribute to former teacher, Mr. Christopher Wolfe, Mrs. Kate Lane dedicated her Little Lancers lemonade stand to him. Wolfe taught Woodworking, Foundations of Technology, and Engineering. He was a huge part of the Lancer community both in academics and athletics. He passed away suddenly from cancer soon before the 2016-2017 school year. His impact extended to coaching. He coached basketball and golf for several years during his 15-year career as a teacher in Frederick County Public schools. The lemonade stand was built by a former woodworking student, senior Justin Kleinmann. Justin took woodworking with Wolfe for Wood Shop 1, 2, and 3. Lane asked Kleinmann to do this project because she heard good things about his skills. The lemonade stand that Kleinmann built will be used to be used in Lane’s Child Development class for imaginative play by Little Lancers. It took Kleinmann over a week to make this stand. He built the
stand in his garage the last week of the 2016 school year. In Woodworking 2 with Mr.Wolfe, Kleinmann made a bed frame. He said, “ The owner of Maryland Custom Cabinets saw it and asked me to work for him and his cabinet company.”
One day Justin also plans to open his own cabinet company. Little Lancers will be starting school on October 3rd, and this lemonade stand will be put to use full time when they arrive.

Miller also said that she feels that this class builds on what students would have learned in their previous years of science. It reviews what they know and moves forward from there. “I want all our science classes to be challenging, rigorous, and for students to have to ponder and investigate science,” said Ms. Colleen Beall, Science Coordinator for Secondary Schools at FCPS. PES was piloted at Oakdale and Thomas Johnson High Schools, where they held a survey on how the class was received. “What students really liked about it was the real-life aspect. What they didn’t like? Notes,” Beall said. The class has been given a good review from the teachers. McCauley loves PES. “It’s a lot to prepare because I’ve never taught it before, but I really love it because the students do and they’re really good at it.” Science reform started from college and worked its way down the school system. Universities fought for PES because they needed students to be able to do inquiry. Now that PES has begun, there is a spiraling curriculum rather than cut up in different blocks of knowledge. PES also opens up the opportunity for students to take various other science elective courses as upperclassmen. For example, PES will open up the doors to "Climate, Ocean, Weather Science," which is almost like an AP PES. This class is being piloted at Thomas Johnson and Brunswick High School.

Surviving Cancer: “Thank you” is not enough Lily Weaver Reporter
ing part of my story. My surgery was eight hours long. After surgery, my arm was stuck at a 90° angle and was swollen. I needed to have a second surgery the next day as my arm was swollen beyond belief. Dr. Albolafia and team were worried for a bit that we were going to lose my arm. Thankfully the only side effect was my arm blistering horribly. Throughout the year, my family and I met some amazing people who then became a part of my story and my family. Thank you, Grace, for being the best older sister anyone could ask for. Grace, my older sister, was worried like a second mother. This changed her and pushed her to become the leader she is today. While I was in the hospital, she was stressed out and had to help take care of my younger brother, Frankie, while still getting straight A’s. She would Facetime me, try to lighten the mood, spend as much time with me when I was home, and, honestly, just be my truest friend. Thank you, Frankie, for making me laugh and keeping faith I would get better. Frankie was just entering Kindergarten when I got diagnosed. We were so excited to go to school together. I was going to be the big sister making sure he was okay in school. We lost that moment in time, but Frankie loved to make me laugh and spend time watching movies in the playroom. Thank you, Mom and Dad, for always being there and believing in me that we would get through this. Thank you to everyone who was there for my family and me through this rough time and for spending time with us in the hospital. There were many unseen angels, aunts, cousins, and grandparents that were always there for me and my family. They would all come visit me in the hospital and play some games. Now I am a part of The Truth 365, a much larger community of cancer fighters, survivors, and advocates. This keeps me moving forward away from cancer and illness but toward hope and cure.
The summer of 2016 was 62 days long. That may be short for most, but it was blissfully long for me. This is because I was worry free, happy and healthy. Four years ago that summer was a different story. I had been in the hospital for 42 days straight during the spring. That summer, I was recovering and going on a Disney vacation to celebrate finishing my treatment; although, it was no ordinary vacation. I was now a survivor, a statistical miracle. All over America, statistically, there are 43 more kids diagnosed with cancer and seven children die–every single day.. When I was diagnosed, I was beginning fifth grade. When children are going into fifth grade, they are mostly worried about recess, friends, and being the top dogs of elementary school, but for me, it was otherwise. I was worried about living or dying. Many people don’t want to wake up in the morning and get ready for school. I would have rather done that than have to wake up in a hospital bed with tubes attached to me. Despite the comfort and love of all of my family and friends who surrounded me through my worst times, sleeping in a hospital bed was scary for this 10-year-old. Looking back from a relatively healthy place, I realize that all of the “thank you’s” I said then, need to be said again. I appreciate each day this extended family has given me. Thank you to Dr. Laura Copaken for finding my cancer and saving my life. I love that I can call you “Aunt Laura” now. Knowing I would be at the hospital once a week every three weeks was terrifying, but that wasn’t the worst part. The worst part was finding out I would never be “normal” again, finding out I would lose all my hair, be unable go to school, and, most of all, never raise my left arm again. Thank you, Dr. Albolafia, for saving my arm, getting the cancer out of my body, and for being a lifesavRead more at http://lhslance.org/y1juu
Beau Cameron Editor When referring to a male, you use he/him pronouns. You refer to females by she/her pronouns. So what do you call someone with no gender? Depending on who you ask, the answer varies. The English language has no gender-neutral singular pronoun to refer to individuals who identify as non-binary (not exclusively masculine or feminine.) People have invented new pronouns such as ‘ze/zir,’ but their use has only spread to select communities. Some colleges, such as the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, have adopted informal policies to promote gender inclusiveness. Champlain College asked this year’s incoming freshman class to wear buttons to establish their preferred gender pronouns: She, He, or They. For the use of the singular ‘they’ to spread to all generations, the rules of language and people’s habits would have to change. Inclusiveness and acceptance should be taught to children from a young age so that they know how to properly address non-binary individuals and can understand the people around them. Not all people are strictly one gender. Therefore, they shouldn’t be restricted to a pronoun that ties them to a single gender. When someone who you’ve known for a long time transitions between genders, it makes sense that you would have trouble using their correct pronoun. You’ve known them as ‘he’ or ‘she’ for years; it’s not easy to change that mindset. In that sense, it’s okay to mess up.

