Mayor’s Youth Employment Program

By: Alissa Miller and Rosario Aviles

Carlos Figueroa

The Mayor’s Youth Employment Program is a great opportunity for Juniors and Seniors to get hands on experience to prepare for their future in the workforce. In order to join this amazing program, students must have at least a 3.0 GPA to participate. They then undergo a rigorous selection process in which 60 students are chosen for training and then of those 60, 25 will be chosen to participate in the internships. Carlos Figueroa is one of the Junior participants, claims “It took dedication and persistence, [however] It is a great experience” he also mentioned he feels privileged to “know what it is like to be in a professional work environment” before going into the workforce. A Senior participant, Hanh Nguyen, said “The program will show [our community] that Garinger students can excel in the career of their choice, and this will give us an advantage and it is great experience.”

NHS Students go to Shamrock Gardens for Dr. Seuss Day

By Daniela Ramirez

Members of the National Honor Society celebrated Dr. Seuss day by planning a day of reading and activities for first graders at Shamrock Gardens Elementary.

The students read books like The Lorax and The Cat and the Hat and had the first graders do activities like making trees and mustache cutouts.  Members of NHS got to leave right after third block to walk over to the elementary school and split up to cover two first grade classes.

The first graders seemed very excited to be able to interact with high school students and participate in the activities planned for them.

 

 

 

Garinger student’s favorite class

Favourite Classes in High School

Image result for gym class

My favorite class so far during this second semester would be my PE Class at my 4th Block.

I really like that class because of so many reasons, they are the following:

  • My classmates are very friendly and they are easy to get along within a short period of time.
  • And I have my close friends over there.
  • That class is easy and you don’t have to do that much work, we just do a couple of power points and take some notes.
  • We never have homework or assignments.
  • The tests are super easy.
  • And the projects are easy and interesting as well.
  • On every Friday we have a free time and also we can go out to the soccer field and play soccer and walk around the soccer field.
  • And sometimes on our free time on the weekdays, we also watch some movies and can be on our phones.
  • And we have class parties and snacks days especially when all the class behaves good and when we all do well in our Tests.
  • The final reason that i like that class is that some of cute boys are in there and they like me.

 

Why i don’t think that all the other Classes are not much fun like the P.E Class?
I think that my other three classes are not as much fun as my P.E Class is because of so many reasons that i already included as above:

  • There are many works in the other classes, like class-works, assignments, projects and hard tests.
  • And the classes are long,boring and hard.
  • In other classes there are not lots of free time and going out that much.
  • There are no time to be on phones and snack times and party times, no fun time only working hard every time which makes some people complicated and tired.
  • And also because of peers and friends .
  • If we don’t work hard in other classes the grades can drop down to a D.

 

   Topics that we learn about in P.E Class

 

We learned about some of the healthy foods, behaviour and depression types.

 

For example:- Like to eat more healthy foods and homemade food rather than junk foods like chocolate, KFC,McDonald’s, chip and artificially made juice. It makes your body more productive and active throughout the day and makes you more healthy.

 

Examples of Healthy Foods and Homemade Foods

 

Examples of Unhealthy and Junk Foods

 

And the other topic is about Sanitary Conditions and Depression.

For example like

 

Major Depression which is a mental disorder which is characterized by at least two weeks of low mood that is present across most of the situations. It is often accompanied by low-self esteem and negative point of view of yourself, lost of interest in normally enjoyable daily activities, low energy, and feeling pains without a clear cause.

 

Situational Depression is a depression that can occur in the aftermath of various traumatic changes in your own life, which includes divorce with your husband or wife, retirement, get fired from job or loss of a job, death of a relative or close friend. Doctors sometimes refer to the conditions as an adjustment disorder.

 

And right now we are learning about Food Chart/Pyramids, and i think that it’s easy, interesting and important to know as knowledge about foods.

 

So this is the end of my description and explanation of My Favourite Class in High School so far. Thanks for enjoying My Story that is written by myself.

Garinger’s Foreign Exchange

Garinger High School has it’s very own Exchange Student who’s from Rome Italy.  His name is Francesco Riga  and he is currently a senior. Robert Davis and I interviewed him and he told us all about his home, his culture  and his friends all the way across the globe, we were quite shocked at the simliarties we shared ! Check out our interview with Garinger’s Newest wildcat down below

  • What is like in Italy?

” It’s very fun and the people there are very friendly. It’s a lot of structures and moments there and it is always filled with tourists.”

  • What do you do for fun in Italy?

” I play guitar and hang out with my friends. Sometimes we play soccer or we go and get coffee, whatever we do we always have fun doing it. ”

  • How is it different here from Italy ?

” I was quite surprised in how the people here act, I thought people here were going to be friendly and welcoming but that was far from it. The people here at the beginning may seem a bit detached, but when you really know it are very nice and sociable.”

  • Yeah i totally agree, Americans at beginning are not so friendly, but how is the food pizza to be exact?

” The food here  isn’t so good, the pasta here is horrible. At home we eat dinner around  8ish and I was surprised because here in AMerica you guys consider that late. But at home my grandmother cooks and I love when she cooks pasta, it’s very delicious. As far the pizza back home it’s very good.”

  • I love the pasta here, so i can only imagine what the pasta in Italy tastes like, but growing up in Italy what t.v. shows did you watch, did you watch Disney Channel?

“Yeah I watched Disney Channel, I loved Zack and Cody, Brandy and Mr. Whiskers, you know a lot of the old shows that they used to show, I don’t watch those shows now though since im older.”

  • That’s so cool that even though we lived across the globe from each other, we had an similar childhood. Before you go how is it at Garinger, have you made any friends?

“Yes, I met some very nice friendly people”

  • Aww that’s  good and it isn’t how us Wildcats pride on welcoming our new students.

With that being said wildcats let’s do better a job in welcoming our new students and future students.
