Condors VS. Heat
by Kyle Driver
The Condors-Heat game was one of the best field trips I have ever been on. One very awesome thing was that it was the largest field day in the history of the Condors stadium and we were a part of it! It was a little disappointing that the Condors lost but it was still a good game (Heat won 3-1). During the game There were 3 fights but the first one was the best. They took of their gloves and started to fist fight. Also in the third period the people in front of us left so we got front row seats so you could feel when they smashed into the wall. Jonathan and Talon said I flinched every time they hit the wall. In the end of the game the Condors took out their goalie and it made a huge difference, the puck didn’t go to their side at all so Heat wasn’t Able to score. All in all it was an amazing game.
Condors VS Heat

The trip to the Condors versus Heat Hockey game was amazing and very interesting! What we did before going to the Feld trip however, was to make sure we were on the list to go. The ride to Bakersfield was not at all that boring since I had my Friend Kyle next to me and my friend Talon at the seats next to us and we talked and laughed all the way. Once we arrived at the Arena, we got in line to get our Tickets of administration and our Lunch which came inside a small box. As we entered inside, there were people selling food, Merchandise, and Souvenirs. The Hockey Game in general was interesting because not because of the game itself, but because I’ve never been to a game or stadium/Arena before. As the game went on, Schools were being welcomed and as each were called up, that school would scream. Some kids from our school were also given things from the Heat team; a hockey stick and a puck both of which were given to a boy named Jesse and another named Thomas. We were sitting in the front row by the time the game started to end and that was cool because we saw the players from up close and flinched every time someone hit the boards. Once the game ended, the score was Condors 1 and Heat 3, we went back outside and in the bus and I fell asleep in the way back to school.
iPads At Pioneer Middle School
by Kimberly E. Slaton
How many kids out there get to work and use iPads? Well, not that many. Lucky for Pioneer Middle School students they get to work on iPads. Students can no longer say, “The dog ate my homework”. With these iPads it is easier for kids to keep their notes organized and together as well as keep all their assignments organized.
Students 6th through 8th grades are able to get iPads if they have everything signed and turned in on time. The librarian is the person who distributes iPads to every student; 8th grade goes first then 7th and lastly 6th grade.
iPads have two universally used apps that students can use to do assignments and projects, which are eBackpack and Google Classroom. Using these apps students can turn in their assignments when not at school. Teachers can assign students assignments, projects, and presentations through these apps too. Students can work on homework at home and when they finish they can turn it in immediately. The downside of eBackpack is you have to turn in your assignments within the time period the teacher has assigned you. Another app that students and teachers use is Google Classroom. Teachers assign students assignments and they have a due date to finish it, just like ebackpack. Google Classroom is where you attach documents to the assignment and turn it in. Also students are able to have conversations with other students and teachers about the work.
In conclusion, iPads are very useful for students and teachers at Pioneer Middle School. There are many apps that students can use to learn and take notes such as eBackpack and Google Classroom.
