With five wins and seven losses, it was a great season for the girls’ soccer team under coaches Morgan Maclearie and Courtney Hammell. One highlight of the season came in a game against HW Mountz (the undefeated team) in our league. It was 3-2 and it was a tough game as we only lost by one goal. Marielys Ramirez scored one goal and Ella Minsky came with the second goal!
There were 15 girls on the team. In eighth grade were Claire Cooperman, Jackie Niece, Ella Minsky, Nora Gregory, Genesis Pimentel, Lizbeth Quiroz, and Celian Torres.
“It’s going to be a huge loss next year without our eighth graders,” said Miss Maclearie. “Most have played for us since fifth grade! The younger players have some big shoes to fill once they graduate.” Read more

With less than a year to go before the next presidential election, a lot of candidates are working hard to become the new face of America and capture the attention, money and votes of the American public. Here at Bradley Beach Elementary School, students are curious about what exactly is going on with the race.
“There are a lot of new people, especially that dude with the really long name. I really like him,” said Henry Lleyva, an eighth-grader.
Henry was talking about Pete Buttigieg ( pronounced boot-edge-edge). He is running to become the Democatic nominee for the 2020 presidential election. Whoever wins the Democratic party nomination (during a series of primary elections between February and June) will have the opportunity to run against President Donald Trump, who is seeking a second term. (More about that later).
According to a recent Quinnipiac University Poll, the four current frontrunners are former vice president Joe Biden, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders. (A poll is a survey of a sample of people who answer questions, sometimes over the telephone.) Read more

When you get home from a long day of school, you want to eat a big plate of food. Most of the time when you get home, there is not an adult. Usually, when there is not an adult home you tend to go for the chips. That is not such a good idea. They are not healthy and some contain chemicals like sodium bisulfate, a substance that is also put in toilet cleaners! Now those chips don’t sound so yummy!
In this series of articles, I will give you some quick and healthy after-school alternatives designed for kids who are allowed to cook. If you do not have much experience in the kitchen you should always have adult supervision.
Rice and Beans
The ingredients that you will need are:
- white rice (pre-made – 2 cups)
- black beans (canned – 10 ounces)
- salsa (you can use any kind of salsa – 1/2 cup)
- onion powder (1 teaspoon)
- garlic powder ( 1 tablespoon)
- vegetable stock (¼ cup)
- vegetable oil (2 tablespoons)
Put the oil in your pan and put it on medium heat. Then add vegetable stock, onion, and garlic powder while stirring. When it starts to bubble, add salsa and set with a lid for two minutes. Next, add the beans and mix for two minutes. Make rice according to the directions. Add in and mix. After you mix, let cool. Now you can eat! Enjoy!
