Teen Wolf: Season 3…This Might Hurt.

In Season 2, Jackson finally became a werewolf after nearly losing his life, Scott and Allison broke up, Derek Hale recruited Erica and Boyd to his wolf pack, Lydia suffers from chronic hallucinations after being bitten by Peter Hale, and much, much more. If you thought Season 2 was great, then get ready for Season 3! The season premiere will be on June 3rd, just in time to kick off summer. Come prepared with popcorn and tissues, because this season is going to be REAAAAAALLY INTENSE! “I totally can’t wait!” exclaimed Victoria Flores (7). This season, the fandom will be saying goodbye to Jackson, and hello to 5 new cast members. These 5 new cast members will consist of a new alpha pack, that will the Beacon Hills supernatural community apart. The season premiere will be in 11 days, and fans all across the world cannot wait a single second longer!!  Characters will be put to the test, in a tough battle between good and evil. No wonder the trailers say “This might hurt”…

Are You Ready For Summer?

3, 2, 1, SUMMER!

With STAAR testing done and over with, Garner students can barely wait for this glorious time of year to begin. 8th graders are gearing up for high school, 6th graders are preparing to be in the middle of everything, and 7th graders are getting ready to be the new leaders of Garner. But before all this happens, there’s a time period where our skin gets darker, our drinks get colder, and life gets better; otherwise known as summer. Ah yes, summer…whether you like to relax on the beach, go to fun concerts, or just chill at home, there’s not a single doubt that summer is the perfect time to get rid of all the stress from school. No more tests, quizzes, grades, teachers, just summertime fun. Sadly, school isn’t over just yet. We still have approximately 9 days left of school, so don’t give up! Take care of all your missing assignments, get your grades up, and keep doing well in your classes so you won’t have to worry about summer school. (Because that’s no fun!) When asked what her plans were for the summer, Catherine Hittson (7) explained “I plan on going to Warped Tour, it’s going to be awesome!” So whatever you’re going to do during the summer, stay safe, have fun, and remember: don’t give up yet!

An Evening With Strings

Picture taken from http://www.neisd.net/fa/Fine%20Arts%20Annual%20Events/An-Evening-With-Strings-Orchestra.htm

Evening with Strings is an annual music event that brings together 3,800 students from fifth grade schools, middle school orchestras and combined NEISD senior orchestras for three nights of awesome music on April 8, 9 and 10.  On April 8th, the Johnson, Roosevelt, and MacArthur clusters (which included Garner) performed. On April 9th, the Churchill and Lee clusters performed, and on April 10th, the Madison and Reagan clusters performed. All performances were at 7:00 P.M. in the Blossom Athletic Center. When asked how she felt about being at this fun event, Felicity Zorola (7) replied “The experience of Evening With Strings for me was fascinating. It always has been since I’ve sat in the stands and watched my brother play, till now”. Preparation for this event included several before and after school rehearsals, and lots of practice at home. Overall, the Garner orchestra students did a fantastic job performing “Rhumbolero” along with “Danse Bachannale” with the MacArthur orchestra. Great job orch dorks, and keep up the fabulous work!
