Parking and Weather

Arshan Aidun | Apr 12 2017 | in Student News

The past couple of weeks have been very snowy, icy, windy, and dusty. The result? Traffic on the way to school, and back, plus, the snow day and most of the cars parked outside covered halfway in dust. Our snowiest days were in the first week of January, and high winds higher than 21 miles per hour were reached from January ninth through January eleventh. “It was very inconvenient, and it was pretty dangerous.” junior  Noah Kendall said. Snow gets plowed on the streets around Fairview, but the neighborhoods be...

Laura Brack, Sara McCrea and Ben Gelderloos | Apr 4 2017 | in OP-ED

Rich. Privileged. White. Subaru-owner. Most of us have heard this stereotype that supposedly defines Fairview. Yet these words can not define 2,153 students who come from drastically different backgrounds and experiences. We derive much of our identities from our cultures, and much of our culture reflects who we are. Though we may have set out with this issue of the Royal Banner Newsmagazine to find out how our cultures define us, we instead found that on many levels, especially within high school, we have the power to craft a culture of our own. lt...

Review of "Passengers"

Emma O'Leary | Mar 1 2017 | in Arts & Culture

Imagine waking up all by yourself, alone on a giant space ship, only to find out that it was a malfunction. The journey was supposed to take more than 100 years, yet you are awake. You were woken up 90 years before you were supposed to be and so the startling truth dawns upon you: unless you can find a way to go into “hibernation” again, you will die alone en route to a planet where you were supposed to find a new life. ...

We Should Recognize Ramp Climbing as Gym Credit

Nate Bilbrey | Feb 21 2017 | in Humor

Fairview students have only five minutes between classes to complete a long, treacherous trek up a steep slope, crowded with hundreds of students going every direction. This amount of physical exhaustion from students is much greater than students from other schools, only having to deal with painless, horizontal hallways. In order to distinguish the effort put in by Fairview students compared those of othe...
