Life in High School by Journi Romstad, Winner of Life in High School Writing Contest

Life in High School by Journi Romstad, Winner of Life in High School Writing Contest

High School, nothing like the movies. Nobody gets up on the tables and sings, there's no group of "big bad girls," and in the end, the unpopular girl doesn't always get the guy. They teach us a lot in high school, most of it we don't listen to. But it's where you make all your memories. I believe high school is where you set the path for you future. What you learn shapes who you are, and who your going to be. 

 

Memories. Most of the memories you make in high school stick with you for life. So why not make them good ones? 

 

Challenges. You will face many challenges during these four years. Some could be drugs, relationships, grades, peer pressure, or bullying.

Local Bands Make it Personal During AMGEN Event

2011 AMGEN bicycle race will pass through Auburn Tuesday, May 17. As 20,000 people are expected to attend, local musicians have decided to offer free music to the crowds AND serve a good cause at the same time.

Two of Auburn's own bands...the musical time-machine; AWESOME 80s BOOMBOX and the Blues-infused FOX TROT MARY performing at the Big O / Elite Auto parking lot in Downtown Auburn at 11 am. These two bands are local favorites and feature graduates from the Placer High School music programs who have gone on the become Teachers, CPA's, Attorneys, and CEO's of local businesses. The bands will be performing to raise awareness about the situation facing Placer High School's ever-decreasing music program budget.

Christopher Crites; (who performs in-character as "Blakky Faux" in the 80's themed band) says, "We are NOT the two bands Auburn hired to perform for the AMGEN tour. This is much more personal to us.
