Holiday Service Projects

Today at lunch in Room 153, CHOC Club members will write holiday cards for children in the hospital.
The FUHS National Honor Society also participated in a service project to spread holiday cheer on Dec. 6. NHS donated over 25 homemade fleece blankets to the nonprofit organization Project Linus. The blankets will be distributed to Orange County homeless shelters and children in need.

Code Red

The FUHS computer coding club, Code Red, traveled to Los Angeles to compete in a hackathon on Nov. 9. Participating programmers were given 24 hours to create apps or games.
Juniors Chris Tran, Subin Kim, and Joseph Saada won “Most Practical” with their tutoring app that allows students to send help requests and questions to tutors.

Speech and Debate

Following their huge win at the Orange County Speech League fall tournament, Fullerton’s Speech and Debate team hosted the annual Winter Classic tournament on campus this past weekend.
Sophomore Mia Wright took fifth place in Dramatic Interpretation. In Duo Interpretation, seniors Hana Kim and Charlie Sexton placed fifth, Wright and sophomore Maggie Kelly placed fourth, and seniors Sydney Basham and Lauren Wright placed second. Lauren placed fourth in Program Oral Interpretation. Senior Josh Park placed fourth in Extemporaneous Speaking.
The team will now focus on preparing for its upcoming tournaments at Arizona State University and Stanford University.


Seniors Cooper Miller and Sydney Castiglione participated in Educational Theater Foundation’s Thespians Go Hollywood Fundraiser on Nov. 18. The foundation raised over $180,000 to support educational theater programs and help theater students pay for their educations. Miller and Castiglione performed on stage with other student thespians and even some Hollywood actors.

Link Crew

On Monday, Link Crew will host a “Cocoa and Cram” event for freshmen in the staff cafeteria. Freshmen can work with upperclassmen to study, receive advice, and de-stress before their first finals week.
Sophomore Frances Walton, Link Crew’s secretary, says she wishes she had more support as a freshman last year, prompting her leadership in the club. Link Crew is still a developing club, but Walton hopes “Cocoa and Cram” will be a fun way to encourage underclassmen.
