z-editorial meeting was running long. Submissions were scattered all over the table. The cookies on the snack table were taunting us! Yet we could not decide upon a theme for this issue. It seemed an impossible task.

We organized and reorganized the submissions until, finally, success. The theme is to be… SPRINKLES!!!

They symbolize Celebration! Pandora’s Box! creativity, assortment, color, After many more great ideas excitement, and so much had been thought of, we still more! And... who doesn’t could not all agree. love sprinkles???

fall by Mycah White (grade 6) the crunch under my feet, piles of leaves where my dad had raked the red, brown, yellow leaves trail behind me a leaf flutters down the large plant enclosed in bark, leaves the massive trunk, the long limbs, the way the leaf twirls and sways in the wind.

A Birthday Party by Courtnay Spaulding (grade 2)

To have a birthday party, you need to buy invitations. Next you write out the invitations. Then you give them to the people you want at your party. You will need to buy decorations like balloons, streamers, cups, plates, napkins, and other favors. Then you will need a birthday cake and candles to put on top of the cake. You can buy a number candle of your age. Or you can buy straight candles as many as the age you are. Now you are ready for your party. Have a fun time and I hope people bring you lots of presents.

Where I'm From by Jonah Caum (grade 6)

I'm from the world of sports. The Red Sox, the Patriots, the Bruins, and the Celtics. I'm from the world of craziness. I’m from weirdness, awesomeness, and annoyance. I'm from a world of learning, Math, reading, writing, science and social studies. I'm from Mexico, The ocean, the beach sand, and the hotels Baja California, and surfing. I'm from a world of electronics. Video games, iPods, iPads, and portable music. I'm from Me, Jonah. Me, as in a positive kid, an amazing athlete. A loving family, an annoying brother, and, A charming young man.

Training A Dog by Marlayna King (grade 2)

Training a dog is sometimes easy and training a dog is sometimes hard. When I trained my dog I found it is not always easy. I have seen some tricks are easy to do and some tricks are really hard to do. One thing I would love to train my dog to do is take out the trash. I would also love, love, love if he would get the mail. It would also be great if he could pick up my room. If he could clean my room he would chew my clothes to bits, and if he could get the mail he would chew the mail to bits. Now we are moving to fetching the ball. He is not good with it. He’ll get the ball but he won’t bring it back. Illustration by Sammy Genaway (grade K) page 13

Couplets

by Jayda Golden (grade 4)

Softball is really fun. I wish I hit a home run. Moms like to cook, So they have to read a book.

One day I planted a tree, When I was three.

Camping
is
cool. I
wish
there
was
a
pool.

One day I went to the beach, And I saw a leech.

My
dad
is
so
sweet, And
he
does
not
like
to
 compete.

Locked Out! by Eva Svec (grade 3)

“Audrey, you’re babysitter is here!” “Uhhhh!” I said. I was just in the middle of a really good book! Now I have to do whatever the boring babysitter wants me to do! At least that’s usually what happens! But I ran downstairs anyway despite the fact that I really didn’t want to. Actually I slid down the looooong banister to the floor; I love to do that. Then I ran to the front door to give my mom and dad hugs and kisses before they left. “Wow” I exclaimed. I thought they were going somewhere fancy, but not this fancy. I mean, “Wow!” My mom was wearing a silk violet dress with an aqua blue shawl. She looked great. My dad looked really good too in the new suit he got. My babysitter Nicole said, “We’re actually sort of coming with you, Mr. and Mrs. Levine. We’re going to the zoo.” So we went to the zoo, and my parents went to their fancy dinner thing. It all went well till the end. I came back from the awesome zoo with my even more awesome babysitter. We went to open the front door but when we tried the door it was LOCKED! I said, “Don’t worry! There’s a back door!” But when we tried the back door, it was locked, too! “SHOOT!” we both said at the same time. “Wait, I know where the spare key is.” “Great,” replied Nicole. I got the spare key, and I opened the back door with it. Then I smiled at Nicole, and she smiled broadly back.

National Parks by Austin Stoodey (grade 2)

Did you know that there are 400 national parks in the United States? Not every state has a national park. In New England, the only state that has one is Maine. Some states have more than one. Alaska and Hawaii each have eight national parks. Yellowstone was the first national park in the United States. It has been a national park since 1872. It is three different states—Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana. Anyone can visit these parks. There are many fun things you can do when you go to one. You can go camping, so bring a tent. Some parks have cabins you can stay in. Many parks are by rivers, lakes, or the ocean. If you go to those parks you can swim, fish, or go boating. There are parks in the mountains. You can go hiking there. There are many animals that live in national parks. When you go to a national park, you might see deer, wolves, moose, elk, foxes, owls, ducks, bison, and many more animals. I have enjoyed learning about national parks. Someday I would like to go camping at a national park. Wouldn’t you like to go stay at a national park?

My Favorite Animal is a Kitten Story and illustrations by Cameron Corliss (grade 2)

I like kittens because they are cute, cuddly, and fluffy. They are soft. I like to play with my kittens with a feather. I wiggle the feather, they follow the feather. I love my kittens because they’re adorable and fun.

