Achieving straight As, or an unweighted GPA of 4.0, is the goal of many high school students. Getting straight As involves a lot of hard work, but it isn't impossible. Here is how I believe you can get all As. Do your homework. The number of students who do not do their homework shocks me. But doing your homework has many benefits and will help keep your grades up. Those five points you receive for a homework check matter, and when you get a 0 out of 5, it matters even more. Doing your homework also helps you learn the information, raising your test and quiz grades as well. Don't procrastinate. Procrastination is the downfall of many high school students who are capable of good grades. When you receive an assignment, do it ASAP. And when you are given the date of a test, start studying immediately instead of waiting and then cramming the night before. When you do this, you are likely to be less stressed, which increases the quality of the work you do. Don't put
Coming off a decisive 4-3 win on Monday vs. Elizabethtown, the Boys' Soccer team was back in action Wednesday night. Seniors Luke Kelly, Arik Harnish, Joe Frego, Colin Reinacher, Gavin Shue, Lucas Baker, Caden Kouterick, Alex Blank, and Cameron Sweger were honored in a ceremony before the game. The Mountaineers were active early, controlling possession and drawing many corners. There were about 18 minutes remaining in the first half, the Pioneers led a counter-attack that resulted in a goal from Ryker Holsinger, who entered the game as a substitute. Holsinger put the ball in the bottom left side of the net after a great move and pass from Luke Kelly. The scoreline remained at 1-0 throughout the rest of the 1st half. The Pioneer back four had an outstanding first half, denying the Mounts any good scoring opportunities. The second half was uneventful, with possession being equally split between the two teams. When the Pioneers had the ball, they put together many good scoring oppor
I recently finished reading Rumble Fish written by S.E. (Susan Eloise) Hinton and published in 1975. The book starts with Rusty-James on a beach and he runs into an old friend of his that he hadn’t seen in years, Steve. That’s when he flashes back to everything he and Steve had done and been through when they were kids. Rusty-James’ memory is all messed up, and he barely ever remembered much from his childhood, but seeing Steve made everything come back to him… and that was probably for the worst. Most of the book is from Rusty-James’ point of view (in a flashback) when he was fourteen years old. He was the toughest kid in his neighborhood… besides his brother, the Motorcycle Boy, of course. The Motorcycle Boy’s real name is never said, everyone just calls him the Motorcycle Boy because he was constantly stealing and riding motorcycles. He was older than Rusty-James and everyone in their neighborhood respected him and thought he was the coolest and toughest guy to step face on p
