GSOTA Survey
By Shayla C & Ariana T
For this week's survey, it'll be about what the GSOTA community thinks about the school lunch. Lunch may not be the most important meal of the day but it's still very important. That's why we need healthy meals so nobody gets sick and more options in case someone is allergic to the lunch or can't have it and they've had nothing to eat, and they feel so bad they pass out because they had P.E.

Spring is a fun season, during the season of Spring there's a spring break for a week! According to,"A non-coiled spring was used in a bow and arrow dating back 64,000 thousand years ago. The first coiled spring was invented in 1763 by R. Tradewell, but the first steel coil spring wasn't developed until 1857. “Coil” was chosen for the name as it referred to winding cylindrically or spirally." In Spring the days get longer!
Summer is a lot of things it is fun and it's fun but there is a question that no one is asking, what is the history of Summer?According to,"The word summer is quite old. It's recorded before the year 900 and comes from the Old English word for the season, sumor. It's related to the Dutch zomer, the German Sommer, and the Sanskrit samā (which means “year”)." Summer is known for being the hottest season of the year and have the longest day of the year!
The word autumn and fall originated in Britain. According to,"Recorded use of the word fall as the name of the third season of the year comes from as early as the 1500s. The name is thought to originate in the phrase the fall of the leaf, in reference to the time of year when deciduous trees shed their leaves." Fall is one of my favorite seasons. Fall used to be called Harvest!
Winter is the coldest season of the year! According to,"winter, coldest season of the year, between autumn and spring; the name comes from an old Germanic word that means “time of water” and refers to the rain and snow of winter in middle and high latitudes." Winter symbolizes the "end of different things." The last time it snowed in Florida was January 3/2022!
Fun Fact :The spiritual meaning of the seasons

According to,"In fall, the growing cycle gives us ripeness and maturity. The harvest is associated with abundance, prosperity and wealth. Humans to experience an “autumn”. If spring represents new birth and childhood, and summer symbolizes youth, autumn represents adulthood and maturity."

Things That Originates From Mexico!

Flamin' Hot Cheetos

 Have you ever wondered where chocolate originated from? The Olmec, one of the earliest civilizations in Latin America, were the first to turn the cacao plant into chocolate. Mexican chocolate is made from coarsely ground cacao, granulated sugar, and cinnamon and also chiles, nuts, and spices can also be worked into the mix, resulting in a complex, intense flavor. Besides its added ingredients, Mexican chocolate also has a more rustic texture than many other styles of chocolate.
Believed by many to be the best snack of all time, Flamin’ Hot Cheetos were actually invented by a mexican called Richard Montañez. One day, a machine broke in the assembly line, causing some Cheetos to not get dusted with the bright orange cheese powder, so Richard took some home and put chili powder on them. He created his own recipe for a spicier version of Cheetos that was inspired by a Mexican street snack called elote (corncob).
His legacy continues to be remembered as one of the pioneers in the history of television colour it was invented by a Mexican called Guillermo González Camarena. He was only 22 when he introduced his self-built colour TV to the country in 1940, and he was to later come up with a ‘trichromatic, field-sequential system’ and ‘improved chromoscopic adapter’ which helped enable the colour transmissions. In 1942 he obtained the patent, and in 1946, he finally screened colour images direct from his Mexico City lab.
How birthstones came to be
Written by Shania M
People's opinion
Most scholars have traced the origins of birthstones back to the book of Exodus in the Bible. In this book, a high priest during the time of Moses named Aaron had a special religious garment. This garment was a breastplate with 12 jewels, each of which was engraved with the names of the 12 tribes of Israel.

For today, I interviewed Lizette Jimenez. The question was, "do you like your birthstone?" she responds with, "yea because it makes me feel special." Lizette's birthstone is pink since her birth month is on October. The second person I interviewed was Isabela, same question was asked. Her answer was, "My birthstone is alright, not really what I like."
Do you like your birthstone?
