Friday March 13 I was supposed to travel to Oklahoma City for my first dance competition of the season but instead I went through the drive through of chick-fil-a. My dance competition was canceled. This was also the same day Trump announced self quarantine for 15 days. The next week really flew by with home projects. I cleaned...

COVID-19: Stripped of a senior year

Bailey Hopkins, Editor

April 13, 2020

I, alongside 3.3 million highschool seniors, are being robbed of my senior year. The last day that Arkansas schools were in session was March 13th, 30 days before the seniors last day of school. Sure we had a countdown started. Saying things like “only 30 days left to go” and “30 days until we’re outta here”, but we n...

What Theatre Gave to Me

Emily Roberts, Reporter

April 8, 2020

As I reflect back on my years in high school, I remember days that I longed to get out of class, stretches of boredom, of stress, of excitement, friendships that have faded and others that have flourished, routine complaints of homework, unexpected pockets of genuine conversation at the lunch table, the zipping of backpacks...

Lauren Burgin, Design Editor

April 1, 2020

With the announcement that school would be switching to AMI days the week before spring break, I became extremely excited. The idea of staying home and doing work online was my dream come true. During AMI days I no longer have to wake up at seven in the morning. I now wake up at nine, and I usually don’t get out of bed u...

Vanity sizing takes toll on general health

March 13, 2020

Everywhere you look in today’s society you are baraded with weight loss plans. In the checkout line at the grocery store, magazines read headlines of “lose 30 pounds in three week!” and “fastest way to a hotter body”.

The title of this album is “This Is It and I Am It and You Are It and So Is That and He Is It and She Is It and It Is It and That Is That”.

Cheer Review

March 13, 2020

Most people don’t view cheerleading as a sport, but I am not one of those people. I can vividly remember sitting in my living room with my mom anticipating the next team to enter the stage at the NCA & NDA Collegiate Cheer and Dance Championship for at least seven years of my early life. When I first heard of a new documentary abou...

Why Homework

March 13, 2020

         The real question everyone asks has always been why do we have to do work at home when we have all day at school. Teachers shouldn’t have to give us work to take home when they have a whole class period to get everything they need done.  Studying at home is a different ball game. A class is moving too...


March 13, 2020

I think I speak for everyone when I say that Bong Joon-Ho’s monopoly on the 92nd Academy Awards was unprecedented and extraordinary if not disgruntling. A little part of me, I will admit, thought that the Academy was making up for not nominating a single person of color for most of its history: I thought they were being overz...

Jojo’s eighth part draws to a close

March 13, 2020

Over the many years that it’s been published JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure has gone through multiple parts, 8 to be exact, and I believe part 8: JoJolion is the best work to come from writer and artist Hirohiko Araki. Fans of the series may argue that the earlier parts or part 7 are the best parts. Part 3: Stardust Crusaders is t...
