Here are some of our best stories:

The Oak Tree by Alivia, 6th grade

One day I was climbing up an oak tree when out of nowhere a bridge appeared across a wide lake. The lake was flowing calmly. It was bordered by trees, shrubs and exotic flowers. So me being me, I went to check it out I carefully crossed the bridge and when I got to the other side I stood still in shock. There was a great sanctuary of birds, butterflies, and in the middle of the sanctuary, there was an elegant waterfall with every type of fish you could imagine and here and there was a dolphin jumping in and out of the water. And from then on, anytime I wanted to view this miraculous sight, I would just cross the mysterious bridge.

Stop bullying now by Alivia, 6th grade

Hey kids! Listen up. If you don’t like being bullied, then why bully someone else? Bullying is very mean and rude. Some people have excuses for it like maybe it’s just a joke or they want to impress other kids, but the fact of the matter is that it is bullying no matter the reason or excuse. I have a couple of questions: If we all know that bullying is very mean, then why do we still do it? Why do we laugh when it is done to someone else but when it is done to us we get mad and upset?

Talking Otter by Alivia, 6th grade

The interview:

“So Mr. Otterson, how did you learn how to speak?”

“Well, I have to help build my family’s home and when I go to gather wood I always hear you people speaking, so I come back after I drop the wood off to learn how to speak by listening and repeating the words to myself. Soon I learned how to speak.”

“Mr Otterson, does anyone else in your family know how to speak?”

“Not yet.” Otterson replied matter of factly, “but I am teaching them.”

“Thank you Mr. Otterson and have a wonderful evening.”

Holidays by Casey, 5th grade

Holidays, they come and go. Some people celebrate them in different ways. Some celebrate Christmas with candles. Some use trees. It is what their family decides. It’s just so different and cool that we all go our own ways.

Birthdays by Mackenzie, 3rd grade

Birthdays come and go. We should know because we have them. Every kid loves them! (and Christmas too) because of toys but that not what it’s about. It’s about celebrating a new age.
