Many students assume that ninth grade is just another year. But ninth grade is getting you ready for high school. Your teachers will be harder and a lot more strict on you to prepare you for this important time in your life. Ninth grade is the year that colleges start to look at your grades. They can...

Seniors: So, the time has come, the time is now to spread your wings and soar! But first, let’s take a walk down memory lane. When you were in the ninth grade, Dr. Curry became Superintendent of SASD. One memorable event for your class was the hoodie fundraiser. Aha, is it starting to come...

This year has been a difficult year. Most seniors already began struggling the second week that school began. It was not because they were lazy, but they were given a lot of work along with the task of college research. This year seniors have to focus on getting accepted to colleges that will eventually...

To all of my little Pumas

To all of my little Pumas, I am absolutely delighted to have had the privilege of watching you all grow up. I've seen some unfocused and not so very motivated students find their individual paths. I've witnessed snotty little seventh-graders become graciously polite and accepting human beings. I've had the plea...

To the Class of 2017, Do you remember the feeling you had when you first set foot in this building? How different it was from the Junior High. Navigating the halls, and meeting teacher after teacher, it was a wonder you knew where to go. But, these days you are walking the halls as a student, for...

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

Zachary Ossman, sophomore

Filed under Letters to the Editor

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...

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. Itai??i??s really a shame...

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...

Iai??i??ve only been in Stroudsburg for a few months, and I think itai??i??s a great school.

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...
