    • BOOK OF THE WEEKSkeleton Creek(Mystery)Patrick Carman
      Ryan has to keep writing, no matter how much it hurts. He has to explain what happened that night.
      This is my first entry in my journa l— "It’s been two weeks since it happened, but this morning when I heard the 5:30 train, suddenly I slipped back in time, and it wasn’t a train, it was something more evil, more deadly, and it was chasing me.” But then I woke up enough to remember that I was back home, back in Skeleton Creek. As long as I was awake, I decided to do the one thing that had always made me feel better—write about that night and what came after.
      CHECK IT OUT IN THE NORTHRIDGE MEDIA CENTER!!! Read the series…………

    • MATH: PROBLEM OF THE WEEK
      A man has to be at work by 9:00 a.m. and it takes him 15 minutes to get dressed, 20 minutes to eat and 35 minutes to walk to work. What time should he get up?
    • MATH ANSWER
      9 hours - (15 + 20 + 35)     
      9 hours - 70 minutes    
      7 hours + 120 minutes - 70 minutes = 7 hours and 50 minutes = 7:50 AM
    • FUN SCIENCE FACTS
      DID YOU KNOW??????????
      Snakes are true carnivorous because they eat nothing but other animals. They do not eat any type of plant material.
    • ANALOGY OF THE WEEK
      TARANTULA : SPIDER :: _____ : award
      recognize
      Emmy
      withhold
    • ANALOGY OF THE WEEK ANSWER
      EMMY
      The best answer is Emmy. The relationship between the first pair of words, TARANTULA and SPIDER, is that of item to category—one word names something that fits into falls into the category, or group, named by the other word. Therefore, the second pair of words must also have an item-to-category relationship. An Emmy is a type of award.
