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...

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,...

As a former Integrated Math student, I can understand how strenuous and often confusing the classes can be.

It’s the beginning of the formation of superteams in California high school athletics. The California Interscholastic Federation’s majority decision to allow student-athletes to transfer to high schools for athletically-motivated purposes is a recipe for disaster. Transfer athletes no longer have...
