The Real Meaning of School Spirit

Clara Pohlman, Feature Editor

September 14, 2018

I love Skutt Catholic and all that it promotes, encompasses, and reaches to achieve. However, the fact is that our school is majorly lacking in having a well-rounded sense of school spirit in elements other than cheering for athletic teams. We, The Flightline, are tired of recognizing one section of...

Online shopping is probably one of the greatest advancements in modern day technology. I can literally shop anywhere I want as long as I have a device to access the internet.

Sam Klemme, Quintessence Editor-in-Chief

September 5, 2018

Tangerine Reef, created by the experimental group Animal Collective, is a melismatic set of music that is quite honestly confusing to listen to. Let me start off here by saying I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I had never heard of the band or even some of the genres that the album cove...

Family Film “A-X-L” Flops

Family Film “A-X-L” Flops

Natalie Pearson, Entertainment Editor

August 30, 2018

Oliver Daly made his directorial debut last weekend with “A-X-L,” and I was not impressed. That is to say, it’s downright awful. Starring a generic protagonist and his killer robot dog, this movie attempts to hop on the “man’s best friend” bandwagon that has inundated cinema as of late, an...
