Clarification: 2015 Prom for Juniors and Seniors

The first paragraph of the story "PROMising Future" on page 4 of Issue 8 was misleading. The sentence should read "For current Sophomores next year will be the first year they may attend Prom because they will be upperclassmen." The 2015 Prom will be for juniors and seniors as usual. We appoligize for the confusion.

Lent Update: Week One

Senior Jackie Farrand has given up drinking soda and shopping for herself for lent. 
“This week has been a little tough because I’ve been very tempted to drink just a little cup of Coke, but I talked myself out of it,” Farrand said.
  “I think the hardest part [this week] was when my mom would buy a couple of two liters of Coke and they would just be sitting there on counter. It was really tempting not to drink some,” Farrand said.
  With all of these temptations though, she has stayed true to lent. 
“I’m gonna be honest, it sucks, but I think that’s the point of lent, to give up something that is really hard to give up,” Farrand said.
Stay tuned for an update on Jackie Farrand’s progress on lent.

Things To Do While Staying Home on Spring Break

by: Shelby Parsons
  While it seems like everyone is going somewhere for Spring Break, there are many people staying home. Sophomore Hanah Smith plans on doing absolutely nothing during Spring Break.
  Staying home doesn’t necessarily mean not leaving your house. During her Spring Break, sophomore Ashley Hobson plans on going fishing.
  It’s not just the students staying home, even English teacher Mrs. Patel is staying home.
  “I plan on spending time with my kids and hopefully cleaning my house,” said Patel.
  As some plans for other people, Hobson said just to sleep. Smith simply said to go outside.
  “Spend time with someone you love. See a good movie or read a good book. You could even go get a pedicure,” said Patel.
  So during Spring Break, some things to do are: go fishing, spend time with family, see a movie, sleep, get a pedicure, go shopping, clean, read a book, go for a walk in the park, or just don’t do anything.

MHS' Lent Traditions

  Lent started on March 5 this year and will end on April 19.
  Lent is a Catholic religious observation where you are supposed to give up something for six weeks before Easter. Even though it is considered a religious tradition, plenty of non-religious people do it.  Even if they don’t practice for religious purposes they do it for fun, “It’s more for the willpower aspect of it,” senior Jackie Farrand said.
  Jackie Farrand has given up any kind of soda and shopping for herself. This is Farrand’s fourth year participating in lent. “Normally I give up pop for moral support for my best friend, but this year I added on shopping for myself,” Farrand said.
  Forty days is a long time to give up something that you have been so used to doing, some usually give in to their habits and break their fasting. But Jackie Farrand has stayed true to lent.
  “The first thing I’ll do after lent is to go to Burger King and get a Peach Sprite,” Farrand said.
  Stay tuned for a weekly update on Jackie Farrand’s status on keeping with her Lent.

High School Drama

by Brett Hoffman  
The MHS Drama Department’s annual spring play premiered on Thursday March 13.
  The play, Varney the Vampire, featured a cast of Mooresville students from various classes. The play told the tale of Varney, portrayed by junior Quinn Cavin, who seeks to end his eternal suffering after the loss of his beloved Amelia, portrayed by junior Olivia Seyerle.
“We had a really fun cast,” Cavin said. “The actors all played their parts brilliantly and the play was an overall success.”
  Along the way, Varney forgets his mission after falling in love with Flora, portrayed by junior Hannah Shelton. Under Varney’s influence Flora begins to wish to become a vampire herself, and its up to her fiance Richard, portrayed by junior Austin Webster, and two of Italy’s finest police inspectors, portrayed by senior Josh Passey and sophomore Brenden Rolland, to slay the vampire and save Flora.
  “I enjoyed being someone else while still being myself,” sophomore Emma Kivett said.
  “I had an amazing group of actors this year,” director Melaney Kassen said. “The play went so well and I’m so excited for next year’s play.”

Its Hunting Season

 by Kyrstin Coomes
Over the last month, Flappy Bird has taken over the lives of many teenagers.
“It sucks, I hate it and I’ll never play it again,” sophomore Breanna Bates said.
Friends were suggesting it to friends, and those friends were suggesting it to their own. It was a frenzy that everyone felt the need to partake in.
Recently though, the app was taken off of the market. The developer of the game took it down, stating that he couldn’t take it anymore.
“Anyone with half a brain knows you can get it back from the internet within 15 seconds,” senior Ron Stapert said.
Flappy Bird is so frustrating that people were actually destroying their phones over a high score. They were even suing the developer because they broke their phone, blaming him of their act.
“It drove me insane. I wanted to throw my phone,” Guidance Counselor Ericka Gayle said.
Now that the app is down, many people have created knockoffs in order to get money. With Flappy Bird gone, people are left with no choice but to download them.
“Just one word. Terrible,” Junior Lauren Campbell.

