December 14, 2015

Filed under Opinion

  BY NATALIE TRAN [email protected] Everyone nowadays feel the pull of our cell phones and the urge to get updated. Almost every facet of our lives is connected to our phones in some respect and this need to check it makes sense. This becomes a larger problem, though, when we are more concerned with “capturing the moment” with our phones instead of actuall...

MULLIGAN: Road construction could solve common alley traffic problem

December 14, 2015

Filed under Opinion

BY JOHNNY MULLIGAN [email protected] Attending a school that is over 100 years old makes it easy to understand why the parking and traffic situation around school is horrible. There is almost no flow to the senior lot and having parents picking up their students further exacerbates the problem. The most problematic but crucial, part of this troubled system...

BASSARAB: Time to move past physical textbooks

December 14, 2015

Filed under Opinion

BY ALBINA BASSARAB [email protected] It has come to really bother me coming home each day to a pile of textbooks gathering dust and knowing how pointless they really are. For about half of my classes, most textbooks are hardly touched throughout the school year. Some of them are far outdated, too, which obviously can teach false or outdated lessons, which is likely...

SCHMITTNER: Handle kids in class rather than the office

November 9, 2015

Filed under Opinion

BY KADEN SCHMITTNER [email protected] Whenever I see a kid get in trouble in class for arguing, breaking the classroom rules, or distracting others, they almost always just get sent up to the office for admin to deal with. What I’m not sure is if those handing out the punishments realize that being sent to the office is exactly what most of these kids w...

RHODE: Uphold professionalism while working at school

November 9, 2015

Filed under Opinion

BY HUNTER RHODE [email protected] Everyone sees high school differently, but despite the different views on how you ultimately want your high school experience to be, everyone is working toward the same goal - graduation. When someone tells you that high school flies by, they aren’t wrong. If I were to reflect on my four years at Roseville High School, I woul...

November 9, 2015

Filed under Opinion

Roseville Joint Union High School District’s changing attitude toward bolstering an atmosphere of cultural acceptance is a step in the right direction, but it shouldn’t be the last. In late October, the district launched the first of a series of speakers on “sustaining culture” and “strengthening community” and proposed the formation of a standalone policy as a...

MAILEY: Administration response to fight videos justified

November 9, 2015

Filed under Opinion

BY SAM MAILEY [email protected] It’s so easy to document our lives, but this isn’t necessarily a good thing. Phone cameras are convenient for capturing spur-of-the-moment events – a baby’s first words, unexpected celebrity sightings, school fights.  For life’s spontaneity, technology has our bac – wait, did I include school fights in that list? Yes....

MULLIGAN: District subs need greater evaluation

November 9, 2015

Filed under Opinion

BY JOHNNY MULLIGAN [email protected] Usually when your teacher says there will be a substitute teacher the next day, you get excited because you can expect the next day to be fairly easy – chances are you’ll spend the period watching the movie with the substitute barely looking up from the computer screen. However, there are always those names that you h...

Filed under Opinion

BY MADDY FURDEK [email protected] Last Tuesday, the annual day-long club yearbook photo marathon took place in the Patti Baker Theater as hundreds of club members filled in and out throughout the day to get their club picture taken. Cramming all 41 organizations on campus into one day seems confusing enough in itself, but this year it became even more strenuou...
