Proposal for a Quarter-Second-Video-Sharing App

Noah Finer | May 27 2016 | in Humor

Vine has always been a prominent app for sharing only six seconds of content to the world and has grown tremendously.

But what if there was an app that could keep up with our quickly changing society and share videos just 1/4th of a second long? “[Vine] really loses the classi...

New Mindfulness Program

Grace Hedlund and Chloe Cope | May 17 2016 | in Student News

This year, a new mindfulness program was introduced to the students and staff at Fairview by counselor Matt Mowen and biology teacher Becky Roetto. The program has not been exposed to many students in the classroom, but Mowen says it could be if teachers become more familiar with the practice. “I’ve never really been in direct contact with the wellness thing,” said senior Kendall Webster. Webster is among the many busy Fairview students who have not experienced mindfulness. Mindfulness was mainly introduced to ninth graders th...