Friday, February 28, 2014


Thursday, February 20, for most MHS students was a normal school day, but for a select group of students it was the start of an unforgettable experience.
Fourteen members of Junior State of America attended the Texas and Mid-Atlantic Winter Congress in Washington D.C. 
 Their day had an early start with the departure from the high school at 4:15 a.m. and arrival to the airport around 4:30-4:45 a.m. Once the group made it through security they sat in a large group playing Cards Against Humanity waiting to board their 6:40 a.m. flight.
“The flight this year was better [than the 14 hour bus ride last year] because we weren’t as exhausted as the previous year. We were more prepared for the Gilly Death March. It was also nice to know exactly what time we would arrive and could plan accordingly, plus flying is fun,” junior Blake Ross said.
Once in D.C. it was go, go, go. They took the metro to the hotel they’d be staying at dropped of their luggage and suitcases. The members then travelled to Pentagon City Mall to eat in the food court and from there the Gilly Death March began.
The group set a record in mileage in one day for Ms. Gilly, walking around 22 miles in 12 consecutive hours. They started at Arlington Cemetery and working their way through DC seeing as many sights that could be seen.
On the first day the students walked through Arlington Cemetery seeing the eternal flame, The Arlington House, the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the changing of the guard.  From Arlington they made their way across the bridge to the WWII memorial, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial and the Jefferson Memorial.

"My favorite monument was the FDR Monument because it was really big and it told the story of his presidency," senior Molly Tieman said.

From there they went for lunch at the Ronald Reagan Mall and made their way back to the hotel to prepare for the night tour.
“[It was] astounding to get to look at American history in person and see the iconic images we only see in pictures usually. The best part [of the trip] was the Gilly tour,” senior Cody Rusher
On the night tour they saw Iwo Jima, the Vietnam War Memorial, and the historic Lincoln Memorial.
“[My favorite memory from the trip] was the night tour. It was really neat to see everything without the crowds and all the lights at night,” junior Danielle Quinlin said.
The second day was another tour day for the morning and afternoon half, although they didn’t walk as many miles, the sights seen that day made up for it. The students traveled with Ms. Joyce Gilly and Miss Karen Cochran to inner DC to see some of the buildings.
The second day of touring allowed the students to enter the Supreme Courthouse, the National Archives where one of the copies of the Declaration of Independence is held, and the Library of Congress. They also took a tour of the U.S. Capitol Building and then made their way to the Smithsonian’s. Some students went to the Holocaust Museum while others went to the Air and Space Museum or the National Museum of American History.
After a day of touring the students headed back to the hotel to prepare to attend the JSA Winter Congress opening ceremonies. The student-run ceremony had several speakers informing the students of the activities and scheduled events for the weekend, then the key note speaker for the evening went and spoke.
Once opening ceremonies were over the students went upstairs and relaxed as a group. Some sat in the hallway as a group and enjoyed conversation while others went to the red, white and blue themed dance was held.
"The dance was full of people in American gear, it was very patriotic,” senior Jesse Cordray said.
The next morning started the committee hearings. The students were divided into either the House or the Senate to debate on bills written by the students. There were over 111 bills total that were discussed that weekend. With topics ranging from labelling genetically modified foods to censoring male nipples on television.
"My favorite bill we discussed was censoring of male nipples. I am glad it failed because I never wear a shirt," Cordray said.
The students followed the traditional debate procedure and parliamentary motions during the two-day committee hearings. There were pro and con speeches that lasted six minutes and then subsequent speeches lasted three minutes, closing speeches were three minutes as well.
“I really enjoyed the debates, and hearing what peoples’ opinions on everything were. but my favorite bill was the one on lifting the ban on gay men giving blood. I thought it what the pro debaters had said was interesting and [I] fully agree with the bill to lift the ban,” freshman Renee Majeski said.
For some students this was their first Winter Congress experience, and others it was their last.
"My first Winter Congress, [as well as] my last, was an amazing experience. The people in my Senate literally knew every bill that came up; I learned so much. It's really a must for anyone interested in JSA. Altogether it was an eye-opening experience," senior Morgan Sussman said.
After the committee meetings were over the group skipped the closing ceremonies to go to the mall for a couple hours to relax before the flight home.
“[My last Winter Congress] was bittersweet. I love going to DC and touring then participating in the conference but I will miss the experience greatly. This trip was so much fun and our chapter became closer that’s the best part of the whole trip,” senior Michelle Majeski said.
This experience brought the group closer together and friendships were made.
“I made so many new, close relationships with the group that went, it was a fantastic last DC trip,” senior Jackie Farrand said.
Whether it was the first or last, his trip became a life changing experience for many.

