Mr. Cota held the 6th and 7th-grade football tryouts on the 18th which consisted of drills to see the student’s skills in action. Mr. Cota seemed excited about this upcoming season and about training boys and girls to develop their skills and their teamwork. “My hopes are always that we have good characters and that they can develop into leaders,” he says.
On September 19th, 8th-grade tryouts began. The students also did drills to see how they played together. Final tryouts were the on September 21st. Mr. Cota was impressed with the expertise his team of great players exhibited. They will be representing Stacey for flag football this year against Johnson and Warner Middle School.

The team plays Warner on October 10th at Warner, Johnson on October 24th at Johnson, and both Warner and Johnson on November 14th here at Stacey. Listen to the announcements for more information.
This year’s flag football team will be one for the record books! We hope to see many Stacey students at the games!
Has anyone ever noticed how full of holes our field is? It’s because of all the gopher tunnels underneath the grass. This issue poses a danger to all the students during PE and when they are on the field during lunch.
Many students have slipped into a hole while running the mile or twisted their ankle during lunch. These holes need to go. “We have many boys and girls who are on outside sports teams who refuse to try at school, for fear of twisting their ankle,“ says Mr. Yohn. “Even our own Stacey running team won’t go out on the field anymore.”
Besides the danger, these holes are prohibiting the grass from growing. At the moment, our field is not something to be proud of. The gopher holes are preventing that. More…
Every year, students in grades fifth and seventh have to partake in the often dreaded Physical Fitness Test, where the teachers test each and every student on their physical abilities. Well, that time came for all students in seventh grade that happen last week for seventh-graders at Stacey Middle School.
There were several different abilities that were tested including the sit and reach, curl-ups, the mile run, and push-ups. Besides that, they also took the students’ height and weight.
For things such as the curl-ups, push-ups, and the mile run, every student has to reach a certain goal, which varies due to gender. More…

Can we all agree that this year’s Super Bowl was great? With this year being the Patriots 10th Super Bowl, a lot of people thought they would take home their 6th Super Bowl win, but the Eagles were in the lead the whole game except for the 3rd quarter.
The first quarter was 9-3 Eagles in the lead, the second quarter was great and the Eagles were still in the lead 22-12.
Then came the halftime show. The songs were great, Justin Timberlake sang a mashup of songs such as “Filthy”, “Rock Your Body”,”Senorita”,”SexyBack”, “My Love”, “Cry Me a River”, “Suit & Tie”, “Until the End of Time”, “I Would Die 4 U”, “Mirrors”, and “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” During the performance, Timberlake went up into the stands and a kid took out his phone to take a selfie with the star, but what was he doing on his phone for so long? Well, the question of “how long did it take him to open the camera?” caused an outbreak of memes. More…
