What I Learned from Carlton the Crab

Senior Pilgrimage. A retreat full of bonding, strolling through Kent, and making friendship bracelets. When people hear ‘senior pilgrimage’, the first thought that comes to their head is not often: ‘new pet’. However, this year’s retreat was a special exception. It all began during free...

Believe Women

  “I am here because I believe it is my civic duty to tell you what happened to me while Brett Kavanaugh and I were in high school.” This is what democracy looks like. A woman who is brave enough to tell her story. The future will be determined by story tellers. There are people in this world...

On May 16, the US Senate voted against the FCC ruling to preserve Net Neutrality, the principle that internet service providers cannot deny or restrict access to select sites; that is,- ISPs must be indifferent to what sites are visited by the user in terms of the speeds they provide.

Emma Cooney, Editor-in-Chief

May 26, 2018


Filed under Editorial, Opinion

This year among all the other Sr. required reading, I managed to read Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse 5, in which the main character Billy Pilgrim is “unstuck in time,” living various moments throughout his life at random times, out of order. In the novel, time is not a series of events happening...

James Martin: A Modern Jesuit

Annika Bjornson, Editor-in-Chief

May 25, 2018


Filed under Editorial, Opinion

Many of the people we look up to as a society are the famed, charismatic, and attractive movie stars, singers, and millionaires. As teenage students of a Jesuit school, there are not many public figures with strong Jesuit values to whom we can relate and admire. However, Father James Martin SJ has provided...

Forget About the Stigma: Male Nurses in the Field

Sophie Freeman, Photo Editor

May 23, 2018


Filed under Editorial, Opinion

When one hears the word “nurse,” they will probably picture a woman. When one hears the word “doctor,” they will probably picture a man. More often than not, male nurses are mistaken for doctors, solely based on the fact that they are male. Since nursing has become a female dominated career,...

Filed under Editorial, Opinion

Generation Z. From a technical standpoint, we were born ranging from the years 1997-2011. We are the children of Generation X. We are the voices of Emma Gonzales, David Hogg, (girl who talked about blm). We are the organizers of March for Our Lives, and Never Again. We will not tolerate Neo-nazis, sexual...

Understanding Prep’s Privilege

Annika Bjornson, Editor-In-Chief

April 27, 2018


Filed under Editorial, Opinion

At Seattle Preparatory School, our academic platform allows us to experience a wide variety of opportunities. Some would call this “privilege,” which refers to a special right, advantage, or immunity that is available only to a particular group of people. It is important to acknowledge the presence...

Social Media: A Barrier to Actualizing Our Humanity

Annika Bjornson, Editor-in-Chief

March 1, 2018


Filed under Editorial, Opinion

Total control, perfection, and gratification are fabricated prospects that we as a society vainly attempt to reach, but social media has perpetuated our impression that these ideals can be met. As an eighteen-year-old student growing up in the revolution of the Web, I recognize the ways in which social...
