PHOTO ESSAY AND DOODAD IDEAS FOR YOUR TWO ASSIGNMENTS EACH WEEK. PLEASE ASK PAGE EDITORS WHAT THEY NEED OR WANT!:
  • DOODADS for the bottom stripes of our pages: These can be anything, but we need to actually MAKE THEM. For instance:
    • MASKS and CUTOUTS of things used around the school: water bottles, books, weights, shoes, Chromebooks, lunches, projects, artwork, sports equipment, uniforms, keychains, backpacks, musical instruments, video game covers, energy drinks, outfits, jewelry, fast food, coffee drinks, phones, snacks... You get the idea.
    • QUOTES: Get quotes from someone in a class or in a grade or in a sport or in a club or at a fast food restaurant or in the commons area or in gym class or whatever. Put some "BIG QUOTE MARKS" on the page stripe and drop your quote in place. PLEASE MAKE A MASK OF YOUR QUOTE PERSON AND ADD THAT, AS WELL!
    • SURVEY RESULTS: Ask students about things- what's your favorite color, shoes, phones, app, cartoon, 2023 movie, class, lunch menu item, energy drink, place to "hang out," classroom review game, book read in LA, art project, musical instrument to play, places to go on a date, champion to play in League, uniform to wear at a game, type of test to take, snacks from the gas station, how to avoid drama, memory of Freshman Year/Middle School, type of cookie, etc. ASK ANYTHING, make it a simple graph!
    • GOOD AND BAD: We have lots of room for little sayings, observations, pros and cons, etc. See the example on the PAGE TEMPLATE, things like: YES, BUT or THE GOOD NEWS and the BAD NEWS or the BEST THING and the WORST THING, etc. For instance: The best thing about Senior Year: Open blocks and electives. The worst thing about Senior Year: Applying for colleges. AP CLASSES- Good news: College Credits! Bad news: Lots of work! GOVERNMENT STUDENTS- GOOD NEWS: Open Book Test, BAD NEWS: All Essay Questions. UPPER CLASSMEN- Good news- Driving to school! Bad news- Gas Prices. JUNIORS- GOOD NEWS: OPEN BLOCK! BAD NEWS: It's 3rd PERIOD.
    • GENERAL HISTORICAL INFORMATION: Doodads could easily be made out of plain old facts and statistics- Number of students in the Freshmen Class, Number of kills on the Volleyball Team for the year, Average Cost to fill a Car with Gas, Most popular phone of the year, Cost of a Cheeseburger at McDonald's, number of different classes offered at the school this year, Number of students taking AP or Concurrent Enrollment classes, etc.
  • PHOTOS AND STORIES: Interesting things happen all the time at Highland High School. We need to start taking photos of it and writing short stories about it. Something as simple as "standing in line for breakfast" or "taking a quiz in Government" or "Practicing a new song for the Christmas Concert" or "Washing up at the end of Art Class" or "Picking the right piece of wood for an Ag project" or "Giving a Presentation for a class" or "Playing a New Sport in Gym Class" or "Having to Study for a Hard Test" or "Sitting in the Hallway Reading" or "Coming back to school late after an appointment" or "Going to the Gas Station" or "Hanging out in the Parking Lot" or "Doing a Science Experiment"... You get the idea. PLEASE start taking photographs of these events and writing stories about them.

PHOTO ESSAY AND DOODAD IDEAS FOR YOUR TWO ASSIGNMENTS EACH WEEK. PLEASE ASK PAGE EDITORS WHAT THEY NEED OR WANT!:
  • DOODADS for the bottom stripes of our pages: These can be anything, but we need to actually MAKE THEM. For instance:
    • MASKS and CUTOUTS of things used around the school: water bottles, books, weights, shoes, Chromebooks, lunches, projects, artwork, sports equipment, uniforms, keychains, backpacks, musical instruments, video game covers, energy drinks, outfits, jewelry, fast food, coffee drinks, phones, snacks... You get the idea.
    • QUOTES: Get quotes from someone in a class or in a grade or in a sport or in a club or at a fast food restaurant or in the commons area or in gym class or whatever. Put some "BIG QUOTE MARKS" on the page stripe and drop your quote in place. PLEASE MAKE A MASK OF YOUR QUOTE PERSON AND ADD THAT, AS WELL!
    • SURVEY RESULTS: Ask students about things- what's your favorite color, shoes, phones, app, cartoon, 2023 movie, class, lunch menu item, energy drink, place to "hang out," classroom review game, book read in LA, art project, musical instrument to play, places to go on a date, champion to play in League, uniform to wear at a game, type of test to take, snacks from the gas station, how to avoid drama, memory of Freshman Year/Middle School, type of cookie, etc. ASK ANYTHING, make it a simple graph!
    • GOOD AND BAD: We have lots of room for little sayings, observations, pros and cons, etc. See the example on the PAGE TEMPLATE, things like: YES, BUT or THE GOOD NEWS and the BAD NEWS or the BEST THING and the WORST THING, etc. For instance: The best thing about Senior Year: Open blocks and electives. The worst thing about Senior Year: Applying for colleges. AP CLASSES- Good news: College Credits! Bad news: Lots of work! GOVERNMENT STUDENTS- GOOD NEWS: Open Book Test, BAD NEWS: All Essay Questions. UPPER CLASSMEN- Good news- Driving to school! Bad news- Gas Prices. JUNIORS- GOOD NEWS: OPEN BLOCK! BAD NEWS: It's 3rd PERIOD.
    • GENERAL HISTORICAL INFORMATION: Doodads could easily be made out of plain old facts and statistics- Number of students in the Freshmen Class, Number of kills on the Volleyball Team for the year, Average Cost to fill a Car with Gas, Most popular phone of the year, Cost of a Cheeseburger at McDonald's, number of different classes offered at the school this year, Number of students taking AP or Concurrent Enrollment classes, etc.
  • PHOTOS AND STORIES: Interesting things happen all the time at Highland High School. We need to start taking photos of it and writing short stories about it. Something as simple as "standing in line for breakfast" or "taking a quiz in Government" or "Practicing a new song for the Christmas Concert" or "Washing up at the end of Art Class" or "Picking the right piece of wood for an Ag project" or "Giving a Presentation for a class" or "Playing a New Sport in Gym Class" or "Having to Study for a Hard Test" or "Sitting in the Hallway Reading" or "Coming back to school late after an appointment" or "Going to the Gas Station" or "Hanging out in the Parking Lot" or "Doing a Science Experiment"... You get the idea. PLEASE start taking photographs of these events and writing stories about them.
