Artist Spotlight: Anne Sophie Lacombe

Lauren Hagerty '21 How long have you been acting/doing plays/musicals? “Technically I’ve been doing plays since I was 7, like the little plays over the summer, but my first real play production was when I was 12.” Before pursuing acting, Anne Sophie was a competitive synchronized swimmer. She originally joined synchronized swimming after being inspired by her older sister, who was also a synchronized swimmer.  What got you interested in theater? Even at a young age, she acted purely because she loves it and it brought her joy, “after doing that first play I just knew this is what I…

This year, the theme was “the most boring day ever”. The two plays put on were “Not Fit to Print”, written by Bennet Kruse, Lauren Roque, and Finn…

SHP’s Hidden Gem: The Pulse Performance Team

SHP’s Hidden Gem: The Pulse Performance Team

Alexandra Hull '22 One of the highlights of the school year for many students, parents, and athletes alike is undoubtedly the Fall football season. Being under Friday night lights in a huge high school crowd is unforgettable, and is often a source of fun memories that students can look back on for the rest of their lives. But, perhaps the best part of the whole season is watching Pulse perform at halftime. It always seems that no matter what the conditions are (cold temperatures, uneventful game), Pulse’s music, smiles, and fast-paced routines always help infuse the crowd with energy. In…

49ers Bandwagon

49ers Bandwagon

Grady Hornbeek '20 Let’s be honest, now’s the perfect time to hop back on the 49er’s bandwagon. They’re back, and with them comes millions of Bay Area residents who haven’t watched a game since 2013. These bandwagoners come in large numbers, repping the Patrick Willis jersey they had from the last Superbowl appearance. Most of these fans couldn’t tell you much about the 49er’s journey to this Superbowl. Yes, Jimmy G is super hot, but did you know he used to play for the Patriots? Probably not. The new coach, Kyle Shanahan is great, but most of you didn’t watch…

Monte: Passing on His Craft to Students While Continuing to Cultivate It

Alexandra Hull '22 Known for his casual and cool personality, stellar dance moves, and angel-like guardianship over the freshman classes year after year, Monte has practically become an idol at SHP throughout his time here. When he is not killing it on the Warrior’s court at halftime or diligently planning each spirit week activity months in advance, you can catch him socializing with students in the cafeteria or working on new choreography to teach to his different dance classes. Although most students feel as though they know Monte pretty well, this article aims to help deepen such knowledge as we…
