Softball Auction 2020

Posted December 3, 2020

Written By: Emma Brooks

This year’s softball auction was streamed via Facebook live on November 4th, 2020.  A change from last year, the 2020 auction was hosted by softball only, yet still had a terrific outcome.  The auction was held in the Live Oak High cafeteria with the help of the school’s media team and Vice Principal Gary Jones. 

The turnout for the auction was a surprising, yet heartwarming sign of the Watson community sticking together during the rough times the COVID-19 pandemic has presented.  Head coach, Katie Roux-Prescott, is overjoyed by the support from the community, “We are grateful to be a part of a school and community that comes together in hard times and finds ways to support our young athletes.”  The auction was organized by the softball team’s staff in order to raise money for the upcoming 2020-2021 season.  The softball team was very humbled by the love shown by the community and were very excited to interact with them.  Senior third- baseman Katie Van Der Mark feels the auction was a great success and allowed the softball team to showcase their hard work, “It created a platform to represent our culture and values we work on every single day.  I don’t think it could have gone any better.”  With the community turnout and the support of Watson, the softball team is very confident in their upcoming season and is thankful for the community that stands behind them and vice versa. 

Mid- Terms 2020

Mid- terms are a busy time of the year for everyone. For students, the weeks before mid- terms are filled with study guides, cram packets, and late nights spent studying. For teachers, these weeks are filled with reviewing, helping their students bring up their grades, and preparing their students to test on everything they have learned since August. It is unclear whether testing will be different this year, or if we will be able to maintain the same schedule we have used in past years. This year, the school has a whole new challenge thrown at them during mid- term season. Everyone is trying to keep as many students on campus as possible. During the time between Thanksgiving break and midterms, excitement for Christmas is sparked in both teachers and students alike. Although extra precautions must be taken, everyone is trying to hold on to their Christmas spirit and their excitement for break to guide them through these ever-changing times.

Thanksgiving Break

Posted December 3, 2020

 

Written by Leisa Munson

Thanksgiving break is a time all students look forward to. A break from school, especially with the year we’ve had, is what we all need. During Thanksgiving break, us students will be able to not worry about getting school work complete, but we will be able to sit back and spend time with our family and friends. We can spend time with people that mean the most to us, as well as give thanks that we are able to take off of school and see our families. Some students may use the break as a getaway and go on vacation to enjoy their time away from school. It’s important that we all see how important it is to be able to take time off to see our families and friends, without worrying about school or work. It is the biggest blessing to have to be able to sit down and just spend time with your loved ones.

Back to School

The start of the 2020-21 school year came with unforeseen changes and calculated measures to keep students and faculty safe.  With changes to schedules, both daily and weekly, students and teachers are adapting to these changes with patience and practice. 

           

            The change in class size still allows students to learn as if they were in a full classroom.  Virtual classrooms allow for students to stay on track even on their days off and to complete past and current assignments on time.  These adjustments are definitely not the norm, but they allow for life, at school and at home, to coincide as best as possible.  Some students, however, come all five days and others do not come at all.  These choices on how you attend school between full-time or all virtual allows for students and parents to explore options and stay safe.  Online lessons allow teachers to stay in contact with students at all times.  The teachers are working very closely with pupils and fellow teachers to make sure each student is learning the correct material and at the correct pace. 

           

            While this year has come with some unexpected changes, both our diligent teachers and students are learning how to best work together to make this school year a success.
