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...

“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...

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...

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. That’s when Sunday afternoon I was scrolling through Twitter and kept seeing posts with a negative tone. As I kept swiping, more and more were popping into...

Because of its status as a graduation requirement, most of us have taken a PE class at Prairie. Whether it be SST, Health & Fitness, or even Bodywise, the common student has taken at least 3 semesters of active classes or plans to do so. However, notice my use of the word “common” for a moment....

On the night of Tuesday, November 13th I boarded a plane bound for Spokane to attend the Washington State School Directors’ Association (WSSDA) Annual Conference. To be transparent, I fully expected to be bored out of my mind as I sat through meeting after meeting, waiting for the following Friday when I...

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...
