DUGGER: Seniors deserve parking spots

DUGGER: Seniors deserve parking spots

If you are a Roseville High student, you can agree that the parking options for students at Roseville High School are far and few between. Berry street, the senior lot, and the small dirt lot are the only few close options for the hundreds of students who drive to school every day. Unlike teachers,...

From district assessments and performance tasks to AP exams and the SAT, in high school there is no escaping the claws of assessments with time constraints. These ticking time bombs test our mathematical reasoning, reading comprehension, writing ability, and a multitude of other facets of our educational...

In my combined one and a quarter years of high school, and the infinite wisdom that I’ve come to inherit in spades as a result, I’ve come to learn this: extra credit is exactly like Tinder. Now, allow me a chance to explain myself. If you were to encounter extra credit on Tinder, it would be an...

At the beginning of the year, we as students, found out that four Tuesdays this year will end at 1:45 p.m, the traditional end time for Mondays, on weeks that we have Monday off for holidays. The time taken off from those particular Tuesdays will give our teachers more collaboration time to get things...

This year, Student Government announced that the Sadie Hawkins dance will return to Roseville High School, taking the place of all outdoor dances. While some students might mourn the loss of the outdoor dances, I believe the sacrifice is definitely worthwhile. Student government’s decision to add Sadie’s...

I would begin with “Big Brother is Watching,” but I’m afraid that is far too cliché, and currently rings inaccurate, seeing as, at present, the recently installed security cameras cannot even claim that feat. After years of talk about implementation, and some instances of vandalism that confused...

Before the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I playoff volleyball tournament even began, it was decided that Whitney High School would host the championship game. When announced, this upset people because the Wildcats made it into the tournament and would host the championship game if they were to get there. I’m...

This year’s students’ ROAR experiences varied as they were the first to see the implementation of the intervention period. The period was designed to give an extra 30-minutes to students who need to catch up on work, study or to hear their teachers clarify curriculum. However, exploitation of...

Two weeks ago the Class of 2017 planned a prank week where they would commit a new prank everyday. All of the pranks were designed to be harmless. We only got through two days before admin brought the hammer of justice down on the seniors, threatening disciplinary actions for the prank that occurred...

They get new workout equipment donated, they get rallies, they receive huge outpours of support from students and they benefit from general fanaticism. Sports – namely football – are a staple in any Roseville student’s diet of social happenings. Athletes no doubt work hard to succeed, but the...

EDITORIAL BOARD

While Roseville High School’s decision to cancel the Every 15 Minutes program seems counterintuitive at first glance, the program’s effects waned in recent years – its dismissal presents an opportunity to introduce a more timely, impactful replacement. A quick contradiction: the Center for Disease...

DOM TAYLOR

I would just like to start out by setting the record straight here and now: I do appreciate all that student government does to put on rallies for the school. I go to them, participate in them, and generally enjoy them. I fully understand the work, effort and planning put into the creation of the rallies. However,...
