The beef with beef jerky

Pictured above are two 0.85 ounce bags of beef jerky sold by the cafeteria. “Teriyaki” and “Peppered” are two of the three flavors sold; they also happen to be equally popular, while the third flavor, “Original,” trails just a couple sales behind.

The poster will highlight how fashion is more than just clothing, but also how it can convey moods and feelings. “ [The goal] is to create awareness for people struggling with mental health.

Five Teams, One Gym

The boys lacrosse team sprints across the gym during the conditioning part of tryouts. As soon as their tryouts finished, the baseball team was quick to take the court. “With such a tight schedule, it was important to get on the court as soon as softball finished.
