Corona-Virus and Grocery Stores Part 1
With the corona-virus growing on the media and spreading locally, panic has grown among citizens. These panics are causing people to quarantine themselves, or worry about what will happen if they were to have to quarantine themselves. Just in case people have to quarantine, they are preparing by buying canned foods, disinfecting wipes, and toilet paper, and stores are having a hard time keeping all of these supplies in stock. The stores are quickly running out of supplies and can make some pretty ridiculous sights. Upload your craziest pictures from the stores to our Google Form below.

There are many valuable skills to be learned when transitioning from the sheltered days of youth into the harsh reality that is the real world. Each skill is valuable in its own way. Budgeting will keep you sheltered, cooking will keep you fed, and taxes will keep you out of prison. There is, however, a life skill that is rarely discussed. That skill is situational awareness and it is the one  that will keep you alive.  By definition situational awareness is the understanding of the factors of one’s environment with
regards to time or space, what the factors mean, and the possible consequences of these factors.
This skill is essential for understanding surroundings and how you need to interact with it in a safe
and thoughtful manner. 
Tips for situational awareness
Predict possible events that can take place based on existing factors in your surroundings
Have faith in your basic instincts
Be aware of the amount of time that has passed

Twice as Nice Prom Dresses by Abbigail Price

Twice as Nice photo by Abbigail Price Twice as Nice is a service organization that sponsors a prom resale program. Used prom dresses are sold to students at a discounted price. Their goal is to supply students with cheap prom dresses, in hopes that more students attend prom. Funds raised go towards Mooresville charities.  “As this is a nonprofit organization, it is really about providing students with the opportunity to attend prom versus raising funds,” Mrs. Jennifer Brunette said. Jennifer Brunette was twice as Nice’s old sponsor. Mrs. Lepore will be taking over this year. Dresses will go on sale Saturday, February 22 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Dresses will cost $20.00. If a student returns the dress after prom, they get a $10.00 voucher for next year’s dress. Any MHS student is eligible to buy a dress.
