The Conrad High School cafeteria bustles with the chatter of students and coaches.  Its classrooms echo with the cacophony of pencil marks and erases as well as an incessant array of clicks and thuds from the nervous test-takers.

Leininger, S.J.  peruses the densely filled pages of stamps and price values, identifying a certain group, or set, from his pile of unorganized stamps.After carefully soaking the set in water, he lays them face down on a newspaper, preserving the illustrations while removing them from the envelope they...

One by one, each sophomore entered the...
The bell rings, and another one of Mr. Profitt's World History AP (WHAP) classes begins. Some students take out their notebooks, apathetically scribbling down words and broad ideas. However, some students in the back corner seem to be paying more attention than others. Taking detailed notes, the students furiously scribble in their journal, taking note of all Mr. Profitt...
