OPINION PAGE
Movie Reviews
Rachel Gentry
!
Maleficent is a great movie to
watch. At first, I did not want to watch
the movie. I thought the commercial
looked really boring, but my sister went
to see it and she said it was really good.
So, I decided to go see it. After I watched
it, I thought it was really good too. I
think if you have not seen the movie
Maleficent, you should watch it. It’s a
movie about a little girl who is a
sorceress. The movie shows when she
was a little girl to when she was a grown
up. When she was sixteen, she had her
first kiss with a boy named Stefan.
!
When she was older, Stefan
married someone else and she got really
mad. She cast a spell on their baby, but
when she found out that she loved the
baby, she tried to take the curse back but
it didn’t work. For the baby to stay alive,
she has to have a true love’s kiss.
!
Another movie I recommend is
The Fault In Our Stars. I thought it was
an awesome movie about a girl named
Hazel Grace Lancaster who was
diagnosed with cancer when she was
thirteen. She falls in love with a boy
named Augustus Waters. Hazel and
Augustus go to Amsterdam to meet
Hazel’s favorite author Peter Van
Houten. More happens to these two, but
it is not all good.
"
I recommend this movie for
people who love a story from the heart
with a bit of humor too.

Sixth and Seventh Grade
Girlsʼ Basketball Team
Earns Great Season
The seventh grade Busline
League girlsʼ Wildcat basketball
team was able to allow sixth
graders to join the team
because the coach didnʼt have
enough seventh graders. Now,
the seventh grade team has
more than enough players. They
have a total of thirteen girls, five
sixth graders and eight seventh
graders. They are coached by
Mr. John Deetjen. This team has
done well playing good team
basketball. The Wildcat girls
have earned their 11-2 record
(not including play-offs) in the
Busline League this year.
Awesome season Wildcats!
Seventh Grade Boys
Basketball Team
Shows Talent
The seventh grade Busline
League boysʼ Wildcat
basketball team was lucky to
have enough players. They
actually had more than enough,
with 13 boys. Their season
started well. They began the
season playing phenomenal
team basketball with awesome
effort from all players. The other
teams had their work cut out for
them. Our boysʼ have a record
of 10-3 (not including play-offs).
Great season Wildcats.
See you boys next year!
What
Haley Abbott
Says...
I interviewed one of
the six graders from the
girlʼs basketball team,
Haley Abbott, to answer
the questions below:
How do you think the
team played this
season?
“The team played great
and we never gave up
even when we were
down. Also, we did an
awesome job of being
unselfish and playing as a
team.”
If you could tell the
players one thing what
would it be?
“Great job this season!
Also, one more thing,
sixth graders did an
amazing job!”
