Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day

Tomorrow is one of my favorite days of the year, Saint Patrick’s Day!  This often overlooked holiday honors the memory of the patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick, who legend says drove all snakes off the island.  It can be incredibly fun to participate in, so show your Irish pride and celebrate using the...

Racism Assembly Starts the Right Conversation

                            As many loyal Voice readers might know,  I tend to be very critical of how CC handles discussions on race. Last year’s ADL program was clumsy at best, and presented an overly simplified and unsophisticated take on racism.  During this...

Fencing Celebrates 50 Years of Success With a State’s Victory

This past weekend, CC’s fencing team did spectacularly well at the Massachusetts State Fencing Championship.  The boys’ team won first in the state, and the girls’ team placed second.  This accomplishment is especially noteworthy because the CC fencing program, one of the strongest in the country, turned fifty years old this season.  CC has...

Why I Still Love Snow Days

As I’m sure is news to absolutely no one, Concord and Carlisle is experiencing a record breaking amount of snowstorms, and CC has gotten a seemingly absurd amount of snow days as a result.  As Editor-in-Chief of a paper that meets on Mondays, I can personally say that snow days have created a huge inconvenience for...

The Voice’s Winter Music Picks

Tia: I really like The Piano Guys.  They do amazing, unique covers.  I can’t even convey how awesome they are, but you’ve got to check them out. Rahul: 80’s music.  Earth, Wind, and Fire is a great band. (Editor’s note:  Rahul hasn’t listened to a band formed after the early 80’s.  Ever.) Jenna: I’ve...

Why Ferguson Matters

Why Ferguson Matters

We live in a sheltered bubble in Concord. Like really, really sheltered. Our police log is filled with hysterical people complaining about a troublesome raccoon or their neighbor’s poor parking skills. For most of us, a crisis would be not getting into our dream school. A frustrating day might include not finding good parking in...

Let’s Talk About Feminism

In recent weeks, CC seems to have been taken over by debates on feminism, and personally, I’m very okay with it.  In only a few short years, I’ve gone from being relatively ambivalent about the issue to taking a hardline stance.  This evolution mirrors that of many girls my age, and I think I...

Everything You Ever Needed to Know About Mindfulness

I’ve been doing some more digging into mindfulness, since my last article generated a fair amount of controversy about the topic.  I had the chance to sit down with Nurse DeBruzzi, mindfulness expert Pam Ressler, and social studies teacher Mr. Hoblitzelle, who all added their unique perspective on the program.  Mrs. DeBruzzi mainly emphasized that...

Taylor Swift’s Latest Album Stuns

After years of trying to resist the infectious pop/country ballads of America’s biggest musical superstar, I have given in.  Taylor Swift is actually pretty darn good.  And yes, her latest album, 1989, which was released late last night, is pure pop, a sugar rush transmitted through your earbuds.  And it’s really, really catchy. Each...
