CDG Charity Soccer Match Fundraiser

CDG Charity Soccer Match Fundraiser

       By Tony Mejia

        Saturday April 14, 2018 a charity soccer match was held at Hare Field. The game was the senior project of various students, and was made possible by their hard work.

        The purpose of the charity soccer match was to raise money and bring awareness to Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation (CDG). CDG is a group of rare inherited metabolic disorders that affect a complex enzymatic process called glycosylation. Glycosylation is essential for organ development. CDG can be fatal and there is currently no cure, though most variants can be treated.

        Srijay Sharma, one of the seniors who contributed to this event, stated, “We are hoping to do this annually.”

        The students in charge of the event recruited both students and teachers. The recruitment of teachers made this match both interesting and exciting. Fans were excited watching their teachers play and hit the floor.

“The event was great! I saw a lot of players. There was food afterwards and everyone had a great attitude willing to participate,” stated Jose Luis Sanchez Rodriguez. Rodriguez participated in the match.

        The event turned out to be very successful and raised over $500 in donations. All the money was donated to CDG care. The participants were content with the outcome.

        Rodriguez stated, “It was a friendly scrimmage, win or lose everyone had fun. I was content with the game. And it was real! I thought it was a pick up game,”

        The red team beat the blue team, 8 to 3.

Century Forecasting

Century Forecasting

By Tau Tofaeono    

    Forecasting is here and its important that students know what they need to take to graduate. There are quite a few requirements students have to meet to get a standard diploma.

        Students need four credits of English and three credits of math, science, and social science. Additionally students need one credit of physical education and health. Two world language credits and six elective credits are also required.

        Senior year students have to get a half credit from their college and career pathway and half a credit from senior seminar.

        Starting next year the requirements for a chancellor’s diploma have changed. Students need four credits of math instead of three. And instead of seven elective credits, you need five. All other requirements are the same.

        Century also offers off-campus classes such as machine welding at Glencoe, auto tech and mariachi at Hilhi, and fire science at Liberty.

        Online classes are also an option but you will have to fill out a paper.

        Century also offers AP classes. AP classes are college level classes that high schoolers can take. Students can earn college credits if they do well on the exam at the end of the school year.

        Additionally, Century offers a class called AVID. AVID is a class that is dedicated to closing the achievement gap by preparing all students for colleges and post secondary opportunities. The class teaches skills and behaviors for academic success. It provides intensive support  tutorials and strong student/teacher relationships. The class creates a positive peer group for students and it develops a sense of hope for personal achievement gained through hard work and determination.

        Forecasting can also determine what classes are offered the next year. Classes can be added, and deleted.

        Mr. Rogers, a teacher at Century, is concerned that AP Government might not be a class next year. A small number of students forecasted for it, which is unusual.

        Remember you can change your classes up till june. So if you need to get on it.

        And let’s try to have more people forcast for AP government.
