Conch

There are many animals out there in the sea but why take so many. Well, we won’t have any more to seafood eat and the environment would be ruined.  As Bahamian’s, we eat conch.  Do you know how many conch are exported out of The Bahamas each year? 600,000+ pounds. So please protect waters and all sea life, by not over fishing, also watch  out for poachers, and never take a conch that  is a juvenile with less than a 15mm  lip thickness.  Lastly, I’d like you to congratulate grades 5 and 6 for coming in 1st place at the annual Science Fair.   Each year Hope Town either comes first or second in the Science Fair, held at New Visions in Marsh Harbour.

New Roads

Recently the roads in Hope Town have been fixed The Jib to the Historical Museum.  The roads were full of cracks and now they’re completely flat.  People worked on the streets for days and days.  It cost $7,000 for the repairs and was paid for by donations of businesses and community members.  Also thanks to Abaco Construction for donating the equipment needed.  Now everyone is excited for the new roads.

Thanksgiving

This is a time for love and a time for sharing.   We often take the little things for granted in life like the water we drink and the food we eat.  On thanksgiving we think how lucky we are even if we do not have much we should be grateful  to be alive.  Although you may not celebrate thanksgiving we should all still be thankful.  I am grateful for my family and friends.  On thanksgiving  my family has a big family dinner and we all go around the table saying what we are thankful for.  Thanksgiving is a wonderful way to say thank you and give thanks.

Turtle Trot

Every year on the third Thursday of November, we have a fun competition called the Turtle Trot. This is when athletes young and old compete to see who will the race. There is a three mile race for adults and some kids and a school race for children. Our Trot is only one mile but it is still a great workout. It is much like the American Turkey Trot which is mostly the same. Though it is a competition we still strive to do our personal best and have a great time.                                                                               I challenge you to push yourself to the limits and race this Thursday!Image result for Hope Town Turtle Trot

Box Cart Derby

On the 25th of November our annual Box Cart Derby will be held at Big Hill on Elbow Cay.  Many people make their own box carts and decorate them however they want to.  The Box Cart Derby is when members of the community go to Big Hill and bring box carts to race.  Our school will be participating in the race with our own box car.   We are not sure yet who will be racing it but it will be a 6th grader.  The rest of our sixth grade class will run the food stands and sell snow cones, popcorn, and other delicious snacks. We will be raising money for our 6th grade Eleuthera trip.  There will be raffles, t-shirts, and many other exciting events!  Anyone can participate if they have a box cart.  We hope to see you there.

This Saturday coming up!!!!!!

This Saturday we’re having a game BullSharks vs Wildhawgs and Falcons. The game is taking place in Marsh Harbour. I feel exited to play another game against the Wildhawgs but scared to face the Falcons because they trashed us and made us lose hope in the last face-off.   But now I’m ready and as tough as a lion! And ready as a bird! Still we always need practice -that makes perfect.Image result for NEW Hope Town Bull Sharks

Bullying Speech

It’s not fair if you hit someone.  By hitting someone you can cause them to feel hurt.  Your words also can hurt  anyone who’s near because that’s what bullying is about.  The pain can make you  feel horrible.  The bully might be having trouble at home and bringing strong emotions to school.  So PLEASE DON’T BULLY ANYONE -that way, we all can be one.                                                                                                                                               Related image                                                                                                                       By:Monica
