Wanting Meatloaf by by Montez P, Jayzoun N, James M, Emmanuel L, Kristyle Y, Reyna J, and Fayome M, Dixon Elementary School
Once there was a boy named Jackson who craved meatloaf with nothing else. He hangs out in a mansion that has a pool table, a pool, bunk beds, and a club with a bar. He lays in bed cause he is so sad about the meatloaf. He wishes for meatloaf. He wishes so much he falls asleep. He wakes up it appears by itself. He eats some and he loves it. All he does is eat meatloaf all day. His therapist named Bob tells him to stop eating it, he doesn’t listen and wakes up with a meatloaf head! He sings the meatloaf song* and the meatloaf head disappears. The End

Not so Much Pressure by Lazaireus P., Morton Elementary (Nick composed)
I am Batman and I believe that I shouldn’t save the world every day. One reason why I think I shouldn’t have to save the world every day is because I is saving the world every day and he has a life and it should not just be about saving people because he could probably die just like other humans could. One more reason is because while he is outside trying to save the world who will save his family from danger because it’s not like he could teleport. The end
