Advice for the Sixth Grade Year

Advice For The Sixth Grade Year.

In order to have a successful six grade year, you must follow this advice.

First you HAVE to be organized. You are about to enter the land of organization, if you are not organized, doom will await you. Stay organized and be on time to class. Make sure you know your schedule and have everything you need to go to class. After the first couple of weeks of school, teachers expect you to bring everything and don’t let you go back to your lockers for things you forget.

Second, you have to be efficient with your locker. Know your locker combination and keep it safe.. Believe it or not, not knowing your combination can ruin your whole day. Put your combination in a hidden place like a folder so that you are not late to class. If your locker becomes disorganized, you will not be able to find your assignments.

Third, make sure you do your assignments. Do your homework and keep assignments organized. Make sure you know when tests are coming up and study when needed. Getting behind on homework assignments can lower your grade and make your parents mad.

Fourth, be willing to venture out. Be sure to try new things, that the school provides for you. Sign up for new clubs and sports with your friends. It helps if they are there to try them with you.

Fifth, have a plan for lunch. Make plans to sit together with your friends at lunch before the lunch period. It’s really awkward when you have to sit by strangers and have nothing to say. Your lunch period is a great time to chat with your friends and just have a good time.

NBA Playoffs

The NBA playoffs have just started. The 8 teams for the western conference Spurs, Grizzlies, Warriors, Rockets, Mavs, Thunder, Portland, and Clippers. For the East, there is Cavaliers, Pistons, Hornets , Heat, Pacers, Raptors, Celtics, and Hawks.

Currently, Cleveland dismantled the Pistons in 4. 3-2 lead for Hornets against Heat. 3-2 lead for hawks against Celtics. 3-2 lead for Raptors against Pacers. Spurs sweeped the Grizzlies in 4. Golden State beat the Rockets in 5. Thunder beat the mavs in 5. Portland is currently leading the series against the Clippers 3-2.

Injury update. Curry, Curry, Curry. That’s the talk going around the whole league. Why did the Warriors play him? There team was going to beat the rockets anyway, now Steph has sit AT LEAST 2 weeks with a grade 1 MCL sprain. Also for the Clippers, Chris Paul broke his hand and Blake Griffin has a quad injury. This will hurt their team.

This year’s playoffs are going to be interesting. The only question is, who is going going to lift the Larry O’Brien?

The Liger

His body as strong as metal

and orange

and black

as he passed through the jungle

he looked

and killed a monkey

that was dead and rotten

and I saw the eyes of vicious

and a row of teeth filled with blood

and eyes dark of black

hard, wide, and vicious

then out of the trees

with the three coated fur

walking in trees



he walked — that strange animal

strong as wood, orange, balck

part lion, part cat

part neither– for his blood is cold

Basketball poem




Throwing Flying Wooshing
Flying Wooshing Bouncing
Wooshing Bouncing Rolling
Bouncing Rolling Grabbing
Rolling Grabbing Catching
Grabbing Catching Shooting
Catching Shooting Stuck

by Lauren Washington


I like this poem because this sport is the best sport ever invented. Every day, I always get on court and try to make myself better for the game. I have been playing basketball all of my life since I was little kid and never had a frown. Basketball teaches you discipline, leadership, courage, and many other life essentials.



Fishing. One of the best sports in Texas, filled with beautiful lakes, vast oceans, and narrow rivers, is the best place to be to catch a ton of fish. One of the most common fish in Texas is the largemouth bass.


  1. Lakeway

Lakeway is one of the best places to be, if you wanna catch largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, bluegill, and other perch. If you come on a beautiful sunny day to lakeway, you will catch fish a mile a minute.


2. Galveston






Galveston is one of the best places to fish in. It is right on the coast and easily accessible from everywhere. There are red fish, catfish, crappie, drum, etc.  You can fish there in any weather and always guaranteed a fish


3. Port Aransas



Port Aransas is also another great fishing spot on the coast. It is also very big tournament fishing place. They have a bunch of fish and guaranteed to catch something


Rules Can Sometimes Be Broken

Me and my group wrote a paper

Every rule has an exception. Say you are
in a car driving a pregnant women to the hospital. Do you think she wants you stop at all stop lights, or speed to the hospital? There is always a time when it is okay to break the rules.

