The end is near. It’s June and in a matter of weeks we will be
graduating and I know that pretty much all of us cannot wait to walk across
that stage and get our diploma, to walk out the doors of the school for the
last time and never look back. This is a very exciting time in our lives and we

Don't Hate Just Because They're Grade 8
This past Friday, May 8th, the grade eight students from Maple Grove came to YCMHS for orientation day.

As a 13-14 year old, going from a school of about 400 students to one of over 1100, the oldest students to the youngest, it's quite a terrifying scenario.

Ebola - The Disease Sweeping the World
Current events are the things that we constantly hear about and think about, the past few weeks we have been hearing a lot about the West African virus known as Ebola. This sickness is concerning for many as you can have it without knowing that you do have it, while it is still experimental there is a vaccination being created and tested as we read articles and think about it. Though the vaccination is being created and worked on in Canada it is being shared globally due to the high risk of it spreading not only in Canada but internationally. Though Ebola has similar signs to the flu it is worse and could cause death. Unfortunately because the disease ...
