Student Life

Hi students, it's Tyler here for week 13 of student life. Last Friday was the 8th grade dance and from what I hear it was pretty cool. Anyways, the first semester just ended so grades are coming in and I hope you guys all got the design lab you wanted. There is also more good news, we have Friday off so four day weekend! This weeks weather is told to be mostly rain so make sure you put on a sweatshirt this week! That's all for this week, see you guys next week!


Katelynn Thackeray is student of the week! She is chill, weird, and very funny. She came to VIDA because it looked new and she thought it would be a fun experience. Her favorite thing about VIDA is the dances and her friends. Her best friends are Leslie and Josie. At lunch she spends time with her best friends, plays tag, and listens to music. Her favorite subject is character leaders and in her freetime, she plays soccer. When she grows up she wants to be a doctor.

The teacher of the week is…



Mrs. Buckley is an 8th grade teacher and also teaches the Yearbook elective. She has been teaching for 11 years and 5 years at VIDA. She has also taught at Madison Middle School and Washington Middle School. Mrs. Buckley attended at Arizona Western Community College to get her diploma. Her favorite thing to do on her free time is to travel because she says that travel changes who you are and you get to experience different cultures. When she was little, she wanted to be a teacher because her family were teachers and she has achieved her goal.



Danica Manligas is a 8th grade student in Mrs.Buckley’s class. Who made a poem about the ocean. Also she made one about darkness. Danica Manligas inspiration was the ocean because she thought of it when she was at the beach. She came up with her other wonderful poem because she was in a depressed mood. Danica made her poems due to a class assignment. She has never done anything like this before and it took her 3 full days to make this creation.


This week's trend is season 7 Fortnite. Fortnite is super fun and a game for all. You can play it anywhere and everyone with want to join you! Now they have Airplanes and Unvaulted, where you can play with old weapons that are no longer in the Game!