It’s also okay to correct people when they use the incorrect pronouns when referring to you or someone else. However, it is not okay to blatantly use the wrong pronouns. That’s all it’s really about–respect. Respect for people’s gender identities, respect for people’s pronouns, respect for people. That’s all it takes to end the pronoun argument. Cameron advises other parents of non-binary children to “Have patience. Approach things with an open mind and don’t overreact.” Using correct pronouns seems arbitrary, something that can easily be ignored. But to someone who has been called by the incorrect pronouns their entire life, pronouns are important. “There is a connotation with the feminine/masculine pronouns that my child is bothered by,” said Cameron. “Since using the pronouns that they prefer is meaningful to them, it’s meaningful to me.” Next time you aren’t sure of someone’s gender, don’t assume anything. Ask them. A small courtesy like that can go a long way. Read more at http://lhslance.org/2rcuo
H & M: a perfect fit for Francis Scott Key Mall Cassie Harris Reporter August 18th was a huge day for the Francis Scott Key Mall. The mall buzzed with excitement as it welcomed the newest edition to the shopping mall: H&M. H&M, short for Hennes & Mauritz, is a Swedish clothing company that has expanded into 64 countries since its initial opening in Finland in 1964. The new store replaced GAP, Regis Hair Salon, Crazy 8, and Express. H&M, occupying approximately 20,000 square feet, is now the largest store in FSK Mall. Similar to other stores in the mall, H&M rotates the display, to welcome in the new trends for the season. H&M is an affordable destination for desirable clothes, bringing competition to other fast-fashion stores in the FSK mall, such as Charlotte Russe and Rue21. “I can find mega deals and really stylish clothing,” said Class of 2017 student, Roan Tinney. H&M has something different

that not many retail spaces have. “The co-workers are like a little family,” said store manager Heather Frankel.“In order to be a great place to shop, it needs to be a great place to work,” said Frankel. The team-oriented atmosphere builds tight bonds among co-workers. “The workers were helpful. I found everything I wanted,” said Tinney. The company motto is “Fashion quality at the best possible price with sustainability.” The store has a very streamlined and fluid way of operating that meets the demands of the public more successfully. The new store has some big shoes and a big space to fill.

