The Sabre Voice
This week we voiced our thoughts on Hispanic Heritage month and current politics.
As of this month there has been conflict within our country. We are covering the briefing of the impeachment inquiry against our President, Donald Trump. We also interviewed students and teachers about what they know about current politics.
The Homecoming court this year was spectacular. Once nominations were announced, the court was a whirlwind of competition and campaigning til the very end. Congratulations, Breanna Tejeda!
This year's Homecoming dance was one-in-a-million. Well, more like one-in-twenty-three because this year we had South Meck's first Homecoming dance in 23 years. The night was a pleasure for everyone in attendance.
PSAT’s are on Wednesday the 16th. The 16th will be a half day for all students, but the PSAT’s are only for Sophomores and Juniors. The PSAT is a “pre-SAT”, setting the baseline for the students who take it. Your PSAT score is not sent into colleges, but is frequently used for scholarship opportunities, so do your best!
Midterms are on the 23rd and 24th of October. On Wednesday, October 23rd, the midterms are for first and third period. On Thursday, October 24th, the midterms are for second and fourth period. The 23rd and 24th will still be full days, and you will go to all of your classes.

Quote of the Week
"All I need to do is try and do the best that I can do." - Selena Quintanilla
You just need to try at things, life is too short to be doubting everything. Therefore, wear the dress, ask that person to homecoming. Do what you're good at, and try new things. Everything happens for a reason. If you're good at something then stick to that.
This week we constructed a quiz with some teachers around South Meck we gave them one minute to answer multiplication problems in their head. Watch the broadcast to see if you can you pass this quiz too!
This story is wonderful, we are so glad Ms. T is back in the halls of South Meck!
We interviewed students and asked them to preform 9 things they´ve never done before.
