Come See Peter Pan

Long Island City - The Theatre Club is doing a play, Peter Pan! The club is run by the 8th grade Social Studies teacher Mr. Quaintance. The choreography is run by Mr.Ross. The music director is Ms. Kimble. We have all of our wonderful actors and actresses played by students. We also have the very helpful crew of students that helps the director with the audio, the set and many other things.
We have interviewed some students from Peter Pan Jr about their experiences. Cassius Quinn Candall who plays Michael in the play said: “Getting to work with everyone is fun because its funny to see people in their character in the middle of scenes because it feels like you are in a different world. Peter is the funniest character to watch because he is kind of ignorant and childish, because Peter is always full of himself and all the characters are acting grown up, even though they are kids.” So Cassius is very excited to contribute to this amazing play.

Then Dashiell Fisher who plays Tootles in the play said: What’s fun about the play is that I’m with my friends and I can interact with them more and I’m in a play. The funniest character to me would be Smee because he is kind of the childish character and that makes him funny.” Therefore, you can see that this play can be really fun and creative.

So, there you go! Come see the show for yourselves! We’d love to see your happy faces in our auditorium. It’s a great show and you’ll love it. With lovely songs and awesome characters, this show will be an amazing one. You can reserve your tickets here. . Hope to see you there!

Disney Channel Character from “Andi Mack” comes out as gay, and other LGBT characters.

By Dash Fisher

Hunters Point Community Middle School - It’s your neighbourly and friendly friend here, Dash! In the show Andi Mack, a character comes out as gay to his friend. Here are my thoughts and feelings about it.

Andi Mack is a Disney Channel show about tweens going through middle school. Starring Peyton Elizabeth Lee as Andi Mack, Andi Mack is turning 13 when her older sister Bex returns home. Andi goes through her teenage life, with the help of her family and her friends Cyrus and Buffy, on top of coping with the discovery that Bex is actually her mother and that her mother Celia “Cece” is actually her grandmother, and managing her crush on classmate Jonah Beck. While another one of Andi’s friends, Cyrus, also has a crush on Jonah.

So, in the show Cyrus comes out as gay. Gay is the G in LGBTQ+. LGBTQ+ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and the plus stands for other sexualities/genders including but not limited to Pensexual, Asexual, and Intersex.

Long Island City - The multi-million dollar series from Marvel Studios, Avengers, is returning with a bang, releasing Avengers: Infinity War on April 25, 2018.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the new films are bringing back old characters from previous movies and introducing new characters, a few who have never made a screen appearance in a Marvel movie.

The movie follows the storyline that all of Marvel's superheroes must come together to fight Thanos, an intergalactic villain with the powers of the universe, before he destroys earth and the universe as we know it.

Thanos is expected to set high standards for villains to come. “I wanted to turn Thanos into the Darth Vader for a new generation. He’s an incredibly intense character. In other words, he is sociopathic. He takes no prisoners. I think the audience needs to be prepared when they go see these movies,” said director Anthony Russo in an interview at San Diego’s…

Long Island City - Hunters Point Community Middle School has been on a diverse amount of trips this year which include the 7th grade overnight Ramapo trip, the 6th and 7th grade American Museum of Natural History visit, The Met, the trip to see the movie Wonder, and last but not least the Quartz (news blog) trip our school blog went to. Hopefully, there are more trips to come throughout the year!

The purpose of these excursions are usually for observation, non-experimental research, educational purposes, or to provide students with experiences outside their everyday activities, such as going camping with teachers and their classmates.

Also, the NEA (National Education Association) surveyed 400 adults and 89% of them said that “educational trips had a positive impact on their education and career because the trips made them more engaged, intellectually curious and interested …
