The Blair community is mourning the loss of Milton Roth, who recently passed away unexpectedly. Roth, who taught calculus at Blair for over 40 years, brought time, effort and genuine love to work every day, and the suddenness of his loss has been felt by many.
Magnet programs around the country have received criticism from students, parents and their communities for their lack of diversity. Blair's two accelerated programs, the Math, Science and Computer Science Magnet and the Communication Arts Program (CAP), are no exception.
Blair students are often decked in apparel from stores like Forever 21, H&M and American Apparel. However, some Blazers have decided to set themselves apart from the conventional fashion by making their clothes themselves.
Let's face it: English is the only class that's required for all four years of high school, so people may be reluctant to enroll in even more English electives. However, as Blazers finalize their schedules for the 2015-16 school year, it's important to understand the extent of English courses in our school.
As we grieve for Lowell's passing and celebrate his life, we would like to provide a forum for current or former Blazers, family members, friends, peers, teachers and all others to share memories and thoughts of Lowell. To contribute, please email your remembrances to email@example.com.
