In past class-specific dances such as Junior Prom and Senior Ball, a majority vote system has determined the theme of the dances. Student Government announced the theme unexpectedly this year, with it being “Enchanted Forest.” Sure, “Enchanted Forest” sounds enticing at first, but then I wondered...

Here’s a single, somewhat indisputable fact: RHS is a big school with a lot of students. This means it has many classes, activities, and extracurriculars, including the regular day-to-day things that get brought up through fliers, announcements, and word of mouth here and there. Student events and...

I will never forget my first ROAR buck, bestowed upon me after a French 1 presentation. Until that moment, I had no idea those orange slips of paper even existed. Let’s just say I got over this reward pretty fast. Something about the slip’s coined phrase, “RHS swag” took away any interest in...

I have heard from numerous adults throughout my 15 long years on this planet that patience is a virtue. And perhaps that is true, but it is not common for the average student to easily partake in that pastime they call “waiting.” Such impatience leads me to cry out “why not now?” but when that...

NGUYEN: College Rejection Letter

NATE NGUYEN

April 23, 2018

Dear College, I reviewed your freshman profile and I regret to inform you that you made an incorrect decision. I met and exceeded your GPA average and test scores, and I spent at least two hours a night perfecting my application. And yet, I was left disappointed in the spring. I am not the only...

LETTERS FROM A SENIOR: Find healthy friendships, let others go

April 23, 2018

Our friend group has virtually been the same since middle school, and we thought it would always be that way. SIKE! We were wrong. Now, don’t automatically assume that all of your friends will switch up on you, but it is important to look for the signs and realize who your real friends are. For...

Due to recent schedule changes regarding junior testing, senior olympics has been cancelled this year. Yes, you heard me, cancelled, not moved, not rescheduled but cancelled. Senior olympics is an event that us seniors have been waiting for since we were freshmen in high school, and now we no longer ge...

Inform students during lock-down

Inform students during lock-down

Without a doubt, anyone on the Roseville High campus this last Wednesday can attest to it being a day to remember. While we’ve heard that deceptively calming chime of the lock-down signal more often than not over the last few weeks, nothing quite gets people’s attention more than the message of ‘ale...

In the wake of student safety concerns brought about by recent local and national threats, Roseville High School is reevaluating its campus security. In taking progressive steps forward to ensure student safety, it is important to note the Campo Street alley remains a hole on campus, open to threats...

Send RHS emails to relevant recipients

March 20, 2018

Though I am more inclined to make use of my school email than the average high school student, if one were to judge me by the amount of unread messages I have wasting away in my inbox, I would likely be deemed a massively popular person. In reality, though I would like to nod my head and expound at...

Common core books inadequate guidance

ELENA BATEMAN

March 20, 2018

Throughout nearly any Roseville High School student’s career, they have most likely experienced the true horror behind the recently implemented Common Core learning standards. During its tenure, Common Core mandates that students explain every single nuance of their work and answers. Although the creators...
