The ARC Arcade is one of the newest additions to downtown Astoria on 1084 Commercial St. The new arcade includes a variation of games. From retro Pac-Man and dozens of other quarter games to the newest consoles out there. Visitors can go from that old arcade feel, straight to next-gen gaming in a just a few steps.
New coaches have arrived at Astoria High to build their legacies in their individual sports. There are new coaches in girls soccer, cross country, and boys and girls basketball. Here, we had the chance to get to know them a little bit better, and can begin to see them as just more than coaches; but as a part of the AHS family.
Running is a road to self-awareness and reliance. By pushing the human body to extremes and learning the harsh reality of its physical and mental limitations, or just coasting quietly down a solitary path, watching the earth spin beneath pounding feet, at least for a moment everything seems right with the world.
The school year is ending and seniors are ready to escape the confines of the brick walls of Astoria High School. They will leave behind a legacy as the Class of 2014, and whether that is a good or bad one is for each individual to decide. Personally, I think there are a few things we, as the Class of 2015, can learn from the seniors, but they do leave behind some great memories.
As the end of the 2013-2014 school year comes close upon us, AHS has undergone elections for new student government positions for next year. As has been a reoccuring theme from past years, it is like pulling teeth to get students to run for leadership positions. This year there was only competition for the position of ASB Co-President. The other ASB positions had either one student running or none at all. Whatever the reason for the lack of motivation for running for a leadership role has to be investigated if there is going to be true student council achievement in the future.
When someone goes to a friend’s house they may expect a dog or a cat to greet them, right? Well, what if instead they were greeted by a sugar glider or a capybara? I know that I would definitely be surprised and, in some cases, very grossed out. How do people find the joy in owning these kinds of pets? Yes, some of them seem cute and cuddly, but others are just plain scary.
Homecoming is an annual fall tradition held all across the United States. It is an event where a school welcomes back its alumni. It usually lasts anywhere from one to two weeks. Throughout the week there are multiple events and celebrations. There is also a homecoming court, which consists of king and queen, and princesses and princes for each grade or group of students. The end of the celebration usually consists of a football game and then afterwards there is a dance or party. Homecoming has been celebrated and enjoyed since the 1800s.
