Even though many did not know Chelsea King, she made a huge impact in the lives of teachers, Poway students, and even citizens of Poway and San Diego.

Chelsea’s younger brother, Tyler King, made a documentary about Chelsea’s life. Because of this documentary, so many can now see the King Family’s experience and how they are dealing with Chelsea being gone four years after she was kidnapped in Rancho Bernardo Community Park, raped and murdered.

Tyler was 13 years old when his sister was murdered. He made this documentary to share his personal experience and inspire other kids to use their voices and speak against sexual predators. There was recently a showing on the 23rd of September at the San Diego Film Festival, and the movie will be out to the public in a few weeks after the Academy Awards.

Hot Weather, Dress Codes Go Crazy!


Poway High seems to be having problems with dress codes.

Poway High Students are going crazy with dress codes! Clothes are appropriate for climate, but not for school. Principal Assistants cannot stop sending students to change their clothes. Every day, at least four girls get dress code, and for a 30 minute lunch, that is a lot of students.

However, the boys’ dress code is not as strict as the girls’. It is a rule that seems to be harder for girls because the most common reason for them getting dress codes is that they are showing too much skin, shorts, skirts and dresses are not such a big deal as the tops.

Crunch Time for Fall Play


A Midsummer Night’s Dream actors have less than a month to master and perform in the Poway Center for the Performing Arts. Opening Night is Oct. 2nd in the PCPA, only four weeks after casting was announced.

Drama Director Rollin Swan is certain that the actors will be ready in time; however, it is a great challenge to produce sets and costumes set in the 1920’s for such a large cast. The story revolves around four separate love stories that eventually come together: a mortal king and queen, the actors performing at their wedding, a forest king and fairy queen, and for mortal teenagers. The different groups of characters can all rehearse at the same time, which is more efficient.
