Take&Bake: easing the stress of teacher’s lives one meal at a time

By Sarah Skordas

It was a crazy Thursday (as most Thursdays tend to go) and I was roaming around, pass in one hand, phone in the other, scoring the halls for an administrator on hall duty. Coming across Assistant Principal Mrs. Cooper, I asked if she had a few minutes to spare.

“Not really,” Cooper exclaimed, but she motioned for me to follow along and talk to her as we walked. I was working on a new story, one centered on Arundel’s culinary community and a project called Take&Bake. Making our way down F-hall stairs to the basement, Cooper was quick to express her enthusiasm on the topic, having picked up several Take&Bake meals herself. “The ziti… loved that,” she commented.

Study food reviews: The Brown Box Eatery

By Sarah Skordas


Friday again. February 23rd. The sun’s not shining, birds aren’t chirping. The sky can’t figure out if it’s a dull grey or a pale, pale blue, the color that normally means snow if it were 10 to 15 degrees cooler. But school’s out, there’s poetry to be written, and food to be eaten, so I can’t really complain about that day’s circumstances, especially not with the Brown Box Eatery just down the road.

What are the best concession foods at Arundel football games?

By Amber Hill

We started with 11 different foods sold on Friday nights at Arundel football games. The Pulse newsroom took a vote and agreed on the most popular foods sold at the concession stand. Going from drinks to foods, here are the 3 best bets:


At the last football game, there was a smoothie truck. Smoothies at football games came in 3rd place. The smoothie truck offers multiple flavors of creamy, colorful, tasty drinks. I recommend waiting in line to try one of these smoothies at the next game!


Kona Ice snow cones came 2nd place for the voting of best concessions at Arundel Football games. The Kona Ice offers 10 different flavors and 5 different sizes. The truck allows customers to mix and match flavors by themselves. If you haven’t tried Kona Ice before, Make sure to try it out at the next football game!


Fries were chosen to be the best concession at Arundel High! A lot of students who attend football games enjoy the fries the most. If you’re not sure what you want to eat at the next football game I suggest going for the fries.


A few students here at Arundel have expressed interest in the return of funnel cakes. We want funnel cakes to be sold at football games again. Let’s bring them back!

Arundel Adventures for Your Weekend: Kilgore Falls

By Zach Carver

In Adventures for Your Weekend, we’ll be giving readers local adventure spots and weekend ideas that offer more than your average weekend hangout. This week’s spot is Kilgore Falls.


The basics

Kilgore Falls, located within Falling Branch Park in Pylesville, is one of Maryland’s largest free-falling waterfalls. Leaving early in the morning is crucial to enjoying a day at the Falls, because it ensures you both a good spot and a full day. The drive is a little over an hour depending on traffic, but the drive is well worth it. More on transportation later.


The hike

Hiking the 1.3 mile loop breaks a short sweat.  You’ll notice a small stream beside you, with vast forest on both sides. Arriving at the falls, you’ll begin to hear flowing water. the falls drop water from an above stream into a semi-deep pool, surrounded with big rocks to explore and jump off. The water is always cool.

Getting there


Not the easiest drive in the world, but it’s all worth it once you hit the cool water. Whichever route you choose, you’ve got to make it around Baltimore. Early morning weekend traffic is usually light. Some routes may have tolls, so if there’s no EZPass setup in your car, bring some one dollar bills. If a parent or friend is driving, hook them up with some toll money. Consult GMaps for the best timing/route.

What to bring

  • Bathing suit and towels
  • Sturdy shoes
  • Sunscreen
  • Lightweight cooler or bag with snacks and drinks
