Specifically remembering the time I was publicly laughed at for wanting to volunteer in Thailand was the moment I solidified my want to change the world. I had just opened myself up, talking about the passion I had to volunteer overseas, and was only met with a burst of laughter and a quote I will nev...

Allowing students to be late would benefit all

Sophie Kluge, News/Opinion editor

November 28, 2018


Filed under OPINION

Waking up at 6:30 a.m. was no problem for me at the start of my senior year, but now, it’s getting to me. Leaving the warmth of my bed to shower and face the cold outdoors is repulsive to me, and then I think about the icy roads I’m about to face, and the idea becomes even more unattractive than bef...

How not to talk to someone with depression

Nancy Beston, Staff Writer

November 28, 2018


Filed under OPINION

Having depression isn’t exactly a walk in the park. Depression can have many different effects on individuals-- may cause one to have highs and lows, or maybe one has major depression. Some may have functional “good” days and others won’t. Depression isn’t a cookie-cutter term so there are many differ...

EDITORIAL: Reminiscing on friendships

September 13, 2018


Filed under OPINION

Throughout our high school careers we are told that we will never get this time back. We are told to spend it with the people who make us smile uncontrollably and laugh consistently, and as we embark upon our senior year we have found that to be all too true. Multiple studies have shown that humans...

EDITORIAL: Staff encourages students to diversify their education

April 23, 2018


Filed under OPINION

Are you often classified as an art kid, a science geek, or even someone who is a nerd for classical literature? We at the Stampede feel that every student attending C. M. Russell High School should be given the chance to break past the mold that peers, and even adults, cast upon us. Sure, being talented...

EDITORIAL: Stampede staff thanks students

February 28, 2018


Filed under OPINION

CMR is filled with around 1,500 students and staff members, but what makes up a vast majority of our school is the students. We have teacher appreciation week, but where is the appreciation for the students? This month, we at the Stampede want to thank our peers. These are the students you see at every...

January 26, 2018


Filed under OPINION

CMR recently received the results of the Youth Risk Behavior Survey from last year and, along with the data, a sharp wake-up call. Although many agree that the school is “a better place to learn and teach, where relationships lead to success,” the data showed that many students were either engaging...

Key Club’s impact on me

Kaylebb Stahmer, Staff Writer

December 8, 2017


Filed under OPINION

Volunteering. What a crazy concept. These were my thoughts on the matter for the longest time. When a friend of mine attempted to invite me into the fold of Key Club, I didn’t even know what it was, or why I would ever like doing that sort of thing. At first I was skeptical about making a comm...

A Holiday Season Full of Personal Nostalgia

Julia Gremaux, Photo Editor

December 7, 2017


Filed under OPINION

During the holidays I certainly feel much more giving and in the mood to be nicer to everyone around me. Santa Claus has been a long-time expired myth for me, so why do I want to be so nice even if I’m not afraid of being on Santa’s bad side during the holiday season? There is an actual diagnosi...

Crocs are the ugliest shoes in the world

Maygie Li, Staff Writer

December 7, 2017


Filed under OPINION

Ever since 2002, Crocs have flipped the world upside down. The fashion sense of Americans is out of control and needs to be stopped. If anybody doesn’t know what Crocs are, they've been living under a rock, and they should probably stay there because then those horrid shoes don’t exist in their wo...
