I really love to play sports

Mr. Wiggins referred to it as “a winter white precipitation.” He didn’t want to jinx it, so he referred to it as a winter white precipitation.

What do you think about the snow that’s coming our way?

I like snow. All my family doesn’t like it, but I love snow. I like to just run around in it. My family doesn’t really like the snow because it’s cold and gets all over stuff.

I would like a couple inches of snow but not 53 inches of snow! Maybe four or five inches.

What else do you like to do when it’s not snowing?

Outside of school, I just really love to play sports and hang out with my family. I love to play sports. Every season, I can’t go without playing one sport. It’s just like, it’s a habit and a hobby. Like, I need to do it or else I won’t survive. I love to be active.

My favorite sport? Umm, it would be between baseball and football. Oh, I forgot one – basketball! I’m playing basketball right now for Creeds.

I do have a favorite baseball team. I like the Washington Nationals. I know Mrs. Conger is not a fan. She likes the Cardinals. We’re in the same division, so we have rivals. I do go up to Washington, D.C. two times a year to watch four games. I see two games each visit. And it’s hot up there – WAY hotter than here.

Are the Nats going to win it all this year?

It’s the D.C. curse! Every D.C. team goes to the playoffs and loses in the second round. The Washington Nationals haven’t won a ring since, I’m pretty sure it’s like 1976, when they were the Washington Senators. It was a LONG time ago.

I also like music because I do like to sing, and I like just music in general. I’ve always liked music. In the car, I jam out to the radio.

I’m in chorus. A lot of people auditioned for chorus and a bunch of students made chorus. Mrs. Alexander made a conclusion on who was going to be the assistant director. It means, like, if she isn’t there and she needed them to do something, they’d do it. And I got assistant director. When it happened, I was about to clap because I thought somebody else was going to get it. And then she said my name, and I was like, “Whoa!”

It sounds like you were surprised. Why do think she picked you?

I WAS surprised. I mean, I don’t know. I’ve been thinking about why she picked me and I feel like it was from leadership. I mean…I don’t…it was just surprising.

I have had to be in that role once so far. Mrs. Alexander had to go with fourth-graders to the senior center to sing. It was only for like 10 minutes but I still had to teach and do the warm ups. I definitely felt like a leader. It was definitely breathtaking on how I could do that.
