Field Trip to Harvard’s Museum of Natural History

The field trip I went to was awesome because at the Museum of Natural History there was a lot of history.  My favorite part was when we went on a scavenger hunt. We had to look and see very very closely and see which paw matched the animal on the paper.  The field trip   was so much better than staying home on a Saturday doing nothing but watching TV all day.

If you were there you would know how amazing it was.

My Father Richard Stringer came and chaperoned the trip and he thought the history there was amazing once we got upstairs and explored everything!

I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT FIELD TRIP!

Hunger Games Movie Review

By Stanley Aneke

Last Friday, students from the Paraclete went to go see the movie The Hunger Games. You had to have good behavior and you had to read the book, and you had to attend the Paraclete regularly. The movie was well organized and baffled my mind.

The Hunger Games was really sad, it almost made Ms. Lucero cry. The actors and the actresses acted the movie out really well. Did you think the book was better than the movie? Think about that question. Ask Stanley, Ms. Lucero, Ms. K what you think.

My favorite character were Rue, Katniss and Peeta.  The best part was when Katniss and Peeta won The Hunger Games. I was so happy and amazed about what happened. The part that I disliked was when Katniss just forgot about Gale. I personally thought Gale won Katniss’s Heart.

Marian and Crystal liked the movie. Did you? The movie had a lot of feeling and action in it. What would you grade the movies overall percentage? For me it was a 95%. What about you?

Paraclete Gossip Column

Paraclete student Crystal Aneke has started a gossip column for the Paraclete Chronicle called “Gossip Girl.” Her first column revolves around the budding romance between two of the dogs at the Paraclete: Scout (a young English Pointer) and Boo (a black Labrador Retriever many years his senior). Check out the details below.

Boo and Scout in love? Find out now on the latest addition to part one of Gossip Girl featuring your host, Crystal Aneke.

So today I saw the cutest thing ever! Guess what? So are you ready? OK, so I saw Boo and Scout sharing a bone, then later that day I also noticed Boo and Scout awfully close. The craziest thing of all, Boo denied Ms. Lucero giving her food! Can you believe that? Boo never denies food from Ms. Lucero. NEVER!

So I saw Boo and Scout sharing a bone today on the stairs! That’s how I knew it was a official. Scout stared at Boo’s brown eyes. Boo then gracefully slept on Scout’s arm. “Awwwwwww,” I screamed. “Drama bomb!” So you didn’t hear it from me! Boo and Scout are so getting married. Just look at them.

Stay tuned for the next episode of Gossip Girl!

P.S. Casey is asking people who they think is the best looking celebrity.

Hunger Games Movie Review #2

By Marian Cruz

Last Friday, the Paraclete went to go see The Hunger Games with the 16 students that were chosen to go. Watching was incredibly exciting and everybody’s anticipation was growing. In my opinion, I believe the movie was great and showed a lot of feelings that I myself would feel if I had to fight to the death with only one person surviving. One thing that I would do to make it better is to add more mystery between the characters and more foreshadowing.

Marian asked some Paraclete students who also went to the film for their opinions:

Stanley Aneke: The Hunger Games had a lot of action and it was really sad but very entertaining.

Casey Mulligan: It was awesome. I think the book was better though.

Crystal Aneke: It was sad and made me cry. It showed a lot of emotion and I just felt as if I was in the movie. It was great.

Marian and Lybia

One of our stellar 5th graders chose to challenge herself by reporting on the situation in Libya! Her effort and research is clearly evident in this article, which succinctly describes the early situation.

The Battle for Libya

A few weeks ago the U.S and other countries including France and the United Kingdom, began military attacks against the government of Libya. They are trying to stop the Libyan Leader, Colonel Muammar al-Qaddafi, from attacking his own people. Thousands of protesters took the streets of Libya in protests similar to those in Egypt, more than a month ago. The protesters demanded that Qaddafi step down.

Qaddafi has ruled Libya for 41 years and he refuses to leave. Many protesters have joined an army of rebels. Qaddafi’s troops and warplanes have attacked the rebels and others who lived in cities where rebels have taken control. Now governments around the world agreed to help defend Libya’s rebels against Qaddafi.

The United Nations created a NO-FLY zone over Libya. They hope that would stop Qaddafi’s attacks from the air. The U.N member countries including the U.S may attack Qaddafi’s planes to prevent them from bombing rebel cities.

A few weeks ago warplanes from France and the United Kingdom struck Qaddafi’s military bases in the east and west. U.S warships and submarines fired more than 100 missiles at Libyan government targets.

The U.S President Barrack Obama stressed that the U.S has not declared war on Libya. The U.S will support the militaries of other countries in the fight against Qaddafi’s forces. Missiles and much more America’s firepower will be loaned to other governments ready to help protect Libya’s people.

Thousands are fleeing the country to escape the violence. The U.S has warned Qaddafi that bruce force will not be tolerated. Members of Libya’s governments refused to harm their citizens so they joined the protests.

Article by Selena

Our fifth and sixth grade English classes have been working on newspaper articles, and this was written by Perkins 5th grader Selena Figueroa. She is now an expert on Selena Perez. Enjoy!

Selena Quintanilla Perez

Selena was born April 13, 1971 in Lake Jackson, Texas. Selena was an amazing dancer and singer; she had a lot of talent. Selena was a Mexican Latin-American singer and she was really famous.
Selena started singing when she was six. When she was nine she was in a family band called “los Dinos”, that means “the dinosaurs”. In the was her father , Abraham Quintanilla, her mother, Marcela Quintanilla, her sister, Suzzette Quintanilla, and her brother Abraham Quintanilla junior the third. Selena attended O.M Roberts Elementary school in Lake Jackson. At age eleven she had became a star.
Selena ran away at age 21 and got married to Chris Perez. She ran away to get married to Chris Perez because her father didn’t want her marrying him. Selena got married in Corpus Christi.
In 1995 Yolanda Saldivar, the founder of Selena fan club and manager of Selena’s clothing boutiques shot her at the Day Inn hotel in Corpus Christi. Yolanda was jealous of Selena so she started stealing money from the fan club. When fans started to complain, she was questioned by Selena and Abraham Quintanilla, she denied taking it. At a later date she called Selena and asked to meet her at Days Inn hotel to discuss the financial issue at hand. As they proceeded to talk they started to argue, and when Selena went to leave she was shot in the back. Selena managed to escape into the lobby where she named Saldivar as the killer. An hour later Selena died in a local hospital because of loss of blood. Selena died March 31, 1995 at 1:05 pm.

Lots of people were very sad that she died. 34-year old Yolanda Saldivar was sent to jail for 30 years. Selena died two weeks before her 24th birthday. George W. Bush declared April 16, “Selena Day” in her honor. Selena was an important national figure because she was the first American-born Latina singer.

Silly Willy

A poem by Joshua Curtiss, Perkins 5th grader

Silly Willy
Silly Willy is so skilly,
He’s so skilly that he gets me chilly,
Willy’s chellow is so mellow it’s
so mellow that it might turn yellow,
sore, core, trees galore DJ’s dance
on the dance floor
Jack, Nack, No Tic-Tac, just don’t
don’t squat you’ll break your back,
Look, Brooke on a log, on a log
like a frog, on the log like a frong
in the frog, Silly Willy is not silly
just his name is very nifty.
