Known for his quirky ties, assistant principal George Miller holds one adorned with trumpets and music notes, just one of many of his musical ties. Over the past several years, Mr. Miller has been giving his eccentric ties away to students who compliment them. “I think the kids appreciate it when I give them one of my ties,” Mr. Miller said. “If a kid likes it and you give it to them, they’re happy.”

Dance sophomore Mason Evans and dance junior Brenan Gonzalez were just two of several male dancers in last year’s Spring Concert. “I think the biggest challenge [of being a male dancer] is all of the stigmas and stereotypes that come around,” dance junior Alex Thomas said. “[People say], ‘Oh, ballet or dance is not a sport and you don’t have to work as hard and this and that.’ Growing up and defying all of those odds is a challenge.”

Cystic fibrosis patients Stella (Haley Lu Richardson) and Will (Cole Sprouse) don’t let their medical restrictions hinder their feelings for each other. “It’s so different still having that intimacy and vulnerability and awkwardness and attraction but just by … looking at each other and connecting with your soul,” Richardson said, according to Entertainment Weekly. The two lovers sacrifice distance, or the lack thereof, in order to spend time with one another.

The Jazz Band holds their first concert of the year, having been practicing since Sept. in order to perform for an audience.. The students and conductors worked together to put on a show where bassists, pianists, and saxophonists alike performed songs under jazz subgenres such as blues and ragtime. “Usually as soon as one concert ends, we prepare for the next one,” band sophomore Fox Lopez said. “At the start of each year, we normally start around the second week of school, give or take a few days.”
