ROAR period is a great opportunity to catch up on some work, study for an upcoming test, or catch a 30 minute nap. However, it has strict guidelines that make it difficult to enjoy for people who have nothing to do. I see most of my friends for half an hour every day during school. That’s it. I g...

The sun is shining. The birds are chirping. It’s a beautiful day. And I’m locked in a pasty testing room with a broken AC, my eyes burning, my mind whirling from convoluted test questions. I’m tired. I’m hungry. I woke up at 5 a.m. because the closest available testing center was an hour from...

PIEDAD: Graduation move benefits outweigh sentiment

May 29, 2020. The conditioned breeze drifts by the black gowns of this year’s seniors, another generation ready to take a step into real life. There’s wind outside the building, but it’s not the refreshing kind. After all, summer’s beginning and only a fool would sit around under the sun covered...

For 107 years, Roseville has taken pride in its wonderful and honorable traditions that give the school its character and uniqueness. But this year, after 107 years of being at a school which honors tradition, my graduating class will no longer have the opportunity to walk across Hanson field to receive...

As a junior here at RHS, I’d say I’m a veteran in the world of bus riding. From morning routes, to route-changes, I’ve seen it all. I’ve pretty much ridden the bus almost everyday since my freshman ear and the most prominent thing that has stood out to me is the lack of organization and care. It...

Roseville’s campus is known for a lot of things, its complicated network of classrooms and its unique campus culture; Roseville is unarguably an entity to be reckoned with. However, as of last Spring, Roseville welcomed a new (and, some would say, unwelcome) guest.  You are walking from the ...

You’ve never owned a desktop computer in your life. Or you did, but it’s an old box that ran Windows XP which you’re sure was put together before you were even born. So how convenient was it when everyone in your class got a Chromebook⁠⁠—the luxury of at home access to the internet not ...

With construction of the auxiliary gym beginning, there was bound to be some intrusion on campus. All talk of it has been mostly positive, even from me, and I’m glad that we’re getting new facilities. I was actually jealous of Antelope and Oakmont getting their new facilities before us. But now...

Most students of Roseville High School have, or will have, a school Chromebook, and most students of Roseville High School know that these Chromebooks are extremely restricted on which sites they can visit. Now, I understand why we block sites like Netflix and game sites, as those can often be a distraction...

Dear Lake Roseville, Oh how I’ll miss you. In truth I didn’t even get to say goodbye. You were all dried up the last day I walked through the staff parking lot with a camera and a source, trying to find a place to escape the noise of construction workers putting up fences. Alas, I could not, and...

Juniors just wrapped up the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), that seemingly meaningless standardized testing that finds new ways to make students feel worse about themselves. Now all sophomores, juniors and seniors are preparing for the California Science Test (CAST),...
