So far this year we have posted quite a variety of articles and others really just repetitive but, there is one we can stand up and say, “That is amazing.” Here today, we are going over my favorite article and why it is so. Oh my god what? He is going to use his opinion, no way. This is in fact true; it is no longer about what the others think but, it is now me, so let’s get to it.

My favorite article this year woDSCN0290uld have to be about my budget PC which was very useful I feel, towards the large gaming community the dwells within Garner Middle school. I made this to show an amazing budget PC that would now cost about the same as a rip off console. This was a build that I personally came up with, and even used to build my own computer.

I would like to see more articles next year about topics that can benefit the well being of other students. I hope the school can improve on the technology that the school currently puts up with.

Lights, Camera, Action

 

Known for seeming difficult in the movies, acting is a big career that is pursued by the masses. Below those professional levels of acting though, are younger people that want to be “The next big thing.”

 

Here at Garner, our Eighth, Seventh, and Sixth graders just finished up UIL Speech competition where they go to a school that has been prepared for competition and the judges, then the students wait until their type of act is ready to be judged, ranging from duets to poetry.

 

Eighth grader Sarah Clamp has performed in several performances, including The Hobbit, Once Upon a Mattress, and other plays. Also she has been in UIL to compete for the trophy.

 

“I love acting and it is definitely a career I would pursue,” said Sarah.” I find UIL Speech Competition fun because it is fun to watch others do what you love to do. I would pursue acting overall because, you get to be someone or thing that you are not, and you are having fun at the same time.”

 

She ended by saying, “I started acting because I thought it would be fun to perform in front of others, and I have ever sense I was six.”

 

Eighth grader Colette Newton loves acting and was in a UIL One Act Play for a play called The Diviners.”I love acting because I feel like I am my own person when I act,” said Colette.

 

”I found that UIL can be stressful but everybody eventually puts their heads together and gets work done. I do recommend competing, that is, if you can handle it,” she answered.

 

“I started acting because my sister introduced me to it, and then I met Mrs. Frazier and sense then, acting has been my passion,” she ended.

 

Garner is putting on Grease, a musical on May 14 at TIME. Talk more about it. Sarah Clamp, Colette Newton, Ricardo Moreno, Marcus Caldera and other people.

Sweepstakes

This year, Garner Middle School Choir and Orchestra has earned their UIL sweepstakes. For the Orchestra, they earned a superior rating of all 1’s for their musical talent, and ability to handle their instruments well. The Choir students also scored all 1’s for UIL, also earning them UIL sweepstakes.

Evan Fowler (8) said, “I think that me and the rest of the Orchestra group did well for getting all 1’s, and I feel proud of the kids that are in orchestra with me. I can say that all the practice and hard work really paid off, and it showed with the score we achieved.”

Eighth grader, Colette Newton says, “I feel that we did great yet, practice played a big role in this for the whole group and it really does help a lot. I think the whole team did great.”

Because these teams have won sweepstakes, their teachers might congratulate them for their hard work with something maybe both teams will have, or they might get something better. Good job Choir and Orchestra.
