January Report Card: The Patriot turns the tables by grading the school on today’s issues

Salad Bar
Let us have lettuce. Bring on the dressing. Shower us in carrots, tomatoes, tiny pieces of bacon, and croutons. The school needs a special area for a real salad bar with tons of options. The few healthy snacks in the vending machine aren’t enough. Giving us a healthy meal allows for variety.
Scheduling of Exams
Going into exams, I expected to get a solid 40 on all of them. Not because the material wasn’t taught and not because the material wasn’t understood, but because of scheduling. Teachers and students alike didn’t have time for the exams before Christmas. Teachers taught up until the last minute, and students had one weekend to study. We get more time off for President’s Day than for studying for 20% of our grade.
Pep Band
All they do is win, win, win no matter what. Pep on their mind, they always show up. Let’s give a hand to the pep band. They are at every basketball game no matter how many other people show up. They deserve the MVP award more than anyone else.
