In Language Arts we are reading a book called The Outsiders. It is by S.E Hilton, and is based on a true story that she experienced when she was a teenager. The main characters, Ponyboy, Sodapop, and Darry, belong to a group known as the Greasers, none of which have much money. Their rival gang, the Socs, live on the other side of town and have considerably more money. Throughout the story, Ponyboy discovers that the Greasers and the Socs are not so different.

Only 28 days till the science fair! We've had 70 days to work on our science projects. The type of projects vary a lot. People are doing experiments with worms and and seeing how the weight of a ball effects how high it bounces on a trampoline. There are many creative science fair projects and I can not wait to see all the ineresting projects.

Team SIRIUS students have been in a introspection SST. Students are finding out who they are on the inside. In science students are making puzzle piece and on those pieces they draw big part of their life. When you are in math you create a flower diagram where you put your hobbies, talents, goals and other ideas on your paper about you. Venn diagrams are for LA where you put your strengths in one area and beliefs in the other and then you show their common ground. In social studies you think about how your life is impacted by money, you have eight different categories that you can think about.
