Back in August, Eagle’s Eye staff chose to revisit the attempted idea of filmed announcements. Naming the new series The Morning Hatch, students are working together to bring teachers and the student body a fun new experience .
Directed by Mrs. Graves, Hatch stars Johnny Eagle and co-host, Wingman, the on-screen personas of reporters John Pruett and Gabe Miller, respectfully. The inaugural episode also features guest star Randy Meadows, editor of The Eagles Eye. Behind-the-scenes staff includes Gracey Delaney and videographer Lexie Larkins, as well as editor Gabe Miller.
The episodes will be e-mailed to teachers to present during first period, with blooper reels that may be shown at teachers’ discretion. All episodes and blooper reels will be available to view here on our blog and on our Twitter page (Eagle’s Eye Staff at handle @EaglesEye_EHHS).
Episode one is expected to be released by Friday, September 22. The blooper reel will be posted later that day.

The Seniors started off the week with a bang of color to the halls of East Hickman! There’s no place like east, that’s for sure! The Juniors got into the spirit by decorating the Junior wall with ‘The Sweetest Class!” They also created a the wall with pictures and yellow bricks for the Junior Class to sign their names.

On May 1st, East Hickman High school welcomed the Class of 2021. When the eighth-graders arrived they were taken to the auditorium and shown two videos: one about graduation requirements and the other with high school students revealing the variety of classes and courses offered here and their experiences with them.
Soon after the rising freshmen were assigned by teacher homeroom to our high school tour guides. Each group contained up to three guides. Through out the day, the eighth-graders asked many questions and even gave some quotes about coming to high school ranging from “High school is definitely going to be interesting” to ”I’m really excited about next year.” One student jokingly commented, “Why is everyone here so tall?”
Overall, the tour guides enjoyed escorting the upcoming freshmen and showing what the high school has to offer them. Some of the high school students even got to greet their favorite middle school teachers. At the end of the tour, the eighth- graders returned to the middle school with their preview of high school fresh on their mind. East Hickman High School welcomes the Class of 2021 next year!