Breaking the rules has led to some major changes in the world. Many people have broken rules that were unjust. Today, some rule breakers are known as historical heroes. For example, Gandhi, a peaceful brave protester, broke laws in order to free India from the evil, taxing, tyranny of England. Because the tyrants of England placed major taxes on salt, he walked hundreds of miles from South India to North India to protest the unfair tax on salt. Without Gandhi’s willingness and courage to break the rules, India would still be following Britain’s unjust laws.

Secondly, dress code. Everyone in our school ignores dress code,wearing tank tops, short shorts, fun hats. Being late to class is another rule that is not really followed. Most of those rules are not really taken seriously, and the consequences aren’t very major, if any. It’s harmless to break ridiculous rules like these.

After all, I have also broken many rules, however, most consequences were minor, and sometimes, breaking the rules lead to a mountain of positive and negative changes. In the end breaking the right rules has never hurt anyone too bad.

Super Bowl Champions

Man! Super Bowl 50 was a great game between the 2 phenomenal teams. The Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers.
There was only one winner. That was the Denver Broncos. Denver won by the score of 24 to 10. Let me tell you how the game went this past Sunday.

What happened to superstar quarterback Cam Newton? The night before Cam won Most Valuable Player and Offensive Player of the Year. What could of made this 26 year old wonder fall apart on his amazing year. He has been making plays all over the offense, running and passing. But today wasn’t his day.

Denver, oh man, that team. That defense especially. Every single player making amazing players. I like to name some players of the game including D Ware and V Miller. They killed the game by making awesome plays, like strip sacks and sacks.

Hay Carolina Fans, I told you it’s DENVER TIME.

Super Bowl 50

The Super Bowl is this Sunday. It is the game of the two best teams in the NFL. Or are they? The Super Bowl is between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers. I think the Denver Broncos are gonna win. Let me tell you why.

Defense. Oh man. That’s a hard defense to score on. They are the number one defense in the league. Let me name some people. Von Miller, Demarcus Ware, Chris Harris Jr, Aquib Talib, Derek Wolfe, I could name the whole team and they would all be called stars. They have so much chemistry and teamwork. If  Carolina wants  to score they must be exceptional.

Offense. Oh dang. That’s good offense. They have so many great players. Let me name some, Demarious Thomas, Emannuel Sanders, Ronnie Hillamn, CJ Anderson, and the one and only Peyton Manning.

Sorry Carolina fans, ITS DENEVR TIME.

Our Basketball Game Against Marble Falls

Yesterday, we had our 9nth basketball game of the season against Marble Falls Middle School. The last time we played we got beat by 1 point in a poor and unfocused game by us. We knew that we would have to come in and show them who wants it more. The game is about to begin.

Tip off begins!! The buzzer starts!! We both start off with bad misses. Then they get six straight points. We called timeout. Our coach told us to not think as much, but just play. Then we start scoring. Then they came back. It was a trade off of points.

At the start of the 4th quarter, we were down by 8. We knew that we had to make this our best quarter. We did. We started making out shots and playing good defense.

As of our great 4th quarter, we won by 6.

This game I learned that we should never give up till the buzzer goes off.


People all over the globe wear masks to show their emotions, feelings, and culture.

People wear masks to show their emotions and feelings. Let me tell you some examples. Many sport team fans wear masks to express their emotions and feelings about their team. People also wear masks to not show their true self, personality, virtue, and wisdom to cover up who they really are. People also wear masks to show their culture and religion. People from different cultures show their spirit by wearing masks to show their culture.

Even some days I wear a mask to cover up my true self. It helps me calm down. One day society including me will change, and masks of fear and darkness will be diminished for ever.
