万圣节特辑

Elaine同学写了一篇精彩的文章,描述自己的万圣夜,以及自己最好的朋友之间的故事。以下是她的英文原文,让我们一起来感受一下她的万圣节。
Elaine’s Scary Halloween Story: My Best Friend
By Elaine Zhang (student at Notre Dame Academy)
I didn’t know my friend was a ghost until she killed me with a closet. This may sound strange but let me tell you how it happened. I moved to Westwood last summer and I was new and lonely. I couldn’t find any friends to play with because of my weird Australian accent, at least not until the month before Halloween. Starting from the 1st day of October, this strange-looking girl dressed in black would constantly stand in front of my house and stared at me with her dark, empty eyes. I was a bit scared, but I chose to talk to her due to my curiosity and ended up spending most of my time with her. I was the one who would usually talk, and she just listened with a smile on her face. I told her every single secret I had but she never told me anything about herself. She said she would show me everything on Halloween. Finally, on the 31st of October, she took me to her house as promised.

I was so excited, and I told my mother that I would go to my friend’s house for the very first time since I moved to Westwood, but when I introduced my mom to her, she seemed worried and confused. Anyways, we went across the dark forest and I saw a typical, tiny wooden house. My friend suddenly started to talk!

She said her parents were killed by an arsonist when she was 12 years old and her uncle took care of her until now. I didn’t feel sorry for her because she was smiling when she told me all the terrible things that happened to her family. It was weird because everything in the house was covered with dust and the house was lifeless. Finally, we went into her room, she forced me to sit on her bed and listen to her speak. I felt that something was not right, so I asked her if I could use her bathroom. I went down the hall to find the bathroom and heard someone yelling, I followed the voice and entered a dark room which had a wall covered with photos of me since the first day I got here! Then an old couple showed up in the air, their faces were burned and their hands were chained together. “Run!”, they roared. The old woman said, ”My child is sick, she has unresolved problems and her next target is you!” I freaked out as I heard my friend calling for me. I just wanted to run away from this place, so I rushed out of the room and tried to find a way out. I heard her yelling, “Why are you running?” I ignored her and I finally found the front door. Just as I was about to escape, the girl appeared in front of me. “I got you!”, she screamed, a closet fell on me, and I passed out. “Now, you are one of us.”

拉萨尔男校昨晚为国家荣誉学会的成员进行了庆祝仪式。Leo、CHhris、Gordon三名12年级学生以及11年级生Patrick都是国家荣誉学会的成员。为这些了不起的年轻人感到骄傲!


La Reina的学生们在SDM(原SSC,剑桥项目协调员)的带领下一起去好莱坞环球影城参观。在那里,他们参观了他们最喜欢的电影和电视节目中的道具和汽车,他们还参观了哈利波特世界,那里还保存着巫师袍。他们已经想好万圣节的点子了!


不知道大家是否注意到前几次学生风采中出现过达拉斯路德中学的Minh?他这几周也过得非常不错!目前,已确认被LSU(路易斯安那州州立大学)录取,并被他的同学票选为同学会的一员!


与大家分享一个关于爱心与责任、坚持与突破的故事。

上周末,Saint Bonaventure的Jackie完成了一场5公里长跑。半跑半走,最终到达了重点。Jackie说,住家妈妈特地陪她训练过,每周中有几天会选择在家附近慢跑。其实,当她最初参加比赛时,她从来没有想过自己能真的抵达终点。但是平时训练的付出,以及想冲过终点线的欲望,帮助自己最终完成了比赛。

Jackie说:真的非常有成就感,因为这是她第一次参与筹款活动,帮助癌症患者,非常有意义。

AMHS最近两名高年级女生Christine和Suzy一起去参加哈佛大学模拟训练营。

这是他们俩第二次参加模拟训练营,并成功在代表队中获得一席之地。当问及她们在哈佛的经历时,她们觉得最享受的是一起刻苦奋斗的时光,遇见来自美国各地的其他团队,还能欣赏周围城市的景色。

回来后,女孩们都很兴奋,并把这次训练的经历分享给其他几名剑桥国际学生,成功安利!今年我们有8名剑桥学生,参加AMHS模拟考察队的比赛!


Saint Bonaventure的学生们昨天收获了满满的橙子!向当地食品银行捐赠了1000磅巴伦西亚橙子。

这是一个收获与奉献的季节!


又到了家访Goodcounsel学生Sam的时候了!

他的三个小寄宿兄弟已经完全被Sam圈粉,每天放学后,家里的小男孩们都会在萨姆的房间里玩,直到他开始做作业。他们还一起出门看户外电影,体验不一样的生活。Sam很喜欢他们和家里的动物,狗,鸡,鸭子。

这其实是Heather妈妈及她的家庭第一次做寄宿家庭,非常愉快的经历。

忘了说,Sam还为家人做了一顿饭——这是多么的勇敢,因为住家爸爸是一名专业的厨师,重要的是心意!
