Breaking Down Barriers

Breaking Down Barriers

May 15, 2019

Back in March, as the senior leadership within ASB was talking with Mrs. Watts, an idea was brought up surrounding graduation caps. The thought was as to whether we could decorate them or not, which our principal quickly responded with a “nope”. This caused some disappointment by those within the conversation...

Lunch-Time Problems

May 3, 2019

Is thirty minutes enough? That’s been a question to ponder since 2015, as we all arrived on campus to find that the hour-long lunch period we had hoped for had been axed. Instead we found two, 30-minute periods that were split and decided by 4th period teacher. So is this fair? To most of the st...

A Scientific Problem

April 17, 2019

In order to graduate, everyone needs to take a few science credits. Most students follow the basic path of biology, chemistry, and if they’re up to it, physics. However not everyone goes this route, as there are other options available. But the question is, are the options too diverse? If you ask most...

Does Color Wars Matter?

April 11, 2019

Last week the Prairie High School ASB ended off a week full of spirit with our yearly color wars assembly. Students far and wide donned their themed attire and took to the gym to battle it out, after a day full of skipping class to paint the rock and smack talking. But the question is, why does every...

Nowadays everything is available at the click of a button thanks to online retail. Anything you can imagine is just one keystroke away, from clothing to expensive faberge eggs. But is that always the best course of action? Now obviously, if you have a problem you typically like to fix it as quick...

Last Wednesday the entirety of the student body was blessed with some time out of class as speaker Jamie Winshop came and talked during our “Inspire Assembly”. However after the assembly, many students including myself were left dazed and confused. So what happened? First off, let me start this with this isn...

Are you the Change?

Are you the Change?

Lainne Wilkins, Opinion Writer

January 25, 2019

“Be the change you wish to see in the world”, I’m sure you have all heard this quote by Gandhi. Personally I believe this quote to be true in every aspect in life or quite frankly in whatever task you are faced with. The problem with people today is they rather sit and complain about something th...

A Second Thought

Jayson Maddux, Opinion Writer

January 18, 2019

Where do your values lie? I know, starting off with a generic and cliche question, how thoughtful. But really, think about it, what’s your answer? Do you care more about yourself or others? Selfish or selfless? Well honestly, you can’t be one or the other all of the time. Another question, what...

January 9, 2019

To begin the new year, I figured I would take my article in a direction that I know some people will be upset about. The fact of the matter is, it only proves my point further. Throughout my whole high school tenure, one thing has been apparent. People have been getting offended way too easily, and it...

Vaping: The Crown Juul of Teen Addictions

Jayson Maddux, Opinion Writer

December 20, 2018

Like many students, last week I received an email from a “do not reply” account. Few saw it, and even less actually opened it. But when I did, I immediately knew from the tone it was Mr. Drake behind the keyboard. What I didn’t expect however was for the message to be about the leading addicti...
