We need you!

By, Sarah JB

ATTENTION!!!! All 6th graders going into 7th grade and 7th graders going into 8th grade: the HSJH Newspaper Club needs great writers to write articles for the newspaper. In Newspaper Club we get to write about anything we desire (as long as it’s appropriate) and run around the school interviewing the teachers and students. It’s a great way to spend time with your friends and be creative!


Staff Dopplegangers….say what?!?

I love all animals and I have a dog 2 cats 5 fish and I’m not really sure how many frogs. I love the color blue especially turquoise. You can count on me to always be a happy camper, except when teachers give tons of homework.

All About Me – Kathrina Tate

I am the one that is always having writer’s block which is not fun considering I’m even having writers block on this too. I usually just sit at the computer thinking, writing, backspacing until my page is blank again. When I am not at school, babysitting, or doing all the mounds of homework all my teachers pile on top of me, I’m either watching movies, reading, biking with friends, drawing, or anything else that includes art. The art I prefer to do is design, practicing still life, and just plain drawing anything I want. I also have two younger brothers. Ethan, my older\younger brother, is 11. While Conrad, my baby brother, is only five. A very impressionable age I have figured out. He will do anything my brothers best friend tells him to do considering he is his favorite in the world, expect for my mom of course. Well, that’s all about me.

I have one brother and four sisters. I have two dogs named Neji and Titus. I live with my mom and her boyfriend. My favorite color is purple I enjoy watching anime and reading manga and books in my free time. I’m also really good at baking. I like listening to music. I lived in Nebraska until I was six and then moved to Indiana. I like writing. My stories usually contain extremely violent characters. That’s beside the point, though. I’m a procrastinator. I do not enjoy talking to most people. I do not really like talking about myself. Soooooooooo… Bye.

An UPDATE with 9.11

By, 9.11


This is an update with 9.11 (that’s me). On this first of many updates to come in the last two months of my seventh grade year, I will talk about my plans for my last articles until next year.

I have made my triumphant return from Musical Crew which was a mistake. Right now I am very excited that I am ending the seventh grade. It has been a great year, but I am ready for it to be over.

So, as far as future articles go, I am shifting my horizons to stories. You might have noticed my story Abnormal: The Birthday Party. That is my new series of stories. Abnormal is about weird things that happen all over the world. Things like possessions, weird powers or giant spiders.

For the record, I was watching a Twilight Zone marathon the night before I wrote that.

There is not much else on my plate right now. So for now that is a wrap on my first update

What brings you luck?


By, EZ

I asked teachers and students what bring them luck since St. Patrick’s Day is coming up. Here is what they said:

Ms. Adams: makes her own luck
Miss Moyer: hard work
Mr. Hodgin: his children
Miss Wright: Diet Coke and friendship bracelets
Ms. Vandor: my dog, Phoenix
Mya: tye-dye wristband
Trinity: chocolate
Me: bracelet from an old friend I once had
