LESSONS FROM ALUMNI 2014 graduates share wisdom from past experiences with incoming freshmen, new students, and returning FHN students FRESHMEN- BE A SPONGE BY BRITTANY STECK

Within the next four years, you are going to have a plethora of opportunities. There are a multitude of clubs to join, classes to take, and people to meet. And I urge you to fill your plate to the brim. My elementary band teacher had a famous catchphrase. At the beginning of each class, he would say, “be a sponge.” At first, this phrase seemed silly. Later, I understood. Mr. Johnson wanted us to soak up as much as we could. He wanted us to take in as much knowledge as possible. He wanted us to focus on listening and learning, to let things really sink in. That’s what I urge the class of 2018 to do. Be a sponge. Soak up as much information as you can. Your teachers are a wishing well of information; use them to discover things about topics that interest you, whether it’s science, history, or music. Join a few clubs that interest you. Soak up the learning that comes from those clubs. Make memories.

FRESHMEN- DON’T BE AFRAID TO GET INVOLVED BY ZAC FLETCHER

Freshmen. You are the infants of the school all over again and the reputation that past ninth graders have left for you is less than great. They have been loud, they have been obnoxious, they have been desperately reaching for that spotlight. High school is a game. Games take practice. No one has everything figured out by the age of 14, and no one expects you to have it figured out either. My advice to you: put yourself out there, sit back, and enjoy yourself. Join a club or two, or three or four. Try out for the sports teams. Get involved and get connected with the other people here at Howell North. My one regret in high school was not getting involved in clubs earlier. I waited until my senior year to get involved and missed out on three years of great times. I met some of my best friends through clubs like DECA and FCA and I suggest all 9th graders do the same.

SOPHOMORES- YOU’RE NOT THE NEWBIES ANYMORE BY HANNAH ROSEN

Congratulations! You made it past your first year of high school! You are no longer categorized as an obnoxious, annoying, “freshmeat” and you should begin acting as such. My biggest advice: grow up and don’t slack off. Now that you have had a taste of high school, it’s no longer acceptable to be the immature newbie that you probably once were. Another piece of advice; live life. High school is a time to remember. As much as you should focus on school, remember to also focus on a social life. It is your life, have fun, try not to stress. Make friends, learn about yourself, grow, join clubs, do activities that you want to do, and don’t get caught up in the stupid high school drama. Most likely, once you leave you will not see anyone here, so don’t be ashamed to be yourself and do things that you want to do. High school doesn’t last forever, so make the most out of it. The road to independence is right around the corner. 09 FHNTODAY.COM 08.06.14

JUNIORS- SET A GOOD EXAMPLE BY MELISSA LUKES

Juniors, you’re almost there. You are now halfway done with your high school career, and this year will fly by. It won’t always be easy, but remember to have fun. Grades and classes count now more than ever, and college is right around the corner, so don’t be afraid to start looking into these things early. There will be a lot of options for you to choose from, but don’t feel overwhelmed; it’s not as hard as it seems. As upperclassmen, you now hold the responsibility to represent your school in a bigger way. May it be showing spirit on assembly days, or stepping up to do extracurricular activities that will improve the community, you also have to show the incoming freshmen that high school is a big deal, and something to be taken seriously. Don’t be afraid to be the person that respects your classmates, teachers, and school environment. Be the student that other students can look up to. That’s what upperclassmen are for. So set a good example, class of 2016. Be proud of who you are, be the best you can be, because no one is better at being you than you.

SENIORS- MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR LAST YEAR BY MADDIE HIATT

It’s finally here. Your senior year is starting and it’s about to fly by. My advice to you is simple: enjoy your time here and don’t let others get you down. Your time in high school is limited. You are going to graduate in June and while it may seem far away now, it’s going to sneak up on you. Participate in everything. And I mean everything. Spirit days, powderpuff, Mock Rock, and Prom. Don’t regret not doing things your senior year. Apply for college early. Pick a school then don’t stress about it because everything will fall into place like it’s supposed to. Spend your last year at FHN enjoying being with your friends and keep working hard. Don’t let your peers get to you. I learned that there are always going to be people that want to bring you down. Be kind to others but in a few months all of these kids are just going be kids you went to high school with. Do what makes you happy.

EVERYONE- CHERISH THE MOMENT BY JESSICA OLSEN

Whether you’ve just started your freshman year, or you’re at the end of the road as a senior, there is an inevitable truth for all of us-- Our lives have not just begun, nor have they ended. High school is just a piece on our individual paths. When I speak to adults, they look back at high school like it’s worth nothing more than a shrug of the shoulder. However, that doesn’t make high school any less important right now. This is right now, this is the present, and we’ve always been told to cherish it. Don’t rush these years; they’re valuable. This is the only time you can worry about little things. In high school, you’re allowed to feel more like an adult with driving, dating and having a part time job, yet still come home to a prepared dinner. My biggest piece of advice is to take advantage of all the opportunities that are offered to you during your high school years. Don’t fall in love with the idea of becoming an adult, or with the possible future. Fall in love with just being alive.

