Situational Awareness by Noah Justice

Situational Awareness photo by Noah Justice  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

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 c harities.  “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 r eturns the dress after prom, they get a $10.00 voucher for next year’s dress. Any MHS student is eligible to buy a dress.
