The class of 2020 have just finished working on a “feminist criticism” unit. As a project, the students decorated the lockers that line the hallway near Ms. Langley’s room.

Feminist Criticism Lockers

During this unit, the 7th graders read and wrote various pieces that touched the topic of feminism in different ways. Each group had a inquiry question to answer using their locker, topics including gender stereotypes, beauty standards, and feminism in general.


“My favorite part was answering my questions that I had, and kind of seeing other peoples views on my same questions,” says Lucy Stagg, a student in Ms. Langley’s 2nd period class.

“At the end [of the unit], you got to do this locker, and you realized how much potential you have, and how much creativity [you have],” says Fatima Rosales, from 8th period.

“My favorite part of this project was expressing the way we feel about it [feminism] and being able to branch out, because it’s a very broad topic, and you can go in different ways to display it,” says Lorenya Munoz.


If Indie alternative rock is playing in the background and you see a curly headed girl with a highbrew in her hand you are likely to have run into Polaris Press Print Editor in Chief Emily Weaver. Emily has been involved with The Polaris Press since her freshman year of highschool at the Ann Richards School, and at that time it wasn’t a class but just a club she went to weekly. Emily is always completing tasks, you’ll find her surprisingly calm with tons of finished assignments around her just waiting to tackle on the next one. Alongside finishing these tasks Emily also problem solves constantly. She’s constantly learning from those around her to fix the issues she sees around her, which she brings into newspaper. You can expect more problem solving from Emily in her next few years of college after her final year of high school.
