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...

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...

Coming into this week, I was completely out of ideas for an article. I kept asking around to no avail, trying to find something to write about.

I love Prairie. That is why I have chosen to participate in sports, attend almost every event, and even run as student body president. I am proud of my school and what it represents. I see our school as being inclusive and less cliquey compared to other schools. I guess I am biased because being presi...

  Prairie High School’s tardy policy is one that is both liked and disliked by a wide range of people. Once a student has reached 10 tardies, they are issued a detention slip. On one hand, teachers can use tardies as a way to keep track of their students and hold them accountable for showi...
