Sixth Grade Play by Sai and Zachary

Sai (Actor):

IMG_6179.JPGThe sixth play was full of humor, entertainment, and education. I can tell that many people in the audience loved the play by their laughter, applause, and the way that they payed attention to it. I personally loved the play, but I was a little sad about my part. I wanted to be Hector, but Elijah got the part and switched to Achilles. 

My favorite part about the play was all the funny songs and dancing. I felt like we did much better on the actual play then the rehearsals. Along with the humor there was historical facts that were well understood to the audience and also entertained them at the same time. I think that is the most important part about a play. The voices of the actors were really loud and clear. The stage crew and sound effects did an amazing job too. In my opinion, the best and most hard working person was Ms. Meindl. She made the whole and had a vision in her mind how it was going to work out, but she used many suggestions from the student changing her vision a little bit which I thought was very nice that she would do that. That is my blog on the sixth grade play.

Zachary (Special Effects):

On Thursday we had the sixth grade play. The 6th graders all got set up for it. The sound effects people were backstage, and the actors were ready to go on stage. It started and everyone was nervous. Great job everyone!! the play was great and the ending was great (though we didn’t get to practice it on the stage). This play was about the Trojan War which you should know is in Ancient Greece and Troy.

The audience was amazed on what we had done and it was a blast. Behind the scenes was amazing too, the special affects people were all set and the audience laughed, gasped and, sang for Mrs. Meindl a Happy Birthday song! Happy Birthday Mrs. Meindl!

Sixth Grade End of the Year Trip - Scandia By:Becky


The Screamer lit up at night
As the year is coming to an end, many are looking forward to their end of the year trips, including myself. Sixth grade is going to Scandia, seventh is going to Sunsplash, and eighth is going to Six Flags. All the trips will be happening on June 11, the last day of school!

I can not wait to visit the exciting place and have a lot of fun with friends before the school year is officially over. I have been to Scandia myself a few times but this time should be extra fun with all of the sixth grade. If you do not know, Scandia, is a mini golf park with a lot of other fun parts such as an arcade, go-karts, batting cages, and some other rides. Some specific things I am looking forward to is the Screamer, a big ride that is like a ferris wheel with only two spots, on the top and bottom. It also spins much faster than a ferris wheel and goes upside down. The other part I am really excited for is the go-karts because I really like racing and I know I will have a lot of fun going against all my friends. What things are you looking forward to on our Scandia trip? I also asked some Leading Edge alumni who went on the trip and they said it was a lot of fun! My older brother, who also went, said, “It’s a great last experience of sixth grade”. In all, I can not wait to finish the year and go have fun at Scandia with all of the sixth grade. I know it will be a blast and I'll see you all there.

  • You'll get a wristband which works for the rides (including The Screamer, Go Karts, and Mini-Golf).
  • Strange but true: If you scream on the Screamer, they will make you get off the ride and stay off of it for awhile. . .
  • If you go on the Bumper Boats, prepare for the possibility of being soaked!
  • If you love the arcade, bring money for more tokens.
  • Bring a sack lunch or money for the snack bar for lunch.
