CHS welcomes new students
For new students, the transition between schools can be a very difficult process.
Making their way through the halls and seeing many new faces may create a barrier in communication with the other students.
To keep this from happening and to get the new students involved in the school, die Canyon High School Student Council and the Counselors gave a New Student party Oct. I.
One hundred new students were invited to the CHS Commons to enjoy the party.
The party was started by introducing the principal, Will Klieg, and our counseling staff. The student council members hosting the event were introduced and the new students were brought up to speed on the school’s activities and functions. The students enjoyed cakes and cookies during the presentations.
Since many of the new students didn’t know each other, the student council played an ice-breaker to help the students meet (me another. The object of the game was to get someone they didn’t know to do an activity and sign a paper. The first student finished won a prize. At the end of the party a drawing took place to give out prizes. Many of the prizes were donated by different military groups. All the students had a great time and were grateful for the recognition.

As homecoming week approaches, many of the activities are beginning. Homecoming wall banners are being decorated and put up, and the selection for Homecoming Queen is near. On October IO all of the student body will vote for its choice for Homecoming Queen. This year’s candidates are die lovely Gail Gitcho, Damey Meyer, Tyana Michalec and Renessa Reeh. Best of luck to each of them!
With all the festivities and activities in the school, the student council members still make an effort to get to know as many people as possible. Hopefully, they make new students feel more at home. As for homecoming, it has just begun and will prove to be an awesome task!

Teamwork a key to success
In 1943 he was playing in five-dollar-a-week comedy clubs. His wife was pregnant with their first child and they needed money to raise a family. His uncle offered him a job in his butcher shop, but before giving up his show business dream, he stopped at a Catholic church and, according to tradition, prayed to St. Jude for direction. Soon after this prayer, his act was booked at Chez Paris in Chicago. The five-year booking helped launch his television career. Danny Thomas had made it to the big time.
Out of gratitude, he built one of the best hospitals for children in the world — St. Jude’s in Memphis, Tenn. To Catholic believers St. Jude's is the saint in charge of impossible acts. Danny Thomas began funding the hospital in 1957 with the mission to make war against killer diseases that strike the young.
The impossible became possible.
Largely because of the continued devotion of Danny Thomas, the survival rate for acute lymphocytic leukemia advanced from 4 percent in 1962 to 73 percent in 1991; the survival rate for non-Hodgkin lymphoma moved from 7 percent to 80 percent. According to his friend Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy’s International, Danny’s success was based on simple principles: integrity; devotion to service; inspiring others to a cause greater than self interest.
To make the impossible possible, we must first treat others right by mastering
three fundamentals: empathy, teamwork and support. The biggest handicap we must all overcome is false pride.
We are bom with the drive to put ourselves first, to consider ourselves the most important force in the universe. We can’t be successful — be fulfilled — until we learn to consider others just as important as ourselves.
Mary Ray Ash,

C Cosmetics, has a talent
for feeling what the other person feels. She

attitude, an empathetic spirit. Mary Ray says that she developed this caring attitude by imagining that all the people she meets have a sign around their neck that reads, “Make me feel important.’’
People feel important when they become totally involved in a project that becomes bigger than their individual desires. A team of talented people working toward one goal can complete seemingly impossible tasks.
TEAM can be an acronym for Together Everyone Accomplishes More.
How do we build harmonious teams?
We must have respect for every individual’s contribution. We learn to
John I. Walker
accentuate the positive and ignore the negative in ourselves and others. As we praise the better, the better becomes best. When we ignore the bad, the bad begins to shrivel like unwatered grass.
When people have respect for each other they go out of their way to support the common good. Imagine that your team has a pep rally.
You may say to yourself, “I don’t need that hokum. I’m so excited about this team project. I’m going to stay home and do some work to get our goals accomplished. Let the others go to the pep rally. They need it.”
Missing a rally is similar to Sir Lancelot saying, “The round table discussion — who needs it? I’m missing the meeting so I’ll have time to slay more dragons.” Lancelot may slay a dragon or two. The rest of the knights slay none because they need the boldness of his character to give them courage to get out of their comfort zone and into the woods. In turn, Lancelot develops more courage himself by seeing the courage of others increase.
Teamwork is a window-opening opportunity that involves individual sac ifice for the strength of the common good. Empathy and support unite a team. Team unity strengthens each individual. In helping each other, we make the impossible possible.
