Rock out at the Street Fair!

The 2012 street fair started on September 18th and went until the 22nd. There is a new ride this year, but they took out the Fireball. The new ride is The Freak Out. For the ones who are adventurous you will like this ride. From experience it made my stomach twist and turn and when I got off it was hard to walk, but it was really fun while it lasted. On Wednesday, Campus Life had their traditional scavenger hunt.

This scavenger hunt consisted of what they called a man hunt. The participants were given a picture of a person that works in a booth or a ride at the fair. They had to go find that person and take a picture with him/her and go back to the court house and show Cheris. Then they had to go find two pink flamingos with Campus Life bracelets on and take pictures of them. The winners of this challenge were Molly Stoffel, Paul Renner, and Thomas Charles.

8th Grade Football Quotes

The 8th grade football team is having a good season bonding with the new 7th graders. Evan Huffman stated "Our team puts in a lot of effort to each play.
We don't have a lot of talent on the team but we make up for it in each play.
The 7th graders are a good team to watch and are only getting better as the season goes. I can't wait to be in the high school and play for my high school team."















Austin Shuler quoted "The boys are left home to play video games and sit on the couch! The real men come to play their hardest and leave everything on the field... We do our best to show what were made of... Just because we don't win doesnt mean we don't have the talent."












Uriah DeWeese quoted "My favorite memory of this season would be playing in the rain. When we play in the rain we slide in mud and have a good time. One of my goals for this year is to get five tackles each game. One thing I have to say for the coaches is that they help make us better as a team and teach us new techniques. This year has been a good season, bonding with my team and the seventh graders."













Mason Page stated "This season is going okay. My team could be doing better. The coaches are pretty cool, I couldn't pick a favorite out of them. My favorite memory of football would be scoring my first touch down. The positions I play are quarter back and sometimes on defense I play defensive end. I'm looking forward to my freshman year."

Football Field Drought

Unfortunately this year we cannot play on our home football field due to the unstable grass. The field was re-crowned in the spring so the water wouldn't stand on the field and would drain off. The new grass was planted shortly after, and due to the drought the grass didn't grow back as well as we thought it would. The field as of right now is just a bunch of weeds. We are killing off the weeds  within the next week or two the field will look worse then it already does.

All of our "home" games will be played at Bluffton or Eastbrook. Please try to keep the stands clean and pick up all of your trash. We give a big thanks to both facilities for letting us use their fields.
We are sorry to say that there will be NO true home games this football season.

As a school we are trying to make every good moment of this football season last. Thank you seniors for being very cooperative. We hope to see a lot of good games and wish you all good luck.

We will keep pictures posted.

Raiders First Home Game

Our varsity team leaves the field after a hard fought battle against Shenandoah. The boys fought hard the whole game. Grant Harris had his first sack of the season in the third quarter. Touchdowns were scored by: Kennan Mooberry, Jake Roush, and Cole Preston. The boys showed a lot of enthusiasm as Clay Huffman was getting the players pumped along the side lines. The final score was 25-41.

Mr. Thomas's Flip Class

Mr. Thomas's 3rd period Algebra 1 class has decided to do a Flip Class Room. A flip class is where the students go home and watch the lesson at home, then come to school the next day and do their homework in class. The benefit of the flip class is to get more help on homework and for Mr. Thomas to answer any questions that need to be answered.

This gives Mr. Thomas more one on one time with each individual student. Mr. Thomas believes that this will benefit the students. We believe we will see the students' grades rise because of past experiences. Mr. Thomas believes that this will help with better ECA scores.

Eventually Mr. Thomas wants to do this with all of his classes. In order to do that the students must have access to a computer. If the students don't have a way to a computer they can watch the videos in Mr. Thomas's room. If they have a computer and don't have Internet the students must bring in a flash drive. Then Mr. Thomas will download the video for each night to the flash drive.

Training Wheels

Everyone who has rode a bike, probably started somewhere. We all have memories of falling off of our bike but who would have though that training wheels may be the cause of our skinned up hands and busted knees. It’s unclear when training wheels became popular, although historians suggest the early 1900s seem most likely. But it’s apparent why they became popular. They were an obvious solution to an obvious problem: How do you convince someone to climb onto something that is obviously going to fall over? So it isn’t surprising that aspiring riders wanted some greater stability, especially when bicycles were still an amazing sight.

Raves while on lunch break?

Lol what?

The Swedish are known for quite a few things, inventing Skype, the pacemaker, and many other awesome things, but recently, I read something that even cooler then those. Apparently they rave during their lunch breaks at work. Yep, some Swedish companies have big dance parties in the middle of the day. It all started in 2010 when 14 or so friends would dance their lunches away in their garage. They called it "Lunch Beat." Rumors of this spread around the underground of Swedish pop culture and it soon caught on. Now many popular venues and clubs offer midday fun. Most workplaces allow workers an hours to let loose and have fun and dub it "the most important hour of your week." There are even a list of rules that are kind of like the ten commandments of clubbing. 

It's interesting to see how differently people do things on the other side of the Atlantic.
