During the start of the school year I was contacted by Sarah Gebhard about a mural project at South Lebanon Elementary School. They had been looking for someone to make their idea come to life because the teachers involved were too busy to accomplish it on their own.

I took the opportunity and accepted the task to paint for them. I got in contact with Jennifer Gemundt, a 5th grade teacher who was ecs...

One of the easiest things for people miss, or even intentionally skip, is breakfast. Breakfast is, as the saying goes, the most important meal of the day.

Breakfast has been proven to be very benefi...

Many people dream of traveling and shopping in different parts of the world. This November, I traveled to Tuscany, Italy and experienced the Italian fashion scene.

This region is known for its beautiful countryside and rows upon rows of stores. Each day, I toured and shopped my way through a new city.

A large number of the students who purchase class rings are seniors, many of whom are going to begin the expensive jo...

It is no secret that people all over the world love meat. In the US especially, meat is often eaten in excess.

As much as individuals and society itself enjoy beef, pork, chicken and other meats, that does not change the fact that people could do with less of it.

Meat, as it turns out, is not efficient as an energy source, as animals have their own body processes to run, meaning not all their food becomes edible meat.

Applying to college is one of the most daunting tasks facing high school students and perhaps one of the most stressful, but it does not need to be.

I have already had experience with the college application process, as I applied to colleges through a scholarship organization called Questbridge this September. Questbridge gives full scholarships to high-achieving students from low-income backgrounds to...

Of the many changes implemented this year, the newest one to land is the addition of student IDs. Both students and staff will be required to wear them, with the accompanying lanyards or clips.

Student held hall passes are now a thing of the past. The system to leave classes has now been totally overhauled, and is going to affect everyone involved, from students to teachers.

The changes consist of students not carrying their own personal hall passes, but instead will receive passes from teachers. These passes will be given back to the teacher upon return, and also paired with sign-out sheets.
