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.”

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.

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.”

Fridays mean spirit days

Fall means football, and football means Friday spirit days. Each varsity football game day, students have the opportunity to dress up according to themes. Some students deck out from head to toe, while others take the lower key route. Either way, spirit days give students the opportunity to show school pride while dressing out of the norm.

“I like spirit days because they are the one day out of the week where you can dress crazy and not have to worry about impressing anyone,” senior Sabella Greenwell said. “I always dress up because I love wearing clothes I wouldn’t normally wear on a daily basis.”

This year, Decades Day brought back everything from bell-bottoms to deadstock glasses. One group of senior girls wore togas, a flashback all the way to the Grecian Era.

“We wanted to do something different from the typical 80s,” senior Kat Hill said. “Seniors wore togas last year, and Lindsay Stawowy came up with the idea to use sheets to wrap ourselves.”

The toga girls include Greenwell, Hill, Stawowy, Bailey Young, Sabrina Dagher, and Tahlea Holst. Although some students aren’t as enthusiastic about dressing up, Young doesn’t let them stop her from showing school spirit.

“I love spirit days,” Young said. “I wish more people dressed up, but I look forward to Fridays to dress up. Neon Day and Frat Day are my favorites. I wish we did Career Day also.”

The cheerleaders choose the spirit days ahead of time based on popular trends.

“We all get together during the summer and collaborate ideas,” senior cheerleader Carli Morgan said. “Themes usually change from year to year, but popular ones like Neon Day and Black Out stay because a lot of people dress up for them.”

Texas Pride Day, Decades Day, and Beach Day have already passed, but students still have the opportunity to show school spirit and have fun on Camo Day, Black Out, Frat Day, Pink Out, Superhero Day, and Neon Day. And of course there’s Homecoming on Oct. 4, the ultimate day to show school pride by decking out and dressing out in Timberwolf green and black.
