There will be ”Current Cut” for $12.00, ”Glass window Bridge” for $10.00 and more. Pre-ordering is not available, just swing by and grab a roll! First come, first serve!
All the money goes to the Grade 6 Eleuthera trip. Keep Calm and Eat Sushi!
Last week in the Bahamas there was the big election to see who would be the next governing party. The polling station in Hope Town was at the library. After people voted, a lot of adults had purple thumbs because you have to stamp your thumb so you can not go back and vote again. Everyone was very interested to see who would win. The FNM or Free National Movement took control of parliament winning 35 seats and the PLP winning 4 seats in the House of Assembly. The leader of the FNM is the Honorable Hubert Minnis. Also, the Honorable Perry Christie retired from politics. Now the PLP has to pick a new leader. It was a very intense election.
The Hope Town Abaco Swim Meet is coming in up in less than two weeks. The majority of Abaco schools like Agape are going to compete. I am going compete and a bunch of my classmates are going to the meet. I get really nervous when I’m about to start my race. When the race is over I feel relieved and very, very tired. We have a high chance of winning this year since most of the winning swimmers are in seventh grade now. Hope you can make it at the Hope Town Abaco community pool on the 26 of May, 2017.
April 15th was the ‘Hope Town School Ballet Recital’. It was called “The Mermaid and The Easter Egg”. Fina Divina was the main character. The first dance of the night was by Group 2. They were the “Dancing Diva Mermaids”. Next, Group 3 did their dance called “Eggy Situation”. After Group 3, Group 1 did their piece called “Follow Fina”. Then Group 3 did another dance which was their “Improvisational”. After that Reed and I did a hip-hop dance. I was the Sea Witch and Reed was the Hip-Hop Clam. Once we finished, Renelda the “Sea Fairy Godess” did her dance (I think she was the best). When Renelda was finished, Sam and Marissa did their “Squid and the Seahorse” dance. Once everything was finished we all had a free dance. This was a very successful night and the whole entire Community Center was packed with people.
In the past week, many people went to the West End Junior Sailing Regatta. People came from Nassau, Grand Bahama, Abaco, and other islands around the Bahamas. It was windy and easy to capsize if you weren’t paying attention. There was a Green Fleet, Champion Fleet, and some FJs. There were four races. It was an exciting two days and I would recommend you try to go next year, either as a sailor or a spectator.
I also got to go with Mr. Keith Cooper to see some Rays, and I also saw a lemon shark! It was such a great weekend.
A few weeks ago tapas night was hosted as a fundraiser for grade Eleuthera field trip. It was held at the coffee house. They had lots of samples of food like sushi, chicken, and ravioli. They also did the raffle. Some of the prizes were a computer, photo shoot, a stay at a vacation home, and a cooler. It was a huge success and a lot of fun.
Wow! The Hope Town Primary School Choir is going to have a concert if you would like to come. The tickets will be sold at The Coffee House and Hope Town School. They have been working really hard and it will sound beautiful. It will also look beautiful because they will be dancing in Androsian print clothing. Hope you can come at The Community Center TONIGHT at 5:30 p.m.
Spring break is coming up soon! I love playing outside with my friends, reading books and spending time with my family. You might have seen me before playing outside before in Hope Town. I love boogy boarding and playing tag. I also love spring break because of my birthday! All my friends come over. There is also Easter. Everybody comes by Sip Sip for the huge Easter Egg hunt! Some eggs ( like the huge green and gold ) have money inside of them. Last year some of my family members were obsessed with them. It was so funny! I can’t wait till spring break! By : Ella
The month of love is here. It’s February my dear. Valentine’s day is next week. Don’t forget that birds have beaks. Gather your chocolate, roses, and cards. Give them to your loved ones as a reward, for the love they’ve given you and the things they’ve done for you. Its Valentine’s Day. Hip Hip Hooray !
The High school entrance tests are coming up and they sure are pretty nerve racking. So you sixth graders better start studying for that entrance test. The students applying to St. Francis have already been tested. The Forest Heights’ exam is coming up on March 4th. The Agape test is still a few weeks away. Let’s all hope that the students from all around get in. The subjects on the exams are reading, math, and language. Personally i am very scared that i will fail but at the same time very confident. It’s a weird mix of feelings! It will be a very big change regardless of where you come from and where you are going. Good luck to all!
