“I’m as clean as a clean person!”

On November 14th, 2017, students will be starting a waste management project, this being similar to the highly unpopular drought and transportation project from previous years. This time around there is an entire week dedicated to working solely on this project, as teachers in the past have tried to get around doing it.

This Week’s Bell Schedule:
7:50 AM to 9:30 AM – Waste Management Project in 4th Period Class
9:30 AM to 9:40 AM – Nutrition
9:40 AM to 10:24 AM – 1st Period
10:30 AM to 11:14 AM – 2nd Period
11:20 AM to 12:03 PM – 3rd Period
12:03 PM to 12:33 PM – MS Lunch
12:09 PM to 12:52 PM – 4th A
12:39 PM to 1:22 PM – 4th B
12:52 PM to 1:22 PM – HS Lunch
1:28 PM to 2:11 PM – 5th Period
2:17 PM to 3:00 PM – 6th Period

The schedule for the waste management project is as follows. On Monday there is going to be a video kickoff in your English class. Tuesday is a research day as students are going to be doing a research innovation block. Wednesday will be followed by a writing innovation block. Students will use the previous research information to complete their writing assignment. On Thursday all students are to start preparing their presentation. For Friday students are to introduce their presentation in a professional manner. Formal wear is required.

We asked some students their thoughts on the project, with the first two being surprisingly positive.

“I think it’s good that we are doing something good to clean up the waste we have,” said Terrence Tezino, a junior.

“I think its a huge deal to actually have all the students working on it,” says local senior Moses Salinas. “We need to do something about all the trash that is not being disposed.”

However, our third interview with an anonymous student was much more negative. They stated that we should be doing something about bigger problems, such as working on the bathrooms before they focus on waste management.

To be honest, a good chunk of students would probably agree. Many believe that getting students’s ideas on how to fix California is an ineffective way to deal with the problem and it just wastes the time of students. Back during the drought project there were a number of students who refused to do the assignments as an act of rebellion. Whenever the projects are brought up in casual conversations they are nearly always mocked and met with heavy derision.

Some teachers share a similar view, annoyed that the projects are interrupting their regular teaching schedule. One asked who came up with this idea, though students can only reply with their own theories and rumors. We asked around and apparently, it was Dr. Mark Anderson’s idea.
