Democratic Nominee votes

Thank you to everyone who voted on the survey and gave us feedback! We would like to explain that the reason that the survey was titled Democratic Nominee is because the only Republican running is president Donald Trump, and the Democrats are currently deciding on their candidate. Many of you decided to separately vote for him anyway, so we included it in the pie chart below. There were also many votes in the other section but they did not fit the theme of this survey and were off topic. We held a separate survey where students could make any comments […]

What We Know – Halloween Kills 2020

Halloween (2018)–or Halloween Returns–will have it’s 2 year anniversary in October, and is celebrating with the next installment in the Halloween film series.  40 years ago, the serial killer Michael Myers was shown to all audiences across the globe and has since become an icon, along with his revival, Laurie Strode. The 1977 masterpiece, Halloween, has spurred numerous sequels, books, toys, etc., but in 2018 the series was rebooted completely, leaving the original and new Halloween to be the only canonical film in the series. Movie-goers loved the newest installment rating it “fresh” on RottenTomatoes, and begging for a sequel. […]

Top 5 Tim Burton Films

Chances are, you have seen at least one, maybe two, or maybe all of Tim Burton’s films. He is one of the greatest movie makers of all time with his stylistic sets, characters, and stories. Below are my top 5 favorite movies he has ever made. They were judged on their stories, morals, visuals, score, and characters.  5 – Bigfish (2003): To start, Bigfish should be placed closer to the number one spot, but the other films are just too good! This movie flies somewhat under the radar, but mustn’t be overlooked. An entire little town was built just for this […]

The Importance of Serious Plays

The NTHS Drama department is currently hard at work on our spring production of The Children’s Hour by playwright Lillian Hellman, who is known as a provocative and controversial social activist of the 1900s. This show was cause for controversy as it depicted the two main characters, Karen Wright and Martha Dobie, ruined after they were accused of being lovers, which, during the period it was written in, would be considered sinful, or unusual. This show follows our last year’s winter production, which was a production of The Miracle Worker, which is a play based on the life of Helen […]

We Mustn’t Be Silent

February is Black History Month. A time where all the great persons of color who have improved our society, are celebrated. On February 5th, some students participated in the “Day of Silence,” a day in which silence is held to commemorate those who are and have been affected by racism from both harassment, physical violence, and/or even death. It is incredibly serious and I cannot stress that enough, but after February 5th we can no longer be silent. The greatest way to show respect and appreciation to those who we have lost is to stand up for them, fight for […]

The Day Of Silence

Hello Students, This week is Black Lives Matter Week. Teaching Tolerance explains that the goal is “to challenge structural and systemic racism while centering the lives of black students inside and outside the classroom.” On Wednesday, February 5th, some of our fellow students may choose to participate in a “Day of Silence.” This event is NOT a school or district sponsored event. They may be wearing red duct tape across their mouths to symbolize the day of silence. We ask that you do not make fun of them or antagonize them in any way, and that you respect their choice […]

Thurston Unified!

Ms. Laverty has a message for everyone: Hi everyone! Just another reminder that Thurston Unified is a club that allows high school students with and without disabilities to play on a school team together. Furthermore, if you have any of my athletes (people with disabilities) or partners (people without disabilities) in your classes, and you have a moment, invite them to share their experience in Unified! It’s a great opportunity to get the Unified message out in front of the general education students and the community so they can learn more about the acceptance and inclusion of people with disabilities.
