Looking Ahead: Senior Prom

Volume 1; Issue 2; April 2nd, 2019 For many high school students, senior prom is a momentous event. Many students have been waiting for their prom since the start of high school. Therefore, it can become very stressful wondering what your prom theme will be, what you will wear, and with whom you are going. Wilson High School gave seniors the chance to vote for their theme. Knowing your prom theme can help decrease stress and provide inspiration as to what one will wear. Prom is mostly about spending time with close friends who have positively impacted your high school years. Most high school students’ prom dates are their close friends or their mates. Many students go in groups of friends. T

Wilson Classes Explore Traditional Japanese Poetry

Volume 1; Issue 2; April 2nd, 2019 Many exciting projects are in progress at Wilson High School but we often don’t see the fruits of our labor publicly displayed. One of the projects students enjoyed this semester was in Ms.Lee’s writing seminar classes, where students were assigned a traditional Japanese poem or Haiku. The students were told to base their haiku on nature from trees, oceans, flowers etc. Students had to use their creativity to create five stanzas on the topic of nature they chose. Students also had to create an image on which to display their haiku. Students worked hard to formulate poetry, as well as draw and color an image to make their haiku the best. The following four a

Students' Voice

Volume 1; Issue 2; April 2nd, 2019 What do the students at Wilson genuinely think about their school and what has their experience been like? These are questions many students have always wanted to know, so The Hitching Post went to find the answers. For around a week during lunch and free time we began to ask people about their experience at Wilson, along with their opinion about school. After asking 48 different students, 12 from each grade, we began to notice a pattern in their answers. A total of 13 people selected the option “Wilson has been great”, and more than half of those people were freshman, possibly because they have not been at Wilson for long. Now 27 students chose the option

Movie Review: Titanic

Volume 1; Issue 2; April 2nd, 2019 In 1997, the famous romance/drama film Titanic was released. Leonardo Dicaprio stars as Jack Dawson and Kate Winslet stars as Rose Dewitt. The movie is about an actual historical ship that sinks to the bottom of the ocean. While many escape on life boats, many are still on board as the ship sinks and ultimately perish. To spice things up, the writer of the film added two fictional characters who fall in love as the ship has mounting problems after hitting an iceberg. The film takes place in the Atlantic Ocean from April 14 to April 15, 1912. The ship hits the iceberg due to the watchman’s lack of effort in paying attention. Jack and Rose experience love at

History Corner

Volume 1; Issue 2; April 2nd, 2019 El Sereno is a wonderful and unique town located in north eastern Los Angeles. To most people it is just a small town but little do they know that this town’s past is as unique as its present. Did you know El Sereno once had a race way during the 1920’s and 1930’s ? Formally, the raceway was known as the Legion Ascot Speedway, located along Soto St., Valley Blvd., and Multnomah St. The raceway drew massive crowds during its peak years with legendary racers racing on the track.
