Student Council Makes A Difference At RMS

Student Council

By Jocelyn H.

 

Have you ever wondered about who helps to make the numerous events at RMS, like the after school dances or the Team Trivia competitions at lunch? All of these events aren’t possible with the amazing Student Council.

 

Michael Fujii, the teacher who leads Students Council, encourages kids to join for their elective.

 

“Student Council gives kids and students a chance to organize and run events that they like; it also gives them a voice,” said Fujii.

 

Fujii also explains that the group puts on lots of events, like class competitions. This year, their main goals were to improve events and try new things. All of these events are to provide fun things to do during lunch and make sure that students have a fun experience at RMS.

 

In addition to providing students at school a fun time, kids participating in Student Council have also enjoyed the time.

 

Elisa B., the President of Student Council, says, “It’s pretty cool being President. I get to be in charge of something that’s actually significant. I can get people’s spirits up. I never expected to become friends with Sixth and Seventh graders.”

 

The Vice President agrees.

 

“It’s pretty good, getting honored and all. It’s pretty fun. After all, I got to design the t-shirts for the Leadership class,” said Sho M.

 

Other students like the experience too. Abby E., a Seventh Grader, says that “planning the events is fun”.

 

Carmen S. adds that “teamwork is the key to make the events successful”.

 

Sydney M. says that “making events for the school is fun”.

 

Sixth Graders Sam M. and Aubrey L. both enjoy being in the Student Council. Sam likes to be involved in a lot of things, while Aubrey learned how to be a leader, which helps her to get to know the school better.

 

The next time you join an event at school, just remember that it’s most likely organized by Student Council. Most of the events you participate in couldn’t be possible without the help of the RMS Student Council.

Chinese YoYos Come To RMS

Daniel W. shows off his Chinese YoYo skills.
By Jocelyn H.

 
The Chinese YoYo, the second oldest toy (following the doll) in the world which dates back to the Ming Dynasty (1386-1644 A.D.) It was created a long time ago but there is no known inventor. It is also called Empty Bell, Pulling Bell, or Wind Bell. The YoYo was originally made from bamboo or wood, which has been modified to plastic because bamboo and wood are too fragile to perform complicated tricks. 
The YoYo consists of two wheels connected to each other so that the center of mass is where the string goes. With the weight evenly spread out, the performer can accomplish many different tricks.
This toy is great for improving coordination, concentration, and discipline. People need to concentrate on the movement of their hands to balance the YoYo; this also requires a lot of practice. But, all of the practice time will pay off when people master the skills and perform the tricks to an audience.
Today, the Chinese YoYo is very popular, as it provides many benefits. If you need to improve your coordination, concentration, and discipline and have time to practice, the Chinese YoYo will be the perfect toy for you!
 
For more information about the Chinese YoYo, please visit http://www.chineseyoyo.org/ and http://www.hcs.harvard.edu/yoyo/about.html

I loved Medieval Times (MT).  It made me feel like I was in the Middle Ages.  They did a really good job of acting.  It looked real.  -Alan M.

The MT field trip was fun and exciting.  The food was good, like the garlic bread and the cookie.  -Anna L.

I honestly loved the experience…seeing everything going on helped students understand the Middle Ages.  The food was okay, but it was nice how students didn’t have to stay in assigned groups and got to sit with their friends.  -Sarah N.

It was very fun.  The acts were funny.  The food was good and the people were nice.  -Nickie P.

I really liked MT.  It was enjoyable and I liked how we had freedom rather than having to stay with a chaperone.  I liked the show.  It was funny and educational.

-Stephanie P.

MT was an educational experience that summed up what we were learning in class.  It was fun and the performance was very interesting  The workers were helpful and did their jobs well.  Overall, it was a great field trip.  -Unknown Seventh Grader

I enjoyed the field trip to MT a lot.  I feel it gave a good visual of what we are learning this year in Social Studies. -Unknown Seventh Grader

I enjoyed the dinner and the show.  The food was good and I really enjoyed the garlic bread.  This experience was great and I hope I can do it again, someday.

-Unknown Seventh Grader

MT was interesting because they supplied food for you.  It was fun watching the show, even thought the knight I was rooting for didn’t win.  The souvenirs were amazing, but overpriced. -Unknown Seventh Grader

MT was by far the best field trip I have ever gone on.  To sum it all up with one word, I would use “exhilarating”.  -Matt B.

RMS Students Test The Test

This week, April 21st through April 24th, RMS students are taking the new Smarter Balanced Test also known as the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP).  The scores will not count, however, students are asked to do their best, so that they will learn how to negotiate this new statewide test.

Some students enjoyed the new format.

“This test gave me confidence, because I worried about taking it, but when I took it, it was easy,” said Sixth Grader Alex A.

Others enjoyed using the Chrome books.

“I liked it because it was on the computers instead of having to bubble or write on paper,” said Sixth Grader Cole F.

Some were pleasantly surprised by the test.smile face computer

“I didn’t know what to expect, but once I took the test, it was easy,”  said Sixth Grader Lola M.

