More student input might increase spirit

By Rachel Davis, Hawkeye Staff

Every day I walk into school at 6:45 in the morning, desperate to get into my first period so the day can begin. Despite my drowsy mood, littered on the walls are colored posters I can’t ignore. They encourage school spirit and participation in spirit days, one of the most widely used methods to b...

Fostering Terrace community

By Nolan DeGarlais, Editor-in-Chief

October 30, 2019

October has arrived yet again, bringing with it the familiar dreary weather and increasing pace of the school year. As assignments begin to pile up, the sun sets ever earlier and temperatures grow more chill, it is easy to become lost in the rat race and ultimately discouraged. However, in light of this, our life here at ...

Hey, are those eyeballs real?

Hey, are those eyeballs real?

By Ritika Khanal, Op-Ed Editor

October 24, 2019

It all began in seventh grade, walking through the doors of Brier Terrace Middle School on that somewhat cloudy day. I was a nervous wreck, wondering how I was going to make it through an entire school year at a school where no one knew me and where I knew no one.  Of course, the thing I failed to understand ...

Terrace to celebrate Diamond jubilee

By Jonathan Kwong, Yearbook Editor and General Manager

September 12, 2019

Each year, the typical letter from the editor for the back-to-school edition of the Hawkeye discusses change.  However, this year is a time to reflect on how we’ve changed. This is the 60th anniversary of MTHS. As we embark on the journey of our 2019-2020 school year, we associate the 2020 yea...

New year, new expression

By Nolan DeGarlais, Editor-in-Chief

September 12, 2019

With each new school year comes a predictable cycle, at least for those of us who are returning to the now familiar high school routine. For at least a quarter of MTHS students, though, the new school year marks a time of seemingly immense change. The move into high school can seem intimidating and exhil...

On Sunday, July 28, I woke up to headlines of a shooting at a garlic festival in California that had killed three people and injured at least 12 more. After the Garlic festival shooting, I was on edge, fearing that a similar situation would occur elsewhere. Sure enough, less than a week later, I unloc...

Like many schools, every few months MTHS has a week dedicated to showing school spirit. Spirit weeks are a great way to have students show school spirit, whether it’s to hype kids up for homecoming or get everyone ready for the next spirit assembly. For a while now, I have wondered who plans spiri...

November is a glorious month to enjoy family, turkeys, the leaves changing color; the spring season arrives in April along with, of course, midterm exams. In case you didn’t know, a midterm exam is a test given towards the end of the quarter or middle of the semester. Personally, I have a mixed opini...

Immigration: Is It really a big deal?

Immigration: Is It really a big deal?

By Nina Otebele, Outreach Manager

April 10, 2019

Our society tends to portray immigration in a negative light. We hear all the time on the news and from our own president about how dangerous undocumented immigrants are and how we need to build a wall to keep them out. The fact that all this is happening is ridiculous. There isn’t a reason to fear ...
