50’s day!

by Ally Thompson

On March 5, 2021, the Friday before Spring Break, 11th grade U.S. History students participated in 50’s day. During this big annual project, students put together a presentation about the music, dances, foods, fashion, and games of the time period. After about a week of preparation, Mrs. Laney’s class strutted the halls wearing famous 1950’s attire. Juniors ate food ordered from Bill’s Hamburgers and Jack’s and danced to some of the popular music.

One Year And Counting

by Jenia Bolton

It has officially been a year since Corona took over the world.  From being out of school for spring break to pushing out the remainder of the year, this virus truly took a toll on most people.  With schools being back in session, many changes were made to follow the precautions brought by the virus.  Most would have thought a year into a pandemic would mean progress, but sadly most things are how they were at the beginning of this pandemic.

Components of Propaganda

by Emma Kate Wright

Components of propaganda, throughout history, are rooted in the misuse and abuse of the resources available to us at the time.  In the modern-day, fake articles are often written and shared on social media to alter situations or someone’s opinion on something.  Newspaper owners William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer started the concept (or at least made everyone aware) of yellow journalism in the 1890s.  This concept of fake news was kept alive by the people as everyone wanted to read something more interesting and crazy than what was actually happening at the time.

A New Normal

By Emma Kate Wright   The Prowl News

 Homecoming week at Amory High School looked a little different this year.  Just as looks can be deceiving, so was this week as students were initially disappointed when learning of various changes being made to the normal routine of homecoming parades and pep rallies.  As students showed up to school on Monday, it was apparent that most students had the same mindset of making the best out of their unconventional week.

“Pull your mask up, please” – What It’s Like Going to a Public High School During a Pandemic

As I sat in my car blasting the AC and “Perfect Day” (yes the theme song from Legally Blonde…it’s a great motivational song), I crossed items off of my mental checklist. Backpack, at least one pencil, schedule, coffee…mask.  I stepped out into the blazing Mississippi sun sporting my leopard print fabric mask and joined my peers in a line outside of the main entrance. The last time that the majority of us were in this building,
