Presenting in front of the class, senior Jaden Kolenbrander introduces students to his new chapter of Amnesty International Club. The club, started by Kolenbrander, will serve as a way for CPHS students to speak out and educate themselves about political issues and will hold meetings on the third Tuesday of each month in room 5009. “Anyone who is interested in increasing their involvement in the community and advocating for far-reaching issues that affect everyone [can join],” Kolenbrander said. “However, we also want to emphasize that anyone can become an advocate. Its a good opportunity for them to become more involved in their community and learn about the importance of human rights advocacy.”

Olivia Wilde’s “Don’t Worry Darling” was released to theaters on Sept. 23 and had already gained a large following thanks to the well known actors involved in the film and drama between the films cast. The movie follows Alice and Jack Chambers, a couple living a perfect 1950s lifestyle fit with a nice suburban town and provided jobs thanks to the “Victory Project.” I thought the film was just okay and didn’t really live up to the expectations I had set for a film involving such big actor names and such an aesthetically pleasing movie.

Posing for the camera, seniors celebrate the start of their last year at this years senior sunrise. This year’s annual tradition was held on Aug. 22 in the Milburn park parking lot and came with complications and confusion that led to obstacles the Student Council had to overcome. “Planning events this year, I would say that it was stressful at first just coming in off of summer and not having done anything and then full on sprinting into the first events,” senior Ainsley Harlan said. “But I think we’ve gotten the hang of it. We’ve kind of gotten our feet under us and we have our group chat, it’s gotten a lot easier to communicate. It can be stressful at times, but I think more importantly it’s fun, I know that some of the people I’m planning it with, like Ariana [Balakrishnan], we have a lot of fun doing it and we enjoy what we’re doing. We like giving the student body a voice. Its kind of why we do what we do, is to tell the admins what the student body wants.”

Hitting their pose for their final performance, the celebrities dance team finishes out their season with their spring show, “Up, Up and Away.” The performance was held on May 6 and 7 in the PAC, which the team has been preparing for this show since the end of the end of football season in January. “It’s been difficult to process the fact that my life as a Celeb is finally over,” Kim said. “Now that the red curtain has closed, it’s finally settling in that my time wearing the glitter and the boots has expired. I’ve known that I would have to face the bittersweet ending at some point, but it’s definitely been harder than I thought it would be to let go of this team. In some ways I’m glad I have something that I will miss, because that means that this was worthwhile and valuable to me. More than anything, however, I just feel fortunate to have passed through such a respectable and enriching organization. The lessons and memories I’ve gained from Celebrities is something I will never take for granted.”

 Sporting their Bobcat pride, seniors Emma Frith and Lauren Dane show off their future school, Texas State University. The duo are known to work backstage in tech during theatre productions, with Dane mainly manning costume design and occasionally lights, and Frith in the stage manager position. “Im super sad that this is my last year working with Emma because it’s what brought us together,” Dane said. “But I’m so excited to go to college with her and see everything she does as she continues with theatre. I really love the friendship Emma and I have and I want to keep it through college.”

The film “Everything, Everywhere All at Once,” directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, was released on March 11 at Austin’s very own South by Southwest. The movie follows Evelyn Wang, a mother and wife, struggling with taxes as she continues to run her own laundromat sitting just below her familys small apartment. Through beautiful lighting, costuming and storytelling, I was left speechless and on the edge of my seat for the entirety of this perfectly put together movie.

South by Southwest is a city wide festival held here in Austin that showcases Music, Film and technology. This year, after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, South By Southwest was held from Mar. 11-20 and had venues spread around the city containing conferences, movie premieres, live music and many appearances from celebrities. “It was pretty cool,” junior Jack Polishook said. “I only did the free stuff because I didn’t have one of the passes but there was a lot of variety. There were cool art shows, there was a lot of cool music, there were a lot of people giving out free stuff, all of these companies giving out free things.”

Geography Club members use geographical clues to figure out the mystery location in order to win another round of the online game, Geoguessr. The club, created by junior Ryan Green, meets every other Thursday to learn more about the environments around them in a more laid-back environment free of stress. “The initial goal [of the club] is to get more people excited about geography because I guess it’s kind of like a stigma that Americans are bad at geography, which is kind of true,” Green said. “I just wanted more people to get excited about geography and if it wasn’t laid back, then it wouldn’t be as exciting and not as many people would show up.”

Monster High is back with the introduction of the new doll line, Haunt Couture, after a very long hiatus. Their last project was the Skullector line, featuring freak fabulous adaptations of classic horror icons such as Beetlejuice and Pennywise. I am so pleased to see that the franchise from my childhood is back with new modern renditions of the beloved main characters, and I can’t wait to see what the brand will do in the future.

DECA teams pose with their medals at districts on Jan. 22, where 10 students advanced to the State Competition. This year Districts was held at Cedar Ridge high school and consisted of students from Leander, Round Rock, and Austin school districts presenting in either written or role play events. “Im really excited, not just for my team but for our entire chapter,” junior Ariana Balakrishnan said. “It’s a really big deal for us. Sending most of our competitors to State, especially after our year off, is really exciting cause now we’re back in person we can finally experience it like normal we get to see people get to talk to new members from other chapters it’s so just exciting.”

Welcoming back the familiar faces of Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette, this new addition to the “Scream” franchise also adds new faces such as Jenna Ortega and Dylan Minnette. This new installment to the series wasn’t as perfect as I had hoped but it was still exciting to see this modern adaptation to the franchise. The film keeps it’s classic “who done it” attitude and makes sure to keep viewers guessing who’s behind the mask.
