Transforming | An Original Song

By Rene

             I made my song because I like listening to music. I love listening to music because it makes me feel relaxed. Also, I’ve always wanted to make a song. The first part was after the beginning and I made it because I don’t know what people like so I put one part gentle. The last part was relaxing and had more beat to it. Mostly, made the song because I love music.

The score of the  Packers and Cowboys at the end of the first quarter was 7 Packers and 3 Cowboys. The final score was 34 Packers and 31 Cowboys. One of the great plays of the game was when Dak Prescott passed the football to Dez Bryant for a touchdown to tie the game.

LAMELO BALL VS JULIAN NEWMAN



By: Omar Linares

I saw these high school basketball players in youtube and they were amazing at basketball. Those players are Lamelo Ball and Julian Newman. Lamelo Ball plays for Chino Hills high school. Julian Newman plays for Downey Christian High School. I think Lamelo Ball is the best basketball high schooler. I think Lamelo is better because he’s really good at long threes and half court shots. But I think Julian Newman is good too but I think Lamelo is better.

Komodo Dragons


By : Victoria S.

Komodo dragons are amazing reptiles. They can run up to 12 mph. They can be found in the Indonesian islands of Komodo, Rinca, Flores, Gili Motang, and Padar. They are the world's largest lizard, they can grow up to 10 feet in  length, and weigh up to 300 pounds. They can detect odors just like snakes. They use their tongues to pick up the particles in the air, and put them on the roof of their mouth  where it makes contact with the Jacobson Organ. This organ detects smells. Komodo Dragons rely on camouflage and patience when they hunt. They can spend hours staying in the same spot waiting for passing prey. When the victim passes by, they will run at it with their powerful legs then  attack with their sharp claws and sharp teeth. Komodo dragons have 60 teeth. Their saliva has more than 50 kinds of bacteria, some are deadly. You can die by their bite even though it can be a just scratch. You’ll only live for 24 hours. Their prey die by blood poisoning. Komodo dragons can see 900 feet away, but they have bad night vision.  Komodo dragons are amazing but different than the normal reptiles.

NBA HALF COURT SHOTS AND DUNKS


By Rene
These moves are the most exciting part of basketball.  Buzzer beaters are when you shoot the ball and the ball goes in the same time the buzzer goes off. Dunks are when you run and bounce the ball and jump slam the ball in the net. My favorite half court shot was the Memphis Grizzlies shot. My favorite dunk is the alley-oop of Lebron James and Kyrie Irving. I made this video because my favorite sport is basketball.

Water Bottle Flips

By AJ


I've liked watching the water bottle flipping videos on youtube. I decided to make my own water bottle flipping video. I researched about water bottle flipping. I learned that you have to flip the water battle when it's upside-down in your hand.

The second thing that I learn was that you have to flip it really fast. The last thing that I learn is that the easys flip is two 1/2. The end of this video shows me flipping a water bottle using the upside-down in your hand flip.

Sakura Trees


by Victoria



Sakura trees are trees  with pink leaves. Sakura trees are actually are cherry blossom trees  but in Japan they call them Sakura. Sakura leaves are naturally pink. There are  over 200 different kinds of cherry blossom trees with different names. There are Unko, Kwanzan and Shogetsu trees, Each cherry blossom tree might only bloom for up to a week.

Kwanzan trees have the brightest pink cherry blossoms. Unko cherry blossoms are white and Shogetsu cherry blossoms are yellow . Cherry Blossom trees can grow fruit. Cherry Blossom trees don’t live for very long. They live for 30 to 40 years. Most Cherry Blossom flower have five petals but the blossoms on a Kwanzan tree have twenty eight petals on one flower.Cherry Blossom trees usually bloom in early April.  Washington DC and Japan both have the title of "Cherry Blossom Capital of the World." The Cherry blossom is Japan’s national flower. I think they are very beautiful. They are my favorite trees ever!

My Top 3 Plays of NFL Week 2

By Adrian
This week on my top plays of the week I am sharing three of my favorite football plays. My first clip is football players getting ready for a game. Adrian Peterson does pushups to get ready for a game. The second clip shows Peyton Manning throws a pass to Emmanuel Sanders. I like how Payton manning  throws the ball because it was a great pass. My final clip is when Austin Seferian-Jenkins gets a pass from his quarter back. I like how Austin Seferian-Jenkins catches the ball. It was a hard throw and it wasn't easy to catch. I'm excited how these guy are going to do next week .


