Oldest Fish ever

The worlds oldest fish was a Koi fish named Hanako. She was born in 1751 and died in 1977. She was the world's oldest fish that we know of right now. I would have never guessed a fish could get that old but i guess its possible. It was said that the oldest species of fish in not the Koi though. It was the Coelacanth species. They have been alive since the dinosaurs were alive. Now back to the main topic, Hanako lived 226 years! Thats why she is the oldest fish ever. She died of old age sadly but maybe she could have lived just a few more years. I think if a fish could live that long then us humans have no reason not to. Or do they!?

Cheated Out


By: Morgan Sidak
Story has it, that the two porcupine twins of farmer Michael's garden cheated out Butchy Hare! One of the twins went to the garden to get some vegetables for Father Porcupine, and there was Butchy Hare., acting all big and fast just to get the porcupine mad. The animals around watched as Butchy tried to get the porcupine mad or annoyed. The porcupine just sat there and stayed calm. After words, the hare bet the porcupine that he could beat him in a race. The porcupine agrees and went home. There, the porcupine twins make an evil plan. They say that when it came to the race, the twins put their evil plan into action and ended up beating Butchy Hare!

Favorite App

The app I am choosing to use is called Angry Birds. It’s a fun game where you fling some birds with special powers at pigs protected by castles and other forts they build to keep the birds away. The reason the birds are trying to attack the pigs is because a while ago, the pigs stole the birds eggs. So the birds go on this big adventure through different levels, flinging themselves at the pigs until they get their eggs back.

Survey Results for Shorter Week

Argument: the school board is considering reorganizing the school week.

They are suggesting that there be four school days rather then five.

Each school day would then be two hours longer then a normal day.

Support your position for or against this issue.


agree (to shorten school week):

1: it would help us learn more.

2: kids can have a nap time for one class period.

3: weekends are longer.

-----------------------------------

disagree (not to shorten):

1: because it could mess up the space time continuum and make the people in the future mad and then they will come back to the past and yell at us all.

2: less time for sports.

3: less time to do things suck as chores or things like that at home.

4: less time to spend time with family.
