The Week in Photos: Nov. 25-Dec. 1

This week’s collection of academics, activities and athletics, through photos.
Chinese National Honor Society (CNHS) Co-President Annie Gao ‘24 uses a paintbrush and colored water from a calligraphy kit to paint Chinese characters onto a sheet during a CNHS activity after school Nov. 27. Each month, CNHS hosts a meeting that features a lesson on the language, culture and more, followed by an activity relating to that lesson. “I think [calligraphy] is a really cool art form, like especially in more traditional Chinese art you see a lot of calligraphy, so it’s just kinda cool to connect back with our cultural roots,” Gao said.

Josh Song ‘25 and Science teacher Cydney Tinsley prepare “Stop Bleeding Kits” during Access Nov. 28. Tinsley received an Rock Canyon Community Alliance (RCCA) grant, allowing her to purchase these supplies which included three units of compressed gauze, two tourniquets, one utility shear, one pair of gloves, one marker, one vented chest seal and one space blanket to help in any incidents of trauma bleeding. Tinsley’s overall goal is to put two kits in every pod and get all of the faculty to train in dealing with traumatic bleeding, one day making these kits accessible in every classroom. “It’s actually kind of cool, that through parent funding we got this grant, essentially,” Tinsley said.

As the whistle is blown to stop the time, varsity wrestling captain Noah Jadd ‘26 listens to his coach’s advice and directing Nov. 29. Canyon wrestled their first dual against Valor, with a final score of 51-17 L. “My favorite part of wrestling is being successful in the sport,” Jadd said. “There’s no better feeling than placing at tournaments and winning duals.” (media by Ella Heimer)
Brikelle Paxton ‘25 and Komi Edwards ‘26 practice their violins in the band room during Access Nov. 30. The annual musical concert, Jaguar Symphony, used the orchestra room to rehearse, so students who are not participating practiced in the band room. “The violin is a string instrument and I’ve been playing since I was six,” Paxton said. “I really enjoy being in orchestra and the community it creates.” (media by Claudia Llado)
Saanvi Kirdak ‘26, Ihita Kataru ‘26 and Mai Intongkam ‘26 sit side by side under the 8000s pod’s stairway and read “A Raisin in the Sun” during Honors English II Nov. 30. “A Raisin in the Sun,” a play written by American writer and playwright Lorraine Hansberry, depicts the lives of an African American family during the 1950s residing in Chicago. Students grouped up with their tablemates and assigned themselves roles from a list of characters in the play. The class was then divided into two halves, one remaining inside the classroom to read and the other going outside into the halls. Along with participating in reading with their peers, students also analyzed the text and completed annotation assignments. “I like this activity because it allows me to spend time with my friends and I’m learning at the same time,” Kataru said.

Varsity basketball forward Nolan Kliewer ‘24 shoots a free throw in the home game against Grandview High School Dec. 1. The Jags beat the Wolves 59-54. Kliewer scored three points during this game, with an average of six points per game and six rebounds so far this season. “We still are not anywhere close to playing our best basketball yet. We still have lots of room to get better and play better as the season goes on, we’ll keep getting better and hopefully winning. I don’t see any team in the state we can’t beat this year,” Kliewer said. (media by Quinn Barton)
