Who knew for my last article, I would be committing a cardinal sin of the J and breaking the AP style number one rule: writing in the first person.  As a second semester senior, I’m more than ready to leap out of high school and into college. But I did not expect to be writing my last Observer ...

Boxes lay on the floor of senior Victoria Park's room. Many seniors will be moving out of their current residencies to pursue higher education or a career.

Winston Churchill High School always seemed like an unusual name for a school. I remember laughing at it when my parents told me I would be transferring there from my school in New York. A British Prime Minister is so unexpected for a high school name, especially one with Niche reviews about students ge...

Ah, high school. I’ve seen so many movies about it.  At five years old, I remember watching “High School Musical” in the living room of my cousins’ house, enjoying the iconic end scene where they dance and sing “We’re All in This Together,” like the multi-talented flash mob of athletic...

I really don’t know how it is possible to fully encompass my entire high school experience in a few pages, but I’ll try to summon the Sparknotes inside of me to make that happen.  I have loved every moment of the three and a half years I spent at WCHS. Yes, even the stress of finding a spot o...

Going into high school, people told me lots of things: freshman year is the most fun, homecoming is lame, junior year will drain every ounce of energy out of you and that you will regret ever taking AP World. So naturally, I went in with expectations of how things would turn out-- and I can say if the...

Cue the first song on my Spotify playlist from freshman year. It’s “Innocence” by Avril Lavigne. That song symbolized a new era. Freshman year was full of hope, but at the core of it all, I was afraid of losing that sense of wonder throughout my high school years. Now cue the most-played song fr...

The only thing I knew about high school was from the movies.  Coming into high school, I was lost and scared. This was nothing like “High School Musical” had made it out to be. The school was so big and I felt so alone, it seemed like everyone had already made friends. Everyone was so academi...

I have once again waited until the last minute to write my article. But this time it wasn’t procrastination (well, maybe a little). I’ve been putting off writing this article because I knew the second I started to write it, tears were sure to fall. It seems crazy that I’ve been tasked with ...

Blast 31 – 2020

The Blast 31 set was never finished. The production is suspended.

Somewhere within the darkened halls of an empty WCHS, a colorful stage sits, ready to receive performers that, in all likelihood, won’t set foot on it again. It was the culmination of weeks of spirit-consuming work; staying at school well past sunset, struggling to keep up with homework and preparing ...

I always said I hated high school, but now as I sit in my bed reflecting on my home for four years, I rethink this statement. Through the ups and downs of high school, as much as you could say I seemed to have hated it, I would never ask for a better school to be an alumna of.  High school for me was...

Beach Week – 2020

May 14, 2020

I never really identified with WCHS. My entire high school career, I found other ways to define myself: through friends, extracurriculars, family and interests. School was like a job to me; I would go in the morning, leave in the afternoon, then begin my day and express myself. It’s kind of funny th...
