Danger- By Elizabeth Giordano

We strutted throughout the town with our heads held high and our eyes sparkling, as if we were aristocrats. Trey Crespeir, my brother, had his hair slicked to the side -a natural do of his-, and it shined like a diamond ring in the sunlight. Although it was the color of a midnight sky without any stars, he still had that greasy radiance reaching out, defining his fortunately outgoing personality. His usual smooth, pallid skin was replaced by astonishingly olive shades out in the bright sun of the day. The tight jaw muscles he insisted on ceaselessly tensing created an outstanding definition to his face. The specks of blue in his glinting, forest green eyes made his look fully complete.

My hair, on the other hand, was long and elegant, twisting beautifully down my back. The shade was a unique golden, platinum blond with a few lighter, subtle highlights. Unlike his multi-colored eyes, mine were freakishly blue. My lips were genuinely rose colored, and my skin tone was always the same- a sickly pasty.

A majority of people's eyes were on my brother, a good thing. I slightly curled my pointer finger, then the ground immediately started violently shaking. My mouth rose, a microscopic smirk appearing. In sync with my steps, Trey effortlessly moved to the right, separating himself from me. As if on cue, the ground broke open, sending a ton of debris straight into the air, only to come back down and levitate. I tilted my head upwards, and when the others saw me do it, they lifted their heads as well, falling straight into my trap.

I conjured an illusion that only Trey couldn’t see. Fake flames burst throughout the air, and everyone shrieked like a demented kitten and began to run away. As soon as the area was cleared, I reversed my illusion and my brother fix the broken ground with a second-long stare at the destruction zone.

An average human-being would’ve spared hours upon hours doing the damage we did in just minutes.


I turned my head to see Trey’s eyebrows furrowed in concern, and that’s when I noticed I had been ignorantly wondering about nonsense whilst my brother was doing all the work.

What a good way to spend the day.

“Yes?” I replied, attempting to convince him that I was merely distracted by another one of my conscience’s arguments with my decisions.

“Nothing, nevermind,” he shrugged and gestured for me to follow him. I did. He lead me to an abandoned house with wrecked shutters, glass on the floor, and broken bricks scattered everywhere. He pointed towards the stairs, and I headed straight towards them, expecting them to be able to be used the intended way, walk on them to either get up or down. They, of course, exceeded my expectations. As soon as I tried to step on the first stair, I tripped and fell straight through the solid wood. Trey came in with ease, showing no fear with his tense jaw still tight. But then, I saw the most amazing sight in the world.

The room had a roof of such realistic stars that I almost fell for them being… Real.

But believing this was wrong of me, it distracted me, because I didn’t bother to notice that a gigantic animal was lunging at me, and Trey wasn’t in the chamber to aid me.

More Amazing Band News! By Natalya Boyd

Well, in my last article I told you about band and the amazing band concert, but now I have to tell you how amazing the band concert was! The first song was played by the 4th and 5th graders and it was called Bugler’s Dream, the next song was called Rocking La Bamba played only by the 5th graders, the next Star Wars again only played by the 5th graders, and the finally song was called Beethoven’s Ninth or Ode to Joy played by the 4th and 5th graders. The concert was only 15 minutes long though it was a lot of fun and as a clarinetist I have to say it wasn't challenging and all the work we did was definitely worth it. Anyway there will be another show in June that I’ll inform you about as soon as possible. And make sure to check out the band

Field trips - one of the most exciting and interesting days of the school year that many students, including myself, look forward to! This year, both MTES and JHES are taking fun field trips, from Pennsylvania to Trenton and everywhere in between! Here are just a few of the super cool field trips happening this year.

The fifth graders are taking a trip into the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia! This fun attraction features a lot of fun activities. This science museum is the center of science education and research for Philadelphia. The institute welcomes hundreds of thousands of annual visitors. One of the exhibits you can explore is the giant heart in the middle of the museum, which you can climb through and get to the top. Also, the award-winning brain exhibit features a glow-in-the-dark jungle gym made to resemble the tunnels of your brain! Overall, I think the fifth graders will be having a ton of fun at the Franklin Institute!

The sixth graders are taking multiple trips this year, one of which was to the Penn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology! The Penn Museum consists of many exhibitions to explore, including the Egyptian Sphinx gallery! This is a fifteen ton monumental granite Sphinx, which is the centerpiece of one of the finest collections of Egyptian architecture on display in the United States. This museum also has an Ancient Greek gallery, which displays ancient painted vases, as well as recovered bronze armor, marble sculptures, coins and much more! Besides this, the sixth graders are also taking a few trips to the Middle School! On one, they got a tour of the middle school, and got to eat the delicious lunches and saw an exclusive performance by the chorus and wind ensemble! They are also spending their field day there. All in all, the sixth graders have a lot of fun awaiting them regarding field trips for this year!

