Hey Ladies....these lads need dates to Sadie Hawkins!

The Sadie Hawkins Dance is in 22 Days! By: Alex Bayless, Emily Ramsey, and Caroline Engel. Sadie Hawkins is coming up girls, and you have less than a month to get ready. Everyone should come; it will be a lot of fun. Don’t wait too long to ask, as there are only so many boys in this school. So it’s time to find and ask that special man in your life ladies; get creative and ask away. Tips about Sadie Hawkins: - Remember it is kinda fancy but not all the way fancy. - Red and black are cute colors for February (don’t feel like you have to wear these colors). There is a prize for coordinating with your date however! - Guys, you don’t have to wear a tux or a suit! For example, you could wear khakis pants and a blazer.- If you can’t come up with a creative idea to ask someone special ask Mrs. King: she is the master of creative ideas.

- Try asking that special someone by incorporating something they like or do. - Don’t ask someone to Sadie Hawkins through snapchat or text messages. - Involve food in your asking: remember you are asking a guy! - Don’t be awkward when you are asking someone and if you do something special don’t be scared, smile and talk to them. - Don’t steal someone else’s man if you know they are asking someone, respect the dibs. - Don’t ignore your date at the dance, you did ask them. - Last of all have fun and don’t start drama. - Ladies, don’t forget your wallet, dinner is on you tonight.

Boys Dance 2014

PEP RALLYJunior & Senior Boys roll to a victory in the Boys Dance Off Competition. By Caroline Engel. The upperclassmen rolled away to victory during the boys dance team dance off! The juniors and seniors definitely were making the crowd laugh with their jeans shorts and wife beaters

Copeland, nobody who saw this dance will ever think of “wrecking ball” the same way again! Although the underclassmen’s dance was not as funny (according to the crowd), the underclassmen dance was

when they came out. The laughter increased as the boys pretended to be ballerinas (I mean did you see Zack Schmaltz’s first position?! That was perfection)! The “dance” moves

definitely the dance that could take away the technical award! The sassiness of the boys was definitely shown off in the first section of the dance by Levi Aldag, Jalen Skar, Peter Larsen and Cooper

that the upperclassmen used went great with their song choices! When it came time to vote for the best boys dance team, the upperclassmen definitely took that

Root! Although the underclassmen might not have won the dance off, they definitely had the crowd laughing to tears too! Thanks to all the boys that showed off their skills during the dance

win… for this year!!! Thanks to Mitch

FLAPPY BIRD Watch out vine, Candy Crush, tiny wings, there’s a new addicting app in town; Flappy Bird. If you have not downloaded this app, then I applaud you and your willpower. I downloaded this app because anonymous sources repeatedly asked/ forced me to play once, and I could not help myself from enjoying that timid tapping of the smartphone. I have a combined total of eleven, I repeat ELEVEN points in this game. To be quite honest, I don’t understand how within a weekend an app can all of a sudden become one of the most popular and recommended apps in the App Store. It literally took two days for it to spring up at Collegiate! I have realized, after being confused for a couple of days, that the reason why people

The Selfie Olympics: By Lilian Clark. Selfies have been all over social media for quite some time now, but they are recently getting extreme with the new trend, the Selfie Olympics. Teens all over the world are hanging upside down over their doors and dragging ridiculous objects into their bathrooms to be a part of it. Although entertaining, these selfies can be dangerous too. There have several stories of teens falling off bathroom doors while hanging upside down, and injuring their necks or heads. One report claims that an 18year old was found dead by his mother while attempting to take a selfie hanging on the door. Although this report cannot be proved as true, it could be possible. Here are some of the best #SelfieOlympics competitors…

So watch out teachers: if a student is looking down at their lap during class, you now know what game they’re playing. Flappy Bird has skyrocketed in downloads within the past couple of days, and has probably been one of the most frustrating games ever invented. If you hear “honestly right now” or “I am so done with this,” in the hallways the next couple of weeks, it’s probably because they are playing this game. “When I get passed four, I’ll start doing my homework.” – Caroline Engel (High

Bullinger’s 3D printing By Jake Barrett

As many of you already know, Mr. Bullinger has a 3D Printer in his back room. This 3D printer can print any STL file that is imputed into it. An STL file, or Standard Tessellation Language File, is basically a digital model for whatever the file is about. There are hundreds of STL files on the internet, from things from video games, movies, art, or even Barak Obama’s head! Some of the most popular things that Mr. Bullinger has printed are golf balls, a really cool artistic skull, an airplane, necklaces, sunglasses, key chains, and several other very cool or useful things.

If you want Mr. Bullinger to print something, ask him in person and then send him the STL file of what you would like to print. Some good resources for STL files include:,, and Links to these are below (yes I realize you will have to type them out, but it’s ten characters). Turbosquid:

The process of printing has become a bit slower 3dvia: because the printer has to be cleaned after every Grabcad:
