On December 16, Gareth Edwards rocked the world with his movie Rogue One as it premiered in theaters all over the world.
Critics said things like “desirable and fantastic” as they reviewed the movie. Rotten Tomatoes rated the movie at an 84 percent, and IMDB rated it an 8.2/10. The movie also really amazed viewers. Some Mountain View students gave their opinion on the movie after seeing it.
Miles Yablonowski said, “It fit really well in between (movies) 3 and 4. I thought Darth Vader was dope. I thought the girl was hot.”
Braydon McArthur said, “The last minute was so good; it led into the 4th movie really well. The fighting wasn’t as entertaining.”
Breelyn Cardon said, “It tied in really well, and I liked that they added comedic relief. I liked the blind dude. I didn’t like how little romance there was.”
Critics loved this new side story of Star Wars, and fellow students loved it. If you haven’t seen it, go see it.

As the new year approaches, teachers and staff at Mountain View are beginning to make their resolutions. Mr. Prestwich, the head custodian at Mountain View, disregarded his New Year's resolutions saying, “I ain’t changing nothing for nobody.”
Dr. Chun, the school principal said that his goal was to lose 10 pounds. “That’s not anything fantastic, but that’s one.”
Mr. Criman expressed the sentiment that it’s “so hard to modify perfection.” He then expressed desire to maintain his life so Grant Stowell won’t take over the drama department.
The attendance office also had some goals for the New Year. Ms. Burgi said that she hopes to be more organized.
“Be kinder, be more organized, and love all mankind,” commented Mr. Bowman on his New Year's resolutions.
Many of the teachers expressed that they have yet to really think about their resolutions. Mrs. Freytag said “I have not even thought that far yet. I’m still working up to Christmas.”
The New Year is coming quickly and the year 2017 is an opportunity for many to set some new goals.

Over the few months, young men at Mountain View High School have dropped off wooden roses to random girls. No one really knows why, and no one knows who these young men are.
So far, four wooden roses have been handed out.
These roses come attached to a letter with something different written on each one. These roses have helped many girls feel important.
These young men leave their mark at the bottom of each letter, encoded with the signature “AC.”
No one knows how long they have been doing this. All that is known is that they have been making a difference in other people's lives.
These men, whoever they are, plan to drop off more these flowers full of encouragement, hope

Mountain View hosted a blood drive at the auditorium on December 5th to collect blood.
Christmas is the season for giving. When most people think of giving, they picture presents wrapped with bows and tape galore. How many folks image blood bags and needles?
The fact is, an alarming number of people require blood. The only place to get the human blood necessary is from other humans. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, it is illegal to take it by force. As such, kind people are needed to sacrifice their own blood for the sake of others.
Lauren Roberts is one of those people. It was her first time donating, but she “[wasn’t] really” nervous about it. She said that what she was doing was a good thing.
The donors weren’t the only heroes who helped, though. Workers and volunteers, students and Red Cross nurses alike, were given the task to retrieving the prize and making the donors as comfortable and calm as possible.
A student volunteer, Romissa Leiva, was found at the scene. Her job was to check people in and give them a sticker. “I love it,” she said. She loved “knowing [she was] helping someone else.
Lyssa Winkler, worker, had the job of a phlebotomist. A phlebotomist is someone who has been trained to draw blood from a patient. She said, “[My favorite part is] being able to help people help others.”
It’s refreshing to watch the community come together to help serve people they don’t know.
