    Food for thought: This is only a portion of the food that our school collected from November 1 to November 17. Jason Billingsley's Leadership students visited classes to collect food daily and worked hard to organize and tally up items. Mrs. Kerker’s four-person class took the cake with her operation “h...

      Here at LSHS, we have a large population of incredibly talented individuals whether that talent is musical, athletic or intellectual. Among those few is senior Cara Lewis, who has an affinity for singing and art. Since her coloring book days as a child, Lewis has loved drawing and animati...

    LSHS student left starstruck: Senior Cara Lewis receives honor of presenting her work to hometown celebrity, Chris Pratt. After winning local art contest, Lewis attended the opening ceremony of the Dan Pratt Memorial Center. “This guy pulled [my art] out for me to give it to [Chris Pratt] and he took it and he was like ‘you did that?! She did that?!’ and he held it up for everyone and he was like “she did that!’ and he was freaking out like a little kid, it was awesome,” Lewis says.

    Suicide. A terrifying word. The word holds such baggage on society and people living in it. Powerful, unapologetic and incredibly saddening. The distribution of pain from one person to another, creating a cycle ceasing to reach an end. An action that cries for help, and doesn’t receive aid. The peri...

    A person’s importance. A bracelet with the phrase “Jared Frick Forever” printed on the outside held in front of a wondrous sunset. The night of the Out of the Darkness walk, many gathered to witness the dusk ending the day. The wristband held in the photograph was a token of remembrance for the young man, Jared Frick, who ended his life earlier this year. “People who aren’t willing to be bold about it, can read. And then at least know what to do”, Penny Daniel said.

    Traveling abroad to study in an entirely new way of living. From a new town and school, to a new home and even a new family! The foreign exchange program certainly isn’t for the faint-hearted, but it presents a challenge and an adventure that would be a valuable experience for anyone. Junior Eleanor ...

    A change of scenery: Eleanor Frumkin Marqvardsen did not expect to go to Washington for school. The foreign exchange program chose the state for her, and she was expecting to go to a place such as Michigan, minnesota or wisconsin as most other U.S. bound students go. “I’m used to living in a city,” She said. “Lake Stevens is a smaller town and there’s not as many people, but I actually really like it.”

    Diversity, a word that we tend to ignore here at the high school. With the size of  our school is, the amount of diversity we possess is outstanding. A great way to recognize diversity is a new club here, The Minority Awareness Moment, a.k.a M.A.M, has been running since Mid-September and is run by sen...

    Brainstorming fun ideas for the club. Sophomore, Jordan Jackson is taking notes as to what the members of the club what to do this year. The Minority Awareness Movement club was in the process of wanting to go to a museum in Seattle that glorifies the strong independent and inspirational people of color. “Learning about other people in history who are doing what we are trying to do now, makes this so much more worth it,” senior Ana Newman said.
