It’s second semester and we are all moving a little slower and procrastinating a little longer. These symptoms are typical in seniors who have contracted senioritis. But are seniors the only ones noticing a slump in their post-spring break work ethic? No way. Senioritis has spread and students o...

Seniors leave for college. Juniors have more rights next year. Foreign exchange students go back home. Everything changes. This year I was a German foreign exchange student at South. It is amazing to experience exactly one year of high school. American students grew up with expectations of high scho...

  The game is called assassins. At Shawnee Mission South we are not allowed to call the game the game that, so the seniors all call it Gotcha.  Everyone is running around screaming “got you.”  Gotcha is a fun, stressful and exciting tradition that seniors look forward too all year. With...

Long representative of the rowdy, spirited student body, Crowd Control has led the student section through chants and cheers during games for years.

The feeling of your heart dropping, or maybe it was a beat... Anyway, when you’re favorite artist releases a new single, or even worse, and entire album, it's startling. Just think of some of the artists to do this today: Beyonce. Need I saw more? No, Beyonce is all we need. Continuing on. The day Beyonce rele...

A day in a Catholic High School. At a first glance, St. James was nothing more than a school with 800 kids. To think about South, with only 800 students gives me the chills. With our crowded hallways and the chaotic parking lot, imagining South any other way than the South we know, we be unheard of...

So this month, I made homemade lemon bars. A lot. Actually since school started, I’ve made four different 9x13 pans of lemon bars. I love almost any lemon food, lemon cookies, pie, lemon cake--I blame my love of Sansa Stark playing into that. There are mixes and shortcuts to make lemon bars, but I always u...

Being vegetarian or vegan is becoming more and more popular among teens these days.  Reasons for these dietary changes range from supporting the environment to just seeing it as a “trendy” thing to do.  It would make sense that lunch options at school would cater towards that growing lifestyle...

According to civicyouth.org, 21.5 percent of young adults ages 18-29 vote. This means that we as young adults are not being represented at the voting booth, so our ideals and opinions are not being expressed through the government. This is no fault but our own.
