School is designed to make us hate it. I know this because when I enter the building each morning, it’s quiet with people scattered throughout the cafeteria and booths. This may sound calming, but we students are separate but not equal. Walking by the junior high hallway, I see—at most—one o...

I would sit in Ms. Snyir’s class anxiously waiting for the announcement that would signify my leaving.  When we would get to Crossroads Community Ch...

Kaitelyn Walker, Staff Reporter

November 14, 2019

We don’t get a say.  We don’t have a voice.  As a student, I feel overlooked and left out of the decisions that directly affect me. Don’t you? This year, I’ll be tackling the issues, policies and decisions that directly affect us as students, yet left us out of the process. It fe...
