2018 Jr/Sr Banquet

La Sierra’s annual Junior-Senior Banquet was held at the Fox Theater in Redlands. The junior class planned and arranged for the food and entertainment to create a wonderful event, which was fairly nice and unique in its own way. The theme for this year was Masquerade, which the location lived up to since it was…

SA Beach Day 2018

Our last beach day of the school year 2017-2018 was one to remember, but it wasn’t for the usual reasons. The usual reasons consist of getting too much sand in our bags, taking many, many pictures, playing volleyball or football, or just having a good time in the cold yet refreshing water. Instead of the…

2nd Semester Week of Prayer

Week of Prayer is always an exciting time on our campus. Not only is the schedule different than a normal week, but students get to hear from a speaker (or speakers) generally very different from the norm. One thing that set this one apart was this it was led by students instead of the usual…

Cross Country Season 2017

The first sports of the year are volleyball and cross country. Volleyball is a sacred sport here at La Sierra, especially to the boys. Cross Country is there too, behind all the volleyball championship trophies. However, the truth is that Cross Country is a fairly under-appreciated sport that helps prepare you for any other sports…

Mission Trip to Dominican Republic

Right before the trip, a hurricane hit the Dominican Republic, but that didn’t stop the students who committed to go and help do the task set up for them. The task for…

During this day, students traditionally travel to different areas in the community and helping to clean up trash and make things look nice. My own experience with community service has left me rethinking my ideas…
