Mercy Forrister, Reporter

December 6, 2019

Many People Would Agree Many people will agree with me when I say that the school dress code is unfair. Most of the rules only pertain to girls. Especially the one about shorts.

June Jung, Reporter

November 7, 2019

The book "What If" is a good favorite of mine. Not only does it hold a great sense of humor, it actually teaches you things that are interesting and helpful to know.
