We spend our whole lives under the stars but should we allow them and superstitions to influence our decisions? The Bell staff voted 11-10 that yes, astrology and superstitions should affect decision-making. A majority of the class felt that astrology and superstition does affect decision making, bu...

Spring Cleaning or Bathrobe Finding?

Spring Cleaning or Bathrobe Finding?

Emily Johannes and It's my Opinion: Managing Editor

March 31, 2017


Filed under Opinion

One of my favorite things to do is to clean out my closet at the end of winter. There is something very satisfactory about purging out the old things and making room for the new. Out with the old, past fashions, in with whatever new trend is making its mark. I have tossed out some pretty embarrassing ...

What New Theater?

What New Theater?

Filed under Opinion

This “no performance theater” thing has really prepared me for my future as a performer. I’m going to be able to adjust to many different settings when I tour. However, it would be nice for LHS to be able to call a theater (big enough to hold more than 250 people) home. I’m one of the biggest...

For those who may not know, I was born in England  and my parents are both from Kenya. I know this may be a surprise so to make a long story short, after moving from Kenya, my parents reached London and had plans to build a life there as soon as I was born, with the help of my aunt. At the same time...

Luck is a matter of favorable or unfavorable results in life. But is luck a superstitious force or a matter of balance in the universe? Do we make our own luck or does it come to us randomly if we happen to be in the right place at the right time? The world may never know. I think the positivity we...

Okay yes, I’m a single pringle, but I also think it’s great when people find someone to share all their time with. Of course, I want my Cinderella happily-ever-after ending too! For heaven’s sake, I am a Disney Princess at heart. However, I’m willing to wait for it and just bring joy to my own...

Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and giant teddy bears are flying off the shelves as couples prepare for a day of flowers, rom-coms and fancy dinners. However, for some February 14 is simply the beginning of a month of discounted chocolate. Whether a student is already picking out their date attire or sta...

Filed under Opinion

The Bell staff prepared for an uncomfortable conversation. We would discuss the achievement gap, the distance in educational achievement between groups of students at the school. After investigating the topic for an In-Depth Achievement Gap (READ the STORY) in The Bell's February issue, we wondered, can LHS cl...

Love. It seems stupid to have an entire day dedicated to it, but here we are. There are pressures all around us to be cute and romantic. And if we don’t face those pressures because of a lack of someone special, the idea of being sad and lonely on Valentine’s Day surrounds us. Being sweet and rom...

Our school is diverse, there’s no doubt about that, but how well appreciated is diversity in our society? Sure, every student is unique in their own way. Still, the cultural and social elements of which learning in classrooms with peers of different genders, races, political views, religions and beliefs i...
