Filed under Letter from the Editor

Seeing from both points of view on a topic is almost always difficult. I struggle with it myself, but I try to stick with my morals when it comes down to it. For example, if one of your moral baselines is that you value life, than there are technically many things you would likely need to change abo...

Coming back from winter break, we had a “Naviance day,” where instead of working on classwork or getting teacher assistance from other classes, we were required to work on the “college and career readiness” website, Naviance.

Making your voice matter

By Stephi Smith, Executive Editor

October 26, 2016
