RHS commemorates Black History Month

Jalissa Long-Jolley, Business Manager

February 22, 2017

In order to progress in an era where our constant battle is freedom and happiness, it is essential that we remember how far we have already come. Black History Month allows us to celebrate all of the African-Americans who stepped up to the plate and changed our stubborn society for the better.  Without their important achievements, we would not be enjoying simple life pleasures such as living and working together where we aspire and do what satisfies our own happiness. Black History Month first started in 1926 by Dr. Carter G Woodson as “annual negro history week.” In 1976, the whole month of February was celebrated as we know it today, with the convenience of also reminiscing the birthdays of Frederick Douglass, an outspoken fugitive slave whose experiences were used as a testimony...

Super Bowl comeback cements Brady's legendary status

Third quarter, down by 25, if you could put the ball into anyone's hands, who would it be? As most of America saw Sunday, it should be NFL golden boy, Tom Brady. Four rings already in his pocket, New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady lead the most legendary comeback in NFL history. The first quarter of the game had both teams tied at zero and both teams trying not to make any mistakes. Good defensive coverage combined with some miscues from both offenses made it look like this would be a close low scoring game. But, then came the second quarter. Atlanta Falcons...

Rex E. Corless' family finally see the new weight room.

The “weight” is over-Rex E. Corless weight room is open

February 3, 2017

Year after year, Roseville High School tries to send out the best athletes to compete against other top schools in our state. These student-athletes play hard and train even harder in practice. However, in recent years, the condition and interior of our weight room has been slowly deteriorating. Ripped seats, old equipment, chipped dumbbells, and an overall drab, outdated feel lead to less and less students using it to better themselves. Now, with the help of the Rex E. Corless family, everything has changed. Corless was a presence in our school for 34 years while he...

Destiny Stewart, Staff Reporter

January 6, 2017

The New Year is quickly nearing, and the holiday season is already in full effect. Some people have already started reevaluating their life decisions. Well, now is the time to sit and make a list of notable resolutions that are easy to stick to. “The biggest new year resolution for 2017 is to procrastinate less and be more productive with my time,” senior Jada Simmons said. A New Year’s resolution is a tradition, in which a person makes a promise to do an act of self improvement  or something slightly nice, such as opening doors for people beginning after the new year. Resolutions can be hard to stick to, but having a partner may keep you consistent with the improvement(s) you want to make. When people think about the new year, they think of a fresh start, and how they can...

RHS hosts blood drive

December 14, 2016

The American Red Cross traveled to RHS on Tuesday, Dec. 13 for a blood drive sponsored by Student Assembly. Students, over the age of 17, signed up last week to donate blood. Brave students had to go through a questionnaire, finger pricking, and needles in order to donate blood. These students did not just do it to get out of class though; they were trying to save lives. “I felt that since I volunteer at a hospital and see patients every day that I needed to do a little more to give back. Donating blood sounded like a great idea to do that,” senior Safa Shkoukani...

Dallas cowboys 11-1 Dallas holds the best record in the NFL and for good reason too. Credit Jerry Jones for taking the phrase “football is won in the trenches,” and proving it. They boast what is most likely a top 5 offensive line personnel of all time, the NFL’s leading rusher, and a poised rookie throwing dimes. Dallas has been reminiscent of their “triplets” era and have some possible Superbowls in their future. Oakland Raiders 10-2 Oakland’s offense has been on fire on their current 6 game win streak. Their young offensive nucleus has...

December 5, 2016

Roseville began the holiday season this past Thursday with the 30th annual tree lighting and sing-a-long.
