Dunbar Baseball off to a Great Start

April 20, 2018

Dunbar's baseball team is out to their best start in school history with a 10-1 record. Last year they ended the season with a 16-15 record.

But the success hasn't all been on the offensive end, the team pitching has been excellent with...

Letter to the Editor: My Teachers Matter

Letter to the Editor: My Teachers Matter

April 19, 2018

As a 9th grader, I remember being nervous about the difficulty of my pre-calculus class. I had never learned anything remotely close to calculus prior to joining high school, and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to transition easily from middle school math into such a difficult class.

Learning Something New…Again

Learning Something New…Again

April 8, 2018

Motivation to learn, for me at least, tends to come in periodic bursts. Something has to happen to kick it off and usually, it comes as a class requirement, like a vocabulary test (that is coming soon and I neglected to study for, so now I have to cram). In reality, though, I’m a huge nerd, so I found studying on Quizlet to actually be pretty fun once I got the hang of the words. I now try to ...

Dunbar Students Support KY Teachers

April 2, 2018

My English teachers —who inspired me to pursue a career with words, and showed me that reading can be more than a fun hobby — all have a special place in my heart, but every one of my teachers is responsible for making me into the person I am today. In one of my most recent English classes, we had a discussion about whether morality is instinctual or taught. This discussion caused me to reflect...
