About people you know, events you went to and all about your concerns. The mission of the News and Media Club is to provide another form of communication for our students to share their ideas, thoughts, and opinions. It is a way for them to express themselves creatively, in writing, photography, videos, art, and opinions. The club members will interview students and staff; they will take and edit photographs and videos. They will design webpages and learn how to digitally publish future editions of the newspaper. They will get press entry into school events. The aim is for them to share their ideas with other students, their families, their teachers, and the surrounding Mount Pleasant community. We have a dedicated group of students working very hard to make this new venture a success. Please see Mr. Chu or Mrs. Varin, the advisors or any club member, for more information.

By Mr. Neil Johnson & Byron David Teacher / Staff Writer Members of Providence s finest Motorcycle Club led by Captain Will Vazquez and local New England clubs showed tremendous support at the 1 st Annual Ride for Education after school activity fundraiser on the gloomiest Saturday in November. Although the weather was dismal, the festivities were anything but. Generous donations from local establishments including Broadway Bistro, K&J Cuisine, Papa Paulie s, Anthony s Deli, Snookers Sports Café, and Food for the Soul helped to spice up the festivities while the day was wrapped up with an exciting raffle at the club. Unfortunately the rain stopped the bike excursion across town, but it could not break the spirit of our proud community members as they raised enough money to build a swimming pool on the roof of the school! (Construction TBD) HOMECOMING PARADE! The parade was such a good time. It may not have been the size of Bristol's 4th of July celebration, but it was filled with pride and spirit. I enjoyed myself and more importantly, I'm sure the kids who participated had a blast as they shut down Mount Pleasant Avenue and showed their Kiltie Pride. Who knew that spirit would carry itself over to an exciting overtime victory at the game. - Mr. Todd Creel Physics Phact Friction produces heat! As the cold New England winter closes in on Kiltie Country, remember this quick fix. If you find yourself outside without gloves, keep your hands nice and warm by quickly rubbing them together. The friction created by sliding them across each other will generate thermal energy, and ensure you don t lose a digit to frost bite you need all ten. -Mr. Pellegrino

4 MPHS Kiltie Times Page 4 Student Life S i t - D ow n W i t h t h e P r e z! By Maverick Russell Stall Writer Who doesn t want to be President? Well our elected Senior Class President, Jasmine Urquilla, choice to run wasn t just for the title. When asked about her choice to run and her drive to win, she had this to say: There are several reasons to why I decided to run for president my senior year in high school. These reasons included having a voice for students attending Mount Pleasant high school, and an opportunity to create a better learning environment for the students that will attend this school in the following years. But what pushed me to run for president of the Class of 2015 was my determination, effort, and positive attitude. As a senior, Jasmine knows the ropes and have been at Mount Pleasant long enough to understand what works and what doesn t work. She, along with many other seniors, has been through many changes. Some were good and some were bad. Speaking on what is to come, she gave us a little tease on what to expect in the coming months. Well, I want this year to be the best year in Mount Pleasant for the class of Winter Ball is coming up which means that I am currently trying to get as many people as possible to attend the dance. Also, earning first place on the Get Schooled Fall Attendance Challenge is another main goal for me. It was a very rewarding and fun experience when we won this challenge two years ago. Everyone enjoyed the prizes and I feel that we can definitely win again! As the class president, Jasmine will speak her mind and plan to involve everyone to help better Mount Pleasant in every way. First, I am going to the class representatives first and ask for their opinions. Next, I will ask the senior grade what their preferences are. I don t want these plans to be based off of my personal preference. I wish for everyone to have a voice in the decisions made to Mount Pleasant. G e t S c h o o l e d F a l l Well right now there are many ideas and considerations that are being taken into account. Currently, Winter Ball is the main focus as it is right around the corner. I have big plans for this year, but for now my lips are sealed. - Jasmine Urquilla, Class President Jasmine was very candid with her responses, but that doesn t mean she didn t leave us hanging. Well right now, there are many ideas and considerations that are being taken into account. Currently, Winter Ball is the main focus as it is right around the corner. I have big plans for this year, but for now my lips are sealed. MPHS 4P s!

