Pep Rally! By Rishi Banerjee

The pep rally!

The results...

Before the Park School tournaments for the 6th and Varsity teams the Middle and Upper division wanted to wish them good luck for there favorite team.... Park!

Let’s just say that Park did really well! The Girls varsity won it all while the 6the grade boys came in 6th in Fessenden. Boys Varsity and girls field hockey were here but just fell short of winning. All round Park did really well!

The pep rally was held under the big oak. With broken banners, high fives, green confetti, painted faces, and the roaring chant of P.... A......R.....K rang through that space as we all danced in joy!

Special thanks to Mr. Little for all the effort he has put a great tournament this year!

Review: Alex Rider- The Alex Rider series is terrific. In

Stormbreaker Alex Rider is met by countless of readers. He has a housekeeper Jack(ie) and never knew his parents. He lives with his Uncle Ian, who keeps him well-educated. The 14 year old knows countless of languages and he is beyond belts in karate. One day Uncle Ian mysteriously dies in a car accident and the school-boy’s future is left to fate. Alex visits the junk yard and the small round bullet-holes in the driver’s side of a familiar car can only confirm his suspicions. He is confused, ever more so when he meets M16, the British Intelligence. He is recruited and thrust into a spy world. After training he goes on his first mission, Stormbreaker! To find the rest, read the book. Trust me and put it on hold if you ever want to get it. The series: Stormbreaker Snakehead Skeleton Key Crocodile Tears Eagle Strike Scorpia Rising Scorpia Ark Angel
