THE AWFUL WIZARD
by Aili Sneezy, Age 7 nce upon a time, there lived an awful wizard named Leo. Leo was awful because he was the worst wizard that ever lived, he couldn’t even brew his own potion or get his magic to work. One day he met a witch that sold him a potion that would make him the best wizard that ever lived. He took the potion and nothing happened. But the next morning, he was a duck. “She tricked me,” said Leo. “Never trust a witch.” The End
GYM 1 AND ZOOM ARE MY FAVORITES By Jenna James, Age 12 y favorite thing to do at the Boys & Girls Club is playing in Gym 1 and playing dodgeball because everyone is very competitive, but it’s fun. And its breaks up the little groups of kids that always hang out with each other. And the staff is always involved and has nobody that they treat differently. I also like playing soccer because people always play and there is always good players that get you to challenge yourself. That’s why gym 1 is my favorite area. My second favorite is zoom because we always have something planned to do in there. And we barely watch movies, unlike last year. And Dora always has something fun for us to do, and when we finish she gives us another thing. And she always makes us clean no matter what. She treats us like the age we are and lets us do more advanced things than the first grade.
DODGEBALL IS THE BEST ACTIVITY by Alex Higgs Age 11 he best activity that we did was dodgeball in gym 2. It’s my favorite activity because Tyler from the staff runs it. He runs it like old-fashioned dodgeball and if you have 2 balls then you’re out. If you catch the ball and your teammates are out, he comes back in, but only one person can come back in. If you try to block the ball and the ball gets knocked out of your hands, you are out. If the ball hits the ball you have in your hand and then it hits you, you’re not out. If it hits the bleachers then hits you or if you catch the person that threw it, then it isn’t out and if it hits you you are not out. If it’s the last person

and you’re out then the other team wins and you restart the game. Also, you can reach across the line to get a ball, but if your body crosses,then you’re out. It’s my favorite activity and hopefully some of yours too.
THE REASON I LOVE DODGEBALL
by Joe, Age 11 y favorite activity is dodgeball in gym. The reason I love dodgeball is I was the dodgeball king at my old school. Another reason I love dodgeball is because I played it my whole life. I have little legs which make it easier to dodge all the balls. I don’t grow fast so I’m small, which makes me a harder target. My second favorite activity is computers and game room. The game I usually play on the computers is bad eggs. In the game room I play cards, but the game I play on cards is kips. In computers I play a lot of people. When I play pool I win not that much, but I still try.
I REALLY LIKE BUILDING THINGS
by Jaden Atkins, Age 12 y favorite activity at the Boys & Girls Club is art class. We’ve done many fun, creative and clever things. I really like building things, so that’s probably why I like it so much. So far, my favorite thing in art room that we’ve done was make rotating boxes. I’m really looking forward to making paper mache masks. My 2nd favorite class is zoom. And that’s because we don’t do much there. It’s mostly an interactive room, where we can’t talk to our friends. My favorite thing we’ve done in there was eat jello and go outside and watch Halloween town.
