  All throughout high school, it is embellished in our minds that the skills we are taught will prepare us for the rest of our adult lives. Sure, turning in assignments on time and  having to maintain a GPA teaches us responsibility, but our future depends on much more than our ability to complete a...

With the holiday season upon us once again, festive morale is at an all time high.

Parents...

BY: KALEB SCHUPPNER, EXECUTIVE EDITOR Naturally, boundaries are pushed each day. Whether it’s a teenager rebelling against their parent, or an employee sticking it to their boss, things can get heated in an organized setting.

BY KALEB SCHUPPNER, Executive Editor Imagine a school day with no technology: no Google to research those precious primary source documents for U.S. History, no thesaurus.com to improve that research paper in English, and no iPhones to “look something up” in the middle of a tedious lecture. In a society that’s focused so heavily ...

Spontaneous road trips, endless hours of freedom, concerts, and trips to the beach are now being replaced by pop quizzes, structured time, athletic events, and homework. This can seem daunting, or it can be seen as an opportunity; a cleansing of the perhaps tedious, overwhelming, or lengthy summer we...

Schedule change is challenging all of us

September 26, 2012


Filed under Editorials, Opinion

BY CLAUDIA TOVAR, Editor I am not in favor with the new schedule because it brings chaos to the hallways every day. On the block schedule we had four classes every day. Now, we have eight.

By Diana Nuno, Executive Editor Everything changes, and that’s just the way life is. Especially in high school. People get taller, voices get deeper, and cliques are formed and destroyed. Some of us have adjusted by now, some of us aren’t sure how, and some of us don’t know any other way becaus...

Juniors are being prepped for the ACT, the test that will determine students’ college acceptances, and in some cases, the amount of scholarship money a college will offer a prospective student. In past years, it’s been up to the student’s (and in most cases, parents’) discretion whether the st...

Throughout our high school careers at Kaneland, we are required to take classes that inform us how the government is run, and ultimately, we are successful as a country. In each history class, we go over governmental systems that are adapted to other societies. Let’s take communism, for instance. The idea was developed by Karl Marx, and boy, did it sound good on...
