FHN’s North Street Coffeehouse Gives Students Outlet for Expression and Creativity

High School is different than it used to be. There is a greater emphasis on making the proverbial grade, excelling in AP classes, SAT scores, ACT scores, and other fear-provoking abbreviations. Each student must become the best student they can be in their four short years at the high school level. But what about just being the best you? Where are the opportunities for students to express themselves? Francis Howell North High School hosts an annual open mic show for just that purpose, the North Street Coffeehouse.

Watch the recap video of Day 2 of the 2018 North Street Coffeehouse.

The Coffeehouse took place in the FHN Learning Commons on Feb. 14 and 15, 2018, with a show at the beginning of each class period. Classes were allowed to observe and enjoy the various performances each day. In addition, FHN’s award-winning publications crew were on hand to live-stream the performances on the student-run FHNToday.com website.

Students – and even staff members – relished the chance to sing, play an instrument, or to read poetry or essays. Coffee and hot chocolate were available to help wash down the delicious cookies.

Students need an outlet for their voice, and FHN provides it with the annual North Street Coffeehouse. And what a pleasure it is to hear!
