Katie Turkelson’s Yearbook class watched the Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on Jan. 20, 2021. Allowing students to become involved with this monumental event reflects the importance of American values and the idea that all citizens are permitted to have and express their personal opinion. “I feel that Bidens speech benefits Americans who want to see a change in this country, especially coming from him,” senior Isaac Abdelmessih said. “Personally speaking, I did not agree or stand with Joe Biden this past election season; however, I think his speech went smooth and he addressed the points he wanted to. I know that his supporters most likely valued his speech and saw it as a difference maker in this country that some saw as becoming hateful and derogatory towards others.”

Students in Bahija Chaaban’s Family Dynamics class are assigned to carry a robotic baby with the purpose of simulating what it would be like to actually have a child. Freshman Shelby Brunson holds her baby during Katie Turkelson’s journalism 1 class in room 8-225 on Monday, October 30. She explained that the baby comes with keys that the students put in the robotic baby’s back when it cries to simulate feeding, attention, burping, diaper changes, and panic for if the student “freaks out”. “On Friday I got like no sleep because it would cry every 10 minutes,” Brunson said. “It cried only during the night though because during the day it would be ok for like three hour spans.”
