Quiet is not a crime

Adeline Davis, Backpage Editor

January 30, 2014

When did being quiet become socially unacceptable? Last time I checked, the loudmouths of the class are the ones who crack inappropriate jokes or get themselves into trouble. Yet, our society still views gregarious people as being more enjoyable and prosperous- when in fact, some of our most successful...

Snack Attack

Haley Gaeser, Lifestyles Editor

January 28, 2014

When I am in class and am trying to learn, there are multiple things that keep me from doing so. I could be exhausted, annoyed or sometimes I may just not be in the “school mood” but when I hear what seems to be a beaver gnawing on wood right next to my ear, the last thing I want to do is focus on...

Sleepy Moon Café not worth the travel

Jessica Jeffers, Opinions Editor

December 9, 2013

After a long drive towards Winter Park you end up at an old strip mall, and nestled into the side of the building, a small chalkboard sign greets you with “Sleepy Moon Café” written in pink chalk, adding to the small business feel. Unlike other cafés, Sleepy Moon offers free coffee refills,...

Oblivious to the injured

Haley Gaeser, Lifestyles Editor

December 5, 2013

The injured. They are everywhere. Everywhere I look, there they are, and now, what is worse is that I have become one. Being injured is not fun. Students don’t care if you are injured, as they still feel the need to run into you wherever you go: the stairs, the hallway, the parking lot. You name...

Anonymous Ask.Fm has serious consequences

Adeline Davis, Back Page Editor

November 12, 2013

The typical bully used to be characterized as a hulking kid who pushed people around on playgrounds and stole lunch money. However, with the dawn of social media, bullies can no longer be pegged by their glares or threatening fists. Up until the creation of Ask.fm, bullies  attacked their victims face...

Students Rely on Teachers

Madison Garr, Staff Reporter

November 6, 2013

Imagine reading the stats of a baseball game three weeks after its already happened. The importance and relevance no longer applies. The same applies for teachers imputing students grades, they should be done promptly. To keep up with  grades students have Skyward, an online grade book accessible by...

Bathroom missteps

Haley Gaeser, Lifestyles Editor

November 6, 2013

When it comes to awkward moments in high school, walking into the wrong bathroom tops the list. There is already so much that teachers and administration expect students to do, and having to know which bathroom your gender goes in makes everyone’s lives even more stressful. When using the restroom,...

Awkward moments on the stairs

Haley Gaeser, Lifestyles Editor

October 7, 2013

The stairs are the highways of the high school. It is the gateway into class and when travelling up them, some people just are not smart. Texting is important. I get it, because I like to text as well, but there is a time and a place to do so-the stairs not being one of them. Not only is texting addictive...

Society Misconceptions

Adeline Davis, Back page Editor

October 3, 2013

Whenever I go to the mall, I dread walking past the Victoria’s Secret signs. Not only does it portray an unrealistic image of what girls really look like, but I start to feel bad that I’m not 5 foot 11 with perfect hair and a flawless body. However, when I stop to think about it, not many girls have...
