Senior executive editor Natalie Murray, senior associate editor Lily Cooper and junior designer Ava Eaton all sit in conversation with recent clients. After the completion of the Parks and Trails Foundation logo, representatives visited the T-Wolf Agency to provide thanks for all the work done. “I know how beneficial it is to be able to work with clients,” Murray said. “We had a previous executive editor come back and tell us how good of an opportunity it is to have this agency here especially if you want to go into graphic design after high school. The people she’s in classes with didn’t have any access to the things we do here and theres only one other LISD school that has a class like this. It’s just a really good opportunity to get real world experience especially when we get to work with people outside the school. It’s just so real to get that experience with actual clientele and how things really work in the industry.”

Pictured above is the crafting club social media page that junior Makena Filippoff and sophomore James Morris-Hodges created. The crafting club was created to allow students to have an opportunity to learn how to create different kinds of crafts and to collaborate with other students interested in crafting. “I love to do crafts but I find myself feeling lonely when doing crafts,” Filippoff said. “With no one to share my ideas or experiences with, it can get boring. I wanted to get a group of people that have an interest in learning [and] doing crafts to be able to have fun and socialize while crafting.”

Supporting senior Gavin Horton by his shoulders, sophomore and actor Darius Normandi poses for a group picture with part of Clue’s cast. The play will be in the cafeteria, bringing other challenges along with it. “I’m really excited because I’ve never done a 360-degree level cafeteria performance before,” Normandi said. “I really hope it turns out well, but I don’t have any experience with this kind of thing. I trust that other people know what they’re doing though. It has been tiring with all the late nights going home after school, but I really hope everyone enjoys it and that our efforts have been worth it.” Used with permission from Leilani Ibanez

At CP night that occurred Jan. 30, treasurer and senior Tiffany Lam on the right spent the evening introducing HOSA to potentially interested in joining students. ““This year they updated their guidelines and what they’re looking for,” Lam said. “We were surprised but I think it’s a good thing that they updated it because some of the stuff was a little bit more outdated. Last year when I was preparing I did a lot of textbook studying which I kind of regretted when the competition came. Now I’m doing a lot more physical and hands-on practice which is a lot more beneficial and for skills that can be used in real life.”

Frozen in place, the actors sophomores Leilani Ibanez, Ben Akers and Mia  Morneault perform in front of an audience for the PNG performance. The game they were playing is called Suggestions where the audience dictates what happens in the scene.  “PNG is like a family, Akers said. We joke around and sometimes we hate each other but most of the time we love each other and we’re always there to support each other. You can never really control who you interact with at any given time which I think is the funnest part of it.”

This is Musfeldt’s third year with the program, and he said he has enjoyed the process that comes with being a part of such a successful band. “A big part of band is just appreciating all of the music you get to hear and  focusing on achieving your own personal best, as opposed to striving for a certain placement or title,” Musfeldt said.
