Should we have class rank at any time in our high school career?

Zachary Ossman, sophomore

Students should be allowed to know what their class rank is at any given time in their high school careers. The biggest academic award a student can win is valedictorian in their school, but in Stroudsburg, students barely know where they are ranked before awards day. In other schools, students have...

Student speaks out against litter in the community

If I could change anything about my community, I would change the fact that there is so much garbage around the streets. When you are driving around the streets of our beautiful town of Stroudsburg, your eyes get pulled away to the sides of the road where a lot of garbage lies. It’s really a shame tha...

Hoodies should be allowed in school

Filed under Letters to the Editor

An aspect about Stroudsburg School District that could be improved is the dress code. All the friends that I speak to can agree that the fact that they cannot wear hoodies is frustrating. Hoodies provide a feeling of comfort. They also keep us warm when sometimes the school is very cold from the wintry ai...

Dress Code needs to be reviewed and improved

Anastazya Marin, sophomore

Filed under Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, One aspect of Stroudsburg School District that I think can be improved is the dress code policy. This could be improved because students aren’t allowed to wear hoodies due to it being a “choking hazard”, but it is mandatory that we wear a student ID, which is also a “choking haz...

Headphones are not a distraction to students in the halls

I’ve only been in Stroudsburg for a few months, and I think it’s a great school. The students and teachers are very nice and respectful, but I do think, however that the school can be improved. My biggest, and only issue with the school is some unnecessary rules that have been put into place. For e...

Students should be more involved in volunteer work

     If I could change anything in the community, I would change the amount of volunteers we have. If we had more volunteers our community would be a lot cleaner.       Volunteer work is key to our community. Without it, our community wouldn't be as good as it is, but I feel it could be...

Students need more sleep

One thing I believe Stroudsburg School District could improve on is the well being of the students. I believe they should change the time that school starts because it is hurting the kids. Waking up at 6 a.m. to go to school at 7 a.m. isn't very easy for a high school kid to do, let alone make it th...

SASD student shares her thoughts on school rules

Joanna Chen, sophomore

Filed under Letters to the Editor

I think a good aspect of Stroudsburg School District is that everyone is united. All the clubs and activities help each other out. I believe that this is what helps regulate the school system and keeps it alive and going. Even so, there was still the strike. As a student, I wasn’t happy that there ...

School lunches have drastically changed over the years

Filed under Letters to the Editor

From Michelle Obama to our own school administrators it’s obvious that our school lunches have drastically changed over the past few years.  They have made changes such as whole wheat bread and a requirement of at least one fruit or vegetable. However if you walk through the hallways of our school, sur...

Student recommends alternative to bathroom passes

Francis Murphy, sophomore

Filed under Letters to the Editor

Stroudsburg High School has been experiencing some problems with vandalism in the bathrooms recently.  Hoodlums as of now can just walk into a bathroom and vandalize it as they see fit.  It truly ruins everyone else’s “potty experience."  But to add insult to injury, they get the bathrooms closed...

Student wants school to open later

Thomas Meyers, sophomore

Filed under Letters to the Editor

An aspect of Stroudsburg School District that needs to be improved is that school needs to start later. Most people are not functioning at their best when they have to get up as early as they do now. The need to wake up early for school prevents students from getting the necessary amount for people the...

Student frustrated with shortage of parking offers suggestion

Patrick Barry, sophomore

Filed under Letters to the Editor

One issue that commonly comes up is the issue of parking. As a sophomore this does not affect me all that much, yet. Next year though, like many of my peers, the plan is to drive myself to and from school, but how can I do that when me and the 400 other new drivers have to battle it out for parking passes? An...
