Avalyn Walton

Almost everyone loves cookies, with the sweet and delicious flavor found in every bite. And Otis Spunkmeyer Cookie Dough is no exception to that statement. That is why this year, the Stacey Middle School fundraiser will be having students sell cookie dough to win a variety of prizes, depending on the amount sold.

There will be many different Otis Spunkmeyer Cookie Dough flavors to choose from, and most people are sure to find at least one they enjoy. The money earned from this fundraiser will go towards the yearly cost of Jupiter Ed and other school activities. Overall, this spring fundraiser will help benefit not only the students but the entire school. More…

Hello, Stacey Cougars! How are you? Fabulous? Fabulous.

Okay, so first thing’s first. This Tuesday, Builders Club will be meeting to go over our next fundraiser.

GSA is scheduled for this Wednesday. Gay, straight, trans, ace; it doesn’t matter as long as you’re happy. We welcome everybody. You do you.

Cougars for Christ meets this Friday and with a special guest– PIZZA! That’s right, you can stuff your mouth with pizza this Friday in G2B. Sounds divine. (I’ll go home.)

March 30th is your last day to change schools. If you don’t want to go to the school you’ve been assigned to, you have to apply by then. It’s first come, first serve, so get moving! More…

Pi Day 3/14 6

Guess what, Cougars? March 14th is Pi Day. No, it is not pie day, and we don’t do it to eat pie.

Pi is a math term which means the circumference of any circle divided by its diameter. Pi is an irrational number which means it is a non-terminating and non-repeating decimal.

In other words, it goes on forever. To represent pi you can use 3.14, 22/7, or the pi symbol.

To celebrate Pi Day, surprise your teacher with how much you know about Pi. The more you know the smarter you are.

The month of March is very exciting for Cougars for Christ. There will be a meeting after school in G2B on March 9, March 16, March 23, and March 30.

On March 9th the snack will be Cup o’ Noodles, March 16th will be pizza, March 23rd will be hot dogs, and March 30th will be donuts and milk.

However, there won’t just be food at the Cougars for Christ. There will be lots of people and special guests. The best part is, you don’t have to be religious to come.

Cougars for Christ just wants to show the school what this club is about. So come check it out!

Hello, my delicious little muffin children! How are you on this fine morning? I hope you all had a lovely time at Multicultural Night!

Anime Club is meeting this Friday. Have fun doing whatever it is you do there.

Cougars for Christ is also meeting this Friday. I’m not entirely sure what goes on in there either, but have a fabulous time!

This is the last week of the trimester, so get those grades up while you can.

Good luck, Cougars!

P.S. Sunday, March 4th was the start of “No More Week.” Stand with us to fight against domestic violence and sexual abuse. Change is possible. We can say “No more.”

McDonald’s Shamrock Shake is Shaking its Way Back into the Menu! 1

Just as Starbucks’ pumpkin spice latte signals the beginning of fall, McDonald’s Shamrock Shake gives us the certainty that spring is on its way!

What is a Shamrock Shake, you may ask? The Shamrock Shake is a seasonal green-dyed mint-flavored milkshake dessert sold at McDonald’s during March to celebrate the Irish holiday, St. Patrick’s Day.

“It tasted minty but less like a candy type of mint and more like straight mint-leaf. It was really thick and that was probably my favorite part. The consistency was just thick enough to make my taste buds happy,”  says Avalyn Walton, a seventh grader, after trying her first shake. More…

Meet Zoe king. She claims to have never taken a perfect photo, although her friends disagree. She dreads the semiannual picture days.

“”I always look bad,” says Zoe King.

Though, she’s not the only one. Many of the Stacey Middle School students believe that their picture always seems to come out awkward.

Speaking of pictures, Spring picture day is here. Tuesday, Feb. 27th.

This year students are in for quite the treat. More…

Hello, my lovely little cubs! How are you on this fine morning?

This week is fairly relaxed, but there’s something very exciting on Wednesday: Our second ever GSA meeting! I’m so excited to finally meet all our members. Whether you’re gay, straight, bisexual, asexual, transgender, or genderqueer, we’d love for you to come enjoy some lovely snacks and conversation.

Builders Club meets Tuesday at 2:45 in B3.

Gaming Club is meeting this Wednesday, too. Have fun slaying dragons (or whatever it is you do there)!

Thursday is the first day to apply for the Girls Only Math Competition at Warner Middle School. Good luck!

This Friday, Anime Club has a meeting.

Well, that’s all for now, Cougars! Have an awesome week!

P.S. This Wednesday is also National Rare Disease Awareness Day, so keep an eye out for a touching article on one of our own: The lovely Juneau Resnick.

Mrs. Valverde, Multicultural Night and its New Features Reply

Multicultural Night is on the horizon. It will be on Friday, March 2nd. As usual, Mrs. Valverde is working tirelessly to make this an event where everyone can be themselves and feel at home. We sat down with Mrs. Valverde to ask about how much this school event has evolved and changed over the years. 

Before we get into the interview, though, we want to give you an idea as to how much goes into an event like this. There are dozens of booths at this activity, which means a lot of research on different cultures and a lot of planning and organizing. Mrs. Valverde also has to monitor how the students are doing along the way. She has to double check everything.

Imagine being a teacher, having to plan lessons, grade all of her students’ assignments, having to manage your life, pay your own bills, and then having to plan a school event! I’m having trouble just being a teenager, let alone an adult.
