Long Elementary students offer their resolutions for coming year

Long Elementary School fourth-grade students in Lindbergh Schools offer these New Year’s resolutions for 2018:
Willa — My New Year’s resolution for 2018 is that I would like to read at least one classic book. I would like to do this because it would help my vocabulary, and be fun. I think I would read the full version of “Little Women.” I have read the shortened version, but I think it would be fun to read the full version. That is my New Year’s resolution.
Jacob — For My New Year’s resolution I want to spend more time with my family. To do that I will try to have a family board game night or a family movie night.
Hannah — For my New Year’s resolution I would try to do four-digit multiplication every morning for the whole third quarter or just maybe I will do four-digit multiplication all year in the morning. I think four-digit multiplication is easy for me and I hope it will get easier.
Mohammad — Many people around the world have set a resolution or two for the upcoming year, and I am one of those people. I have set two resolutions, one personal and one academic. My personal resolution is to become better at soccer. My academic resolution is to become better at math. I am proud that I have set two resolutions for 2018, because in the past I have only set one.
Gabriella — Have you set a New Year’s resolution this year or ever in your life? Well, I have. This year I have set two goals, one academic and one personal. My academic goal is to get better at math, specifically long division. My personal resolution is to get better at gymnastics. I know it will take a while, like most resolutions do, but I am confident I can reach these goals by the end of next year.
Long Elementary School fifth-grade students offer these New Year’s resolutions for 2018:

Ben — My New Year’s resolution is to get better at reading because I don’t like reading and I want to like reading. I will start reading more at home on my tablet or a paper book.
Natalie — My New Year’s resolution is to get a better attitude so I don’t get punished anymore. I will stay calm and ignore my sister when she is being annoying and try to say why I don’t like this.
Rosemarie — My New Year’s resolution is to get better at schoolwork, to get better grades and to accomplish my goal. I will work hard and study.
Lucas — My New Year’s resolution is to buy a 40-gallon tank for my hamster because I want to upgrade her cage and hamsters can run up to seven miles a night. I will save up and sell stuff to do this.
Cristina — My New Year’s resolution is to get straight A’s so I can have good grades for middle school. I can accomplish my resolution by studying for each test.
Kelsey — My New Year’s resolution is to hang out with my dog more. I want to do this because I barely hang out with her because I’m scared that she will bite me. I will do this by hanging out with her 5 minutes before school and 10 minutes after school and 10 minutes on Saturday and Sunday.
Thatcher — My New Year’s resolution is to be better at baseball and football because I would like to try out for a team and I need to be really good. I will practice three nights a week to do this.

Kennedy — My New Year’s resolution is I’m aiming to read more and better because reading is my favorite subject. I will do this by reading my “Captain Underpants” book.
PJ — My New Year’s resolution is spelling and typing fast. It will be useful.
Stella — My New Year’s resolution is I want to save enough money to buy a laptop. It would be easier than borrowing my parents’ computers and I can do more things on it if it belongs to me. Instead of spending my money on little things that don’t matter, I will keep the money in a box so that I won’t be tempted to use it.
Frankie — My New Year’s resolution is to get better at hockey so I can play with my friend. I will take a beginner’s class somewhere to do this.

Maria — My New Year’s resolution is in the morning before school to run around the block and do a second lap with my dog every day. I want to stay fit and help my puppy stay fit. I will go to sleep early so when I wake up early I will not be tired.
Jack — My New Year’s resolution is I want to get better in social studies so I can still play the sports that I like so I can get a scholarship when I go to college. I will do this by doing good in school and keeping my grades up.
Coen — My New Year’s resolution is to learn to juggle three balls. I want to because when I have nothing to do I can work on juggling three balls. I will accomplish this by juggling every day and bringing the three juggling balls everywhere.
Jeanny — My New Year’s Resolution is to get another bull’s-eye in archery. I want to do this so I can prove that I’m a good archer and so I can get on a team. I will practice almost every single day for 30 minutes or 20 minutes.
