On Thursday November 30th, the Logan Leadership held its first ever fall festival at the basketball courts. We decided to go to the festival and check out all of the fun and amazing things that leadership had put together for the festival.
When arriving at around 4:45, we noticed that a few of the food trucks had already arrived and were serving food to people who also came early. There were a variety of food trucks ranging from a waffle truck, to a Mexican food truck. The prices for the trucks were reasonable and the food was prepared and served very fast. There was something for everyone at the festival.

Seniors, it’s that time of the year to start your college applications. Deadlines are creeping in, and you surely don’t want to miss them!
Here are a few students’ thoughts about their process of applying for college.
- “Currently, I have applied for seven in-state colleges. I have spent a huge amount of money paying for my application fees. I feel like the most stressful thing about working on my college apps are writing the tedious personal essays for UC’s,” said Christine Vu, a senior.
- “I have applied for ten colleges so far. Luckily, I was able to use a fee waiver for my application fees. I have to say, writing the essays for colleges is frustrating and can take a long time finishing them,” said Ishaan Sharma, a senior.

Two weeks ago at James Logan High School, students and staff aimed to help students think about college decision and help them with their applications in a fun way.
During Logan’s college week, students and staff organized activities like scavenger hunts, dodge ball games, food fairs and, club stands all held in Colt Court. Though there were so many activities and options, not many students participated in the college week activities or seemed to be engaged in the activities that students and staff offered.
Jamie Mansalay, a senior, didn’t attend college week. She said, “I’ve been busy with other school activity, I’ve been also trying to keep my grades up.”

“HeartBreak on a Full Moon” is the most recent album released by Chris Brown. According to HotNewHipHop, the album “Goes Gold In First Week”.
Sade Aleese said, “I think Chris did a great job and the production of the album was awesome as well as the quality. He put over 45 songs on the album which is different. My favorite songs from the album would have to be “Sip”, “Tell Me What To Do”, and “Everybody Knows”. I do recommend this album to everyone regardless of the type music you prefer to listen to. The message behind the album is how people can use you for love but mainly how people use you to get to where they need to be in life and once they reach that point they leave.”
“HeartBreak on a Full Moon” will continue to top chart According to Billboard, Chris Brown scores his seventh Number one on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.

We asked teachers at Logan what their first jobs were. There was a vast array of responses, with many teachers saying they would never return to their first jobs.
- “My first job was being a receptionist at a dentist and it was at a mall. I was working all hours in the weekends and it was an open business meaning the mall closed but the dentist stayed open. I applied because my dad said that, “if you want to drive a car you have to pay insurance.” It was super boring. It was just me in a dentist office sitting there for 8 or ten hours. Students should get a job because it teaches you responsibility and will justify your attendance. I would never want to work there again and it’s not there anymore anyways. I made 6.50 an hour so i couldn’t afford to live.”

We wanted to see how the students of Logan deal with negative people and how effective it was. We wanted to help out students who may not know how to deal with these kinds of people with personal experiences.
Jherse Atamerano, a sophomore, said she deals with negative people by “blocking them on social media and just back way to let them do whatever.” When asked if that was effective she said, “Yes, it’s effective and if they continue then it just shows their true character.”
Austin Flores, a Junior, said that he “ignores them” when he encounters negative people. He said when asked if it was effective,“ Yeah because they know their not winning when they see that I’m not affected by it.”
