April 23, 2019

Since I was twelve years old, everything that I’ve done in school, at work, and even at home has led back to one goal: getting into Duke. I made college into a dream instead of a reality, pushing myself to and even past my limit, because I knew that one day it would be worth it. Then, two weeks...

The sun is gleaming, the grass is green and the sky is blue. You want to be enjoying the beautiful weather, but you’re stuck at a desk inside a cold building. With the amount of snow days we’ve had this school year, administration is debating between adding days to the end of the year or adding f...

Taking dance too far

Taking dance too far

Morgan Haworth, Social Media Manager

February 22, 2019

Participating in a sport, competitive or not, is already a lot of extra work aside from school. From basketball to volleyball, the requirements and commitment to a team can be exhausting. The sport I happen to love is dance. As a child I obviously did not know the extreme hours I would put into da...

Biggest sporting event of the year flops

Biggest sporting event of the year flops

Blake Beashore, Staff Writer

February 11, 2019

The 53rd Super Bowl was the worst Super Bowl ever. It was the lowest scoring game in Super Bowl history. The final score was 13-3 Patriots, and what is normally the biggest event in sports was a lackluster, boring performance by each team. The game provided no excitement all the way through. The score w...

My mom was 15 years old when she started smoking cigarettes. She used to buy them from a vending machine at the bowling alley, no I.D. required, all while in her high school cheerleading uniform. When I was younger, I used to think it was crazy how easy it was for such a young person to access someth...

We are now four weeks in to the new school year and after getting the swing of my new schedule it has still not really hit me that it’s senior year.

Gifted class gives unfair advantage to advanced students

Hannah Haworth, Co-Web Editor

April 24, 2018

I am second in my class. Granted I am behind about four people tied for first, but I am still second, and I did this without ever being qualified for the advanced studies class. The reason I am so frustrated with this class is not because the “advanced” students are smarter than me, but rathe...

Dear Students, I’ve been listening and watching the news for several days since the violence in Parkland, Florida and wondering how did we, once again, allow more of you to be mowed down by an apparently disturbed, young man wielding a high-powered, military-style assault weapon with a large capa...
