Classrooms Get A Touch Of Intelligence With Smart Boards

Ms. Stanley teaches Spanish with the help of a Smart Board.

San Mateo High keeps getting better in every aspect, including technology. Smart Boards are now installed in most of the classrooms. These classes include math, foreign languages and science. Smart Boards are very useful and easy to use for teachers, but the whole point about Smart Boards is for us, the students, to understand and learn better by visualizing everything on that high-tech board. Mrs. Rosenthal and Mr. Rainaldi, who are Algebra, Geometry and Pre-Calculus teachers, say that they have enjoyed having a Smart Board in their classroom. Mr. Rainaldi, who has had the Smart Board installed since last year,…

GSA Stays Silent While Raising Voices For Gay Rights

On Friday the 16 The Day Of Silence (DOS) took place. During lunch at the rally, everyone wearing purple wore it to support DOS. For those of you who don’t know what the Day Of Silence is, it is a social protest in which all participating figures don’t speak in order to symbolize the lack of voice that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people (LGBT) have in society. There was a big turnout of people who participated on Friday, but it was apparent that some had difficulty keeping the vow of silence. As a participant, I too found the prospect…

ChalkFest Hits Mateo

[slide] Friday April 30th was Chalk Fest, and the talented people who participated spent all Friday morning chalking up the area outside the ampi-theater near the C-Building. The drawings people made with the chalk were all album covers of popular music. Among them were Owl City, Pink Floyd, Death Cab For Cutie, Jimi Hendrix, Madonna, and All Time Low. Around 3 people would work on each album cover, making an almost perfect recreation of their favorite album design. It was certainly messy work, I saw several people with chalk smeared on their hands and faces. Even though the drawings will…

On the field, a grotesque car crash was unveiled. The mock accident included four of the students at our school, the San Mateo Fire Department, the San Mateo Police Department, the Coroner’s Office and many other officials–all of whom acted like it was a…
