Page, 8 School Report November 18, 1982 tro n g Na tio This year's theme for Ameri- can Education Week is: "A Strong Nation Needs Strong Schools". The statement has a different meaning for everyone, as noted by the following essays by Cheney students, parents and staff. Emily McLuen Windsor What does it feel like when you are a grown up? How does it feel to be in the primary grades? The kids in our nation today need to be good learners. People in the United States need good schools. For kids in the United States to have good schools, I need to learn. Every one in school needs to learn. I think a strong nation needs strong schools. I get to know about our country. I have a teacher that teaches me math problems. She teaches me Eng- lish. She even teaches me how to write in cursive. Our nation is one that helps kids learn. There is not one person in the United States that should not be able to go to a good school. The kids that go tc school need to learn how to be good leaders. You need to listen to your teacher. If you don't listen, you won't know how to become a valuable leader. I hope the people that go to school listen. I like school, not because it's fun, but because it helps me learn. That's what is really fun. If you like school, too, you can be a good leader. But don't forget to listen and act, now and in the future. This will make for a strong nation. By Laurie Gepford Windsor A Strong Nation needs Strong Schools. If we have strong schools, in the long-run we may be ahead of every nation in the world. What it all comes down to is that with strong schools our technology will build, and there will no longer be any competi- tion with Russia. Look at all the kids going to college right here in Spokane. With our strong schools and colleges.we will have more law- yers, doctors, nurses, cashiers, etc. Our nation is trying for the best, and we'll make it. By Cory Jenkins Windsor A Strong Nation Needs Strong Schools. What this means to me is to have strong schools and you need good teachers, a good principal, and students that have confi- dence in themselves. A student also has to be willing to learn the school subjects like math, spell- ing, reading, English and writ- ing. That's what makes a strong School. If we didn't have strong schools, we wouldn't have a strong nation. Because without a good schooling we would not have as much knowledge to build missiles, airplanes, tanks, and ships to stay ahead of the Soviet Union in the arms race. Also, we wouldn't have transportation from one place to another. ,m : - By Jamie Foland Windsor A strong Nation needs strong schools. Our Nation needs strong schools because children have to learn things and learn to be a person who works very hard. Then we would know what to be when we grow up. When we get to college, we can prepare to be that person. I think our Government wants kids to have a great education. In school, we are learning about the President and other people who help him. I think we have a good Nation that we can be proud about. Do you? Our Government is doing the best they can. We learn we're not the greatest in the world. We learn to respect others. We learn good habits too. And if we have strong schools we will be very good at thinking. You need good schools because you can be good at all kinds of things. I think that our Government went to grade school too. And they learned to think and listen. Some people in our grade will run for Govern- ment or County Commissioner or Vice-Pres, or Pres. when we grow up. Mike Bowden Windsor Yes, a strong nation needs strong schools. We need good principals and good teachers. Good teachers mean good edu- cation. Kids need a good educa- tion, because they will become important leaders in a few years. Who knows? You might hear on T.V. "Vote for Ross Wells". "Vote Tim Porter". (Both former 3rd graders.) These 3rd graders , could run for local, state and natioP.l offices. We learn to he good thinkers and listeners. That's important if you are running for office. Sure, you hear ads on T.V. saying "Vote Tom Foley", "Vote Jim Brown". But that's now! We're talking about the future years here. Schools that teach kids will help future kids to run and be elected for mayor, Governor, Congress, Vice-pres. and pres. What do you think about it? t Ill By Nathan Godwin Windsor Why does a strong nation need strong schools? So people in our schools will have a better future. One day someone will become president of the U.S. Maybe you may become president or vice- president. Strong schools will make every state strong. If we don't have strong schools, we won't have strong nations. If we have strong schools, we will have better presidents and leaders. If we don't nave strong schools, we won't have one smart person in the whole United States. A presi- dent is not a fool. He is a person that is smart and knows what he is doing. We are going to be that kind of person. H -- By Tim Porter Windsor A strong Nation needs strong schools. To me, it means that a nation needs smart people. We need more clever people for: school teachers, governors, presidents, senators, official officers, state governors, county commission- ers, and safety people. We need to get brilliant people to go out and study the things in: other countries, states, and nature, and maybe even undersea. But there's other things too, thats not talking about this. Everyone is smart a little. And a lot of people are real clever! A little studying will make you smart. I got a little smart by working on: spelling, English, reading, listening, and writing. I II By Sharon Holmes Sunset I love my country! We need good schools because we need to learn. We can learn how govern- ment works. We elect repre- sentatives to make decisions. Thisis what our Student Council does. By Shauna Faye Uhtoff Sunset Why do we need good schools? So we can be good citizens. And so we can get good jobs when we grow up. . ill By Harold Krouse Sunset Our country needs good schools. At school we learn about good citizenship. By Marion Relph Garden Springs A strong nation needs a strong school. If it was not for school the United States of America would not have good strong leaders or good lawyers or anything. So, I believe we should have strong schools. I really do. I _ By Jennifer Lynn Vigil Garden Springs A strong nation needs a strong school. The reason a strong nation needs a strong school is so that children may grown up to be sensitive and to be smart. Over sixty five years ago Ronald Reagon was a young child, he probably went to a school to be smart. Lots of children like to think of growing up to be a teacher - to work in a strong nation real have a strong school. children are going to schools in the U.S. so grow up to smart adults. your children to a school and you and : will be happy. By Eric Shears Betz Elementai'y A Strong Nation Strong Schools. any schools we would one of the poor probably wouldn't birthdays or Christmas we would't have the presents. We wouldn't in any houses.