To sum it up, these are just a couple of the fantastic and fun field trips our district has this year! Whether you are in MTES or JHES, I can assure you that you will have a GREAT time on your field trip!!

People, unnoticed they go, run the world. Not major Donald Trump like, but a small, yet major step in a child’s life. Their personal touch onto a child’s life is so beneficial is their lives as they are growing up because the children of the United States of America are influenced by their teachers to do good things and pursue the jobs and occupations they want in the near upcoming future. In our school, there are three very important staff member who currently deserve recognition. These two share a joyful personality, and work so the children can enjoy their childhood in school. One works to help the students stay safe and comfortable, while the other works to teach the students.

To begin, my first dedication is to Mr. Regi. He is the behind-the-scenes major worker. Who fixes up the vents, the heaters, the air conditioners, and so much more? Mr. Regi. He works unnoticed by others and unseen by us all. He works around the clock to help the kids stay safe in the school, and comfortable in temperature and so much more. Who remembers Mrs. Miele’s room? Anybody who was in her room last year knows how cold it was. Who came to the rescue when the winter storms and ice froze up her room? Mr. Regi!! In conclusion, Mr. Regi does a lot of behind-the-scenes work that does not receive a lot of recognition, especially not the amount he deserves, because he deserves so, so much more.

The second dedication I made is Mrs. Szymanski, the computer teacher. She is a very kind, loving woman who enjoys to teach the kids a very exciting class. She always has a kind heart, a kind spirit, and a kind manner whenever I walk in. Whether it be for computer class, or A.C.T, she always seems to be in the happiest mood anybody could ever be in. She is always helping the kids in their typing skills, or their technology skills. She is always excited and saying she is so pumped up for what we will be doing in the class period. Therefore, her name is noted on the dedications page.

You have read about two amazing and unnoticed employees who do a lot of work, and deserve attention, thanks, and recognition. Thank you Mr. Regi and Mrs. Szymanski for all your hard work!

The classroom I chose for Classroom Spotlight was my classroom, 5 Hendershot. I chose this class because not only the teacher, Ms. Hendershot , is amazing, the classmates are all unique and amazing in their own ways ( not that the other classes aren’t ). I interviewed a few kids in this classroom to see their opinion about how this classroom deserves the spotlight. First, I interviewed Lauren Manzie. “This classroom is amazing because the teacher is so nice”, she told me (I personally agree with her). Next, I interviewed Chloe Sheffield. “I think this classroom is so amazing because the teacher teaches amazing and always goes over it so everyone understands it!” , she told me. Lastly, I interviewed Katelyn Meshanko. “ First of all, spinny chairs take this thing to a whole different level! Also the teacher is amazing”, she told me. To conclude this, I think that 5 Hendershot is an amazing classroom!!

BOOK REVIEW - 11 Birthdays

By Nicholas Moran

We all want our birthday to repeat. Everyday, presents, cake, candles, and people line the house waiting for your birthday celebration to begin. However, do we all really want our birthday to repeat? For Amanda and Leo, the answer is no. They have been friends since they were born. Every year, when they celebrated their birthdays together, they become closer and closer friends. But the tides have turned. On their tenth birthday, Amanda overhears Leo say somethings heartbreaking and devastating about her. She is heartbroken and melancholy about what he had said. The next year, it has been a year since the two friends have spoken. Suddenly, as Amanda and Leo’s eleventh birthdays come around, Amanda is thrown into a spiral of events caused by the conflict of her and Leo. Once her torturous eleventh is over, and she falls asleep, ten hours later, she awakens to the torturing alarm of her clock. It is her birthday again. When she and Leo meet up and become friends again after solving their differences, they discover the truth behind the repeating birthday. Afterall, it is Willow Falls, where anything can happen.

This story is an extravagant twist on the average birthday party. I enjoyed this story because the author, Wendy Mass, details this story so well that I almost felt as if I was in the story. She makes your emotions twist, turn, change, and fall as the story moves from scene to scene. From when Amanda is set up by her sister as if she had purposely made her mother lose her job, to the scene where all turns out to be well, Wendy Mass makes the story a roller coaster journey. In my opinion, this story is a fabulous read, and a definite must for the bookworms.

The Classroom Rules Are...By Sierra Becksworth

The rules in the classroom are...

Each day I’ll do my best ,and I won't do any less

Springfield Golf Center By Leo Grisham

Just a few miles from Columbus NJ, is the Springfield Golf Center on Jacksonville Road. It is a fun place to spend the afternoon. My Dad and I spend every Sunday afternoon playing. If you don’t have enough time for a full 18 holes, there is mini golf and an 18 hole chip n’ putt. You can rent your equipment there and if you get hungry there is a small snack bar to buy chips, candy, and drinks. If you decide to play the full 18 holes you can rent a golf cart to drive from hole to hole. I think you would have a fun afternoon playing, getting some exercise, and spending time with family and friends. I love meeting up with friends there too. In conclusion I suggest trying out this golf center!
