Senior Abi Singstock spent a significant portion of her junior year working on her AP Research paper, an exploration into the various meal options for students with vegetarian or vegan diets. Singstocks paper would end up expanding to 30 pages worth of compiled data, analysis, and research, and was published by the High School Branch of The Journal of Student Research. Her work is now also being referenced by the Board of Education to develop more vegetarian and vegan-friendly cafeteria options for students at school, bringing Singstocks ideas to reality.
Black Friday. This infamous day that happens once a year has a buzz around its reputation. The rush around these deal breakers is loved by many people in America.  As soon as the Thanksgiving day meal and traditions are over, many people hurry to their local shopping centers and let the spree commence. But, it does not have to be this way for all that want a piece of the action.

Seniors Peyton Hines, Julie Fort, Belle Scholles, and Kelly Donovan, and juniors Morgan Robbins and Maria Shomo lined up in performance and sang an amazing rendition of the song “Ex-wives” during the Variety Show. Shomo, one of the ex-wives, said, “I had such a fun time working with my friends and creating our performance together and watching everyone else kill their own unique acts both nights!”
