The 30 minute concert was attended by several homeroom classes.
Achieving straight As, or an unweighted GPA of 4.0, is the goal of many high school students. Getting straight As involves a lot of hard work, but it isn't impossible. Here is how I believe you can get all As. Do your homework. The number of students who do not do their homework shocks me. But doing your homework has many benefits and will help keep your grades up. Those five points you receive for a homework check matter, and when you get a 0 out of 5, it matters even more. Doing your homework also helps you learn the information, raising your test and quiz grades as well. Don't procrastinate. Procrastination is the downfall of many high school students who are capable of good grades. When you receive an assignment, do it ASAP. And when you are given the date of a test, start studying immediately instead of waiting and then cramming the night before.

Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. Her chief adversary is her former employer, Arthur Roeder, an idealistic man who cannot bring himself to believe that the same element that shrinks tumors could have anything to do with the terrifying rash of illnesses among his employees. As the case goes on, however, Grace f
The nearly century-long tradition continues with the 98th annual West Lampeter Fair. The fair had a wide range of animal guests, including the big friendly camels, adorable pigs, the jumpy kangaroo, and the gussied-up sheep. Now, of course, it’s not the Lampeter Fair without delicious fair food and the good old tractor show. The fair also had some beautiful views come along with it, and why not share those with everyone? As the fair swept into the evening hours along with it came a beautiful and glorious sunset. The FFA had their world-famous sausage sandwiches that proved to be irresistible. It’s obviously not the Lampeter fair without the traditional annual pig-catching event. The pigs graciously stride among the field while being pursued by little ones with the intent to catch the pigs. You can’t forget the tractor show. Many vehicles were entered, and all became centers of attention for many intrigued visitors. The Lampeter Fair was again a great success, and we are all looking f
