Timber 's Advice for LGMS students
In This Edition:
“When given the choice between being right and being kind, choose kind.” This is the main theme of the widely known book, Wonder, By R.J. Palacio. Recently, the contemporary classic was turned into a movie starring Jacob Tremblay, Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson. This year, some 5th grade classes went to Wonder: The Movie after reading the book with their teachers.
In our opinion the movie was heartwarming. It is a great movie that anyone at any age could enjoy. Kennedy Monge, a 5th grader at Eastview who got to see the movie with her class, shares her opinion about the message of the movie, “I think ‘choosing kindness’ is important to kids today because I feel like if people always judge others by their appearance, and if you’re kind to people they're going to want to be your friend.”
In Wonder: The Movie a 10 year old kid named August (Auggie) Pullman with a facial deformity starts his first year of 5th grade. He is absolutely petrified and his parents are hoping that the children will be nice to him. Later on in the movie Auggie meets Jack Will, who gives him a tour of the school along with Charlotte and a bully named Julian. As the movie continues there are emotional twists and turns. In the end Auggie becomes confident and proud to be himself.
What viewers can take away from this inspiring film is to be kind to everyone. everyoneBecause it's not enough to be kind. One should be kinder than needed.”

This year’s Lake Geneva Area Band's winter concert was a success! The Lake Geneva Middle School Music department has been working hard to learn and study new music to perform for our community. With the winter concerts in the rear view windows, their next destination is to grow deeper in their music careers. In preparation for local and district solo and ensemble, the music department has showed their integrity by learning challenging music that will assist middle school musicians in their learning growth.

The six-grade boys started off with a great season! They worked really hard and showed lots of improvement. Mr. McGrath, Mr. Joss, and Mr. Ocker are three coaches, they love to see the six-graders show great team work. The six-grade boys may not play games against other schools, but the talent shown on the floor against each other was impeccable. Sixth-graders look forward to playing next year. The dedication during practice definitely showed on and off the court.
Seventh and eighth-grade basketball has showed lots of improvement since last year. They ended their season great! It was the first time that the seventh-graders competing against other schools, and they did very well at doing it. Although, they compete against other schools, they also play games with each other. Mr. Ocker and Mr. Both work very hard and they can’t wait to work with the new seventh-graders next year. The eighth-grade coaches are Mr. Kirst and Mr. Martin. They know that the eighth-graders will do amazing in high school if they keep working hard.

Brown sugar, butter, chocolate, oats, and peanut butter. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like the best combo ever. And the best part, as usual, is that it’s gluten free. It starts with….
1 cup packed brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
1 cup softened butter margarine
4 cups oatmeal
1 cup chocolate chips (12 oz. bag)
¾ cup peanut butter (optional)
Cream together sugars and butter. Stir in oatmeal. Pat into jelly roll pan (15½ x 10½ in.) bake for 12 mins. at 350 degrees. While still hot, pour on chocolate chips and softened peanut butter. Spread until smooth. Refrigerate until firm. Enjoy!

DITCH WHEAT AND EAT!
BY: TIMBER THE WOLF
Q: How can I get better grades in math, and what are good study skills/ideas?
A: We thought this was an important question, so we decided to ask Mrs. Walser. If you are having trouble with math, don’t be afraid to ask your math teacher questions! If you feel stupid for not understanding-don’t! You need to understand those concepts. Whenever the teacher tells you that you will be having an upcoming test, write it down in your student planner. Once you have it written down, I suggest taking home your math book and your notes, and doing some problems.
Q: How do you tell someone you like them?
A: First of all, we recommend not taking a direct approach. But there are some other ways. First I would give them a low-pressure decision, such as “Do you want to go to Starbucks sometime?” Also, try to casually get their cell phone number, so you could text them time and dates for when you want to hang out. But if none of that works, get a parrot and then train that to tell your crush that he/she has a secret admirer. Good Luck!!!
