Go AMS lady cougars basketball team! Thank you for bringing home another championship!
As most of you know, our lady cougars basketball team has brought home the first conference champ and regular season champ banner/award for the first time in 8 years (2008 was the last time).
The ladies had an awesome undefeated status of 16-0. They wouldn't have been able to do it without their coaches, Mike Watkins and Lauren Powell. These coaches are the best coaches anyone could ever ask for.
This is an incredibly special group of talented girls that were once strangers but are now sisters. Their team captain Porsha Carter stated that; "This season has brought us together so well, but not in a friend way. We have created a sisterhood that is greater and stronger than friends. No one can break this bond!"
Every game they brought their all and didn't give up. They fought through the toughest battles together as a team. They reminded the other schools whose territory they were in, at every home game. They also made new territories at away games. The most important thing is that they stuck together, and became one big family.
I was a proud manager of the team. I looked forward to every game and enjoyed watching them take a dubb every Monday and Thursday, (some tuesdays and Wednesdays)! This is one special group of girls and there will never be another one like it!

Homework diners can be many things. Social hour, free dinner, homework help, and more! I am going to go in depth on all the benefits of homework diners.
1. You can get a free dinner here!!! Before you start your homework you can have an amazing meal made by Mrs. Howard and a bunch of volunteers from the community. If you are wondering the food here is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT from the food we eat for lunch. For example, they have made spaghetti, Hamburgers, Veggie Burgers, Salad, and much more.
2. Are teachers nagging at you to come to class? Well if you can convince your friends to come to Homework Diners, you can get all your homework done and hang out with your friends over some great food.
3. Is the homework just that bit too hard? Well at Homework Diners, you can get the teacher that gave you this challenging homework to help you. If they aren't there, another adult can help!
4. Struggling to keep up your GPA? Come to Homework Diners and get 5 extra points in any class, just for being there. Now isn’t that fun
I asked a few people about their opinion on Homework diners and here is what they said:
First, I talked with the person who inspired me to write this, Mr Bruce Waller. He works for United Way and helps to plan these. I had asked him how he feels about Homework Diners. He said “I feel that it is beneficial to the students and the school in general”. Next, I asked him if he agrees that Homework Diners are a good way to bond with the school. He responded “Yes I do, It is a great way to bond with teachers and a great way for teachers to bond with the parents”. Finally I asked him What would you say to a student to convince them to go to a Homework Diner. He responded with "I think homework diners are a great way for rising 5th graders to get home help from the teachers and a great way to show what happens at our school and community."
What you can take from this interview is that Mr Bruce Waller is super excited about homework diners and wants it to be a place where everyone can eat, listen to music, and just have fun!
