Lamar revolutionizes music

To Pimp a Butterfly album cover.

By Peter Conway Staff Writer Kendrick Lamar’s most recent album, To Pimp a Butterfly, was surprisingly released March 16, a week before its intended release on March 23. This revolutionary album has sound like I have never heard before. Every song seems to change flow to a drastic extent, and sometimes multiple times within the song. To Pimp a Butterfly is Kendrick’s third highly acclaimed album, coming after Section 80 and Good Kid m.a.a.d. City. All of these albums have hints of genius in them, but nothing like his latest album. No hip-hop artist has ever attempted to create music that is, plainly, just so different. I feel…

By John Devereaux WABC Liaison On the town line of Chelmsford and Westford, Massachusetts lies a small pizza place called The Willows.

The love of Valentine’s Day

heart

By John Devereaux WABC Liaison Valentines Day is a holiday that the students of Westford Academy are split on. Half of the students dislike Valentines Day, while the other half love Valentine’s Day. I am among the half of the student body that thoroughly enjoys this holiday. For me, the holiday brings out the joy of receiving gifts, or just another presence of a person. Since elementary school, students have been hyped up over Valentine’s Day. I remember receiving candy and hand written cards from everyone in my class. In middle school, the candy was removed and cards were created for everyone’s…

Alternatives to P.E testing

IMG_0272

John Devereaux WABC Liaison   As a Senior in High School, I have taken many tests during my tenure in gym. I’ve taken gym every year, and there was not an instance where I took my time or stopped what I was doing to study for these tests. About every two or three weeks the activity in Gym class will be changed into another activity. Before switching into the next activity every student no matter their grades have to take a small test. “The P.E test don’t benefit us at all, not positively or negatively. Most people don’t actually study for…

Opinion: Schedule must change, but not dramatically

A schedule currently used at Westford Academy.

Tim DeLouchrey Sports Editor To change or not to change? That is the question many students and faculty members alike at Westford Academy have begun to ask regarding the current schedule the school exercises. As a senior, I have seen enough of the schedule to understand its ins and outs and its ups and downs. The schedule we have does a lot of good. The rotational nature of it is certainly a plus, as it has been proven by numerous researches that students learn differently depending on the time of day. If the schedule were to be altered, it would…
