Uniforms benefit students

My opinion that we should have school uniforms in school is an unpopular one, and yet when speaking with my cousin I cannot help but notice the beneficial impact that it has had on her education. She doesn’t need to worry about looking good for school, and isn’t distracted by the flashy outfits by her peers.

Nestled in the southwestern corner of Colorado, Durango is a worthwhile and unique combination of both mountain town and college town. “Durango is a great time! It’s warm, usually, and far enough away from Denver to feel like a vacation, and close enough to Denver to make it a weekend getaway. There’s lots to do and see, tons of great food and a really nice atmosphere,” says Celeste Borg ’16.


Star Wars fever spreads

 

The power of the force is strong at Heritage as the new Star Wars episode seven, “The Force Awakens” is coming out to theaters on December 18, 2015. Students at Heritage are excited but somewhat considered about the film. The film has new characters, such as Finn and Rey the new heroes of the story. there is also a new design to the story, new weapons, and new vehicles. What student are most curious to know is who is and what is Darth Kylo Ren and what is his story and why did he create a new Empire called the First Order. A new villain and a new design for the Stormtroopers which some say it gives them a smooth look.

 

The movie is bringing back some of the old characters which students think is just wonderful. Luke Skywalker, Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C3po and R2-D2 are all back. Students are curious on how they aged over the years and they want to know what’s happening now in the Star Wars universe. In the trailer you see some old characters and vehicles that bring a buzz of excitement.star

“I’m not a big Star Wars fan but it seems all I hear is Star Wars this and Star Wars that,” says  Miguel Sedillos ‘17.

“ I am excited for the new Star Wars to come out and if I could describe the trailer in one world it would be’ powerful” however some of the scenes in the thaler did not make any sense.” Says Jonathan Cheng’ 17.

Most of the students are some what in between that the movie will be good others say that it will bad and it won’t make any sense and will ruin the Star Wars trilogy. People around the world will just have to wait until the movie comes out and when that happens only then can fans and people around the world can decide if episode seven will bring back Star Wars to its great and glory or will it bring it down to the dark side.
