Cinco De Mayo - What Is It?

By: Divya Chand & Salmaan Khan

Cinco de Mayo is a holiday to celebrate the victory of "la batalla de Puebla". Mexico was in debt to the French and they decided not to negotiate and wanted a piece of Mexican territory. That was May 5th, 1862. On that day was the Mexican army attacked the French from the north side of Puebla and defeated 6,000 men.

Its important day because it was a great victory for the Mexican people and government because the army was made up of men that were not trained militarily. Many were indigenous or of mixed ancestry. This also gave the people a sense of unity and patriotism.
celebration, decoration 

The people were involved in the Cinco De Mayo were Napoleon's French army and Juarez's make-shift Mexican army.

Mother's Day with Mr. Doolittle

 By Trina Hooker

As we all know, Mother's Day is next Sunday. So I went around asking our teachers about how they would spend Mother's Day. Mr. Doolittle was happy to respond.

What does Mother's Day mean to you?

"It's a bill for a card and flowers. It's a time to show a special person how much I care."

How much does your mother mean to you?

 "My mother means a whole lot to me because without her I wouldn't be talking to you right now."

What are you doing for or with your mother this Mother's day?

"She lives 2500 miles away in Freeport, Illnois, so I'll be calling her and sending her a card."

Do you think your mother will like your gift?

"Yes, she will love to hear from her favorite son!"

On what occasions do you get together with your mother?

"[I get together with my mother] on Thanksgiving and sometimes over [the] Summer."

Exploring The SEVA

By David Coleman and Alisia Baca
Joseph Gonsolis

For more than 20 years, SECC( Sacramento Educational Cable Consordium) has worked with students and teachers exploring video production. The SEVA contest is open to all Sacramento county students.

It celebrates the talents and visions of student video producers. All winners and participants are recognized at SECC's SEVA Award Night each spring.

Winning videos and producer interviews are shown on cable and online.

Joseph Gonsolis made a video called Bullying: The Truth Behind Your Eyes. This video came in as one of the finale five.

What made him choose to do this video was because as a kid he was bullied and he wanted to show people the effects of bullying and hopefully open minds and eyes.

He wanted people to see how horrible bullying can be.Below is Joseph's video.
