EYER MIDDLE SCHOOL Students bring Abe Lincoln to life

Wednesday, March 13, 2013 by JIM MARSH Special to The Press in School

Sixth graders from Pod 3 at Eyer Middle School brought history to life March 4 when they presented "A living museum of Chasing Lincoln's Killer."

Divided into teams of four, the students researched characters from the nonfiction account of the Lincoln assassination conspiracy by author James L. Swanson (Amazon). Each team presented a one-page research report, dressed as the character they represented and fashioned a visual aid to support their research.

HORNET HAPPENINGS Senioritis found at Emmaus High School

Wednesday, March 6, 2013 by LOGAN BECK Special to The Press in School

There is an epidemic at Emmaus High School, affecting most seniors, and even some juniors. Bronchitis? Perhaps. Strep throat? A firm possibility. However, this sickness cannot be cured with antibiotics or plenty of fluids.

Of course, I am referring to senioritis, a disease referring to the complete lack of motivation afflicting second semester seniors. Symptoms include sleeping through several alarms, constantly dressing down, dismissive attitude and more. The only known cure? Graduation.

This Valentine's Day, Emmaus High School students painted the school red.

The hallways were filled with flowers, chocolates, and other gifts from significant others and friends alike. Every period, carnations were delivered to students' classrooms, with heartfelt messages from their loved ones attached. There was a surplus of cookies, cupcakes, candy and conversation hearts all in the spirit of the most romantic day of the year.
