Page Three: The ‘wow’ that we want

October 23, 2016

Wow. That was the word I and many of my fellow classmates during our freshman year would use to describe our first Town Hall. The topic was in no way memorable, the comments were average and a good portion of the room seemed to be lost in a different dimension.

Many people ask me what I am going to miss about Shalhevet, and I usually say, “The old building.” Sure, the new one isn’t cockroach infested, and yes, it doesn’t look like an insane asylum, but the clean, sterile new building doesn’t have the same personality as the old Shalhevet.

Cancelling class to build a utopia

Cancelling class to build a utopia

September 13, 2015

At face value, it seems to make little to no sense that the school would cancel 10 periods of class time for hour-long discussions on what the Just Community is supposed to look like. Is this really worth the time we are investing?

WHAT WE’RE WEARING: Who says fashion’s just for girls?

Micah Gill, Staff columnist

September 30, 2013

“What are you shopping for, basketball shoes?” This is the response I receive when I tell my guy friends that I am going to the mall to shop for clothing. For some odd reason, fashion is almost always associated with females. They get to do the shopping, the styling and the dressing.  But I’ll be the first one to tell you that at least at Shalhevet, fashion is...

A SLICE OF SHALHEAVEN: Bittersweet farewell to cockroaches, morgues and other memories

Hannah-Leeba Ellenhorn, Lifestyles Editor

Welcome to the end of an era. Goodbye big beige box on Fairfax and San Vicente. So long, hideous blue-ish carpet. Au revoir alarm-will-sound-if-door-is-opened door that is constantly opened and never alarms. Bon voyage everlasting supply of cockroaches! Goodbye Shalhevet that I have known for so many years. The date of demolition is in the near future and it’s time that we ...

A slice of Shalheaven: Missing Seniors Syndrome

May 25, 2013

By Hannah-Leeba Ellenhorn, Arts Editor I’d like to preface my rant by disclosing a bit of a personal medical report. Upon self diagnosis (trust me, my Dad’s a doctor) I spent much of the month of April suffering from something akin to Empty Nest Syndrome. I had Empty Hall Syndrome. The silence in the halls resonated. There could be only two possible reasons ...

A slice of Shalheaven: Can You Walk On Hot Coals?

August 29, 2012

By Katie Feld, Illustrations Editor I spent the dog days of August lazily channel surfing, and came across an episode of the popular TV series, Fear Factor. I instantly had an insight, not two minutes into this episode. The key to a more productive and enjoyable school year can be summed up in one word: “fire-walking.” Let me explain. Fire-walking is the phenomenon of ordi...
