Fall/Fair break is next week. Even though school is out, you should be reading every day. I can't wait to dig into a few books on my list during our time off! Remember, you don't have to be at school to take those AR tests!
Below I would like to share an essay one of my stellar students wrote:
My 5 Opinions About Things Wrong In This Earth
Another problem is unfairness. Sometimes people are treated unfairly just because they are different. Like Martin Luther King, JR was black and he tried really hard to change segregation. Now blacks and whites still need to encourage each other. I believe that our skin and hair is just the outside. What matters most is your inside.
My third opinion is that you shouldn't have to pay for life needs. Some homeless people don't have money for food and water. A lot of people suffer and lose family members because they don't have needs. My family has that problem of not enough money for bills. People have to pay around 200 dollars for a car. I think we should lower prices a lot for the homeless and poor.
My fourth problem is drugs and crime. People should not have access to drugs unless the doctor gives them some. When people are drugged, they sometimes go crazy. They will kill people, injure them and get themselves in trouble. Sometimes they steal without drugs. When they just steal because they want it they break the commandments. If people would be thankful for what they have, they would be a better person.
I want to help donate to people who lost things in the natural disasters.
