Thanksgiving is right around the corner, with many people who have alot of fun plans. As Wikipedia says: Thanksgiving is a harvest festival, a great time to express thanks towards everything you’re thankful for. The frist Thanksgiving celebrated occured at Plymouth Plantation in 1621.

“Winter also tends to bring out the kind of bad habits–from overindulging at parties to letting exercise routines slide–that make the body more susceptible to infection.”- Time Magazine
Illness is a very big factor this winter season, with the weather getting colder many students are getting sick. When there are so many students sick its hard not to get infected. TIME magazine says: “Winter also tends to bring out the kind of bad habits–from overindulging at parties to letting exercise routines slide–that make the body more susceptible to infection.” The cold weather doesn’t affect if we get sick or not, during the colder weather we tend to stay inside more, also meaning were around more people and their germs more often than usual. Washing your hands will mostly only keep the germs from spreading, but their are still many ways you can get sick.
In the winter many people may just get a common cold, really no big deal. Although some people get infected with whats called Swine Flue or H1N1 flu, the flu originated from the endemic of pigs. There are many different symptoms from the common cold to the H1N1 flu. Both sicknesses can be spread very easily, so if your sick stay away from people who may be sick. Also if you are not sick, stay away from people who may have the obvious sights of being sick: runny nose, cough etc.

Our school is made up of many different races, and everyone is different. Cliques are a situation here at FMHS. Sports bunch up, and teenagers begin hanging out mostly with kids from the sport they participate in. Different sports may gain up on different sports, not trying to be mean on purpose of course. Students may think they are just being funny, but respect is a issue here at our school. From race to race or sport to sport people are noticing that respect is an issue here.
We already have enough respect issues from school to school, like from Brush to Fort Morgan, we don’t respect problems inside our school. It just makes ours school and our town look bad. Respect issues are something that everyone and every school has, but why do we need to be like every school? Schools should consist of unity, a school should be like one big team, all working together. Instead of a bunch of teams all working in different directions. Respect is something FMHS needs to work on, we all need to learn to get along.

Teenage girls base a lot of things that we do on the movies that we watch. We believe that if we see it in a movie, well then it must be okay! Although we all know that its probably not the best thing to do, thats how the media has taught us to react to movies. The point of a movie is to take you away from this world and put you in the world of the movie, a fantasy you might call it.
I asked 10 girls what their favorite movie was and this is what they said
