Story Of The Week // By: Natalie Cebulko //
I've heard about her upcoming adventure story called The Hopps.
It's about sisters with all different personalities, set on adventures. These characters are based on her real life friends. Mallory Slabaugh and Emma Grabinski are part of The Hopps membership. They are still working on the first few chapters, but I'll bet the story will be worth the wait! ~Natalie Cebulko

Research Of The Week: // By: Natalie Cebulko //
Will found out that the first mathematician to use infinity was John Wallis in 1657.
He found out that Space goes on forever, Just like infinity.
The term infinity came from a Greek philosopher, Anaximander. He used the word aperion which means "infinite"
Poem Of The Week: // By: Natalie Cebulko //
Once there was a person named Bob
Who loved Corn on the Cob
He had a weird attitude,
Which was sure to be viewed
Once there was a person named Bob,
He truly was a slob!
He ripped his paper,
He wasn't a sir!
He knocked over the drawer,
Which blocked the door,
He had some big problems,
Four or some more!
Once there was a person named Bob,
He never got a job...
What kind of poem is this?
Tell in the comments!!!

Freaky Fast Frankie Joe: // By Natalie and Luke //
We are close to the end, but here is a summary of the book.
Frankie Joe's mother is in jail, so he and his friends have a party before he goes to live with his dad. Frankie Joe has to ride with his dad all the way to Minnesota and is really uncomfortable since he doesn't know him very well. He is even more uncomfortable when FJ (his dad) tells Frankie Joe that he will have new brothers! Frankie Joe wants to go home. But he is stuck with his four half brothers until July.
Once he gets there, FJ introduces him to the family. His family members are: Little Johnny, Luke, Mark, Matt, and Lizzy. Matt looks angry. Frankie Joe is nervous. FJ takes Frankie Joe up to his room. He unpacks his stuff.
When FJ first takes him to the school, Frankie Joe doesn't want to go. He knew that his grades are bad, so he knows that he will probably fail every class. FJ promises his new principal to put Frankie Joe into an an after school program, called the Great Escape.
At home, things don't get much better.
Matt is mad because apparently Frankie Joe kicked Matt out of the #1 Huckaby Spot.
Matt is mean to him for, (it seems like forever!)
Frankie Joe doesn't like it here. He writes to his mom in jail. Back and forth, back and fourth. He then plans HIS Great Escape from Clearview.
Frankie Joe starts around the house, gathering items for his escape. He is too late. The snow has fallen, so he has to wait. He finds out that the snow will start melting in March. During Christmas, he saw his half brothers get less for Christmas since he was another expense for the family.
He also snooped and heard Lizzy (his stepmom) and FJ talking. They said that they would try and adopt him. Frankie Joe was furious. He would try to escape before that happened!
During all this time, Frankie Joe started a delivery service to earn money for his escape. He served many people with pizzas, and helped his friend will makeup products.
We are now at the part where Matt found out about his plan. Will Matt blow Frankie's cover? Or will he help Frankie Joe so HE can be back to #1?
