Spirit Week, According to Jennifer Shin ’17 and Kyra Richardson ‘17, two members of the senior council, this was a chance “to get everyone of all grades to participate” in a school-wide event. The goal was to make each day easy to partake in, learned after the unfortunate “Fancy Friday” of last year, a day where very fewstudents participated. Flannel Friday took its place as “it was easy to participate in and everyone has a flannel; the whole point of the week is to get all grades to join,” Jennifer explained. With the event’s more simplistic nature, it gave more freedom to students so that everyone could join.

Chipotle: Is It Safe?

Recently, hugely popular Mexican fast-food chain Chipotle’s sales reached a dramatic downfall, all due to an outbreak of disease in their food called E. coli. Many consistent buyers of Chipotle’s food have stopped due to the risk of contracting the disease. Several people have sued Chipotle for their sicknesses and the company has lost billions of dollars. Now, however, Chipotle’s E. coli has officially been labeled a past risk; health officials have said that at this point there is no chance of getting the disease from the brand’s burritos and bowls. Sales are steadily increasing once again but not without memory of the recent incident.

Running Club: Activity and Teamwork

A new club this year for running seems to have been a big success among students. Running club encourages students at BSGE to work hard to reach their physical goals and have fun at the same time.

Running club was created by tenth grade student, Kohen Rahman with the help of guidance counselor Tim David Lang and gym teacher Mr. Mac, and the approval of Ms. Johnson. “I started the group because I love to run,” Kohen explained. “It is a form of physical exercise that is so simple, but not many people actually get around to doing it.”

The club has provided students with a chance to get outside and do something they never really had the motivation to do. Its was great experience for anyone who enjoys running, regardless of prior skill level. “It is something that also alleviates stress, which we, as students, get a lot of in BSGE,” said Kohen.
