Harvey Survey

I did a survey on how Harvey affected our SMS family. It ended up showing that a lot of people from our school got water in their house. Not many people evacuated before the storm hit. I interviewed a few kids from classes 5th thorough 8th a few teachers, and a couple staff members. Some of the people i interviewed said that they did not get water but their neighbors did. When you drive down the road you can see the devastation from all of the water.

The story of Soccer

By Derian Jones and Mrs. Espiritu

The game of soccer -- more commonly referred to outside the United States as football -- has long been one of the most popular sports in the world. With origins that date back many centuries, soccer is played by young children, college students and professionals. Amateur clubs and weekend warriors add to the passion that swells up every four years for the most-watched sporting event in the world, the World Cup.


Although soccer's international governing body, the International Federation of Association Football, recognizes the birth of the modern game as 1863 in England, the deepest origins go back centuries. The Han Dynasty in the second century B.C. saw the emergence of a game similar to soccer called tsu' chu. Several centuries after that, the Japanese game Kemari began. Kemari was less competitive, with participants passing the ball from one another using their feet, trying to keep it from touching the ground. Much later, a violent town game emerged called mob football in Europe during the Middle Ages.
