“With my daughter right now, I’m reading her Calvin and Hobbes — the whole series — so we’re having a good time with that, she likes that a lot… I take her at least twice a year to comic book conventions. And she’s bored, when she goes. My hopes is that in time, she’ll get exposed to it. She went through the rebellious phase where she didn’t like superheros, but when pressed, she will watch Justice League with me. I would like her to at least know a lot about comic books, if not enjoy them,” Dean of Students Max Delgado said.

“When I was teaching in San Francisco, one of my students who was not passing my class - a kid named Miguel - came up to me one time, and he wanted to give me a letter. And the letter thanked me for not giving him a passing grade, because he for the first time took it seriously that he needed to work hard. So we’re talking about what he could do to improve, and we just had one of these sort of random conversations, and he said ‘what do you do when you’re not here?’ and I said ‘well I build boats, and I bind books, and occasionally I make beer.’ He goes, ‘oh, you make beer? My dad does that sometimes, cool.’ And he begins talking about his favorite beer. Now, this is a junior, and he’s not old enough to drink beer. So I’m in a classroom after school, having a conversation with an underage kid about his favorite beer, explaining why while he should not be drinking any beer, the beer he has chosen is probably not worth it,

“One time, I really had to fart. But we were in the middle of a test, and the room was completely quiet. So I’m asking [myself], ‘what do I do?’ and I decided - I had a really gigantic textbook next to me - and I decided that if I dropped the textbook at the same time that I farted, no one would hear me. My timing was off,” junior Emily Schoonover said.

“Being forever alone [is my greatest fear]. It’s a terrible fear, I know. If I was stuck in a room full of butterflies, that wouldn’t work out too well either. I’m extremely afraid of butterflies,” freshman Gabby Harmoning said.

“My proudest moment would probably be 8th grade Quiz Bowl Nationals when our team placed 7th in middle school nationals… we had been doing it [Quiz Bowl] since 6th grade and I knew that after that year, I would be switching schools. It was kind of a send off for me and the rest of the team, because a lot of us were leaving. It was our crowning achievement before we all went our separate ways,” junior Cole Staples.

“My greatest fear is losing people that I love, and also my dreams. My dreams freak me out sometimes, because they really penetrate the things that make me nervous, and when I wake up… I don’t want to go back to sleep,” freshman Isa Saaverda-Weis.
