School bathrooms aren’t porta poties

Trash cans are just one of the many dirty things in the bathroom.

Anna Woodward, Staff Writer

March 29, 2019

I can say with confidence that almost everyone at Robinson has gone to the bathroom, seen an insanely long line, sighed and, much to their dismay, waited because they had to. As a person who doesn't really like to use the school bathrooms unless I have to, it's simply annoying to go and have to wait...

Strawberry Festival and Florida State Fair are both staples of Tampa's culture. Watch Robinson's students decide which is better: the Strawberry Festival or the Florida State Fair?

Drop cards are going to the wrong students

Jack Kirk, Staff Writer

February 6, 2019

Robinson has a system where students who get honor roll during one grading period get a card to drop one assignment in three classes during the next quarter. Now call me crazy, but if you get honor roll, you probably do not need the extra boost in your classes. The kids who are close to honor roll but...

Hiring is a new coach is a smart move for the Bucs

Jack Kirk, Staff Writer

January 18, 2019

As an emotionally exhausted Bucs fan, I am relieved that they moved on from Dirk Koetter and signed Bruce Arians as their new head coach. It was time for a fresh start and Arians is perfect for the job. History shows that Arians can lead a team and produce wins, as he only had one losing season in...

A trip to Washington D.C. inspires Robinson journalist to keep dreaming, daring and doing

During the conference, we toured the USAtoday headquarters and heard from their top editors.

Macy McClintock, Sports Editor

December 2, 2018

When I was six, I decided I wanted to be a journalist. While others dreamt of careers as princesses and Broadway stars, I envisioned myself on the sidelines as a sports reporter. I had grown up watching Erin Andrews and Leslie Visser, two influential female sports broadcasters who helped establish women’s...

Opinion: Club days are trivial and a waste of time

Opinion: Club days are trivial and a waste of time

Jack Kirk, Staff Writer

November 27, 2018

Once a month, Robinson High School decides that the first Monday does not matter, so we have a club day. I feel that club days are the biggest waste of time that the school partakes in. We should just have a normal day and completely forget that club days ever existed. The most senseless part of club...

Veterans Day, I’ve never heard of that

Ella Wertz, Staff Writer

November 12, 2018

Many students are oblivious to things happening in our country on a governmental, social, and environmental level. But, there are some things that are too important to be neglected. On Wednesday, I went around to several students and teachers at Robinson to interview them regarding their opinion on...

No one cares until there’s a tragedy

No one cares until there's a tragedy

Anna Woodward, Staff Writer

October 31, 2018

It's impossible to go throughout your day without hearing something offensive, especially in high school. Ever since I can remember, I've heard people make holocaust jokes, gay jokes, and school shooting jokes like they were nothing, then brush them aside, until another shooting happens and they post...

This isn’t special treatment, it’s equality

Robinson's elevator

Amelia Foster, A&E Editor

October 1, 2018

I'm an average student. I get good grades, I take an elective, and I try in school; the only difference is that I happen to have a heart disease. When I was born I was diagnosed with a life-long heart disease, and since then a dozen other things have been added on top of that diagnosis. Because of my...

Annotations are a key to understanding

Amelia Foster, A&E Editor

September 24, 2018

Going through any Robinson hallway, you'll hear IB students gripe about the amount of annotations they have to do. The constant complaints have created a layer of fear and general distaste towards such a simple act as annotations. When living in such a negative state of mind you'll only ever be able...
