This year, many candidates ran for the ASB office this year. Give it up for our new President, Leanne Le, and our Vice President, Kayleen Tran, and our treasurer and secretary, Jasmyn Schubert, and Ethan Tran. There is no doubt that this will be another great year at Staconia!

The journalism team interviewed many students. Some voted for Allison Davis, who did not win. One student said she was, ¨a trustworthy and kind student who would get things done if she won for president.¨

For vice president, Summer Boren and Alyson Boren said that they voted for Avery Taumoefolau because ¨she is a very enthusiastic and energetic person and she´s also a good friend to both of us.¨ Lastly, coming from Ms. Walters, Ethan Tran was the best candidate running for a secretary because ¨he is very respectful and helpful.¨ More…

Spring Dance or Nah? 4

It has come to students’ attention that the Spring Fling was canceled due to low ticket sales. Instead, the leadership team has created a Spring Dance. The Spring Dance will be on May 9th from 1:45 to 3:15. But the real question is what do you think about it?

Leadership was holding their very first Spring Fling, and Stacey apparently wasn’t buzzing with excitement.

The leadership classroom had planned a Spring Fling, but it was entirely different from the “pictured” Spring Fling in the classic Mean Girls movie. Stacey’s Spring Fling would not be a dance but would be more similar to a fall fest. There would’ve been barbeque, music, and games.

“I’m really excited for it,” said eighth-grader Aiyanna Dejacimo before the event was canceled. “I’m looking forward to just hanging out with friends after school.” More…

Meme Day Reply

Averi Farren

Meme day is here! Many students have been anticipating this day, March 30th, and have thought of all the memes they could use to get their costumes ready.

What is a meme many might be wondering? A meme (mēm/ noun) is an element of a culture or system of behavior that may be considered to be passed from one individual to another by non-generic means, especially imitation. A humorous image, video, piece of text, etc., that is copied (often with slight variations) and spread rapidly by Internet users.

Basically, a meme is a picture/video with a funny caption that you relate to, quote on the daily, or have a good laugh at it and send it to a couple friends. Many send them via Instagram, Snapchat, iMessage, Twitter, etc. More…

Meet five-year-old Amari. He was diagnosed with precursor B-cell lymphoblastic leukemia in October 2015. Heroes like Amari should never fight cancer alone.

Stacey students are helping patients like Amari this year by participating in the Pennies for Patients charity fundraiser. The fundraiser began Feb. 5th and runs until Feb. 23rd, and the goal is to receive $2,018.

This fundraiser, however, isn’t for the PTSA or for the homeless. It is going to be donated to find effective cancer therapies for the LLS, or Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. More…

Kill Them With Kindness! Reply

As most of you already know, the week of January 22 through the 26 is Kindness Week, but that doesn’t mean we should only be nice one week of the year. Kindness Week is about reminding us to be kind to everyone every day. So, here’s the real question, how can we be more kind?

   Have you ever teased someone because they are different?

   Have you ever spread mean rumors or gossiped about another person?

   Have you ever posted something mean on social media about another person?

Well, this might shock you, but those examples are not considered nice. So during Kindness Week, make sure to remind yourself of the real meaning of kindness. More…

Did You Enjoy the Fall Fest? 9

Avalyn Walton

Fall Fest, Stacey’s annual outdoor evening event, was last Thursday and many students had a terrific time. With great snacks and an awesome movie to watch, students had the perfect opportunity to spend a night making memories.

Despite having some small difficulties with getting the movie Beetlejuice, directed by Tim Burton, in color in the beginning, this movie was thrilling and fun. 

For two hours, students had fun either watching the movie, or just hanging out with friends. And although most students really enjoyed themselves, when talking to a few it is apparent some people want the function to change slightly. It’s all a matter of opinion and we want to hear yours.

Be our Guest, and Join us for Fall Fest 3
