Holtville High School students all around were devastated by the news of the earthquake that happened in Haiti. Everybody wanted to do something to help out in any way. Wanted to make a difference to those whom were affected by the tragic earthquake.
Then  senior ASB officers, Crystal Arias and Maritza Rios, came up with the idea of donating money to Haiti. After getting it approved by the ASB, a collection envelope was set up in the senior English classroom. After the other ASB officers heard about this great cause that the seniors started, the freshman, sophomore and junior officer decided that they all wanted to help out as well. They all sent out activity requests to the ASB and they all got approved as well. So collection envelopes are now put up in every English classroom in the school.  This way students may donate one dollar to the cause and all students could participate in this great donation. Officers figured that if every student donated at least one dollar the school could raise a little over 600 dollars. Which may not seem like a lot but it still shows that the students care. Students are not restricted to just donating one dollar, if they choose they may donate as much as they would like to. The senior English teacher, Miss Andara MacDonald, said that she would match every dollar that the seniors raised. Which would be great to the cause and it would raise about a 140 dollars more. All officers hope that the students at Holtville High School are able to help out and donate what they can to these poor people that got hit but such a devastating earthquake a couple of weeks ago. Holtville High School hopes to raise enough money to make people happy and make people a little bit safer and healthier in Haiti.

As the year is coming near to a close, it is time for students, seniors and juniors to start thinking more about college. Even though most seniors already got most of their college plans planned out, others still do not. The ones who have college applications in and know what they want to do , still do not know anything about how they are going to  financially.
For the juniors it has come time for them to start looking and thinking hard about college. Knowing how to get there and what they are going to do there. That is why Tuesday January 26th, the High School invited a motivational speaker named John, to come and talk to the juniors and the seniors. He talked to the juniors about them preparing themselves for what was coming and how to get to college. Steps to get the best they could. Telling them that grades were not everything, that it is important to be a well rounded person. For the seniors John told them that college was something that was not as simple that we planned. Telling them that college life was like a treadmill. They had to balance cost of living, cost of schooling and cost of fun. He also explained that it would be easier to get along with people if they communicated well and got to meet people in the real world. John handed out work books so the students could fill in certain important facts they needed to know. After he finished with his speaking he had all the students tear out the back of their work books and fill it out. To make a game out of it, after all the students turned them in he pulled out about 5 names and those students received special prizes like magnets about college. Having the motivational speaker attend Holtville High School opened the eyes to many more students about college and college life.
