March Mania

Andrew Howell


The CNN 24 news crew sent me, Andrew Howell, to ask fellow students what they think about March is Reading Month.

First I asked 2 students what their favorite part of March is Reading Month is. Robert D. likes the Mystery Readers. Aidan Z. likes the games where you go from class to class.

Next, I asked 2 students what they think should be added to March is Reading Month. Jon R. thinks there should be games based on reading. Mario P. thinks there should be an addition to the book donation and donate some books to the Collins Library.

Finally, I asked 2 students what they think should be changed about March is Reading Month. Christian E. thinks the prizes should be changed. Ben J. thinks Mystery Readers should be changed to make it easier for the little kids. Now, I am looking forward to this March is Reading Month!

The Play Sets of the Playground

Theresa Stapels


I have been noticing that the play sets out on the playground are getting old to some students. But, maybe the cause is the cold weather? We haven’t been outside for ages, and Mr. Hurley might not want to upgrade our play sets yet.

I think that the time for action has come. They should maybe try to get some fresh sets to enjoy and have fun on. This summer should be the deadline for more sets. I think that most students would agree that it is time for change!

Here are some opinions from fellow students: Gavin, a 5th grader, agrees with the statement of more sets! Jaden also agrees. Kaia, a 5th grader, declared that we desire more play sets! The only recent play set was for kindergarteners! They don’t know how to play! We do! We… know how to destroy play sets! That wasn’t true, actually. We know how to have respect for property! And if we get one, we won’t be tempted to sell us off as kindergarteners to play on the new play set! Hope, a 4th grader, also agrees greatly. Gwen, a 5th grader, says that we need more play sets! The upper L needs WAY more sets!

My personal look on things for the playground is to get MORE! We haven’t been given anything for the past few months! All that learning with no rewards! We need more sets so we don’t kick rocks to have the least bit of fun! It’ll lower our spirits to know that learning will only pay off in ten years! If I could interview the other students, they would all agree to be rewarded for once! So, please give us a new play set! For fun!

More topics are more interviews next time on CNN 24!
