Flight 93 Memorial Field Trip- A Personal Reflection

On September 20, Mr. Barton’s Current Issues class went to the Flight 93 Memorial, which was a great experience. This is an incredibly important field trip for years to come because it shows students the reality of what it was like to be on the flight and the reality of how bad the crash was. On September 11, 2001, Flight 93 crashed into a field in Shanksville, PA after it got hijacked by four Al Qaeda terrorists. The crash killed all 44 people that were on board which included the…

McDonald’s Vs. Subway

All fast food restaurants have at least some things in common. They get people their food quickly and most of the time, cost efficiently. I started working at the Subway in the Clark building in February of 2018. My time spent there was short, because I absolutely hated it. It was hectic and poorly run. I now work at the Breezewood McDonald’s. My personal experience working at McDonald’s has been far less stressful than my experience working at Subway. The businesses are run completely different. At Mcdonald’s, there is always…

Trash is Trash! Editorials 

Trash is Trash!

On last Friday’s Backyard Brawl home football game, the visiting audience left their stands and the surrounding area ruined. This act is absolutely disrespectful and rude to the hosting teams’ staff and community. To fix this issue, visitors should be required to pick up after themselves or an announcement should be made about picking up trash before the majority of people start to leave. Firstly, these solutions help make sure that the custodians for the night are not overworked. Secondly, this also shows the hosting school that visitors respect public…

Don’t Let Creativity Dye

Creativity is being limited in the sense of self-expression due to hair color options being restricted. This is a horrendous idea and should be removed from school systems everywhere. Hair color is a way for students to express themselves and be happy with who they are. If students are not happy with their image, they will be less likely to feel motivated in general. This can make school days sluggish and lower the general atmosphere of the school. In addition, the reason hair color is being restricted to natural colors…

Doing What’s Best or Making Us Stressed?

Recently there has been a serious increase in the required amount of work given to students after school. “Teachers assign about 3.5 hours of homework a week. For high school students who typically have five classes with different teachers, that could mean up to 17.5 hours a week for some students,” U.S. News says. While this may still seem like a normal amount, or preparation for college and work, when including all the extracurricular activities schools expect students to do, it is unhealthy for students to have this to deal…
