Earth, the lush, aquatic, Goldilocks planet, has been supporting all kinds of life for billions of years –and it is now becoming sick. Every year, an average of 9 billion tons of carbon dioxide are emitted, and to no surprise, this number is increasing year after year. Such greenhouse gas emissions...

With blossoming flowers comes flourishing stress for all grades at Loomis Chaffee.

“Bee” Conscious: Bees on Campus

May 15, 2016

It’s finally spring again! A lot of things are back: shorts, flip-flops, and most importantly, bees! If bees sound irrelevant to you at this point, please keep reading this article. Bees are fundamental to our lives. Not only do they produce honey (what most of us are aware of), they also pollinate...

Qatar in the past few years has been the center of injustice, from the construction of the World Cup stadium to other criminal issues.

I started my journalistic career by writing for a pilot program for the kids section of The Denver Post in the third grade. Mostly, I wrote pieces that lacked much substance and attention to grammar rules that would become (unbeknownst to me) edited by strangers until unrecognizable. They sent me products...

Senior Reflection

April 14, 2016

I am a senior from New York City and a three-year Ammidon girl. Every day I wake up to the view of Taylor next door and the sun coming over the meadow. I get dressed, walk to class in a hurry, and never think twice about the little things that make up the place that I call my second home. It is odd ...

What does being a headmaster entail? What do you see as the most challenging part of your job? Although it does say headmaster on my door, my title is “head of school”. A head master is generally seen as male, and I really do not like the female version which is “headmistress” - Therefore, I am the...

Holi Festival: Cultural Appreciation at its Finest

The clock struck 7:00pm — the first puff of powder flew into the air. Within seconds, the Underclassman Quad became a sea of bright neon colors. Bright blues, pinks, and yellows stained the clothes with vibrant, accidental tie-dye designs. Smiling faces covered in powder from head to toe laughed an...

A familiar statement made by choir members is, “we never sing in English!” True, good choirs rarely sing in English, but that is not the simple reason behind the variety of the languages in our music. Recently, as I skimmed through the global studies courses, I realized that concert choir is actually...
