Drama I Class Plays!

By: Joseph Piazzola

Last Thursday Drama I performed their class plays that they have been working so hard on. It was a huge success! The audience loved the three fairy tale remakes: The Fairy Godmothers, where the Fairy Godmother is leaving for vacation, leaving her assistant in charge.  Snowee White and the Seven Chicks, where rockstar Snowee White needs money and fame, but his uncle dies and that changes everything. And finally Rescuing Cupid, where Valentine's Day might be canceled if an evil twin gets his way. Good job Drama 1!

Book Based Board Game

By Celeste Gomez

In 7th grade Reading classes, students are presenting their end-of-year reading projects. For his reading project, Nathan Griffiths created a board game based on the book, The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan. The game is a combination of Labyrinth and Chutes and Ladders. It is a game made for four players. To move around the board, you must use portals. Portals let you move one or two spaces depending on the character you choose. The object of the game is to see who can get to the red pyramid (the end) first. There are many loopholes and twists throughout the game.

Friendship Fudge

By Brighten Bills

On Thursday May 5th, 2018 Mrs. Kelly’s F.A.C.S exploration class had a “friendship fudge” lab. In her class, students are learning about teen strategies which include self-esteem and friendship. For this lab, the students first separated into their kitchens. Then, the students read the instructions for their “friendship fudge” recipe, sending one person from each kitchen to get supplies. While they were collecting the supplies, the other students began filling sinks with soap and water and wiping down the counters.
