Everybody has got feelings. Everybody should be included. Here are the best reasons of how to include people. You should listen because they are the best. Here are the reasons.

One reason is it is fun. If you are playing a game let another person play. If you do the game will get bigger and more fun. It is important to make friends because you make new friends. If you be a friend you will get more friends. It will make them happy and you will be happy. Be a nice friend it helps your friendship.

The most important reason is that everybody’s got feelings. One time didn’t get included, i felt like i didn’t exist to people. I felt like I didn’t get included. I felt like I din’t exist to people. I felt like nobody was my friend.

So listen up, everybody should be included.

Our Interview of Mr. Chambers Sr: A local Civil Rights Leader

Today we met Marvin Chambers. He was a local Civil Rights leader, working to change segregation in our town.  He is also the grandfather of one of our classmates. We learned that he helped start ASCORE, which stands for Avl Student Congress of Racial Equality.  ASCORE changed the segregation of our town.

Students remembered  these comments from his visit:

We learned that black schools always got hand-me-down books.

We learned that they couldn’t go out on the street by themselves, if they were a black.

5% of the people made the other 95% suffer.

Grandparent’s Day

We studied courageous leaders of the Civil Rights Movement. Students prepared reader’s theater performanced based MLK Jr and Shirley Chisholm. They did a great job, don’t you think?
