Thank you for your editorial addressing the novels we study in English courses at Schreiber. It is always heartening to hear that someone believes the work we do in English matters--and that the representation of women matters, too.  Like you, I passed many of my years in classrooms waiting to encounter...

The Donald Trump alt-right hijacking of the Republican Party warrants a host of historical analogies: business tycoon Henry Ford’s political rise in 1924, Wendell Willkie’s flip-flopping from Democrat to Republican a year before winning the 1940 GOP nomination, and most recently, Ross Perot’s 1992...

In the last issue of The Schreiber Times, there was an opinions article which expressed concern about the lack of recycling pails in the hallways. However, if you want to talk about garbage at Schreiber, that's clearly not the most pressing issue. Take a walk around the hallways, the cafeteria or the C...

This letter is in response to The Sch- reiber Times’ May editorial, which was devoid of rational, truthful thought. The editorial proved that The Schreiber Times, along with many Women’s Day presenters and organizers, lack journalis- tic integrity. On April 30, 311 AD, Roman Emperor Galerius issued...

Good morning: I am writing regarding the editorial printed in the March 6, 2015 edition of the paper entitled “Closed Library Computer Lab.”  The editorial is rife with inaccuracies that I feel need to be addressed. Every morning, the library opens for students at 7:30 a.m., including the...

Dear Schreiber Times, Thank you for recognizing our anti-drug campaign conducted on April 7 when over 1300 plastic containers filled with anti-drug slogans were distributed to second period teachers. We are saddened that your news article only printed responses from students who held negative thoughts...

  I was disappointed with the article about leggings as pants in the last issue of The Schreiber Times. As I began to read the article, I found myself nodding in agreement to the mentions of body policing, as well as other important concepts connected to the shaming of girls who choose to...

Letter to the Editor: Marathon Running

April 30, 2013
Filed under Opinions

I am not much for running.  I try to run for exercise at least 5 times a week, but that takes place in the comfort of my own home in front of a television.  I use the television as a diversion from the pain I associate with running.  I run for health reasons, not because I enjoy it. Running hurts. ...

Letter to the Editor: Interactive Map

Filed under Opinions

It’s never any fun getting lost in an unfamiliar building.  At Schreiber, this happens way too often.  New students and parents have difficulty getting to where they need to be.  Schreiber should invest in an interactive directory that would serve as a map and post bulletins. When freshmen start...

Look around at your classmates.  Look at your friends, acquaintances, those you know and those you don't.  Now, I want you to think about this: every single person in this school has their own issues that they are dealing with.  Everyone has their own story. Imagine if this was your story: after...

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: SOLUTIONS TO PARKING

Many students rely on the Monfort parking lot as a place to park in the morning.  The issue is that parking spots fill up quickly, and there is no other place to park.  If a student is caught in the teacher parking lot, which is usually empty, they will receive a punishment from the school. Also, if...

Every day the Schreiber custodians put in tons of extra hours before and after school in order to keep our school sanitary and hygienic.  Without these hardworking employees, students would get sick from the germs that they are surrounded by each day.  Schreiber custodians should be commended for all...
