One Direction Goes in Different Directions!

There’s sad news for “Directioners” today.  The British boy band One Direction has decided to split and go their separate ways. The news came just days after Zayn Malik announced he would be parting ways with the band to be a “normal 22 year old”.  On Sunday night, after One Direction’s concert in Johannesburg, South Africa, the remaining members: Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne, posted on the One Direction Facebook page, and said, “There are no words to express our amazing  time performing and living the dream but we can’t imagine doing it without our brother, Zayn Malik….After Zayn came to us saying he was quitting we began to think about our futures and if we wanted to do something else.  Louis especially has been talking about beginning a soccer career. Harry is rumored to be planning...

New London’s To Close

New London’s To Close

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS A SPOOF ARTICLE THAT WAS WRITTEN FOR THE APRIL FOOLS ISSUE. NEW LONDON’S IS INDEED IN BUSINESS, AND IS READY TO SERVE ITS CUSTOMERS! After serving the Concord community for over 45 years, New London pizza will serve its last slice on April 1st. New London Pizza first opened its doors in 1967 and since then, has been serving delicious treats to generations of Concordians.  Their trademark item is their Greek-style pizza with spinach, feta cheese and tomatoes, although my favorite item was always their steak and cheese with peppers.  The owner of New London chalks the closing up to too much competition, noting that “over the past few years we’ve been losing business to Sorrento’s because their pizza is so much better than ours.”  The student reaction has been mixed; with some...

1-1 Cancelled

1-1 Cancelled

Beginning this past Friday, the Concord school system made a huge change to their plans in terms of 1-1.  Originally, 1-1 was designed to decrease the amount of time the students just sat around simply absorbing (or not absorbing) facts.  It was intended to enhance the personalized learning style. For over two years, the Tech Committee has been working on implementing 1-1, and although there have been many (and I mean many) complaints, the number of people in support of 1-1 clearly outweighed the number against it.  Within the past two weeks however, people’s minds have changed drastically.  There have been many worries that people will have arthritis when they get older, due to the amount of time spent typing.  People’s eye doctors also fear that this will have long-lasting negative impacts on the eyesight of their patients.  Mr. Badalament participated...

New School, New Style: CCHS Uniform

With the much anticipated move to the new building, our student body has been counting down the days to an improved and beautified high school. But the new school is not the only thing changing its look; in the 2015-2016 school year, our CCHS administration will be instituting a strictly enforced student uniform. Our administration expects a slight pushback at first, yet hopes that a change in student apparel will diminish distractions in the classroom, and minimize pressure for students in their daily wear. “Rules of apparel have been discussed for years,”states Rigby, “and hopefully the new school uniform will give the student body a sense of unity.” In aspiring to unify our students, and keep the focus on work, a school uniform does seem like a smart decision. Many students are wondering what exactly this...

Kentucky Drops Out of March Madness Tournament

In a shocking turn of events, the University of Kentucky Wildcats have made the decision to leave the NCAA mens’ basketball tournament. As for the reason, Coach John Calipari cited stress, but it is clear that something else must have caused this successful team to abruptly halt its march toward the title.  Some speculate that Calipari was overcome by the pressure of upholding the spotless record of the team. Kentucky’s undefeated record seemed to be in serious danger during Saturday’s game versus Notre Dame. It was a nail-biter; the end score a close 68-66. But, despite the mere two point difference, the game does not taint Kentucky’s 38-0 record.  Kentucky was in the Final Four, and two wins away from winning the tournament, so it is even more of a surprise that Calipari has decided to...

New Schedule, New You

Say no more to embarrassing in-class naps! The new schedule that is coming for the 2015-2016 school year is going to treat our students well. Sure, classes will be longer, but did you know that the school committee has also added in a mandatory nap/meditation time? The block of relaxation will be situated comfortably after lunch to promote digestion and brain function! The decision was a hard earned victory for the student committee members, and teachers support the decision as well. The built in relaxation block will not only be for students, but is also available to teachers! The sleeping quarters will be separated for males and females to discourage risky behavior. The rooms will also be modeled after peaceful spaces of meditation furnished with mini waterfalls, incense, and steam machines. The school is...

A New Name to go with the New Face

As we move into the new school, we are making several other changes to how the high school runs. Most importantly, the principal and superintendent have decided to change the school’s name to Carlisle Concord Regional High School. Over the summer, sports team uniforms and the official CC logo will be changed to read Carlisle Concord. The decision has been in the works for a few months, and was reached after numerous Carlisle students spoke of developing inferiority complexes upon always seeing their town listed second. In addition, our name is now alphabetized, which is a major perk!  And don’t worry, although we have gotten used to Concord Carlisle, eventually Carlisle Concord will roll off the tongue. Our school has never had a better time to make a change. We will say goodbye to our seniors...
