This past week, many of the clubs around HF have had their first meetings, or are starting soon. Joining clubs is a great way to get involved in school, and they are fun! Along with getting to meet new people that you might not always talk to, clubs allow you to discover something you are passionate about. There are clubs for everyone at our school.
3 tests in one day, sports practice until 9, family obligations, drama with friends; us teenagers have all been there before. The stress of high school, your social life, and everything going on in what seems like a short day, can easily take over and create a negative outcome on you. Teens suffer from it daily and it seems to continue to get worse as you get older and starts to have more responsibilities. Although it would be ideal to run away from the problems we have, and escape to a lovely beach in Costa Rica and watch the waves ripple all day, the best way to overcome stress is to face it.
Three...Two...One… The metal robot springs to life, knocks over a ball, and places a foam block into a holding container. In the next two and a half minutes the robot(and it’s driver) will attempt to fill the container completely full with the foam blocks.
