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!

Warped Tour 2013: Are You Ready?

With summer right around the corner, so is Warped Tour. And with all the tests, quizzes, and overall school stress that we students get, summer just seems to be looking further and further away! But for several Garner students, Warped Tour is like a ray of light amidst pure darkness. Every year, the Vans Warped Tour tours around the U.S. playing for thousands of eager fans. By looking at this year’s line-up, Warped Tour 2013 is going to be absolutely amazing!

When asked what band they’re excited to see, Catherine Hittson (7) said “I’m really excited about Warped in general, and I can’t wait to see Memphis May Fire” and Saphire Mendez (8) said,“I’m looking forward to seeing Black Veil Brides.”

Band announcements began on December 7th during the show Warped Roadies on Fuse. Band announcements will continue every Friday until the kick-off party on March 28, 2013. Bands playing this year will include Black Veil Brides, August Burns Red, Blessthefall, Bring Me The Horizon, Chiodos, Memphis May Fire, Never Shout Never, Sleeping With Sirens, We Came As Romans, I See Stars, Like Moths to Flames, Woe, Is Me and many, MANY more. Warped Tour will come to San Antonio on August 3, 2013 so make sure to buy your tickets soon, before they sell out!
