This year, Girl Power takes place during lunch, on Wednesdays, where girls from all grades can come to eat lunch and explore the life of girls today. They meet at G2A with friends while they discuss what is going on in their lives.

Girl Power stands for goals, individuality, respect, loyalty, potential, optimism, will,  empathy, and responsibility. In Girl Power, they watch videos on bullying, beauty standards, and the reality of a girl.

The participants also do art projects, give each other compliments, and keep everything positive. Members stay honest with everyone and talk about what is yet to come in the future. More…

Recently, the construction at Stacey Middle School has been crazy and keeping up with it has been overwhelming. The good news is that the gym will be done in time for graduation, but the bad news is that there will be a limited amount of people allowed into graduation and the tickets will be back.

Even though there are a few negatives of graduating in the gym, there are many positives outweighing the negatives. More…
