The Truth about Mananging

Rumor on the street has it that managing a sport is one of the easiest ways a person can get involved with athletics, without actually having to do any work. Nevertheless, in all actuality, this rumor is the furthest thing from the truth.

Roommates through Social Media

There was a time when incoming freshmen met their roommates on the first day of college. There would have been no previous communication about room décor, so they would already have bought what they needed (a few sheets, a pillow cover, and a towel). Or, in many cases, the room would remain the way it was.

STEM Challenge

During this year, four dedicated students, Alexa Simpson, Chris Stella, Kevin Crossley and Ravina Hingorani, from Trumbull High School, came together to work on the Sikorsky STEM Challenge. They were asked to research the Aileron of the F4U Corsair and eventually redesign it. Over the course of six reports, they worked alongside mentors from Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation. On Saturday, May 4, 2013, these students presented in front of a panel of five judges in the Connecticut Student Innovation Expo in the Convention Center in Hartford and won third place in the state. Congratulations to these students for their hard work!

THS Robotics Club Takes Documentation Honor at Regional Tournament

On May 11, the Trumbull High School Robotics Club traveled to Rahway NJ to compete in the Botball® NY/NJ Regional tournament. The team has been planning, designing and building robots for the tournament since the kickoff workshop in March. The robots compete on an eight foot square game board by sensing objects of various shape, size and color, retrieving them and placing them in specified locations. This is done through a designed obstacle course that included other teams’ obstructing robots.

A best friend looks out for you and does everything in his or her power to keep you safe. Seven-year-old Nathan Zack has a different kind of best friend. Four month old puppy, Nero, keeps his owner safe on a daily basis. Nero is a diabetes alert dog (DAD). He has learned to detect exactly when Nathan’s blood sugar drops severely low or spikes dangerously high.

Hats off to our Principal

Three years ago I sat in Dr. Tremaglio’s office, interviewing him for my first newspaper article. As a freshman, I was slightly intimidated to be interviewing such a high-ranking figure in my first few weeks of freshman year.

On May 1st 2013, 31 Trumbull High students were formally inducted into the International Thespian Society. This honor is granted to students who excel in theatre and dedicate countless hours to doing what they love. This year many more students were inducted than there have been in past years. The troupe director, Mrs. Spillane, mentioned in a speech how impressive it was that even freshmen built up enough points to be inducted.

In this year’s new fashion collections, floral patterns are the latest trend on and off the runway. When spring and summer role around, one of the first things that come to mind are flowers. Flowers are a sure sign that warm weather and longer days are headed our way. Flowers also represent beauty and love. Each one is unique in a sense that all of them are special and stunning.

Many designers have found a way to capture that beauty and individuality in fashion today and make a statement.

The school year is coming to a close, and the glimmer of hope known as summer is finally in full view. No longer are students immersed in WWII lectures, or care about long mathematical equations. The thoughts of beaches, carefree nights, and more importantly, summer concerts are what clouds students minds by around mid-May towards the end of the school year. Perfectly for students, Connecticut is hosting a legendary concert this summer in the Comcast Theatre in Hartford on July 14th, 2013 from 11 am to 9 pm. The Vans Warped Tour.

Summer Movie Preview

By Noah Levy ’13

One of the hardest things in the world (For me at least) is to go a long time without going to the movies. Unfortunately, the first four months of 2013 have not been very fruitful for avid film-goers, failing to live up to the amazing output of 2012 and delivering movies ranging from disappointing (A Good Day To Die Hard), to good (Oz), bombs, (Jack The Giant Slayer) and just outright bad (The Host). Thankfully, this Summer is going to make the past four months of junk worth it. We have already been given Iron Man 3, The Great Gatsby, and Star Trek Into Darkness, but what do the next few weeks have in store?
