Did you go to the Hullabaloo Saturday? Well everyone had a blast! There was everything you could imagine games, food trucks, hairspray, and more!
There were 3 food trucks including Marty’s waffles. Marty’s waffles has every waffle you can imagine. They even have a s’mores one. Yummy! One food truck was selling hot chocolate, and that was a big hit!
I saw the most beautiful hair color after being in the hair spray booth! There were greens, blues, purples, pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, and sooooooooo many more! I wish I got my hair done!
There were many games including ring a soda, duck pond, feed-n-time, and lots more. You could win tickets to get prizes or you could win treats! If you got enough tickets you could win the coolest prizes!
The silent auction was......... well silent! I hope I won something! Hey, did you see the school spirit wear stuff? The shirts were the best! Can you believe that our school will be new in 3 years? Imagine how much more awesome Hullabaloo will be then! To bad I won’t be here! (I’m in 5th grade)
Today I interviewed Mr.G and Mrs.Dikeos about the Johnson construction and I had 3 questions which were:
The first question I asked them was what do you think of the new building design and this is what they had to say:
Mrs.Dikeos:”Oh, the new building design, I love the new building design. It looks like it fits right into the neighborhood. I’ve actually been told that some people like it. What about you Mr.G?”
Mr.G:”Yeah, uhh, I think it’s great. I think it’s creative. And I love how it all fits together and blends in with the neighborhood like Mrs.Dikeos says.”
Next, I asked, “What are you most excited about in the new building design?”
Mrs.Dikeos:”Ok I’m gonna say that I’m most excited about everyone being under one roof.”
Mr.G:”Yes, I would say everyone having their own space and everyone being able to ya know make that space their own. But I’m I also think that having everyone in one big building.”
Mrs.Dikeos but’s in:” YESSSS!”
Mr.G:”But, I also think having everyone in one big building will allow everyone to see each other more and work together more.”
Finally, I asked the last question which was how do you feel about the upcoming construction?
Mrs.Dikeos:”Hmmmmm how do we feel about the upcoming construction?”
Mr.G:”We feel pretty good. Probably a little bit of nervousness and excitement.”
Mrs.Dikeos:”Yes excited, but really nervous too because we ya know if I could snap my fingers and have it done then that would be perfect. But I know that it’s gonna take some time and we are gonna have some bumps in the road but we will get over it.”
Mr.G:”We will make it!”
And that is how they feel!

According to The Pantone Color Institute, the color of the year selected for 2018 is Ultra Violet.
Below is an excerpt from
the New York Times Morning Briefing
for January 9, 2018:
This year the shade is Ultra Violet. “We wanted to pick something that brings hope and an uplifting message,” the institute’s director, Leatrice Eiseman, told The Times.
In Phoenician times, purple dye was made from the mucus of sea snails in the coastal city of Tyre, in what is now Lebanon.
Because the color was difficult and expensive to produce, it became associated with power and royalty, from ancient Rome to the kingdoms of Europe. In the 1500s, Queen Elizabeth I decreed that only members of the royal family could wear the color.
In 1856, a British chemist, William Henry Perkin, made the color more accessible when he accidentally created a purple dye while trying to concoct a treatment for malaria.
More than 160 years later, a color that’s rare in nature is about to have its moment.
