Dancing Through the Decades Dance Reply

Isabella Gonzalez

National Junior Honor Society hosted the Dancing Through The Decades dance on April 10th. There was a variety of activities available at this dance and it was one to remember.

There was a Tetris wall that was amazing for taking pictures, a scrapbook wall where the students could see all the teachers in the 80s, escape rooms, a live DJ and dancing, food and beverages for sale, and a Rubik’s Cube competition.

The music consisted of some music from the 80s and also some requests from students. There were many dance circles and people just showing their skills to each other, including the teachers. There were many teachers dancing their hearts out on the dance floor while all the students watched and joined.

There was pizza, Cup of Noodles, many varieties of chips and candy, water, and soda for sale. All of the food was very fairly priced and delicious. More…

Back In the Decades Dance Reply

Jolie Phan

Stacey Middle School is hosting a Back in the Decades Dance. Mrs. Phan and Mrs. Kleen are in charge of the dance along with AVID and NJHS. The dance will be held on April 10th in the gym during 4-6 PM.

The hope is that the dance will raise enough money for the NJHS banquet and the medals for 8th-grade graduation. The teachers picked the theme of Back in the Decades while the students pick the name of the dance.

Let’s take a look at how NJHS and AVID are setting up the dance. There are going to be two escape rooms, a Rubix cube challenge, and a photo station at the dance. NJHS and AVID are divided into two groups. One group helped with the escape rooms and the other group came up with ideas for the dance.

You can dress up as anything from the 70s, 80s, 90s, etc. There’s going to be a raffle for the first one hundred people who bought the tickets. The tickets are only $4 with ASB and $5 without ASB.

NJHS (National Junior Honor Society) meeting on September 18th was very successful. There were many students that attended the meeting. This year the advisors are Mrs. Phan and Mrs. Kleen.                                                                         

The invited students, who were mostly 7th and 8th graders, had to have a minimum of a 3.5 GPA.  New 6th and 7th graders who’d like to join have to wait for the 2nd trimester so they can attend an NJHS meeting.

Mrs. Phan states, “I am really excited to guide students as they find their hidden leadership potential! We are also excited to do amazing service projects this year with a great group of students!” More…

NJHS Cares For The Brave Reply

Operation gratitude

NJHS is creating care packages for our brave soldiers fighting for our freedom overseas. Members will be bringing Ziploc bags, shaving cream, lotions, along with small items to lend a taste of home like stuffed animals, as well as earbuds for music and other media.

NJHS volunteers created the care packages using items brought in by Mrs. Gates and other members. Most of the items in the care packages were hygiene products such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, tissues, and chapstick.

These care packages will be shipped to Van Nuys for Operation Gratitude. Service family members are also able to request a care package from their loved ones.
