Each high school student begins five days of their week with the rubbing of eyes, the blare of an alarm clock, and an internal dismay. It’s a universal experience. Trapped in that state between the real world and dreams, our eyelids often weighed down by chains, we try to survive first period.   ...

One of the very first assignments I was given in my AP Government class was to read a set of provided documents and prepare to use them in a socratic seminar. The topic was not entirely related to American government - not even to Comparative government. It was instead focused around the question, ...

In the heat of the moment, Student Government “planned” a spirit week for the RHS vs WHS game. Not only was it planned very last minute, it was downright inappropriate and disrespectful. It’s quite obvious that there was no plan because Homecoming is in two weeks. It seems that it was plann...

Since my first day of freshman year, I have been handed three restroom passes per term in at least half my classes.When teachers hand them out, they bribe you with the possibility of extra credit. As a person with a relatively small bladder, this is an issue. I go to the restroom at least twice per scho...

From what I have experienced in my (almost) twelve years in academia, the dress code has always been an integral part of school policy—Roseville High School is no exception, considering the dress code remains a recurring issue between students and faculty. However, this year, RHS is experiencing a new...

The dress code has been an ongoing issue that has caused contention since middle school. Since then, the dress code has always been promoted as a way to make sure everyone is looking “appropriate”. In reality, this censorship predominantly towards girls is sexist— degrading girls to the basis of...

As far as I (and, I suspect, most high school students) are concerned, nothing beats the feeling of being able to leave the classroom following a long day at school. No matter whether you’re falling asleep in class, cooling off from a run, or dutifully working on an in-class essay, the loud ring o...

This year RHS decided to give freshmen and sophomores Chromebooks to keep throughout the next years they go here. Juniors and Seniors were specifically told that we would not get Chromebooks because the cut off year was the class of 2020 and that we would be able to utilize the existing Chromebook c...

Recently Roseville High School, or at least, the sidewalk in front of RHS, found itself hosting an anti-LGBTQ+ rights protester. But while I’d like to object and say that the sidewalk in front of a high school should not be considered “public” property, I think I’d rather save that argument for a...

Walking onto the campus of Roseville High for the first time since May, something felt off. It didn’t fully click with me until the second day of school; the first full length school day of the year. Walking through the campus, the familiar shade cast by certain trees was missing. It felt… bare, e...

Getting sick, attending a necessary appointment or seeing your kid’s performance or recital are all valid reasons people miss work. Teachers are people and they’re going to miss school for these reasons. This, alone, is not an issue. However, when these absences are compounded with days off for conferences,...
