The Dutch at the Well

Pella High is no stranger to excellence on the basketball court; this year was no exception.

Experiencing the Caucus

Having recently turned 18, I was super excited to caucus for the first time. I’m glad I got the opportunity before leaving for college because Iowa is a particularly important state when it comes to caucusing. Because Iowa is the first to caucus, the results tend to set the tone for the rest of the […]

Snow, Snow, and even more snow

I am fairly new to the freezing cold temperatures. I lived in Alabama for the majority of my life and let me tell you the coldest it got was MAYBE 45 degrees. I also did live in Kansas where I did have some exposure to the cold weather but nothing compared to the weather conditions […]
