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...

EDITORIAL: First step to solving problems is to look to each other

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...

Journalistic writing an underrated art that is being ignored

Journalistic writing an underrated art that is being ignored

Gabrielle Pope, Online editor

December 1, 2017

Filed under OPINION

The media -- and journalists in general -- have gotten such a bad rap lately with all these ideas of “fake news” circulating and biased news stations. This negative attention has made me question what it really means to be a journalist. Journalism is taking other people’s words and experiences...

Student journalist gleans lessons from peers as well as experts at conference

Mackenzie George, Editor in Chief

October 13, 2017

Filed under OPINION

Part of me still wonders whether the 2017 Al Neuharth Free Spirit and Journalism Conference was some kind of social experiment. Throw a kid from every state, plus one from D.C., into a room and see what happens. If I’d been in on it, I would have predicted cliques would form and competition would ensu...

Filed under OPINION

I thought I knew what my biggest fear was. I had it all lined out in a concrete answer, the way some people might describe their terror of the dark. My spiel went something like this: “I fear complacency. My biggest fear is that one day, people will become desensitized to all these awful things happe...

Exchange student meets her family again after ten months

Aurora Oden, Staff Writer

June 7, 2017

Filed under OPINION

The feeling of getting closer to summer break is always something special to me. The excitement of knowing that I have the whole summer in front of me without worrying about school is to me, amazing. Just knowing that I can spend my time on whatever I want to do is something I’m really looking forward...
