By Pamela N. Alvarez Sosa, Junipero Serra

Happyness is when you have a lot of joy.

It's when your mom comes back from Mexico.

It's when you go somewhere for the first time.

Peace and Positivity

By Marco Gongora, Paul Revere Elementary School

Peace should spread around the world

like jam on toast...

Radio Poets 2018: Melany Perez, "Stars"

Apr 3, 2018


By Melany Perez, E.R. Taylor Elementary School

The stars look beautiful all night

I always get ready to see them

shine at dawn, shine so bright at night.


Rock Climber 

By Johnny Rodrguez, Marshall Elementary School   


  I used to rely on the hardness and the safety it gave me until, it disappeared.    

Now, I rely on my fingers who keep me safe and stable.

One slip and I fall to my doom.
