From flutes to trombones, to trumpets, Stacey has them all. But, aside from all the classical music, there is a group with an instrument that might be the best instrument for the beach. Ukulele Club!

The seven club members meet every Thursday from 3:00-4:00 pm in H1 to learn and practice with their Ukuleles to sound very professional. Here’s the history behind it all:

Mr. Thorsen, the instructor of the club, said that quite a few students start out in Ukulele Club, but eventually leave. This is due to their interest in other clubs. He said the group usually starts out with around 25 to 30 students. The ones that remain truly love their instrument. More…

Cinco De Mayo 2

Cinco De Mayo, meaning “Fifth of May,” is meant to commemorate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over French Forces.

The history began when Mexico declared, in 1861, a moratorium on the repayment of foreign debts. This resulted in the English, Spanish, and French troops decided to attack. By April 1862, the English, as well as Spain, had retreated. On May 5th, General Ignacio Zaragoza defeated French troops at the Battle of Puebla, southeast of Mexico City, and about 1,000 French troops were killed.  More…

“Love. Wish. Dream. Be creative. Give. Smile. Learn. Hope Trust Live. Share.” These are the words on the walls of Girl Power that warm the heart. When walking into the club, students experience a sea of posters that the girls, present and past, have created to represent what they like whether it be food or activities.

“I am” posters have been made as well by this supportive group.

“I am learning how to be confident, social, and expressive,” says Emmy Nguyen, a Girl Power participant. She also stated: “You’re not too young to start something and make a change.” More…

Garden Club-What IS happening? Reply


Katelyn Hooker

With the second farmers market coming up on Friday, Feb. 3, Garden Club is preparing for waves of students.

But, the club is actually doing other things to make the school as beautiful as it can be. A little section near the field where Stacey students run is turning into another garden to grow healthy foods.

There will be three beds in all. One bed will be devoted to the Science Department to experiment with different growing methods to experiment which recycled resources work best. They will begin using three types: hay, newspapers, and regular mulch. All Garden Club has yet to do is put the cinder blocks together, and start planting.

The club is doing Stacey a favor, however, as they are fixing all the cinder blocks that have been damaged.   

As time progresses, the bounty of Garden Club will be headed for their farmer’s markets.

Students are encouraged to attend tomorrow’s event with their parents and family members.
