The first Wylie Way Day of the school year was Sept. 12. Wylie Way is a movement in schools that is research-based and designed to set students on the path to achievement in every area of their lives. Building the foundation on relationships, strengths and interests, plan and purpose and core ethical values. The theme for Wylie Way this year is Level Up. The September day was Game Day. Students played short carnival-like games to grow as a team rather than as an individuals. For more Wylie Way Day coverage, check out the hashtag on Twitter: #gameonwisd. The Wylie Way Day follow up is Oct. 3.

If you’ve ever stopped and questioned your own intelligence, you’re probably fine. Truly stupid people don’t have that awareness. Hey! My name is Zoe, and I enjoy reading weird sentences like that one. Here is another: The title of “oldest person alive” is a relatively permanent one. Once you earn it, you get to keep it for the rest of your life. Anyways, this is my third year as a staff reporter for Newspaper. My love for writing started with a character named Doorkadoo; a kid who was given that nickname because everyone forgot what his first name was. I created his story and now I wish to create more. Besides writing, I love music. I play marimba for The Pride of the East. This is my fourth year performing for the school’s marching band. During freshman year, my plan was to major in creative writing then become an author. As a senior, I plan to major in English then become a teacher. I never thought my career choice would change. Besides band and newspaper, I do nothing. So my boring bio is over. You’re welcome internet.

    This Wylie Way day was way better than the previous one, the focus was more on the content rather than writing in packets all day.
