Munchies for your Monday

The temperature may be dropping, but pumpkin spice season is just heating up. From scented candles to lattes nothing embodies fall quite like pumpkin spice. So while you await the grand opening of Findlay’s highly anticipated Starbucks, try these delicious two-ingredient muffins to fill that pumpkin spice latte void in your life.

Yes, two-ingredients. You did in fact read that right. An added bonus, both ingredients total about $3 at any grocery store. All you need to whip up a batch of these is one 15 ounce can of pumpkin and a box of Spice Cake Mix, along with about 4 minutes of prep time.

Once you’ve gathered your ingredients, here’s how you make the magic happen:

So to recap; combine the cake mix and pumpkin puree, add mix-ins if desired (I amped it up with dark chocolate, chopped almonds, and whole dried cranberries, leaving a few plain as well), bake them for 18-22 at 350 degrees or until a toothpick can be inserted and come out clean, then anxiously await them to cool after removing them from the oven.

After about ten minutes your muffin we’ll have cooled and you can enjoy the fruits of your labor. I prefer to enjoy mine with a plentifully ration of cream cheese frosting. Because these, along with most things in life, are even better with frosting.

These muffins are so easy, even a kid could do it (and eat half the batch afterwords)!

Got Kup?

Students have noticed a change in their head principal. Since Craig Kupferberg has made his return to Findlay High School, he has been out in the hallways and has even made appearances at athletic events.

Students at Findlay High School have taken notice of their principal around the school.

“He’s out in the hallways and witnessing what goes on in the school.” Junior Jayme Tesnow said. “I don’t think the atmosphere of the school has changed, but I do appreciate actually seeing the principal in the halls and not hidden behind a desk.”

Kupferberg explained why he is at the doors when students walk in and why he can be seen throughout the day.

“I believe that attitude is contagious. I’m a happy guy and I want to spread that.” Kupferberg said. “I’ll get a smile or a laugh out of some of the students. If we can start out the day with a positive, we’ll have a better day.”

Ms. Kim Blake shared how students have reacted to Kupferberg’s presence.

“I have students that will say, ‘has anyone ever been at the doors to greet us?’ I told them no, and they say that they think that it’s cool that he’s out there.” Blake said.

Though he says that he’s just doing his job, students appreciate Kupferberg’s appearances at sporting events.

“I like that he’s going to a lot of sporting events. He seems more involved and he actually cares what the students are doing.” Senior Marissa Wintrow said.

Even though the atmosphere of the high school hasn’t done a 180, students are noticing the little things that are making FHS just a little bit better.

Bienvenue Mme. Omwomo

mme. omwomo1A new year at FHS has brought not only the faces of new freshman to the halls, but also the faces of new faculty and staff. By now most have encountered our new principal, Mr. Kupferbeg roaming the halls between classes and greeting passing students. Ms. Omwomo, the French teacher however, is someone you’re much less likely to have a chance encounter with if you aren’t one of her students. To those of you who haven’t had the chance to become acquainted with her, here’s a quick bio of one of FHS’s newest and most unique teachers.

 

Where are you originally from and how did you end up in Findlay, Ohio?

I’m originally from Kenya, I first came to the United States to earn my masters degree at Miami University.

 

Do you speak any other languages, besides French and English?

Yes, I’m fluent in Swahili, my native languages, of which there are three, and I also speak a little German. French is my favorite.

 

What motivates you to teach high school students?

Being a role model for them. I love to teach high school because these are the formative years for the students. I love to watch them grow.

 

How is the lifestyle of a student here different than that of a student in your native country?

School actually starts much earlier in Kenya, around 6. Most students walk to school there as there is no busing system.

 

What are you most looking forward to this year?

Getting Findlay High School students to love speaking French.

Given her interesting background Ms.Omwomo shows promise to bring a new and engaging perspective to those trying to learn a language. If you pass her in the halls don’t hesitate to stop and say bonjour!

The Day the World Stopped Turning

Fourteen years ago today, an event happened that would forever change the way we operate in the United States. Most people can recall the two planes crashing into the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center in New York, but people seem to forget that there were also two other attacks.

On that same day, a plane crashed into The Pentagon and 40 passengers died trying to overtake a plane that was hijacked by terrorists on its way to Washington D.C. and crashed in a Pennsylvania field.

Even though these acts of terrorism are over a decade old, Americans still feel the effects of 9/11 today.

“We now live with greater vigilance. Our definition of freedom has changed forever” Physics teacher Tim Opp said.

When tragedy strikes, people remember where they were when they heard the news.

“I was at school. I remember I was screening what was happening before I showed it to the students.”

Since the attacks, security has been heightened in airports, the size of our military has grown immensely and we’ve been in an ongoing war with Iraq since 2003.

“September 11 is a day that Americans will never forget. Our everyday lives have changed because of it.”
