HIGH SCHOOL BULLETIN BOARD

ROBINSON HIGH

Spirit section update: When the Knights' first home football game rolled around this year, the roped-off section especially for students was missing. Knightmare spirit club faculty sponsor Ronald Simmons offers some reassurance. "We'd like to bring it back," he said, adding that the student section would be a topic of discussion at the club's first meetings. At the beginning of the year, it was not clear if Knightmare would continue being a club, leading some students to believe Robinson had lost its sense of spirit, not just its spirit section.

KING HIGH

Wait, wasn't prom just last week? Seniors Linda Lin, as a Hogwarts student, and Jackie Collier, as an assassin, dress for King High's homecoming spirit week. Usually homecoming is later in the season, but this year procrastinating students are rushing to find dates in time for their homecoming dance on Saturday. The early homecoming, tied to the football schedule, has caused a noticeable decrease in public proposals and left some hopeless romantics worried they won't land a date in time.

ST. PETERSBURG HIGH

Did you make the cut? Massive crowds press to see the posted lists of new service club members during lunch at the end of rush week. Membership is decided by current members and sponsors after prospective students interview and share talents.

PLANT CITY HIGH

Vandal tags with hate: Vulgar images (so offensive we covered them up in the photo) mar an outside wall at Plant City High during the first week of school. School administrators saw the person committing the vandalism via new surveillance camera footage after the fact and would not talk to tb-two* about the incident or name the vandal, except to say he was a former student. A check of law enforcement records did not turn up a report, and the tagging was cleaned up quickly by school employees. Before the graffiti were removed, teachers tried to herd students quickly past the mess.

— Rachel Curci, junior, tb-two* staffer

LENNARD HIGH

More to football than the game: Before the Lennard High JROTC Battalion reports for duty at Lennard football games, there's a lot of preparation and practice. Col. Robert Proctor measures cadet Matthew Alvarez for his ROTC uniform at the start of school. Among other duties, the battalion provides a color guard at games, even sharing the honor with rival teams, such as East Bay High. For more Lennard photos, go to tb-two.com.
