All About Me:  Amanda

Hi, my name is Amanda. And I am funny, creative, silly, lovable, crazy, and colorful. (As you can 

see…) My favorite colors are purple and blue. My favorite food is pasta. When I am at school, my 

favorite subject is Math, Science, and Digital Media. When I am at home, my favorite thing to do 

is play with my dogs: Angel, Champ, and Lucy. I also have a cat named Chewy. But he is really 

mean. One of my other favorite hobbies is playing on the computer or hanging out with my 

niece: Sarah, Mon.- Fri. at my house. I love my family. One of the things you can learn from me 

is that I am an aunt to 4 people. And I am a babysitter at the most 5 times a year for my nieces 

and nephew: Rose Anne, Kristopher, and Sarah. But, interesting fact, I am an aunt to a 19 year 

old! Also I have never gone to Hawaii. But I was going to go this year but my mom got eye 

surgery and she had to recover and so it was the beginning of school by that time. I was upset 

but we might be able to go this summer. I also love Disneyland. I hate roller coasters. I have a 

fear of heights and speed. I went on the Giant Dipper with my dad because I wanted to see what it was like. So when I went I wanted to jump off. It felt like I was FALLING out of my SEAT. I 

was so SCARED. That was a little (more like a lot) about me. Hope you enjoyed my paragraph. And please make sure you comment on our blog website and try to watch every episode we make.

 

 

All about me: Kate
   Hi my name is Kate and I am clumsy, funny, and athletic.My favorite food is pineapple. My favorite sports are basketball and soccer. I love just goofing off with friends. My favorite animals are dogs and elephants. Two of my favorite colors is aqua or light blue. I have two older brothers but that is what makes me stronger. My favorite place to go is Hawaii and also Disneyland. My favorite ride is Matterhorn, especially at night. Everyone remembers me by laughing all the time and my magical freckles. I am so scared of spiders. Every time I see one, I scream and run, and their always in my room. The one thing I have always wanted to do, was run around in a wide open area in a human hamster ball. I think, I am clumsy because I trip over myself, fall down the stairs, hit things over and etc. Well thats a little bit about myself.

 

 

All About Me:Frankie

 

Hi, my name is Frankie and I am funny and love to make friends. Making friends is fun because while you may know everything about yourself you probably don’t even know their favorite color or their name. My favorite color is pink which is why I wrote in pink letters! My favorite food is pizza and this food favorite I share with many people. my favorite animal is a flamingo, my love for Flamingo’s does not hide the fact that I also love my five cats. I am so excited for this blog and hope you enjoy it! Have a Great Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Academy Award Winning Michael Semanick with the iPanther Staff

Welcome to the latest version of the iPanther!  There is lots of great new content that has been created by the ever-improving iPanther staff.  Our biggest undertaking in the last month has been the creation of an editorial and opinion policy.  The opinion policy is located on the “Opinion” tab and the editorial policy is found in the side bar to the right of this post and will remain their throughout the year.  We hope these policies earn us your trust and respect as a news staff.

Additionally the iPanther has put together a new movie “Black Ops 2: Just Too Good”, great articles on Miller Creek’s very own cross-country superstar Nicole Bissey, the pressures of popularity, the newest in technology, opinions about the national and state election, and much, much more.  You are sure to find something you like simply by clicking around.

Enjoy the iPanther and your winter vacation.—-the iPanther Staff

The Mock Election Results Updated LIVE!

Here at Miller Creek, we are all under voting age, so the history teachers decided to stage a mock election using the official California Student Mock Election ballot from the California secretary of state’s office.  Throughout the day, students went to the school library with their history class and voted for President, U.S. Senator, and all propositions that are on the California ballot.  Throughout the day Mr. Case’s students, parent volunteers, and ultimately Honor Society students counted the votes to come up with the official Miller Creek results.  As soon as possible after school, the iPanther staff will be posting and updating the results from our election.  So get a cold drink, hover your mouse over the refresh button, and watch the votes flood in!

The iPanther is Miller Creek’s student news site staffed by the eighth graders in Mr. Case’s Digital Media 2 class.  We report on everything from basketball games to movies that are highly anticipated by teenagers.  We use our mixed digital media skills to produce not only articles, but movies, podcasts, keynotes, and more.  If anything major happens on campus or in our community, our readers can count on us to have an article, movie, etc. about the event.  Here is a quick overview of the categories you will find on this website, each page has a comment section at the bottom…let these hard working students know what you think about their work!

Feature News is all about the major things that affect our community here at Miller Creek and the surrounding area.  Be sure to check out Nathan Kertz’s article the school book drive, or Michael Davis’ report on eighth grade trips.  This is where you will also find today’s mock election results.

Teen Culture is where readers can see what’s trendy or what’s soon to be trendy.  Some highlights of this section are Nikki Strack’s list of new movies, and Matthew Baker’s reviews of several restaurants in our area that are teenager friendly and  have great food.  Nikki and Hailey Todhunter have also created an article/movie about trends in shoes.

The Sports section contains the sports events and teams on and around the campus.  There’s an excellent video about fantasy sports by Andreas Meshcheryakov and Ryan Morris, and a report on homeroom games by Ryan as well.

In the Technology section, readers will find great articles on the newest hardware and software.  Articles include Tim Z’s iPhone 5 article, and Vinnie’s article on on Microsoft’s new Windows 8.

In the iPanther’s Creative Corner, staff members get to try their hand at creative writing, reporting, movie making, etc…  You definitely need to check out an amazing movie by Brendan Campagna, Halle’s Olympic swimmer poll, and some interesting and scary writing from Connor and Kevin.

Staff members get to let it all hang out on the Opinion Page.  Check out what the staff members think about public high school, Choice Lunch, textbooks vs. laptops, and thoughts on girls-only volleyball and new units that could be taught in P.E.

Finally, student body president Matthew Lee gives his two cents as he posts about what’s up on campus through his eyes.

Wow!  Lots going on, be sure to check it all out and let us know how we are doing.
