2017’s most tweeted about show, 13 Reasons Why, is nothing less than a phenomenon. And so, fans around the world have been buzzing about the release of season two, in hopes that it will come out soon.

There was even a rumor that it would come out at midnight on March 30, which many fans of the show took as a credible release date. However, those who believed the rumor were disappointed to see it was anything but truthful. However, as of now, there has been no given release date besides the year of 2018.

Even still, there is no doubt that a second season will, in fact, be coming and soon. Netflix has announced that fans can expect a second season sometime in 2018. This wasn’t a big shock though, because everyone from the fans to the cast was hoping for it. More…

They are in most to all toy stores, decadent plushies with beautiful buttons or ribbons around them. Instead of buying these plushies, many people may win these fabulous toys out of a claw machine.

What is a claw machine you may ask? Well, a claw machine is a machine with one, two, three, or even four prongs (arms) to pick up a toy or drag it.

When you think of these types of complicated games, you may think of them being in an arcade or at a supermarket like “Albertsons.” More…

DBL (Design-Based Learning), a sixth-grade elective here at Stacey, is learning about ecosystems, landforms, and history. As a team, the students have debated about their landforms and what their priorities were.  They used percentages to help them with their decision. The students created landforms for science, history, and math. 

This project furthers their learning about ecosystems in science. Their goal is to learn how land and ecosystems affect civilization.

The three teachers involved are Ms. Winemiller, Mrs. Kleen, and Ms. Faulkner. Mrs. Winemiller teaches the students how the ecosystem is affected by land. Mrs. Kleen teaches the students how to use ratios and area to design the land, and Ms. Faulkner helps by teaching how the land affects trade in history.

This week you will be getting fascinating facts about . . . . Animals! So let’s get started.

  • Like 10% of the world, All polar bears are left-handed, unlike most other animals who can be both.
  • A snail can sleep for three years. I wish I could do that, their dreams must be like full movies.
  • A scorpion can hold its breath for 6 days. They aren’t built for swimming, but some varieties can stay underwater for up to 48 hours.
  • Cows have best friends and get stressed when they are separated. If they get in a fight, how do they MOOOO-ve on? I’m funny.


Dear Sam; Who’s Annoying? Reply

Dear Sam,

I know for a fact that my friends are telling people I’m annoying behind my back, however, when I tried to confront them they laughed and told me I was just being silly. My sources were reliable and I had proof of them talking bad about me. And some of these people I’ve cut ties with, but some of them hold too much power to cut them off. Am I overreacting? What should I do?

We all knew about the walkout on March 14, but that was not enough. Students want to be able to know that they are safe at school. After the Parkland, Florida shooting, students have had enough and demanded to take matters into their own hands.

The National School Walkout took place on April 20, to honor the anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre and the 13 people who died. ABC states, “The event was organized by 16-year-old Lane Murdock, a sophomore at Ridgefield High School in Connecticut, along with three of her classmates.” More…
