Covid-19 & Racism
Right when we started working together,
Covid-19 ruined 2020 forever,
We went in lockdown and had to wear masks,
But despite the virus we still did our tasks,
All the meetings together became virtual,
And the work became digital,
For then everything was going well until we started to fight,
It was amongst ourselves and then for what is right,
We slowly started to come back as one,
And we are again reminded of the great things America has done,
We continue to strive for justice and innovation,
We will go through this together as one big nation.

My Dear Elementary
I will miss this school.
This school was very cool.
I love this school because Findley Dragons help everyone out.
I also love running club. The second I ran in the sun I dove into it and ran a marathon and had lots of fun!
The awesome teachers are very kind when they remind us to stay positive.
Dragons love green and purple that represent our school by saying that green shows the pride and kindness of our school. Purple shows that no one can surpass a Findley dragon from their goals!!
I will miss this school very much and it will touch my heart all the time.

What Does a Turkey Think About?
Well, for starters, I have a tagged turkey right here for you. The helmet tracks its thinking. Let’s look at what it is thinking.
Why are these people looking at me?! Am I really plump? Is it November already?! I don’t wanna die! Where’s mommy when you need her? I don’t want to be butchered! I don’t wanna die! Or wait, maybe they're not going to kill me? Tell me, human, do my clothes not really match my style? Is pink not my color? Answer me fool! Don’t you know what pain I can inflict on you?! Why are you narrowing your eyes? Is he going to touch me? I am not the one to die this year! Adios amigos!
Uh… will somebody please get the turkey? It’s running away!
Don’t even think about catching me, I refuse to be stuffed, or be put in a turkey sandwich, or be eaten with cranberry sauce! Choose a different bird to eat! If I were you I would eat cousin goose! Such a lazy fat bird that only cares about looks! Now, tell me now! Are these feathers my style??
The Adventures of Mask Man by Thilan
But if you wear a mask you won't!
Some kids are at a playground.
Then one kid has an idea.
"These are so uncomfortable. Let's take them off."
"Oh, good idea!"
So all the kids take off their masks.
So, Mask Man comes and says, "Put your masks on it protects you from Corona!"
So all the kids put their masks on. With the help of masks we can beat Corona!
