Headlines & Features
Former SHS student Aidan Mahoney (class of 2018) had his sonnet/poem published in the book “Compass: Upon Arrival” and the published copy hit shelves last month. His sonnet, written his senior year in Allison Ferrier’s AP English Literature class, is titled “Seek” and questions lack of compassion; his closing sestet suggests the need to accept one another with grace. It’s a must read! Aidan is a sophomore at Cornell University.
The last week of school in 2019 was Holiday Spirit Week at Somers High School. Kicking off with Pajama Day, Student Council members made hot chocolate to give to students who wrote a thank you note to an American soldier. To add some fun, the Elf on the Shelf and the Mensch on the Bench were hidden in non-classroom spaces throughout the day. Students turned them in for a candy cane. Don't worry these were non-magical versions, so students can touch them!
Members of the Somers High School Photo Club held a photography exhibition in the Student Life Center. Students took photos based on the theme of Earth, Wind and Fire. These photos displayed the wonderful effects of nature and helped raise money for the club for equipment and future field trips.
