English Teacher Challenging Traditional Grading Methods

Chloe Cope | Sep 26 2016 | in Student News

English teacher Angela Hunt is reducing the importance and stress of grades by replacing them with other forms of grading as well as completing a calm mindfulness practice at the beginning of each class to relax her students. “I believe that grades serve as data to show students how they’re doing, and I’m one of the teachers that believes in the philosophy of using a coding system instead of points,” said Hunt. “We have a grade agreement at the beginning and they write me a letter, and they have a portfolio [which] acts as evidence ...

Violence At Fairview

Nate Bilbrey and Denny Stong | Sep 23 2016 | in Student News

 Fairview’s administrators think that physical violence at Fairview is not a big problem, but other forms of violence, like bullying are more of a problem. “Instances of violence here at Fairview are few and far between.

Solutions To Drinking And Drugs At Dances

Molly Box and Kate Martin | Sep 21 2016 | in Student News

Whether it’s the homecoming dance or the crowded informals, stories circulate through the dance floor about who drank what or who’s on which drug. But we don’t hear the stories about who helped who out of a dangerous situation, or who drove who home because they were passed out. This past week was the traditional homecoming dance, and just two weeks ago was the first informal of the year. With the week comes elaborate homecoming proposals, eccentric spirit days, booking party buses, planning outfits, endless nerves, and of course the constant safety warnings abou...

Clique Culture

Patrick Stachniak and Ben Gelderloos | Sep 21 2016 | in OP-ED

The classic depiction of a high school shows a rigid hierarchy, with jocks on top and everyone else beneath them. Such is not the case at Fairview. Fairview isn’t that stupid school where the jocks are worshipped and everyone swims in their wake. We have been enlightened, and reached a place where everyone, be you nerd or jock, can prosper. The social structure here is less set in stone, yet still questions r...

A Proposal to Further Secure BVSD Emails

Carter Hanson and Noah Finer | Sep 19 2016 | in Humor

In early August, BVSD updated all student account usernames, changing them to not include student IDs due to security concerns. This change made all of the usernames follow the form of first initial, middle initial, last name, and then two digits to avoid duplicates.  Unfortunately, many students are not educated about the serious threat of email-fraud, which is the cause of much daily stress throughout the st...
