Father Daughter Dance

By: Ariel and Kourtney

This year’s Father Daughter Dance was held on April 20th. The theme was An Evening in Paris. All daughters in Preschool through 8th grade could attend the dance. It was held in the Fellowship Hall.  Mr. Cheray our band teacher was our DJ for the dance. The decorations included Eiffel Towers, a photo booth, and a snack table with macrons and cupcakes. Some of the girls wore fancy dresses while others dressed casually. Dr. Davis even wore a hot pink suit with shorts. Mr. Cheray played slow dance songs as well as modern pop songs. It was definitel a fun evening to spend with our fathers.

Dear Tweedles,

I just failed a science test and now my grade is biting the dust.

Sincerely My Parents are Going to Kill MeImage result for grade F minus

Dear My Parents are Going to Kill Me,

Try asking your teacher for extra credit and always try to do your best on your assignments. Remember 1st Peter 5:7 says, “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”

Sincerely Tweedledee

Convince your parents that science isn’t needed because after all who uses science anyway.

Dear Tweedle twins,

My dog is eating all of my clothes and homework, which is great because I don’t have to do my homework, but I don’t feel safe going out of house anymore, especially in my patched up jeans and holey t-shirt. What should I do?

Sincerely, Fashion Problems

Dear Fashion Problems,

Take your dog to obedience classes or put away your things better where your dog can’t get them. Also you may want some new clothes just in case.Image result for cartoon dog with homework

At your service, Tweedledee

Hey Fashion Problems,

Maybe you could just get a new fashion sense because apparently he doesn’t like yours. You could also just send your dog to school instead of you, or wait for the homework to pass.

Talk to you later, Tweedledumb

Dear Tweedledee and Tweedledumb,

I’m losing all of my soccer games, and my team isn’t doing so well. What should I do?

Sincerely, Lucy A. Game

Dear Lucy,

Maybe your team could practice harder or more frequently. You also could talk with your coach or team -mates to improve team chemistry. Just do your best and play your heart out.Image result for cardboard goalie

Yours truly, Tweedledee

Dear Lucy,

Kidnap the goalie and put up a cardboard replacement, and then you can score all you want.

8th Grade Class Trip

8th Grade Class Trip

By: Adrienne and Anna

 

The 8th graders recently went on a class trip to Washington D.C. They arrived on April 9th and left on the 14th. The 8th graders were lucky and got to see the beautiful cherry blossoms. The trees were dressed in a beautiful pink color, and the smell was amazing. They visited the National Air and Space Museum, the National Zoo, the National Archives, the Museum of the Bible, the Holocaust Museum,and the Museum of National American History. They also visited a variety of American monuments and memorials. We asked a few 8th graders what their favorite part of the trip was. Adrienne and Rachel said that they loved the Museum of the Bible. Jeffrey said that his favorite thing was the Batmobile at the National Archives and Dylan said his favorite thing was the Lincoln Memorial. The 8th graders walked the equivalent of two marathons to these destinations. The eighth graders had an amazing time and they made many special memories there.

Middle School Advice

Middle School Advice

By: Ariel and Kourtney

 

Dear 5th Graders,

Here are some important tips for surviving middle school and making the teachers love you.

To get on Mrs. Vanwey’s good side – Do NOT compare the Hobbit book with the movie. DO turn your work in on time and in your correct box. Make sure you NEVER forget your name on any paper or assignment!

 

To make Mr. Kelly love you – Do NOT say jokes at the wrong time. DO follow directions all the time but specifically while you’re doing lab experiments. Heads up, NEVER mess with another man’s drawers(as in lab drawers)!

 

To make Mr. Wolgast laugh – Do NOT talk when he’s talking or when he gives you an assignment. DO remember your gym uniform. And NEVER bring your backpack to class.

 

Just a warning,

Love the 7th and 8th grade classes
