Fall Sports by Arlin
There will be girl's volleyball and coed football tryouts coming on October 9th, and October 10th. In order to try out, you need gym clothes, a physical form from your doctor saying that it’s ok for you to play, and some athletic shoes. Denver Green School is planning to allow everyone that tries-out to be on the team.
The Story by Melody
First stop: The library. I got my phone taken away after my parents thought I was spending too much time on it. There are computers at the library and it’s really easy to track people down. Just by someone's dog name, you could know where they live. So I looked on Instagram but because it looks like Snapchat, it would be a little bit challenging finding him. I found some of his friends Snapchats and asked them Chris’s username. Then I found it. He was going out with Chole! I saw her always with him holding hands and sharing Ice cream in some of the pictures. Wait, these pictures were taken a few months ago! I guess he isn’t really on Instagram often. Just then, I noticed a couple walk into the library. It was Chloe and Chris. I went up to them with a fake smile on my face because they were holding hands. “Hey, guys! I see you’re dating.” “Yeah, Chris was just telling me this silly story about us breaking up! I don’t remember that at all.” “Heh-heh..” Chris replied uncomfortably. “You know, Chloe you should let go because Chris’s story is true. It’s all over the school but your friends are just hiding it from you so you won’t get hurt.” I lied just to see her cry. “What? How can you say that? You’re nobody!” Her tears started coming down. “Oh yeah? Well, I hear a lot of things because no one really pays any attention to me. Unlike you, they hid a LOT of things.” I smirk and then whispered to Chris,”Well Chris, who’s it going to be? Chloe, or Bianca? I know you like one of them the most.” “You better not be talking about me! UGH!! I’m out of here!” “SHH!” Shushed the librarians. Then she stomped out of there. I was holding my laughter so hard, my face turned into a red tomato. Chris asked,”Umm was that too far?” When I calmed down, I said,”No, that was the plan.” Then I walked out of the library and then stalked him from the window. Because of my father being an agent, I was VERY good at stalking people. I got my camera and while he was working on the computer, I took pictures of what he was looking at. Nothing of what he likes. Strange. Normally students search up things they like. He looks like a good student seeing how he isn’t dressed like one. Then, I found something disturbing.
Earthquake Update in Mexico By Zander
So far this week, there have been many earthquakes happening in Mexico, but the most recent and most devastating so far was a category 7.1 earthquake just 23 miles outside of Puebla, Mexico. In just four days, there have also been 11 other earthquakes around that area of Mexico. All the messes that all of these earthquakes have put up are catastrophic for all people in Mexico.
Areas like Soledad, Mapastepec, Arriaga, San Miguel Chimalapa, Ixtepec, Santo Domingo Ingenio, and Matias Romero Avendano have all been hit or been near all these earthquakes and all of them have been about at least 6 miles away from the nearest city in Mexico.
Buildings have collapsed, the damage has spread miles upon miles throughout all of the lands. Catastrophic events like this can’t be prevented. But people can help by bringing resources to people in need who have lost their homes, loved ones, and public cities. People can also make donations to the people who have lost their resources as well. Donations of all sizes will help the people in need from these catastrophes. Every donation counts!

My First Time on an Excursion at DGS by Gladys
It was my first day of school at DGS and I have just found out that in a few days we were going to go on an excursion. The next day after I got home, I started packing because there was only one day left. The next day it was the day of the excursion! We were getting our stuff to get on the bus we waited a long time because we were getting everything ready. But finally got on the bus and were on the way to the camping excursion. The ride there took forever and I was exhausted. When we got there I was so excited. The first thing we did was eat burritos. It was delicious but after I ate a lot I felt like I was gonna throw up, but after a few minutes, I felt better. We setup our tent and went on hikes and the hikes took a long time. When we came back it was night time and we got ready for bed but before we went to bed we went by the campfire and we did a talent show and that was really fun. Overall I really liked my first excursion at DGS, and I look forward to going to another one.
