The Red Ledger Staff
Editor Note: Ed-Emojis combine the thoughts of The Red Ledger with Leopard emojis to convey our quick thoughts on things around the school and in the world that make us laugh, cry, pout, smile, and more.
Excited: Summer’s approach
With the prospect of summer quickly approaching, we feel a heavy weight on our shoulders as finals and AP exams commence. It can be difficult to find the motivation to end the year strong. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and yes, there is an end to the school year (thank heavens).
Graduation parties, end of year projects, and the making of plans for next year’s school year are j...
Anxious: After school traffic
At the close of every school day, students anxiously sit in parking lot traffic. People disregard stop signs, cut each other off and create absolute mayhem. This can be frustrating and even dangerous.

This ruins the image of the people who work hard with their service dog and need them to physically or ...
Annoyed: June bugs
With June still half a month away, there’s no reason june bugs should be buzzing around street lamps and the courtyard tables already. There’s no reason for them to be buzzing around at all.
We see them flipped on their backs, not able to move an inch, serving no purpose aside from causing us to squint in discomfort after stepping on one. Junebugs are the ugly step-cousin to the rolly-polly,...
