For many students, prom is the most magical night in their academic career. However, there are many tasks that must be sorted out before the big day such as tickets, tables, dress/suits, and last but not least, a date.

Over the years, asking someone to prom has become a spectacle of grand proportions. It is common to see seniors surprising their friends with funny posters, cute serenades, or even delicious food. This new tradition can be daunting for many people. However, they also can be more memorable than the dance itself. Seniors Amy Virasak. Amy Wills, and Jacob Robbin recount their promposal experience.

During the summer months, an array of fruits and vegetables are available to make the most fantastic treats. Fruits, especially, are a delicious go-to, and with watermelon, cantaloupe, and others in season, a mouth-watering delight is created. These two recipes are all about summer fruits, and how they can make every picnic and barbeque a blast.

Two of Trumbull High School’s most beloved teachers are retiring at the end of this school year. Mr. Smith, probably the most unconventional English teacher ever, is leaving after 23 years at Trumbull High. Madame Perusi, department chairperson of the foreign language department and French teacher for 36 years, is closing this chapter of her life as well. The absence of these two amazing teachers will be felt throughout the entire THS community.

The end of the school year is an exciting and memorable time for everyone. It is important to capture every moment. One of the rising trends that has made this possible is a portable photo booth station. Decked out with hats, props, and costumes, this is a perfect way to get your friends together for an end of the year celebration.

With this, however, comes a large price tag. In order to preserve your memories without emptying your pockets, set up your very own DIY photo booth station.

Recently, the Science Academy, headed by Dr. Goodman from Agriscience, travelled up to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for an immersion in science and technology. Funded by the BEI and the Langer Lab, this experience was an unforgettable one for the students, and a plethora of information was funneled out of it. It involved a campus tour, a myriad of presentations and demonstrations, and best of all, a visit to the prestigious Langer Lab.

From pretty dresses to preppy shorts there was a huge variety of clothing styles featured at the Trumbull High Senior Fashion Show on May 1. Lights flashed and sequins sparkled. The seniors strutted down the runway with pride and fierce attitude.

Senior emcees Adam Angelucci and Prithvi Mahesh dominated the scene with quick jokes and witty remarks. There was no mistake that the crowd was enjoying themselves immensely as they laughed along. Models lined up backstage ready for Angelucci and Mahesh to announce those coming to the catwalk, along with their college decisions. Most of the seniors managed to remain composed while they waited to show off their outfits.

Building a robot may not be easy, but after many nuts and bolts later, it was all worth it.

On May 9th, eight members of the Robotics Club, most of them students of Mr. Drenkard’s AP Physics class, traveled to Rahway, New Jersey to compete in the New York/New Jersey Regional Botball Tournament, and the results were nothing but successful.

The team competed with two robots; one named Sir Lift-a-Lot and the other named Scorchin’ Scorpion.
