Dear Editor,

I have just finished reading “Enjoying Thanksgiving despite Covid” by Nia Tellefsen. It was about how we can still enjoy the holiday, Thanksgiving, after the year off from Covid and how differently we celebrate it, which I agree with because a year set back for everyone doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy Thanksgiving traditions like how we used to. I feel that Thanksgiving should be all about family and friends but still follow Covid rules for everyone’s health. Like, when my family came over from Albany they all took a Covid test just to make sure before coming and my family did as well.

Sincerely,

Dear Editor,

I’ve just got done reading the following article, “What’s it like going back to school?” created by Musayeroh Bah. This specific article has a take on a controversial topic, that is in-person vs online learning. I agree with many of these viewpoints taken on by other people going through such a rough time in today’s world. I would advise to include more viewpoints from teachers and those who’ve done blended learning. Personally I’ve done full remote which is most different from in-person. Full remote holds back from socializing with other students and teachers, so that close bonds can never be fulfilled. But in a world of not knowing what’s around the corner, shall we value socializing over the safety of our own? Or can we as people, manage both at once? May we find a solution.

Sincerely,

Daniel Sanchez

Dear Editor,

I have just finished reading “Fall Sports Round up”, which was about all the outcomes of the sports this season. I think that you could have given more details on Boys Cross Country because I really wanted to know more about it.

Dear Editor,

I just have finished reading, “What’s to be done about the violence?”. It was about a school threat on a Snapchat story. I think that it was a good idea to raise awareness on the incident of December 9th. Violence itself needs to be extinguished as it has hurt others, including my family and I. The article itself was accurately portrayed with valuable lessons and advice. We should bring more awareness on everything, not just because of recent events.

Sincerely,

Dear Editor,

I have just finished reading “Reflections on the first fully in-person school year in almost 2 years” by Musayeroh Bah. It was about the schools transition from online to in-person learning while living in the COVID-19 pandemic. I personally agree with the opinion that transitioning from one to another has been a bit rocky. However as time goes on, this journey we all share as a school can be a learning opportunity in itself. For instance, returning back to in-person learning made me realize I am more productive in school than at home. I also learned it’s much easier for me to socialize outside of the house and not behind a computer!

Dear Editor,

I have just read “What are you listening to?”. It was about asking other students what they were listening to. I love the concept and I want to know what more people are listening to. I would love for the list to be a little longer.

Dear Editor,

I have just finished reading “What’s it like going back to school?”. It was about how everyone was adjusting to the new setting of coming back to school after almost two years. They had some students and teachers reflect on their experience. I think that this was a great topic to bring up in the newspaper because I know as a freshman myself I was able to relate. High school was a whole new world for me. Different people, and more work since I’m in the IBCP program. I’m glad we are back in school so I can focus more on socializing.

Sincerely,

Dear Editor,

I have just finished reading “Fall Sports Round Up”, which was about all the sports that have their season during the fall. I think that it was well written, and it’s always interesting to know how other sports are doing. As a player on the boy’s soccer team, I appreciate that Divine and Dani are recognized for what they have done, because without them we wouldn’t have been division champs.

Sincerely,

Dear Editor,

I have just finished reading “Football Team Goes To The City Championship” by Musayeroh Bah. It was about the PSAL championship game, Curtis vs. E-Hall. I agree with the idea that the varsity football team played a good game. Next time take quotes from more football players. In the article it mentions the gameboard scaring everyone because you couldn’t tell who’s going to win. This is true because when I was sitting on the bleachers everyone was placing bets.

Dear Editor,

I have just finished reading “What’s it like going back to school”, which was about how it feels for students to go back to full in-person school after being remote last year. I think the article was interesting and mostly well written. One thing I would change is the ending because the end felt like it was meant to be continued on to the next page, but it wasn’t.

Sincerely,

Dear Editor,

I have just finished reading “Reflections on the first fully in-person school year in almost 2 years”. It was about student’s opinions about being back in school instead of being remote. I feel like if maybe there was a page for those who decided to stay at home (remote), we could be surprised because they might have a reason that would shock all of us. Interview the people that like remote learning.

Sincerely,

Dear Editor,

I have just finished reading “Athletes work to balance school and sports”. It was about people trying to balance sports and school in their schedules. I think that this is an interesting part of the paper because it is cool to read about other people’s schedules and the struggle they must have trying to balance it all, with negative effects on sports and vice versa. I agree with the statement that PSAL scheduling seems to push academics to the sideline. When I was on the basketball team for my church my schedule changed and I was affected by it. Something like changing your dinner time to later helps a lot with managing your time.

Sincerely, 

Nicholas Calabrese
