VARLAMOV: “Why didn’t you go at lunch?”

VARLAMOV: “Why didn’t you go at lunch?”

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...

EFSTATHIU: Dress code complaints unfounded

EFSTATHIU: Dress code complaints unfounded

DEAN EFSTATHIU

September 11, 2018

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...

JEFFERIES: Standing up against dress codes

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...

JEFFERIES: Upperclassmen receiving Chromebooks leads to frustration

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...

TOWNSEND: Landscaping takes the “Rose” out of Roseville High

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...

EYE OF THE TIGER’S VIEW: Absenteeism not just a student issue

EDITORIAL BOARD

May 14, 2018

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,...

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

NICOLE KHUDYAKOV

May 14, 2018

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...

LETTERS FROM A SENIOR: Avoid the senior void

JACK ROSETTI

May 14, 2018

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...
