Visit to Health Museum

Page 2 of 11 May 10, 2013

7th Grade visits the Health Museum in Houston 7th graders are studying the Human Body in Coach Greeness’ health class. To make it a little more hands-on, we took the students to the Health Museum of Houston. The museum gave students an opportunity to walk through parts of the body and see how each system works. The following is a summary of the trip written by Miles Slater and Bree Allsup. On May 6th, we went on a field trip to the Health Museum in Houston. We left at 6am. The first thing we did was learn about DNA and RNA. We made a key chain model of DNA. Mine turned out to be pretty nice. Next, we went into a 4-D movie to watch The Planet in You. This movie showed what lives in you and the bugs that live on you. It showed how bacteria and bed bugs eat at your dead skin. It also showed how our blood clots when we are injured. Lastly, we went to a room filled with lots of cool stuff and models of the body. We did a scavenger hunt to learn different things about our bodies. We walked through the brain and the mouth, we saw how the skeletal system works while we rode the bike, and we also saw the inside of our body through a scanner machine. The exhibit with all of the computers showed us how we might look in the future, how tall we might be, what we would look like if we changed certain characteristics, and there was one machine that showed our characteristics compared to others in the museum. Overall, the trip was great. I loved all of the hands- on exhibits. The movie was gross, but it was cool to learn what is happening in your body. The pictures were taken by Coach Smith.

SFA Book Club

Page 3 of 11 May 10, 2013

Students in Mr. Garcia’s 6.2 SFA class went all out in their presentations of biography bookreports. Students used technology such as Google Apps, Power Point, You Tube and other resources to present and enhance their reports. Other students created excellent visual aids such as collages and posters. Martin Luther King Jr., Anne Frank, Thomas Edison, Miley Cyrus and the Beatles are just a few of the biographies that they worked very hard on. Excellent Job!

Everyone is invited to join the Stacey Bands and Choir as they perform their annual Spring Concert on Thursday, May 23. The concert begins at 6:30 pm in the Elementary Gym.

By: Jaazmyne Stringer, Senior

The 2013 Stacey Prom was held at Arnold Hall on Saturday, May 4th , and it was a very successful event! The theme was “Paris under the Stars”, which made the students’ night even more magical. The Junior class decided to move the location this year from the high school cafeteria to Arnold Hall to make the night memorable for this year’s seniors. Junior class sponsors Mrs. Cashion and Mrs. Sanchez, along with help from Stacey teachers, staff, and the junior class prom committee, put in many hours of preparation making arrangements, building the sets, printing tickets, and transporting everything over to the hall.

Communication

Page 7 of 11 May 10, 2013

Communication Disorders Do Not Discriminate Millions of Americans have a communication or swallowing disorder. These disorders affect people of all ages, from all walks of life. For them, simple thoughts like “Thank you” and “I love you” may be impossible to convey. If you are concerned that a disorder is affecting your education, professional life, or personal relationships, consult a speech-language pathologist.
