My name is Triston Green and I am a senior at Oswego High School. This is my second year being a part of the 42Fifty staff and I am so excited to see what is to come this school year! I am involved in many activities here at OHS, such as being a Panther Leader, a member of BSA, NEHS, and Band. Outside of school, I am a Crew Trainer at Oberweis, and I love to hang out with my family and friends.

2020 sparked a lot of talk on how schools will decide to reopen, and Oswego High School implemented a plan to do just that. Students were able to choose between either staying fully remote, or choosing the new hybrid learning method. We asked some students about which option they chose and why they made that decision. In a recent poll posted on the 42Fifty Instagram page, a question was posted asking if students were going to be going in-person for learning. Out of 61 total responses, 31 people said they are going back and 30 people said they are staying home.

As the president of this IADA, he can work towards improving the quality of athletic programs by making important decisions for all athletic departments in the state, working closely with other departments that manage high school level sports.

Are phones becoming too addicting?

In today’s society, many kids and teenagers are becoming more addicted to their phones as parents and others are giving them easier access to phones at a young age. When students are on their phones more, it causes them to lose focus and not have good attention spans. Phone usage is causing students to become more focused on their phones and their surrounding peers, rather than focusing on school and their future in education.