Elizabeth Anderson Reporter As every TV addict knows, fall always kicks off the new line up for the newest and coolest shows of the year. Every year, big entertainment conglomerates search deep into their pockets, fishing out millions of dollars to create the next big “fall smash hit”, and try to outdo each other for the attention of 300 million viewers. This August, the country saw the start of brand new listings that will be sure to capture the interests of many. Among these “new hits” is the most talked about new series, 90210. It’s been over nine years since J.K. Rowling’s (@jk_rowling) supposed finale to the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and more than five since the last movie came out, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two. Since then, avid fans have had to resort to rereading the series, over and over and over again (not that Harry Potter could ever get old, of course). When the news broke that screenwriters Jack Thorne (@jackthorne) and John Tiffany were partnering with Rowling to create a new book, a screenplay, the Harry Potter community went wild. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was suddenly all anyone could talk about, and it was hard to stay patient as July 31st approached, when the book would be released to the public. Appropriately, this was also the date of Harry Potter’s 36th birthday. With more than two million copies sold in the first two days after publication, Harry Pot-
ter fans definitely aren’t empty-handed, but like others, I would have a more satisfied reader if they had published the play in novel form. As a devotee myself, I can agree that perhaps it didn’t quite live up to the expectations set by my love for the original series, but how can I expect it to be the same when it wasn’t even written by Rowling? Harry Potter and the Cursed Child follows the schooling of the next Harry Potter generation, mostly focusing on middle child Albus Potter (son of Harry and Ginny) as he struggles to find his place in the family and at Hogwarts. With the aid of Scorpius Malfoy, a mysterious girl named Delphi, and a TimeTurner, Albus, sets out on an adventure to right a wrong, altering his, and many others’ fates. All in all, it was a predictable novel, but the content is definitely suitable for an entertaining play. If I could travel to London, I’d absolutely want to make a stop to see the theatrical production, first performed at the Palace Theatre in London, Great Britain, which opened the same day the book was released. Critics are giving the play a thumbs-up, with some reviews reflecting a four and five-star rating, such as that of British newspapers, The Telegraph and The Guardian. Ben Brantley of the New York Times said, “[The play creates] a kind of magic that is purely theatrical." Read more at: http://lhslance.org/72u5d
TV Show Review: Stranger Things Amanda Anderson Co-Editor-in-Chief Released on July 25, 2016, Stranger Things is a Netflix original TV series. The eight-episode mystery takes place in 1983. Three middle school misfits try to find their lost friend, Will, but instead find a girl with super powers, a government conspiracy, another dimension, and a grand adventure. The show was a surprise success, and Season 2 is in production. If you haven't seen the show, watch the full season now so you are ready for Season 2. Here's what you will love: 1. The Genre It’s not just a mystery. It has sci/fi, horror, and even some humor. The 80’s references are a great part of the show and are a really funny touch. To really sell the story of the show, the Duffer brothers created a mashup of about 30 different 80's movies to tell the story of Stranger Things. With music from John Williams, the man who composed the Star Wars music, tied the whole mashup together. The whole show is flickering lights, eerie music, and Star Wars quotes. 2. The Setting The show really looks like it is set in the 80's. From the clothes and haircuts, to Barb's Trapper-Keeper, and even the Walkie Talkies. 3. The Friendship Stranger Things opens with four boys playing Dungeons and Dragons. On the way home from playing, Will disappears on his bike. The boys spend the rest of the series searching for their lost friend. The main plot of the show, is three friends looking for their missing friend, Will. While doing so, they stumble across a girl named Eleven. She's a 12 year old girl with telepathic powers and also a runaway government secret. In flashbacks, we see how she was treated like both a test subject and prisoner. While the boys and Eleven are looking for Will, the government is also looking for her. A poll on the Linganore Journalism Twitter, proved Eleven as the favorite character on Stranger Things. 4. Nancy, Johnathan, and Steve A good show isn't complete without a love triangle, and Stranger Things delivers. Nancy starts off liking the
stereotypical bad-boy, Steve Harrington. Although when Nancy started to help Jonathan find his brother, Will. many fans, expected for them to end up together in the end. Steve has never liked Jonathan, so of course this causes problems once Nancy starts hanging out with him. 5. Season 2 The show ended with a slight cliff hanger but definitely a lot of questions. Season 2 is confirmed with the same type of cryptic theme sequence but with all the names of the upcoming 9 episodes. The episode's names are; “Madmax,” “The Boy Who Came Back To Life,” “The Pumpkin Patch,” “The Palace,” “The Storm,”“The Pollywog,” “The Secret Cabin,” “The Brain,” and “The Lost Brother.” Many have already speculated about what the titles may mean. Hopefully, the second season will answer our questions while still adding more. Three new characters are also being added with the names Max, Billy, and Roman. 6. The Monster The boys are calling the monster a Demogorgon, a creature with two heads. One deceptive, which is like Eleven's nature, and one destructive, like the Monster. Stranger Things is even better than all the hype says and a great series to binge-watch. Read more at: http://lhslance.org/72u5d
Tribal Tradition: Rasmussen and friends lead Lancers as “One Tribe” Emma Wynkoop Reporter
photo courtesy of Pete Austin The tribe at the first game of the season at Tuscarora High School.
Most Linganore students are acquainted with the familiar Friday night scene in the football stadium: the bright lights, the screaming crowd, and the excitement of watching the football team fight their way to victory. One other element of these nights is the Tribe, the group of senior boys who paint to support the football team every Friday night. Each member of the tribe paints up to encourage a different senior player. The chief of the tribe is Harry Rasmussen. “I’m responsible for leading the chants, coordinating with the Lady Tribe (a group of girls who paint the tribe up and create the banners every week), and organizing the tailgate before each game,” said Rasmussen, who was voted chief by a poll directed at the student body. Senior football player Michael Rajnik said, “It’s nice to know we have them there at every game, and that, win or lose, they’ll support you.
They keep all of us hyped up throughout the whole game and add to the energy and excitement.” Maryellen Austin, mother of tribe member Kyle Austin, said, “I think the tribe is an integral part of creating a supportive environment. This group is particularly positive. Most of these boys are athletes themselves, so they appreciate the players’ efforts. I hope the tribe continues to be outrageous in a way that brings the student body together for fun and memorable times on Friday nights. I love the energy and camaraderie.” Along with the cheerleaders, the tribe keeps the student section as energetic as possible during games by leading them in screaming chants and familiar traditions such as the infamous “first down” chant. The tribe is also responsible for coming up with the themes and chants for every game. While they rely largely on maintaining traditions from previous years for these aspects, Rasmussen plans small changes. This year, for instance, the tribe reports that they will not be leading the infamous “I Believe” rally every Friday during the school day, saving it only for their biggest, most important games. “The tribe represents the passion and spirit of the entire Linganore student body,” said Class of 2017 member Liz Hovis. The tribe uses group chants at games and coordinating themes for the student body in order to incorporate the entire student section and maintain the theme that all of Linganore is “One Tribe.”
Brandon Cooper Reporter The football season did not begin with a win, as the varsity team had hoped. Their opener was a tough loss against the Tuscarora Titans, 18-7. After week two the team is getting back on track to a winning season. With the pressure of keeping up the tradition of an undefeated regular season, the team is headed into challenges with Walkersville, Oakdale and Westminster.

