A Mariners thank you

Below are the writings by my third-grade students at Mariners Elementary School in Newport Beach


Pat Mclaughlin

I am thankful for what we have in our country. We have good people. We should all respect our mayor, our president, and our senators. Everybody should be thankful for God because he created this world. I think everybody should be nice to each other because then everybody would be thankful. I also think that it would be nice if everybody could help each other, so whatever you're doing, it would go faster and that would make everybody thankful.

Avery Rowe

I am thankful for many things. I am thankful for veterans because they all fought for our delighted state. I am most thankful for everything like my family. I'm thankful for my dad because if I'm in trouble my dad is always behind my back. I'm thankful for school because it helps me read and learn, but not only that, you can play and do some math games that are fun.

I am thankful for my dog. My dog is white. Her name is Polly. I am thankful for her because she gives me something to do when I get home. These are some of the things she does with me: She plays on the trampoline, and she swims too. I love my dog.
