Submitted by david.thacker on Tue, 12/06/2011 - 08:07

There are only a few words to describe our school's band. Incredible, Thrilling, and Rhapsody. On Thursday November 10th, the school's band had the privilege of performing with Spanish Fork High's band. At the beginning, the high school did a few pieces, but then they combined with the 9th graders for a song from The Incredibles, “The Incredibles Theme”. Afterwards they called up the 8th graders to perform “Bella's Lullaby” from the popular book and movie series Twilight, it the song which was created to be played on the piano but was soon changed so all instruments could do it.

“Do unto others what you want done to you.” Great quote right? Students over the years have started to treat each other badly. Less respect is coming from students toward other students. This leads to more arguments, bullying, and a lot more problems for the rest of the school. Respect is key, in the world. For example if you are not respectful of others then you may not be hired for a job because no one likes being disrespected.

Do you ever find yourself sticking your hand under your desk and finding one heck of a sticky surprise, or randomly sitting down in the gym and cant get up? I have! It's disgusting! I believe that many students and teachers would say the same thing. Do we want to keep chewing gym “legal” in our school? If so, lets do something about it. I don't want gum on my butt any longer! Do you?
