Crocuses Get a Jump on Spring!

The Winter Concert by: Jessica Verly 4-203E

The Winter Concert at P.S.119 was out of this world! The groups were Chorus, Recorder, Rhythm, Steppers and dancers. The chorus sang a beautiful song, actually two beautiful songs. Recorder did My Funny Valentine and I’m Coming Home. Rhythm did an awesome job with the movements and hitting buckets. Steppers were rocking it out with the dancing and stepping and the little attitude in it. Last but not least the dancers. There was Neyo,Rihanna,and Chris Brown and a monsteres song. Everybody did so well beacause Mrs.Francis worked really hard to earn her credit. Everybody was cheering for all of the groups but mostly for Mrs.Francis, she was worked out and thanked everybody. I hope the Spring Concert can be as awesome as the Winter Concert

Mock Trial Is Proceeding! By Harpreet Multani 5-305

On February 22, 2013, Ms. Wilson (5-305’s Mock Trial helper/teacher) came in and heard class 5-305 perform some of their Mock Trial. Ms. Wilson and Ms. Rivieccio helped each other make changes to the script so that it can be better. Even though there were already many changes, many classes who participate in this Legal Lives project have watched their video many times. I will try my best to recall all of the parts students in 5-305 have. However, this is not the permanent list. On February 25, 2013, there might be some changes to some parts if students in 5-305 don’t memorize their parts. (TRYING MY BEST TO SPELL :P)

COURT CLERK- AARON DORSAINVIL (AUTHOR AND CREATOR OF “MY LITTLE STORIES”)

JUDGE- HARPREET K. MULTANI (ALSO KNOWN AS ME!!)

PROSECUTOR #1- KELAN ARCHIBALD

DEFENSE #1- LOURDENIE MONEREAU

PROSECUTOR #2- CHRISTINA ALEXIS

MS. BROWN- STEPHANIE CHARLES

DEFENSE #2- MIRYAM JUAREZ

PROSECUTOR #3- SAJJAWAL CHOUDHARY

POLICE OFFICER BANNER- SAPPHIRE HENRY

DEFENSE #3- AUDREY SANCHEZ

DEFENSE #4- STARR BROOKS

JAMES STURGESS- SHAWN PHILLIP (ALSO KNOWN AS MR. GUILTY!)

MRS. MARTHA STURGESS- AALIYAH JAMES (GUILTY GUY’S MOTHER)

DEFENSE #5- TAISHA CHARLES

PROSECUTOR #4- MUAZMA HUSSAIN

DEFENSE #6- KENSCIANA CHARLES

PROSECUTOR #5- DAVONE DAWSON

Well, this is all I have now. I’m really sorry if I didn’t get all of the names. I must’ve forgotten or it’s maybe because many of the students are in the jury. AGAIN DON’T THINK THAT THIS IS THE PERMANENT LIST! IT’S PROBABLY GOING TO CHANGE. When Ms. Wilson came, she gave us some advise about our voices and she gave us many compliments. Right now, just wish 5-305 luck and GIVE US MORE COMPLIMENTS SO MS. RIVIECCIO WILL BE FORCED TO GIVE US ANOTHER PIZZA PARTY! Don’t worry teachers, I’ll share! Stay tuned for my next posting. PEACE!

 

Causes of the Civil War by Keshon Blackman 4-310

When Abraham Lincoln was  elected president in 1860 he wanted to abolish slavery. He set a law that slavery was no  longer allowed in the United States. The North was okay with it.  Most of the states in the North were free states.  The people in the South did not like what Abraham Lincoln  did. The South  wanted to make there own laws. The South also wanted slavery  so they seceded from the country.  The South made their own country named The Confederate States of America. President Lincoln did not want the south to secede he wanted his country to be united. The United States were no longer united. Not all states seceded from the country. These states were called the border states.   These  states wanted slavery but they believed  that seceding from the country was wrong. These states were Kentucky, Delaware Maryland, and Missouri.  These states also fought with The Union. The Union were the states that stayed with the United States. The Union went against the The Confederate States of America in the Civil War.

My Little Story: Summer’s Heartbreak, A Valentine’s Little Story Part: 1 (Aaron 5-305)

Agent SummerSummer  I’m Summer, but you guys already know that. It’s about Valentine’s Day, which often reminds me of my many romantic train wrecks. Sure, I may be as beautiful as Tyra but I went through more heartbreaks, than all of my dad’s victims while soldier … ing?
You see Derek did not just pop out of the blue and said, “There’s a single lady! Beyoncé has one less friend!” I have standards. At least after Chaz came into my life.
“Summer! Walker’s having a meeting, all employees are needed!” someone called0 at me. Guess I gotta continue this story later.
Walker stood tall and proud, on a podium making preparing an announcement. He did a headcount on who was here and who was not, although I don’t know why because any one who worked here before, retired. No one was ever fired before. Walker is TOO FORGIVING!!!!!!! You’ll learn not to forgive certain #$@!%&*$#@*!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry for such nasty language.
“Alright,” Walker began his speech, “as you know Summer of this agency has experienced, many, many, many, many, many, many, MANY romantic train wrecks. With this knowledge, we could use this as a caution as not to trust everyone. Summer! Get on up over here.”
I raced to the wooden podium. Walker may not fire people, but he can be a hot head.
“Hello people,” I greeted everyone in the audience. My love-life has provided me with much information on how trusting the wrong people, can harm you. I’ve taken the liberty of preparing my first encounter involving Chaz McFreely.”
And suddenly everyone looked at Chaz, now wondering why he works at this agency.
“So it was about two years ago …”
Back then I was as a naïve as those dumb blondes in the movies.  Anything I saw was in the best case scenario, no worries or fears.
I was walking down Main Street when Chaz caught me off guard. We had walked into each other, and I was ready to scold. Until I saw his face. Chiseled features, slope of his nose, and perfect tan skin tone.
“Watch where you’r-” Chaz yelled, before looking into my direction. Our eyes met in sync. He then changed his look. “Sorry it was all my fault. Want me to pay for lunch to make up for this?” And boom! The man was mine.
“How about you have lunch WITH me instead?” I suggested. Biggest mistake I’ve ever made in my life. And I even pushed a guy down a flight of stair for winking at me. I got court ordered  community service.
Chaz and I, traveled to chef Gino’s pizzeria and he seemed like such a gentleman. Always said please, thank you, you’re welcome, and praised anyone who saw. It was until I noticed Annie Rad (Travis’ cousin) walk  in. I noticed how Chaz hid his face. It was until months later I found out he had cheated on me with her, and some strange hula girl.
“Why are you hiding Chaz?” I had asked him. I was so stupid back then.
“Oh don’t worry, I just see one of my crazed fans. Remember I do stunts on my motorcycle. Can’t get caught by crazed  fans.”
Back then I would just shrug, but now I know he was a #$@!%&*$#@*.
Sorry again for the nasty language. Esp. since it was the same word.

Happy Valentines Day Mrs. Berretta Wrap by Arham Hanif, Aila Choudary, and Furqan Khan 4-203E

Happy Valentines Day

To tell you this is the way

To tell your crush

Try not to blush

Don’t be in a rush.

Love your crush with all you heart

Buy them something with a shopping cart.

Share a delicious hot dog bun.

Sit under the tree and block the sun.

When you are done with the hot dog

Have a kiss on the log.

It will be a kiss you will never miss.

Now all we can say is…

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!

HALA!!
