It is the nonchalant attitude seniors develop towards academics during their last year in high school. Symptoms include the visible decrease in motivation, procrastination, lack of attention, and slacking off. The terrible illness that effects many seniors and causes teachers to tremble is commonly known as Senioritis. Senioritis has become a rite of passage for every high school senior. Most seniors experience senioritis commencing homecoming week and continuing until graduation. As senior, Christina Haddock states, "Senioritis happens to all of us! " From over achievers, to struggling students, Senioritis does not discriminate. Any and all seniors are vulnerable to it. Senioritis stems from the fact that most seniors have finished their college applications, are receiving acceptance letters, and the reality that The Iliad and Ideal Gas laws are irrelevant to most seniors after high school. Senior year is defined as the last opportunity to bond and create unforgettable memories with your fellow classmates. Therefore, it is not surprising that a student can easily forget about schoolwork and instead spend time with friends they will most likely never see again. Senioritis can be, but rarely is, harmful to a student's grade point average, and in extreme The Spats WHEN 15 YOOR |5 , *r... "/i by Aracely Abarca cases, colleges or universities will withdraw their offers of admissions. Senioritis does pose a realistic threat though. Due to students decrease in motivation and performance, they can find themselves having difficulty in making the transition from high school to college. Seniorities can also affect an individual's readiness for college. By taking rigorous and challenging courses senior year, students increase their preparation to colleges. By choosing to coast by, a student could be harming their preparation for college. Recently many high schools have begun adapting organizations or programs that help seniors stay focused and motivated. Programs such as Senior Semester, have been met with resistance on behalf of seniors. Most seniors believe senior year should be a time to have a good time. Studying for an exam or going to class is replaced with hanging out with friends and other activities. Seniors become impatient with school work and begin to question the purpose of everything academically. It seems as if second semester can not go by fast enough and seniors restlessly begin counting down the days until at last they will be free. Most view this easygoing attitude, as a break or reward for enduring the past four long and difficult years of high school. After all the hard work and struggles, there is finally time to stop and smell the roses. Senioritis provides the moments to relax before embarking on the unknown journey to college. by Jeff Pickering J II . .-v I love quotations because it is a joy tofind thoughts one might have beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself. -- Marlene Dietrich Spencer Valley Students Experience The Ancient Art Of Brush Painting by Lance Moles, Spencer Valley School Teacher and grinding stone, cup of water, spoon, and paper; all laid out on a felt-covered table." She reinforced the uniqueness of the brush-painting project by explaining that each brush has a harder inner core surrounded by softer bristles. "That's why you would never squish the tip hard -- you want it to dance across the paper; the inner core is the strength." Treger borrowed the materials from her teacher, Rosemary KimBal, of Dancing Brush Studio (dancingbrush. com). Art class painting is hothing new to Spencer Valley students, most of whom have had opportunities to work in watercolor, oil pastels, and line drawing. However, the art of Chinese brush painting was something new, and all were (left) Spencer Valley School student working in the classroom on their "Brush Painting" (below) The class proudly displays their work for the camera. pleased with the results. Ms. Treger brought several example paintings for students to work with: pandas, a cat, orchids, bamboo, plus many of her own art and Chinese calligraphy books. Several students swirled cat shapes on their paper, others modeled works after flower examples, but many more chose their own unique designs. A few of the boys gravitated to Chinese character writing, carefully dipping the tips of brushes into their ink stones to create words vertically and right to left. Students adapted well to this new technique. 'Tm learning Chinese," said one third grader. They were completely involved in the project, from grinding of their own ink to choosing one of their pictures to frame. "Begin by taking a deep breath, then let it out," artist and educator, Lynda Treger told Spencer Valley's Ritchie Hall students - seventeen third through seventh graders. "Hold the brush like this," said Treger, holding up a Chinese art brush vertically between thumb and finger. She went on to demonstrate the ancient techniques of brush painting. Students made lines, dots, and swirls to get the 'feel' of lightly pressing and moving ink onto paper. "It's important to have the right materials," said Treger. "You could tell that the students could sense that this was going to be interesting when they walked into the art room and saw each place set with an individual brush, brush holder, ink stick,
