A Wrinkle in Time marks the first major misstep in director Ava DuVernay career. She previously directed the Oscar nominated Selma and the hit Netflix documentary 13th. Even though DuVernay is going to take most of the blame for the film’s poor quality, as most directors do, it isn’t completely her fault. The writing and to a lesser extent the acting and visuals are the main reasons why A Wrinkle in Time falls flat.
The Centennial Speech Team is finally wrapping up their season, just having gone to regionals at U-High on February 3rd. There are only six members of this team, but each student was ready to work hard, most having performed in not one but two events. An event is the type of speech you perform, and there are fourteen different kinds. These events range from humorous or dramatic acting to informative or persuasive speeches.

Congratulations Centennial Students, we can finally wear hats in school. During last semester Mr. Riegler decided to talk to the teachers about what they think about allowing hats in school. He also talked to some students to see how they would feel about hats being allowed. Most of the teachers and students decided that they wouldn’t mind hats in classes. Mr. Riegler decided the new semester would be a great time to start this new rule. No hoods allowed but now your ears can be nice and toasty in class and you can hide your bad hair day with a nice hat.

With a new head coach Illini men’s basketball is starting their season off 7-4 which is giving their fans hope that they can have a winning season. I feel like Illini can have a great season this year if they can just finish strong at the end of their games because their three losses they have ended up within a seven point difference. But if they can finish the preseason strong and have a good conference record they will make it to the NCAA tournament.
