Palmore's Proposal

October 1, 2015

Stress is a problem. Teenagers hold the title of being the most stressed age group, and stress at such an early age can have dire effects on someone’s mental and physical health. One of the largest causes of stress for the student body is test taking. There are days where every core class has a test...

School is meant to be used as a learning institution. With school attacks like Columbine, a necessity for precaution within schools has developed rapidly. The number of unsecured access points into Rider cause the level of security within the school to drop dramatically. There has been a repeated...

A man risked his life and gave up his dreams by crossing the border on February of ‘98. He left his family, friends, a job, even his car, to experience the wonderful American Dream. A woman risked her life two months later, crossing the border. She left her family and risked so much just to live an...

One More High School Story

One More High School Story

Steven Garcia, Reporter

June 2, 2015

Let me tell you something about high school, but first keep this in mind: this might as well be a rant. I really didn’t learn anything from a book or doing a research paper. I did most of my learning outside of the classroom: -Who’s going to stick with you. -How to and how not to treat the...

“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

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

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...
