of those similarities are, both have English as a major language and both have a type of limited government.
Remind 101 A limited government is when the country has a written constitution, guaranteed rights for the individuals,

Book Club By: Ben Stormer and Jarret Schaef
Book Club is an extra activity for Mrs. Christian that you could have selected to do. Recently, it ended. The book we read was The Watsons go to Birmingham-1963. We
read it in three parts. After we finished the book, we had a project that we had to complete for the book. It was a pyramid made out of paper, with a summary of the parts
we read in each side of the pyramid. On the fourth side you did a connection from The Watsons go to Birmingham and the class novel we were reading, The Cay. We had
a final Book Club discussion showing off our projects and talking about them. All of the students in Book Club did great in the end, and hopefully pleased Mrs. Christian.
Band by Jarrett Schaef and Ben Stormer
This week, the band is starting a fall fundraiser to help us get new things for band or new stands, and we need your help doing this. This would help us get new school
instruments if you could help, that would be great!!!!! Thanks for helping us out or being a good band student this year. There are some students switching instruments
like from trombone to tuba, and trumpet to French horn. They will be excited that they will be playing their new instruments in the Christmas concert in December
2013 and the end of the year party. We will also go and compete with different schools in different school districts. We would like you to start or keep practicing for
these specific things or go to morning early practice at 7:30am in the band hall. If you want to know more about these things go to the Greenways website
