East Hickman High School’s Journalism staff hosted a night for skating and fun at Magic Wheels in Dickson. It was given the theme of “rolling back the clock” as students dressed from the decades of the 1950s through the 1980s.
On Thursday, February 22nd, the event took place after school. Different people expressed how they loved skating and would come back again if the school held another skate night. Ethan Stiltner and Jesse Pickard both mentioned how it was tough to skate at first, but it became better once they went out and did more.
Multiple students arrived dressed to impress as many of the decades of the past for the fun of the skate night. Rock and roll was represented not only by the 50s but by the 80s hairband era. A couple of the students expressed their thoughts on the topic. “Dressing up added this layer of fun to the enjoyment of skating alone,” Callie Easley stated. However, poodle skirts might not be the best for skating!
Overall, the students and teachers who arrived at Magic Wheels had a very fun and enjoyable time. Another skate night will be in the future!

The principal of East Hickman High School, Mr. Beem, competed in a Free Throw Competition with Hickman County High School’s principal, Mr. Bentley. The competition occurred during half time at the East Hickman High School vs. Hickman County High School basketball game Friday night, January 26th, 2018.
From the free throw line, each principal had 10 shots a piece, and whoever made the most baskets was the winner. Mr. Beem started out the competition with a few baskets, throwing off Mr. Bentley whose first couple of shots were air balls. The fans on both sides of the court cheered on their principal in hopes of them scoring and attempted to distract the rival principal in hopes of them losing the shot.
Towards the end of the competition, the principals had a neck-and-neck score of 7-6, with Mr. Beem in the lead. Mr. Bentley took the last shot and missed, losing the competition and causing an uproar from the fans on the East Hickman side. After Mr. Beem was victorious, he hugged Mr. Bentley with good sportsmanship and was then joyously greeted by a group of East Hickman High students to celebrate the win.
This year during spirit week at EHHS, students will dress to the theme “We got them Beat” starting on Monday, January 29th and ending on Friday, February 2nd. All dress up days pertain to music.

EHHS will have an adjusted schedule on Friday, February 2nd in order to have students participate in spirit week competitions in the gymnasium.
