we Rule the School :)

We are Mrs. Pope’s 5th grade class at St. Helena Elementary School. This means that we are the “seniors” of the whole school. (we should explain – our school goes from pre-kindergarten to fifth grade)

We would like to give advice to our younger Panthers (that’s our mascot):

Jayden (10) says “Always get your work done.”

Michael (10) says “Set a goal through all the grades until you get to fifth grade.”

Terell (11) says “My advice is you should always stay in school and get your work done.”

Robert (11) says “Never give up.”

Jewell (10) says “Keep your grades up to get in a good college.”

Daishia (10) says “Stay in school and work hard to get better grades.”

Darwin (11) says “Education is valuable.”

Tyshon (10) says “Listen to your teachers.”

Jaylen (10) says “Learn. Study. Work. For today and tomorrow.”

Jeromiah (10) has this advice: “Do your homework.”

Baliek (11 – almost) has this advice: “Respect your elders and your parents.”

Tra’vion (11) wraps it up with this: “Don’t play around in class or you’ll get in trouble.”

So, because the teacher always has the last word… (and because we save the best for last) Mrs. Pope has this to say:

“A mind is a terrible thing to waste and your life begins with your education.”

(p.s. If you could be here right now you’d be hearing cheers)
