Ah yes, it has been a long time. A very long time in fact. The last “Would You Make That Deal?” was in 2015! I’m excited to say, we are back! Now let’s get into the deal.
Near your home, there is a haunted, abandoned house. People have been dared to go in there, but they never came back! Now here’s the deal.
If you spend the night in that house, (from 6pm to 7am.), you are guaranteed a full-scholarship to Harvard. You will also earn 2 million dollars. Remember, you have to survive. You could die. 13 hours and 13 hours only! Would you make that deal?
Here at Stacey Middle School, we have 935 students. If you multiply that by two you would get roughly 1,870 pairs of eyes here at Stacey. Everyone hears this quote all the time, “No one’s the same, everyone is unique.” but when it comes to eyes is that true? Are each pair of eyes unique in their own way?
Yes, it is true. Eyes are very unique. No two eyes have exactly the same iris patterns. Look in the mirror at both of your eyes. Just like fingerprints, identical twins don’t share the same iris swirls and patterns, so each of their irises is also unique. The irises in both of these eyes are unique from the others.
The color in your eye is the result of variations in the amount of melanin, a pigment found in the front part of the iris of the eye.
The lack of this pigment results in blue eyes, some pigment gives green and lots of pigment gives brown eyes. So light brown eyes just have a bit less melanin than darker brown eyes. More…
We humans come up with some truly amazing things to celebrate, and all of them are completely necessary to everyone. I mean, coming up soon National Bubble Wrap Day on January 29th. And naturally, I’m sure we all celebrate it; I mean how could we not? Holidays like that are my reason for waking up in the morning. They are just so important and not un-necessary at all!
But seriously, why does this exist? I don’t know a single person who will come up to me on the 29th and ask me how I plan on celebrating National Bubble Wrap Day.
That’s not where it ends either, January 27th is National Chocolate Cake Day. I know I won’t be celebrating, but will the majority of people want to? Fill out the poll below to let us know whether or not you enjoy these seemingly useless holidays.More…
It’s unbelievable, but Musical.ly may soon be coming to an end. There have been many petitions and websites displaying the thought of permanently dismantling Musical.ly.
For example, www.ipetitions.com has a petition with over 330 signatures. The creator of the petition says, “Sign this to raise awareness about how Musical.ly is a horrible, cancerous application, and sooner, hopefully, end it for good.” Taylor Mayfield, from Somerset says, “this app is horrible and kids get on there and are exposed to bad songs.”
There are many comments on these petitions shaming Musical.ly for its inappropriate nature, but others say it’s a harmless way to have fun with friends. What are your thoughts on Musical.ly possibly ending?
Eighth graders, you’ve probably heard your teachers saying, “From this point on the school year will go by very fast.” Well, they’re not wrong.
Starting at the beginning of February, students will be able to choose what high school they will go to. You will automatically be placed in the school you’re closest to, so if you’d prefer to go to a different one, make sure to fill out the necessary forms.
Don’t make the decision to go where your friends are. If you have a passion for theatre and the arts, then go to the school with the best performing arts program. If you love football, go to the school known for their stellar football team. Pick a school you will best flourish.
So, now it’s time for the big question… What high school will you be attending?
Every month students in Mrs. Ortega’s eighth-grade honors language arts class are required to read a specific genre and take an AR test on that book by the end of each month.
“It can be a chore, especially when it’s a really boring boo, but reading genres that I don’t normally read like, classical books, kind of opened my eyes to see that it doesn’t have to be a YA book to be interesting,” said Kylie Brennan, an 8th graders in Mrs. Ortegas eighth period honors class.
Students, however, are still allowed and encouraged to read a book of their own as well. But the big question is. . .More…
Nintendo has made two consoles of the twenty-first century that exploded the stores with people rushing in to buy them. One of the consoles is from June 2010, while the other was released in March 2017. What is it? The Nintendo 3DS and the Switch of course! Lots of people say one is better, but others disagree. So which one is better: the Switch or the 3DS?
The 3DS is smaller than the Switch. Its ability to change to the third dimension is what really makes the 3DS enjoyable for all ages.
The Nintendo 3DS was first introduced in February 2011, and it was a successor after Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo 3DS XL. There are some accessories people can use to help visual gameplay or to have a bigger memory to store more games. More…
Some people were Disney fans, and some people were Nickelodeon fans. However, why is nobody talking about how the old Disney Channel was many times better?
Many people grew up watching the Disney Channel classics. Children’s lives were full of “That’s So Raven,” “Lizzie McGuire,” “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” and “Even Stevens.” These shows were always relatable and spread good and positive messages.
However, these days Disney Channel is filling up their show list with a mess of random shows like, “Bizzardvark” and “Bunk’d” and “Stuck in the Middle.” Sadly, these shows are less relatable and less satisfying in general.More…