Merrily... Poem and illustration by Kimberly Cummings (grade 2)

Hit hit hit your yarn gentle up the stairs. Meow meow meow don't put me in the bath. Run run run your way gentle through the cones. Attack attack attack good job K-9 dog. Eat eat eat your tart careful through the house. Desert desert desert what a good snack. Row row row your boat gentle down the stream. Merrily merrily merrily life is but a dream.

What’s OObleck? by Ange Wunderle (grade 5) OOblek is a solid and a liquid. It's a solid because when you pick it up, it stays in a "ball." But when you handle it fast, it turns into a liquid. When you make OOblek you use liquid glue and liquid starch (make sure you use the same amount of each) and add food dye (optional). But if you make it with peanut butter and chocolate then it's not OOblek... it's OOyum!

Monster Trucks by Rory Carroll (grade 2)

Do you know there are monsters that are not out on Halloween but are trucks? They’re modified pickup trucks. Let me tell you about monster trucks. Monster trucks have a roll cage that protects the drivers if they get in a crash. They do freestyle events. In a freestyle event, they race over jumps and try to get as high in the air as they can. That’s what I like about them. They page 31


have a remote that’s called a RII or a kill switch. It is a switch that will kill the motor. Did you know that the first monster truck made was called Big Foot? It was built in 1974. A monster truck weighs 9,000 pounds including the driver and the fuel. They have thick tread to grip in to the dirt. I would like to drive a monster truck some time. They are every noisy and really cool. I can’t wait until I am old enough.

Everyone is Famous by Falisha Maly (grade 5)

Everyone is famous in their own way. That's what famous means. No one is more famous than anyone. Everyone is famous in many ways of their own. Every one is famous if they believe that they are. If you want to be famous, don't worry: you are famous in your own way!

Talent My Story and illustration by Tristan Prescott (grade 2)

WOW! I hear so much when I do my talent. Do you want to now what it is? It is absolutely awesome! I do gymnastics. I love tumbling in the air. I started when I was 3 years old. I was the only one out of my sisters that didn't do Mommy and Me classes. When I got older, I started to do much harder skills. Now I might be a Level 5. That is my talent.

JJ and TAY TAY Poem by JJ= Jeb Monier (grade 3) & TAY TAY= Ty Merrill (grade 4) There once was a man named Bill. He went to see Dr. Phil. He jumped so high, He touched the sky, He used chopsticks to catch a fly. Then he went to the store. He was really poor. He went to see the movie “Thor.” He met a girl named Sandy. She had 5 boxes of candy And a secret boyfriend named Randy. Frog illustration by Carys Bickford (grade 1) Then after the movie he called Sandy a witch, and Then her boyfriend Randy threw him in a ditch. Then he went home and he was sad, And he said, “That was the worst day I ever had.” The next day he went to the science fair, And he went running around in his underwear. He got kicked out and started to pout. He went to see his sister to treat her blister. page 35


He went to his grandma and started to eat a banana, Then he sat on a chair and ate a pear. After that he got so fat he looked like a rat. He had an awful week; he was called a geek. And his teacher said, “You wreak!� Then he went to his baseball game. He hit a home run. Then everyone shouted his name. Then he thought he was in the Hall of Fame. 20 years later he went to the MLB. Then he discovered he dislocated his knee. Then he could never play again, Even with his hen in the chicken pen. When he was 65, he did a penny drive, And almost got killed by a bee hive. Then he turned 80, And he hated Tom Brady. So he slapped him across the face, And sprayed him with mace. When he died, Everyone cried. That was the story of Bill. (Oh, and, by the way, he had a fish named Fill that took a pill.) (And also we like RICE AND SOAP.) page 36

Where I'm From by Jarett Silva (grade 6)

I am from the ashes of Tennessee The tar pits under the hills The finger tips of my grandpa Willie From an apartment of red bricks and white cement I'm from dust and germs and power From genetics and blood and flesh From my beloved parents and siblings I'm from black paint of flowing liquid A three dimensional creature Searching for you every single day I'm from love and soul, to really love somebody To think about it every single day I'm only half way there, almost there

Helen Keller by Emillia Gomo (grade 2)

I found out a lot about an amazing little girl named Helen Keller. I would like to share with you. Helen was blind and deaf. When she was one she had a terrible illness. After the illness she couldn’t hear or see. When she was a little girl she ran around the house like crazy screaming. She was confused. She didn’t understand that she wasn’t supposed to do that. Than Annie Sullivan came into her life. Annie helped Helen understand her new world. She taught Helen how to read and write with Braille. When Helen got older she wrote books. Her most famous book is the book about her own life. The book is called The Story of My Life. It all started at the water pump. Annie put Helen’s hands under the water pump. So Helen could feel the water Annie spelled water in Helen’s hand. Than Helen ran to the house touching everything, having Annie spell the words in her hand. This was an important day for Helen. She could now understand and communicate. I learned a lot about this amazing little girl I admired and look up to her. page 44

Poem

by Cailyn Williams (grade 5)

So much trust depends upon a grateful Teacher. So bright, so confident in himself to the Children. Bringing a joy to all and all Joy. Bringing school to life as he dances with Words. Sipping from his cup quietly as he Teaches. The joy to life, and joy to that Teacher.
