Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa!
Or if you don’t celebrate, Happy Winter Break!
Woo hoo! Three weeks of relaxation and chilling. We all need it. Despite the fact that our last break was only three weeks ago, I still need a brain break.
I’m also really excited for this upcoming New Year as well, 2022! Yes! I’m not a ‘big goal oriented’ person, I may seem like it but I certainly am not able to keep track of those goals. I do try but the whole ‘Resolutions’ thing just doesn’t suit me, I’m pretty sure plenty of Middle Schoolers get what I mean.
(Yeah, I see you.)
But this year has certainly been eventful, not as eventful as 2020 but it was still eventful. We got a new president, there’s a new variant happening in the UK currently and kids ages 5-11 are able to receive the Covid-19 vaccine. So some ups and downs but we made it!
I don’t have much to say about the upcoming year, I don’t want to get my hopes up too high. I’ve learned about having too high expectations in 2020 and I will not repeat that mistake again. I’ll simply just wish for the best. As well as hope and pray for a better year, who knows, maybe in 2022 will have its unforgettable memories as well.
As always, take care and have a splendid Winter Break! Be sure to keep up with your Spirit Day Calendars, only two more days until break!
This Wednesday, 8th grade had their first park day of the year! It was a time to relax and celebrate all the hard work done this past trimester with friends and teachers. It was a nice day to be out in the park and everyone seemed to have a good time. There were rumors of a fight, but thankfully nothing happened. Personally, my favorite part was being able to forget about the stress of school and play volleyball with my friends. I wanted to know what you guys thought of park day and here is what you said. Camila Gonzalez said, ”My favorite part was seeing everyone being nice to each other, and everyone coming together to play Football and Volleyball.” Leila Ku said, ”I liked eating yummy food and being outside.” Now I want to know what your favorite part of park day was, and what you did?
Okay, so like… Middle School sucks. Sure, you get to see your friends and hang out with them but other than that… It sucks. Like it genuinely does.
The food, assignments, teachers (no offense) and drama… Everything about Middle School just screams torture. So this week (and in the following weeks ahead), I’ve decided to create a short series of guides on how to Survive Middle School.
There were multiple requests to write about the food and water in our school. In which I’ve agreed to write about. Many people have complained about the water and currently, Mrs Avina's Ecology class is working to see if the water is purified and clean. I haven’t used fountain water often due to the hypothesis that the water here may not be clean. Most of the time I’ll bring my own bottled water.
As for the cafeteria food I haven’t even gone in the lunch line at ALL this year because of my trauma from the past years. In my opinion, I’ve never enjoyed the cafeteria food. Sometimes the food isn’t fully warmed up, leaving cold icy parts in the food. Other times my macaroni would be hard and I wouldn’t be able to eat it without my teeth aching. I think many of you students would agree with my experiences.
It’s a difficult topic to side on though, if I’m being honest. The topic seems way too far-fetched considering the fact that it’s hard to believe that our school would give unclean water and uncooked food.
Our school is considered a ‘top school’ or a well-known one for having a great reputation. But it’s not healthy for students to be given horrid food and learn as well. If students can’t have food that is healthy or pleasing, how do you expect us to learn and do well in our studies?
How do they expect us to be on top if we can’t even have simple needs?
What do you think about this topic and what is your opinion on it?

Welcome back! I hope everyone had an exciting Thanksgiving break and got to spend time with their family. While enjoying my Thanksgiving break I continued to see different interesting instagrams made by CVC students. Some include a ships account, feet account, and a couple other ones. The students behind those pages had to talk to the principal this morning and receive a punishment. In my personal opinion, I thought the pages were funny and didn’t harm anyone. At the same time I understand why the school would not be a fan of these pages. So I want to know, do you think the Instagram pages are harmful, and what type of consequences should they face? Have a great weekend!
