Dance will be good way to stay warm in winter

Winter sports are nearing their end, but winter seems far from leaving our valley. This week is Winterfest at GSHS, a fun spirit week that culminates with a dance from 9 to midnight on Friday the 13th in the Auxiliary Gym. This dance is unique: There will be live entertainment! A DJ will be scratching and playing music all night long, so come and dance any winter blues away.


Cassie Brickell is this week’s female Student of the Week. Mr. Wilde, one of our natural science teachers, nominated Cassie. “Cassie leads by example. She is a quiet but determined student who is also a great team player. I can always be sure the group she works with will be on task and focused.”

Cassie has lived in Glenwood her entire life, and is the daughter of Lynette and Guy Brickell. She has a younger sister named Tiffany, and an older brother, Cody, whom she misses a lot. During the summer, Cassie enjoys visiting Minnesota with her family.

As spring draws near, Cassie looks forward to the soccer season, and Spring Break vacation. At school, Cassie is involved in the student government as the freshman class treasurer. When she has free time, Cassie loves to play soccer and improve her ball-handling skills. She also shares a liking for one of my favorite activities: dancing! Not many people know that Cassie has a passion for country music. I’m sure she has some fun dances for those western-style lyrics!

One of Cassie’s favorite quotes is a beautiful one by Maya Angelou: “The main thing in one’s own private world is to try to laugh as much as you cry.”

Congratulations Cassie! Good luck this spring!

The second inspiring Student of the Week is Marcus Bosco. Marcus was nominated by Ms. Boyd, a Spanish language teacher at GSHS. Ms. Boyd praised Marcus as being a “really hard worker, nice, intelligent, and pleasant to be around. He has a great natural ability for Spanish.” Que bueno!

Marcus has lived in Glenwood for the majority of his life. Marcus says that he has a very loving family, and they enjoy watching movies together. He is the son of proud parents Lauri and John Bosco, and has two younger brothers, Tony and Justin.

Marcus is a member of FBLA, and is a player on the local Grizzly Hockey Team. He loves to listen to music, play the guitar, ski and skate. He looks forward to soon being able to take himself to these different activities when he receives his driver’s license.

After high school, Marcus would like to attend the School of Mines or possibly join the U.S. Marine Corps.

He is a hard worker and positive student. He follows the saying, “The greatest mistake you can make is being afraid to make a mistake.”

Congratulations Marco!


Random Disclosure: Red is one of the best school colors. It’s often associated with excitement and heightened emotions. The Orchard Mesa Pool in Grand Junction was filled with swimmers, coaches and parents adorned in red anything when the Demon girls swim team won the District Championships this weekend.
