French Club

Destiny Lopez

It’s well-known that you need a couple years of foreign language to graduate high school, and for most, French and Spanish aren’t the most fancied classes. However, some students enjoy their foreign language classes, and those students tend to join one of the two clubs associated with that language, the EHS French Club being one of them.

The EHS French Club is a high school club that embraces the French language and culture. It’s welcome to anyone who is in French 1 or French 2, has taken a French class, or simply has an admiration for the language.

French Club has done charity work in the community. Such work includes raking yards in the autumn, bell-ringing for the Salvation Army, and reading to younger kids at the library. Also, French Club has held various sales at school— most notably, the holiday-themed bake sales. Profits mainly are donated for students who are studying abroad and used to take French Club on field trips to places like Chicago, Appleton, and Quebec.

One event that French Club, along with Spanish Club, takes part in is the annual EHS World Language Fashion and Variety Show. Every year, both students in foreign language classes and students with foreign backgrounds show off their language skills paired with snazzy outfits from the school’s Clothes Closet. Along with the main extravaganza, students can show off their different talents for the whole student body to watch.

For more information on French Club, see Mrs. Wagner in Room C104. Meetings are after school on Thursdays.

Homecoming Interviews

Harry Bouche October 15th, 2018 With the season of fall starting to take over our temperature and trees, homecoming came and went. For some, it’s just a boring week of dress-up. For others, it’s one of the best parts of the school year. I took the time to interview several seniors on how they felt about their last homecoming and what the meaning of the celebration is. What was your favorite part of homecoming? (i.e. dressing up, the football game, the dance) R. Perrault : Easily the dress-up days. I really enjoy watching everyone dress up and seeing how creative we can be. E. Schoff : Probably the week going up to it with all the float building and activities building up to it. Give me the good, the bad, and the ugly. B. Wessel : I like how excited everybody is throughout homecoming. But like, stop the inappropriate dancing! Leave some room for Jesus. Anonymous : I liked being a senior, heh . I felt like I wasn’t included in some stuff because a lot of people let hom

Reading is Underrated

Harry Bouche October 17th, 2018 Hot take: Reading is Underrated Reading is an underutilized medium of entertainment, especially in this day and age. Beowulf , the oldest story ever written in English, can still be read and experienced today at its full capacity. If we created a tool that lets us share ideas throughout our existence, why is its medium of entertainment falling out of style? Now, take a look at your phone in your hand. Will that YouTube video you just watched—yeah, that one about the funniest vines of all time—matter to you in the next twenty-four hours? Possible, but unlikely. Epics, stories, poems, even comics, it doesn’t really matter what is being read. Reading can conform to whatever form required, and English is a perfect language for it. If languages were students, English is the scummy kid who steals other languages’ lunch money. Ironically, we benefit from this by having the ability to be more expressive, diverse, and extraordinary with our words and

Post-Secondary Options

Donald Carlson October 11th, 2018 College, Trades and Other Options After High School Ever since you were a little kid, you have probably been asked by adults, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Your answers have probably changed since you were nine years old, to where you are now, and they will probably change by the time you graduate. In this article, I hope to help those who are undecided on what they want to pursue as a career field and to provide information on all the options you have after high school. College Some of the main reasons to go to college are an increased average income over time compared to non-degree holding peers, the prestige of having a degree, higher employment rates, and the overall university experience. These points are enticing on paper, but when you start looking further, college may not be the option for you. College is expensive, with the average graduate being $30,100 in debt after graduation. Most people don’t pay off their loans until ten
