Each November, we do a school competition called the Can Drive. It supports the elderly and those in need within our community by giving canned foods. The team that wins (by getting the most cans in) gets a team pizza on Friday. The teams are Wahoos, Marlins, Barracuda, and Grouper. Though it is a competition, we still strive to help as many people as we can. If you have a kid going to Hope Town School I encourage you to help your team and the people in our community by giving you child a few cans or dried goods like pasta or rice.*
*Please only give cans without dents or rust. Thank you! By: Jack
UPDATE: The Groupers won again!! Thank you Miss Stephanie for these great photos.
Fifteen years ago, there was a young girl named Anna. She was 6 years old and lived on 666 Avenue with her Grandmother Lucy. Lucy always wore a black dress with a skull on the back of it to show her love for dark arts. The skull was normally hidden by her long brown hair.
One day Anna went out to get some books from the library, and when she came back her Grandmother, was not breathing! Anna started sobbing and ran into the kitchen to grab the phone and call 911 when she heard a banging coming from her room. There was a big hole in the floor. Creak! The door closed behind her. The Devil had possessed her teddy bear. The old dirty teddy bear lept out at her and grabbed her by the neck.
She grasped the teddy bear with both hands and ripped it off of her. She bolted out of the house and started sprinting. Anna ran ’til her legs gave out and collapsed right there on the sidewalk. In the morning she awoke in a strange place. There standing right in front of her was a tall long haired girl in a bloody white dress with an ax in her hand.
Anna struggled to get up but soon as she was standing, everything went black. She woke up to a bloody ax lying on the floor and herself hovering above the ground. She too was now dead.
Today our principal, Mr. Higgs, picked prefects. We thank the Hope Town Lodge for hosting the refreshments and food. The whole six grade was picked for this wonderful event. Prefects have many jobs like watching the younger kids at lunch, raising the Bahamian flag, and many other duties. We may only have a small class of five students but everyone is well behaved and I think everyone deserved what they where chosen for. I can’t wait to see who will be picked next year. By: Jack
