Spring Break Staycation
By Alfonso Monge
Starting this Saturday, our beloved Crawfordsville High School will be closing its doors and entrusting us to uphold the Athenian way in our escapades during Spring Break. The question now is how and what are we supposed to do during these moments of liberation? There are some that have thought ahead and plan on enjoying time away like Mrs. Shultz who will partake in all the leisures Florida has to offer. Others have obligations beyond the week of warm winds and might dedicate portions of their time to fine tune their physical feats so as not to let their teams down. Then there's the obvious truth that comes with any high school experience in knowing that the block of time once held by the school is going to be consumed by work. While these choices are all well and good, they'll likely not take all the time in one's day unless uncombined; so the question remains. What do you do when you're not needed elsewhere?
The obvious decisions would be to enjoy ones youth with the company you've made in relaxing environments like bowling, going to see a movie at the AMC, or just going out for a burger. There's smaller performances that you can make quick plans for, like Travis Dennings in Indianapolis on Friday to kick off your Spring Break. Just finding time with your friends or a special someone can ejoy the statements above or for a smaller budget expenditure strolls along a park or small get together will suffice, It's sufficient to say that the options are limitless and the amount of leisure one can have doesn't need to hold reliance on the company of others. Any day, especially a rainy one could detriment plans and or move the agenda of an excuse to sit back, relax, and binge whatever your heart yearns. Shows like the CW bunch that are currently running have never been given a better opportunity to be caught up with. Upcoming and pre-existing music are doing fantasy like wonders towards our ears and inspire our creative desires. For the Athenians whose hustle doesn't stop when school does, the plethora of music is a treat to enjoy when carving the foundations for your futures.
Activities like exercise to better one's outlook of oneself will find Spring Break a choice time to start or continue their journey of mental fortitude. Activities like online courses for those trying to reach higher heights or practice your talents are viable uses of time. Anyone could do anything that they felt would put them at ease with themselves. The options are up to you and what you choose to do for your enjoyment.
Line Up for A Chorus Line
By E. Bowling
In two weeks, Crawfordsville High School students will be lining up to watch the school’s production of A Chorus Line (High School Edition). A Chorus Line is the story of the seventeen dancers attempting to convince director Zach (Peyton Suitor) and his assistant Lori (Tayla Haas) that they deserve a part in the “chorus line” of an unnamed Broadway show, telling their life stories by the end. Their stories range from the tough and streetwise Al (Marshall Horton), Bobby (Sam Doty), Diana (Tori Abston) to the experienced such as Mike (Sam Doty), Cassie (Reagan Minnette), Connie (Marla Gutierrez), Don (Caleb Belt), and Greg (Amaya Moore) to those who find solace in dance Bebe (Demi Haas), Judy (Logan Hall), Kristine (Emma Richardson), Maggie (Gracie Leonard), and Paul (Eli Reeves). In addition to these, there is brassy Sheila (Annie Wilson), sassy Val (Taedyn Cook), likeable Richie (DRae Beller), first-timer Mark (Reese Minnette), and an ensemble of Haley Burke, Isabella de-Assis Wilson, William Johnson, Lilly Klingbeil, Zac Kristina, and Taylore Thompson. A Chorus Line (High School Edition) will take place on April 4th and 5th at 7 p.m. and April 7th at 2:30 p.m. in the CHS auditorium. Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for students, and children four and under get in free. Break a leg cast members!
Battle of the Bots
By KJ Smith, Editor
This past Saturday, the Crawfordsville High School robotics team hosted and competed in the Indiana State Robotics competition. The robotics team, composed of three teams, sent both TOBOR and Botman to the state competition. The teams did pretty well in the competition. TOBOR, which is comprised of seniors Kyler Morgan and Logan Vogler, juniors Tayden Morgan, Sam Foster, Luka Mikek, Ethan Fry, and Mariel Oshel, and sophomore Emily Bost, placed fifth in the competition, one spot short of qualifying for the World Championships. However, they can still go to the World Championships if one of the four teams cannot go. They also won the second highest award at the competition, the Think Award. The other CHS Robotics team, Botman, also took home an award at the State Competition. Congratulations to our CHS Robotics teams and all of their accomplishments at this year's State Competition.
