School Menu: Good vs. Bad Foods
The School has foods that are not good. For one, their spaghetti
is cold by the time you get it, or it has too little sauce. The school’s
goulash, or as I say, GOO-lash, is so nasty I doubt even the cooks eat
it. I know I’m a critic, but I can’t eat the stuff. On the other hand, our
school’s macaroni and cheese , though very sticky, is tasty. I has the
perfect amoung of cheesiness. The turkey and gravy is good too/
Though it needs more turkey than gravy. The mashed potatoes are
good, but as my sister says, “They get crusty when they’re cold.” I
personally think they are delicious. Well, at least the ones from the
box. The real ones always have potato peels in them. These are only For more information about
opinions, but I hope I gave you information on our menu. school lunches, check out

The Guardians of Ga’hoole is an emotional thrill ride that keeps you guessing at
every turn. Watch as you read on and discover the twists and turns that Soren,
the main character, and his best pal Gylfrie face.

The first three books have been made into a hit movie. Go see these owls face-
many challenges on the big screen, but if you’re up to the challenge, read the
books first! I almost guarentee you will love them!!!

Logo Land: Walt Disney Pictures
Hello. If you are wondering what this column is about, then let me guide you into the
interesting and overlooked world of logos. A logo is a mark accompanied with visuals and sound that iden-
tifies a company in movies, television, and even video games. For this month, I decided to start this column
with a familiar logo, the Walt Disney Pictures logo, specifically, the classic blue logo.
On a blue background, white segments from the Sleeping Beauty castle form from top to bottom. By the
time the bottom segment forms, there is a flash, revealing the classic Disney signature, which, by the way,
was never Walt’s actual signature. The word “PICTURES” fades in and the arc crosses over from right to left.
The music for this logo is a variation of “When You Wish Upon a Star”. At the end of the song, a five-
note trill on a flute or recorder is heard.
Now comes the fun part: variations. Variations are times when the logo does something different
than what it normally does. For example, when the show “Recess” came to the big screen, the animators
decided to have some fun with the logo. After the flash occurs, the main characters from “Recess” pop out
from behind the castle and join in on kazoos for the end of the music. Too long ago for you? In “Race to
Witch Mountain”, the castle, actually revised and more three-dimensional, darkens to become a silhouette
of Witch Mountain and a comet falls from the upper left hand corner.
I hope you will come back next month for a new logo description on music, visuals, and variants.
In the future, I also hope to introduce some television logos from youth and also some that your parents
might recognize. See you next month. by Thomas Ostrowski
