How to Remain Focused at the End of the School Year

By Sam Ortiz

 It’s springtime. The year is coming to a close and it’s easy to fall behind. Here are some ways you can refocus yourself
1. Make to-do lists for yourself. It’s a good way of keeping track of the tasks you need to accomplish. Whether it’s schoolwork or daily tasks, writing a to-do list ensures you won’t forget anything you need to do.

2. Schedule your day. If to-do lists don’t work for you, and you need something a bit more precise, you could schedule your day by designating specific tasks to specific times. Whenever I do this for myself, I find that it helps me more easily motivate myself to get up and do things.

3. Take breaks every once in a while. It’s easy to fall into the mindset that breaks can do more harm than good. Letting yourself relax every once in a while will improve your productivity and quality of work in the long run. But also remember- too much of a good thing can turn out to be bad, so balance your working and resting sessions evenly.
Hopefully these tips will help you. 

Do your best and remember that summer is not too far away!

Holiday Fun Around the World!

International Holiday Traditions
By Sam Ortiz

     The winter months are an exciting time of the year for many people in the United States
      This particular season has a large amount of holidays jam packed into a small amount of time. Christmas in particular is celebrated by many people here, and with most holidays come traditions to go along with it. 
     New Years in the US has the famous ball drop in Times Square and Christmas in the US is well known for its garish sweaters, caroling, trees, and sparkly decoration used by many of those who celebrate it, but what is the holiday season like in other parts of the world?
     Like lots of other European countries, Hungary has Christmas, too. It’s a bit different from Christmas in the US, though. On December 6th, children set out their shoes for their version of Santa Claus to hopefully come fill with small treats. Though their version of Santa comes on the sixth, the most important day of Hungarian Christmas is December 24th. On the 24th, Hungarians put up and decorate the tree, prepare the holiday meal and exchange gifts.
      A common Christmas starting meal or lunch in Hungary is halászlé, a spicy fish soup, as they tend to abstain from meat on Christmas. A common dinner could be stuffed cabbage followed by a dessert called mákos guba, a sort of bread pudding.
     In the Seychelles, Christmas seems to be more of a religious holiday than in the US. As many people who live there are some sort of Christian, midnight church service on December 24th is very popular with another happening the next morning. Apart from the obvious difference in climate, as the Seychelles are in the southern hemisphere, Christmas is not much different than it is in the US. They put up trees and get together with family and friends all the same. Though, Christmas festivities continue into January and end on the 2nd.
     New Years is a very eventful time of the year in the Philippines. Filipinos celebrate New Years with a nice dinner, fireworks, and a long list of superstitions to keep in mind. These superstitions come into contact with all facets of the new year. Related to food, a noodle dish called pancit is made to represent a long life, and food made from sticky rice is made so good luck will stick around. 
     Foods that Filipinos avoid at new years are fish and chicken because they’re representations of food scarcity. Filipinos have more than just food to worry about in the new year, though. They also have to rush to pay off any debts they might have because it’s believed that any financial habits they have will continue into the next year. To attract more wealth in the new year, Filipinos also wear polka dots because round things are said to signify prosperity. Coins are also left about the house also to attract wealth. New Years in the Philippines is anything but a quiet event. Noise is important during the New Years because it’s said to drive away evil spirits.
     Every country has its own set of traditions during the holidays but the trend of spending time with loved ones during them seems to be consistent throughout. Happy holidays to everyone and the people they care about.

   How big was the largest moth you’ve ever seen?
   The largest moth in North America is the cecropia. These moths are part of the silk moth family and can be anywhere from five to six inches in wingspan. Cecropias are said to be common, but you may not see them often because they are nocturnal.
   Their wings are a grayish-brown color with the base of their forewings being the same red color as their bodies and having an orange stripe near the edge and an orange teardrop shape closer to the center. The edge of the forewing has a wavy white line and a black circle.
   The hindwings of the cecropia look very similar except for the absence of the black dot and a white stripe directly above the orange one.
   Its antennae are, just as all moths’ are, feathered. The body of the cecropia is a bright red color accented with white and dotted with black down the sides of its furry-looking abdomen.
   Moths are commonly known to have scales on their wings, but what about that fur you see on some kinds’ bodies? This “fur” is actually just more scales. Research has shown that these scales can absorb sound and allow them a better chance against predators that use echolocation, like bats.
   However, even if a cecropia manages to avoid death by bat, it won’t live for long. Cecropias can only eat when they are caterpillars. Cecropias, and a few other kinds of moths, lose their mouth during their metamorphosis. Cecropias cannot eat and can only live for about two weeks.
   In those two weeks that a cecropia is fully grown, it only has one objective: to find a mate. Cecropias can lay up to 100 eggs in a batch, though most won’t survive until adulthood.
   Cecropia caterpillars right after they hatch are black. As they go on and molt a few times, they grow in size and eventually change colors to green. Then, when they are ready, they spin their cocoon and begin the cycle again.
   The life of a cecropia may not be very long, but these beautiful bugs are much more than the stereotype of the ugly and plain-looking moth everybody knows.
  Beware of the Cecropias!

Happy Halloween!

Tome Raiders Repeat!

Posted 2022-06-20 06:29:29 | Views: 275

     In a move reminiscent of the mid-eighties Lakers, the Morrisville Tome Raiders repeated their place ranking during the 2022 Reading Olympics competition.
    Led by team captain Aisha Moundir, the Tome Raiders cemented their place in annals of Reading Olympics' history.
    "She is pretty much the James Worthy of the team," said co-advisor Ken Kelman.
     The team competed in a Kahoot style question format, vanquishing their opponents, like the Lakers smashed the Celtics in 1984.
     "It was a total team victory," said co-advisor, Traci Coley. "The students knew their stuff."
     The students hope to earn a Three-peat next year under the leadership of new captain, Olvia Bielawski.

     First Annual Summer Reading Book Fair

By Jade Perry
       On Wednesday, June 8 and Thurday June 9,, all students 5-11 grades of Morrisville were given the opportunity to select their own book for this year’s summer reading assignment.
      A book fair was set up in the media center with various donated books for the students to pick from. While students are permitted to keep their book permanently, returning their summer reading book for future students will get them extra credit on the summer reading assignment next year, making a great way to start off the year with a head start!
       Many students had positive things to say about the book fair. 
       Haris Qazi said “The book fair is a very inspiring place.”. 
      “I think the book fair is very helpful because we get to pick what we read.” Casandra Ulysse said when asked her opinion on the book fair.
      While the book fair idea was generally well received by students, it was not without its critics. According to Amya Pathirana, “[The book fair] is the most ridiculous thing ever, we are too old for this.”
      Eric Sewell also had more to add, “The book fair was like rain: once you go in it doesn’t get better.”
     "It is a nice thing to do," said Kaylee Searle 
     Jon Gilkeson added that the book fair was very delicious. 
      The book fair offered students with a lot of freedom of choice over what they read for the summer, and the book fair assignment itself is even more open, giving the students several options as to what assignment they can complete about their chosen book. 
     From writing a rap about their book, to illustrating a comic of key scenes, the students of Morrisville Middle/Senior High School are given the choice to select the assignment that works best for them. Many students are sure to enjoy their newfound freedom of choice in this year’s summer reading project
