Lady Beavers Defeat Edison Wildcats

Last night the Lady Beavers took on the Edison Wildcats. Due to injuries on Edisons team, the junior varsity game was shortened to just two quarters. With that being said, the JV won their game 14-6.  The varsity team also took home a win with a score of 51-40. Overall, it was a good game and both teams came out with a win. The varsity squad now moves on to a record of 4-2, and 3-1 in in the Buckeye 8 North Division. The next time the lady Beavers take the court will be on Thursday at East Liverpool. Go Beavers!

Tips for College


Being a senior in high school means that you have many decisions to make in a short period of time. It can be tough, yes, but it’s mostly exciting. With those decisions, comes a main one. Picking a college where you want to continue your academic career. Whether it’d be a rural school, or a city, big, or small, it’s your decision to make and it’s a very important one at that. Personally, I’m stuck between two great colleges. In my opinion, a city school is the best for me and I think I would really enjoy going to school in the city. But just a few reminders when searching for your perfect college.

First, take into consideration in what type of area you want to go to. The city or country?

Next , decide whether you want to attend a large school, or a small one.

Lastly, do research and insure that they do have the major you want. Some schools do not offer every single major.

Hopefully these tips will guide you into making the right decision in picking your dream school!

Art Appreciation takes on Bob Ross

Art appreciation is a class at Beaver Local High school that studies different artists such as Pablo Picasso, Leonardo Da Vinci, and many others. This week we took on the challenge of recreating one piece of artwork done by the amazing Bob Ross. Many students find this challenging since he is one of the best artists of our time. Our task was simple, choose one art piece that he made from his successful tv show and recreate it. Personally, I chose a piece called the “ Lazy River” that depicts a green forest with a beautiful river running through the middle. Other students have chosen sunsets, mountains, or even cabin scenes. There was a lot of excitement surrounding this project as we got to use canvases, which the majority of the class has never used before, paint along with the majestic Bob Ross, and create a beautiful painting for ourselves. We’re still finishing up our paintings, but here are a few creations that students have made so far.

If you’re thinking about taking this class then I would highly recommend it. It’s one of the highlights of my day and I’m so happy I decided to take it.  Almost as happy as Bob painting his happy little trees. Also, it’s taught by the wonderful Mrs. Congo who makes art fun. Thank you for reading!

7 Tips for this Years Dances


With fall homecoming just around the corner, these few tips should help make your dance experience a whole lot better!


Tip #1: Ensure that the person you choose to take to the homecoming or prom will not flake on you at the last minute. Imagine getting a text a week before the dance saying “ sorry can’t make it this weekend. I hope you have fun!” You’d be completely mortified, right? Well just make sure to check up on your date at least one time before the dance just for safe measures.


Tip #2: Find something to wear that really suits you and brings out the best! Whether it’d be that beautiful sparkling dress you’ve had your eye on or that pair of bright red dress shoes. Wear something that makes you feel great, and don’t be afraid of what others might think.


Tip #3: Accessories are key. Be sure to accessorize with bracelets, earrings, rings, ties, and necklaces. Those are what pull the whole outfit together, and without them, the look will be boring and bland. A few stores that sell some good accessories are Dillard’s, Macy’s, JCPenney, and even Walmart!


Tip #4: If you’re going to get your nails, hair, or makeup done, don’t forget to make your appointments ahead of time! Salons tend to fill up quick on days of homecomings or proms. Make your appointment at least three weeks in advance so that you can secure a spot!

Tip #5: When choosing shoes make sure to get a pair that not only goes great with your outfit, but that is also comfortable! You don’t want to be miserable half the night because of your feet. So be certain to choose shoes that feel good to wear!


Tip #6: Before the dance even starts, talk with your date about who’s paying for what. For example, one person will buy the tickets and pictures, while the other person will pay for dinner afterward! You don’t want to run into any complications when it comes down to money, so make sure to be organized!


Tip #7: The final tip is to have fun, and to not give one thought about what other people think. This is high school, you only have four years of it to make the most out of it!
