Most Popular Book
The most popular book this month is Divergent series. You may just think it is boring and silly. You also may not like reading, but after this book you will want to read the whole series twice. I want you to close your eyes and picture this scene from the book. "There is one mirror in my house. It is behind a sliding panel in the hallway upstairs. Our faction allows me to stand in front of it on the second day of every third month, the day my mother cuts my hair." You may think this is the worst grabber sentence ever invented on mankind, but as you get farther in you start to fall in love with the book. To sum up the book it is about a girl named Tris who has to pick a faction and stay with it. She picks a faction and leaves her family forever. She figures out that she is Divergent and is in deep danger. It may cost her life. When she gets to her faction she is having a hard time, she is stressed and gets help from her instructor Four and he falls madly in love and tries to protect her in anyway possible. I hope you like this book. Come get it first at your Mineola Library.

Teacher of the Year
Do you know who won teacher of the year? Well you’re about to find out! Here let me give you a hint. She is the 6th grade math teacher! That’s right Mrs. Garrett won! She feels honored, surprised and grateful! I asked her if she thought she deserved it and she said that there are many teachers in our district who deserve this honor. I also asked her why she started teaching in the first place and she said I love working with children and seeing them learn. I asked her what was the most difficult thing to teach in math and she said writing equations for word problems. This is the last question! How many years have you been teaching in Mineola and she said this will be her 11th year. Mrs. Garrett is a fun, joyful, loving teacher that loves to see students succeed. Don’t forget to congratulate her when you see her!

FUN FACTS ABOUT LIONS
Lions are the second largest cat species in the world (behind tigers).
The average male lion weighs around 180 kg (400 lb) while the average female lion weighs around 130 kg (290 lb).
The heaviest lion on record weighed an amazing 375 kg (826 lb).
Lions can reach speeds of up to 81 kph (50 mph) but only in short bursts because of a lack of stamina.
The roar of a lion can be heard from 8 kilometers (5.0 miles) away.
Most lions found in the wild live in southern and eastern parts of Africa.
Lions are very social compared to other cat species, often living in prides that feature females, offspring and a few adult males.
Male lions are easy to recognize thanks to their distinctive manes. Males with darker manes are more likely to attract female lions (lionesses).
Lions are the national animal of Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, England, Ethiopia, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Singapore.
Lions in the wild live for around 12 years.
When lions breed with tigers the resulting hybrids are known as ligers and tigons. There are also lion and leopard hybrids known as leopons and lion and jaguar hybrids known as jaglions.
Lionesses are better hunters than males and do most of the hunting for a pride.
In the wild, lions rest for around 20 hours a day.
Here are ways to prevent gossip from starting.
When you find yourself repeating a person’s name over and over again in a story, or topic stop after the second repeat and ask yourself how bringing this up is bettering the world which it’s not.
If you are repeating a story about someone, pause for a second and take a few seconds to think about that particular person. What is the effect going to be about the problem there? Could you be so annoyed by it because it’s familiar to you and might be a practice you are guilty of, too?
If you find that someone is constantly challenging your world in a way that doesn’t feel good and positive to you, can you remove that person from your life or not? If it’s your sister, brother, or close friend maybe not, but how can you work around this challenge?
If this person is someone who is going to continue to be in your life for a long period of time it’s important that you don’t let the stories become just that—stories. Tell them over and over and they grow more fantastic with time. Look at what’s important in that moment, focus on that, and let the gossip roll away and try to make it never come back.
If you absolutely must talk about this person, give yourself a time limit. Look at a clock on the wall. Tell the story in 1-3 minutes. Wrap it up. Change the topic right away.
Doesn’t that feel good just thinking about it does it?
This is what the bible says about gossiping
Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
Not too long ago there was gossip going around about some girls talking about me. I’m not going to say any names but, they were talking about how I couldn’t do 15 push ups. Also that if I want to be in athletics then I need to learn how to run faster and better. Let me tell you something don’t let someone elses word put you down and if they do then pick yourself back up that’s what I learned about that whole experience. It's weird how people who are the least close to me or who've never even met me purport to be experts on the real me; and then, sadly, there are those who could be in touch with me but prefer to gossip with strangers about me instead.Be impeccable with your word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

Top 10 Activities
No. 10: Summer Cleaning
Summer time gives you the perfect opportunity to go through all your old toys and clothes and get rid of what you don’t need any more. Instead of boxing it up and storing it for months in your basement or attic, you can put it straight into your garage sale and earn some extra bucks for slurpees and waterslide passes!
No. 9: Get Chalky!
Feeling artistic? Why not try your hand at some street art? Get some sidewalk chalk and go to town. Who knows? Maybe you’ll create the next masterpiece
No. 8: Fly a Kite
What do you do when it’s a nice day out, but just a little bit too windy? Why, fly a kite, of course! Find a park, beach or large open field with few to no trees that will get in the way, run like the wind and let your kite soar.
No. 7: Water Fight!
It’s hot out. You’ve got ten friends together. And about 50 water balloons. But there’s nothing to do. Wait a second…water fight! Nothing beats the heat better than popping a water balloon over your head or getting drenched by a super soaker.
No. 6: Scavenger Hunt
If your parents or friends’ parents aren't too busy, ask them to set up a scavenger hunt for you! It could be around the house, around the yard or around the block. Maybe the winner could get a prize, like a free ice cream!
No. 5: Pool Time
If you have access to a pool, cool off with some pool time. If you’re not into lounging and catching some rays, play games like marco polo, relay races, or, if you have access to sinkable toys, have an underwater scavenger hunt!
No. 4: Picnic in the Park
Nothing says summer like a picnic in the park. Pack some sandwiches, chips, crackers and cheese and juice boxes, and head out to you local park with your family or friends for a nice outdoor lunch in the sun.
No. 3: Get Active
You spend 10 months of the year sitting at your desk in school. So while the weather is nice, get outside and get active! Ride your bike, rollerblade or skateboard with some friends. Or play outdoor sports, like frizbee, badminton or football, in your backyard or local park.
No. 2: Day at the Beach
When the weather is good, why waste your time sitting at home when you could be at the beach, snorkeling, surfing the waves or catching some rays.
No. 1: Camping
Taking the number one spot in our top 10 list of summer activities is camping. It encompasses everything - the beach, sunshine, outdoor sports, picnics, campfires and braving the elements. Nothing defines the ultimate summer activity better than camping.
