Warriors Plan For Spring Break (Hope For No Homework!)


By Alina Cuen and Daniela Moreno

With spring break around the corner, students and staff members are seeing a light at the end of this third quarter tunnel. In a week, it will be time, at last, to be able to put our feet up and relax.

Here’s what some of our fellow Warriors have to say about spring break…

Nobody needs a respite more than our seniors; many of our Class of ’18 students have already had a full-blown case of senioritis, and some are still struggling with this “infliction”.

Mauro Sanchez, a senior, said, “Over the break, I want to go swimming and get rid of this farmer’s tan!” He added, “And for teachers who want to give us homework… NO!!! There’s absolutely no reason for teachers to give us homework over the break!”

Freshman Jorge Olmos said, “I’m excited for spring break because we don’t have to worry about school, and, no, we students shouldn’t have homework because we all really need a break.”

He added, “The perfect spring break would be 365 days.”

Aaron Cano, a sophomore, said, “I’m really excited for spring break because I can finally sleep in and get the rest that I need! No teachers should give students homework! We all need a break—especially the teachers! I know that I desperately need a break from school. I’d love to be able to spend the break with my girlfriend.”

Abigail Sotelo, a senior who is really excited for the break, said, “I can’t wait for spring break! I’m going to go out, swim and party!” She added, “And teachers shouldn’t give out homework, it’s our break, and it’s their break, too! They need time to recharge their batteries before the fourth quarter begins on March 26th!”

“The perfect spring break would be to go to Rocky Point,” Sotelo affirmed.

Principal Dr. Romero said, “Over the break, I’m going to watch my son play baseball and my daughter play soccer. I’ll also be working two days that week. For me, the perfect spring park is spending a lot of time with family, eating rib-eye steaks, pico de gallo and tripas de leche.”

“No, I don’t believe that teachers should give out homework over the break,” Romero said. “I think it’s an opportunity for everyone to recharge themselves. It’s a time to catch up on family, interests, and a time to rest and to de-stress.”

So, teachers, you hear that? – Straight from the Boss! J Happy Spring Break, Pueblo High School!

Happy Spring Break, And Welcome Crazy School Year Weather

by Analicia Bake

By the time Halloween comes around, every Tucsonan knows and is relieved that the days of 100 degrees are finally over, and 2017 year was an especially brutal year in most of the Southwestern United States. Even October was freakishly warm; in fact, 25 days in October experienced highs above 90 degrees, making it the hottest October in the history of recorded temperatures in Tucson—and that is more than 130 years of keeping track of the weather in our city.

“The cold weather is great, although we were really warm this year,” said sophomore Samuel Avila. “I especially like the overcast skies because we have so few of those in Tucson during the year.”

Earlier in 2017, Tucson experienced the warmest June in its weather history. Then, Tucson and much of Southern Arizona experienced the wettest July- ever!

Why stop the records there?

This past Thanksgiving, Tucson hit a record 91 degrees, and the records kept being shattered. December 2017 and January 2018 were in Tucson’s Top Five warmest list for those months.

Winter is not officially over until next Tuesday, March 20, but if the trend continues, Winter 2017-18 will probably go into Tucson’ weather books as one of the warmest on record.

While much of Arizona has been basking in the heat throughout the past five months, much of the rest of the country has been drastically below normal—frigid temperatures that few of us could ever relate to. Can any of us even imagine what 40 below feels like?

Now you may be wondering: What is going on?

Pueblo science teacher Mrs. Lisa Shepherd said, “We need to learn more about how pollution is affecting our planet the most and to recycle more often. This planet needs to support and develop new products that will be beneficial to our planet.”

She paused and added, “We can work with legislators to create laws to help our environment, and we have to initiate change.”

The forecast for the first day of spring break…? Try 70 degrees on Friday; the normal high is near 75 degrees.

Go figure… Happy Spring Break!