“[The trip was] a fantastic experience all around. This group of students were amazing, They watched out for each other, they were always on time, and they were a positive representation of our school and community.  Also, not spending 26 hours on a bus was WONDERFUL!!!” Gilly said.

Accuplacer Apperhension: Juniors and Sophomores to Take the Accuplacer Test in March

 by Brett Hoffman
Starting this year, sophomores and juniors will be required to take an accuplacer test to assess their readiness for college.
  Most accuplacer tests are used by colleges to determine whether a student will get into a certain class. The accuplacer test take by MHS students however will give a diagnosis on how prepared a student is for college and ACTs/SATs.
   Juniors who have a PSAT score lower than 46 and sophomores with a score lower than 42 will be required to take the test. Also, students in either grade who have failed an ECA multiple times will be required to take the accuplacer.
   The accuplacer is now required by Indiana law to be issued to juniors and sophomores. The test will be taken between the last week of February and the first week of March.
  Juniors will test during their English classes and sophomores will test during their history classes. Each test is 40 questions long and is untimed.
  “We are excited for the data these tests will provide and how it will help us to meet the needs of our students,” Mr. Disney said.

Spotlighter Invitational

 by Jade Broer
The Spotlighter Invitational is back again.
  The Spotlighter Invitational has been around since 1993 and was started by director Elaine Moebius as well as the 1993 Spotlighters. It’s the day where Mooresville’s Spotlighters host their own competition.
   Each year the Spotlighters have their own competition for their invitation, to decorate the best room they can. they compete with Finesse and Madrigals for the best room. In total there are 24 rooms to decorate. Each room has a group of students assigned to it where they get to decide how to decorate it. at around 10:30 p.m. on Friday, Mr. Jason Damron will judge the rooms and pick the best two. Those winners will get taken out to dinner with Mr. Damron.
  “It’s really cool for our students to be a part of it [the Spotlighter Invitational]. It’s good for other schools to see how we do things and even community members to see what kind of event we can host. It makes a good impression on the community and other schools. It’s also a fundraiser that helps to cover costs for our competitions,” Choir Director Jason Damron said.
  “It’s a fairly large competition and its fun to cheer on other teams,” Spotlighters and Madrigals President Zach Hall said. With 24 choirs performing, it is a big competition.
  The Invitational lasts all day. Schools get here around 7 a.m. and begin performing around 8:15 a.m. The last performance is by the Spotlighters at 11:15 p.m. which leaves awards to start at 11:45 p.m.
  The people who do not want to stay at a competition all day to wait and see Mooresville’s choirs have a chance to just the MHS choirs the night before, Friday, February 21. This night is called Community Night.
  Community Night was created about five years ago. “It’s just an opportunity for people who want to see Mooresville together instead of at a competition. It’s a good chance for the community to see everything we do and it helps with the costs of the invitational,” Damron said.
It’s also in a different setting than usual. “It’s a big setting because we perform in the gym instead of the auditorium,” Spotlighters and Madrigals President Jackie Harris said.
   Community Night starts at 7 p.m. on Friday, February 21, with a five dollar admission.

   The Spotlighter invitational is an all day event with two sessions. Each session has a ten dollars or you can get an all day pass for fifteen dollars.

Vanishing Vending Machines: Are MHS's Vending Machines Here to Stay?

by Jade Broer and Michele Kidd
  Rumors have been going around lately that the vending machines are being taken out. They were completely bare without any snacks. But there was a reason as to why they were bare.
  The company that stocks the vending machines, Canteen, took over a new company and have been basically starting from scratch. The people who originally filled MHS’ vending machines have been replaced, making the normal routes delayed.
  So there is no need to worry about the vending machines disappearing, they’re here to stay. But they are only for use at lunch.
  “The vending machines are only supposed to be used at lunch time,” Mrs. Dawn Blake said.

Meet the New Superintendent

by Brett Hoffman
The MHS Pulse staff recently had the privilege to sit down and talk with Mooresville School Corporation’s new superintendent, Mr. David Marcotte.
Marcotte has been involved with multiple school systems throughout his career.
“I love being in education and I’m very passionate about it,” Marcotte said.
Marcotte started his career in the school system as the band director for Decatur Central. From there he obtained principal jobs at both Danville and Ben Davis schools.
Before coming to Mooreville, Marcotte was the Chief Personnel Officer for Wayne Township Schools.
“With Mooresville, there is a connected community,” Marcotte said. “There’s a nice town feeling and a strong community connection not found in Marion County, and I like that.”
When Marcotte saw the listing for a position as Superintendent at Mooresville, he was instantly interested.
“Mooresville was exactly what I was looking for,” Marcotte said.
Marcotte is very excited to get to know the community and get a feel for the schools in the Mooresville district.
“Mooresville is a great school system, and I’m excited to help make it even better,” Marcotte said.
