Dogs of FHE

Pets are an essential part of most people’s lives. Dogs in particular tend to be the most popular pet because of their devotion to their owners and their loveable spirit. Many students of Eastern have dogs of their own, each having their own distinct personality and quirks.  Sophomore Audry Zawaki has a dog named Charlie. Charlie is a small dog that has black and white splotches. They aren’t sure what her breed is though. Charlie…

The driver’s test. Every aspiring new driver’s worst nightmare. I’m here to give pointers to help new drivers pass the driver’s test on their first try.

The Robots are Taking Over

Forest Hills Eastern is all charged up for the next robotics season! This year, teams are challenged to stack traffic cones and cubes on poles and pedestals across the game field. Team co-captain Ben Gates (‘23) says that in contrast to previous years, “The game pieces aren’t symmetrical or easy to manipulate, making this year’s game particularly hard.” Furthermore, the team has to reevaluate its safety, because this year’s robot has a 5-foot long arm.…

Hawk Teams: White Elephant Edition

Last week the white elephant tradition returned to Hawk Teams! At a white elephant gift exchange, everyone brings a gift and puts it in the middle of the table. The presents don’t need to be expensive, they can be something from your house that you don’t want anymore.

Eastern Hawks’ Hot Takes

We all have hot takes – those opinions that may be viewed as odd, but that we feel very strongly about. While Eastern students have some similarities (ie. they all go to the same school), there are still bound to be differences in opinion. I went on a mission to see what the students of Eastern consider their unpopular hot takes, and just how hot those takes actually are. “I hate bell peppers! They’re the…

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. I have seen some people wearing shorts to school, and they need to be reminded that just because the sun is out does not mean it is…
