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...

When the ball drops I never shout or post, “New Year, New Me,” because I know I’m still going to be the same doofus from 11:59 p.m. once 12:00 a.m. hits. Yet, after the turn of the calendar year, there always comes a sudden wave of new joggers, weightlifters, dieters and habit breakers sweeping the ...

The holidays are in full swing and with them comes the traditional groups of students coming together to help others. This helping season forces the question, does LHS give back to the community enough during the holidays? Only two members of the Bell Staff voted “yes” while 20 said “no.” There i...

Need to talk to a friend? Why wait until class to see them? Just send them a direct message. Can’t wait for the Ugg boots you ordered to come in? Use same day delivery. Need a good cake? Use instant mix and skip the hassle of making batter. We love getting things we want at the instant we want the...

This Christmas, my mother has cut me off on the abundance of fuzzy socks I’m allowed. I’m never sure what to ask for other than those cute socks. However, this year is a bit different. I’m going off to college so of course all of the dorm necessities come to mind. But even that isn’t something I t...

It’s the end of the semester and we students may feel more excitement than usual as winter break is getting closer. But before we can bask in the joys of the holidays, there may be a heavier amount of stress weighing on us as we prepare to take tests accumulated from all the other previous ones taken. T...

This summer a group of us boys on the Cross Country team decided to push ourselves and each run 1000 miles in the 14 weeks of the off season. 12 miles became our daily diet on runs and we often added runs on Sundays to meet our goal. We jumped through hoops, worked around schedules, jobs, vacations, in...

There are at least two sides to every person. There’s a part of us everyone shows, acting like everything is ok. But there’s also a part of us that not many see. That one maybe a depressing side that I know I try to hide. Mental health is way more important to me than physical health (sorry eve...

I really love food… like a lot. A lot a lot. This makes it easy for me to think of my favorite holiday: Thanksgiving. There’s turkey, mashed potatoes and so much bread and gravy on everything. Just thinking about the spread we have every year is making me reach for my lunch right now. For Thanksgiving thi...

There are an infinite amount of ways to communicate with each other. Countless languages, letters, symbols, texts, “DMs” and codes are all used to let one person share the thoughts they have in their head with someone else. Dialect changes from one region to another and creates diversity in culture. I...
