Molding A Dream By Crafting A Future

Molding A Dream By Crafting A Future

Maddie Box, Reporter

“So, what are you going to do with your life?” “I plan on attending the University of North Texas in the fall to study Speech Pathology.” I have heard this question hundreds of times since the beginning of this school year. I never knew after a measly 18 years of life that I would need...

Keep On Writing On

Keep On Writing On

Emily Carroll, Co-editor

June 2, 2015

I have written this goodbye a countless number of times and for some reason, I haven’t had that “YES” moment. That moment when you write something and think “This. Is. Gold.” I’ve come to the conclusion that I am not going to write a golden goodbye. But I’ve got to keep writing if I want...

World History Essential

Theresa Dhein, reporter

June 1, 2015

By making World History, a subject that broadens a student's mind, an elective class, WFISD makes an important decision for the next generation of students. Knowledge of other countries and their history is significant for understanding their cultures. Sure, it is very important to know about one’s...

Next year sophomore students will sit in their U.S. History class wondering where the world has gone. After removing World History as a required course, the district only offers the course as a 4.0 elective. Teachers and students stand concerned with this decision. If we don’t learn World History...

There is a need for organization within the school that allows students to know what is happening and when. Without a calendar, a schedule, or online source to find out, there is no way to inform both staff and students about school events. Without anything to tell students what’s going on, conflicting...

School Life Around The World

School Life Around The World

Every 1st of September my school year starts. It is always nice to see all the people you know and spend every day of every class with. That’s right. Unlike in America where you change your classes and classmates after every period, in Serbia you are with the same group of people for all four high school yea...

Climate change is knocking on our door and all we do is argue whether or not we hear the sound. Changes that happened since humans became “main characters” are so tremendous that every argument about our impact on wildlife and the planet should lead us to have just one, clear conclusion-we must change...

Bringing Baking Back

Bringing Baking Back

Kiersten Scott, Co-Editor

February 26, 2015

I have never seen, smelled or tasted a mini pear pie, and neither have the seven bakers on the Great British Baking Show. Still, during this technical challenge they have two hours to create a magnificent poached mini pear pie covered in layer-y marble-y rough puff pastry. The tension in the baking...

‘Chivalry Is Dead Because Feminism Killed It’

‘Chivalry Is Dead Because Feminism Killed It’

Emily Carroll, Co-Editor-in-Chief

February 13, 2015

"Chivalry is dead because feminism killed it." As I scroll through twitter, I see this tweet that puts me a little on edge. How does feminism kill a man's decision to be chivalrous? Unfortunately, it is because people claim to be feminists but instead mistake equal rights for power over and emasculation...

Digital Dilemma

Digital Dilemma

Kiersten Scott, Co-Editor-in-Chief

February 13, 2015

I see it in class every day. Students on their phones. Sometimes I wonder if I am the last left who still feels guilty for pulling out my phone to look something up or try to check my grades. This is wrong. School policy declares that devices must be off all day, but the moment I step into class it’s...

Isis Does Not Equal Islam

Isis Does Not Equal Islam

Alyssa Matthews, Reporter

February 11, 2015

ISIS is not a Muslim Terrorist group. They are just a cult of people who commit terroristic attacks in the name of, “Allah.” It is a shame that Islam, a religion whose followers are constantly judged as terrorists, is seen as a philosophy of violence and terror. Muslims do not deserve to be treated...
