The Weekly Waffle ™
Thanks from the Waffle
Hello once again weekly readers. It has been a long year, sadly with only five issues. If you haven’t put two and two together yet, this is our last issue and we would like to thank all of our supporters and donators for sticking with us on this fairly short journey. We are proud to be advertising ZOLTRON TM in this issue of the WEEKLY WAFFLE and to have supported Valley Visions in the last issue. But, the road does not end here, not after all those long Thursday nights of AC/DC and Kettle Chips. The Weekly Waffle will hold strong and be around next year and the year after and maybe three years from now, but that is to far to predict. Lets just focus on next year. The Weekly Waffle is also happy to announce that we may be starting a new Rev 9 magazine this summer, so stay tuned and keep eating waffles.
Camping trip on May 18th
By Emma H.
We are staying at Sugarloaf state park for 2 nights. We are going to study California American Indians while we are there and go to an observatory on the 1st night. We are going to sleep in tents.
We will look at the stars from the observatory and stay up late and we might get to see some planets while we are looking at the stars!

A train poem by Lila Fox
on the track
moving fast I hear a blast
black smoke in the station
it really grabs my imagination
now I am flying in the sky
I watch the train fly right by
Avengers Age of Ultron ™ by Aidan D
Avengers Age of Ultron™ was a great movie. It had a lot of explosions and action. They took a lot of risks and they managed to defeat Ultron. You should really see this movie. Just so you know, its rated PG13. Make sure to wait for the credits to be over and you’ll see one more clip.
Pitch Perfect 2™ by Gracie Chavez
The new Pitch Perfect movie is coming up. If you have watched the first Pitch Perfect, as you know, they won the finals and then the movie ended right when Anna Kendrick was about to say what song they picked. We will find out what song they picked in the second movie. You better watch it (Its rated PG13)! I don’t really know when it comes out but you can look it up. BTW its super funny-Anna Kendrick for life!
I am the bluebird
Diving down for bugs
And swooping back to my box.
Black Filled Sky
By Logan Fredenburg
Blackness fills the sky
The creek quietly trickles
The shadowy hills surround me
The silver waxing gibbous lights up
The nighttime sky
COMICS ARE AWESOME
so here are some

SCHOOL’S OUT FOR SUMMER WORD SEARCH
We need a female president
By Jubilee Adams
Both men and women can make great presidents. But some men haven’t given women a chance to be president of the United States. In other places such as Argentina,Evita Peron became president after her husband died. President Mary Mcaleese from Ireland and Dalia Itzik from Israel are a few of the women who became presidents. But we’ve never had a woman president in the United States. Hilary Clinton ran in 2008 but someone else, who was also amazing and changed the world won: Barack Obama. He is the first African American president ever in the United States. Hilary is going to be running again in 2016.
Some people disagree with women being president, and say they “know” a woman in office would make bad decisions. Some men have made bad decisions like the attack on Iraq and lots of wars. Some people say women are too emotional and will give in too easily to other people, because being president is such a demanding job. Some people actully think women are the weaker sex. That has been so called “truth” for centuries. But really scientists have realized that women are generally better educated than men, making them good leaders. Both genders should be EQUAL! Sorry people but we are EQUAL and will always be. We are definitely ready for a woman president.
Chocolate Milk is A Better Energy Drink Than Red Bull
Chocolate milk and Red Bull are both popular energy drinks,but chocolate milk fuels you in a lasting and healthful way. Red Bull does have some health benefits, but some of the ingredients are unnecessary and potentially harmful, especially to children.
Chocolate milk fuels you with milk protein, which is long lasting for endurance. The sugar and carbohydrates give you quick and easy energy. In an 8 oz. glass of chocolate milk there are only 5 mg of caffeine, unlike the highly caffeinated popular energy drinks such as Red Bull. Red Bull fuels you with caffeine and blocks off the cells that make you tired which leaves you with a sugar crash. Red Bull does have some healthy ingredients; it has Taurine and vitamin B. Unfortunately it contains a whopping 80 mg. of caffeine in an 8.4 oz. can. Caffeine is known to cause jitteriness, nervousness, headaches, dehydration and sleeplessness in children and adults. Caffeine can lead to obesity in children. Red Bull also contains 27g. of sugar per can it has one third more sugar than Trumoo chocolate milk.
Chocolate milk is the drink of choice for some Olympic athletes because they care about there bodies. They know they don’t want to feel jittery or dehydrated during an important event, so they choose a better energy drink chocolate milk – low in sugar low in caffeine high in protein and scrumptious in taste. Whenever I need some energy I reach for a glass of chocolate milk.

We are on the Redwings Little League team. We have 13 players which is the most you can have on a little league team. We won 20 games out of 21 and we tied the first one. On our last game we made two double outs in one inning. On May 17th we had a potluck and we got trophies and shirts. ”
On Monday, May 18th, Stephen Curry shot a 64 foot long basket against the Grizzlies. They won 108 to 95. The Warriors are in the playoffs. They have eight more games to get to the championship. Stephen Curry got the best player award.
My team was doing so good this year. The last game of the season we got two triple outs. I caught three pop flies V.S the Bats. It was so windy. Paloma, Dillon.C and Jackson are the other players on our team.
