Q: What grade are you in?
A: I am a senior at Emmaus High School.
Q: What is your favorite subject? Why?
A: My favorite subject has to be humanities. It's a double course that includes history, philosophy, literature, music and art. I like it because it's different. There is no set curriculum, which gives the teachers more flexibility. Also, it's a pretty high-caliber group of kids, so we have a lot of interesting discussions.

The Emmaus High School class of 1944 held its 69th reunion recently with a luncheon at Citizen's Fire Co. No. 2 in Emmaus.
The holidays are just around the corner. The nights are getting colder, and every neighborhood street seems to be filled with holiday lights, wreaths and reindeer. Department stores are blasting holiday classics such as "Baby It's Cold Outside, "Santa Baby" and a multitude of other winter songs.
Cars are being decorated with seasonal touches such as reindeer antlers, Rudolph noses and Christmas stickers.
Seasonal socks and sweaters are being worn like it's going out of style, especially with the "ugly Christmas sweater" tradition high school students seem to have adapted.
