¨Would you like to buy a box of cookies?¨ asks millions of American Girl Scouts every day during cookie season. However, although seemingly innocent, Girl Scouts seem to have a hypocritical side.
Don´t get me wrong, I´m not saying that Girl Scouts are negative or anything. However, there are a few very exclusive things about Girl Scouts that makes it hard to wrap my head around.
That’s right. I´m talking about gender; the word that has quite possibly cut America in half. Girl Scouts, as said in the name, is a program for girls in which they participate in activities like camping, fundraising, and of course, cookie selling.More…

Let’s talk about ‘C’ students. They aren’t totally sold on the academic system. They don’t worship it, but they see a great deal of good that can come from it. They know that learning occurs in different ways than the system presents.
Our world has dramatically changed since the late 1800s. During that time, schools were designed to teach obedience. According to Lifehack.com, it states that by 2020, more than one billion people will be working from their homes.
This works for ‘C’ students. ‘C’ students usually think for themselves and make up their own agenda without having someone else tell them how to live their lives. ‘C’ students don’t spend enormous amounts of energy trying to impress their superiors. Instead, they are more strategic about how they spend their time. More…

Some students in Mr. Mitchell´s class seem to notice that he always puts his chin on his hand. This may seem normal, but what we have found is very, very unusual.More…

On January 4th, 2019, an unknown Instagram user decided to post a picture of a brown egg. Everyone was talking about it, wondering why someone would do this in the first place. But when they read the caption, all was explained. Of course, eggs are just an everyday breakfast food- but breakfast had nothing to do with this.
It all started when Kylie Jenner posted a picture of her five-day-old baby, Stormi Webster, on February 6th, 2018. The post was created to announce the baby’s name to her 123 million followers and fans. With everyone adoring the picture of the baby holding her mother’s thumb while asleep, it had the most likes on Instagram- over 18 million.
Almost a year later, the unknown Instagram user posted the picture of the egg; and all to prove a point. The caption read, “Let’s set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram. Beating the current world record held by Kylie Jenner (18 million)! We got this.” More…
Now, Ms. Walters is a favorite among the many Language Arts teachers here, as well as Journalism. However, there is something very peculiar about her that she isn’t quite telling us. The Journalism Investigative Team have come back again and found so many strange things that not even the world could explain. Now sit back, relax and eat a snack (that is healthy).
Is Ms. Walters Secretly a Horse?
Ms. Walters, if you are reading this, we don’t mean this in a mean way. Ms. Walters once mentioned that she was a veterinarian nurse before becoming a teacher. She also has several horse pictures inside her classroom. Everyone who has heard her read The Outsiders knows that she has a nice accent. We asked and she has clarified that she has a horse. While that may explain where that horsey smell comes, has anyone considered that she might actually BE a horse herself?
Now, this may sound strange, but Ms. Walters could very well be a centaur which is half horse half human. However, instead of being half and half, she might be able to control it so that she could shapeshift back and forth from a horse and a human. It all makes sense now, doesn´t it?More…
