Marcos Avila, Freshman and Spanish 1 student, was also enthusiastic about the unit. “It felt good, cause like, it took so long finish this project for him, and then they finally met us, and to share the project with him. He was really excited about it, and it felt really good,” he stated.
“When I walked in the gym, I teared up to see all of these older kids who are in high school, who I’m sure are sort of cool and into their own stuff right now, taking time to be, like, so thoughtful for a little kid that they’ve never met. It means more to these kids than these high schoolers will know. It means a lot,” Ms. Painter concluded.

SLIM SPENDING THIS SPRING BREAK
BY MADELYN DRURY
Milwaukee, Wisconsin isn’t necessarily seen as the warmest place from late March to early April. Being outside when it’s cold, rainy or snowy is miserable- but here’s the thing, it’s Spring Break! Don’t waste a perfectly good break because of the weather. During these times, we are in desperate need of some fun but cheap activities for Spring Break in Milwaukee.
Especially if you reside on Milwaukee’s south side, go to a couple of interesting places to avoid the cold. Go to places like coffee shops to sit down and enjoy some treats and a good conversation with a friend. If you haven’t heard of the Starbucks’ secret menu, it is a must try.
For more information, go to: http://starbuckssecretmenu.net/ Also, go to local cafes like Collectivo, Stone Creek Coffee or Anodyne Coffee in select locations.
The best things that are in Milwaukee are often hidden. These hidden gems make good stories and also, great picture opportunities. Feel free to visit the Safe House in downtown Milwaukee to visit, eat and explore - if you can find it. What’s even better about The Safe House is, you need a password to get in. Even as mean as it sounds- after you get in, you get to watch others make a fool of themselves while they try to get in. http://www.safe-house.com/ Check out the Safe House and become a secret spy while dining.
History of Easter in 100 Words or Less
BY CHEYENNE RUPERT
Easter is held on a Sunday between March 22 and April 25 every year. Easter is one of Christianity's most important holidays, because it is the day that celebrates Jesus Christ's resurrection. The exact history of Easter is still unknown, but some believe that the word Easter derived from the word Eostre, who is a Teutonic goddess of fertility and spring.

National History Day
BY LEONARDO ESPINOZA
What is NHD?
“National History Showcase is a showcase in which students share their research on a historical topic” - Mrs. Holtgrieve - Reagan psychology teacher
The National History Day Showcase is a competition where students get to research a historical topic of their choice. Their chosen topic must be related to the NHD theme of the year, and then they showcase it in one of these ways:
Who Were the Winners?
“We have a whole bunch. We just had our school event, you know,” said Mrs. Holtgrieve.
“They’re done so they’re next step is just to show up at UWM” Mrs. Holtgrieve
The contestants are going to regionals at UW Milwaukee on March 5th. Judges offer feedback and rank the students. The Top Three in each category go to the state competition at UW Madison. Then there is nationals which will be at the University of Maryland. Last year one team from Reagan made it to nationals. The team that won last year was under the documentary category. They were Anna Dannecker and Grace Krug.
National History Day Showcase allows students to show off their research they did on a historically relevant topic. To the people that made it to regionals, we all wish them the best of luck in the regional tournaments.

Saint patrick's Day
BY JEREMY WILL
Saint Patrick’s Day is held on March 17, which is celebrated on the day of his death. It is widely believed that Saint Patrick drove out snakes from Ireland. This would be a little hard for him to do. Scientists believe that snakes have never been in Ireland since the ice age, due to the cold. It is just the celebration of the foremost patron saint. People celebrate it by wearing green and going out to drink, but in Ireland, it is a highly religious day, where there is little to no drinking. Also, his saint color was blue, green only being affiliated due to the Irish independence in the late 1800’s. So on Saint Patrick's day, why not where some blue and celebrate this saint's life?
