Have you meet eighth grader Sally M.? Sally is an eighth grade student whose favorite movie is “Deadpool”!

“I know it sounds weird that I think it is cool she likes “Deadpool”, but I have never meet a girl whose favorite movie is “Deadpool” said Sally.

 Sally would like to live in Florida.

“I would like to live in Florida, but after the hurricane is over with of course,” said Sally.

Sally considers herself awkward.“Well, I guess I would consider myself awkward,” said Sally.

One of Sally’s favorite clothing store is Hollister. She also likes wearing Nike shoes, eating ramen, drawing, and she prefers California Adventure over Disneyland.

“ I would prefer California Adventure over Disneyland for sure,” said Sally.

Even though Sally’s favorite movie is “Deadpool” doesn’t mean he is her favorite character. Her favorite character is actually “Howl” from Howl’s Moving Castle.

Sally would like to be a writer when grows up. She enjoys writing in journalism class and during her free time she likes to watch youtube.

An interesting fact about Sally is that “out of ALL my family in America, I am the only one that is under twenty years old!”

Can you believe that?! Whether you’re walking down the hall going to your next period or your walking to the blacktop for lunch and you see Sally, make sure you say “Hi”.

“I just want a world without problems-and a lot of sports cars!” said Dillon.


                                                           Genesis O.

By Ellie H.

Have you ever stolen anything from your family and gotten to know a president personally? I can tell you who has, Genesis O.! Who is she exactly? You might have seen her along the halls, walking a dog, drawing, playing golf, and hanging out with her best friend Sophia. F. These are just some of the hobbies she enjoys doing in her spare time.

She has goals and envisions her future, but the best thing she has over some in her life is taking care of her dog, Nelly, for a whole week by herself. You may all be wondering why, but she believes that it taught her how to be a more responsible person and now she can take care of her dog in the future.

Her love for dogs is undeniable and she would love to be a dog for a day. Genesis’s dog is a mini schnauzer and her undying love for her dog, inspires her to be a pet rescuer.

One moment that has impacted her life is when her brother left for the military. Not only does she miss him, she also has goals for herself this. She wants to get good grades this year and eventually go to college to meet new people.

Her biggest goal is to become successful in life and live with her family.

Genesis believes that she’s interesting and one word to describe her is weird.

Something to know about Genesis is she once stole her brother’s Beats and he never found out, she hopes he eventually doesn’t too! Shh!

Her favorite snack is Cheez-its with lime, which she enjoys snacking on, on the way to Mexico, her favorite place to visit. Speaking of Mexico, her fourth generation grandpa was actually the President of Mexico!

If you ever see Genesis around, start a conversation with her. Maybe she might tell you the amazing achievements of her grandpa.

                                                          Alex P.

By Annabelle H.

Have you ever met Alex P. before? Well you have probably seen her with her signature red sweatshirt and short hair walking down the halls. If you haven’t, well here is a bunch of facts that will help you get to know her better.

Did you know that Alex’s role model is Squidward? She loves the fine tunes of his clarinet and his common love for art and his anger towards the world.

Her dream job is to be an author. I can imagine her writing the sweet tales of Squidward riding off into the sunset on Gary, leaving his lunch break from the Krusty Krab.

Alex has many dreams and accomplishments, but something she’s really proud of is, eating the entire giant bag of pirate’s booty.

Something she has been wanting to do, but hasn’t have the guts to is try dancing octopus. Which is a live octopus  served on a plate, eaten while its squirming.

Something she can’t live without is food. She especially loves mac and cheese.

Her favorite show to binge watch is SpongeBob Squarepants, whenever she has time, you know what she’ll be doing.

If Alex was described in one word, she would be described as “Fabulous” according to her best friends.
