What is love? No matter your personal opinion, don’t ask a high school student for a definition. Why? Because none of them know, or at least they don’t show that they do in their relationships. High school relationships are a huge part of what is wrong with this generation. In high school, relationships... Read more »

Irked and overworked

Mikayla Kwek, Reporter

You’ve seen the chart. The one where you have to pick two out of three: good grades, a social life, or sleep? With school until 3 p.m, homework in almost every class, and often work until 10 p.m, I don’t have free time. After work I spend my nights drowning in homework or collapsing right when I... Read more »

This time of year, when holiday music is inescapable and people are busy slapping each other in the face with supposed holiday cheer, I realize just how much I hate the holidays. It wasn’t always like this. I too used to enjoy the holiday season. Yet as I grew older it became more and more apparent... Read more »

Something about the holiday season separates it from the rest of the year.

The event has become tired and routine; instead of being excited to choose candidates many students are indifferent. This year a new idea was introduced. The... Read more »

It would be good for Chanute High school to have a formal homecoming because it would give our students a chance to socialize with new people, make new friends, have fun and dress up while they’re at it. Even though school just started, we can have plenty of good times together. Homecoming is a time... Read more »

Formal homecoming: con

Homecoming: when most hear this word, they think of making memories, having fun with friends, and just having a great time. I think the most common misconception about homecoming is that the dance is NOT equivalent to prom. In fact, prom and homecoming are two totally separate entities. Prom is a magical... Read more »

Shout it out!

October 5, 2017

We asked the students what was on their mind. Here are their unfiltered responses:   “Why do the toilets splash water all over the seat?” “Can we make school lunch better?” “The government should make bridges for turtles to cross the road.” “McDonald’s... Read more »

Falling for autumn

October 5, 2017

Fall is approaching and I am quite excited. So many good things come with the season. With the new season coming, there are many new horror films. Stephen King’s “It” is a fan favorite, but also out now are the movies “Annabelle: Creation”, “Rings”, and other thriller movies like “Alien:... Read more »
