The Streak

The Class of 2020’s Senior Prom, “A Prom for the Ages,” has been rescheduled to at least July 16. The Warren Hills Regional School District administration has expressed its commitment to still hold the prom, whose original date in late May was canceled due to an ongoing emergency school closure. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, this new July 16 date has provided a glimmer of hope for the 2019-2020 school year to culminate somewhat normally. “Having prom on my birthday should be a cool wrap-up to the school year,” senior Aidan McHenry said. “We’ll at least have one event to remember the end of our senior year.”

More than a dozen poets and poetry lovers participated online May 5 in the first Virtual Poetry Slam hosted by Warren Hills Regional High School’s Horizons Program. Every year, the Poetry Slam is held in the high school’s Elizabeth Ames Library in May and is a chance for students and staff to share poetry with one another. Since school was closed due to COVID-19, Horizons Director and Librarian Margaret Devine hosted the Poetry Slam virtually. Students and staff video recorded themselves reading poems and sent them to Devine, who then put them together in a video and shared it with the school. “I’m so glad that so many came together during this difficult time to rise above what we are all facing, and to take time to celebrate the spoken and written words of poetry,” Devine said. “Writing, like any art form, can help anyone process and make meaning of difficult times. I am glad to have provided a space for our students and staff to use their writing and voices to move forward.”  (Photo collage courtesy of Ms. Margaret Devine)

The Warren Hills Regional Student Council held daily virtual “Spirit Days” to keep up morale and positivity during the national quarantine due to the Coronavirus. Student Council kicked these days off after the April 10-15 spring break with “Dream Spring Break Destination.” Students could post on Instagram from different locations, tagging the Warren Hills Instagram page, as well as using the hashtag #streakinisolation. Before the quarantine took place, Student Council President Jessica Howley said, “My favorite Spirit Day was the blackout we did on the day of the pep rally. It showed we were all together.” For the virtual Spirit Days, however, Howley said that her favorite day was, “Who Are You Quarantined With?” as “it was fun seeing everyone’s families and their pets!”  The Student Council also teamed up with other clubs, such as GlamourGals, the Healthy Options Club, and SAVE, to host these virtual Spirit Days.
