  • How to Make a Pizza

    Written and Researched by Mr. Wisniewski.

    Learn how to quickly and easily make one of the worlds most

    popular foods!

    You could make this delicious pizza at

    home for less than the cost of one

    youd buy at the store!

    Ask a group of people what their

    favorite food is and you probably wouldnt

    be surprised if most said pizza. You

    probably would be surprised, however, to

    learn that it is easy to make this popular

    and delicious food at home!

    A trip to any grocery store should

    provide you with what you need. Youll

    need pre-made dough, tomato sauce,

    mozzarella cheese, basil, oregano, parsley, salt, and pepper.

    Now you are ready to begin! First, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Next youll have to

    put the sauce on the dough. This is done by putting about a tablespoonful of sauce on the center

    of the dough and using the spoon to spread it from the center towards the edges in a clockwise,

    spiral-like direction; about four tablespoons of sauce should do the trick. Next, shred 4 oz. of

    mozzarella and spread it evenly over the dough. Now youre ready to season your pizza. Sprinkle

    a little bit of salt and pepper, and slightly less than a teaspoonful each of basil, oregano, and

    parsley evenly over the pizza.

    Carefully put your pizza in the oven and bake it at 450 for about 15 minutes, or until the

    cheese is golden brown. When it is finished, be sure to let it cool before slicing and enjoying it!

  • A Pet Parents Guide to Adoption

    MONTH YEAR VOL. # ONE ISSUE #1

    Writtten and researched by Mr. Espinosa

    Adopting a pet is a life changing experience. Adopting a pet is a big consideration for both the family adopting and the pet being adopted. It is important that there is a good match

    between the two and that the adopting family accepts all the responsibilities that come

    with caring for a pet. It is important for the family to do research and discuss their

    expectations. The next step would be the matchmaking process. Some considerations

    should include: the familys lifestyle and the needs of the pet, time and space, financial

    costs, and medical care.

    Petfinder.com is an organization that is committed to finding good homes for pets. It was

    founded in 1995. Today, the organization saves 200,000 pets a month. The annual number

    of animals who are euthanized has drop from 16 million per year to 3 to 4 million. Because

    so many animals are put to death, it is important to that makes a real difference in our

    society.

    Be patient when finding a match for your family. Theres a pet for everyone, but we realize

    that every pet isnt right for every person. says Kim Saunders, author of The Adopted Bible

    and vice president for shelter outreach for Petfinder.com. Twenty-five percent of the

    animals in shelters are purebred. When you are matchmaking, keep in mind what type of

    family you are. Its just a question of matching personalities.

    Pets need love and care. It makes life easier if everyone in the family pitches in and helps

    care for the pet. It can be an overwhelming experience if the responsibilities fall to one

    person. By having everyone in the family involved, the pet will bond with all members of

    the family and feel a true place in the family. Caring for a pet is a rewarding experience.

    Welcome your new family member and monitor how your pet is adjusting to the

    new living environment. Introduce your pet to each family member slowly and

    quietly. Lastly, keep your pet healthy and safe. Health insurance and micro

    chipping are important considerations. Enjoy your new pet and give them a lot of

    love.

  • Kwanzaa Written and researched by Ms. Mejia

    Kwanzaa is a seven day African-American celebration.

    http://www.officialkwanzaawebsite.org/7principles.shtml, January 11,

    2012.

    http://www.apples4theteacher.com/holidays/kwanzaa/when-is-kwanzaa.html

    Pictures: http://sf.funcheap.com/1217-kwanzaa-family-night/

    Kwanzaa is a weeklong celebration of African values, culture and black power. The word Kwanzaa means first fruit in

    Swahili. It is a time of ending and of new beginnings as symbolized by its dates at the end of the year and the beginning of

    the new year. It begins on December 26 and goes through January 1. Kwanzaa celebrates 7 principals, one on each day of

    celebration.

    The week begins with Umoja which means Unity. Umoja states that success starts with unity of family, community, nation

    and race. Next comes Kujichagulia meaning self-determination. Through

    Kujichagulia one is encouraged to take responsibility for oneself and ones destiny. The third day, celebrates Ujima which

    means collective work and responsibility. Ujima encourages the building and maintaining of the community by helping one

    another. Next comes Ujamaa which means collective economics. Ujamaa focuses on building and maintain African-

    American owned stores and establishment within the African-American community. Following that, is Nia which means

    purpose. The purpose is to restore African-American people to their former greatness of culture. The sixth day is Kuumba

    which means creativity. Using Kuumba, the people are encouraged to make the community better than what they inherited

    via creativity. The last day is Imani which means faith. Imani celebrates African-Americans believing in their own people,

    family, community, leaders and the righteousness of African-American people.

    By celebrating Kwanzaa members of the African-American community are encouraged to look back to their culture for

    strength and support. They are encouraged to improve themselves and those around them in order to create a better

    community and a better future for all in their community.

  • A Christmas Carol The Story that Transcends Time

    Written and researched by A. DAmbra

    How can a

    story be just

    as popular

    today as it

    was over 150

    years ago?

    Marley was dead: to begin with.

    And so begins Charles Dickens A

    Christmas Carol. Published in 1843,

    this classic tale has evolved over the

    past 165 years and shows no sign of

    stopping. How has this Christmas

    story lasted so long?

    Although Christmas is associated with Christianity, and Dickens does

    make reference to Christ, the focus of his book is not religious. Dickens

    made A Christmas Carol more of a universal story with the simple

    theme of celebration: a time to come together with family and friends,

    a time to celebrate whether rich or poor.

    Throughout the years there have been countless variations to Dickens

    original story. Regardless of any changes several key items remain: a

    Scrooge who has no Christmas spirit, spirits who are out to help, a

    hardworking employee, and a very sweet child. The characters are

    believable and relatable and the theme attainable for all, perhaps this

    is the reason for its success.

    And of course as Dickens so eloquently ends this classic tale:

    It was always said of Scrooge, that he knew how to keep Christmas

    well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said

    of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God Bless Us, Every

    One!
