Relationships are a hard thing to maintain in general, but a lot of people, mostly teens, are victims of unfair or abusive relationships. The unfortunate thing is that it’s easier for teens to fall in love at these ages, yet they don’t exactly see how poor their partner is treating them exactly see how bad or awful their partner can be because they’re  blinded by love or too afraid to speak up. This happens because two people that date can have different reasons for the relationships, as one might want to be loved and cared for while one just wants attention and to be told they’re great. Down below I have provided links to websites talking about this problem of teen violence and how to stop and help with the situation.

It’s a new year, which also means it’s a new you, and what better way to spend the first month of this year by improving and setting goals for oneself. To start off, we should try to be more positive this year and think a bit more about the things we’re thankful for and lucky to have. Although, it may not be thanksgiving, but a friendly reminder is always good to have, especially in trying times. Second, we should give ourselves goals such as starting off the day smiling and even making sure to eat breakfast, as it is the most important meal of the day. Even though the masks may be a tad uncomfortable, at least they aren’t bland or plain and you can customize yours to whatever you like. So remember this month, all you have to do is think and act positively, not only for yourself, but others too, as it could make a difference, and might even help someone to see things maybe aren’t so bad.

Student Spotlight

By: Ricky Fabrow 

This student spotlight is about a very unique and hard working gal named Emma Poorboy. She’s an online learner and prefers to work at home as it is easier and quieter than school is and would rather stay there than go back. She works hard and gets every assignment that’s thrown her way done and knows when to ask for help when she needs it. She does what she does in order to pursue her career in babysitting as she does like kids.

Two of her teachers have said some very nice things about her:

“She consistently turns in her assignments, asks questions, and reaches out to teachers if she needs help.  She is very concerned about her grades and makes sure that she communicates effectively with her mom and the teachers to get the best grade.”  -Ms. Flores

“She is a very hardworking young girl. Always reaches out when she has a question either about content or assignments. She always comes to our Zoom meetings and has turned in all assignments. She is a wonderful young lady that I enjoy having in my class.” -Ms. Infante

Sweet Treats

By: Ricky Fabrow

This is the season to get spooky and dress up as a random fictional character just to get some free candy. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t make your own spooky treats instead of eating pre-made ones, this one’s all about the bats so let’s begin, shall we? So, first here’s what you’ll need.

INGREDIENTS

  • 15 Double Stuf Oreos
  • 1/2 cup chocolate wafers
  • 20 candy eyeballs

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Take 5 of the Oreos and carefully cut in half. Separate the pieces and scrape off the filling. Each Oreo will give you 4 “bat wings.” Take 2 of the Oreo pieces and insert into the cream filling of an Oreo then press down on the Oreo to help it stay in place.
  2. Add the chocolate wafers to a microwave-safe bowl and melt about 20 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until melted and smooth.
  3. Using a spoon, scoop a little of the melted chocolate on top of the Oreo. Then use the back of the spoon to evenly spread the melted chocolate over it.
  4. Gently press 2 candy eyes on the Oreo to resemble the bat eyes. Repeat until all the Oreo tops are covered with the chocolate and the candy eyes have been added. Place in the fridge or freezer until the chocolate is set.
  5. Keep stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

And after that, Bam! You’ll be able to enjoy your bat oreo cookies in no time. A very simple, quick and delicious treat to enjoy either by yourself or perhaps even with friends.
