What did you pick?

As some of you know, on Friday, January 7th we turned in choice slips on what we wanted to do next year in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. Well, depending on what you like and what you choose, you could be in the right place. Some electives can only be chosen when you are in 7th or 8th grade like athletics or yearbook and campus news. Also, Pre-AP Science and History can only be chosen in 8th grade. Some electives, like Pre-AP require a teacher signature. What have you chosen? Did you make sure to put your electives in the order that you want them?

Here will be a picture of the form that you fill to join campus news

“The electives I have chosen are strings and digital connections,” says Sylvia Garcia 6th grade.

“My electives are AVID and Spanish” says Ayesha Kishwar 7th grade.

Science Fair

Here at Garner Middle School, the 8th graders have been hard at work since January for the science fair. Eighth graders are coming up with a suitable project that has a testable hypothesis so we know it’s possible, and then they go in-depth with their projects starting with loads of Internet searching and writing their research papers, writing down their procedures, materials needed, and hypothesis.

Eighth grader Kristian Zeaul says “The project takes a long time but it’s interesting and you have to keep up with your work or you’ll fall behind. The project I’m doing is what ball goes further when you’re batting in a sport like baseball or softball.”

Luke Bartels, another 8th gradeEducation at its finestr, says, “I wish that the project wasn’t mandatory because while I don’t really find it difficult, it’s extremely time consuming. My project is how high balls bounce on different surfaces.”

Our 8th grade Science teacher, Mrs.Travera, says, “I know it seems like a lot of work but it’s acceptable if you do it step by step. I do have high expectations for my students, mainly to get their work in on time, but what I really hope for is a project that’s original.

Finally, we learned that the science fair project should be a quite the sight to see with everyone’s ideas and inventions.

Who’s your Valentine?

Have you been waiting for Valentines Day well, wait no longer. Yes Valentine’s Day is finally here. “ I can’t wait to get all my friends carnations in the cafeteria!” says Kristy Beers(7). People just love the gift of being friends or love. “My Valentine is Richard,” says Lea Zeniga (7) but  some people don’t like Valentine’s Day like Mrs. Puricelli (7th Reading) she said, “I think Valentine’s is overrated because they just made up a holiday so can spend your money on chocolate, which, did  you notice, gets more expensive.   Almost up to $5.00 for a bag of M&Ms! That’s why I’m against it.” So if you either a Valentines or not just know that you friends and family love you. Happy Valentines Day Garner Yearlings!
