A final goodbye

After spending four years at BHS and three of those years in Mrs. Pendergrass’s Journalism class, I have developed a very strong and positive opinion on the class and newspaper that I have spent so much time involved in. Receiving my “wanted” poster in the mail the summer after my freshmen year...

It’s finally getting to be that time of year where coming to school seems to be almost impossible for everyone. The weather is getting nicer, the countdowns till the end of the year are starting, and one wants to be stuck in class all day. Even though you may be watching movies, or having study halls...

Filed under Meg'n More - Megan Friel

With a tough winter, (and partial spring,) it’s no surprise that the “spring fever” has found it’s way to Biddeford High School. For the first time in a long time, the sun is no longer hiding behind the clouds and the grass really does look greener. While spring fever is the gateway to temptation,...

Why your clothes say more than you think

In this day in age, more and more teens have sacrificed personal style for what is commonly worn: Ugg boots, Bella’s, khakis, and North Face jackets are just a few of the many overly-glorified items. Over-priced and under-stylized, most kids beg their parents for the popular accessories. However, with...

Seniors, we have almost made it. 1 month until graduation,  but who’s counting right? This is my last column I will ever write for the newspaper, and the feeling of moving on hasn’t totally sunk in yet. This year had many ups and downs, and a lot of “last first’s” and just plain old “lasts.”...

Social media’s desensitizing effect

I find that as I progress through high school, each class that enters as freshmen has become more and more apathetic and desensitized. Don’t misunderstand, every class has their nice and genuine individuals, but overall I’ve seen a gradual decrease in the the overall ability to sympathize and empathize...

I’m not going to sit here and be that person to say “getting an education is important if you want to succeed in life,” because as high school students we hear that all the time. What I will say though is education is the starting point, and as students continue to learn and reason their prospects...

I’m your typical American high schooler, along with being the Vice President of my class, editor of the newspaper and a (reasonably) up-kept student, it's no wonder that I've decided to do my column on how to become involved in your school. Although it may seem daunting, one of the most efficient ways...

High school can seem like merely a joke to many adults; they see it as a time of no real importance aside from the cliché idea that “high school is where you find yourself.” But to teenagers, there is no time that is more important because this is our “now.” This means that many of us take high...
