Ugh. Changing schools. Some teens are lucky enough to have never faced being a new student. Others are forced to put on a brave face and walk onto a new campus alone. I personally feared starting a new school this year. At first, finding out that I was changing schools was hard. You know the onset: ...

A young boy lays on his bed, carefully listening to his parents argue throughout the night. He wrestles with a crippling question about his family. Will they stay together? ”Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”- Martin...

Friends are all we care about when we’re young. We were taught to stay with our friends through everything, and to believe that a friend would never maliciously hurt us. Most of us have based our friendships on these presumptions, though the truth about authentic friendships changes as we move to identify ...

I wasn't sure what shocked me more, the pain shooting down my leg or the terror in my mom’s eyes. As our car tore through the city streets, my brain couldn't process what was happening. I don't remember much, but I do recall racing through multiple red lights. While my mom was on the phone with 91...

Have you ever looked at a teacher or administrator and wondered if they ever walked the halls of a middle school? Yes, they did. And some did really close to our own stomping grounds. A former EIS student, Mr. Apodaca, gave the Day Creek Howl a photo and interview of himself during middle school and we hav...

I remember early on, asking big questions about my life.  Why don't I live with a mom and a dad? Was it my fault that they split up?  Did he leave us because of me? I didn’t necessarily feel anger or resentment, just confusion.  I wanted him to come back, yet I had accepted the realization that this ...

Shots were fired from heavy machine guns at point-blank range. Bullets flew through the air, dangerously close to the heads of British soldiers. With 100 troops on a single boat, one man steered them to safety. He never thought they would get out alive. World War One was one of the most devastatin...

Attention all middle school students of the Etiwanda School District: Watch out! The schools have recently installed security cameras on several of our campuses.

Day Creek has many different types of students. Along with the such unique personalities, there are also many distinct talents. Unfortunately, school focuses solely on core classes - busy teaching us how many watermelons Jimmy bought, which causes us to overlook other unrelated special skills. Lucki...

We all know that Day Creek’s students are pretty sharp when it comes to our four core subjects. But we often forget about the other talents (other than math, science, social studies and language arts) that students at our school possess. But lucky for you, the Day Creek Howl team will recognize them f...

Day Creek is putting on another one of its amazing plays. The campus will soon enjoy “a tale as old as time,” Beauty and the Beast. What’s missed is all the hard work the cast and crew have been putting in these past two months. When viewing the play as a finished product, it’s near perfect...
