A Shocking Halloween

Ha-ha, what an exciting Halloween. I hope you have an exciting Halloween like me. This is how it started. This year I was on my way to the aquarium in my shark costume because they were having a party. So I walk in and I turned into a shark! I felt so disgusting! So people started to look at me and I was like “Haven’t you seen a Great White before?”

When I was on my way to go get a drink I needed water, I totally forgot fish need water. I was very confused. I tried to poor my drink on me, but it was just Fruit Punch. I didn’t know where to go. So I decided to jump in the tank of fish. It was empty, huh. So I swam around and I figured out why it was empty. All of a sudden a GIGANTIC Great White (Bigger than me) appeared out behind a coral! I started to fight back because he got in his stance position. Luckily my teacher Mr. Johnson had my class and I watch a shark movie. The other shark didn’t want to attack me for some reason. It was a little disturbing.

It was actually a she. She chased me around and around for about an hour. So everybody started to wonder where I was and started to look for a dude in a shark suit. Then they remembered that I had already came and I turned into a shark. So they all started to pile around the fish tank and take pictures. But I was like really people “I’m in a crisis here!” They threw a fish in to distract her but the fish failed and started to swim around too. So they threw in multiple fish and it worked! It was too crowded for her to keep up with me.

I got out and I was as happy as me eating SKITTLES! So they took me back outside and they put a BIG tank of water on me. So I started to dance right when one of my favorite songs came on. I was like Girl look at that shark! Ahhh! So I saw another shark. For your info it was a human dressed in a shark costume like me. I was like girl “I’ll take you to my famous fish restaurant.” But sadly she rejected me. What a FISHY day, I thought. Mwaha, have a happy Halloween.


I love it! What an imagination. 🙂

Yes, he does love skittles.

Popping Questions

By Adric Ray (my 5th grade son)

Ahh! What a disgusting drink. Aw the taste of water… Have you guys ever liked water so much. Well the real question is do you think Spring Valley should sell pop at our school, I don’t think so at least. I don’t think so because if you do the teachers will have to tell the kids to be quiet more because they’re more hyper. ( I already talk a lot! Lol) Also if you let kids buy pop they’re gonna go home and their parents are gonna complain sense they just drank 3-6 pops which is surprising. It also isn’t that healthy for you, your parents are going to have to take you to the dentist and it’s gonna add up and cost a lot after a while. Plus soon or later you would have lost all of your teeth.

The teachers already get mad if you talk a lot. You’d lose your recess of course… If you talk too much what would be the point of buying it anyways. Plus if you hyper in the mornings you shouldn’t even get it cause you already have all your energy. You shouldn’t buy this for multiple reasons. It’ll give some of your teachers stress.

Also your teacher’s class would have children buying 3-6 pops a week or even a day! You would be getting a lot of complaint mail and you would have problems. The kid’s parents would be sending you their child’s dentist’s bills. You would be like I don’t have the money! There are just that many kids that would drink that much.

That’s my reason why you shouldn’t buy pops for school. True it would give kids the energy but they would be bouncing around like BOING BOING. I would like a pop every once and a while. But if you did limit or something. Plus some of your students would get annoyed by other crazy kids and they would disobey some of the rules.


I am happy to see he knows pop is bad for you. 🙂 He sees me drink one almost everyday. I definitely don’t allow them to have pop all the time. I encourage water and they do see me drink more water than pop. I am glad he understands.

I am finding his essays to be entertaining this year. I like seeing his thoughts. I think the Common Core is not all bad. It is just a change. If it encourages more writing, well heck, I am all for it. 🙂
