The worldwide phenomenon of “The Hunger Games” continues to set the world on fire with “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,” which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage. “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Danny Strong and Peter Craig and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the third in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 65 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.
Advanced Art project: Due today. The art project for the advanced art students’ pieces will be displayed during the Musical performance. We have to make a project or sculpture having to do with the musical, High School Musical. So please come and support, come, see, and enjoy our projects, especially mine.
Step Team: The Steppers will meet after school until 4:30 every Monday and Tuesday except next Tuesday, Nov.11 because we have that day off. Will meet unless told otherwise.The Steppers do a lot of moves all together with a simple beat. People in the Steppers, remember that you need black and white camo pants, black(no designs) combat boots, and black and white bandanas. ATTENTION!
Dance Team: Dance Team isn’t all about dancing, it’s more than that. We are family. We dance, laugh and have fun, especially at basketball games. Dancing at the games is fun. The moment when you you hear the crowd roar, it makes you feel great. I’m glad I have the chance to be a part of something wonderful.
