Students Dive into Diversity

Serena Young, Co-Editor/ Director of Advertising February 6, 2023

When DEI, Diversity Equity Inclusion, is mentioned, most people’s minds jump to skin color and gender. But when LHP sent out an email for high school students to apply to be student representatives for...

(Right) In order to
get good reviews,
once an item is
purchased, it is

important to pack-
age the item in

a pleasing way. I
wrap the item in
tissue paper, add
a, “Thank your for
your purchase!”
sticker, and use
a colorful poly
mailer. Once that
is complete, the
last stop is the
post office, and
then the item
is shipped off.

Don’t Love It, Just List It

Rebecca Reif, Editor in Chief February 3, 2023

Thrifting is a rather trendy hobby amongst many. However, the reselling side of this activity is often overlooked. In reality, there is just as much of a market for reselling thrifted items as there is...

(Above) The property of Shalom Orlando is also the site of The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Central Florida. The organization aims to combat anti-Semitism through history on prejudice and bigotry toward Jewish people. Kanye West has stated his support for Nick Fuentes, who has perpetuated a conspiracy theory denying the Holocaust, saying it was fabricated to advance Jewish interests. Denying an event that took the lives of countless Jewish people just perpetuates the hateful beliefs that first laid the groundwork for Hitler’s reign. Photo by Sarah Finfrock.

In the wake of anti-Semitic comments from American rapper Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, the silence is deafening. In public and on social media, I still see people listening to Ye’s music and promoting...

(Above) As I was apprehensive to start training in hip-hop, my studio and
team (shown above), helped me build up the courage to learn skills, as well
as perform on stage. The support that my studio shows while being onstage
is huge, with loud cheering and yelling. Also, other studios chime in with
this same encouragement, making dancing on stage and competing less nerve
wracking. After the first competition, I never doubted my ability in hip-hop,
and I continue to perform multiple pieces in that style. Photo courtesy of

Peer Pressure With Positive Outcomes

Rebecca Reif, Editor in Chief November 9, 2022

Girls Run the Show

Brady Conlin, Staff November 8, 2022

A Pro-Chef Rates Restaurant’s Authenticity

Serena Young, Director of Advertising November 7, 2022

When someone asks for Chinese takeout, it conjures up images of oily lo mein, sticky sweet orange chicken, and over-sauced broccoli, all slopped into a standard white takeout box from Panda Express. Orange...

were sent to

Kitchen is a chain

restaurant serv-
ing Asian-style

bowls and sushi.
They offer online
ordering so Seniors
can pre-order their
meals and have
more time to eat.
As Bento is farther
from school, there
is less time to wait
in line to order and
wait to be served,
so Seniors must
order ahead. All photos by Sarah Finfrock.

Cleo Richard-
son, grade 10, Aniston

Goldstein, grade 12, and
Alexandra Caballero, Class
of 2022, all share the
same passion for archery.
Alexandra shared how she
found her niche through
joining the archery
team: “I joined the team
during my Sophmore year,
and everyone was very
supportive. It was fun
to watch how I improved
throughout my time on
the team.” Alexandra
now serves as an active

mentor to the underclass-
men on the team, and

continues to push them to
do their best while still
learning about new ways

to improve their strate-
gies on a daily basis. In

fact, Cleo and Aniston have
learned a great deal from
Alexandra’s experience,
which have helped them in
fixing their mistakes and
forming new bonds in the
process. Photo by Arya
