The Best Part is Ordering People Around

As you may already know, I started this school year looking a bit worse for wear.  With a sling on my left arm and a three-foot-long brace immobilizing my leg, it was hard not to become a spectacle (usually because I happened to be blocking a hallway or two).  A […]

Aaron Osborne: Voice of the People

A Heavy Workload

Among the biggest fans of the new schedule is Mr. Gilden, who gleefully begins class by saying that he is a week ahead in his curriculum.  But lugging his 5 lb textbook to class three times a week is still a pain in the neck (literally).  One of the downsides […]

GSA is very lucky to have a great administration. After all, it’s not every high school that has Arts-Fest, IS, senior privileges, or Debbie in the front office.  Most students are very appreciative of what the office does for us, and know that they have our best interests at heart, […]

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 […]

Summer Volunteering (and how I survived it)

While some may have spent their summer at camp or making money, I entered the exciting world of summer volunteer work.  I spent every Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 am to 1 pm as an Administrative Assistant in New York Methodist Hospital’s Department of Surgery. Too young to interact with […]

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 […]
