New Rules By: Victoria McCoy

This year we have new rules that many students/teachers don’t agree with. Some people would think, “Why write an article about school rules?”, but it’s about getting to know how others feel about the way the rules are changing in the school. So just to see how others feel; I decided to ask some fellow students about the new rules and how they feel about the changes. I’ve decided not to use the students names to hide their identity. This was mainly to see how people feel about the decisions that are being made every school year.

Rule 1: No electronic devices when you enter the building. If seen, they will be confiscated. Leave them in your locker! Response: “It was obviously coming but we shouldn't have to put them up until 7:40 a.m. and we should be able to take them out at 2:30 p.m.” Anonymous Rule 2: No flip-flops, crocs, or shoes with open-toe. Response: “That is a dumb rule. I don't care if it’s for safety; if we hurt ourselves then its our fault.” Anonymous Rule 3: Food, gum, or drinks (besides water) are not permitted outside of the cafeteria, before and/or after school. Response: “I understand that people make messes and don't clean up after themselves and we don't have personal maids, just the janitor and she might not want to either. Anonymous

Setting Things Into Place As we continue into this volleyball season we see the team‟s improvement not only as a team but each individually with communication and sportsmanship. These girls are exceeding expectations of many fans. Each time the girls and ladies play a game, they astound the fans. Even I was shocked after witnessing each match. Our Lady Rams

Junior High Volleyball In the previous Jr. High volleyball game the girls did an excellent job. They played Prairie Heights and both A team and B team fought hard. Starting off the game A team scored 16-25 resulting in a loss, but they pulled their act together and raised the score tremendously. Unfortunately for us Prairie Heights had won the game be-

really put forth a great deal of effort. So if you‟ve got the time come out and see a volleyball game and cheer them to victory!

Go Rams! cause of a power outage. A score of twenty-seven to twenty-nine. The girls showed good sportsmanship, however, and the B team was on their way. The B team, in their first set, fought for a score of twenty to twenty five, and in the second set twenty-one to twenty-five. The loss wasn‟t a complete loss, as you watch the girls go from game to game you can see that they are improving with each game. Keep it up girls!

High School Volleyball As we continue through the season we have much to look forward too. We congratulate our ladies for doing a good job this year. Our girls are one in two. Two losses were against Cair Paravel, in which they did a good job and gave them a run for their money. The second loss was against Beloit

and Southern Cloud. They had won vs. Flint Hills Christian. They did excellent if I might say so myself. They won within an hour, and they played a game of best three out of five sets. Needless to say they won three in a row. Way to go LADIES!!!! Way to make us proud!
