Hand poster

By: Dylan Stewart

The teacher hand poster project was intended for teachers that are being cut or retiring, and is meant to give the teacher a little memento of all the student and all the thanks they had given them for being there and helping them thru the holes and traps of highschool. We asked student to write kind gestures or memories with that certain teacher. All the teachers on the list include Mrs. Ahrndt, Mrs. Loan, Mrs. Davis, Mrs. Mikkelsen, Beth Buyck the School nurse, Don Bremer, Joan knutson and finally Peggy Bausman.

The teacher hand poster project was created my Teja Hodge and Dylan Stewart for a final in Restorative Justice. We Hope that when the teachers get there posters they will love and cherish them when they are gone, they will all be missed by many and will alway be teachers in are hearts.

POP

By: Julia Kill

BENSON, MN – Benson High School Seniors’ last day of high school was May 16. The seniors decided to pull a prank on the younger classmen. Seniors tied zip ties to each car tire, so when the student will drive they’ll hear a “POP.” The seniors didn’t do it to all cars but to majority.

“I was scared that it would pop my tire so I had Carlos Gondor cut them off for me.” says junior Brianna Schriener.

What will be the prank for next year? Class of 2020, do you have it in mind?

BY: ADDISON DOSCHER

Has it already been a school year? Well, you know what that means! The Chippewa Yearbook Staff is proud to announce that THE YEARBOOK IS HERE! For the past 9 months, the yearbook staff has been hard at work making this book everything you have hoped for. They captured the essence of the school year in a short 100 pages.

The class consisted of 11 students 1st semester and 4 students 2nd semester. With this years book, it was very organic and had a lot of movement and color within. Every water color in the book was handmade by students of last year’s yearbook class. In Living Color is a direct analogy to benson high school, whoever we are, where ever we came from, we each are diverse and different from each other bringing our own “color” to the painting (Benson High School).

ECONOMICS TURNS TO THE AUTOMOBILE

BY: ADDISON DOSCHER

In Mr. Ricard’s first hour College Macroeconomics class, their final was all about automobiles. Mr. Ricard thought it was best to teach the kids in the class how to change a tire, know how to jump start a dead car with jumper cables, and just know some quick facts about cars, and car safety.

The class headed outside to his truck last wednesday and Mr. Ricard showed them everything that any freshman at college should know about their cars. Anna Samuelson, a student in the class said “ It was fun to learn about just some simple things about working a car. I knew some stuff but it was nice to learn more about  jumpstarting a car and changing a tire”.