By the end of the week, students will have had a test in ELA and in Math.  It is running very smoothly in most classes.

“The preparation for the logistics of this test has been wonderful.  We have had IT people and Technology Lead Teachers in and out of our classrooms, and we have had only a few glitches that involved signing on.  Things went really well.  Another benefit is that this test is paperless,” said ELA Teacher Leslie Bezich.

This was a practice for RMS this year.  Next year, students will be taking the real test and we will get results.  Even though scores are not given back to us, the results are being used and analyzed for future tests.

Thanks to all who were involved and especially to those students who took the time to do their best!  We appreciate all of your hard work!

8th Graders React To The Field Trip To The Holocaust Museum

MOT

Students in Mrs. Joelle Connor’s class were asked, “What is your reaction, comment or opinion about your experience at the Museum of Tolerance?”  Here are some of their responses.

The museum was a truly moving experience. It was amazing to see what it was really like during the Holocaust.  I enjoyed the museum a lot. – Reid S.

The museum was very interesting and full of knowledge.  The tour was cool with the interaction.  Overall, it was okay.  -Sean L.

The field trip caught my attention. It showed me that if we don’t learn to except things, the Holocaust can happen again.- Author Unknown

My tour guide was an actual Holocaust Survivor.  It was so touching to hear her story and know that she had hope even when she was in Auschwitz.  It shows that you should have hope even in the darkest situations. -Alex K.

The MOT reminded me that no matter how much good was in the world, that there was the same amount of people that are evil, but carry a smile on their face.  - Maryna B.

The MOT is very sad yet very informative.  It cleared up a lot of speculation on current events and the Holocaust too.  Overall, I think that out of all of the field trips I’ve been to, it was one of the best. -Author Unknown

The MOT was boring at first, but it got fascinating halfway through.  It was a great learning experience and can help teach students about the flaws in our world.  -Kenneth P.

We had a Holocaust Survivor as our guide for the museum.  She told us about her experience and it made the Holocaust seem so much more surreal.  -Kate L.

The MOT is sad but very interesting.  It is not boring and will teach you why you should be tolerant of others. You will never forget the experience. – Author Unknown

The MOT influenced me by showing me that what happened in the past could happen again.  It showed me that we can’t make the same mistakes because these things could happen again.  -Kenji K.

The MOT was very tragic and taught me a lot of things.  What was done to the people during the Holocaust will never be forgiven or forgotten!  -Nika L.

The MOT is a place where everyone should visit.  The lessons and information at the museum are vital for this day and era to hear and read. After visiting the museum, I would like to become a docent, that’s how much I enjoyed it.  Plus, the bus ride was really fun! -Grace R.

The MOT was an experience no one will ever forget.  It is the details of what happened during the Holocaust and the one person can change the world.  -Ryan M.

Going to MOT is one of the most memorable days of my life.  It has taught me that the Holocaust shows the worst of mankind.  -Author Unknown

The MOT was a huge learning experience because I learned why you shouldn’t be racist or mean.  There were millions of people killed because they were “different”.  -Anthony R.

When people think of genocides, they automatically think of the Holocaust, nothing else.  When we watched the video about genocides, they named about forty current genocides. The Holocaust was an international terror, but we need to realize there are all the other current genocides and we need to do something about them.  -Norman X.

New “Kid” On The Block-Meet Mister Medrano

Medrano

By Victoria P.

Have you met Mr. Medrano yet? He’s Richardson’s new Social Science and Physical Education teacher. If you don’t have him as a teacher, here are some facts about him just so you can get to know him a little better.

His full name is Robert Medrano, his favorite color is cardinal red and his favorite book is The Grapes Of Wrath.

“My favorite color is cardinal because the color of USC is cardinal red and gold”, said Medrano.

Medrano has only taught at Richardson for two quarters and thinks the best part of being a teacher is knowing that he helped a student succeed when he or she may have been struggling.

One of Medrano’s pet peeves is tardiness.

“I try my best to follow the adage (saying), on time is ten minutes late,” said Medrano.

University of Southern California, California State University, Fullerton, and Los Altos High School are the schools Medrano has attended.

Medrano likes to spend time with family, run, hike, mountain bike, and watch college football.

If Medrano wasn’t a teacher, he would like to write travel guides.

Paris, France is Medrano’s favorite vacation spot.

“I like going to Paris because of their culture, history, and their food”, said Medrano.

Other facts about Medrano are that “Dark knight” is his favorite movie, his favorite food is chili cheese fries, and NCAA football and NHL games are his favorite television shows.

Stop by Room 4 and say “Hi” to Mr. Medrano.  He enjoys meeting new people!

“We met about a year and eight months ago when a mutual friend decided we were ‘meant for each other’! A little over a year later, he proposed at Signal Hill Park in Long Beach which over looks much of Los Angeles.  It was a beautiful, clear day and as the sunset created amazing colors though the clouds, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.  

The wedding is set for July 2014.  We are planning an evening wedding on a ranch with our closest family and friends.”
