Week of April 9-13th, 2018

We all came back to school on Monday, not wanting to be there. After spring break we were tired and grumpy, some of us were jet-lagged, and there were a lot of people absent. But that’s beside the point. Monday was normal for the most part. Science was pretty boring if I remember correctly and in Religion we had our weekly class meeting. We talked about Spring Break, and how zits were the worst part of being a pre-teen. Mrs. Pierson also showed us a bunch of pictures from her adventure to New York. In Social Studies we started doing an activity about the Han Dynasty which was not boring, and kinda fun. We had Math without Mrs. Hawk and started our essay in ELA. At the end of the day, Mrs. Pierson let us watch Marcel the Shell with shoes on two, which was funny. We made it through Monday :|.
On Tuesday more people came back (some later in the day), and we had yet another normal and uneventful day. Science was really fun. We did a lab about mutations, and we acted like squirrels burying our nuts for the winter. In PE we started our fitness test and we had to run for five minutes to practice for the mile on Friday :|. We continued our Social Studies activity, had Math without Mrs. Hawk, worked on our essay draft in ELA, and finished our day with Marcel the Shell with shoes on three.
When we got to school on Wednesday, I’m pretty sure we were up to our full attendance (except for Sidney who came later in the day). In Art, we did these easter egg things called pysanky eggs, which are cool. In Science, we did a packet that went with the lab from Tuesday, and we got done early so we played a mutation hunting game. We finished our essay drafts and started revising. We had yet another Mrs. Hawkless Math and finished the day at 2 :).
Thursday was not so normal. We did an activity in Science that involved m&m’s, red hots, math, and teamwork. My group did it wrong the first time so we had to restart :(. We didn’t have PE so we wrote stories about this little girl that was duct taped to a wall with her duck. Conrad’s story was super funny and it said: “then your boy Qin Shi Huangdi came in and took Vimeo to China and they dabbed happily ever after.” Mrs. Denniston also came in because she was not there on Friday morning. Then, we finished our Social Studies activity and got some extra time to work on stuff. OLL hot lunch was tacos. In Math, we were so giddy and restless that Mrs. Boone just gave up on most of us. We finished the day with more essay work.
Friday started like Monday, we didn’t want to be there because we were all dreading the mile. We didn’t have mass, so we finished our essays, and we learned about prophets in Religion. We reviewed for our Social Studies test on Monday. Then we began our walk down to the track after lunch. After about an hour of waiting in the cold rainy weather, we finally got to run. I would like to give a special congratulations to Hansey because he ran a very fast personal best at 6:18 ;). At seven o’clock the dance started. It was OLL’s only dance of the year and the eight grade invited us to raise more money for their graduation dinner. At the end, I was really tired, but I had a really great time.
The weekend was pretty busy for me at least. On Saturday the girls had a Volleyball game against ASB, which we won. I know that the boys beat St. Mark which is very exciting that they won, but I don’t know which day that was on. The other busy part of my weekend was the Washington Cup. I had a total of three games and won all three. This weekend was the qualifying round and I know that me, Hans, Alania, and Paco’s teams advanced to the next stage :).

Fun week, Brooke

Week of March 12-18th, 2018

Week of March 11-18th 2018

This week was pretty crazy we started the week with dress rehearsals for the play. Then Tuesday came and it was pretty normal, except that we had someone come in at P.E. to teach us salsa dancing. Wednesday was crazy we started with Pi day. During Pi day we would all go to our families and play math games and eat pie, not the number Pi, the food pie. After that, we went to a 17-minute prayer service for the 17 lives lost in the Florida shooting. Finally, we did half of the play for the rest of the school but we cut out the Stampede because we didn’t want to kill Mufasa in front of the kids.

For anyone NOT in the play, Thursday was normal just fine but for the kids that ARE it was INSANE. We got out of school and had around one and a half hours until we had to get to the opening night of the play and we didn’t get home till about 9:30. My favorite part of the play was "They Live in You." Then from Friday-Sunday were pretty much the same except we didn’t have school. YAAAAAAY. So we actually got time at home. Then if you were on the boy’s volleyball team you had to get up on Saturday to go to a volleyball game.

Week of March 5th-9th, 2018

This week was a normal and fun week. On Monday we had a normal day which was a nice way to start off the week. On Tuesday we had a quiz in math and we had pictures taken in P.E. Then on Wednesday we had the usual one-hour dismissal and otherwise, it was a usual day. Next, on Thursday the middle school went to the Seattle Children's Theater to watch a play. The play was about a boy that lived in a Japanese concentration camp during WWll and was called The Journal of Ben Uchida.

