YOU + Vacation + the Panther Press

Friend

by Morgan Coffey

You took me through both the light and dark

But I had to choose one and.. it was hard

I knew you were gonna be there for me no matter what

And you still are to this day

Our friendship is unbreakable no matter who comes into our lives.

We have stuck by each other's side day by day

So many memories flood my brain with laughter and happiness

And I never want that to end

I think that people say that “best friend” is a label

Why do we put labels on people?

Do they help judge others?

People say that others are their friends

and best friends

and then they fight about stupid things the next day

But real friends don't do that

They can go years without even getting into an argument.

Friends are something that should make you happy

and laugh and create millions of memories with.

Friends can make you cry and make you mad

but if you have a true friend you both will always

build

upon the negatives.

Between Shades of GrAy Review

by Bailey Marranca

I just finished reading the book Between Shades of Gray, by Ruta Sepetys. This book is about a 15 year old girl, Lina, her mom and her brother living in Lithuania in 1941. One night the Soviets barge into their home, and take them to be deported to Siberia. The Soviets treat them terribly. Then they make them work for hours a day. Many people die. Lina and her brother just want to find their father, but they know it will be hard to find him. As winter approaches, they are getting more and more cold. Lina’s mom starts getting sick, and Lina and her brother are trying to help her stay alive, and they have to provide resources for themselves.

Between Shades of Gray was a very sad novel. I would rate this book a 5/5. I couldn't put this book down! I would recommend this book if you like sad stories.

Faceless Book Review

by Jodie McGee

The book Faceless by Alyssa Sheinmel is a story about a teenage girl, Maisie, who seems to have her life perfectly put together. She is on the track team, has an amazing best friend, and a boyfriend who had just asked her to prom.

Everything fit together like a puzzle in her life. But one morning as she's out running, one strike of lightning sends her puzzle piece life spiraling out of proportions.

With second degree burns along her arms, and electrical burns to her face, she was in an induced coma for weeks. Part of her face was destroyed and won't ever heal, but a rare opportunity opens up for her. A face transplant. It's a difficult decision, but in the end the makes the decision any person would make.

But her life after the operation is far from perfect.

In my opinion, Maisie is a great role model. She went through a tough time, came close to giving up on, but still came out stronger than before.

This book teaches everyone what it's like to have your life fall apart, and the long, hard journey in putting the pieces back together.

Art In Our School

Here are four outstanding works of art that Mr. McCaffery's 6th Grade students drew for a homework assignment. They had to take any three objects from home and place them on a table in front of them and draw them realistically. They also had shade and add color with colored pencil, including shadows and highlights to make them appear 3D. These students did an amazing job.
