Until then, I will be sharing three of the best hacks for school.
Hack #1- Do you struggle making interesting Google slide presentations? Do you always feel like they look so boring? Well I have the perfect hack for you! The Slides Carnival website is free and has so many different formats for Google slides. It will spice up your slides and fit into any topic you need to write about. Check it out here:
Hack #2- Do you have trouble finding your information in your notebook? Are there so many things in it that you cannot possibly find the section you're looking for? Then you should leave a few pages in the front and make a table of contents! This is perfect for when you have an exam and need to study. It will be so much easier to find what you need and study each section.
Hack #3- Does reading a Wikipedia article sometimes feel overwhelming for you? Then you should try this hack. When you go to any Wikipedia page, the web url usually says en.wikipedia To make it simpler, just change the .en to the word simple. It should end up being simple.wikipedia.
For example, this Taylor Swift page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taylor_Swift) can transition to a much simpler version: https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taylor_Swift. This handy trick makes Wikipedia pages 100 times easier to understand and takes the hassle out of reading!
That's all for this article! Don't forget to send in any problems or issues you need advice on!
Elizabethtown Area High School’s Homecoming came back in full force this year, despite recent Covid-related setbacks. Many students participated in the spirit days leading up to the Homecoming festivities. These spirit days included Country vs. Country Club day, Decades day, and Blue and White day. The homecoming court excelled with their spirit days, showing up every day with a new costume. At the Friday night football game, seniors Allison Evans and Vincent Checco were crowned homecoming king and queen after being selected by their peers. Many students gathered at Masonic Villages and Elizabethtown College for pictures before homecoming. The festivities were long awaited after last year’s lack of events due to the pandemic. The night was filled with dancing, games, pictures, and music led by DJ Patrick Boyer. While the Homecoming dance wasn't the same as it was pre-Covid, Student Council's outdoor version offered many options not typically available, like cornhole and KanJam. Homecoming on the turf may not have been students' first choice, but the event went smoothly, and students left smiling.

In spite of the fact that we’re living in the age of hyperfast information, we seem to constantly be misinformed. Time and time again, large groups of people have been and will continue to be fooled by news and media. Misinformation leads us to make irrational decisions, which lead to often serious consequences. It’s an issue that affects everyone, no matter who or what they believe in.

Emily Klonicki, Elizabethtown High School class of 2014, has a job title
that, in her own words, is “a bit eccentric”: Planetary Protection Engineer
at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. “Most people assume I stop
asteroids from hitting the planet, but that is not the case,” says Klonicki.
Rather, Planetary Protection is a multifaceted discipline concerned
with preventing forward and backward contamination.

So it’s 2020, and it’s no secret that relationships today are completely different
compared to relationships a few generations ago. The world of dating has evolved
and it’s important to take note of the many rules and recommended suggestions
relating to modern-day dating. So to provide some insight on the topic, as someone
who personally hasn’t dated yet, I’ve decided to compile a list of what stands
out to me as the biggest do’s and don’ts when it comes to dating based on
what broken-up people have told me about their failed relationships.

Unlike most years, the start of this new year also heralds the start of a new decade: the 20s. In the 1900s, the 20s were marked by the rise of the economy, jazz, and fashion. So what is so significant about the 20s of the 2000s? Well, for this generation’s current high schoolers, the 20s signify the beginning of the end.
