The car of the month represents a lot more than you would think. It’s more than an article in The Jagwire. It shows what type of person you are and cars can have characteristics like yourself. The car of the month goes to Leelee Jacoby, a senior here at Falls Church High School. The car is a 1999 Mercury Sable. Looks like a neat car!

From finding a literal heart on Pluto to witnessing the first perigee lunar eclipse in thirty years, it has been an eventful few months in outer space. As many may have already heard, evidence of liquid water recently has been discovered on Mars. On Monday, September 28, NASA revealed a potential breakthrough for both the search for life beyond Earth and the hopes to travel to Mars in the future.

Falls Church High School is very diverse. Here, you can meet people from different countries all over the world, including foreign exchange students. This year, there are two foreign students in FCHS: Kiki Lindenau (11), who comes from Germany, and me, from Russia.

Yes, the time has come that we’ve all been waiting for; it’s almost the end of the year. It may have passed by really quickly for some people, or it may have felt like it’s been a long time. It also may have been a good time for you, or maybe it just wasn’t your year. Either way, everyone has a different opinion on how they think this school year went, and what better way to know some of those opinions than by asking our fellow FCHS teachers and staff how they liked it and their thoughts on the school year of 2014-2015.
