Ode to someone you admire

Write an ode to a person you admire or respect


George Russell      

Grade 3

Ode to Mom

Oh Mom,

You are beautiful

You are nice

You let me watch TV in the living room

You drop me off to my Grandma’s

Without you, I would be sad

Without you, I wouldn’t have a family

Mom, you are like a star.

Kayleigh Bushweller

Grade 6


You are there every day

For me

For my sister

My mother

My father

You love us to the moon and back

and more.

How can we ever repay you?

You make life worth living for

You give us life

You give us joy

and happiness.

You are the heart of love

The soul of life.

Cale Layman

Grade 6


Sam is a goalie that I know

He’s helpful and funny and he is not slow

In the net he is aggressive and quick

He does not let the puck past his stick


I’ve come to know him over the years

He helps eliminate my goalie fears

I watch and emulate what he does

And tweak the move, just because


He’s cool and calm no matter what

Even if his team is in a rut

When I hit a rough spot; thinking of Sam helps a lot

I try to be like him but with a Cale-spin; turning things around into a win

Ode to my beloved Max. You cuddle , you snuggle, your a big hunk of love. What would I do without. You are like the beautiful silky clouds in the sky. Oh , What would I do without. Ode to max, my beloved max. You are

    I am writing in response to Mr. Hoxworth’s article on transportation costs for the poor in Vermont. I would like to suggest further research on this topic before we simply just give another handout or tax credit. The poor, may, have a higher disproportionate burden on their transportation costs than the wealthier residents of Vermont; however, they also have a lower disproportionate burden on taxes and housing. Pick your evil.
    We can simply just give every poor Vermonter an energy efficient car, gas card, free tuition, renter’s rebate, etc.…but the only way out of poverty is through the combination of education, hard work, and discipline. Education and degrees are not handed out or purchased; a person has to EARN them. This seems to be the only way out of poverty—sorry, there are no shortcuts.
    If we continue this trend of enabling, our entire state will be a welfare state.
