Friday Night Lights
Posted September 3, 2019
Written by Cayden Barr
Friday Night Lights--the anticipation is high and its just about to begin. School ends and everyone is getting ready to get in their cars and head to the football stadium for anything but a typical Friday night. This Friday night is the start of the season and everyone will be there. Season tickets, pay at the gate, it does not matter, the town of Watson is here and ready for a football season to remember. Students and parents all parked for miles; it is almost time for kickoff and there is not an empty seat in sight. The music is loud; fans cheering and the teams running onto the field and it is so loud you cannot even hear yourself speak. The Live Oak High student section with confetti flying and baby powder coating the stands. The time is here and everyone is ready. It is Friday Night Lights!

Everyone of Live Oak High's students were nervous for the first day of the 2019 school year. With the freshmen's first high school experience, the sophomore's feeling of finally not being the newbies, the junior's nervousness about this being the hardest year of their lives, and the senior's feeling of being on the edge of freedom--everyone could feel the energy radiating as soon as the doors opened. The teachers explained their classes as the students patiently awaited the sound of the next bell ringing. The staff and students buzzed around the hallways while the songs played over the intercom warning the students to get to class. The lunchroom was filled with anxious faces, and the students discussed each of their classes. Toward the end of the day, everyone's nerves started to settle as the students saw that the year is going to be a memorable one. At 2:15, the impatient bodies jumped out of their seats, and they all went home to prepare for another day.

The Drop '19

Everyone was excited to attend the Drop this year. It is everyone’s favorite dance of the school year. There was a buzz in the air as kids figured out the times to meet up, times to eat, and what time to leave. The freshman, having never been to the Drop, were ready for school day to end so they could get ready for a new experience. Seniors used their cars to pick up makeup, paint, and cute clothes to wear. It would be the last first Drop of the school year for them. They hang out at their friends’ houses, having a good time without a care in the world. Finally, it is time to leave. Music blares out of cars as everyone pulls up to the high school. Kids dressed up in glow in dark clothes and run up to the school, money and IDs in hand. The music from inside the building can be heard all the way outside. Most people stay for at least an hour before heading to their friends’ houses to spend the night or going out to a random restaurant that is still open that late. It is always a good time for anyone and everyone who attends.
Year of the Pig

School has officially started and summer has come to an end. Although we are all studying hard already and getting ready to get in gear and hop into this new school year, we cannot forget about the summer memories and trips! Live Oak High School was able to bring some students and administration to China this past summer. Talk about a day and night difference! We all know by now that China is known for many things and beautiful places to visit and stay. As Jane Dalberg, a student that got to go on this amazing trip, has stated, "It was pretty whack, but really cool. My favorite place had to be Shanghai, especially Canal City which to get a good picture of it, would be thinking of the canals in Venice, Italy." Jane also said how they saw a lot of watermelons, but something to note is that fruit is like their dessert, instead of sweets. It's safe to say that there was enough to go around! We even had some teachers visit this beautiful place. Coach Morris was able to tell me some of what they did. "We were able to go to a middle school, and the students gave us gifts and we, of course, gave gifts to them. Seeing The Great Wall was amazing, but, you were climbing it almost the entire time because the steps were so tall. The people there were very nice and amazing as well. As I mentioned before, it had to of been a day and night difference going across the pond, and of course it was! Coach Morris was able to explain how when they first got there, it was an easy adjustment, but leaving was most definitely a challenge. Coach Morris says, "Jet lag is real!" And we can agree with that.
Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week has just concluded, and the participation was incredible! So many of the students dressed for the themes and proved our drug-free school true. Monday, students were PROUD to be drug-free in their red, white, and blue clothing. Tuesday, students were glowing, showing they were too bright to do drugs! Wednesday, Live Oak “slept on drugs” by wearing their pajamas with a Live Oak shirt. Thursday was Halloween, and many students wore their costumes to show how SCARY drugs are. Live Oak students wore their superhero shirts to show their strength to be drug-free to finish off the fun-filled week. It was an amazing turnout. There are 63,362 overdoses from drugs every year, and the school sends a great message of living drug-free to all of its students.
Talented Theatre's Haunted House

Live Oak High School’s Talented Theatre program hosted the Haunted Asylum on October 31, 2019. During lunch, the students flooded through the doors to be scared backstage. With assistance from the talented art students, the makeup and bloody effects were a huge success. The students walked through the passageways looking left and right, preparing themselves for another scare. No one knew what was lurking around the corner…
The Renaissance Festival
Posted November 15, 2019
Written by Cayden Barr
The Renaissance Festival is an educational field trip taken by English IV classes once a year. The Renaissance festival is a fair that takes place every year near Hammond, in a location that resembles and English village in the 1500’s. The festival has different references to the past such as the food court, in the food court there are different “restaurants” that serve foods from the 1500’s. There are hundreds of workers that put on shows, work at restaurants, operate rides, and give facts about the time period to give a real feel to the festival. The renaissance festival hosted events such as jousting, in jousting you are given a wooden sword and battle against a “soldier” best 2 out of 3. There are lots of booths where you can pay to do things such as throw axes, shoot bow and arrow, shoot crossbows, and blow darts for anywhere between 3 to 15 dollars. To attend the festival, it is a small price of $20 to go, and it is a great experience overall. If you like history and learning about the past the renaissance festival is the field trip for you.