After school on Thursday, the people from the play went to practice and that’s when a fire alarm went off! Even the firemen came but the cause was a volleyball hitting a sprinkler in the gym. So everyone was fine. Finally, on Friday we had a fun day because we watched a movie in social studies and a movie in math! On Sunday the girls' volleyball team has a game and we have play practice and will be going through the whole play. Overall this week was fun and mostly easy.

Week of February 26th-March 2nd, 2018

This week was just a normal week. First, Monday was just a normal day. On Tuesday, a speaker from the We organization came, then about half of the class participated in a workshop. At the workshop, we played some games, then we split into two groups to come up with an idea to help two different worldwide problems. On Wednesday, we presented our nervous system disease projects. All of them were really good. Also on Wednesday, we got introduced to Membean. Membean is a vocabulary website that teaches you a lot of vocabulary. To start Thursday, we presented more of our science projects. After that, we were just starting to learn a new dance, when Mrs. Clayton came to our rescue and took everyone in the play to the Multi-Purpose Room to practice for the play. While most of us were in the play, the other part of the class participated in the P.E. Winter Olympics. In Social Studies, we had a test. The rest of Thursday was normal, and the hot lunch was tacos.
On Friday, our 50 point book reports were due. We got to school and had Mass, then Mrs. Pierson gave us no Mass reflection. After that, we had second step/religion and social studies. Then came recess and lunch, but after that, we had no math because the 7th grade and our math teachers went on a field trip. Instead of math, we presented our book reports. I saw a ton of time capsules. After we presented it was time for everyone’s favorite subject: ELA!!! But once again, Mrs. Clayton came to our rescue to take the play people to practice. After that, school was out, but a lot of the class went on the last ski bus trip of the year. Saturday came, and the boys' volleyball team played St. Al/John at 10:00 A.M. We got destroyed the first game, but we won our second game. We started out good, and we won!
You stay classy Mrs. Pierson’s class.

Weeks of February 12-23rd, 2018

Hello friends!! The past two weeks were very exciting. On February 12th we had our Valentines day party which was very fun, thank you to everyone for the sweets/ cards. The day after that we went to St. Vincent De Paul which is always one of the best field trips ever! And it looked like all of us had lots of fun handing out food, but on the way back to school I’m pretty sure most of us were tired out and just wanted to get home and take a nap or eat some sort of candy, perhaps some Nutella even...hehehehehehehehehehehe. Before the whole field trip we went to P.E. and danced to the cupid shuffle, I could tell that most everyone really didn’t want to start dancing AT ALL!! The rest of the week was normal except for the fact that we went to the Ash Wednesday mass which happens to be the same day as Valentine's day. Thursday we went to P.E. and sadly had to dance salsa or something, personally I think dancing on my own was the best part, but I think all of us are looking forward to waltzing,(please note that that was sarcasm).

The next week we only had three days of school. I don’t know if everyone went on a trip... but if you did I hope you had fun! The girl's volleyball team had practice on Tuesday, but there were only six girls there, Oh! and it was snowing very lightly outside. When we got back to school on Wednesday it looked like everyone was tired or didn’t want to be there, and just wanted to go home and eat Nutella...that was probably just me... or was it? BUM BUM BAHHHH. On Thursday we had half a snow day! There wasn’t as much snow as there was on Christmas but still SNOW!!! Lastly, on Friday there wasn’t much. We went to mass and once again didn’t get called up to the altar but I guess that’s ok besides the fact that we’ve never been called up this year but you know it’s fine. And we played a fun game in Second step. Hopefully, you all had a good week like I did!

Week of February 5th-9th, 2018

Hello everyone or yii em hotep as we say in Egypt. We had a very busy
week, this week we had the Egyptian Banquet. The Banquet was a lot of fun.
We got to dress like the Egyptians, wear makeup, and even eat like them.
The food was delicious and the fun part was we got to eat with our hands.
The act-outs where a lot of fun too.

But this weekend was AWESOME because the 6th grade girls got to go to
the Championships and the Playoffs. On Saturday, we played Holy Rosary
and beat them 26-15 or something like that but we played really hard and
agressive. On Sunday we went to the championship. We played another
great game but unfortunately we lost 23-7. We brought home a 2nd place
trophy to add to our TROPHY COLLECTION. But we still have 2 more years
to bring a 1st place trophy home! Hope we have another great week!

Our theme was digital We all dressed up as something from a video game
or from a movie.

On Thursday we had pride wear. But best of all on Friday we had a green and gold day,

bunch of fun! Go, teachers! (Even though I wanted the students to win) Oh, I almost forgot.
