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…

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

This is Knott a Drill! 3


Elaine Tong

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.

Glowintine Dance 3

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.
