Heroes and Cool Kids!
by: Jordan F.
In 6th grade, on Thursday February 7, there was an assembly in 7th period on the colt’s side and 8th period on the Pegasus side. It’s called Heroes and Cool Kids. What’s it about? You ask. Well, a few high school teenagers come in to your class, and tell you to move into a "U" position. Then they tell you about themselves, and share real life situations they were in. If you think this is boring just wait, the fun comes next.
After the stories came games. The first game we played was the human knot. This game is played with a group of at least 8 people. We all hold hands with the people across from each other, and create a knot. Now, we must try to get untangled. My group couldn’t get untangled, and it was really funny. The next game we played was people machine. This is played with 7 people. We all stood in a line, and the first person had to make a strange noise and a motion to go with it. Mine was a cat claw and a loud meow. I have to tell you, some of them were pretty funny. The last game we played was the name game. This game is played with, again, 7 people. We all had to say a word with the first letter of our names flowed by our names. Then we had to say the other person’s name and ours. It was really fun. After games it got a lot more serious.
Next, we talked about staying fit and healthy. Soon we filled out a bulling paper that was very personal, but no one would read it. If you liked this program, don’t worry. There will be 2 more sessions sometime this year. Until then, remember to be a hero and a cool kid!
Wayne Evening With The Arts
Wayne Evening with the Arts is a music based event where music players and groups collaborate to make one night jam packed with music. This event is held every year at Wayne Hills High School. There were various types of music and music makers from elementary school to high school, from rock bands to HS Winter guards to orchestras. This night was one that music enthusiasts shouldn’t miss. Wayne Evening with the Arts is run by Tri-M members, which are actually Wayne Hills High School students. Since there are so many musical communities taking part of this event, there were only 15 minute time slots, with many groups over lapping each other playing music in the various rooms of Wayne Hills. I myself was part of this program; I played the cello for the All Wayne Strings Orchestra. My brother was actually part of the Sax quartet, directed by Mr. Scott, who some people at Anthony Wayne might know. Wayne Evening with The Arts is definitely an awesome event, stop by next year if you missed it! If you yourself are a music fanatic, you won’t regret it.
