Dear KHS Administration,   It has come to my attention that there has been discussion of removing the most valuable and useful tool we have here at KHS: our iPad Minis. I am not only offended but downright disgusted that you would sabotage my learning experience like this. Shame on you. ...

I’m getting antsy even as I write this because of how excited I am to be back at school. The majority of students dread going back, but not me. I mean, what’s so awful about waking up to see the sun rise then sitting in a soft, comfortable chair for seven hours straight, five days a week? Sounds...

High school can be hard, especially for incoming freshmen fresh out of the chains of middle school.

*This piece is entirely satirical. Well, it’s finally here. You’ve begged, pleaded and cried for it. You’ve eaten nothing but parsnips the past year. It’s the reason for your wet dreams. It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for. The Parsnip of the century. The story of the century. The ev...

After Proposition A failed to pass almost two years ago, KSD has seen a number of major changes as a result of a finite budget.
