BENNETT: Teacher appreciation week calls for respect

BENNETT: Teacher appreciation week calls for respect

DANIELLE BENNETT

May 14, 2018

My heart melts a little at the concept of Teacher Appreciation Week. Not to be overdramatic, but I have so much respect for those teachers that dedicate unrequired amounts of time to forming as effective a lesson plan as possible or make the effort to truly be there to help a student through school and...

Student bathroom quality, quantity insufficient

Student bathroom quality, quantity insufficient

For a school with over 2,000 students running around on a daily basis, our bathrooms have held up very well. No, really. They have. I have seen some truly disgusting bathrooms. I know exactly what they look like, and the ones we have at RHS are luxurious by comparison. Realistically, we should all...

In all of my years on this planet, I have never heard a more fallacious argument than that of “It’s senior year; you should just go” or something to that effect. Primarily, it pertains to the concept of regret – what we could have done with our fickle time in high school. While it may hold...

I’m not going to offer any sweeping senior advice about how to be the best you can be in high school, nor will I offer the secrets of life or the meaning of the universe. Instead, in light of the many changes in Roseville High School’s curricular dynamic that occured this year, I will give what...

Sober Grad: Seniors offer differing opinions

JAMIE BATEMAN and COLTON RAYBACK

Better options available Every year, seniors debate whether or not they want to pay the hefty price of $100 to attend Sober Grad Night after graduation. While the premise of Sober Grad – saying one last goodbye to all of your classmates before you inevitably go your separate ways – is great, the pric...

SB theme choice lacks democracy

SB theme choice lacks democracy

In past class-specific dances such as Junior Prom and Senior Ball, a majority vote system has determined the theme of the dances. Student Government announced the theme unexpectedly this year, with it being “Enchanted Forest.” Sure, “Enchanted Forest” sounds enticing at first, but then I wondered...

Next year, Roseville High School will distribute Chromebooks to freshmen and sophomore classes for at-home and in-class use. In two years, every student at RHS will possess a school-owned device due to the revolutionary district initiative, Digital Equity in Learning. This initiative aims to expand...

Here’s a single, somewhat indisputable fact: RHS is a big school with a lot of students. This means it has many classes, activities, and extracurriculars, including the regular day-to-day things that get brought up through fliers, announcements, and word of mouth here and there. Student events and...

I will never forget my first ROAR buck, bestowed upon me after a French 1 presentation. Until that moment, I had no idea those orange slips of paper even existed. Let’s just say I got over this reward pretty fast. Something about the slip’s coined phrase, “RHS swag” took away any interest in...

I have heard from numerous adults throughout my 15 long years on this planet that patience is a virtue. And perhaps that is true, but it is not common for the average student to easily partake in that pastime they call “waiting.” Such impatience leads me to cry out “why not now?” but when that...

NATE NGUYEN

April 23, 2018

Dear College, I reviewed your freshman profile and I regret to inform you that you made an incorrect decision. I met and exceeded your GPA average and test scores, and I spent at least two hours a night perfecting my application. And yet, I was left disappointed in the spring. I am not the only...

April 23, 2018

Our friend group has virtually been the same since middle school, and we thought it would always be that way. SIKE! We were wrong. Now, don’t automatically assume that all of your friends will switch up on you, but it is important to look for the signs and realize who your real friends are. For...
