Every year Stacey Middle School hosts an event known as Multicultural Night. This year though they’ve added a little twist, subcultures. That’s right this year students can sign up to do subcultures such as Harry Potter and Anime.

Multicultural Night is not until March 2nd, but that means there is only about a month for students to finish up their booths. Students love to participate in this fun event, but if a student wants to participate, they better realize that it is a very time-consuming thing that you would probably have to work on for weeks if you want to make sure your booth is perfect.

If you like to sing, dance, or play an instrument then this night is looking just for you because students are allowed to sign up and perform on stage. Even some clubs are performing. For example, I know for a fact that Ukulele Club is going to perform a few songs. More…

Progress Reports??? Oh, No! Reply

That’s right, Progress Reports are being sent out for the second trimester. Surely, right now some students are stressing out trying to bring up their grades so their teachers don’t have to give their parents progress reports.

On February 1st, the second-trimester progress reports will be mailed home. But remember that the teachers all have their own expectations and will be filling out the reports this week.

So, if you aren’t up to date with your teacher’s expectations, you better hurry up.

A new club at Stacey is having it’s first meeting. Gay-Straight Alliance is a safe place where students can talk about sexuality, gender identity, and of course, coming out.

The meeting will be this Wednesday, January 24th in room C1. It will meet in It’s going to be a day to remember.

Everyone is accepted in GSA, whether if you´re gay, straight, bisexual, pansexual, autosexual, lesbian, heteroflexible, homoflexible, agender, transgender, the list just goes on.

And a nice motive to come might be the rainbow cupcakes. Yummy! It is not only a safe space to talk, but also a place to enjoy a ton of rainbow frosting.

Many have a hard time coming out, and the club was created to help others during hard times and help them embrace their true selves.

We hope to see you there!

Until next time Stacey students, have a great day!

Do you like burgers? Do you like chicken nuggets? Actually, that kind of sounds good right now. Anyways, it’s all at STACKED!

On January 23rd, Builders Club is hosting a fundraiser for STACKED, and 20% of your total bill will go to Stacey Builders Club! At the very end of May, all Builders Club funds will be transferred to “Make-A-Wish.”

You may be wondering, “What is STACKED?” STACKED is a “burger joint” right across from the well known Bella Terra. Don’t worry if you do not like burgers. They also have salads, chicken, steak, tacos, fish, etc. There are so many options to choose from. More…

Hello, my pretties!

Did you all enjoy Winter Break? I hope so. Go ahead and tell me your favorite part in the comments!

Anyways, we’re back now and, as such, we’ve got a lot on our plate this week.

Builder’s Club meets Tuesday. Gavin Mercado, the treasurer of the club, says they have some great games planned, so be sure to swing by.

Cougars for Christ will be meeting this Friday, as will Anime Club.

Okay, now here’s what I’m really excited to tell you… We have a new club here at Stacey, started by ME. It’s called the Gay-Straight Alliance and, though it’s common in high schools, most middle schools lack it. Now, it’s coming to Stacey. Our first meeting will be this Wednesday. Something special awaits those who come.

Well, that’s all for now, Cougars! May 2018 bring you magnificent things!

P.S. It’s Universal Letter Writing Week. It may seem a bit archaic, but it’s also a great way to reflect. Just give it a try. I’ll see you all next week!

Winter break is almost here. Starting on December 22nd, winter break will officially start. That’s only three days before Christmas. We will return on January 8th.

Winter break isn’t just exciting because students don’t have school. It’s mainly exciting because everyone gets to spend time with their families during such a happy and joyful day, Christmas or any other holiday for that matter.

Hopefully, everyone has a great winter break creating lifelong memories with family and friends.

Helllllllllllllllllo!

How are you all today? Wonderful, I hope.

Corporate Attire has started, so eighth graders should come to school on Tuesday in their fanciest clothes.

So, the main thing going on this week is, of course, the canned food drive. Donate all you can to earn points for your class. Beans, Mac ‘n Cheese, feminine products, etc. You can even donate money. Each dollar you bring in will count as four points. Whichever class earns the most points will win a fabulous prize! More…

Anime Club meets this Friday, so get ready to talk about whatever it is you talk about in there.

Saturday Academy on November 9th 5

Students these days have a hard time keeping their grades up. These problems only worsen when students miss school days and opportunities to learn. Typically, absent students have no way of making up these lost days.

However, there are ways to help students get their grades up once again. One of these ways to get help is by attending Saturday Academy. Saturday Academy is there to help students, and any struggling students should really consider attending.

Saturday Academy is also a good way for the school to recover lost funding. Missed days of school cause the school to lose revenue, so by attending, students will help the school as well as themselves.

The activities students will be involved in here include movie script analysis, science dissection with Mrs. Cleckler, gardening with Ms. Thach, music workshop with Woodruff, and study skills time.

So, on November 9, 2017, students can come to Stacey for Saturday Academy. It will last from 9 am- 12:30 pm, and there will be plenty of fun, school-related activities for students to do.

Hello Staconians! How are all you lovely children on this fine day?

There isn’t too much going on this week, seeing as it’s the start of a new trimester and everyone is trying to adjust, but Stacey Middle School will be hosting Saturday Academy. If you’re interested in dissection, volleyball, or film analysis, feel free to come. And if none of those interest you, there will be a Study Skills class for students who need to work on missing, late, or upcoming assignments. You may even see a few journalism students there!

Report cards will be mailed home on the 11th, so if your parents haven’t check Jupiter Ed in a while, you might want to run.

P.S. Friday is National Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day. Yeah, that’s a real thing. So here’s the question: If you could travel backward or forward in time, when would you go and why?
