Mackenzie Packer, Assistant Photo Editor

November 28, 2016


Filed under OPINION

NO Homework is a part of school no matter what, but there comes a point where it is unnecessary and counterproductive. If students go to school for seven hours and have two plus hours of homework once they get home, many kids will feel unmotivated to keep working on their schoolwork. Excessive...

YES After a long day of school, the last thing a student wants to do is homework; however, despite how dreadful it is, it is very beneficial to complete. Away from the distraction of friends and the school environment, students can focus on and review the instruction that was given in class. Applying...

Lindsay Guthrie, Senior                 If I were in charge, I would change the school’s no phone policy. Rather than having a strict policy where phones aren’t supposed to be seen in school, I would let it be up to the teachers to decide wheth...

Filed under OPINION

Most people that use the school parking lot would agree that changes need to be made, because it is very hard to get in and out of the lot in a timely manner.  Over the course of the summer, changes were made but they were not what most people were expecting, or hoping for.  The district changed the...

PHONE POLICY

October 3, 2016


Filed under OPINION

This year’s new cell phone policy seems excessive, and too strict. The policy claims students are not allowed to have their cellphones out during class hours, even if you are in the hallway, the only time they’re allowed is during lunch or passing periods. In the prior years, each classroom has h...
