The Hawkeye

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...

What’s up Hawks! Summer has come to an end, but I hope everyone had an amazing summer! There are so many exciting things coming up this year and I can’t wait to see everyone’s energy. One of my favorite things coming up is our Welcome Back Assembly on September 13.  Football games are also another...

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...

Students should speak up about spirit

Students should speak up about spirit

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...

Midterm exams only lead to unneeded stress

Midterm exams only lead to unneeded stress

By Nina Otebele, Outreach Manager

April 10, 2019

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 ...

Words like bullets

On Dec. 7, 2018, at Lake Brantley High School (LBHS) in Altamonte Spring, Florida., students were at lunch when the intercom announced a “Code Red” drill, simulating an active shooter lockdown. The only issue: there was no indication of it being a drill, sending students into a panicked frenzy. Acco...

Life as a visually impaired student

Life as a visually impaired student

By Ritika Khanal, Op-Ed Editor

March 27, 2019

Imagine one day, you wake up to find the world has been stripped of all color and shape. All you are left with is the light of day, the darkness of night and the outline of a person if they are standing right in front of you. If you can imagine this, then you are imagining how I see the world every d...

Coming back stronger than ever

By Matthew Hipolito, Copy Editor

March 27, 2019

Hi, Terrace. It’s been awhile. The hiatus we’ve been on has been one of the longest in The Hawkeye’s 34-volume history. During that time, news has been made and forgotten, and much of it is news we failed to cover. But rest assured we have not been doing nothing. Quite the contrary—we have ...

You can only go up from here

By Ben Eyman

March 27, 2019

I often carry my phone all around my house while I do everything. Recently, I was working on starting a load of laundry and during this particular time I was watching Christopher Nolan’s 2005 drama Batman Begins. It follows the upbringing of Bruce Wayne and is a pretty powerful movie. As I watched ...

To student journalists: The future is in your hands

By Annika Prom, Co-Editor-in-Chief

November 30, 2018

With as much crushing anguish and genuine happiness it brought to me, I managed to keep it a secret from my family for months leading up to an email I received during spring break. I opened my phone notifications and grazed over the subject line, too shocked to fully process that I would represent ...
