Cheers to Mother’s Day. A huge shout out to all of the amazing mothers out there. Thank you for all you do.

Cheers to Teacher Appreciation Week. Along with mothers, we also want to give a shout out to all of our Starr’s Mill teachers. Thank you for coming in early, staying late, grading on weekends, dealing with annoying teens, and keeping a smile on your face through it all.
Cheers to Honors Night last night. Congratulations to everyone who earned awards. The Prowler recognized Editor-in-Chief Caroline Hubbard and Abby Carter, along with those who hit 100 stories or events covered, Addie Ellison, Caroline Hubbard, Annika Pepper, and Joslyn Weber. We also announced our Journalist of the Year, Mateya Petrova.
Cheers to body positivity. It is the time of year where people are starting to wear shorts, cropped tops, and less coverage clothing. During this time it is important to remember to be confident in what you wear, and never put others down for their choice of clothing.
Cheers to May holidays. We have Cinco de Mayo coming up on Thursday, but right before that all of our Star Wars fans will be celebrating May the 4th (be with you).
Jeers to this week kicking off AP exams. Who is ready to pull constant all-nighters and have multiple mental breakdowns? Yay!

Jeers to group projects when no one helps. Group projects are supposed to be a fun way to divide up hard work, but instead one person always ends up doing everything.
Jeers to having tests on the same day as AP exams and Milestones. Look teachers, we understand if it is not the exam or Milestone for your class and you give a test, but at least allow students class time to make it up or give an alternative assignment that can be done at home. But if it is the exam or Milestone for your class, and you still give a test or homework that day, we now harbor ill feelings toward your class. Respectfully, of course.
Jeers to body odor. JUST. WEAR. DEODORANT. It is not that hard! No one wants to smell you.
Jeers to the location of our 700 hall vending machines. Now we feel the need to be more specific here, it is not the spot itself that makes this a jeer. It is the people that crowd it during class change. It does not take five people to get one person some chips.
