Ground Work Begins On Frisco ISD’s 12th High School

September 30, 2020

As far as you may know, Frisco ISD has 11 high schools. Earlier this year, they developed a plan to create a 12th high school for the district, being built Northeast of Teel Pkwy and Dakotah Rd, which would be adjacent to the future PGA headquarters and golf courses. Anyways, in May, these plans were put on hold due to the widespread of the Covid-19 Virus. Now that the school year has begun, though, they have a clearer picture of student enrollment, building capacity and now have resumed ...

The Iconic R.B.G

The Iconic R.B.G

September 30, 2020

As if 2020 couldn’t get any worse. In the already catastrophically, abominably, irreversibly, almost-comically terrible year that this has been, another crushing blow was dealt upon humanity through the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. To say that this is one of the worst things to have occurred amidst a sea of grievous occurrences this year is both valid and testimony to the truly spectacular person R.B.G was and what the loss of her symbolizes.   Born in the eternally-moving city of Brookly...

U.S Government to Reduce Number of Troops in Iraq

U.S Government to Reduce Number of Troops in Iraq

September 18, 2020

For most people, 2020 has been nothing but a consistent harborer of bad news- rather raging wildfires, the ever-looming tension of a tumultuous political election in the US, and of course, a pandemic of such unprecidence and calibre it still feels unreal to most. However not every event  to have occurred this year tells of despair and strife. One such gem in an array of daunting stories is the long-awaited decision by the U.S government to reduce it’s amount of soldiers located in Iraq.  ...

Why everything feels uncertain what we can do to be better

September 15, 2020

Covid -19 has taken over the world and everything does not always make sense we are 7 months in a pandemic and we still have no idea what's going on in the grand scheme of things  Life as we know it has changed and compared to everyone else who seems to be getting back to regular life as they have taken care of and done everything in their power towards the issue.    We are still behind which is why we can feel that much more alone. As our leaders are failing us as a nation we sit and watch it all unfold. I believe it shows that the foundation this country was built on is cracked and is continuously doing so. I think we can all finally see what's really happening in  a grander way than we ever could before...

Milestone Decision Separates Church and State in Sudan

Milestone Decision Separates Church and State in Sudan

September 14, 2020

For most of Western society, the ability to practice one’s own religion without interference from the government is a luxury that is frequently taken for granted. After all, it has been an ingrained right, and indeed the foundation, in which certain countries were built upon. The same could not be said for Sudan, who up till now, was grasped by 30 stringent years of enforced Islamic rule. Now however, non-existent religious boundaries are a dreaded thing of the past for the African country, as Sud...

The Great Awakening

The Great Awakening

September 8, 2020

Ask most historians and they'll tell you the Great Awakening refers to a period in the 18th century English colonies in which the people in present-day America experienced a revived and unquenchable passion in their religious theologies. However nearly 300 years later, the term ‘Great Awakening’ is experiencing a revival of its own as it is used to describe an unprecedented time in American history. For a Black-owned bookstore in Fort Worth, ‘The Great Awakening’ is what the owners of the store...

Library To-Go: Making Libraries Covid-Friendly

Lauren Adkins

September 1, 2020

  Beginning early September, Frisco ISD will be implementing a new program to make books more accessible to students during Covid-19 social distancing procedures. “Back in the spring, we had a whole district of students that could only access ebooks, but research has shown that students prefer paper” says Stacey Cameron, the FISD Library Coordinator, “we knew the program was something we had to offer.”   The program, Library To-Go, differs from campus to campus, but is generally the same idea. Students that are participating in virtual classes will have the option to pick up books from their campus library and some campuses are even mobilizing their libraries. The idea came directly fr...

How to Have a Wedding, COVID Style

How to Have a Wedding, COVID Style

August 31, 2020

When a little girl or boy dreams about their future wedding, usually they envision a beautiful venue surrounded by friends and family, topped off with a reception filled with celebratory dancing and energetic music. Never would one picture their significant other designated to a hospital bed surrounded by hospital staff- but this was the reality for one Texas couple as they tied the knot in the most unconventional way. Despite the oddity of the circumstances, Carlos Muniz and Grace Leimann went on...
