DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming October 24th – SPECIAL WEDNESDAY MEETING
That’s right! Due to next Friday’s PD Day and next Thursday’s Parent/Teacher interviews, our next club meeting will be THIS WEDNESDAY! This week, the Doctor takes his new friends back in time for the first time, to 1955 Alabama…and a meeting with a woman who will help to change the course of history: Rosa Parks. In this day and age, when racists and white supremacists feel free to come out of hiding and trumpet their evil, a story championing civil rights is just what the Doctor ordered…and a reminder that the Doctor exists to battle against all kinds of evil. Join us this Wednesday in room 226 to watch the third episode of the new season: ROSA.
DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming October 19th
We’re out of the gate and running, as a screw-up sends the new 13th Doctor and her friends into the far future. On a distant planet, the Doctor, Yas, Ryan & Graham discover that they have arrived for the end game to a very strange race…and the finish line might just be the Doctor’s missing TARDIS. Join us for more pizza and fun this week, as we watch the new season’s second episode: THE GHOST MONUMENT.
Robotics Team Meeting Tomorrow Beginning of Lunch
The Robotics Team is back for a second year! Anyone interested in joining the robotics team please come to a quick meeting at the beginning of lunch, located in Room A4 in the Annex behind the school. If you can’t make it to today’s meeting, but are interested in joining, please talk to Mr. Chaves.
DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming October 12th
THIS IS IT...the moment we’ve all been waiting for: Jodie Whittaker takes on the role of the new 13th Doctor — the first woman to have the role in the 55 year run of the series. This is monumental, history-making television…and Doctor Who Club invites everyone to this Friday’s meeting, where will begin a 10-week consecutive run of the new Doctor’s history-making episodes. The first episode is entitled THE WOMAN WHO FELL TO EARTH…and I’m certain the impact of Jodie’s arrival will be worth the wait…
Model UN Club
Our next meeting is October 10 at lunch in Room 225. The topic for this week is Climate Change. Come and choose a country and join us in a debate.
DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming October 5th
Here we are, on the cusp of the greatest regeneration in Doctor Who’s 55 year history…and before we welcome Jodie Whittaker aboard, we will say one more goodbye to Peter Capaldi’s powerful and poignant 12th Doctor. This week we will feature an encore showing of TWICE UPON A TIME; the 1st and 12th Doctor both trying to convince themselves to go through with choices that will change their lives forever…or end them permanently. A melancholy examination of friendship, love and the power of memory, what better way to lead us into the sun of a new dawn for the series. And with impeccable timing, this week also features our October prize raffle.
Mario Kart Club!
Mario Kart Club is up and running again.
Drop by in rm 306 at lunch on Thursdays to participate.
DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming September 28th
As we rapidly approach the dawn of a new era, and a new Doctor…let us take a moment to appreciate the glorious classic team of the 7th Doctor and Ace. Sylvester McCoy & Sophie Aldred had a natural chemistry that helped to cement their pairing as one that even the new series looks back on. The 7th Doctor was the first one who could talk about bringing down evil empires, while simultaneously appreciating jazz music and the genius of Elvis Presley…very much imprinting a modernist approach all his successors would follow. Meanwhile, Ace is the misfit working class teen from the inner suburbs — a virtual prototype for Rose Tyler and her council estate life. Together, McCoy and Aldred saw out the 1980s in great style and surprisingly deep substance…and nowhere is this more evident than in this week’s concluding episodes of REMEMBRANCE OF THE DALEKS. Join us this week and rediscover this classic Time Lord/human friendship for yourself.
