Saipan Southern High students are the first to watch the movie, "Alice in Wonderland."

Saipan Southern High School students enjoyed reading the book, Alice in Wonderland and Looking Through the Glass by Lewis Carroll. They enjoyed a Friday field trip to the movie theater and have a special screening at the Hollywood theater.

Students enjoyed the colorful and entertaining movie Alice in Wonderland. They also had a t-shirt design contest and the mad-hater's design contest. It was a fun event for the students.

You can see more of the details and pictures when you visit the Saipan Southern High School Library on Facebook.

Saipan Southern High School New Moon Field Trip

The wait is over!!! The New Moon Field Trip is here and I think it was worth the wait. 103 students of Saipan Southern High School had a special screening of the New Moon this morning at 9:00 am. It was a thrill to watch the movie and I love that the students were on the edge of their seats. I especially enjoyed the quick screaming on the ending.

My favorite book that I've read in the Reading Rave booklist is ...

Make sure to give the complete title of your book and the author. Make sure that you have clear introduction, body (reasons for choosing the book), and a conclusion. You have a lot of books to choose from and you have over a week to complete this task. Make sure to check the mechanics of your blog (grammar, spelling, etc.). I hope that you'll continue reading and share your fondness of the books you've read to your friends and classmates. As always, it's been a pleasure to have read with you in this class. Mrs. Sudi Napalan

I am currently reading My Sister's Keeper for my own leisure reading. I love the books written by Jodi Picoult. They make you think and she takes you to a journey on the social issues that we have in our society. I hope you'll pick up one of her books to read in the future. If you are interested, you can start with the Pact, Nineteen Minutes or Plain Truth. The main characters are students your age. Again, happy reading!

Chapter 26 - All American Girl

What do you think about the ending of the book? What do you think the sequel for this book will be about?

Chapter 25 - All American Girl

What do you think about the events in Chapter 25? Tell me about it. No word limits.

Chapter 24 - All American Girl

What do you think about Samantha's interview with Candace Wu? Do you think her confession will bring about something positive? How about Lucy and Jack's break-up, do you think Lucy was right dumping Jack because of Samantha? Would you have done the same if you were in her place?

Chapter 23 - All American Girl

Sam went to Susan Boone's house to talk to her. What did she realize at the end of her conversation with her teacher? What would you do after finding out the truth?

Chapter 22 - All American Girl

Sam gives her melo-dramatic reasons why she would most likely die young. Do you think there are facts behind her reasons? What would you do if you were in her place?

Chapter 21- All American Girl

If you were in Sam's place and the president gave you the freedom to choose any teen concerns (those that Sam mentioned), what project will you go for and why? Do you think any of these projects are more important than the others? How so?

Chapter 20 - All American Girl

Do you think Rebecca was right about Sam when she made the statement, " you are completely blind to what's in front of you?" What does she mean by that statement? If you were in Sam's situation, what would you do?
