Teenagers are needing jobs, but there is controversy about allowing student teens to get hired. The problem is, the working force isn’t as friendly as we think. In reality business and companies want profit,which means they don’t want to spend money on an extra paycheck. Teens are willing to multitask ...

The first week as a freshman was terrible. I dislike it...very much. I had so much expectations for high school and maybe it’s too early in the school year to judge, but for now, it sucks. I had so many family members that said “High school will be the highlight of your life,” but it doesn’t ...

By: Jeremiah Jones My opinion on the Nike commercial starring Colin Kaepernick was dope, especially with everything that happened with Kaepernick when he protested. Him doing the Nike commercial was a good look on Nike as well as Kaepernick. If you haven’t seen the commercial it is about never ...

There have been some changes added to Poly this past month. Three of the girl’s restrooms now have sanitary napkin/tampon dispensaries. Yes, something we’ve actually needed for a long time; no more bringing an entire box from home, which is great for me. Living in a single dad household is great...

Senioritis: I think it’s safe to say that most of us seniors suffer from this condition; making us sleep through first period and wait until the due date to even start an assignment. I know I’ve been slacking a lot this semester; I’ve shown up to school late everyday and I even turned in this article...

The world’s top designers and brands showcased their Fall/Winter collections from February 21 through...
