OPINION: Food Here is Good

While most schools are notorious for never serving the greatest food, it is safe to say that our school has really made some improvements. Since the fall semester has started, I am one who has bought lunch almost every day. Although this doesn’t make me an expert of any sort, I think I have tried…

OPINION: Let’s Talk About Mental Health

Arguably one of the most controversial yet unspoken topics that our students are dealing with is mental health.       The current health services offered by our school only pertain to physical health and preventing the spreading of illness, according to the district website.

OPINION: Simply Sort to be Green

     Lunch is chaotic – a 45-minute time frame that goes by in a flash.
