Need something to read, and more importantly, need something to watch? Check out our Spooktober movie review from the archives.

The kids don their white bed sheets. The pumpkins morph into Jack-o’-lanterns with the flick of a lighter. The candy bowl is on the porch, and the arbitrary “only take one” sign is ducktaped to the door. A creepy, maniacal aura fills the air. There are ghouls and mummies and goblins and a helluva lo...

Specialization in Failure

Last month, Groton students learned the negative effects that early specialization in athletics could have on their physical well-being.
