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…

The Super Bowl is a big event for football lovers all over the US. This year the top teams are the Philadelphia Eagles and The New England Patriots. Let’s get to know these two teams a little better.

Home Stadiums

Both of these teams have great home stadiums. The Eagles home stadium is Lincoln Financial Field, which is also home to the Temple Owls football team of Temple University.  It is a large stadium with a seating capacity of 69,176.

Stacey who? Stacey Middle school played a volleyball game against Johnson Middle School on Thursday, January 25th. Although they played strong and fought really hard, we did end up losing, with both the girls’ and the boys’ teams.

“The fat L we took yesterday was very heartbreaking and I felt kind of sad, but then I was like eh, you know two L’s make a dub,” says Yasmin Lacerda, 8th grader.

“I feel alright, I mean I’m disappointed in my team but we got some improvement. A lot of us were hurt, though so….. Next week come to our game!” says Honey Nguyen, 8th grader on the volleyball team. More…

Have you heard of the ultimate challenge that if completed, you can win $100.00? This challenge is called “The Grit 100” and was created by Mr.Yohn.

To complete the challenge and get $100.00 you must run one mile every day for one-hundred days. If you are sick or it’s raining it does not matter because if you skip a day, you lose the challenge.

If not one person completes the challenge then the person that did the challenge for ninety-nine days will get $99.00. Or if the highest is seventy-five days then they will get $75.00.

The Grit 100 is every school day at 7:20 a.m. on the field where you would normally run the mile during physical education (P.E.). More…
