We love our Indianapolis Colts!

Even though the Saints won the Super Bowl, our school showed its spirit by wearing Colts Blue the Friday before the game and holding a Super Bowl Door Decorating Contest. Our class collaborated and came up with the theme: "We'll scream for the Colts until we're H-O-R-S-E!" The football player on the door (see below) was inspired by Edvard Munch's painting "The Scream". We won honorable mention.

DIADEM: Book of Names by John Peel
Imagine this: A daughter of a lord from the Renaissance, a street rat from New York City, and a blue skinned boy from a virtual world where no one goes outside. Now imagine them being forced to all come together to fight evil magicians! They discover that they are magic users.
None of them feel that they can trust each other. Helaine, the daughter of a lord, thinks lowly of them and disguises as a boy, Score, the street rat, thinks they are odd, and Pixel, the boy from the virtual world, is rather scared of them, because he isn’t used to the real world, and there is nothing fake about this. But as none of them trust each other, can they still fight evil together? Find out in DIADEM: Book of Names! Reviewed by Emily
