A HAND MADE TALE (April 11): As part of its class project exploring children’s theatre, the Theatre 4 class worked outside today during third period, learning how to operate puppets in order to tell fairytales. “We got to unleash our inner child,” senior Evalyn McCusker said, “and it was a blast and a half.” Photo by Tomas Marrero.

16 GOING ON 15 (April 8): Sophomores Lucy Smith and Richard Hernandez dance at the McCallum High School Ballet Folklórico Quinceañera tonight. Of the 16 McCallum girls who participated in the event, some had never had a quinceañera, some were celebrating their quinceañera for a second time, and four were celebrating their real quinceañeras. The quinceañera started with a dance routine that the 16 girls and their partners practiced everyday at lunch for two weeks and was followed by lots of food, music and more dancing. McCallum Spanish teacher, Juana Gun, coordinated the event for the third straight year in order to give McCallum girls a chance to participate in the Latino cultural celebration. “This started when one of my Ballet Folklorico girls said, ‘Mrs. Gun, did you have a quinceañera?’ and I said, ‘No, my family couldn’t afford it,'” Gun said. “So, we brainstormed how we could have a McCallum High School quinceañera for people that wanted to be in it.” Photo and reporting by Steven Tibbetts.

MAC JUST WANTS TO HAVE FUN (April 6): The final day of #academyweek was an eventful one, featuring Mr. Garrison, Abi Richter and Tryston Davis singing “Girls Just Want to have Fun” at the karaoke station in the fine arts courtyard. In addition to performances from Garrison and other students, the Fine Arts Academy week also showcased stage fighting lessons in the theater with Mr. Denning. In the main hallway, there was Virtual Reality Club demonstration. “[Planning this week] involved a lot of communication with the heads of the fine arts departments,” Dietz said. “[But most of the] events were successful.” Photo by Madison Olsen.

Wednesday (April 4) was another eventful day in the inaugural #AcademyWeek. The day’s offerings included musical theatre, dance, piano and knot tying. Thursday’s lunchtime offerings include First Edition in the ampitheater, a guitar trio in the solar classroom, a film demo in the English portable courtyard and tap dance in the Fine Arts Building Theater.

NEVER AGAIN (March 24): Marjory Stoneman Douglas High senior Jack Haimowitz shares an embrace after his emotional speech at today’s #marchforourlives at the Texas Capitol in downtown Austin. Haimowitz spoke of the awful Feb. 14 shooting on his campus. “What took place on Valentine’s Day not only stripped the students of Douglas of their innocence, but it brutally ripped 17 lives from their homes.” He also spoke of the resolve he and his classmates and have found since the shooting. “We are the change we never knew we needed, and we have found the strength that we never knew we were looking for. … Every day I see people not only wishing for change but refusing to accept anything else.” He also pleaded with the audience for unity. “If we ever wish to fully overcome the hatred and fear of a scale such as this, we must unite as Americans regardless of the societal, racial and physical constructs put in place to hinder our unification.” Photo by Madison Olsen.

MOORE TO THINK ABOUT (Feb. 15): Juniors Ray-Mya Hardeman and Gavin Hurtado and sophomore Sam Werkenthin were among the students who found out today that a presentation from University of Texas history professor Dr. Leonard Moore is an interactive experience. With a presentation that often included direct conversation with members of the audience, Moore, the interim vice president for diversity and community engagement at UT, visited McCallum today as part of the school’s observance of Black History Month. Among the points that Dr. Moore drove home during fifth period today is the idea that perspectives toward and opportunities in higher education are shaped by a person’s background. The parents of minority students, he said, are much more likely than parents of white students to put economic concerns about higher education first when determining where to send their kids to school. He also made the point that the opportunity for higher education for black students is disproportionately tied to participation in sports: 4 percent of the general UT student population is black, he said, while the vast majority of football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball players are black. He also urged students who are considering serving in the military to attend college first and then enlist in the armed forces rather than enlisting first and then pursuing higher education.

CENTER STAGE (Feb. 14): The McCallum chamber guitar ensemble and the two bands that won last semester’s Battle of the Bands performed at Stubbs BBQ Tuesday night.

MARCHERS RALLY FOR PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT: Handmaids stand in silent protest at the pro-life rally on Jan. 27.

The robes and our stoic faces are louder than a scream.” Photo by Emma Baumgardner.

Week of Jan. 13-20, 2018

ONE YEAR AFTER protestors descended on Austin to reject their inaugurated president, they returned downtown on Jan. 20 to announce that they still found him unfit for office. “This is a country of immigrants,” marcher Todd Cary said. “The way [Trump] discriminates against immigrants and minorities is wrong, and I’m very much against it. We’re going to start 2018 by voting out some of his senators and congressmen.” While calling for Trump’s impeachment and campaigning for Democratic replacements of Trump allies, those who marched from City Hall to the Capitol today also observed a second Women’s March. “We wanted to honor the memory of the march last year, which was one of the most moving experiences of our lives,” said marchers Sarah and Tula Richardson. Finally, the march commemorated the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that established a federal right to abortion. Former Texas senator and Democratic gubernatoral candidate in 2014 Wendy Davis was among the featured speakers at the Capitol. In an exclusive interview with Macjournalism, Davis said, “No matter the resistance we meet in fighting for our reproductive rights and so many of the other things we care about, if we can just own the power of our own voice, we will be a part of a movement that is ultimately going to overwhelm that opposition and is going to realize change.” We will have more of our interview with Davis plus a second exclusive interview with state representative Donna Howard, D-Austin, the keynote speaker at the afternoon rally.

THE LOR OF THE RUNWAY (Jan. 13): At McCallum’s annual benefit fashion show on Saturday night, 12 student lines were showcased by 49 student models.

Third place went to senior Genevieve Temple, whose icon was actress and model Jane Burkin. Second went to senior Bethany Raup, who was inspired by rapper Kwon Jiyong. Freshman Veronica Crist took first place and chose actress Zendaya as her icon. Proceeds from the show benefitted the McCallum visual arts department and Out Youth, a local support organization for LGBTQIA+ youth. Photo by Bella Russo.

HAIL YES! In the 5A D2 Region IV semifinal in San Antonio’s Alamodome on Dec. 2, McCallum took a 14-8 lead it never surrendered after Mason Bryant pulled in this 47-yard, half-ending Hail Mary pass from Max Perez despite triple coverage. Earlier in the quarter, Bryant, also the team’s punter, fielded a bad snap and dashed for a first down to extend the drive that led to this play and proved to be the decisive momentum changer for the game. After halftime, the 2017 Knights cruised to a 33-8 win to improve to 13-0 for the season while also avenging a 51-year-old playoff loss to the same school that ended the 1966 Knights perfect season at 11-1. Many of those Knights were in attendance to see their old score settled. Photo by Ian Clennan.
