June 16, 2022 So many memories come pouring into my mind when I reflect on high school, and I keep coming back to the people who made the greatest impact on my life.  At the beginning of the pandemic, I was more than halfway through sophomore year and a studen... More »

June 16, 2022 High school has been fun, and to be honest, I’m pretty sad that it’s almost over.  The pandemic obviously put a monkey wrench in my LHS experience, but I powered through it and came out a better person.  I’m glad I got to come to school for my se... More »

June 15, 2022 It is hard for me to believe I am about to graduate high school. Mostly because of the pandemic, it seems like I jumped from my sophomore to senior year. Yet here I am, writing my final article for The Lighthouse and dedicating it to those who ha... More »

June 15, 2022 “Good morning, Lyndhurst High School!”  During mornings when I wasn’t running late or struggling to find parking, I found myself in the main office reading the morning announcements. I’m so glad I took on this job, as it was one of the most enjoy... More »

June 14, 2022 Isn’t it strange that as a kid, all you want to do is grow up?  Adulthood seemed so enjoyable and exciting because grown-ups appeared to have control over their lives, doing what they wanted without anyone telling them otherwise.  From a child’s ... More »

June 13, 2022 Nobody anticipates moving to a new school district their senior year, but I wouldn’t change a thing about my journey. Kearny High School and LHS will forever be my homes.  The lessons I’ve learned, the tears I’ve shed and the long nights I’ve spe... More »

June 13, 2022 As graduation nears, I find myself reflecting on my time at LHS and thinking about the aspects of high school I’ll miss the most.  One of these is the band. The music program in this district is amazing, and I’m proud to say that I have been invo... More »

June 24, 2021 Some people tend to overlook the power of a voice. Whether it’s typed, written on paper or spoken aloud, self-expression truly gives every person a chance to stand out. I came to this realization as a result of my work in the journalism program. ... More »

June 24, 2021 I had no idea what to expect when I moved to Lyndhurst my junior year. On the first day of school, I received my schedule, arrived late to class after getting lost in the halls and grieved about not having my friends with me. My original schedule... More »


Emma Ferschweiler, editor-in-chief

June 24, 2021 I have learned so much these past three years at The Lighthouse that have shaped me as a writer and given me a passion for journalism. There are so many people I could thank and numerous journalism stories I could tell, but I will try to be brief... More »

June 24, 2021 Well, here it is: my last year at LHS, my last hurrah. I can’t believe how quickly the years have gone by, and now the end of my senior year has arrived. I’m going to miss the sports games, the school events and, of course, writing for The Lighth... More »
