"As we got of the bus to the Great Adventure we all noticed the towering green ride. It was the ride all us were waiting to go on....Kingda Ka. Though we were magnetized towards the huge roller coaster we walked to the state forum in the Olympia Stadium. We heard many awards being called such as the most charitable school and the school with the most community service. Finally the BRMS students heard our school being called for pledging $1000 to the state student council. Finally we were allowed to rush to the park. Most of the student council members all went to Kingda Ka and unfortunately noticed that it was closed and would be open in two hours. During that time my friends and I went on some other rides like El Toro and Nitro, experiencing the thrill of roller coasters.
It was finally time to go back to check out Kingda Ka. IT WAS OPEN! We rushed in to the line and fortunately got seated on the second ride. We waited as we got bursted up into the sky and then we felt the drop.
We rushed down screaming our heads off. My cheeks we flattened by the speed of our car, and my whole face was numb. I watched as the person in front of me slowly held up her hands, and I did the same. Th excitement entered my body and let me experience the totality of the ride. Slowly we came to a stop, and got out of our cars.
For the rest of the days none of the rides were as fun and felt boring, but it felt good to overcome the highest roller coaster in the world."
As we have heard from Rahul Ramanathan the Kingda Ka was indeed the best ride ever. Now lets see who up for the challenge next year.
In the middle of seventh grade is when each student finds their cliques. One of the bigger friend circles was the 7B "E" class. In this team there were many people, with diversity from Hillside school to Eisenhower school and kids from different school districts as well.
In the seven B team a student named Rahul suddenly he did something out of the blue. Right when the teacher made joke he slapped his knee and said "KNEE-SLAPPER". This was something new to the whole class. They did not know what a knee-slapper was. So once Rahul explained the idea behind "Knee-slapper", everyone duplicated his act when they heard a joke. This eventually became an instinct to everyone.
Though this is such an ordinary memory, what makes this joke do special is that it it has not completely dissipated. Once in a while a kid will "Knee-slap" in team eight E if the joke is really funny.

Ms. Knapp's classes had around 5 current events this year ranging from many different topics, like human environment interactions to free choice. Current events overall were brief explanations of recent news. Also on the side the students write a write-up about the article. This helps the teacher to understand that the student knows about their article and subject. Ms. Knapp creates a wonderful environment to publicly speak in front of 2o or more students.
In the beginning of the school, when the students heard about current events they were not excited. Over the year as the currents events continued the students understood the importance of the current events. From the mouth of Rahul Ramanathan, "Current events helped me a lot. Not only did my public speaking get better, but also I learnt about news making it easy for me to make conversations with new people."
Due to Ms. Knapp's, the students in Team 8E have infinitely improved their overall knowledge. They all thank her and are so happy that they forced them to do current events. It created an amazing space for people to be educated in a new way.
Portable School Bell
This new watch is a portable school bell right on your wrist. It is a excellent balance to help one student during their school day. All one does is input the time of each period in the watch. Then you set a 3, 5, or 7 minute alarm before each bell rings, to alert the student to pack up. The watch will help you keep time as well.It comes in analog or digital form in a variety of colors including blue, green, brown, yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, or black. The wrist band also comes in a leather or rubber band. All this creates the best compatible watch and bell.

Firstly, the PARCC test is on the computer. Though indeed we are in the "Technology Age", this creates an uncomfortable setting for some students who are not good at typing. During the field tests people did not like the laptops, and some according to Rahul Ramanathan an eighth grader wrote strong recommendation letters to the foundation however did not change the format. To fix this problem the PARCC foundation can make a written copy of the exam to solve some students. Another solution to this problem is to bring back the NJASK. Rahul Ramanathan stated after taking the test that, "The NJASk not only created a better environment for students to take exams in, but was easier to write essay, fill in multiple choice...." This shows how strongly students dislike this new examination. Also people disliked it since the test made the students learn about certain things outside of our normal school curriculum. In the geometry curriculum the students last year and the years before did not have to learn trigonometry. On the contrary the students in the geometry classes of the 2014 -2015 curriculum had to learn this new lesson that is normally taught at the high-school pre-calculus level.
These reasons as well as many more from parents of students in the state of Ohio, show how bad the PARCC test is. It should be abolished and taken out of the curriculum. It will make most students and their parents happy, not only creating a studious school, but a happy social, emotional, and physical life for every student.
