I offer a disclaimer to begin this article. I am not an expert on vaping, nor do I claim to be. I am not writing this article to shame anyone on the decisions they make, and I am not writing this article to provide solutions to a very complicated problem, though I will propose one solution that I can not prove the effectiveness of. I am writing this article from the perspective of a student who has lived in Chatham his whole life, as well as someone who has grown up watching the anti-drug campaigns of our generation.

A scholarship seems simple enough, you apply and if you get it, you receive financial aid. This is all well and good, but collecting hard data on these scholarships can, in some cases, be fairly convoluted. Some scholarships are easy to explain. The Chatham High School PTO Scholarship, for instance, offers a $2,000 scholarship to the applicant with the highest GPA. It’s straightforward and cuts right to the chase. It is also a rare exception in the world of scholarships.

For one thing, it’s nothing like
High School Musical.

While I can’t say that the change from middle school to high school is comparable to leaving for college (I still have to ask my parents for permission before going anywhere), several freshmen like myself have noticed the increase in freedom such as being allowed to keep our phones out during the school day.

“Ugh… they are so annoying” is sadly the main phrase I have heard from a lot of people when talking about the chromebooks.

A lot of the high schoolers are not in favor of them because they already have their preferred computers at home. Many say, including me, that they got their computers specifically for high school and the workload that comes with it.

It’s midnight and the parents’ of the children you are babysitting for have not gotten home yet. You start to panic, wondering whether you will be able to make it home without being noticed by a police officer.

CHS Chronicle: How have your senior years at CHS been going so far?

Alex Stuart: So far, senior year has definitely been the best year of high school. I feel like all the grades and tests I took over the past years are all beginning to have some value.

The technological advancements in Chatham High School from the 2014-2015 school year to the 2015-2016 school year have been tremendous. All information, updates, and assignments for students are accessible in just the click of a button. After speaking with a few students and teachers it seems to be very helpful for most to use but on the other hand a bit overwhelming for others to get use to.

The month of June is a happy one: the weather is warm, the pools are open, and the days are rapidly ticking down to summer vacation, that time of year that every student yearns for.  It’s marred by just one thing: finals week.  During the weeks leading up to finals, hordes of students can be seen rushing around with textbooks and calculators, hoping to cram in as much studying they can in order to obtain the last ten percent of their yearly grades.

This year the administration has implemented new rules in regard to occupying the library before school and during lunch. For those who are unaware of the changes the new rules are as follows:

As the Christmas season approaches, so does another important time: college acceptance letters! Tis the season of many students’ early decision notification letters, while people cross their fingers and hope they are spending the next four years at their first choice. Although the waiting around is hard, some CHS seniors have advice and words of wisdom for current juniors about the difficulties of the application process.

While making the school-wide switch from FirstClass to Schoology was a big adjustment, many students and teachers are starting to warm up to what Mrs. Pace, beloved school nurse, describes as the "user friendly, easy to learn website". The easy training that was needed to adapt to Schoology is just one of the many positive aspects that Chatham's new online communication system has brought us this year.

The first of November: The Halloween decorations get sent back to the attic, the pumpkins are chucked in the garbage, and jumbo-size bags of candy lay in the discount aisle at half price. Within minutes it seems, everything is replaced by Santa hats, snowflakes, and Christmas songs playing at every department store. Forget about Thanksgiving; the end of October seems to signal a deep hidden urge as the steady background chant of Christmas, Christmas, Christmas is heard.

What a lot of people don’t understand is how zero animal products means zero animal products. Not just meat—no more seafood, milk, or even honey? So why would, or rather should, people pursue this kind of lifestyle? Obviously, there is an ethical and moral argument to be made as well as proven health benefits. But some people just don’t care. So why should those people convert?

Here we are with the second installment of Ask Broseph! For those who don’t know, the Chronicle has reached out to advice-giving extraordinaire Broseph McDude Mann, a senior with plenty of experience dealing with the daily problems of high school. Here are some answers to questions submitted for this issue!

You’ve probably noticed a few of the new implements to the cafeteria menu this year: larger vitamin waters, new canned drinks such as Minute Maid Lemonade and Yoo-hoos, or perhaps you've even tried the new cartoned juice. However, if you didn't catch all of them, there is one new addition that you definitely noticed, as its availability nearly sparked outrage throughout the student body: boxed water.

With all of this fuss being made about the emergence of boxed water, I wanted to take time out of my incredibly busy and totally existent schedule to remind the students of Chatham High School of another environmentally and economically conscious means of consuming that delicious H2O, the water fountain.

Each year the swift arrival of Autumn brings forth the changing of the color of leaves, cooler temperatures and a glorious holiday solely dedicated to eating. Yet perhaps one of the most recent Fall traditions is the always highly anticipated launch of a new version of the iPhone.

September is known as back to school month. For the freshman class, it is a time for adjustment. The high school has a completely different system

 The basic foundations of the modern Arab-Israeli conflict can be traced to different Jewish and Muslim territorial and religious claims in Israel.  The conflict intensified when Britain took control of the region after WWI. In 1948, Britain, with help from the UN, divided the region into two separate and about equally sized states; one state for Jews, and one state for Arabs (Palestinians).

Growing up in such an accepting and encouraging community, the most recent actions of the Taliban are horrifying. Malala Yousufazi is a teenage Pakistani Taliban activist. This fourteen-year-old girl promotes girls’ education and criticizes the militant group’s behavior when they took over the region where she lives. When she was returning home from school in Pakistan’s northwest, the Taliban stopped her car and shot her in the head.
