  • Dear Felipe,

    I completely agree with you that this is a great advancement. It is important for us to protect the next generation. We want our youth to prosper in the future. In response to “Not only that but now kids are more protected from reviving covid, it might not be a big difference but a little bit of that dose still helps protect…Read More

  • Dear Michelle,

    I really liked your point when you said “I agree that it is good to have kids start learning new things at a young age and experimenting with life and the outside world.” I agree with you that new experiences are the best times of growth for a child. Personally, I feel that times when I was pushed out of my comfort zone have…Read More

    • Dear Emmy, I love how detailed your book review is. It makes be want to read Virgin Suicides!

    • This book sounds like it is very interesting and disturbing at the same time. I find it interesting that the book is told from the boys point of view, and although they seem like horrible people, I am curious to know more about how they viewed this situation.

    Should school uniforms be required?

    I believe that uniforms should not be required at Judge. Students who attend Judge find that uniforms are an unnecessary hassle. The Judge Memorial students feel that they would benefit from an absence in uniform.  Uniforms are uncomfortable and prevent...

    • I really appreciate you speaking out about this problem! I completely agree with you about how uniforms are too expensive and hard to find. My family has struggled to obtain me a uniform for the past couple years and when we found someplace that had my size, it was incredibly expensive. I like how you brought up that being able to wear what you want helps you to express your identity. I agree with that, and I believe that it is important to promote your identity, and well-being without having to get in trouble. If schools think that uniforms are more professional and they promote the school, then they should at least make them more comfortable and more affordable.

    • Dear Emmy,

      I am impressed by your post, “Should school’s unforms be required?” because it is impressive that schools still use unforms. I think this is impressive how this is a requirement in some schools.

      One sentence that stood out to me was that “Wilcox mentions a valid argument in that “itchy and tight clothes can make it difficult for a student to focus on academics.”  I think that this stood out to me because I agree with this due to the fact that at one time in my life I had to wear uniforms in elementary and I would never like it.

      Thank you for writing this amazing post. I am looking forward to your other writing.

  • Emmy commented on the post, "Ala's Story" Book Review

    Dear Brody,

    I am glad to hear that you were presently surprised with your book. I appreciate your honesty in that it wasn’t your favorite book to read, yet you enjoyed the journey. You state “Throughout the book, it’s clear that Ala isn’t the most sophisticated writer, nor the most experienced, but her connection to the material is clear.” I a…Read More
