The Week in Photos: Aug. 26-Sept. 1

A look at events and activities this past week.
Reagan Kerstiens ‘24 works with Ella Bendle ‘24 to brainstorm school spirit events at the inaugural Continental League Fall Super Summit at Chaparral High School Aug. 26. The summit ran from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and consisted of free breakfast, three 40-minute morning sessions, lunches from truck lunches and a final fourth session for each school to discuss what they learned that day. Over 55 Jaguars attended. “We went around listening to different speakers or student-led discussions. The first one talked about advertising and how schools have different strengths. Then, I went to a business panel with a few speakers, most of them in the construction industry, talking about the struggles of running your own business and the importance of networking. There was also a speaker, he was ex-military, telling us some of the important characteristics of leaders,” Kerstiens said. “I think [the summit] was a good opportunity, I’m glad I got to learn some new things.” Reporting by: Claire Bauer (media by Claire Bauer)
Kendall Maurer ‘25 and Jacob Harris ‘25 perform an experiment in Destiny Barreras’s first period Chemistry Aug. 28. Students did a total of eight experiments during class to learn about the difference between physical and chemical changes. Maurer used forceps to hold a ribbon of magnesium over a lit Bunsen burner to light it on fire. “This lab was a lot of fun to do because I’ve never used a Bunsen burner before, which is really cool. We are doing all this work to help us understand what physical and chemical changes are,” Harris said.

Lily Hutz ‘25 prepares to measure ten milliliters of silver nitrate during AP Chemistry Aug. 28. The lab was completed by AP Chemistry students to teach them more about how to solve unknown compounds. “I liked filtering [the unknown compound]. But, the hardest thing was being super accurate with measuring,” Hutz said. Reporting by: Sanaa Sow (media by Sanaa Sow)
Shreya Behera ’25 walks out of the building during the fire drill Aug. 28. The drill took place at the beginning of fourth period and was the first fire drill of the school year. The school is required to have a fire drill at least once every month. “I think the new fire drill [alarm] is less disorienting, making it easier for students to get to a safe lockdown position without causing too much chaos,” Behera said.

A blue super moon glows in the sky in Castle Pines Aug. 30. According to NASA, this was the last time a blue super moon will appear until 2037. “I woke up at 3:00 a.m. last night to see the moon. It was shining in my face, and I’m like, ‘why is it so bright?’ And it was white, not blue,” Tristan Lladó ’26 said. Reporting by: guest reporter Shea Thompson (media by guest reporter Shea Thompson)

Kyle Walsh ‘25 multitasks between homework and watching the game at the varsity football game against Smoky Hill High School at Echo Park Stadium Aug. 31. Walsh worked on notes for AP Environmental Science (APES). “In general, I have lots of homework in all of my classes, so I put off my APES notes because they are easier to do when I have spare time,” Walsh said. “Tonight, I didn’t have spare time to do my notes since I was going to the game, so I did them here.” Reporting by Ella Heimer (media by Ella Heimer)
