Red ribbon week is this week, everyone! The theme is: Life Is Your Journey, Travel Drug-Free ™.
To spread awareness, this week Stacey is going to have a different theme for every day to show Drug Awareness. On Monday wear 70’s, on Tuesday, wear red, on Wednesday wear neon, on Thursday wear a sports jersey, and on Friday wear something Hawaiian.
Red ribbon week started in 1985 and has been going since. The purpose is to spread awareness about drug and substance abuse.
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 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…
Every year Stacey Middle School hosts an event known as Multicultural Night. This year though they’ve added a little twist, subcultures. That’s right this year students can sign up to do subcultures such as Harry Potter and Anime.
Multicultural Night is not until March 2nd, but that means there is only about a month for students to finish up their booths. Students love to participate in this fun event, but if a student wants to participate, they better realize that it is a very time-consuming thing that you would probably have to work on for weeks if you want to make sure your booth is perfect.
If you like to sing, dance, or play an instrument then this night is looking just for you because students are allowed to sign up and perform on stage. Even some clubs are performing. For example, I know for a fact that Ukulele Club is going to perform a few songs. More…
The first student of the month for this year has come and gone, and many students have been recognized for their achievements in school. These students worked hard to prove themselves as the fabulous scholars that they are.
Teachers can only award one student per month so not many students will receive an award. Those who do receive an award should be proud of their diligent work.
If a student did not receive an award this month there are many more months to come, and there will be more opportunities to be awarded a student of the month. If any students are disappointed because they haven’t received an award, they should know that it is still a possibility.
It may be difficult, but there’s still plenty of time in the year to prove your work ethic to your teacher. Winning an award takes a lot of persistent effort. Just work hard, and remember that it’s not easy to win student of the month.
About this time next month, there will be a new group of proud students of the months, happy with their hard work and efforts. That is something we can look forward to in the future.
Sometimes school can be stressful. Homework, quizzes, projects, and even sometimes your elective! Summer was a break from all the stress of school, and I am sure everyone enjoyed their summer of 2017. However, summer is gone and we are already on our second month of school. So to remind us of all the fun, there was the Aloha Dance.
The dance took place in the MPR (Multi-Purpose Room) on Wednesday, September 27th. To get into the dance students needed to have purchased a PTSA membership. The cost of the membership was $10. Many students attended the event. Before the dance started there was a huge line of students!More…
Cinco De Mayo, meaning “Fifth of May,” is meant to commemorate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over French Forces.
The history began when Mexico declared, in 1861, a moratorium on the repayment of foreign debts. This resulted in the English, Spanish, and French troops decided to attack. By April 1862, the English, as well as Spain, had retreated. On May 5th, General Ignacio Zaragoza defeated French troops at the Battle of Puebla, southeast of Mexico City, and about 1,000 French troops were killed. More…
