The sixth grade was given a great opportunity: to participate in a Sportacular! Each of the classes were to create a team name and pick a color. Mrs. Englehart’s class was the Stud McMuffins and their color was green. Miss. Fox’s class was red and their name was the Foxy Squad, Mrs. Gornowski’s class wore blue and called themselves the Gornadoes. Mrs. Busarello’s class wore purple and were the B-Power. Mrs. Meehan was the Lemonheads and wore yellow. We did a relay race with a plastic egg on a spoon, played four corners, and did a couple rounds of dodge ball. They also participated in bind basketball, and tug-of-war. The Gornadoes came out on top, and the Lemonheads and the Foxy Squad tied for second. Then, B-Power came in third place. Congratulations to the winners, and thank you for participating!
The Misfits is a book by James Howe about a group of kids helping their friend running for student council. They start a political party to help the running and make an impact in their lives and others. The main characters have different personality traits that bring them together. In book club, students and parents come together to talk about the mature themes and topics presented in the book.
“I liked the book club, it was really fun,” Maeve said.
A main point that everyone enjoyed was the snacks. People enjoyed the snacks while chatting about the book before the actual discussion started. This week the sixth grade will be finishing up the book, hopefully there will be some twists, like Jolin (Joe+Colin). The book has been a growing experience for many students. Some students were inspired to create an Instagram account about anti-bullying.
“I was tired of hearing people calling others gay and using the word as an insult. It was getting annoying,” one of the students had said.
This book has made an impact on many students here at Mansion Ave.
