LGMS Faucets or Bust!
LGMS, LAKE GENEVA, WI- Another huge trend from the internet has caught on at LGMS- water bottle flipping. It's been everywhere this year, but is it a good thing?
There have been many issues with this obsession; water bottle flips have been disruptive, loud, and messy. Since school staff has decided to let most students carry around their water bottles there has been chaos
In a few cases, kids will just start water bottle flipping in the middle of class disrupting other students’ learning. Also, there is the problem when the lid is not tight on the bottle before flipping it, creating a huge mess that really shouldn't have happened in the first place.
It doesn’t stop at just water bottles though; internet-crazed kids have started trying to flip school supplies ilike markers, glue sticks, pencils, and binders!!!
Mrs. Pettijohn, an LGMS Science teacher, says “Water bottle flipping is a new fad that has a time and place.”
Many people around the school agree with Mrs. Pettijohn, including seventh grader Mara Crawford adding, “Water bottle flipping doesn’t have a meaning, and is disruptive.”
Another student, who refused to share his name admits, My brother tried flipping my dog…”

LGMS Water Fountains?
By: Katie Harrist
LGMS GYMS- On days when you have P.E., you’ve probably seen the water fountains. Have you noticed how they work- or not- depending on the day? One seems brand new, with a built in water bottle filter, while the other is old, broken, and doesn't even work.
We’ll, it’s safe to say that one of them needs an upgrade! The push handle that activates the water is jammed, and you have to shove your hands to even press the handle! Even just being able to push it is hard!
Next to that one, there is one that is very nice and updated. It includes a slot to fill up your water bottle. I love the counter that reminds me how many plastic water bottles the school has kept harming our community. The new eco- friendly fountain is great, and we should be glad that we are able to have it in our school.
Next time you pass by the gym, make sure to check out the fountains and their distinct difference!
Fun Fact: Mr Nottestad, a sixth grade science teacher, has students fill up his water “jug” sometimes, and he always insists on filling ing it up in the bottle filter in the gym!

Has anyone noticed the new sink faucets? They are so much better than the old ones!
The new sinks are really great because we don't need to keep holding the handles down every time the water turns off.
Do you remember last year how the sink handles would pop back up, and you’d have to practically force your whole arm back down on them to get the water going again?
If you want to see the old sinks, because everyone wants to… make a quick stop by the gym locker rooms! It’s awesome! Only five steps!
One: Grind the faucet handles with all of your strength!
Two: Watch the depressing amount of water come out.
Three: Repeat step one ten more times!
Four: Enjoy your pain and misery as you press down the handles again with your elbows, and slip and smash your funny bone!
Five: Go see the nurse!
These old sinks are not only stubborn, they’re dangerous too!
If you actually like washing your hands, you can find the new sinks pretty much everywhere else in the building! So what is your thought? Do you like these “pain-o-meters?” Or should we contribute to the pain-free-faucets?
