Summer Plans

We've only got a few more weeks left of school, so it's time to start thinking of what you're gonna do over the summer. Will you get a job? Be lazy all summer? Work out with Coach Schilling? Let's take a look at what some of our students are planning to during summer break.

"Working at Long Johns and buying a truck." -Sam Paris

"I'll probably be gaming it the whole time. My handle on PS3 is 'I-rule, U-drool.'" - Seth Vaquero

"I like to mow my lawn 3-4 times a week." - Mr. Ramsey

"I plan to sleep in, lay around, do a few chores, not think about school." - Most Teenagers

Bad Joke of the Week

Why can't dalmatians play hide and seek?

Summer Work

So during the summer, many students take up part-time jobs to make a few bucks so they can get a DQ Royal Blizzard and the newest Doom game. But not all jobs are equal. According to, these are the worst:

  • Sunburn model
  • Butterfly poisoner
  • The person working at an ice rink...just in case somebody in the summer wants to go ice skating.
  • Part owner of a roadside beef stew kiosk
  • Door-to-Door corn shucker
  • Running lawnmower clog removal specialist
