It’s that time of year again: that month-and-a-half between the Super Bowl and Opening Day. Sports fans around this time crave some drama, and they look no further than the NCAA tournament, otherwise known as March Madness.

For those with limited sports knowledge, March Madness is the annual NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament. 68 teams from across the country compete in the tournament’s infamous do- or-die format.

For the THS Thespians, saying that the road to performing Rent was a long one would be a vast understatement. Faced with controversy and pressed for time, it was clear that putting on this production was going to be quite an undertaking. In the end, though, the cast and crew together managed to put on a show that was nothing short of spectacular.

Powerpuff Girls are made up of a combination of a special “Chemical X”, sugar, spice, and everything nice. Powderpuff girls are made up of brains, brawn, and determination. They both have different make ups, but yield the same end result: a mean, lean, fighting machine. With both teams filled with enthusiastic players, the flag football match was bound to be exciting. While some may argue that Powderpuff is not as interesting as a real football game, there is still plenty of action and thrill. Kendall Szulimowski, a spectator, states, “I love seeing all the wipe outs! This isn’t your average gym class.”

Social Media?

Most students at Trumbull High use social media of some sort. One very popular social media site is Facebook created by Mark Zuckerberg. Why do students have Facebook? Is it useful at all?

Kayla Murray, a junior, stated, “Facebook is sometimes useful. I mean I use it for updates of groups for school events such as THeSpian Society.” For thespians of Trumbull High, Facebook was used to advocate the word of how RENT the musical was cancelled and why it should be performed.

Uncovering the Logic Behind Class Scheduling

As course selection season winds down at Trumbull High School, students have been left with mixed feelings about their schedules for next year. While some underclassmen selected their courses in a matter of minutes after perusing the Program of Studies catalog, other students agonized over their decisions. This especially holds true for juniors who were hard-pressed to choose their academics in the midst of such an extensive array of classes.

Technology Take Over

Christie Costello ’14

One would be amazed if they took the time to look up from their own phone to see the number of students at THS walking and texting or checking Twitter and Instagram. Students are frequently glued to their phones for social media updates, text messages, or even just to pass the time and iPhones seem to have convinced many people that there is an app for everything. This generation has become overly dependent on technology and, for the most part, do not even realize it. Technology has consumed the lives of many.

The World Wide Web of Friends

Even back in the days of MySpace, everyone has always headed caution towards making friends on the Internet and on social media sites. We’ve all been to assemblies in school in which an adult comes in and talks about how they thought they were becoming friends with a 20 year old girl named Brittany from New York when it was really Mark, a 50 year old man from New Jersey. But despite all of the negativity given towards making friends online, I personally believe that there is a positive side to making friends online if you go about it the right way.

Senioritis…Are You Infected?

Rebecca Buck ’14
EE Staff Writer

As the halfway point of the school year rolls around, midterms check in and seniors check out. After three grueling years of high school, standardize testing, SATS, and college applications seniors often become infected with the classic case of Senioritis. Senioritis can be classified as a term used to describe the decreased motivation towards studies displayed by students who are nearing the end of their high school careers.
