Here is an amazing section from David’s webpage. It is about a really great idea that one of his teachers used in her class for the first day of school. If you like it, maybe you’ll want to tell your own teacher about it!

Here’s what David says about it:


“Here is a very good idea for a way to start the new school year:

When I came to meet my teacher for second grade this year, she gave each student a little bag. Inside the bag was a cotton ball, a chocolate kiss, a sticker, a rubber band, a penny, a star, a tissue, a toothpick, a band-aid, a piece of gold thread, an eraser and a Life Saver candy. Inside the bag was this note:


Dear David,
Welcome to your new classroom. The items in this bag have special meanings.
–The cotton ball is to remind you that this room is full of kind words and warm feelings.
–The chocolate kiss is to comfort you when you are feeling sad.
–The sticker is to remind you that we all stick together and help each other.
–The rubber band is to remind you to hug someone.
–The penny is to remind you that you are valuable and special.
–The star is to remind you to shine and always try your best.
–The tissue is to remind you to help dry someone’s tears.
–The toothpick is to remind you to “pick out” the good qualities in your classmates and yourself.
–The gold thread is to remind you that friendship ties our hearts together.
–The eraser is to remind you that everyone makes mistakes and that it is okay.
–The Life Saver is to remind you that you can come to me if you need someone to talk to.

With love, Mrs. Kennedy.”

Emily’s Ark

Emily’s Ark – Amazing Emily has many talents and interests. In addition to a gift for art, she loves animals, and has created this educational website to teach other kids about animals. Here’s what she says about it:

“Hi! I’m Emily! I love animals and teaching others about animals. I enjoy drawing, riding horses, playing piano, bird watching, and wood carving. I collect rocks (especially fossils), sea shells, moss, bird nests, and horses. Collecting moss sounds strange, but it’s very interesting! You’d be surprised how many different kind there are!

Visit my site, and other pet sites, before you get an animal. That way you can be prepared for what that animal requires to be healthy and happy. If you want to know more about any kind of animal, E-mail me! I can post information about other kinds of pets, if you ask…”

“Hi. My name is Anthony ‘Tony’ Montesanto. I am eleven years old and live in San Diego, CA. I have a disease called Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy. Right now, there is no cure for this disease. I would like to share with other kids and parents a little about myself and how my life with Muscular Dystrophy has affected me and other kids.

I am the 1997/1998 Goodwill Ambassador for the Muscular Dystrophy Association for San Diego and Imperial Counties and get to do a lot of neat things, like get to be on the local telethon. This is the time when volunteers from around the world help to raise money to help find a cure for people like myself. The folks at San Diego’s KUSI TV 9/51 helped MDA all year long and were at the telethon. They worked so hard, thanks guys! I got to wear a tuxedo with cartoons of the Tazmanian Devil, my favorite cartoon character. Maybe that’s what I think I am sometimes. We had a great time and I even got a kiss from Laura Buxton, a newscaster from KUSI!”
