Casual Kaz

Mr. Kaz’s attire has been turning heads.  Students were initially disturbed to see their English teacher uncharacteristically wearing sweatpants to school, but after several weeks of t-shirts and gym shorts they are mostly used to it.  “I’m kind of in denial that summer’s over” he explained, but admitted that after […]

Jerome

By now we have all seen the new face sitting in the library with a laptop during most of our study halls.  He’s oldish, is dressed like a teacher, and goes by the name of Jerome.  It occurred to me that it’d be nice to know a little bit more […]

Mr. Paul Perkinson: Update from Upstairs

In the welcoming speech he gave on the first day back from summer break, Mr. Perkinson warned us about excessive blinking, assuring us that this year would fly by, and that before we’d know it, it would be summer again.  I, of course, proceeded to blink as many times as […]

Epply’s Exit

Ms. Epply will be Retiring from work now. Who will replace her? The news above is written in the form of a haiku.  I learned how to write these in Ms. Epply’s freshmen poetry class.  Next year’s freshmen, however, will be counting out syllables with someone new, because this has […]

From Perkinson

Dear Editors of the Procrastinator, I have been meaning to write you a letter for a while as I have enjoyed reading your newspaper  but I just have not gotten around to putting pen to paper…wait, hold it…now why would I type something like that?  Does not that seem odd […]

Meet Mr. Perkinson

Unless you haven’t been paying attention at all, our new headmaster’s name is Paul Perkinson and he looks somewhat like the above portrait; maybe you’ve seen him in the halls, maybe he even glared at you for texting during assembly.  He may not be punctual at the bus entrance (somebody’s forgotten to inform him that […]

Mrs. Greene

Mrs. Greene

At GSA, Mrs. Greene’s name is almost synonymous with the word art.  Her frizzy haired, paint-spotted smock, pencil-behind-the-ear appearance, and her bubbly personality are familiar to anyone who has ever stepped within a half-mile radius of the art room.  She runs deep in the DNA of the school, having worked […]
