Happy holidays from Walden Pond

By Nolan DeGarlais, Editor-in-Chief

December 24, 2019

December has always appeared to me as a month of sharp dichotomies. Its most common image is that of holiday festivities and the familiar Christmas trees, delicately wrapped presents and peaceful blankets of snow surrounding houses warmed by picturesque hearths. However, when the weather gets cold, an...

Lighting the torch of justice

By Nolan DeGarlais, Editor-in-Chief

November 28, 2019

At this point, it has become a cliché to say that we live in an increasingly polarized society. By now, we all know the story that always seems to be on an endless loop in the media: whether it’s differences in generations, ethnicities or political opinions, America is being irreversibly torn apart. A...

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 ...

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...

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 ...

Turning change into opportunity

By Annika Prom, Co-Editor-in-Chief

September 29, 2018

And so comes the 2018-2019 school year. The MTHS community is seeing a handful of changes this school year, like an increase in base teacher pay, the introduction of new staff members, moving our football division to 2A and more. It’s hard for an incoming freshman to adjust to this whole new envir...

Taking off on a new flight

Hello, Mountlake Terrace! My name is Benjamin Eyman, and I am one of the co-Editors-in-Chief for the 2018-2019 school year. Along with my partner, Annika Prom, we have lots of plans for this upcoming school year. But, before we start next year, we have this school year to finish. We have had a lot happen...
