It’s okay not to dress up

Anna Woodward, Online Managing Editor

October 13, 2019

I personally love dressing up for Spirit Week, but it wasn't until this year that I felt comfortable doing it. While I love it now, I can see why some people don't. The grade that I see dressing up the least is freshman, which is understandable once you talk to one of them. It's easy to get caught...

Say yes to dress

Lindsey Chadwick, Staff Writer

October 13, 2019

In past years, Robinson has had the tradition of holding spirit week before homecoming. However, this year was set up a little differently due to a couple complications. Since our school did not host the homecoming game the day before the dance, spirit week preceded the homecoming football game against...

October 6, 2019

You heard that correctly, the Bucs won. This past Sunday, the Bucs played against the Los Angeles Rams and won 55-40. With a record of two wins and two losses, it came as a shock that the Bucs won against the Rams. The Bucs handed the Rams their first loss of the season. This upset was completely...

Early release days are gone

Early release days are gone

Ella Wertz, News Editor

October 1, 2019

To make up for missed days and to make sure that students have enough hours in school Hillsborough County has decided to take away early release days. Early releases days were when students get out an hour early every Monday. The lack of these early release days messes up administrators, teachers,...

Peter Weber: the new Bachelor

Ava Hogan, Staff Writer

September 30, 2019

Peter Weber reminds me of a butterfly. He is so gentle and so kind and so caring. In this new season of The Bachelor, I worry his wings will be torn off. Weber (you may know him as Peter the Pilot) was one of the final three in the latest season of The Bachelorette starring Hannah Brown. He was kno...

Keep Traditional Spirit Days

Keep Traditional Spirit Days

Meena Vasquez, Senior Staff Writer

September 30, 2019

Over the years at Robinson we've had a lot of traditional spirit day themes. Some examples include: Respect Your Elders Wednesday, Throwback Thursday/Decades Day, and Twin Day. Many freshmen look forward to participate on these days but can't this year because these days got cut off from this year's...

Plastic straws aren’t the problem

Plastic straws aren’t the problem

Lindsey Chadwick, Staff Writer

September 25, 2019

The majority of people will know what I'm talking about when I say plastic straws can be considered a viral trend. After the viral video of a sea turtle getting a straw pulled out of his nose, the talk about plastic straws has been a controversial topic for environmentalists. It has been said that not...

Overpriced and Overstressed

Overpriced and Overstressed

Nicole Perdigon and Natalia McCalla

September 24, 2019

For years it’s been told and portrayed through movies and books the senior year is the year. The year to have fun, squeeze in the last memories you can, have a laid back school year, and look forward to your future. This image of the picture perfect senior year sets up students to expect these things. T...

Teachers should teach

Teachers should teach

Natalia McCalla, Senior staff writer

September 23, 2019

Why do teachers teach? From what I have seen throughout my years as a student I have seen many teachers who teach with no purpose. I have seen several teachers who receive their notes, classwork and test from other teachers online. Which I understand to a certain extent, sometimes you fall behind...

Dress code or Morse code

Ella Wertz, News Editor

September 17, 2019

Every school in Hillsborough county follows the same dress code. Everyone knows the rules: fingertip-length shorts and shoulders must be covered. Robinson has a pretty loose take on these policies; I mean who can even find fingertip length shorts now a days. With this, flexible interpretations of what...
