So fresh and so clean

The dorms at Christ School are more than just temporary living arrangements. Between the months of August and May, they are home for boarding students. Recently, the dorms have been updated with all new furniture and paint. These improvements will keep students comfortable in their new home. Landon Archangelo, Class of 2015 of Young House, stated that “Christ School did a nice job with the new furniture in the common areas. His appreciation is shared among other members of the Greenie community. John Falkerson, Class of 2016 said that he was happy about the new commons room couches and is excited about the possibility of a new television in the dorm. While he wished that the dorms had air conditioning, he is pleased to see that Christ School is making improvements in order to help students feel at home. Coach Moroz, House Parent in Young House, said he thought students were “generally happy” with the dorms and that “Christ school does a good job with making sure that the students feel comfortable.”
I have personally observed students taking pride in where they live. They generally clean up after themselves, and the common areas have never looked better. I am very pleased that Christ School is listening to the needs of its students by taking actions to improve our living quarters.
Meet the Rap Godz

“Hey Coach Campbell, who’s the best rapper at Christ School?”
“Well that’s easy... Jeff Smilack of course!”
Formed in early 2014, the infamous Rap Godz, led by their front man Jeff Smilack and street manager Wade Davenport, have found international success in the harsh world of freestyle hip-hop. Although their lyrical genius is known in such countries as Germany, the Bahamas, and even South Korea, the group has struggled to find dominance on their home turf. Some say this is due to their informal, often random style, yet others say they can’t handle the top dog of the Christ School rap game, OG Mr. Uhler.
After an exclusive interview with OG Uhler, it became very clear that he did not feel threatened by the young rap group. With his Beastie Boys punk mindset, mixed with his Andre 3000 flow, OG Uhler has not lost a confrontation with Smilack yet. He has held onto his title as the Christ School freestyle King. Ulher felt comfortable enough in this position to even give a few words of wisdom to the young challengers, “ It’s too easy, come at me harder.”
Hungry for success, the Rap Godz are sure to take this to the next level. For these young bloods, the game is life. When asked for a response to OG Uhler’s challenge, Jeff Smilack had this to say, “OOOOHHHHHH it’s on Uhler!”
Buckle your seatbelts Christ School; this rivalry could get ugly.
