Wharton High

What does the Fox say? Fox News came out to Wharton High School last Friday to hold a MyFoxPrep pep rally and showcase the team before their game against Plant High. Cheerleaders pictured here are holding a sign to support fellow Wildcat football player Sean McNamee, who is in the hospital after suffering a head injury. — Nikki Morse, junior, tb-two* staffer

LAKEWOOD HIGH

Quite "disturbeing": Anyone else see the misspelled sign on an English teacher's door during test administration? I hope the test was on poetic irony! — Owen Dyches, junior, tb-two* staffer

PALM HARBOR UNIVERSITY

Potty mouthed: Next week, PHUHS will put on its fall musical, Urinetown. Tim Hart, senior, who plays the role of Officer Lockstock, described the show as the "most hilarious, self-aware musical about pee ever written." $15 will get you admittance to one of the three shows on Nov. 7, 8 or 9, and more toilet humor than you can shake a plunger at. — Joey Hager, senior, tb-two* staffer

ST. PETERSBURG CATHOLIC, Canterbury School of Florida

Making waves: At left, St. Petersburg Catholic swim team members cheer on their teammates at the District 8 meet last Saturday.

Hillsborough High

(S)He's so hot: Senior Faith Hendriex participates in a game where blindfolded students had to dress as the opposite gender at the school's pep rally. Hendriex and the seniors won, earning possession of the school spirit stick and "best cross-dressers" bragging right. — Hannah Baade, senior, tb-two* staffer

St. Petersburg High

Trick-or-calculus: "Mr. Happy Pumpkin" adds a nice touch of Halloween spirit to Gianna Zengel's math classes. A few teachers went all out in decorating their classrooms, some of them even handing out candy. Teachers who aren't celebrating Halloween may have to be on the lookout for tricks from more mischievous students. — Nandi Musengwa, senior, tb-two* staffer

TAMPA BAY TECH

Why so serious? A note mysteriously tacked to an outside lunch table was the talk of the campus this week. Who could have possibly put it there? What could have caused their grudge against teenagers? The prevailing rumor is that a senior placed it on the table to mock underclassmen who take their lofty, parent-funded lives for granted. — Danyscia Jarvis, junior, tb-two* staffer

Boca Ciega High

Got brains? Shelley Nickelson, left, and Destiny Neff, right, debut their Halloween costumes on Supernatural Flock Day during Boca Ciega's homecoming week. Administration may have to rethink Supernatural Flock Day after unleashing a horde of the undead on campus. — Elizabeth Brown-Worthington, sophomore, tb-two* staffer
