    As the school year begins, there are a few new classes in the schedule. Librarian Callie Bartelson is teaching Novels, and technology education teacher Bryan Bates introduced Auto General Service/Woodworking.

For students who love to read, novels is a good class to take.

“I like to read, and it sounded fun sharing books with my classmates,” sophomore Brady Beal said.

The students in Novels read certain genres like American literature, nonfiction and contemporary fiction. Beal said reading certain genres helps the students read books that they usually wouldn’t read to widen their knowledge and understanding of books.

Auto General Service/Woodworking, also known as Powderpuff Auto, was created  by Mr. Bates.

“I wanted to have a class that shows girls that they can do these jobs and learn these skills as well as boys can,” Bates says.

People seem to think that working on cars in a boy thing, but this class helps girls understand that it should be for all genders. However, not all students in the class cared that it was girls only.

“It wouldn’t matter to me if there was boys or girls. Gender shouldn’t matter in a class,” Lefebvre said.