TIPS TO KEEP YOU OUT OF STICKY SITUATIONS As the new school year begins, there are quite a few things to keep in mind as you roam through North’s halls. Whether you’re an incoming freshman or a senior, here are a few tips to help you out

“Don’t procrastinate because it gives you unwanted stress that you can avoid.” - Kasey Wagner, 11

Try to talk to and get to know as many people as possible. You’re going to be around a lot of new people and the more friends you have, the less awkward the class will be. If you’re new to North, it’s likely that you’re not the only one.

“Manage your time really well or you’ll regret it down the road” - Landon Porter, 11

If you’re ever done with your classwork early or you’re just hanging out before school, pop into the Learning Commons to pass the time. You can check out books, get on a computer to work on an assignment, or sit at the tables and work on homework.

The Commons are one of the loudest places to be at North. If you’re new here, don’t be overwhelmed by all the students. Likely, there are students just like you who are looking for a place to sit.

PAGE BY PRISCILLA JOEL

Sketch out a good study plan that works around your schedule.

Since the Butterfly Hallway is located in the middle of the school, it is usually pretty crowded during passing periods. If you want to get to class on time, your safest option would be to avoid this hallway.

If you have questions, don’t be afraid to ask. If you’re confused about something, it’s likely that other people are too.

This summer, there were a few changes to the school including new teachers, new roofing, and Normandy students no longer returning to the FHSD.

Over summer, the roofs on the top and middle floors were replaced. There are no longer skylights on the top floor but there still are skylights on the middle floor.

FHSD decided that they would not be accepting transfer students from the Normandy School District this year. The decision was made after the Normandy district was dissolved and reopened under a new name. The new district is not considered unaccredited, meaning the transfer law does not apply. “I think with any kids that come to our school we really grow attached to them and when any students leave and transfer schools we end up missing them because our staff is really good with developing relationships with their students,” Head Principal Andy Downs said.

DEATH BY STAIRWELL

THE LOWER LEVEL

These stairs lead you straight into the mess of the butterfly hallway.

TO THE BUSES

At the end of the day, these stairs fill up in the rush to get home. If you plan on using these stairs, make sure you are going with the flow of the crowd.

DECA COOKIE SALES

Monday mornings are a little sweeter with fresh-baked Otis Spunkemeyer cookies, which DECA sells. For just $1, indulge with two gooey chocolate chip cookies.

CULTURED CORRIDOR This hallway is always bursting with energetic people dancing, singing or practicing lines. Take a stroll to add some theatrics to your day.

STAIRCASE O’DEATH

GET FIT OR GET PUMPED

The Big Gym is the place where the pep assemblies happen. Take a gym class or practice or show your spirit at a pep assembly.

Avoid these stairs throughout the day if timeliness is a priority for you. These stairs lead straight into the Butterfly Hallway and fill up quickly.

Although the sign says “Entering the Happy Zone,” don’t let that distract you from this frigid math war zone. Weapon of choice? A jacket and your calculator.

Last year, you could get a handful of skittles from these machines for twenty-five cents. All the profits went to Mu Alpha Theta. They may or may not be back again this year.

THE UPPER LEVEL


SNACK TABLE

THE MAIN LEVEL HIDDEN PLACES Don’t let the room numbers confuse you, the new science hallway is situated between the art hallway and the Commons.

ART HALLWAY Add a little culture to your day by passing through this hallway. Check out some amazing sculptures or paintings from the starving artists of FHN.

FIND YOUR WAY This is the place to be if you need any information about the A+ Program or classes, or if you just need to talk to someone. Don’t be afraid of the guidance counselors; they don’t bite.

SENIOR COURTYARD This is just another perk of being a senior. When it’s warm, seniors are able to enjoy their lunch around the outdoor tables.

Although crowded during lunches, this hallway is the place to get your snack on. The snack table provides a variety of sweets and chips to satisfy any craving but closes when lunch ends. The money raised from the snack table goes to the All-Knighter fund.

LEARNING COMMONS

THE COMMONS

In the center of the school, the Commons is the place to grab some lunch and socialize with your friends. On Wednesday afternoons, this is where people wait for activities until 2:20.

CLUBBIN IN COM 1

TIP: “

Experience mbering is key to reme sses where your cla around are and getting ns help school. The sig letely but don’t comp rely on them.” ko, 12 -Valerie Udoven

Many clubs hold their meetings in this large classroom, located in the Commons. In the past, clubs such as Speech and Debate and National Honor Society have met here.

BUTTERFLY HALLWAY

During passing period, avoid this hallway at all costs. Traffic turns into a stand still making it nearly impossible to get to classes on time.

LEARNING COMMONS

Formerly known as the library, this quiet, techfriendly environment is great for studying. With plenty of books and computers, the Learning Commons has all of the resources needed to be a successful student.
