From Robert A.
I am thankful for being able
to be in school. The reason I’m
saying this is because, not many
kids can go to school. When
my parents were in school they
didn’t make it to college. They
didn’t go to college because
they didn’t have enough money.
When they told me they didn’t
go to college, I tried to do well
in school. When ever I told my
mom I fi nished all my work, she
was happy. She is very proud
of me. I was also very proud
of myself. So that’s what I’m
thankful for.

named Bolt he usually calms me
down. Also I’m thankful for my
Grandma because she helps me
with my things. I’m thankful
for my house because if I didn’t
have one I’d be on the streets.
I’m thankful for my rabbit
that died because he was my
fi rst et. I’m also thankful for my
mom’s car because if we didn’t
have it I’d be riding the bus to
school. I’m thankful for my sis-
ter because she helps me.

From Joslyn V.
I am thankful for my family. I
am thankful for the family that
I have. My family is sweet and
kind to me. My brother, Alex, is
one of the nicest people I know.
My dad is super nice too. He
pushes me hard to get better
at things. My mom is so sweet
and kind, as are the rest of my
family. I also have a dog named
Rocky, he is a kinda sweet dog,
but he can be rough and bite.
Rocky is a dog that loves to play
fetch before I go to bed so I play
with him but all the other hours
of the day, Rocky, he just sleeps
all day long. One of the laziest
dogs I know. I am also thankful
for the friends I have. My best
friend is named Kylee. She is
nice and I love her as a friend.
I love it when she comes over
to my house. We have so much
fun. Another one of my best
friends, her name is Allison.
She is an enthusiastic person.
She is also nice and funny. She
is one of my best friends. I like
to hang out with her at recess.
From Emily P.
From Valery R.
I am thankful for family be-
cause they care about me. My
mom says to me and my broth-
er, sometimes not all kids have
good parents like we do. I feel
bad for those kids, but at least I
have good parents. My Grand-
parents watch and take care of
me after school until my mom
gets off work. Speaking of my
mom’s work, she works all
week and sometimes on Satur-
days. I’m happy for her because
she’s the boss of two banks. So
she earn just enough to keep a
roof over our heads. I’m thank-
ful for how hard my mom and
Grandparents work. I love them
for that.
From Allison P.

dad always fi xes my quad and
trampoline. My mom cleans up
my room and washes the laun-
dry. I am also thankful for my
brother because he takes me
places and buys me stuff. My
scooter is my favorite thing
to ride. I’ve learned an 1806,
1360 barspins, tailwhip and mor
tricks and I am thankfull for
my two dogs and cat. I am also
thankful for a house and that
I’m not poor. That’s what I’m
thankful for.
From. Drake D.
I am thankful for my family
because they love me just like I
love them. My family is always
there for me when I need them.
My mom is my best friend and
she loves me. My dad makes
me laugh whenever I’m sad.
My little brother makes things
fun whenever I’m bored. My
big brother helps me to suc-
ceed. I am also very thankful
for our baby who is on its way.
My cat lucy can even be funny
sometimes. My family always
encourages me to succeed and
they keep me happy no matter
what! We all love eachother. All
together we make a perfect fam-
ily. I would not be myself if it
weren’t for my family. I have a
lot of family and they are also a
big part of my life. This is only
part of the reason I love my
From Jocelyn T.
I am thankful for my friends.
We should all be thankful for
our lives because it is what we
love the most. Some people are
or should be thankful for our
families. A lot of people are
thankful for our pets because
they are fun to play with. I am
thankful for my mom and dad.
I am thankful for the games so
we can always be happy. School
is what I am also thankful for so
we can all learn. I like exercis-
ing sometimes because I want to
stay in shape. I love my life be-
cause I have fun. We love holi-
days and everything else in the
world that is nice and lovingly.
I am thankful for my step-
mom Wendy and my pug Roth-
Lee. I am thankful for Wendy
is because Wendy makes deli-
cious food and takes me and my
brother to very fun places. She
also takes really good care of
me and my brothers. She buys
me a lot of clothes and shoes.
I’m happy that she takes me to
horror movies and spends a lot
of time with me. I am so lucky
to have her. Why I am thankful
for my pug Roth-Lee is because
he always tries to cheer me up
when I’m sad and tried to get
me to play with him. He is re-
ally fun to play tug of war with
him. Even though he is old he
still plays like a puppy (some-
times). When my baby brother
is sleeping he stays in his room
and waits for him to wake up
and goes and gets Wendy. I’m
so lucky to have him.
From Genesis E.
I am thankful for school be-
cause without school we would
never learn things like math,
science and reading but you also
would not learn to be sociable. I
am also thankful for my friends
and family because without
my friends and family I would
be able to accomplish nothing.
For example without my mom
and dad I would not be able to
travel as much as I do without
my friends I would not laugh as
much as I do because they are
funny. I am especially thankful
for my friend Ethan because
he is my best friend and I have
known him for a long time. I
am thankful for food and water
and the fact that I am alive, I am
thankful for these things for ob-
vious reasons are of course that
I need these things to live espe-
cially the last one.
Finn V.
I am thankful for books. I like
to read books. I read in school.
I am reading the Harry Potter
seresi, I love to read. I could
reading the daytime for a long
time. Reading is fun. Reading
helps me learn I can be smarter.
I read every day.
From Keith H.
I am thankful for friends
because if I had no friends I
wouldn’t have anyone to care
for me but family. I would also
have no one to play with or do
anything. I am thankful for a
roof over my head, nice things
like clothes and a phone like the
i-phone 5S and video games. I
am thankful for food and clean
water. I have good food like ev-
ery night. I have a mom and dad
to look for me. I am thankful
for enough money to do sports
like football because so many
kids don’t have the money. I am
thankful for school because a lot
of kids don’t have a education. I
am most thankful for my good
parents. Some kids parents are
