Stacey students were introduced to this school year’s clubs, some old and some new, during Club Rush on Wednesday, Oct. 4th.

As students finished eating lunch and exited towards the field to play, they had a chance to pick up a flyer with information for each club at the booths set up along the way.

“It was really cool. All of the clubs had a table with flyers. There were so many choices,” said eighth-grader Kira Temple. More…

Does School Impact Students’ Sleeping Patterns? 3

Sleep is an important factor of students’ everyday routine. Sleep refreshes your brain and body for the next day. Adolescents at ages ranging from 10-14 need about nine to ten hours of sleep every night. However, that consistency tends to change as school approaches.

As teenagers grow, they generally start to become naturally short on sleep; as homework in school piles up, the amount of sleep students get can drastically change from the amount they should have every night.

The amount of sleep adolescents get every night ranges from seven hours to five hours. That’s a two to a five-hour difference. For adolescents at ages ten through fourteen, less than nine hours of sleep can affect their performance in school and out of school activities. More…

Passing Period: More, Less, Or Keep the Same? 3

Gavin Mercado

Some students are early to class, some are late, and some are just on time. Is a four-minute passing period really enough for students to get from class to class?

Student Jenna Montanez states, “I think we need more time so that we can eat food and talk to friends longer.” 

However, Stacey student teacher Ms. Quijas says, “I believe Stacey gives enough time for students to get from class to class.”

When asked, some students agreed with Jenna. However, some agreed with Ms. Ouija’s opinion.

Both Jenna and Ms. Quijas’s opinions are relevant, but the real question is, what do you think?

Hello, Stacey Cougars!

It’s going to be a kind of slow week, but let’s just go over what will be going on.

Parent teacher conferences will be taking place after school all week. You’ll be released at 1:29 each day to give your teachers ample time to speak with you and your parents. This may be a good time to get on your teacher’s good side.

Don’t forget that Mrs. Doyle will be hosting Math Breakfast Club Tuesday and Thursday. If you have any questions about math, she’ll be there in the morning to help. More…

What is Yearbook up to? 3

Have you seen kids walking around campus with cameras recently? If so, it is because yearbook students are working hard to create this year’s yearbook, and I think it will be the best one yet. They have been taking a lot of photos and learning things, too. They have been learning how to create layouts for the pages and captions for the photos.

One yearbook student named Devon Jacobi said, “I have learned so much in this class so far. I love the way Mrs.Phan teaches, and I look forward to learning new things from her. “

Each student has to take at least five good photos per week. Five photos multiplied by about 40 weeks of school turns out to be around 200 photos per student! And multiply that by 25 students, and you get around 5000 photos! That is a lot of photos! With this many photos, you have a good chance of being in a few. So when you see someone with a yearbook badge and a camera, smile for the camera!
