By: Tori Lawrence Everybody loves summer! What’s better than a break from school, a sweet vacation, and most importantly relaxing! But, sometimes it is hard to think of things to do that would make this summer memorable. Don’t we all want to have the best summer ever! So, I gathered some fun ideas that will help you knights out with your summer plans. Write down the ones you definitely want to do and make it happen! Some of these will include your besties or bros, so be sure to make them aware of your outrageous ideas for this break. 1. Have a photo shoot with your friends! There are a ton of cute ideas on Pinterest 2. Go camping, set up a tent, and have a camp fire with some delicious s’mores 3. Have a movie night, invite your family or friends and vote on a movie 4. Have a water balloon fight all around the neighborhood, park, the beach, any place that’s not indoors 5. Block party! Get more connected to your neighbors and have some fun 6 Have a sleepover! This is a great chance to spend time with your friends and even do some of these things on the list 7 Gather your family or friends and have a cooking challenge. A fun idea is to play Chopped, a show on food network, it is fun and competitive. Once you’re done cooking, have a picnic and try everyone’s food while enjoying the beautiful scenery 8 Don’t forget to do some CHARITY work, it is great to give back to the community, and this is a perfect time to do it! Once you try it, you’ll have fun and want to do it again. Volunteering gives you a good feeling inside. I hope you all enjoyed these ideas and have a wonderful, fun-filled summer! Summer Sports By: Rohan Patel This summer there are many sport events going on. The first thing going on is the UEFA champion’s league where the best teams compete for a trophy to prove that they are the best of all. For example, Barcelona, Manchester city and United, Real Madrid, and many others will compete. The next summer event going on is the NBA championship in the conference finals. For the west conference it is Golden State Warriors vs. the Houston Rockets with the Golden state Warriors up in the series 3-0. In the eastern conference finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. the Atlanta Hawks. The Cavaliers are up in the series 2-0. The next is the Stanley cup finals with New York Rangers vs. the Tampa Bay Lightning. Then, it is the Anaheim Ducks vs. The Chicago Blackhawks. That should keep you sports fans busy for a while. Have a Great Summer!

ACP Junior High-Oakland Mayor’s Teen Town Hall Get your Good On! May 25, 2015 Community News NNnnNewNewNew ACP Takes on Teen Town Hall Written by: Stormy Light A few ACP students had the opportunity to attend discussions at Chandler City Hall. They were able to engage in conversations with students from other schools and voice their opinions on important topics. The issues included STEM education, teen racism, domestic violence, and under-age drinking. Between fun conference meetings and “ice breaker” activities, speakers discussed community involvement. Students finished up by presenting their ideas and the council members will consider them. In the fall, some of these may be put into action. Nice job ACP students! Learn about YOUR City Hall.
