Each year at Stacey Middle School, the National Junior Honors Society members in eighth grade,  who participate and meet the requirements for the club, receive a medallion to remind them of their hard work and dedication to society.

Mrs. Gates, the NJHS instructor, states, “For eighth graders to be eligible for the medallion, they have to be in NJHS for at least two trimesters, and one of those trimesters has to be the third. You can do the first and the third, or the second and the third.” More…

Where water is present, life is possible. So what does that mean for Mars, where Nasa’s Curiosity rover has found evidence of liquid water on the surface?

Welcome Back Dance Reply

Destiney Hagberg

The welcome back dance Wednesday, September 30 was the first dance of the school year and the chance for new students to experience their first major Stacey event.

As you walked by the the room, you could hear the loud music and screaming kids. Once in, dancing kids were having a blast and lights shone everywhere. Students from sixth, seventh, and eighth grade attended, and it lasted from 1:45 to 3:15

Eighth grader Tyler Acosta said, “I loved the dance; it was so cool. I loved the lights and and the really loud music. It made it so much fun to go to.”

The dance provided food and drinks for those who attended. Tickets, at the cost of eight dollars, provided students not only entry to the dance, but the chance to become a Stacey PTSA member. Students whose parents had already paid for PTSA membership at registration received a free ticket. Purchases of membership helps support the PTSA and raise money for other future events at our school.
