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…

Opinion: Is technology in the classroom worth it?

Click here to read an opinion about the implementation of technology in the classroom.

By Kai-Lou Yue News Editor As a student, I enjoy it when one of my teachers brings the class to one of the computer labs to work on a project or assignment, or signs out a laptop cart for use in the classroom. It’s a welcome change from a typical class of taking notes or listening to the teacher explain a concept. However, within the next few years, through the Digital Learning Plan, technology will be incorporated in the classroom curriculum through either one-to-one, where school district picks one device for all students to lease or buy from the school to use…

Opinion: Stop buying parking passes from upperclassmen

After seniors leave on internship, the parking spaces are open and tempting for underclasmmen.

By Alok Ganguly Managing Editor As a junior at Westford Academy, one of the things that I am most looking forward to next year is getting a parking pass and being able to drive myself to school instead of riding the overcrowded bus in the morning. However, there is another opportunity for me to avoid waking up an hour early and getting ready for the bus ride: buying a parking pass off of a senior who won’t be needing it anymore. This age-old tradition is one of the few things that have made the daunting junior year something to look…
