    Why the Ocean Keeps Bleeding

    By Bre Jarvis (Editor-in-Chief) During the summer of 2018, red waters crept up the beaches of Florida’s Gulf Coast. As dead sea life washed ashore and a pungent smell ran through the sea breeze, it almost seemed as if the ocean were bleeding. Indeed, Heather Barron, head veterinarian at Florida’s Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, said of the frightening conditions last August: “Anything that can leave has, and anything that couldn’t leave has died” (National Geographic). But why was the ocean bleeding? Perhaps you’ve heard of the culprit: red tide. Red tide is a natural phenomenon that involves the growth of microbial algae in ocean environments. Its name comes…

    By Brady Lorch (Sports Editor) After four years of combat, US-backed combatants have finally flushed members of ISIS out of the last village held by the radical Islamic group. After withstanding a small siege in the town of Baghuz, Syria, the final piece of ISIS controlled land was taken and this nearly 20 year war was ended. Although the ideals still live on and members are still attacking targets in the Middle East, ISIS has lost its most important asset: the ability to tax the people it controls. By controlling major regions of the Middle East, the Islamic State was able to fund the production of military grade weaponry including…

    Why did I Miss a Whole Week of School? My Experience at Space Camp

    By Maria Ribot (Managing Layout editor) I recently had the privilege to attend Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy-Space Camp at the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. This experience helped me strengthen my leadership skills as well as my ability to work in a team effectively. Not only this, but I was able to have clarity on other fields of study that I wasn’t interested in, such as space travel and exploration. However, the best part about this experience, was the people that I had the privilege to build amazing friendships with in such a short amount of time. The application process was so rigorous, that I almost backed…

    What Being an “A”-Rated District Entails

    By Bella Ibrahim (Managing Web Editor) Did you know that St. John’s County recently received an A grade for the last nine years in a row?  Maybe… but what exactly does that mean?  Jackie Pappas believes it comes from “attention to students’ success so overall scores increase and opportunities become more available.”  However, she also said that it places more of an importance on test scores than the information the students are able to retain in the future.  For more information on what qualifies a district as A-rated (spoiler alert a lot of it is test scores!) and what the A-rated schools all seem to have in common.
