Ask Sam: Girl With a Crush 1

Dear Sam,

I have a crush on a guy. I thought he liked me until he started avoiding me. Turns out he asked another girl out. Then when he tried to talk to me, I ignored him and now I feel really bad. What should I do?

Sincerely,

Girl With a Crush

Dear Girl With a Crush,

Just talk to him, and see what happens. Whenever you think about it, just text him or say hi. Maybe you can focus on becoming better friends and see where that goes. Romance may or may not be in the cards, but it is better to have him as a friend rather than nothing at all.

-Sam

Her name is Demeter, the daughter of Rhea and Cronus and the sister of Zeus. The influence of Demeter was not limited to grain, but extended to vegetation, generally to all the fruits of the earth. More…

Literature can take us to magical places, places where legendary creatures roam the forests and good has the power to beat evil. Every. Single. Time.

The power of a good book is truly undeniable. To experience that power, students need to learn from the best that is available.

Several teachers Miss Walters, Mrs. Airth, Mrs. Ortega, and Miss Sale are piloting two different programs in an attempt to find the best way to teach reading and language arts in the Westminster School District. The two programs being piloted are StudySync and Amplify.   More…

Stupid. Ugly. Freak.

These are the cruel, untrue things people say about children born with microcephaly, a disease causing a baby to be born with an abnormally small head and developmental delays. While this could be caused by down-syndrome, malnutrition, Craniosynostosis, or a number of other ailments, Zika virus has been affecting a frightening number of children in the U.S., recently.

On July 6, 2016, an app was released that shook the world. Pokemon Go was the game of the year, or so we thought.

Ever since this school year started, people haven’t been as excited to play it anymore. More…

The Trimester’s Ending? Already?! Reply

Announcement!

The end of the trimester is this week! Students only have a few days left to bring up low grades.

Eighth grader Ha Ly says, “I only have a couple B’s, and I am trying really hard to bring them up to A’s by the end of the trimester!”

Also, eighth graders, need to turn in service hours. If the service hours are not turned in, then students without them will not be able to participate in the end of the year Knott’s Berry Farm field trip.

For most, service hours were due last Friday, but there is a chance to turn them in by the end of the trimester!

Take advantage of every opportunity to get those service hours and grades in!
