Brandon Lacour received a certificate of excellence from Senator Van de Putte this week. Brandon recently spoke at the American Lung Association’s Dinner for the 2014 Asthma-Friendly School Initiative that honored Garner in receiving a Gold Champion Award.
Last week on October 16, 2014, Garner Middle Schools’ very own 7th grade volleyball girls played against Jackson Middle School here at Garner.
Go team and B team won their games, but sadly A team lost.
Avery Dullnig (7) who’s in Go team said “I was scared I wasn’t going to make the ball over the net, and that I was going to let my team down.”
Katya Rodriguez (7) said “It felt really awesome to win a game.
The Jaguars were very tough to beat I’ve heard. Thank goodness our ladies could take it.
The next volleyball game will be held here at Garner Middle School. We will be going against Driscoll Middle school. Go team girls will play at 4:30 p.m., B team girls will play at 5:30 p.m., and A team girls will play at 6:30 p.m.
Good luck ladies! Hope to see everyone there!
The dance club finally had a second meeting Monday, October 20, 2014. The dance club meets twice a month on Mondays in the choir room. The reason Garner Middle School has a dance club is because Ms. Flemming wants anyone who is interested to learn how to dance to many types of genres. Some of the genres are: Bollywood, hip hop, jazz, and country. The following people are the official members of dance club: Ashley Alverez (6), Makayla Arredondo (6), Caitlyn Auliveld (6), Tera Contreras (6), Addison Thompson (6), Varielica Rhymes (6), Faith Anderson (7), Janelle Bankston (7), Dejahnea Barret (7), Caeley Brown (7), Corbin Cunningham (7), Jennifer Flores (7), Chanel Hanson (7), Jessica Harden (7), Niavaunii Ledezma (7), and Alyce Thinner (7).
On Monday the dance club did four dances, all the same genre, the genre was a hip hop workout mix. Something that stands out is that the majority of the students are extremely flexible. Garner’s Dance Club is a great way to learn different types of dances; while having fun for your friends. Dance club may be small, but the members have fun and that is what matters.
