On January 24, the Independent Student Lunch Committee (SLC) hosted a walkout to show the mass support for the Titan Lunch proposal. The walkout came after ACHS Executive Principal Peter Balas announced that the new extended lunch period would not be implemented for the second half of the 2022-2023 school year as planned. Theogony reported that Superintendent Dr. Melanie Kay-Wyatt and her Central Office Leadership Team blocked the plan the previous week.

School Torn Between Lunch Arrangements

September 27, 2022
The first day of school usually consists of a lot of stressful and confusing situations, however, most were more alarmed by the end of Lunch and Learn. Lunch and Learn was a huge part of our school last year. Lunch and Learn was a 74-minute universal lunch block that gave students and staff freedom to choose their activities. Although a primary benefit was giving time for students and teachers to meet, Lunch and Learn benefited students in a variety of other ways. This school year, Lunch and Learn is gone, and students are divided between 3 different lunch blocks. In its absence, teachers and students have strong opinions.

As the debate on Lunch and Learn’s potential return continues, many clubs begin to meet after school since meeting during school is no longer an option.

Many students support Lunch and Learn since it would give them more time in their schedule to stay involved with clubs.
