Amazon Rainforest Trial Results by Charles G.

In social studies we just completed a trial for the Amazon Rainforest. The trial was to decide which group of people should get the rainforest. The groups were the rubber tappers, the loggers, the settlers, the ranchers, and the natives. Mrs.Davis was the judge with a gavel and she got to decide who won the trial. Overall the trial was very exciting.

The Social Studies rainforest trial winners in group W are the rubber tappers with 10%, natives with 20%, environmentalists with 30% and with the most rainforest is the settlers with 40%. The winners for group I are the loggers with 5%, the tappers with 5%, the natives with 10%, the settlers with 15%, the environmentalists with 15%, and the group with the most land is the ranchers with 45%. The winners for group T are the natives with 15%, the settlers with 30%, and the group with the most land is the environmentalists with 55%. The winners for group E are the tappers with 10%, the environmentalists with 35%, the group with the most land is the natives with 55%.

OMS New Cafeteria Program by Jessica M.

It’s the first week with the brand new cafeteria program. Here are the few basic steps of this new and improved plan. When you walk in everything’s normal; you get in line and get your lunch. But once you reach the registers everything gets a little bit more complicated. If you look down you will notice a calculator-looking object where it says “enter student ID”. You will then punch in your code and this will allow the cashier to access your account. If you looked on the computer screen you would notice there is your school picture, an amount of money, and all food choices. The amount of money shows how much you have put into your account. Once you buy something the amount will decrease. As soon as an item has been purchased an email gets sent home, telling your parents and guardians what food you have bought and the money left in your account. This new program is a little complicated, but after a while everybody will get the hang of it.
