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.

Kid's Corner Story of the Week: What do we celebrate on the Fourth of July?

July 08, 2017 - 10:18

By Sofia Frank, 8th grade

Every year since 1941, when the 4th of July became a federal holiday, Americans have celebrated the Fourth of July. We all know that Independence Day is celebrated on the 4th of July but the real question is ‘what do we celebrate?’ Though most people in the United States plainly sit and watch fireworks and throw sparklers, there is something more to what they celebrate; there must be, they celebrate it every year. Maybe it’s not as much in what they do, but more in what the holiday stands for.

If I were a wild animal...

If I were a wild animal I would not be any ordinary animal I’d be an animal that I would want to spend my whole life as. And that wild animal would be an animal that is fierce and strong, something high up on the food chain for sure, also an animal that is nice and beautiful. I think I would be a Bald Eagle. I have always wanted to soar higher than the tallest building in the world which is Burj Khalifa located in United Arab Emirates. I would also be the national bird of America. I would live longer than most birds and I could fly really fast.

If I were king for a day...

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

May 31, 2017 - 17:07

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.
