RARE HAIR BY JULIA TURINO We took two polls based on hairstyles. One for boys and one for girls. First, we polled the girls and asked them, “Curly or straight?” The results were close at first, but then straight came through in the finish with almost double the votes. The final results tallied at 63-34, with straight hair as the winner. Then we interviewed the boys about their choice between spiked hair or hair down. Almost the exact same results happened. Down hair almost doubled spiked hair with a final score of 63-37, down hair taking the crown. Here are some comments that we got: “Curly hair just looks better.” - Morgan Lee “[Curly hair is] awesome.” - Ana Compabosso

HOW MANY?

This month for our “How Many?” segment, we decided to try to see how many people we could cram onto a school bench/table. How many people can you fit on a school bench? Let’s find out! After about 2 minutes of cramming people on to one bench, we finally got the answer we were looking for! From left to right we got 14 people to fit! Do you think that you can beat that record? Well, send in your name and lunch hour to hmstelevision@gmail.com and we will meet you outside after your lunch and see if you got the skill to beat the number of people on a bench at one time!

FRAGILE

By: Lily Fuller I looked down from the window, seeing the busy street consisting of people, bikes, and cars. Only seeing, but never touching. Placing my fingers on the cold glass of the window, I asked to myself, "What... are people...like?" I could never speak for very long; as long as I could ever remember, I have been alone in this house, which hasn't been for very long. I had been in a coma for all my life due to something

That’s one cool mule. (Actually, it’s a donkey, but you get my point.)

that happened to me when I was a mere baby. Hello everyone!

I am a human with no name, my age is thirteen, or so my parents have told me, but I'm not quite sure. Pulling away from the window, I daintily danced across the floor. "No more," I whispered. "No more alone. I will be free." All kinds of fantasies started to waltz inside of my head. "What do other people sound like? What smells will be waiting for me outside of this little house?" I thought. I dashed through the hallway into my room, my silk dress flowing behind me. After changing into something more appropriate for going out, I looked at my reflection from the mirror and froze. For a second, my image didn’t look like myself at all. As quickly as I could, I ran away and descended before the door while looking at its shiny knob, waiting to be opened to explore the many possibilities outside of this dwelling. It had been locked so many times before, but last week, Mom forgot to lock it for once. I took in a sharp breath and put my hand on the handle; it felt cool. I slowly twisted it to the left and flung it open.

CHOOSING A THEATER CAMP Valley teen Katie Czajkowski (13) knows a lot about going to theater camp. She just completed her third summer of theater camps with Childsplay and her first summer of theater camp at Phoenix Theatre, where she favors one week camps with a musical theater theme. Think “Into the Woods,” “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown,” “Grease,” “Guys and Dolls” and more.

I saw Czajkowski perform recently and was struck by not only her acting, but her vocals as well—though she’s only recently started acting and vocal training with a Valley studio called Voices.

ask her for tips on choosing a theater camp.

Czajkowski tells me she hopes to perform for a living one day and I haven’t any doubt she’s got what it takes. Knowing that registration is already open for several fall theater camps, I decided to
