The Millard Fillmore Trivia Hunt is coming to Woodside – Friday, January 31, 2014 to Sunday, February 2, 2014 with Adjudication on Monday, February 3, 2014.
What is the Millard Fillmore Trivia Hunt you ask…???
It is a weekend-long Academic Trivia Competition that different high schools in the area compete in. Answers must be found for approximately 40 questions on a variety of topics. Answers can initially be found on the internet, BUT, must be backed up and well-documented (MLA style) by hard copy evidence. There are also several “Bring In” items.
It is a lot of work, BUT also A LOT of fun !!!
Questions arrive via email at 3:00pm on Friday and Answer Sheets must be turned in by Sunday at 7:00pm. The WHS Library stays open until midnight on Friday, 7:30am to midnight on Saturday, and 7:30am to 7:00pm on Sunday.
Woodside High School needs your help !!!
Students are encouraged to participate in the Hunt. They can work from 1 hour to as many hours as they want to. It is a fun way for them to learn and/or hone research skills all while supporting the Wildcat Team!!! The school also need students to be part of the main Leadership Team, so if you are interested in that, please let us know.
Copies of the permission slip for students in order to participate are available in the Library and Teacher Work Room.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask teachers Arlene Kolber, Lisa Vasquez or Anne Ken.
This last week I went around and asked people what their craziest dreams were and this is what people responded:
Ms. Bratton: “So I was walking down a street in Manhattan. I knew it was Manhattan because there were skyscrapers around me. There was the Empire State Building, and the World Trade Center, before it went down, and I happened to be walking down a sidewalk and all of a sudden I glanced over and there was this old woman pushing a stroller and people came over and lifted up a baby pram, to say ‘hi’ to the baby, but instead of a baby, there was a devil baby, and the devil baby looked up and said, ‘You’re all going to die.’ And all of a sudden this huge tsunami came over New York and everyone got swept away. Just as I was about to get hit then I woke up.”
Anie Eder: “So I had a dream that I was in a play and I found out that Andy Samberg was in the audience and, like, I got really excited, and I wanted to get his autograph and meet him, butut before I had to perform the play. So when my scene came on, everyone in my scene forgot their lines. My line was really wrong and it was a long tongue twister and I just couldn’t say it properly. So everyone the audience stood up and yelled at us and then stormed out. But at the end I met Andy but he didn’t want to talk to me because I forgot my lines.”
Anonymous Student: “Okay I was walking down a really dark alley and then I just started screaming hysterically and I had no control over it at all. Then this really old guy came up to me and then he started to scream too. Then at least five more people came over and we were all screaming. It literally made no sense at all and when I woke up my throat was hurting. I was just a really weird dream.”
Amaria Majors: I remember this dream I had about this guy that I really like. I’ve had this huge crush on him ever since last year and now we have some of the same classes this year. Anyways I had been thinking about him really recently and I had this dream where we were at lunch. So it was like a normal lunch period and we were in the same place, minding our own business, as we often do in dreams. Then all of a sudden he came up to me and said, ‘Okay we need to talk.’ And I was like ‘no, No, no, no.’ And its ironic because in real life I always want to talk to him, but in this dream I was too afraid to but eventually I gave in and said ‘Okay.’ We sat down and we actually had a meaningful conversation. I didn’t do anything weird or anything like that but it was really meaningful. Eventually I woke up and I was like ‘Did that actually just happen?’ but no it didn’t. Dreams are way better than real life.”
Dreams can be a reflection of anything in your life. Whether it’s school, feeling stressed, or even a crush, dreams are images of the emotions you feel at important times in your life. Say you have a dream about someone you care about, it means that you might have stronger feelings for him or her than you have ever intended. Dreams will also affect the way we will feel about someone in the future. Even though dreams can be about the weirdest things, they can show what we are truly thinking about even if we haven’t realized it yet.
