    Homecoming 2017

    Jackson Winters, Staff Writer

    February 28, 2017

    Homecoming at Poplar Bluff means three things: homecoming court, pep rallies, and sports. The homecoming court at PBHS is always an excellent opportunity for students to get involved in school activities, and there is no better way to do that than letting students vote in their own queen. Mr. Davi...

    Mr. McDaniel Takes the Spotlight

    Jackson Winters, Staff Writer

    January 11, 2017

    As a student, it is sometimes hard to understand the connection between teacher and student. The attachment of a Mr or Ms to the front of each of our names is something unprecedented to us as students, but the aspect of “freshman” teachers helps us understand this idea. Mr. McDaniel, a first year...

         It is certain that many people will come into a person’s life, and it is just as certain that only few will stay. Mrs. Fritts, an English teacher in room 505, is the staying kind. An alumni of Arkansas State University, she has been teaching for thirty-one years. When asked about her time spent as a teacher, all she could talk about were her children. The memories made as a teacher will always ...

Mr. Kiehne Leaves PBHS

Megan Thomas

     I am sad to report that Mr. Kiehne, our principal of six years, will be leaving PBHS. In his time here we have added the advisory hour, given each student access to the MacBooks for better learning, and began Capturing Kids Hearts. The greatest part of Kiehne’s time at PBHS has been the steady improvement of student graduation rate and EOC testing scores. His experience here put down to one word was “ch...

       Colin Angle, one of the founders of the company iRobot once said: “People are fascinated by robots because they’re machines that can mimic life.” The robotics team seems to be just that.

Jackson Winters, Staff Writer

As another election comes to a close, it is time for each party to reflect upon the past year and how it will affect them moving forward. This is a difficult task not just for congressmen and women, but average Americans as well.   For Republicans, things are looking up. They currently have control of the house, senate, and presidency. This means they will have an easier time passing their legislation and ...
