Leadership and 8th grade CCR, College and Career Readiness, went to Disneyland in October to learn the characteristics of being a strong leader: confidence, curiosity, constancy, and courage.

Once they arrived at Disneyland, Leadership and CCR split up in groups for the training. Each  group had a leader from the Disneyland staff. The groups walked around the park and did activities that taught teamwork and leadership skills. During the training, the students also got to ride Splash Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Shoot Straight Reply

This semi-new club has caught the attention of new and old students at Stacey Middle School. Archery takes place every Monday and Tuesday from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Northwest field. Fellow teacher Mr. Dandridge, along with Coach Mike, has trained Stacey students to shoot with precision.

“I think it’s awesome ‘cause I get to learn about archery and how to have correct form.” said eighth grader, Kevin Doan. Kevin is not the only one that enjoys archery. The students and coaches are often seen cracking jokes and smiling.

Before the students can shoot, they need to prepare by setting up all the equipment such as targets, bow stands, bows and arrows. Once this is done, the coaches and McKenzie Duignan string the bows to get them ready for shooting. Like all sports, the archers must warm up using stretch bands to go over the form and aiming at the target. More…

As all students should know, Wednesday will be taken off of our school day for Veteran’s Day. Many may think of this day as a free break, but for others, a day to respect loved ones and more.

Today, a five minute charity blast took place in each of the homerooms. In total, Stacey planned to hit $862 of donations. All students have been asked to bring one dollar to donate to Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. More…

WHOOHOO! Stacey students had a spooktastic time on October 29th; everyone talked with their friends, ate pizza, watched the movie Hotel Transylvania, and took tons of photos. Sadly, no werewolves, Edward Cullens, Pepes or Poot Lovato were found at this scary event.  

A seventh grader, Justin Pham, said, “Darkfest was fun because I was with my friends, watching a movie, and eating a lot of food. My favorite part of Darkfest was eating all the food…” More…

Brine Shrimp Reply

The seventh graders raised brine shrimp in Mr. Dandridge’s and Ms. Erdelyi classrooms. They looked over them for many weeks and recorded the hatchlings’  actions.

“The first one is always exciting,” says Ms. Erdelyi, a science teacher at Stacey, “It is one you will never forget.” While learning the value of teamwork, effort, and curiosity, seventh graders learned interesting information and facts about these microscopic creatures. More…

Mrs. Valverde created a new dance club this year that gives students at Stacey Middle School a chance to dance. Participants in the dance club have been practicing outside Mrs.Valverde’s classroom since October 5th.

Mrs. Valverde and her ten students are very excited to perform their new piece at Dark Fest. They are currently rehearsing to the song, “Thriller” by Micheal Jackson for their performance.

Seventh grader Rachel Ravsten of the Stacey Dance Club said, “I have a really good dance instructor.” Rachel also says she “loves” the club because she was introduced to a lot of nice people there.

The dance crew begin their practice by stretching first. After that, they review what they had done at the last rehearsal. Once they finish reviewing, Mrs. Valverde then adds new dance moves to the piece.  Mrs. Valverde said, “We plan just to have fun and make students lead the club dance. We are excited to see our dance family come together!” More…
