Students walk to go get covid testing… and then, they walk past… THE GUM TREE! This tree is exactly what it sounds like, it is an old tree with gum stuck onto it, it can be found here, at this school… but what exactly is the meaning of this? Who knows, maybe it could rip its own roots out of the ground, learn to run around, and attack students! In this article, Thomas Star King students will give their opinions on it.

By Brandon Espinal

Tribune Staff Writer

What is the largest turkey in history? The largest turkey’s name is Tyson. He weighed 86 pounds although an average sized turkey weighs in at about 20 to 30 pounds now isn’t that crazy. Tyson lived in 1989 in Peterborough, United Kingdom. Tyson’s owner Philip Cook made Tyson that size and weight for the biggest turkey contest. Before Philip bought Tyson he belonged to a company in the UK called,”Leacroft Turkeys.” Tyson must have eaten a ton of food to get that size. The contest also gave a prize of 4,400 dollars or in … Read the rest “The Biggest Turkey Recorded in History”

     We can all admit that these past two years have been pretty crazy. COVID 19, global lockdown, and online school. Even though 2020-2021 had its ups and downs, those years taught us to be more grateful than ever. Today, take your time to think about everything that you’re grateful for. 

Firstly, we should all be grateful for trees. Without them, humans wouldn’t be alive! Their leaves and branches give off oxygen that allows us to breathe. Their thick trunks and branches supply animals with a perfect place to live, and create … Read the rest “Everything to be Great-Fall for This Season”

It’s Thanksgiving, the day where we give thanks and gratitude. The day we eat foods like mashed potatoes, gravy, biscuits, and pizza (if you like), but of course the classic turkey! Usually we buy our food and cook at home but I have to warn you to freeze. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING! The prices are going up rapidly. And there are lots of small companies that can give you the same quality turkey for a lower price. And this is why. 

According to NPR, because of these rising prices, a regular … Read the rest “BUY NOTHING!”

            Toilets, soap… and post-it notes? Have you ever seen a postcard in the girl’s bathroom? Well, at Thomas Star King the girl’s bathroom on the hill has some great, albeit temporary, reading material.
