As you may have seen over the last couple of weeks, the Stacey volleyball teams have been working hard to improve their skills.

Their first game will be January 18th at the Warner Gymnasium. Their first home volleyball games will be January 30th and February 1st at the Johnson Gymnasium.

We cannot have home games at our gymnasium because, unfortunately, our gym is still in progress.

The volleyball teams have already gotten their uniforms and are ready to play. Stacey’s volleyball uniforms are very similar to the football teams jerseys.

Speaking of which, Stacey’s football teams are ready to start playing and hope that you will come and support them as well.

One Snowy Carnival? Reply

Did you go to the One Snowy Night dance? If you did, you may have seen some carnival games set up at the dance. These games were provided by Stacey’s Builders Club. There were two games available for you to play.

One of the games was called “Three Snowy-Hoops”, in which players had three wreaths. The Builders Club members and board members instructed the players to throw the wreaths like frisbees. There were cones as well, and every time a wreath was rung around a cone, the player earned one raffle ticket. They also won a pencil and eraser.

The second game was called “Icicle Toss”. This was a tossing game (as the title implies). Players had three hula hoops. If they made one or less around the “icicle” they would get nothing. If they made two, they would get an eraser. Last, if they made all three, players would have gotten a pencil and maybe an eraser as long as the club wasn’t running out. They would have also gotten a raffle ticket, so long as they landed at least one hula hoop. More…

Free Starbucks Gift Card? Reply

Hello Staconians! How awesome would it be to win Starbucks gift cards, Chipotle gift cards, toys, movie tickets, and other collectibles by just doing good in school?

That’s right! When teachers recognize you demonstrating scholarly behavior, you earn an orange or gold slip of paper called cougar cash. Cougar cash is used to buy things from your teachers such as pencils, trips to the bathroom, time to charge your chromebook, and, well, sometimes pizza.

Not only can you purchase those items with your cougar cash, but now you have several opportunities to win gift cards from places you love and toys to entertain you! So here’s how the cougar cash raffle works. More…

Stacey Middle School was on The News! 1

Stacey Middle School offers many unique electives such as leadership, robotics, videography, and broadcast journalism. This year, the journalism students were thrilled to hear that they would be visiting Fox 11 News.

The idea of a field trip was initiated by eighth-grade journalism student, Madelyn Fracassa. Carol Fracassa, Madelyn’s aunt, is the one to thank. She helped arrange the tour since she produces the morning news at Fox 11 in Los Angeles.

Students arrived at Fox 11 News early Thursday, Nov. 30 around 9 am. They were first led to see the writer’s area, where most of the writing and editing are done. Soumada, a meteorologist welcomed the future journalist and encouraged the future journalists to study hard and never give up. More…

Saturday Academy on November 9th 5

Students these days have a hard time keeping their grades up. These problems only worsen when students miss school days and opportunities to learn. Typically, absent students have no way of making up these lost days.

However, there are ways to help students get their grades up once again. One of these ways to get help is by attending Saturday Academy. Saturday Academy is there to help students, and any struggling students should really consider attending.

Saturday Academy is also a good way for the school to recover lost funding. Missed days of school cause the school to lose revenue, so by attending, students will help the school as well as themselves.

The activities students will be involved in here include movie script analysis, science dissection with Mrs. Cleckler, gardening with Ms. Thach, music workshop with Woodruff, and study skills time.

So, on November 9, 2017, students can come to Stacey for Saturday Academy. It will last from 9 am- 12:30 pm, and there will be plenty of fun, school-related activities for students to do.

Hello Staconians! How are all you lovely children on this fine day?

There isn’t too much going on this week, seeing as it’s the start of a new trimester and everyone is trying to adjust, but Stacey Middle School will be hosting Saturday Academy. If you’re interested in dissection, volleyball, or film analysis, feel free to come. And if none of those interest you, there will be a Study Skills class for students who need to work on missing, late, or upcoming assignments. You may even see a few journalism students there!

Report cards will be mailed home on the 11th, so if your parents haven’t check Jupiter Ed in a while, you might want to run.

P.S. Friday is National Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day. Yeah, that’s a real thing. So here’s the question: If you could travel backward or forward in time, when would you go and why?

Every student has received a flyer or at least should have received a flyer, by their homeroom teacher, discussing Stacey Middle School’s new socks for sale.

Hello Staconians! We hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving and now you’re ready to learn!

Builder’s Club will be hosting a meeting today, Tuesday, after school for anybody interested in the club. Don’t worry if you’re not a member; we’re happy to see new recruits.

Also today after school, Mr. Cota will be hosting the first official practice for volleyball club. Good luck!

Orders for Stacey logo socks are due on Thursday. Don’t miss out on this. . . unique . . . edition to your wardrobe.

On December 1st, West Arts will be hosting a fundraiser by the name of Cabaret Night. It costs ten dollars to attend, but there will be a chance at winning a gift basket. Indulge in the talents and comedy of your peers as eighth-grade students serve you. (Work, peasants! Work!)

It’s the beginning of a new trimester, which means you’ll have plenty of time to get the grades you want and achieve your goals. If it seems like a daunting task, check out our Weekly Support Guide by Alyssa Manson. I know it may seem boring, but trust me, you’ll enjoy it.

P.S. Friday is Rosa Parks Day. On December 1st, 1955, Rosa Parks boarded a bus on her way home from work. When a white man asked her to stand so he could take a seat, she refused, saying that she was tired. She later told the press that she meant she was tired, not physically, but mentally. She was tired of the injustice she had felt her entire life.
