Posing in their choir dresses, seniors Ava Callaway and Charlotte Newman take a photo at the Region concert. The concert was held on Nov. 12, and 47 of the choir program’s students practiced for 10 hours in preparation for the concert. “I love the Region concert,” Newman said. “It’s the best voices in the region all together, so basically every moment is so musical. I think my favorite part was definitely our ending song “Trinity Te Deum.” It’s just a gorgeous, happy song that is full of so many powerful chords.”

Beabadoobee’s album “Beatopia” is the epitome of bringing a dreamworld to life through music. With her beautiful balance of different instruments and the unreal lyrics she creates and voice she garners, enjoying the album is easy. Hearing how she deals with her various problems in love through song is an experience I’ll never tire of.

During DEN on Sept. 20, students who were already 18, or who will be turning 18 soon, filled out Voter Registration forms. Rho Kappa president and senior Ariana Balakrishnan helped oversee the voter registration event. “I think it’s really important for high schoolers, or anyone eligible to vote, to get started doing that process at a young age because it’s a part of our civic duties and you might as well start young, Balakrishnan said. It’s a right that everyone should be able to exercise and I’m really glad that Rho Kappa could bring this experience to the school.

It provided an equal amount of laughs and tears while telling the life story of McCurdy.

From right to left, senior Patrick Riordan, junior Jonathan Levinsky, sophomore Krishnan Muthukumar, junior Jackson Whitmire, senior Cyrus Vansickle and junior Aidan Cox, pose after going to an escape room as part of the Choir program’s Pitch Black weekend outing. The group also went to the Museum of Ice Cream and Whataburger. The main reason the event was planned was to strengthen their bond as a group, according to Riordan. “Pitch Black is always a very tightly knit community, so there’s always a lot of close bonding and friendships,” Riordan said. “I think this year, that’s especially true with the new members coming in. They’re all close with each other and so now we’ve grown closer with them as a whole. We’re honestly closer than I was with the last generation of seniors, which is my goal for this year.”

The newest Crumbl location has made it easy to pick up the weekly menu. The lineup for the first week of May is pictured: Pink Velvet Cupcake, Hazelnut Mudslide ft. Nutella, Mom’s Favorite and Mango Frozen Yogurt. My favorite out of them all would have to be the Pink Velvet Cupcake. The perfect cookie to frosting ratio easily placed it in my top five Crumbl cookies. The slight strawberry flavor gives the cookie a nice flavor profile overall, and the buttercream frosting creates the most perfect cookie.

What’s the Lineup?

Posing with her steer, senior Emma Janysek smiles at an FFA competition. Janysek has participated in FFA since sophomore year and this was her final year she contributed for the school. “I’d get to the barn, then I’d have to feed my cow and my pig,” Janysek said. “They’re both gone now sadly, but then I went to school and typically, if I had Robotics that day, which I normally did, I’d go to my off period to get Chick-fil-a, come back then have to do Robotics for three hours. Then I’d leave the Robotics team to go back to the barn, feed my steer again, and walk him for thirty minutes. Because you know how you walk a dog? You kind of have to do that with a cow, just to get them used to walking. So when you take him to the show they know how to walk in the ring and don’t freak out. But raising a steer was really cool. Not a lot of people do that and it’s a lot of work. But I think it paid off.”

Holding a microphone, junior Abby Martinez, middle, hosts alongside two now-alumnis during last years Cedar Park Tonight. The entire broadcast staff has worked on the event since the beginning of the year, it’s a show that’s been hosted by the Wolfcast anchors every year since 2017. “I’m most looking forward to seeing all the segments on stage,” Martinez said. “Sometimes we don’t always know how things will play out with games like Egg Russian Roulette so it keeps the show interesting. I’m looking forward to bonding with the staff even more throughout the week and getting to show everyone the hard work we’ve been putting on. We spend most of our time featuring other students and programs so it’s cool to be able to have our own show where we still get to feature other programs but also a lot of our own work.”

Making finger foods, junior Sophie Dawson prepares a charcuterie board for her soirée table. All junior classes had to read The Great Gatsby in class and then held a 1920s themed party on March 23-24. “I thought the book itself was really eye-opening and entertaining,” Dawson said. “But the party was more enjoyable than the book, which makes sense, but I thought I would’ve enjoyed the book more. It was fun to act like I lived in the 1920s. I encourage next year’s juniors to not blow it off, because that’s lame and the party is really fun if you actually participate.”

Enjoy the Party, Old Sport
