Everyone is familiar with that loud, unapologetic tone that rings in the ears of students once it is time to get to class. The bell schedule means a lot of things to each individual - the heart-stopping and fear-inducing signal to the start of a class in which you have to present in front of everyone;...

Funny caveat: I almost didn’t come to RHS. I’d heard the rumours - Roseville High School, the school that must not be named. There were no specifics, just a general assumption that if I went to a school like Woodcreek, I’d receive a better high school experience and education guaranteed. And...

When I first received my beloved Wade, I was absolutely smitten. He was a “luxury” car, and by this I mean he was a luxury car from 2001. His green and silver tinted body was nothing short of luxurious, regardless of the little knicks and cuts adorning his fender. He had withstood 94,000 miles without...

A few weeks ago, students were asked to take the Equal Opportunity Schools survey in order to encourage more students to enroll in AP classes. I took this survey for the third time in my high school career. I took this survey -- which asked if I had plans to take AP courses -- while sitting in my...

Homecoming is, in many ways, the quintessential teenage experience, according to most of the teen dramas I’ve seen. The pre-dance photo-ops, the chance to dress up in fancy clothes, and the anticipation of the stifling hot air in the sticky gymnasium all come together to create an atmosphere of...

In the past, signing up for an AP class meant that I could expect to learn a great array of subjects in focused detail complete with a rigorous course structure. Now in my senior year, my experiences thus far in AP classes have definitely proved to be demanding—and dare I say, tedious,but not at all f...

Gender roles are a huge problem in our society, their appearances are no exception to our campus and they need to be broken. People will often excuse this problem by saying it’s “tradition”, but the world we live in is a world growing more mindful and open about others, regardless of these out...

TOWNSEND: Administration overlooks Suicide Awareness Month

September 25, 2018

Before beginning to write this article, I looked up when Suicide Prevention Month was so that I could get accurate information and be prepared to gather quotes, data, or anything else that might help my case. What I found and what completely derailed my train of thought, was that Suicide Prevention M...

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...