Fire Alarm System Update

By Jim
At the end of 2015 I improved my fire alarm system. The system has a conventional panel, meaning it has zones. It has two zones and one NAC (Notification Appliance Circuit). In the Winter of 2015 I received a new fire alarm panel. This new panel stays on when I reset the pull station. This makes it safer.

I will have a system test every week on my youtube channel.


Right now, I feel that this system is ok. It only puts out 12 volts DC which is not enough to power some alarms, but it works. I hope in the future to get a better panel that will make the horns that do not work.

What to see more about my fire alarm system? Check my video from 2015

Why Music is Awesome

By Sydney

Music is the best thing ever! There are different kinds of music, like Pop, Country, Rock, Dance and more! I think music helps you concentrate with things you need to focus on.  I listen to it while I am doing my homework.    I like to listen to my favorite artists. Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez. Their songs have meanings that we can all relate to in life. Another thing I like about music is that you can sing to it. If you know the lyrics and are a good singer then you would be good at it.  Also, music can relax you. I sometimes listen to music before I go to bed.  Music makes me happy and I love it.


The Chicago Teams

By Rene

I like the Chicago Cubs because it’s my  home team. The Chicago Cubs are really good and better than the Chicago Sox. They have speed, batting, running, pitching and catching. I also like them because they beat the White Sox 8-1 on July 27th 2016.
I like the BlackHawks. They are really good at blocking shots. They’re best at shooting and speed skating. I also like them because they won two Stanley Cups.
I like The Chicago Bulls. They have really good players. They have the best player Dwyane Wade on the team. Dwyane Wade is really great at shooting and dribbling. I also like The Chicago Bulls because they have awesome defense and offense.

I like The Chicago Bears. They are fast, tough tacklers and great throwers. I also like them because they beat teams that are better than them.

Summer by Sydney

Summer is my favorite season. It always has been. I like summer because you can swim, there’s no school, and my birthday is in the summer! You can also go on vacation. The only one reason I do not like summer is because sometimes it can hit 100 degrees! Then it is steaming hot outside.  The air conditioning  cannot go so high.  But everything else is nice. I love going outside. I also like going to the pool with my friends. I  like ice cream on a hot day. My favorite flavor is  mint chocolate chip. Summer is awesome!


Being Someone Else


By #StarWars1

My class did a unit call Identity Crisis. As part of the unit my teacher told us to write a paragraph about who you wanted to be. This is what I wrote....

I would like to be my mom for several reasons. First of all I would like to be my mom because I would get to be an adult. I wouldn’t have to go to school. I would get to watch movies and TV when I want. I would get to have a job. I could earn cash and spend it on Lego kits like Star Wars. I would get to the movies whenever I want to. I would go see the new Avengers movie and I would get the largest popcorn and a slushy. I would like to be someone but only for one hour.

My Car Project...UPDATE

By #CarGuy



My car project update… 

If you remember from last time, my grandpa bought me a 1971 El Camino for getting good grades. No it is time for my car to get sand blasted. After that all the old paint had to come off before it could get repainted. Then, when it’s done it got towed to the lake house. Next, we put on the front bumper, headlights, the grill and the turn signals. On the back we have to put on the bumper, and brake light covers. We also have to put on the the trim for the bed.  

Be sure to check back soon for another update!

My Homemade Fire Alarm System

By #ElectronicsGuru

Three years ago I started building my homemade fire alarm system.  It started when I got my first pull station.  It was a Fire Lite BG-12.  A month later my uncle bought me a Radio Shack Pizo Buzzer and a 6-Volt battery.  The following year I was able to retrieve four working fire alarms from local building.  I made one into Porta Strobe with a button on the side and three 9 volt batteries hooked up to make it blink.   i got some back boxes and conduit the mount the system on a  wall in my basement.  This year I got a control panel cabinet and we took it off one wall and put it on a bigger wall.  Now I have homemade working fire alarm system made by me!
