About THB

The Heights Bulletin is a newspaper club run by the 8th Grade students at PS/IS 187 Hudson Cliffs. Founded in 2021 by three dedicated teens, THB strives to let the underrepresented voices of our community be heard. A school tradition for the seniors, THB focuses on bringing the students together. We meet virtually every Friday from 3:00 - 4:00 PM.

Cece

I am the one of the co-founders of the heights bulletin. I love writing and expressing my voice with my peers and community. I’m an athlete who loves to ball out. I was also president of the middle school in 8th grade. I can't wait for this club to be a chance for teenagers of the 187 community to speak their minds. I hope y'all enjoy!

Cheyla

Hello everyone! My name is Cheyla Ramirez Crawford. I am a co-founder of THB! I am thirteen years old and I have a huge love for free writing and poetry! My family has a pretty long line of poets, writers etc. and I’m the first to embrace journalism and a passion for politics. I was born and raised in Washington Heights, New York, but because of the pandemic, my parents moved us out of the city to Pennsylvania. Some of the fun things I love are musical theatre, dance, and reading! I have been singing since I was a little baby. Musical theatre is a passion of mine, however, my dream job is to be a lawyer. I'm super excited to write with my peers and I can't wait for you to read our work!

Izzy

Hii, my name/nickname is Izzy. I’m 13, bilingual (born out of the US), and I have been a student at 187 for almost a decade now. I’d love to say that I am a pretty active, open, and approachable person. Unfortunately because of covid my hobbies are pretty limited but I love to listen to music and expand my education whenever I have the ability to do so. With that being said because of my spare time I have just taken up quite a few extra curricular online classes, and honestly that's about it!

My favorite books are Five Feet apart, All This Time, The whole Harry Potter series, Greenglass House, and Dumplin. I like to do yoga, spend time with my pupper, and hang out with friends.

Vaylyn

I’m Vaylyn, I’m 14 years old, and I attended 187 since kindergarten until I graduated in the Class of 2021. I enjoy writing poetry, singing, and baking. I’m a freshman now, (along with everyone else working on the newspaper,) but for some reason, it still hasn’t settled in yet. I worked on the lifestyle section along with Sofia, Zoe, and Lily.

Isabella

I’m a 13 year old 9th grader and I attended 187 for 4 years. I love romance and horror movies, and I practically live for popcorn. My education is one of the most important things to me, and I joined this club so that I could help inform and inspire other students, as well as build on my love for writing.

Zoe

I'm Zoe Markoe! I'm 14, and I've been part of 187 for 10 years. I usually just read, talk to my friends, or play games for hours and let the time pass by. I love poetry and art, but overall my favorite thing is seeing my friends happy. I'm a little bit of a hopeless romantic, and my favorite stories can be found online, although my all-time favorite book is the school for good and evil.

Aleena

I’m Aleena Arain and I’m a 14 year old Pakistani. I’ve went to Hudson cliffs for around 8 years, and I’ve enjoyed every moment of it. My favorite classes are Literacy and Social Studies, but my passions and goals lie in Science. I’m from a family of doctors, and I wanna follow in their footsteps as a neurologist. I also draw a lot in my free time, digital drawing becoming a big part of what I do in the day. And when I’m not drawing, I’m watching movies and tv shows while analyzing them and taking inspiration from them for my own projects.
