If you’re a student you should feel safe enough to be able to put your stuff in your locker and expect it to be there by the time you come back. So why can’t we? Locker thieves. The ones that steal your belongings without a care in the world, and there’s almost nothing you can do about it. You co...

As the weather changes, the autumn leaves are not the only things turning red; so are student’s noses with teachers constantly sending students to the nurse’s office to pick up a new box of tissues. One would assume these tissues would help with the student’s allergies, colds and runny nos...

School lunches have been extended approximately five minutes each from last year's timetable. However, this leaves students without much time to reenergize. Lunches should be longer than 30 minutes.

For many students, the decision on what to wear can sometimes depend on the day’s class schedule rather than the weather outside as no two classrooms in the school are the same temperature. Teachers have the right to keep their rooms at temperatures of their discretion and there may be some outlyi...

Frisco is a community dominated mainly by sports, so much so that you cannot go anywhere without hearing somebody talking about last night’s game. No matter where I am, I am always confronted with questions such as “What’s your favorite team?”, “Did you see the game last night?”, “What...

Call me crazy, but it seems like hand sanitizer dispensers should have some hand sanitizer in them. Almost every classroom has at least one hand sanitizer dispenser stuck to the wall. There also are a few in the cafeteria. They’re in place to give students easy access to hand sanitizer, useful after ...

Awkward. You just made eye contact with that girl you used to be friends with in seventh grade. Get out your phone as a distraction so you don’t have to say hi.
