When you walk in the hallway, chances are you will see more tops of heads than faces. The reason:cell phones. Not that there is anything wrong with them (or use of them in the hall), but if a student is going to use their phone in the hall they should be able to look up at the same time. The crowded...

Although it seems illogical, sick students continuing to attend school is a common sight nowadays. When asked why, most of them respond, “I’m scared of having a lot of makeup work.” It’s understandable, since each class is 90 minutes long and usually filled with a lot of material. Sometime...

Often times, when high school students find themselves in the midst of a political debate, they are asked where they got their information and why they believe what they do.

As a freshman, I am still just beginning to find my footing. When the year started, high school was not something I was used to, and I didn’t exactly know what to expect. It is only natural that a freshman might forget to hand some assignments in on time, right? Well, not all teachers realize that. ...

Many people may not know, but the school day could get extended by five minutes next school year if the school district approves the draft calendar for 2016-17 at Tuesday’s school board meeting.

The semester ends today. Yeah, that’s right. Who’s bright idea was that? I mean, think about it. After the break, students aren’t exactly in the greatest state of mind. Most of them are either tired, mad at the world that school is starting again, or both. And then they’re just shoehorned right...

Something as simple as washing your hands in the restroom should not be life threatening. That’s right, life threatening. How? Hazardous and fire catching objects such as flat irons, curling wands and blow dryers are left behind in the sinks of the bathroom. This is a very impractical and dangerous sit...

You can't go anywhere without hearing about the Powerball lottery draw Wednesday night. Seriously, it just seems to be all anyone is talking about. “Lottery this,” and “lottery that”. It’s as if people think that they actually have a chance at winning. It seems as if no one really understands the...

If students are struggling in English, there may be a solution. The problem may remain in the lack of reading books. Most students either don’t have any time to read, don’t like to read, get caught up in social media, or don’t read higher level books that target their age group or above, which causes students to be unpr...

School is, no doubt, a place for learning and education. The chairs in the lecture hall may be comfortable, but they are very loud and distracting. The creaky sounds that they often create irritate and annoy students. Many annoyed looks from students can be seen when another student leans back to str...

Students walk into lunch hungry, cranky, and on a search for food. Then all of a sudden, a group of students walk into the cafeteria and start socializing. In the cafeteria lunch line. Not only do they start talking and drawing all attention to them, they also decide to cut the line. The entire “squ...
