News Roundup

HIGH SCHOOL BULLETIN BOARD

ST. PETERSBURG COLLEGIATE

The Force is with them, at least on Thursdays: Alia Davis, senior and avid member of the school's Apollonian Society, sports her Star Wars T-shirt to commemorate Star Wars T-Shirt Thursday. The weekly event, which encourages students to display their geek pride by wearing their favorite Star Wars apparel, was started last year by student Cami Wooley. Although Wooley has since moved to farther solar systems, local sci-fi fans continue to celebrate a galaxy far, far away. — Lillian Skye Noble, senior, tb-two* staffer

CHAMBERLAIN HIGH

Reverse logic: Has anyone else ever noticed that the number tag for locker 906 in the 200 hall is the locker tag from locker 609 turned upside down? Reduce, reuse and recycle. I love you Chamberlain. — Abby Rinaldi, junior, tb-two* staffer

TAMPA BAY TECH

Making unique the norm: Breona Bass, known as "Gucci" by her student colleagues, dares to be different, and wants others to, too. She is the founder of Seek Unique, a club that idolizes students who dare to dress differently. "I see a lot of students at TBT dressed in a unique fashion," said Bass, "so I thought it would be fun to put all styles out there together in a club." Being your own person, and not letting society tell you what you can or cannot do — why doesn't everyone seek unique? — Danyscia Jarvis, junior, tb-two* staffer

ST. PETERSBURG HIGH

Painting with pride: Sammy Xaypharath, junior, paints the face of sophomore Nikko Francisco to welcome him to Leo, one of the service clubs on campus. Applicants for service clubs learned if they were accepted through the schoolwide event known as "tapping." Clubs handed out bags of snacks and props to their new members to boost school spirit. — Nandi Musengwa, senior, tb-two* staffer

HILLSBOROUGH HIGH

Flashing allowed: The Student Government Association held a flash mob in celebration of the upcoming homecoming theme, The Great Gatsby. Students broke out into dance during the middle of lunch to an array of tunes from the '20s. Homecoming is Oct. 12. — Hannah Baade, senior, tb-two* staffer

PALM HARBOR UNIVERSITY

Laying down the law: School resource officer Deputy Jeffrey Cuttitta spoke to a class of AVID sophomores and seniors about law enforcement. He covered the intricacies of being an officer as well as the requirements for the career. — Dao Trac, sophomore, tb-two* BB correspondent

BROOKS DEBARTOLO COLLEGIATE HIGH

It's a bird, a plane, a hoodie: Seniors Matt Lozada, Arsana Wiggins and Hannah Isajar give senior Chelsea Pelham a lift to help model their new senior hoodies. The long-awaited sweatshirts represent the Class of 2014's theme, superheroes. — Chelsea Pelham, senior, tb-two* BB correspondent

KING HIGH

Wanted, dead or alive: The senior section microwave made a guest appearance at lunch last week, but students were only allowed to look at the tantalizing piece of machinery. It failed to return the next day. In the past few years, seniors lost their ability to leave lunch early, causing some seniors to ask what privileges will remain for the class of 2014. Is this the dirty work of a microwave thief, or the result of seniors abusing a privilege? — William Harvey, senior, tb-two* student editor

ROBINSON HIGH

Silent but deadly?: A faint smell of gas was detected in the science hallway last Thursday, causing the displacement of students from the math and science hallway classrooms into the cafeteria and auditorium for first period. "I was happy about it, since it gave me some time to study for my English vocabulary quiz that I didn't have before," said freshman Jonah Miller. District maintenance investigated the scent and determined nothing was dangerous. By second period, classes had resumed in their normal locations. — Isabel Hanewicz, freshman, tb-two* BB correspondent

Compiled by William Harvey, senior, tb-two* student editor

We want your news! tb-two* begins its fifth year with a new weekly feature to keep you in the know about what's going on in Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas schools. Each week, the tb-two* High School Bulletin Board will bring you quick dispatches from the front lines, be they good, bad or ugly. Interested in tacking a note to the board?
