The printers in our school have issues. They go from functioning perfectly to spewing out many papers with gibberish. The printers start to have problems when they are overwhelmed with many large documents in a short period of time. Once this happens, the printers seem to lock up and not respond to any more commands. Clicking “print” repeatedly on the same document doesn’t help the situation at all. Eventually, the printers will print everything that was sent to them, so every time we click “print” on a document means another copy.
Another issue that has recently been discovered is that Google Drive on some computers is duplicating documents. Google Drive is not just duplicating a few, extra copies, it is duplicating up to thousands of the same document. This issue is causing Google Drive on some computers to have extremely long load times. Some classes do not require students to use their Google Drive; however, there are classes that it is mandatory in. Comp IV uses Google Drive constantly. Students type their papers on Google Docs, and then they have to enter their Google Drive to share their papers with Mrs. Stuckemeyer so she can grade the papers.
Although there are issues with the school’s printers and Google Drive on some computers, these issues can be avoided. When the printers seem to not be working properly, instead of pressing “print” repeatedly, just be patient and wait for the printer to process through all the documents. Also, when we are done using documents on our computers, we should delete those documents so our Google Drives won’t be cluttered.

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. The story of Black History Month begins back in 1915 after the 13th Amendment abolished slavery in the United States.
In September 1915, Harvard-trained historian Carter G. Woodson and the prominent minister Jesse E. Moorland founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History or the ASNLH for short. This organization was dedicated to researching and promoting the achievements by black African Americans and other people of African descent.
The organization is now known as the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, (ASALH), the group sponsored a national Negro History week in 1926, choosing the second week of February to coincide with the birthdays of President Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. This event inspired schools and communities nationwide to organize local celebrations, establish history clubs and host performances and lectures.
President Gerald Ford officially recognized Black History Month in 1976, calling upon the public to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.”
Since 1976, every American president has designated February as Black History Month and endorsed a specific theme.
The Black History Month 2018 theme is “African Americans in Times of War,” marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I and honors the roles that black Americans have played in warfare, from the American Revolution to the present day.
