I realized just how important fire drills are on Thursday. At around 2:00 p.m. today, the fire alarms went off all around the school.

What’s a more quintessential American holiday than Thanksgiving? Well, Black Friday. Let’s be honest: nothing captures the truly American values of capitalism and extreme sports than a whole day dedicated to the encouragement of aggressive, frenzied collection of discounted items that one doesn’t...

Many schools have a strict dress code and students here are fortunate to have one of the most lenient. However, for some girls it is harder to wear the same clothes as others.