coaches and what they do for the team. “I am proud to have coaches that help me succeed on the field and on the mats,” said Kidwell. Amy Rumburg, JV’s new cheerleading coach, coached LOUYAA cheer for four years and their competitive team for one season. She then stopped coaching when her daughter decided to do All Star Cheer which made for a stressful schedule. Rumburg was then asked if she was interested in coaching the JV cheer team and gladly accepted.
With redemption in their eyes, the Lancers are coming back this season with the bitter taste of the tough loss against Seneca Valley in the playoffs of last year. Although the team started the season out with a humbling loss, they came together and defeated Indian River in week two, Middletown in week three and South Hagerstown in week four. The score against Indian River was 61-0 with touchdowns by Alec Mathews, Mike Rajnik and Nick Bennett. The score of the Middletown game was a close 13-12 with touchdowns by Mike Rajnik and Davon Butler. The most recent win aganist the South Hagerstown Rebels ended with a score of 20-0. Senior Will Pellicier, strong safety, said, “We plan to work hard every week to prepare for the game ahead.” Head coach Rick Conner has been leading Linganore football since he moved from Urbana in 2002. As a long-time coach, Conner has coached players such as Zach Zwinak, former Penn State running back, and Robby Havenstein, current St. Louis Rams offensive lineman. Senior offensive lineman, Thad Engel said, “With hard work and focus, I believe our team could do well this season and make playoffs.”

JV cheer energizes crowds at games
Grace Gaydosh Reporter “Are you psyched to be a Lancer?” Fourteen cheerleaders are leading the cheers on the sidelines for JV football. Sophomore captains Reilly Kidwell, Jodi Riggleman, and Makayla Hill, are determined to support the cheerleaders and lead the cheer team to victory in future competitions. “I think really connecting with all the new girls and the team is a key factor. Not only am I a captain to help make them better cheerleaders, but to also help them be their own cheerleader,” said Kidwell.

I can definitely work on stretching daily,” said Class of 2020 cheerleader, Charlotte Koogle, one of the three flyers on the team. “I love seeing our team improve and get stronger each practice,” said Class of 2020 cheerleader, Amber Vance.
