LGMS is helping those in need! With our funds, we can help an LGMS family restore some of their belongings that were unfortunately lost in a fire. By helping this family, the Student Council had an emergency meeting to brainstorm some ideas for fund-raising. All of the events and ideas were entirely created by the students of LGMS. Mrs. Gahart, the Student Council leader here at LGMS, says "The kids really got involved with all of the ideas, and created all of the events.”
As a school, we doubled our goal, and received nearly $2,800! Great job LGMS!!!! With a generous donation from the eighth grade Delta house, we reached our goal to help the family in need! The Student Council brainstormed the different events that LGMS would support, and they were quite creative! With all of the wacky hats, pajamas, and tropical outfits last week, LGMS supported the family and cared for our community.

LAKE GENEVA, WI- The dab is completely overrated! Should we stop it or substitute it?
Most of the time, people overuse the dance move, and then it belly flops. BIG TIME! Here are some dance moves that aren’t completely obnoxious to get rid of the dab !
1) The Macarena. You know, the one where you put your arms out, then cross them, then put them on your head? (It’s kind of the move that no one knows how to do, but everyone does it anyways…)
2) The Sprinkler. Let’s go old school for a minute, how about that? This is where you put one hand on your head, stick your other arm out, and move it. If you’re confused, ask your parents. (I’m sure they did it...) Again, it’s the dance move that looks ridiculous, but it's somehow everyone's “go-to” on the dance floor.
3) How about the floss? Ask almost any LGMS student how to do it, and many kids say that it’s better than the dab. Also, the floss doesn’t cause injuries like the dab did…
4) Harlem Shake. You know, the one where you get out in the middle of the floor and suddenly everyone starts having a muscle spasm?
5) Shopping Cart. Let’s be honest, the shopping cart looks ridiculous, but no one has ever been to a dance where that move hasn’t been pulled off...
Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new

Smartboards? Or are they
(So called) "dumb boards"...
BY: KATIE HARRIST
LGMS, LAKE GENEVA- SMARTboard: Definition-“The interactive whiteboard that is touch-sensitive and uses sensors for detecting user input.”
That is the current definition of a SMARTboard, but some may contradict that statement…
Mrs. Wade, a sixth grade teacher here at LGMS, states, “It is usually when it won’t stay oriented with my writing that I get mad at my SMARTboard.” Although SMARTboards can be frustrating, many teachers are glad we have SMARTboards. Mrs. Pettijohn, a seventh grade teacher, says, “It is a great learning tool for kids, and I use it almost everyday.”
Many teachers around our school would agree with both of these teachers that the interactive board can be frustrating, but also extremely helpful. So, are there any tips and tricks for the teachers who get frustrated at their boards? Yes! Mrs Pettijohn gave out some of her favorite tips she has learned while using her board. The first tip she gave us was this: “I use Notebook 15 for most of my science classes.” She also shared: “I convert the files to a PDF to use on classroom as well.” Although these SMARTboards can certainly be frustrating for our teachers here at LGMS, they are also very helpful, as Mrs. Wade indicated: “I am very grateful to have it and it is a great tool for teaching.” While the boards can thwart our teachers’ skills on helping us grasp their subjects sometimes, it would also be difficult to not have the SMARTboards at all. While some students enjoy watching the comedic sight of their teachers arguing with a board, many students agree that the slow moving process can deter learning skills. So what do you think of the school's SMARTboards? Email us with your opinions at firstname.lastname@example.org

There is always that one person who isn’t related to you, but looks exactly like you! That is a "Doppelganger." Every week there will be a new LGMS match. This week, we have Emma Czyznik, and Helena Kaphengst.
Scroll down to read more of this short story!
The end of the day is my favorite, and I don’t think that I need to say why. Walking home, I was super alert for anything that could pose a threat. I thought that I was safe, but we all know that that’s not possible. I was almost home, taking a shortcut through the park, thinking that I was safe for the night, but no. One second I’m safe, and the next I’m surrounded by football players. And of course, who elso would be leading the pack except Briannah and her "mighty quarterback boyfriend?"
“You knew the consequences, yet you still disobeyed our rules," Briannah says. "You know what happens to stupid people like you when you talk to your excellencies like that? Now it’s time to pay the price.” If looks could kill, then I would have been dead right then.
I barely heard what Briannah was saying because I was only focusing on how many times a week this happens. The least painful punishment that they have given me was a black eye and a sprained ankle. Two football players each grab one of my arms and hold me steady for the gut-wrenching blows about to barrel into me. Briannah got ready to get in a good punch right in the gut when I said,
“Why? Are you gonna plead that I don’t do this, that I’m better than this, just so you don’t get your punishment?”
I ball my hand up into fists so tight that my nails start to cut into my skin. This has happened too many times now, I think. I try to stand up for myself, but only to get thrown back to the ground for even trying. “You’re not going to do this.”
“Excuse me?” Briannah asks trying to hide her confused expression with a sneer.
“I said, 'You’re not going to do this.' None of you will.”
“Really? And what makes you think that?”
“I’m not going to let it happen again.”
“You’ve got no power to stop me. I rule you. Hold her.” She commands.
“No.” I ball my fists even tighter so that my palms start to bleed.”I’m done with you. I’m done with all of you.”
“Ha! You think that you can just walk away? Well you’ve got nowhere to go.”
“I don’t need to go anywhere to stand up to you.” I yank off the football players holding me.
"I’m tired of being your little puppet.”
“No. You shut up and listen for once! You know, I’ve tried to stand up for myself, only to get pushed down every time.”
