Literacy leads to learning

It’s understandable that high school teens don’t have a desire to read anything other than the text messages and tweets on their phones, because many of the reading requirements set by schools and English teachers are classic novels that aren’t relatable or even interesting to their generation.

More than meets the eye: Ordinary activities not always easy, take hard work, dedication

Whether it’s writing, playing sports, or making good grades some people find things easier than others. I find small talk difficult. I just can’t chit-chat with people, if there’s not a real topic, the conversation soon devolves into awkward staring. Some people just find things easier than others. However just, because things seem easy to […]

Going the distance: Senior shot put competitor advances to state, earns fifth

Up stairs. Down stairs. Wind sprints. Exhausting work for any athlete, but an average day for senior Chassidy Rusk. Though she doesn’t run in any track events, she is a part of the shot put team and it’s much more than hurling an 8.8 lb. steel ball down the field.

Art of distraction: Adult coloring books provide escape

At the ripe ol’ age of 15, I often look back nostalgically on my days of school-mandated naptime, the addict-like rush of joy that comes with recess, and most of all: insurmountable collections of coloring books. In kindergarten I was fond of scribbling lines of crayon into the printed outline of Disney princesses and random zoo animals, both inside the lines and out. There has always been something about coloring books that takes an insane amount of focus and determination for a young child, and shoving a crayon into a child’s hand and putting a coloring page in front of them has proven to be one of the most effective ways of buying parents and teachers a few moments of silence.

From Little League to collegiate play, baseball player realizes dream

Standing on the pitcher’s mound, dirt blowing at the pitcher’s feet, all eyes on him, but he’s only focusing on the batter standing sixty feet away. The crowd grows silent, no one breathes for the game is too intense and the pitcher needs one more strike. Senior Landon Minor carries the weight of the pressure […]

Faculty members honored by superintendent

The 212 degree award is an award that recognizes employees who go above and beyond their duties. Water is hot at 211 degrees, but at 212 degrees water turns to steam which is powerful enough to move a locomotive. This year head monitor Lester Banks and science teacher Colleen Holmes were two of ten district employees recognized with this honor by superintendent Tommy Wallis.

Crossing over: Teacher transitions back to being student for summer

Many of us look to our teachers as mentors, guides, and in many cases, holders of infinite knowledge who we could only one day hope to possess. Often times we forget that teachers were once students, and have shared many of the difficult feats we face every day. For some teachers, school doesn’t end with the final bell after finals, but instead they trade their teaching caps for thinking caps, and take on the role of a student once again.

Inequality, double standards still exist despite progress

Societal standards for both men and women have become a growing issue now in the day and age of social media and television. A man can run around with his shirt off, but if a woman does it, it becomes indecent. If a man cries, he’s a sissy, but if a woman does it she’s just a normal emotional woman. Men and women are held to such irritating social standards that aren’t fair to the opposite gender, it makes it hard to tell what’s exactly wrong or right.

Online classes sacrifice social interaction, creates lazy lifestyle

Online courses have become a popular alternative to physically attending class. This is good for some people like single working parents trying to go back to school, foreign students who can’t leave their country, or disabled students who have difficulty leaving their home. However, the common factor of laziness takes over many Americans in abusing […]

Generation of apathy finds difficulty in becoming adults

Throughout students years in grade school, they are usually asked what their goals and plans are after they graduate. Teacher usually ask the questions at the beginning of the year so the teacher can know more about the students. Many students will write that they want to be a doctor, a lawyer, a police officer, or any other profession they look up to, but as time gets closer to the end of the school journey into the real world, many have done nothing to take the next step into becoming what they say they have always wanted to be. It’s more something teens just say, instead of actually making an effort to do. Student apathy shines through in how they choose to do things daily, or rather how they choose not to do things.
