How to Dress Correctly for Winter

With the fall season quickly fading away, some people are unsure of how to appropriately dress for the everchanging weather. I would personally recommend going to your local thrift store or grandparents’ house and finding the best sweater possible, preferably with an animal or something that makes noise.

Goldfish for Good: Kids’ Food Basket in Partnership with Forest Hills

Although the rivalries between Eastern and teams like Catholic Central or East Grand Rapids are considerable, there is nothing that matches the spirit of competition between the Forest Hills Schools themselves. This Thursday, December 1st, Kids’ Food Basket will use this rivalry for cause at the Kids’ Food Basket basketball scrimmage between the Eastern and Northern teams.  The games will be held in the FHE main gym, with the Freshman and JV teams playing at…

When I was in 1st grade, the world’s population had hit seven billion for the first time. It didn’t seem all that important at the moment, as I could barely count to twenty at the time. Now, as I am a senior in high school, I have learned more about the world around me, especially how quickly the population is growing. The population on Earth has now reached eight billion. In approximately twelve years, our…

Tips and Tricks on How to Thrift

Searching through rows of donated clothes and finding a diamond in the rough is sort of like treasure hunting, but for clothes.

Trash for a Cause: The 2022 NHS Can Drive

Michigan is one of ten states in the United States with container deposit legislation (also known as “bottle bills”), allowing cans and bottles to be returned for ten cents back. Many customers faithfully return cans, doing their part to help the environment while happily collecting the extra five bucks. This November, NHS is using the law to its advantage, holding a pop can drive with all profits donated to Kids’ Food Basket.  Last weekend on…