5 MPHS Kiltie Times Page 5 News Providence s Hope, Mount Pleasant high schools are chosen for new Carnegie schools By Linda Borg Projo Journal Staff Writer PROVIDENCE The Providence School Department has chosen two sites, Mount Pleasant High School and Hope High School, for its new, innovative Carnegie schools. Only two school districts in the United States, Providence and Prince Georges County, Md., received a three-year Carnegie grant. Providence received $3 million this summer. The money will be used to create two small schools with no more than 450 students. Each school will open with about 105 ninth graders in the school year. Although the schools will be within the larger high schools and share certain facilities, each of the Carnegie schools will have its own principal and staff and will operate independently. Students from across the city will be assigned to these schools through the same school-choice process used for traditional high schools. The Carnegie schools will do two things: help struggling students catch up in terms of skills and credits and promote hands-on learning to allow students to move ahead at their own pace. Current students at Mount Pleasant and Hope will not be affected by this change. There is space in each building for the larger ninth-grade class that this will create next year, and the schools existing students will enjoy the same access to facilities, classes and supports, the School Department said. Incoming classes will gradually become smaller to accommodate both schools under the same roof. Both Mount Pleasant and Hope high schools currently have extra classroom space, which makes them suitable for the influx of additional Carnegie students. It is too soon to say what the schools will look like. During a July interview, School Supt. Susan Lusi said the schools could have longer days or hold classes on weekends. They could offer a mix of online and face-to-face instruction. The Providence Teachers Union has already signed an agreement that permits teachers at the Carnegie schools to work outside certain aspects of the contract. The current school year is a planning year and the school design teams will develop the schools missions and the specifics of their operations. The team leaders will later become principals. At a news conference last summer, Lusi said that the Carnegie schools will start where the kids are. They will demonstrate that high school can be done differently. The district hopes these schools will become a model for the future. Both Lusi and the Providence School Board have been thinking about moving away from a one-size-fits-all model to a portfolio of schools that would incorporate different learning styles. Article taken from the Providence Journal. E d i t o r i a l s : Are Web Filters in Providence Schools Too Restrictive? By Katherine Savinon Staff Writer Have you ever wanted to go to a web page in school and it s blocked? Even if it s for educational purposes? Mostly everyone replies to that question with a yes. If you replied with a no, you probably don t use any computers at school. Recently, the Providence School department unblocked Google; the site where most people use to do research. Why did they block it in the first place? Talk about unnecessary. Supposedly it was blocked because students were viewing inappropriate images and were using it to go to YouTube. Immature and irresponsible students can still do these things even when they blocked Google! Why punish the rest of us? What if in the future we won t be able to do any research and are forced to do it at home? I wouldn t find that surprising if it happened. Also, it s not just our school having restricted web filters. Oh no. It s many other schools. Most school districts in Rhode Island use web filters. Why? I can understand if they only blocked inappropriate websites, but these web filters also blocked sites, such as YouTube, that have helpful resources and educational videos. In my research to find out what other students think about web filtering, I found that many students feel the same way that I do. They banned Wikipedia. My school banned it! I don t know why. If this doesn t say it s too restrictive, then I don t know what is. Wikipedia is a site a lot of people use for research. I, myself, have used Wikipedia to do some research on a Spanish project I had in middle school. School filters only let you see what they want you to see. The filters at my school are getting worse and worse every day. They have started blocking sites and articles on things like the Holocaust as Too Violent...They ve started blocking certain Google searches that contain trigger words like killer, or blood, or massacre. How are we supposed to know what s safe to look at on the web and what isn t when we get out of school if filters keep going this far?! I feel like excess web filtering in schools are hurting education. There are some news sites blocked; I usually prefer reading the news online over watching it on television. But that option is out the window in school. Looks like I ll have to do it at home...

Es importante que los estudiantes tengan una definición más clara acerca del tema. Sin embargo, los estudiantes encuentran este tema un poco vergonzoso, por tanto su conocimiento acerca de la sexualidad puede ser muy bajo. Este Articulo ayudara a los lectores a tener una idea más precisa de lo que es la sexualidad. La sexualidad es un aspecto de la vida de todos los seres humanos y está relacionada con la capacidad de sentir placer, nace con nosotros y se muere con nosotros e involucra aspectos físicos, sentimentales y emocionales. Esto quiere decir, que la sexualidad está relacionada con nuestra forma de ser, de pensar, de sentir, de actuar y de relacionarnos con otras personas y con nosotros(as) mismos(as). La sexualidad rodea todo lo que somos, es por esto que la sexualidad no es una cosa que aparece de pronto en las personas adolescentes, jóvenes o adultas. La crianza y la educación, así como la edad, la cultura, la región geográfica, la familia y la época histórica inciden directamente en la forma en que cada persona vive su sexualidad. Sucede con frecuencia que el concepto de sexualidad

Estas encuestas son muy beneficiosas, primeramente porque se puede notar un apoyo familiar con el estudiante, segundo, porque por mas encuesta sean completadas, más suministro serán entregado a la secundaria, y luego respectivamente a los estudiantes. Gracias, y disfruten de la cena. La Sexualidad- Continuación de pagina 13 se confunda con los conceptos de sexo o relaciones sexuales, lo cual limita la vivencia de la sexualidad únicamente al contacto genital, pero, además del placer, el sexo y las relaciones sexuales, la sexualidad comprende aspectos como el afecto y las relaciones humanas. Por ejemplo, el afecto que una persona siente por sí misma, también llamado autoestima, así como el afecto hacia otras personas hacen parte de la sexualidad. Aunque se escuche un poco increíble, la sexualidad tiene una conexión con tu personalidad. Al no estar sexualmente saludable o preparado podría afectar considerablemente la personalidad y sentimientos. Es esencial respectar la forma en que cada persona vive su sexualidad. Al criticar o burlar al tipo de sexualidad de una persona, puede contraer malas consecuencias emocionales a esa persona. Por eso, es sustancial mantener el respecto y comunidad con todo tipo de persona para crear un mejor entorno donde todos podamos interactuar sin ningún tipo de preocupación o prejuicio.
