5th Grade Party By Adrianna
hairspray at the high school.
The fifth grade had a party. But before the party my mom used my friend Kyenna and me as test monkeys to try out all the activities. During the graduation party my mom broke the 5th graders into groups. I was in a group with Corel, Kyanna, Jakob, Geneva, Regina, Keyira, Nonica and Justine. My group was group 1. We started with a relay race in the hall. Next, we went to the bungee run. I went against Regina and Kyenna. It was awesome! This is how it worked.

Finally, we got to meet the it was between Sara and Annie. Annie won that one. Then we did characters after the show. a jump rope competition. Annie won that one, too. We all took home goody bags. Each bag had twizzlers, starburst, angry bird stickers, a notebook, a free McDonalds Happy Meal coupon and a free medium drink from Sonic. Both 5th grade teachers came to the party. I wonder if other years had a party as fun as this one!
5th Grade Recognition Congratulations to all the 5th graders on reaching the end of your elementary school experience! The ceremony on May 18 was full of laughs and tears and wonderful memories. Mrs. Kamphaus gave wonderful advice to “choose your friends wisely” and “don’t be afraid to try new things” in your new school. Mr. Martinez from Junction City Middle School came to welcome the 5th graders, shaking their hands on the other side of the “bridge.” The 5th grade class gave a gift to the school of a beautiful picture book about Junction City presented to the school by Jakob and Justin. The 5th graders gave the parents a gift of an awesome song “Count on Me.” Finally, the ceremony ended with the slide show. What a terrific job the Maddens did. Between the song and the slide show there was not a dry eye in the place. Afterwards we all enjoyed delicious cake. The parents did a wonderful job with the refreshments and the decorations. Good Luck to you all, you 6th graders! Have a great summer! From the Editor, Paige Sessa
Best Wishes & Good Luck

by Emma, grade 3 3rd grade math has changed its level! Now when you are in third grade you race to make a sundae by learning your multiplication facts from 0 to 12. First you earn a bowl, then a spoon and then a banana. You get one scoop, then two, then three scoops of vanilla ice cream. Last, you can earn the toppings. So, that’s the scoop on this scoop!
day. You will get to do fun activities like watch butterflies grow. You also get to watch movies. You might get to win pennies for patients and a pizza party for your classmates. You also get to see a rodeo. If you listen to the presenters and get the questions right they throw out tee shirts, but you have to remember what they say. You can plant Marigolds for Mother’s day. And you get to do rainbow math with Mrs. Egan.

Ice Cream Sundae by Lily, grade 2
One time my class, Miss Baumgartner’s class, went to the library to learn about cows and milk. We watched a video about how you make milk and ice cream. I learned that you use an electric machine to get milk from cows. Then we ate the ice cream. I had vanilla ice cream and I put chocolatey syrup on it and m&ms. I had a fun day!

Movie Review: Chimpanzee by Karmen, 4th grade
Hello! This review is for the new movie Chimpanzee, a true story of a chimp’s life and survival. The story is about a chimp, named Oscar, who gets lost from his pack. Luckily, another troop leader finds him. The troop leader takes care of him from then on. Chimpanzee is good for science or social studies lessons. It is educational, funny and heartwarming. This movie is rated PG. Well, Bye for now! Kamryn Out!
The Over Nighter
by Marcel, grade 3 Eagle day was called “Fun Fitness” this year and it was about all the fun things you can do to get exercise. Here are some of the fun things we did: we did basketball with Mr. James, we did baseball with Mrs. Boller and we did football with Miss Baumgartner. We did face painting. I got an eagle beak and red, white and blue stripes on my face. We did chalk drawing with Mrs. Poppe. I drew some people. We got really wet with Mrs. Egan! At the end of the day we had pop ice. It was the best day I ever had! The Halloween Celebration
On March 30, 2012 we had an Overnighter at Eisenhower. We danced, played games, and watched a play by the teachers about staying away from drugs. The kids also had to follow clues to find the missing Ooops and Daisy pictures. We also met some K State football players who

The Halloween parade of characters in the gym was fun! There were lots of cool costumes and some were scarrry! There were ghosts, princesses, witches, even pop stars. I think everyone had a good costume. I give everyone a “thumbs up.”
Afterwards we went to our classrooms and had an “afterparty.” I hope all the students had fun at their parties!

RAINBOW By MARCEL, grade 3 Talk about yourself and your staff. Talk perhaps about specials, when and how much, that you offer. Talk about solutions or tips in your specific field. Talk about some of the reasons why some of your services are important. You may include games or comics or puzzles if you so choose, as it gives everyone a reason to keep or use the newspaper longer. These can be very popular and enjoyed. Overall, just keep it simple. Let your customers enjoy your newspaper without working hard to do so.
