LETTER: Parent thanks Feather

By |2019-04-08T08:17:58-07:00February 22nd, 2019|Letter to Editor, Opinions|

As I learned more about the amazing achievements of The Feather, I felt like a child on Christmas morning. The Feather felt like a gift to Ethan and therefore to me. As a junior, he is currently taking two Feather classes that are teaching him, in a most excellent way, how to make films. All this while still in high school?

LETTER: Terry Richards, positive role model

Mr. (Terry) Richards is one of my favorite teachers from childhood. I greatly respect and appreciate his approach to teaching. My memories are that he was kind often, disciplined in love when necessary, instructed in faith and allowed his love for Jesus to permeate his actions.

LETTER: Ensemble member thanks Susan Ainley

Dear Editor: After spending six years with director Susan Ainley in the choral department, I have learned and grown so much. I am so thankful for all the ways she has been there for me, believed in me, and cheered me on. Even though all the time and effort she puts in may go unnoticed by others, she has made such a difference in my life.

During my 8th grade year in junior high choir, Mrs. Ainley gave me a solo for the Christmas concert. The solo was particularly hard for me since I have stage fright and I couldn’t get the right note on a certain part. I completely failed during the performance and barely squeaked out the notes.

LETTER: Get involved in FC homecoming next year

By |2017-10-17T14:01:00-07:00October 17th, 2017|Letter to Editor, Opinions|

The FC homecoming experience is terribly difficult to describe due to the amount of things that go on with the floats and also with being on the court. But one thing is for sure, this homecoming week will never be forgotten.

LETTER: Appreciating the news

By |2016-02-24T08:46:30-07:00February 24th, 2016|Letter to Editor|

Scholastic Journalism Week has arrived, and I can say that a few different things have been brought to my attention that I didn't quite realize. Some of The Feather staff came into our advisory classes and spoke to us a little bit about why news is so important. I completely agree with all of their arguments concerning the importance of news, but later, after further pondering, a thought struck. Nobody pays attention to the news anymore, right? The truth is, how many people really turn on the 11 o'clock news to pass time or pick up a newspaper to go along with their coffee on a Sunday afternoon? Not many people from this generation rarely do, if at all for that matter. What I am really trying to get at here is that the way we get our news is evolving, and fast.

LETTER: Rejoicing over cheer competition win

By |2016-02-11T11:10:52-07:00February 11th, 2016|Letter to Editor|

I appreciate that The Feather covered our team’s first competition back in five years. This is my second year on the cheer team and I was very excited yet nervous about performing. The day started off early and we arrived at the Ainley’s house at 7:30 a.m. I think this article did a good job at describing the stressful morning. A lot of the girls were anxious during warm ups but we got most of our nerves out with our time on the mats. I was particularly stressed because the other teams would stop what they were doing and watch us while we practiced. But it was also motivating because it made me want to work harder so that we would not mess up.
