Flip Out About Foster City Foods

Already looking shiny and sparkly with multiple apartment construction projects, Foster City is now or will soon be home to TPumps, Five Guys, Quickly, and Pieology. TPumps can be found next to CVS Pharmacy in The Metro Center on Hillsdale Boulevard. While many SMHS students are sad that their beloved TPumps is no longer minutes away from school, senior and TPumps employee, Olivia Seto shared that it was time for a change. “The lease was up, and we didn’t want to stay there, because the building was nasty. And now I don’t have to pay for parking.” Ryan Kalugdan, another…

Sequoia Heart Screening Saves Lives

When you’re getting checked up at the doctor’s office, they might tell you that your body is in shape and you are in fact quite healthy. However, a normal doctor’s visit does not include one thing: an EKG. Electrocardiograms check for possible problems with the electrical activity of your heart, problems that may lead to sudden cardiac arrest. One in 100 teens in the USA have an underlying heart condition that can put them at risk for sudden cardiac arrest. These conditions can be found with an EKG, and preventative measures can be taken. But because these conditions are not…

We Shook our Napkins in New York

Like Alicia Keys sang in the song Empire State of Mind: “big lights in New York will inspire you.” And that is precisely what happened to me on the wondrous Dance Field Trip to NYC. After a restless red-eye flight, 98 other students and I, bundled in thick layers and armed with signature orange scarves, staggered into the streets of New York. During our first day in the Big Apple, we visited some classically tourist-y landmarks. We saw the Statue of Liberty and toured the 9/11 Memorial, snapping selfies left and right while soaking in intriguing facts. Throughout the rest…

Interfaith relations were strengthened on Saturday when Muslim Fellowship Club and Christian Club united at a local mosque in order to volunteer for Second Harvest Food Bank. The bearcats, along with many other volunteers from the community, showed up at 7:45 a.m. in order to set up food stations and package together fresh produce.

Heidy Mejia, a mother of two, said “Rent living is so expensive, so this…
