Getting Ready For Middle School by Kaitie
In school, it is pretty easy to become unorganized and messy throughout the year. Even in elementary school, people lose most of their important items due to being unorganized. So, how could it possibly be easier in middle school? If you are in 6th grade and you are asking this question or you lose your things easily, this might help you.
-Try to have separate notebooks and binders for each class.
*If you tend to get in a hurry, try to have your notebooks in different colors.
-Make sure you have extra pencils and paper in your notebooks/binders.
-Have a planner to put your homework assignments and projects with their due dates.
-Make sure that you have the usual school supplies such as paper, pencils, journals, erasers, etc.
-Lastly, make sure that you have your name on EVERYTHING you bring to school, in case you lose something.
I also suggest that you make sure that your locker is neat as well. This can have a great impact on your success in middle school.
-If you can, get a shelf for your locker. It helps a lot.
-Get a locker dry erase board or something to write down reminders, such as your class schedules and anything else you need to remember.
-Make your locker organized with different colored notebooks and binders so that you can easily grab your things that you need and get back to class without having to worry about forgetting something.
If you are in the honors English class, you WILL have summer reading and it is mandatory. You will have projects and group discussions on the book.
The Uglies- Scott Westerfield

Teen Activism By: Shy-Ann
Hello Maverick friends and family! The sixth grade class has put together a group project about being a Teen Activist. To be an Activist means that you want to make a change in your community. To be a Teen Activist means to participate with a group of young students who want to see change. My group topic is about the attitude of adult cancer patients. We want to go volunteer our time to play games or do arts and crafts to let them know we haven't forgotten about them.
Thanks for reading this and if you want to know more then click the link below and read about a young teen activist. Remember it takes one person to make a change!

3rd-5th Grades Field Day by Nives
The annual 3rd-5th Grades Field Day is scheduled for May 13th (May 14th Rain Day) and promises to be great fun for all involved. Students will test their skills and challenge their classmates during exciting events, such as Frisbee Golf, Tug-o-war, Javelin, Cone Sweep, and the 25-yard Dash. Stations will be set up throughout the gym, playground, and sports fields. Activities are planned throughout the day, including seven morning activities and four afternoon activities. Additionally, participants can look forward to a special guest operating one of the stations, as well as a water event and a special indoor activity!
The PTA has dedicated a lot of planning, hard work, and special touches. They include popsicles, a shaved ice station, and ribbons for the boys and girls winners of each class for the javelin and the 25-yard dash events, to make field day fun and enjoyable for everyone. As you make your way through the various stations and enjoy the festivities, you will notice 4-5 PTA volunteers at each station helping to make it successful. Be sure to take a moment and thank them for their time and efforts to give you a special day outside of the classroom!
Have a great time and Go Mavericks!
