Stacey Testing Week: Information 1

Jolie Phan

Stacey testing started this week. Testing will continue from April 30 to May 24.

Because testing is rigorous and stressful for many students, it is recommended that students get a good night sleep, eat a healthy breakfast, bring snacks for the test. They can also and bring something that will reduce their stress and nervousness like a note or a good luck charm or mascot.

One the first week of testing, eighth graders will take the CST Science test during their regular science block. This will last from April 30 – May 3.

The following week (May 6 – May 10) students will be taking the SBAC Math test during their homeroom. Homeroom will be extended until 10:00. There won’t be testing on Wednesday.

Monday and Thursday will be odd block and Tuesday and Friday will be even block in order to give enough time for students to complete the test.

On week three (May 13 – May 17), students will be facing the SBAC ELA Performance Task in their regular ELA classes. Students will be given Monday through Wednesday to finish but if they don’t, there will have Thursday and Friday to continue, if needed, or for make-up.

The last week for testing will be held on May 20-May 24. In students’ regular math classes, they will be taking their SBAC Math Performance Task. This test will only last on Monday and Tuesday and be extended for Wednesday-Friday if students don’t finish or missed a day.

Students will be having May 27 off from school to take a break from all of the tests. Just kidding. It is Memorial Day.

Bring it on Trimester 3 2

Kirra Kirby and Ashley Wolf

Trimester 3 is well underway and there are so many fun activities to come. Next month, in May there will be an open house on the 8th to showcase all of the hard work students have put in this year. Then on June 18th is the last day of school as well as the talent show. The school day will only be from 8:15 to 11:15 am.

For eight graders, 3rd trimester means our years at Stacey are coming to an end. Yes, it’s a sad time but the end of the year also has a ton of fun activities. The DC/New York trip just passed over spring break. All of the eighth graders who went had a great time and are sure this will be an experience they will never forget.

Another fun eighth-grade activity is the Knott’s Berry Farm field trip. Eighth graders will need to complete all three service hours and turn them into their homeroom teacher by the twenty-ninth of May to go on this trip. There will be more information given out closer to the event. More…

Jolie Phan

Valentine’s Day, a day where people share their affection with others. A day where people exchange candies with their friends and classmates. A day where you get filthy rich with chocolates and love letters (well, in your dreams). A day where the Glowintine Dance breaks in.

The dance was originally scheduled for February 13, but due to the Marina High School Informational Night that was on the same day, it was rescheduled for Wed. February 6. The Glowintine Dance is being held inside the multi-purpose room in the old location. The dance starts at 5:00 and ends at 7:00 PM.

There will be food, snacks, and drinks held outside of the multipurpose room provided by Leadership. While inside the multi-purpose room, there will be a DJ blasting some music and lights. There won’t be any contests like the Ugly Sweater contest from the Winter Dance. Bring some extra money because you will need to buy food.

So, come stop by at Stacey Middle School for the fun, lively dance. The dance is opening for all grade levels. It’s just $4 with ASB and $5 without ASB. Tickets are on sale during lunch. There will be another dance coming up too. The Spring Dance. Hope to see you there!
