Sexual assault on the rise

  With the numerous high profile cases surrounding sexual assault, the topic is becoming more widely spoken of than ever before. What we aren't talking about, though, is the continued existence of sexual assault within our own community and how that affects our family and friends. Sexual assault in general is statistically shown to be concentra...

    Members of the Lake Stevens FCCLA chapter traveled to Kennewick on March 7 to represent our school at the state level competition. Everyone who participated medaled, and six students earned the gold medal ranking necessary to advance onto nationals this summer in Atlanta, Georgia. Juniors Gabriella ...

    Going for the Gold: From left to right: FCCLA gold medalists, junior Taylor Garcia, senior Emma Hoggatt, sophomores Courtnay Yelm and Harley Kayser, juniors Maleah Plank and Kylea Shepard, pose for a celebratory photo at the state conference in Kennewick, Washington. This group advanced to nationals this summer in Georgia. “[Competing] is really cool. It’s a good experience to have and you gain a lot of leadership experience, a lot of skills that you use when you are an adult. You learn how to communicate a lot,” Plank said.

    Seven out of the top ten most spoken languages in the world employ gendered nouns. If you’ve ever taken a foreign language class here at LSHS, you’re already familiar with the concept as all three languages offered for study here at LSHS, French, German and Spanish, are “gendered” languages. T...

    Social and Welcoming. Sra. Arcos and class Tiffany McAllister converse back and forth to help during an in-class activity. Throughout the class, students walked around and spoke with each other by asking questions and then filling out a chart they were assigned. “Today we were learning how to have full-on conversations in Spanish, rather than just asking “how are you” and being done with it.” sophomore Dan Nguyen said.

    Sometimes from a high school student’s perspective, everything seems very localized. We hear about what goes on in Lake Stevens and occasionally get a snippet of information about something halfway across the country. However, once a year Lake Stevens has the opportunity to bring a different part of t...

    Welcome to class: Three Australian exchange students are brought to the attention of Mr. Flanders' second period class. Madilyn Ridgeway, Reece Ryan and Konnor Furber were given the assignment of telling the American students about their 'lifestyle'. In the back of the classroom, hosts Mitchell Hoffman and Sydney Peterson are chuckling watching their newfound friends struggle under the pressure. "I have students who still are good friends and keep in contact with their Aussie, even three to four years ago,” Choir teacher Heidi Forslund said. “Some have even gone to Australia to visit and stay with their Aussie."

    Music is an age-old art form. A universal language. Walk around the city, a school, even the grocery store, and one may spot someone wearing headphones. These people submerge themselves in the melodic and harmonic universe created through music compositions. Ranging from country rock hits, to the newes...

    The perfect headspace: The Seattle based museum, MoPop, has a large screen televising the music videos to music’s greatest anthems. The mixing board is placed in front of the screen to control the musical composition of what can be heard in the miniature theatre. Many young artists and musicians come to the MoPop (formally known as the EMP) to gain inspiration. “Any person that you may meet could become the next musical genius,” sophomore Dallas Landeros said. “If you are not doing what you love, you are wasting your time,” world renowned musician Billy Joel said.
