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.

Lounging by the pool, sleeping in until noon, sunsets at the beach: these are all things associated with summer. One thing that is not usually associated with summer is volunteering.

Over the summer, seniors Serena Cheng, Hallie Koslowski, junior Audra Pundt and sophomore Kobain Dundore volunteered at several events helping the community. These students contributed to activities benefitting locals in...

Students in Spanish, German, Latin, and French classes all traveled together, leaving June 27 and returning July 10. They were accompanied by 21 students from 2 other schools in the US.

From start to finish, “The Darkest Minds” knows how to push all the audience’s buttons. Viewers are swept up in the emotions of the characters, from joy to anxiety.

All children in the United States develop a mysterious disease, and the 10% that survive develop extraordinary psychic powers. The protagonist is Ruby Daly, played by Amandla Stenberg (“The Hunger Games,” 2012, “Everything, Everything,” 2017...

While many albums can be difficult to listen to, listeners can “know” right away that Jason Mraz’s latest album is an easy, fun listening experience.

“Know.” opens with “Let’s See What The Night Can Do,” which opens with Mraz’s traditional guitar instrumental and soft vocal. As it progresses, however, an entire orchestra and backup vocals are introduced, seeming to surround the listener.

Although she is known for her soaring, soulful vocals, Ariana Grande moves away from this vocal style in her new album “Sweetener.”

She replaces her typical vocal style with breathy and somewhat clipped vocals, which can be found throughout the album, most notably in the songs “The Light is Coming (feat. Nicki Minaj)” and “Sweetener.”
