The Ice Days

On the 6th and the 9th of December 2013, the students of the Lewisville Independent School District did not attend school due to the roads being frozen. The District decided that those days would be made up on the 23rd of May and the 6th of June. However, I think that we should have those days off like they were going to be before the ice. Instead of make up days, I think it would be better to squeeze those missed lessons onto other days. If the Super Intendent does not approve of that idea because we still missed two days of school, I think we should still do the work on other days and start school two days early. If we do it this way, we would be able to have a four-day weekend in May and end school one day early.

History Time

George Washington, John Hancock, Paul Revere, Ben Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson all have something in common. They were patriots in the Revolutionary War. All of these people played a key role in the Revolutionary War, gaining our freedom from England. George Washington was the leader of the Continental Army. He was later made into the first president of the United States of America. John Hancock was the President of the First and Second Constitutional Convention. He was also the first to sign the Declaration of Independence. Paul Revere was a leader of the Sons of Liberty. Paul also had his famous ride on the eighteenth of April in 1975. Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. So, without these outstanding figures, we wouldn't be where we are today. We would not have been able to have all these freedoms we have these days.

Lights! Cameras! Action!

A classic perfect for anytime of the year. A movie with the ability to give all ages a good laugh. It's a story of three orphaned boys who always find themselves in trouble but find a way to get out of them. These three boys are quirky and bizarre, while at the same time able to give off a heartwarming atmosphere, great for a family movie night. The Three Stooges is the movie to watch if you haven't before.

The Best Book of 2013

Allegiant is the "IT" book of the year. Allegiant is as amazing as Divergent and Insurgent, the prior books in the trilogy. The author tells the story in great detail that everything seems to come alive. Allegiant is the BOMB.
