The holidays often inspire a sense of charity into the hearts of many, but for some this seems to be the only time of year which they feel generous. While giving back during the holiday season is a wonderful and necessary thing to do, the practice seems to have an expiration date for most come the new year...

After Homecoming, Pink Out and Senior Night for fall sports, the season of pep rallies is basically over as there is only more scheduled for the rest of the school year. That’s not nearly enough as the school should have more pep rallies. All of the school’s pep rallies are crammed into the first few m...

Passwords are the keys to our social media accounts, our mobile devices, our college application profiles, and even our banking accounts. And with the increasing digitalization of information, they have essentially become the keys into our lives. Access to our online identity, academic future, and financial ...

It starts with Thanksgiving break, the first in a series of hard earned breaks, that give students an excuse to lie back and enjoy days away from school. Now, with their brains back in school mode, students can begin to look forward to winter break, the second big break of the school year. Yes, th...

Students are looking for a nice, quiet place to study for that history test. The cafeteria is incredibly loud so they head to the library. Little do they know, the library isn’t as peaceful as it might seem. As they walk in, they see clusters of other students scattered all throughout the room....

There’s always that one kid who stops the teacher in the middle of their lesson to ask “why do we need to know this?” or “how is this going to ever help us in life?”. This raises the question of how state curriculum works and how it is set up for success, blurring whether or not the material...

Throughout my past four years on campus, there has been a mix of teachers that are more strict than others when it comes to trips to the bathroom during class. Their policies range from letting students go whenever they want, only letting one go at a time, or giving students one bathroom trip per six weeks...

Next year the school’s cheerleaders will be, hopefully, going to competitions. This is exciting because cheer will finally be considered a sport at schools throughout Texas. The UIL approved a pilot year for the 2015-16 school year for cheer competitions and if all goes well, the program will stay. Some ch...

The hallways of the school are always crowded with students rushing to get to their next class in just six minutes. By the time they run across the steep stairs and endless hallways, the bell has already rung, leaving students with no time to stop by the bathroom to attend to nature’s calls. In the...

There are norms in society that all people are expected to live up to. Research has shown that three to five friends is the optimal number of friends a person should have. That is the most ludicrous thing I have ever heard, for three reasons. One: Some people find that they function best alone, and no...

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.
