Lindsey Chadwick, Staff Writer

December 3, 2019

It has bugged me for the past year and almost a half that I have been at Robinson on the traditional side that IB kids get to stay in their homerooms every club day.

Early release is needed

Lindsey Chadwick, Staff Writer

November 5, 2019

Why did they take out early release days? Was it because we missed a day of school for the hurricane? If so, have we not made that up yet?

Greta Thunberg deserves to have a childhood

Greta Thunberg deserves to have a childhood

Amelia Foster, A&E Editor, Multimedia Editor

October 23, 2019

I can't talk about climate change right now without someone bringing up Greta Thunberg. Her face is everywhere, whether it's people supporting her for her radical policies or shoving her down for the very same. I'm not here to complain about people who don't like her, although I disagree, I'm here to...

Men need mental health too

Hanna Malone, Staff Writer

October 18, 2019

Men's mental health is being over looked and things have to change.
