Who needs a sports-based Olympics when you can incorporate physics into it? That’s right, Physics Olympics. This is a competitive tournament that requires all physics students at CHS to complete challenging tasks. This year, there were four different challenges; students had the choice to do either the egg drop or the coffee can racer paired with either the catapult or the zero impact vehicle.

Living in New Jersey is an epitome of the east coast. A sign of this is not the Jersey Shore, the crazy roads, or the commute to New York City. There seems to be a Dunkin' Donuts around every corner, averaging to one to three franchises per town. Dunkin' Donuts was the definition of the East Coast for a very long time, rarely competing with it’s west coast competitor, Krispy Kreme.

Chatham High School stands as an anomaly on Earth, and for that matter, the entirety of the Space-Time Continuum. For in these hallowed walls resides a swirling mass of astronomical proportions, a ceaseless agony from which even the greatest of men and women cannot escape: a vortex. Ushered in by the bells of Notre Dame, we are forced to trek in huddled masses to the chagrin of not just the men, but the women and children too. Day in and day out we see our loved ones, our friends, an acquaintance from our French class, inconvenienced by the populous halls. But I believe that this story goes much deeper, and I intend on telling you the true story the school has worked to cover up.

The Freshman Boy’s Cross Country Team was dominant throughout its season this year, consistently placing first in multiple different meets. The roster excelled in their current state and mostly went unchanged going into the winter track season. The freshmen have represented the power of Chatham and showcased their strengths. This was made most apparent, however, with the Morris County Cross Country Championships, where Chatham won first place at forty four points, beating Delbarton by exactly eighteen.

With the first semester ending around a week ago, seniors are sure to be feeling a swarm of emotions. Some are excited for their final semester as high schoolers, as they’re eager to leave the bustle of Chatham High School’s hallways for a new school. Others may worry about their future, concerned about what might become of them as they move onto a new stage in their life.

In order to understand what seniors might be feeling, we interviewed a few CHS seniors. The general theme among seniors approaching the second half of the year is one of ease and excitement with many already having gone through the struggles of college admissions. It's a time to enjoy their last moments in CHS as well as anticipate what the future holds.

This year, a new curriculum is being implemented in all ninth-grade health classes. It is a suicide prevention program called
Lifelines, which is taught by Ms. Lattarulo, the Student Assistance Counselor. Lifelines is a four-day course, and each day focuses on a different aspect of suicide and intervention. It is meant to raise awareness of teen suicide and erase the stigma and myths surrounding it. By providing facts, warning signs, and models of possible scenarios, it is an important resource for teens to understand how to help a friend that is struggling or what to do if they are approached by someone who is.

Ever since I could read, I have been obsessed. When I was younger, I used to read several books in a week. During the school years I don’t find that much time anymore, but I still open a book whenever I find myself stressed and in need of a break. Over the summer I catch up, and sometimes read as much as thirty or forty large books.

Challenge Day is an organization that finds its way back to Chatham High School year after year and changes the way that students and teachers look at one another, makes emotional connections between students who have never even seen each other in the hallways, and establishes new friendships in the classroom.

What makes Challenge Day so popular at CHS? Why does it get invited back every year? I had the incredible chance to attend Challenge Day this year myself, and here’s what I experienced:

It's nearing that time of the year again. At the end of January, or at the end of the first semester, some seniors mourn while others rejoice at the loss and gain of parking spots in the school lot. The six minute, three block walk from the school to the J lot is a miserable alternative to a spot in the school lot, especially in the bitter cold of winter. For those who do not know, securing a spot is not a difficult task. As I myself did not understand this process until a few days ago, for underclassmen this can surely be an area of confusion. Below I have highlighted a few of the main points regarding parking at CHS.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year again, and there is only one question on the minds of everyone in existence. What do the residents of CHS do for the holidays? Well hold on, dear readers, because I have just the answer for you.

I had the great honor of interviewing both students and staff at CHS to figure out what they find themselves doing when the holidays roll around each year. Aside from being serenaded by the majestic voices of Mariah Carey and Michael Bublé as an unspoken constant throughout my journey, I was pleased to hear about the different activities that my classmates and teachers partake in to celebrate the holidays in their own unique ways.

One would think that the theater department would get a break between the hectic schedules of the play and the musical, but for those who wish to take their love of theater to the next level, the Governor’s Awards provides the perfect outlet. The Governor's Awards is a competition between theater students across the state in a myriad of categories.

Chatham High School is one of the luckiest schools when it comes to having a popular and extensive theater program. Producing an annual play and musical, the theater department is constantly working tirelessly to ensure that their performances fully show how hard they worked to get to that point. The 2018 play, Radium Girls, follows the long and true story of many young women working for the U.S. Radium Corporation as dial painters during WWI, and their fight against the company due to the harmful radium they unknowingly ingested.

Much to the disappointment of fall athletes, their seasons and gym exemptions have come to a close. Let’s take a look back at how each sport’s varsity team performed.

As you have probably heard many seniors say, first semester of senior year is one of the most difficult times in high school. Many seniors during this time period are stressing over college applications and trying to balance that with their regular course load and finish their SAT or ACT exams. Very few have this college weight lifted off their shoulders; however, committed athletes earn that relief of stress early in their senior year. Two committed athletes that are both playing soccer in college are Emily Vinick and Sean Ryan. I asked them a few questions about this year and what led them to their paths of becoming committed athletes.

Salutations and exclamations for the Green Team’s sortation stations! In a joint effort to reduce waste during lunch in the CHS cafeteria, the Green Team and Environmental Club have now implemented a way for students to sort their leftovers and trash easily and efficiently. Old garbage cans have been replaced with brand new sorting stations with three separate sections: one for trash, one for recyclables, and one for compost. Unfortunately there are a select few who have taken it upon themselves to misuse the school’s newest asset and sabotage the effort to rid the school of unnecessary garbage.

This year’s homecoming court was composed of a diverse, well-rounded group of students who represent the principles of Chatham High School. However, the homecoming King and Queen stand out by embodying love and kindness in everything that they do.

As we say goodbye to the midterm elections, I feel it is important to look smaller than the national stage. Smaller than even the state stage. I am talking, of course, about Chatham High School’s own Young Conservatives and Young Progressives Clubs. While these clubs are similar to others in terms of encouraging discussion and furthering understanding, they stand out as the only two clubs pitted directly against one other. With our nation so divided, I was interested in finding common ground between these two polarizing clubs and the perspective of our nation’s youth on the world of politics.
