This week Mr. Madsen’s science students started reviewing for the end of year SAGE test. Trying to remember all the way back to the beginning of the year, the students got packets to review. The packets were filled with plenty of great things about gravity, mass, forces, and many more. The students were assigned to get in groups of two with the people at their table. The students took turns reading paragraphs of the review sheets and annotating their papers. By the time SAGE comes around, they will be ready to ace the test.

In the Dungeons and Dragons After-School Club, you get to play one of the most well-known roleplay games. When surveyed during the club, all of the participants said that they enjoyed the club. One of the players stated, “What I like about Dungeons and Dragons is that there is no goal—you can do what you want.” Then there is the magic part of the club. You can play Magic: The Gathering, but if you want your deck personalized, you will have to make your own deck. The magic tournament is happening on May 3rd. “One of the things I like about MTG is that you can play the type you like, such as black magic, or green magic,” stated one of the magic players.

Board Game Club was a club that started in 3rd term. It is over, but Parker Coe, who ran it, wants to do it again next year. It was a fun club, with lots of different games. Kids played whatever games they wanted, and there were many to choose from. Some favorites were Bang the dice game, King of Tokyo, and Codenames. Some others included Liggretto, Fugi Flush, Kingdomino, and Dimensions. There were lots of new games that people hadn’t seen. New games were brought almost every week. Favorites were brought back, and some were played every week, like Bang. They also created a new version of Bang, which made the games a lot shorter, but was still really fun. It was a normal ten-week club. New games will be brought next year, and some favorites will be brought back. Come join the fun next year!
Mrs Harmers 9th grade World Civilizations classes were able to experience life in a trench while learning about WWI. Students learned about the Christmas truce, poison gases, and conditions associated with trench warfare!
Friday, April 27 was the Disney themed school dance! The dance was held in the lunch room, which was decorated by our impressive student council. There was also a costume competition. People had amazing costumes including Rapunzel, Bell, a Wizard, Queen Guinevere, and even some interesting background characters! It was well attended and everyone looked like they were having fun. There were plenty of beautiful decorations like silhouettes of Disney characters. The music ranged from Disney music to the Cupid Shuffle. In a competition set up by the DJ, we found out that the girls choice dances were more crowded than the boys choice. What a great way to end the year! Thanks, Student Council!
