Freedom of expression needs support in schools

March 14, 2017

Dear Harbinger Staff, The amendment of freedom of expression seems very simple until it is brought to school grounds; this is when it becomes unclear and controversial to all. I feel anyone should be able to wear what they...

Tired of morning traffic into school, needs a quick solution

January 9, 2017

Dear Editor of the Harbinger, There has been a lot of talk throughout the school about the traffic line to get into Algonquin Regional High School in the morning. Within the last few weeks more people have been late than usual....

New alarm system continues to irk students

December 6, 2016

Dear Editor, I recently read Cassidy Wang's article, “Meant to increase safety, new alarms frustrate”  in the newest 2016 edition of the Harbinger, and I strongly agree with what Cassidy said.  It was relatable when she ...

Allergies need to be taken seriously

December 2, 2016

Hello, It has come to my attention that at Algonquin, a certain issue is being marginalized. My sister has a severe allergy; she could die if exposed to it. 63 to 99 people die every year in the U.S. because of anaphylaxis....

Students need space to simultaneously work, eat

December 1, 2016

I enter the library, stomach gurgling, dying to go to lunch but need to finish my homework for later. I’m hoping that I can eat while I work. I’m unfortunately put down by the fact that there is no eating in the library. It’s...

New school security wastes resources

November 30, 2016

I believe that the new security systems at Algonquin are ridiculous and a huge waste of money. Although it’s important to be safe, Algonquin has taken way too much money from its students with fees, permits, and more. It’...

Cafeteria cookies are too high a price

November 28, 2016

You bite into that warm chocolate chip cookie that you have craved since the start of the day only to find that your pockets have been emptied from this purchase. Seventy-five cents may seem like a small cost, however with each da...

November 23, 2016

The moment you walk into class and place your binder on your desk, millions of germs are spread. A way to get rid of them? Any anti bacterial wash or sanitizer. Recently, our one way of getting rid of the gross bacteria that ...

Halloween costumes taken too far, offend others

November 21, 2016

Dear Editor, Halloween is a popular holiday among many people. Kids, teenagers, and even parents get in the mood for this spooky holiday. When it comes to dressing up for halloween, no one goes easy on it. But the real que...

Ad misinterprets what Harry’s is all about

February 9, 2016

I feel that in your January 2016 issue of the Harbinger, you misrepresented Harry’s Restaurant and Dairy Bar and what type of food they specialize in serving. When my eye caught the ad, I first noticed the line, “When you...

“Holidays” or just “Christmas”?

December 10, 2015

Dear Editor, In your December 2015 issue, there were two articles that were culturally closed off. These two articles were under the "Cozy up for the holidays" section. Both articles' titles neglect to mention any specific ho...

Are we Really Drowning Though?

December 2, 2015

I would consider “Drowning in alcohol” to be more than an overstatement to describe the students who attend Algonquin Regional High School. In the October 2015 Harbinger,  a published article written by Jen Fox made the stateme...
