Students Should Strive for a Cleaner School

Students Should Strive for a Cleaner School

Colin Fullinfaw, Copy Editor

April 11, 2018

Buying objects is a part of everyday life. Pay for it, use it and hopefully throw the wrapper away. For too long, though, trash has been left in the commons and hallways of Skutt Catholic. While there are numerous culprits, the freshmen hallway seems to be the worst part of the school. Please, pick up...

Seeking Academic Acknowledgment

Seeking Academic Acknowledgment

Alaina Anderson, Op/Ed Editor

November 2, 2017

Everyone loves to win; whether it be receiving a gold medal or a first place ribbon, people strive to gain recognition as the best in the activities they participate in, and we, the Flightline staff, feel the students of Skutt Catholic need to work on acknowledging the academic achievements of our peers. When...

2, 4, 6, 8; Who Do You Appreciate?

Maddie Mollner, Student Life Editor

September 9, 2017

Ask anyone with an athletic background, and they'll tell you that cheerleading isn't a sport. To some extent, they're right. Standing on the sidelines yelling “Go team!” doesn't require that much skill. However, we, the cheerleaders of Skutt Catholic, are tired of being labeled as just a team th...

Editorial: Activities Receive Backlash from Teachers

Molly Gubbels, Entertainment Editor

February 27, 2017

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

Nessa Woosley, Staff Morale Editor

February 6, 2017

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

Farewell Birkenstocks, Hello 2017

Nessa Woosley, Staff Morale Editor

January 16, 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...

One Easy Way to Get the Lunchroom to Hate You

One Easy Way to Get the Lunchroom to Hate You

Nessa Woosley, Staff Morale Editor

October 31, 2016

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...

Root for the Home Team

Root for the Home Team

The Flightline Staff

September 26, 2016

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...

Boiling Over Below Zero

Boiling Over Below Zero

Molly Gubbels, Staff Reporter

March 1, 2016

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...

Talent Thwarted

February 29, 2016

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...

The High School Label Maker

The High School Label Maker

Sara Zaleski, Staff Reporter

February 8, 2016

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 ...
