Mr. Carson High

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Mr. Carson High! On March seventh, the Community Center was packed, and the senior guys were in charge! 27 super-heroes performed for the looking and waiting eyes of the audience and the judges, only their secret disguises had names that weren’t also known in movies, shows, or are celebrities. Jared Akers, Chase Blueberg, Josh Breen, Sam Bruketta, Tony Cacioppo, Tylar Chester, Andy Cooper, Nestor Cortez, Kyle Denning, Ryan Doherty, Nick Donaldson, Dustin Dutch, Robby Easton, Theron Garzoli, Christion Hendee, Porfirio Jauregui, Austin Kiesow, Nicholas Lani, Tommy Mahoney, Adam Peterson, Garrett Schafer, Austin Shaffer, Kyle Sharp, Adam Shoaf, Stafan Sobkiewicz, Noah Teixeira, and Gehrig Tucker were all their own concealed hero!
The ‘men’ had to perform their best in front the sold out showing they auditioned for. They all performed with the perfect amount of courage, love, dorkability, and cockiness to impress everyone watching. They not only had to dance and perform any and… every, talent they had, they had to answer the ever so complicated questions from our very own, Ron James and Jennifer (Tartan) Walls. Thankfully though they could work as a team for their performances and they were even escorted the whole night by the very spirited cheerleaders!
Of course, the cheerleaders weren’t the only lucky ones for the night who got to be with guys, three of the contestants made a few girls’ nights by asking them to one of the most memorable experiences of their senior careers. First, Nick Donaldson started off the date asking line by asking Veronica Gonzalez. Next, Chase Blueberg stunned Delaney, senior and head cheerleader, by asking her in for her talent. Lastly, Åustin Shaffer ended the asking experience by asking his longtime girlfriend Kati.
Over all, music, friends, family, and surprises filled the room; love is what you need, acting’s what you want, and super-heroes are what you crave!

Glen Adair Will Be Missed

Glen Adair, a former Carson High principal passed away recently.

Some of the current teachers at CHS were either hired by Adair or worked with him while he was here. Kim Arnold, proud senator staff member, said, “I thought he was a great principal and he loved CHS.” Any principal that loves their school is bound to be a great one. “He participated in a lot,” Arnold said. In our school, any teacher, dean, or, [principal], that is a good participant in a students’ life is doing their job completely right.

Trish Stephenson, another staff memmber in the office, said, “I remember that he was well loved here at CHS.” Not only were the students appreciative of Adair, Stevenson then said, “Staff and kids alike thought he was the best principal ever.” Glen Adair held his position right. Stevenson said, “His decision making process was always fair, and he treated everyone fairly.” That’s all you can ask for as a principal.

The staff acknowledged his value and will continue to appreciate all the effort he put towards the school, to make it the unique and resilient Carson High School we know of today.

Carson Clubs

For Carson High, clubs are a huge importance to both kids and staff.

“It’s a lot of pressure, because all you have is yourself, what you’ve prepared, and also, the whole room is watching you!” This year, even more students have decided to take part in the community by joining these clubs. Shaylin Segura, freshman, a part of FBLA and Speech & Debate, described what she goes on in Speech and Debate.
“We have monthly competitions on Fridays and Saturdays all day long, and go back and forth debating on different types of topics.” The Speech and Debate club chooses a topic to dispute until the judge create a verdict on who won the argument. Last month, the club discussed “government issues.” Segura said, “We are actually proving them wrong and killing their case, and the rest of the competition is waiting for the results.” The club has one judge critiquing them for the first round, and two to three judges for the following rounds, based upon the more skilled debaters.

Spring McKnight, freshman, takes part in Key Club for Carson High.
“We get to go on a lot of fun trips, and we do a lot of service for the community.” The club meets on Tuesdays at lunch, and participates in the district convention, or D-CON. McKnight said, “At D-CON we get together and do rallies for who has more spirit!” Look for the Key Club article for additional information on this club.

If you want to help the community, try something new, feel like you’re a part of something important, or all of the above, make it a priority to join a club at Carson High!

Sportastic Year

Sports are a big part of many students lives here at CHS. Whether they play sports to stay in shape or just for enjoyment, almost every athlete is very passionate about their sport. As the winter sports season comes to an end many students are spending much of their time preparing for upcoming spring sports including baseball, golf, softball, swimming, and track.
Rachel Rombardo, freshman, is on the freshman basketball team. “It’s a good way to get my mind off of things,” Rombardo said.
Alex Estrada, sophomore, is on the football and wrestling team and also does track. He said, “It’s a good way to stay in shape.”
Bailee Barber, sophomore, is on the ski team at Carson High. She has been skiing for thirteen years. “It’s a way to express myself, an escape from reality,” said Barber.

New Year, New You

The New Year is a time for new beginnings. It is a fresh start, and chance for people to make a change in their lives. Many students at CHS celebrated the new in unique ways.
Sabrina Tonino, senior, spent New Year’s Eve with friends. “We went to dinner, and then went to a friend’s house to watch the ball drop.”
Other students, like Bernardo Lopez, freshman, shared it with their families. Lopez said, “We waited until midnight, and then would give each other hugs.”
Some students had New Year’s Resolutions. Others were just excited to move forward into the New Year. Let’s try to make 2014 the best year yet!
