Stratford had a big change this school year. Our class schedule changed pretty drastically. Instead of our signature high school block schedule, we use a version closer to the middle school’s schedule. This has not been a popular change among some students and faculty.

Cheesy? Sure. But documentary made valid points The "Screenagers' documentary shown to students earlier this semester received mixed reviews, but most were negative.

Black history is always closer than you think. Sure, there are plenty of African-American  historical figures we can recite the names and stories of any day of the week.

From the beginning, I knew this was going to be a special season for the Georgia Bulldogs. Since September, I’ve spent my weekends cheering on the Dawgs. From Indiana to California and back home to the state of Georgia we watched the Dawgs play everywhere. On Monday, the season ended in a way t...

Scuba diving is one way to get up close and personal with aquatic life. But forgetting signals and techniques can make for quite a problem. Last year, my family took a trip to a resort in the Dominican Republic during Christmas break. When we got to the resort after a three-hour plane trip, we...

The major league baseball playoffs have a special meaning for me because I can watch three of the four teams on TV and reminisce the amazing and different ballpark experiences I had.
