On Saturday October 27, 2017, the East Hickman Spanish Club traveled to Cheekwood for ‘El Dia De Los Muertos’ or The Day Of The Dead festival. The festival included authentic cuisine, vivid art, vibrant activities, and traditional food, music and dance. The Spanish Club had an amazing time experiencing the colorful Spanish traditions that the festival had to offer.
Spanish club participated in the Day of the Dead holiday at EHHS with a special menu at Café Aguila and with traditional memorials to honor students’ loved ones who have passed away.
Purchase a ticket for $5 for this coming Friday, November 10th to watch the reigning champs Chisty Dressler and James Scruggs defend their title against old rivals and newcomers, Bryan Pence, EHHS football coach; Michelle Gilbert, Director of schools; and Julia Thomasson, Director of special programs.
Who will take home the belt (and the glory) this year? Tickets may be purchased from a high school teacher or at the door. The show will begin at 7:00 pm.
Girls’ and Boys’ Cross Country teams competed in regional runs this past weekend. The boys finished 8th out of 13 teams while the girls tied for 3rd, coming in 4th after the tiebreaker.

Coach Harris updates, “After a rough first 9 holes, Isaac Braman bounced back shooting 2-over on the front to finish the first day T-34. He looks to keep that momentum going today and continue climbing the leaderboard!”
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. The blooper reel will also be available to view on our Twitter page (Eagle’s Eye Staff at handle @EaglesEye_EHHS).
