Princess Vs Berries and Nachos

By Mya S, Ny'tevia H, Nya B, Alisha H, Kendra B, Jamie H, Tyrese H, Tyler B., Chalmers School of Excellence

Once Victoria the princess was wearing a pink dress. She is nice but when you mess with her she can be your worst nightmare! She was going to a castle to get berries for a pie. Her father the king sent her a basket to get the berries. But the berries were near the Nacho Monster’s Forest. While she was collecting berries the Nacho Monster saw her through his peep hole. He jumped out and scared her. She tried to run but unfortunately he stepped on her hair and she fell. She had really long hair because she loved Rapunzel and was trying to be like her. The Nacho monster was mad and sad because Victoria took his friend’s berries. Nacho Monster dragged Victoria by her hair to the Berry Monster’s door. The Berry Monster said “Who goes there?” “It’s me Nacho.” The Berry Monster was mad and screamed “Why’d you take my berries there are plenty of cherries in the Fairy Tree.” Victoria said ” I’m sorry I didn’t mean to take your berries. I was going to make berry pie for the ball, but we can share.” They decided to share and became friends. But a knight came to rescue her and the Berry and Nacho Monsters boiled him and chopped him up with pork chops. They ate him for dinner and the princess did too! The End

No More Violence

By Jason, Tony, Rhiannon, Nina, Shengteng, Angela, Tina , Haines

I believe that there should be no violence in the world. Too many are being murdered in the world and people feel sad and devastated. About 4million people die every day in the world and we spend so much money trying to fix them instead we could be spending that money on curing diseases. People are scared and can’t live happy lives. In conclusion, if there were no violence, people would be happier. THE END.

RTA

By Ricardo, 5th Grade, Dewey Elementary

I still deserto donuts, cookies and sardeans hair styles and oysters.  I like to steal deserts.  I don’t like it when people eat sweet foods.  It doesn’t diserve to be chewed that way.  OK when someone keeps your game and tells you to destroy his friends and you will get them back.  I live in a sewer filled with sweetness and a monkey as my buttler.  I don’t have a job I’m poor and broke.

Once upon a time, there was a doctor named Dr. Stupid-Head.  And Dr. Stupid-Head was checking out a patient.  Her name was Kassi.  Kassi hurt her brain.
