Filed under Editorials, Opinions

A few years ago, the District noticed that responsible money management was a key skill to be mastered by students so that they could responsibly and competitively function in our complicated global economy. Now, thanks to Personal Finance, every student who graduates from North has the skills they need to properly manage their finances after high sc...

NORTH STAR TAKE: Ads stifle drive to vote

November 10, 2010

Filed under Editorials

It’s 2010, and just last week, the country elected Congress. This year, like every year really, the gloves of the candidates came off. The insults flew left and right. The commercial spots between moments of Glee were filled with left and right slighted promotions and attack ads from one candidate to the other. The election seemed less and less appe...

NORTH STAR TAKE: Hazing, Not a viable option

September 29, 2010

Filed under Editorials

It always starts with good intentions. However juvenile, it may help to build relationships within the team. But it isn’t the only way. Many clubs around FHN have a form of initiation that helps build a bond among players, a form of initiation that helps create a line of respect- dressing new recruits up in obnoxious costumes or shaving their ...

NORTH STAR TAKE: Forms hassle rather than help

September 8, 2010

Filed under Editorials

After finding themselves $40,000 behind in fine collections last year, the administration needed to find a way to recuperate the lost money. To remedy this, they presented the school population with forms that were necessary in order for students to buy tickets to dances. They had harsh effects on the dances in the process and the student body in the...

Cleanse

September 8, 2010

Filed under Editorials

Every single time I turn on the T.V. there are always companies promoting their acne cleaners, talking about how their product can clear your skin in two weeks. I personally think that in most of these cases, all that those products do is cause your skin to break out even more. Recently however, my mom came home with one of these supposedly amazing...

Give respect, not just your order

September 8, 2010

In the line for the drive-thru, a million cars in front of me. The minutes tick away and my stomach growls more and more ferociously as I wait. Finally, after what seems like ages, I pull up to the window, and receive my bag. When the worker wishes me a good day, I can’t help but offer a less than respectful, “Yeah, whatever.” We have all been...

Wear

Recently I discovered Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nail polish. This polish stays on for a long amount of time with only one coat. It also has a shine to it that looks as though you just came from the salon. On top of all of this, it can be found at Walgreens for only $2.50. Above all, my favorite thing about the polish is the wide array of colors that...

Students should act their age, not their shoe size

I was at the football game a few weeks ago with a few of my friends- talking, hanging out, just having a good time. As the night went on there were several instances where people were tormenting other people at the game. When I saw all those things happen around me, I felt hurt and disappointed that people in high school were still acting immature. While...

Logan Ponche Attention all gentlemen of Francis Howell North! This is an official warning in regards to the exponential growth of colored bands that are currently invading our fine institution.

Participating, showing spirit makes high school more memorable

August 16, 2010

Every year, the fine people of Student Council put together three weeks filled with wacky-anything days, class color days, and days when teachers and students switch something around. But every year, less and less students choose to partake in these events. Class color days do get support from a group of 12 girls who met the night before and glittered...
