Today, students took a break from their hard work to enjoy a movie about American high school life.
We watched the movie Mean Girls, the #1 movie of 2004. This movie is about a girl from Africa named Cady who enters the American school system for the first time, and tries to make friends and succeed in school. But there are many unfamiliar social rules about American high school life, and Cady makes some serious mistakes before finding her place at school.
This picture shows Cady sitting with a group of girls called "the Plastics" -- the rich and beautiful but very mean girls at her high school.
