Within the past few weeks, a new trend has surfaced among FHE students. I recently started making friendship bracelets with “WWMVD” engraved on stones.  The bracelets signify a relationship to a cult of some form glorifying FHE science teacher Michael Visser. The letters are an acronym for “What Would Mr. Visser do?”  These bracelets were originally created and worn by myself ironically, but they soon became a trend amongst the FHE crew team. After I…

How to Start an Essay

With AP Exams upon us, the focus of many Eastern students will be on their academics. Multiple AP tests feature writing sections that largely contribute to students’ total scores. For many—myself included—writing the bulk of an essay isn’t the biggest problem; what is, though, is actually getting started. In an effort to expedite our writing, it’s in our best interest to focus on how best to start writing. Thus, I’ve compiled some of Eastern’s teachers’…

It’s Summertime in the FHE Theater!

Even a sharp incline of COVID-19 cases, a multitude of brushes with contact tracing, and the return to hybrid scheduling could not stop the Forest Hills Eastern Theater Program: after all, the show must go on! Clear masks, delayed auditions, performing in Eastern’s auditorium, and prerecorded background vocals were some of the many precautions enforced to keep corona exposure to a minimum as the theater department proceeded with the yearly musical.

“Stick” with Kindness

If you take a stroll around Eastern and look very closely, you may or may not see small stars and smiley faces littering surfaces throughout the school. They’ve made their way into every hallway and can even be spotted everywhere, from lunchroom walls to bathroom stalls.
