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.”

The team will face Corpus Christi Veterans Memorial High School on Friday at 5:30 p.m in San Antonio. “I’m feeling so excited [to move on in the playoffs],” senior guard Avery Allmer said. “I feel like this is a big moral boost because we’ve lost a lot of close games and I feel like this is just a really big win for us.” Photo by Alyssa Fox

Carefully balancing one piece of paper over another, junior Ryder Wilkinson builds a paper tower with his team at the Architecture Club’s second meeting. Ryder said he was interested in architecture in the past, but the Architecture Club allowed him to get back into it and learn new things. “I [won] one of the competitions, the first one that we had,” Wilkinson said. “[In the second competition] we lost [because] we could not build a tall enough tower that could withstand the blow of a powerful fan, [but] I still had fun because I was with my friends.”

A few of my favorite movies of this month are shown in this image. I had to limit myself to only two Andy Samberg movies, otherwise the graphic looks more like a memorial.

I was lazily scrolling through...

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.”

Celebrities spring show

     The Celebrities dance team is well known among students for its crowd-pleasing halftime routines and pep rally performances in the fall, but each spring brings with it a new spotlight for the talented group of young dancers. It is the time when stadium lights are replaced by stage lights, and kick routines are joined with jazz, hip-hop and lyrical performances. The Celebrities’ Stardust spring show is one that students, parents and dancers alike look forward to year after year. The annual show showcased many memorable performances and featured Cedar Parks very talented dancers.

     This year’s show took place April 14 through 16 in the PAC. The theme of the show was “Celebrities in the City,” which gave way to urban motifs and a number of fun new routines.

     “The performance [is my favorite part],” Ada Zhang, senior and co-captain, said. “That is where we get to show everyone what we work the hardest for.”

     One special addition to this year’s show was the re-instatement of the guys’ dance. This previously popular aspect of the show was once again added to allow guys to take part and enjoy performing alongside the ladies. As Cedar Park was deprived of its annual seniors vs. juniors dance-off at the Crosstown Showdown pep-rally, the Celebrities worked hard to incorporate as many participants into the guys’ dance as possible.

     “In past years, the guys’ dance was comprised of honor guards and the Celebrities’ boyfriends,” Zhang said. “So this year we tried our best to gather guys and each night we had more than the last!”

     The dance allowed the boys to have a good time doing something they normally might not do, and the results were positive.

     “[I joined the dance] because I thought it would be fun and a good way to help out the Celebrities,” Donelvan Thigpen, freshman, said. “[I enjoyed] getting to meet new people, and having fun on the stage.”

     The guys’ dance was a huge success once more, winning over both the crowd and the Celebrities themselves.

     “It was so good,” Zhang said. “The guys were very enthusiastic about being in our show. They did an awesome job adding flare to a simple dance we taught them.”

     The entire show totaled nearly three hours of length and included other performers as well; including the Cedar Park Middle School Crimson Cadet dance team and, recent state champions, the Cedar Park High School Color Guard. Such a long and extensive performance takes skill and leadership to put together and execute seamlessly.

     “As an officer, I have to help choreograph many dances and teach them to the team,” Zhang said. “For the most part they are attentive and eager to learn.”

     The Celebrities have managed to dazzle the audience once more, and the experience is one that brings them all together as a team. Even as the 2011 football season looms nearer and the Celebrities turn down the stage lights to gear up for spirited fall routines, Cedar Park High School students and faculty are sure to be treated to yet another radiant production come spring 2012.
