Next week, on May 10th, students will run the last Mega Mile of the year.  

Leadership will be helping with this event and will have one list for boys and one for girls.  All students in 6th, 7th and 8th grade are allowed to participate in the event and are encouraged to run with friends.

The Mega Mile is for those who want to take place on the school’s list of top 100 runners.

This is Knott a Drill! 3

It is well-known that the eighth graders of Stacey will soon go on a field trip to Knott’s Berry Farm on May 24th. This event is anticipated by many students here on campus as an entertaining way to learn historical background about our country’s past.

“I feel like it’s a good opportunity to learn and also have fun,” states eighth grader Delaney Powell when asked how she felt of this opportunity of a trip.

The fees for each student planning to go is $35. It is mandatory to return this money by Wednesday, May 3. Otherwise, students will not be able to attend if they return the fees any later than the due date. More…

Bingo! 3

Free food, gift cards, and “controlled” chaos. What’s not to love?

Wednesday, March 15, Leadership passed out Bingo cards, set up tables in the cafeteria, and prepared for the mobs.

Competitors played several rounds of Bingo, including Blackout and Letter X. Not to mention, there were dozens of kids enjoying conversation and company.

“Bingo was the only school event where everybody was actually focused,” remarked seventh grader, Kelsey Tang. “The reactions were funny, too.”

The winners got to take their pick of several prizes, including gift cards for Target and Starbucks, candy, chips, and sunglasses.

Once all six rounds were finished, extra food and prizes were sold for a quarter each. Mr. Yohn was a bit dismayed that, even when they were free, nobody wanted the sunglasses.

Outsiders Day! 2

Get those leather jackets ready, Greasers! March 22nd will be Outsiders Day. 

Most eighth graders and even some sixth and seventh graders understand what this means, but for those who don’t, the book The Outsiders is about two rival groups, the Greasers and the Socs, (Which is short for Socials). The two groups are divided by their socioeconomic status. 

If you would like to participate in this fun dress-up day, come dressed in 60’s attire.

It will be interesting to see who comes as a Soc and who comes as a Greaser.

Stacey’s Glowintine Dance Thursday, Feb. 9 was a huge success, Cougars!

The black lights and glow sticks really made the event shine. Flowers were sold at the dance for a dollar and people were handing them out to their friends. Many students were also taking photos with friends in a room leadership had filled with balloons.

Student Ellie Atkins says, “The dance was fun, it was different from the others. They played good music.”

The event was the last dance sponsored by Leadership and AVID this year. The last dance for all grade levels will be in the spring and will be hosted by the PTSA.

Great success, Cougars! The final results from the Great Stacey Offering are in. Because of both the donations of the canned food, hygiene products, and money, many organizations and people have been helped out.

The Great Stacey Offering took place from December 5, 2016, to December 16, 2016. During that time, students and teachers donated canned food, hygiene products, and money to the charities of their choice. More…

Clegg, Schroeder, Eastwood, Willmore and Webber’s 5th or 6th Graders came to our wonderful campus to explore and learn about the many things it has to offer.

Before a tour, led by Leadership and Link Crew students, Mrs. DeBritton started the assembly with a big, warm welcome to our future slaves, I mean, students. She explained some rules and policies to the incoming children, spoke a bit about the school’s diversity, academics, and extracurriculars. More…

Leadership: Come One, Come All! Reply

Are you creative, outgoing, responsible, or trustworthy? Then pick up an application for Leadership ASB!

Leadership will be a 0 Period class, which means that it will start at 7:30 am every day.

In Leadership, students will learn leadership skills, money management, time management, responsibility, and business techniques that will contribute to their life.

Future 7th and 8th graders can also run for office! 8th graders can run for president, secretary, and treasurer. 7th graders can run for vice president, secretary, and treasurer.

The president helps Mr. Yohn lead the class and helps lead the students to success. The vice president will be on call in the case of the president’s absence and take over all of those responsibilities, but they too have their own tasks.

The secretary will take notes on meetings and such while the Treasurer counts and deals with all of the money the goes in and out of the school.

If you don’t want to run, that’s okay; being a representative is still cool.

To pick up an application, see Mr. Yohn in Room G2B.
