    Hearts of Champions


    Q: What did the team most improve on? A: Definitely communication. We learned to talk on the field in order to support each other and make smart plays.

    Take it from Ms. Vane, she is very proud. Great season, lady Rams! Let’s see if the soccer team can keep our winning streak alive.

    -Natalie Shumaker



    This has been a great year so far for the Rams. The softball team brought home another County Championship for the second year in a row. This was also their second consecutive undefeated season. Our basketball teams also had great seasons. The girl’s team made it to the playoffs. I interviewed Ms. Vane, the assistant coach of the girl’s softball team, to see

    what she had to say about the amazing softball season. Q: What was the hardest team you guys played? A: James Madison which was the team we had to play for the county championship. Q: Who hit the most homeruns? A: Probably Taylor Ivey, but we had a lot of great hitters this year like Savannah Welch, Katelyn McDermott and Brooklynne Smith.

    ICE! Is a tourist attraction in National Harbor owned by Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center. It is a large building filled with ice sculptures, featuring “Christmas Around the World” (2016 only). Inside it is 9 degrees. Fahrenheit! Tickets are 21 dollars for children and 29 dollars for adults.

    The team who carved ICE! Traveled all the way from China just to carve it. There are ice slides, sculptures, live carvers, and at the very end, a life size nativity that takes your breath away. The exhibit was up from November 17 to January 1, so definitely plan to go next year!

    Study Tips Have you ever tried to study for a test, but just couldn’t memorize what you needed to

    know? That has definitely happened to me. To study for a test, you have to know the basics and the very important details of what you’re learning. It is hard to study for tests sometimes, though, since you don’t know what the questions are going to be. Luckily, there are some tips and tricks to help you study for your test, and you just might ace it!

    If you know about a test ahead of time, you shouldn’t just do one big study session, and science proves it! You should have somewhat short study sessions, around 10 minutes, and that will help you a lot. Also, pulling all-nighters won’t help at all. This will not help your memory, so if you can, study everyday that you possibly can for a certain amount of time. Flashcards are actually a great way to memorize what you need to know for a test/quiz. With flashcards, you can focus on one part of the lesson, and if you cannot fully explain what you have learned, you do not fully understand the subject/lesson. In that case, keep studying. In my opinion, flashcards are my favorite type of study strategy. This is because they are fun, they test you on if you actually know what you need to know, and if I get a lot of questions wrong, you know what you need to work on. Flashcards are perfect for studying! My friends love to play games right before tests. This helps them remember their vocabulary words very, very well. Hopefully these tips will help you do great on your very next test!

  • Hidden Figures Review

    Hidden Figures was a great movie. It shows how women can do anything that they set their minds to. The movie takes place in 1957, and it is about three women who are determined to work at NASA. The movie is centered around mathematician, Katherine Goble, and she has to deal with discrimination from her coworkers. I think that the movie was amazing, and it led you into Katherine’s life so that the audience could see how she balanced family life and work. The movie focused on all three women, while keeping Katherine as the main character. The movie showed what African American women had to go through and highlighted the fact that they just were not treated fairly.

    Here’s what some other students here at Ogle thought about the movie: “I really liked the movie because it shows how African Americans were able to accomplish

    their dreams.” -Brittany Durham “I personally loved the movie because it’s showing the viewers the part of history that changed the world for the better.” -Cameren Sitney

    “I think the movie captured the real pain and struggle black people had to deal with in that time period. The movie talked through a black person’s point of view and how it affected them.”

    -Christopher Sitney

    After a couple of the coach questions, I asked some more personal questions. Q: Have you ever played a sport when you were younger? A: I played basketball 5 years for the Atlantic Community College and played against in the UNSS. I also played football for Morgan State and coached for Morgan State. Q: What is your favorite team? A: Philadelphia 76ers, but they aren’t anymore. Q: What was your inspiration? A: When I was a little kid, I loved Julius Erving aka Dr. J. He played small forward and was born February 22. Q: Do you have any final thoughts? A: There is always room for improvement.

    If you want to learn more, talk to him or ask some of his students. -Marc Pineda


    Generations of Social Media There are so many different social media platforms that people use. Each

    generation of people has brought different social media platforms which evolve in different aspects and components. All social media sites have one mission: to be able to share things you do in your life with friends and family. Some of popular platforms are Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest and Snapchat.
