    Key Club boogies the night away at 2nd annual Dance Marathon

    Sophia Sun, Editor-in-Chief

    April 5, 2018

    Key Club’s second annual Dance Marathon on Feb 24 offered hot food catered by the hour, endless raffle prizes, an inflatable obstacle course, and performances by Brookfield Central bands and local dance troupes. Each of these aspects created a school dance atmosphere unlike any other Homecoming or Spring Fling that usually attracts high schoolers....

    Black Panther tops Marvel films

    Kevin Jacobson, Online Editor

    April 5, 2018

    Black Panther is the latest in the continuous stream of Marvel movies that have been breaking records. The film has one of the highest Rotten Tomato scores of all Marvel movies at 97% and hit the 21st highest grossing movie of all time after being in theaters for only a few weeks. Black Panther goes above and beyond any other Marvel movie that has been...

    "Black Panther" is the first Marvel production to have its opening weekend box office exceed its production cost. The film's main setting, Wakanda, gets its name from the Wakamba tribe of Kenya. Visually speaking, Wakanda is based off of two waterfalls: the Iguaza Falls in South America and the Victoria Falls in Africa.

    After 17 students and staff lost their lives in the devastating Parkland shooting, America’s youth united on Wednesday, March 14 in the National School Walkout. Brookfield Central and Brookfield East both participated in the walkout, with BC having a turnout of over 140 students. As soon as they heard about the Parkland school massacre, students...

    Kevin Jacobson (‘19), who spoke before the crowd of students at the walkout, reflected, “I was so worried leading up to the walkout, not knowing how many people were going to show up. Then when we had so many, I was so excited that I was able to share [my opinions].”

    BCHS Marching Band is challenging but rewarding

    Neha Ajjampore, Activities Editor

    December 20, 2017

    Football games are probably the most favored Brookfield Central High School events that students attend. Sports like football allow students to show their school pride, whether that be by scoring touchdowns out on the field or encouraging the team from the stands. The cheerleaders prompt the crowd’s hurrahs from the ground, and the Lancerettes fire...

    Sam Kult, Opinions Editor

    Last summer, a group of BCHS Spanish students traveled to Spain. While others may have been busy soaking up some sun on the beach, or lazily snoozing away, the group consisting of sophomores, juniors, and seniors departed from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport in June, and, after a connecting flight in Charlotte, landed in Madrid.
