Story of the Week

Create your very own fairy tale: Rapunzla

by HANNA FOX, Age 12

There once was a kingdom named Corona. It was a beautiful island. Inside the walls of Corona the queen was having a baby girl. But the queen was getting really sick. The king could not find a cure for this sickness. He searched every corner of his library. Then he found this tiny book stuffed away. The king looked in the book and he finally found a cure. It was for a fruit which was scarce. Ezra, the awful witch coveted the fruit. So the king took his 5 best men to look for the fruit. They looked for a week before they found the fruit.

If I were king for a day...

by BRADY L.A. ROGERS, Age 14

If I were king for a day...

My focus would be to help the people of my hometown. First, I would hold a town meeting to find out what was important to the people. Whether it was building new roads or buildings and stores. I’d show them how to lookout for each other-see a need fill a need, by starting funds for the homeless or the sick-important things like that.

People look up to kings. And even though I would only be one for a day, I’d like to show everyone what one person can do, whether you’re a king or not.

My Goals for the Summer

Age: 12
There are so many things I want to do over the summer. I would like to get a quarter way through the 8/7 math book. This summer I would like like to improve my swimming skills. Also I am keen to read as many books as I can. When I go up north to my grandmother’s I would like to run up her mountain in record breaking time. Besides that I would also like to make the largest mud pie. I would like to improve in my typing skills so I can be a better typist and so I can type faster. I hope I can reach all my goals this summer.
