As the 2016-2017 school year really heats up, many students are being pulled out of school for various activities. Though these activities have led to slightly more vacant classrooms, teachers have begun taking unnecessary offense toward their absences, leading to a great deal of stress for involved...

Theatrics Make Show Choir Cheaper

Theatrics Make Show Choir Cheaper

Massive sets, leads roles, crazy wigs, and obvious themes- all characteristics of a theatrical “show choir,” if one could even call it that. We, the members of Vivace, believe the recent gradual transition to theatrical shows in the world of the sport poses an existential threat to show choir. The...

Farewell Birkenstocks, Hello 2017

Over the years at Skutt Catholic, students have developed some bad habits that, as a whole, we should pledge to work on for our 2017 resolutions. Stop wearing Birkenstocks. I feel like no one actually likes this ancient style of shoe, but are rather brainwashed into thinking the 130 dollar in...

The lunch bell rings. You sprint down the hallway, pushing and shoving just to secure a close spot in line. No matter your efforts, there's always a group of people who make this chaotic scene even worse: the line cutters. We at the Flightline strongly dislike how seemingly acceptable it has become...

In Las Vegas, a home field advantage is worth three points on paper. This means if two teams are equal, then the home team is given a three point advantage in the spread. This, of course, doesn’t mean anything when the teams meet on the field. However, a home field advantage, given that it is taken...

Dearest Skutt Catholic administration (specifically those of you who have the power to change the weather), We at the Flightline have noticed a problem in our own high school classrooms that we simply can't stand any longer: a school-wide lack of warmth has left many to believe that the clutches o...

The Skutt Catholic Performing Arts Departments stands tall, talented and proud on their home field, the 23-year-old Cafecommotorium, amongst the glittering Goliath facilities of sports teams and activities.  We at The Flightline want to call attention towards the lacking facilities provided to the arts de...

Dear Mr. Vernon: We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was that we did wrong. What we did was wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write this essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us, in the ...

The average person spends 26 years of their life sleeping. Such an enormous part of life must reasonably be somewhat important, and it is. Sleep revitalizes and prepares the body for the next day. It is an integral part of the growth and development of the human body, most importantly during the ...

Sandwiched between Godfather's Tuesdays and Fazoli's Thursdays on every week of the school lunch calendar are PYP Wednesdays, and no one is too happy about it. We at The Flightline feel that PYP, a local catering company and lunch provider, offers the lowest quality of food and value of all companies...

Work Study: Improving

Filed under Editorial, Opinion

Paying for school is no easy A. Regardless of their situation, students are united by this common struggle. Of course, there are a lucky few to receive a little extra help from the work study program at Skutt Catholic. However, work study is not as effective as we think it has the potential to be; that...

We at the Flightline would like to take a moment to call out some of the highlights and lowlights of the first half of the third quarter. Let’s reflect, shall we? Cheers to the show choir for performing their show in front of the entire school at lunch. Vivace has been rehearsing since September, contri...
