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.

STUDENT OF THE WEEK Samantha Schwartz

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by LORETTA FENSTERMACHER Special to The Press in School

Q: What grade are you in?

A: I am in 12th grade.

Q: What is your favorite subject? Why?

A: My favorite subject is English, because I have always had a passion for writing and analyzing pieces of literature. As I have moved along to higher-level courses, now currently enrolled in AP 12th grade English, the writing and analyzing has become increasingly more challenging. I embrace the college level assignments given to me in this course with an open mind and a will to succeed in where my passion lies.

Q: Have you received any special rewards or recognition?

Students jump to benefit the American Heart Association

Jump for your Heart, a program suggested by Principal Dr. Anthony Moyer a few years ago to benefit the students' health and the American Heart Association, was in full swing at Willow Lane Elementary School in Macungie Feb. 22.

Not all students participated in fundraising but they all participated in jumping. Every student received a "Jump Rope for Heart" sticker from the American Heart Association for their participation. According to the AHA website, "It takes a heart to be a hero!"

The program ran all day with each grade jumping an average of 30 minutes.
