Student, LE II
Colton has “figured out some things,” he tells us. For example, compared to the sun, “We on earth are just a speck.” We should also “always be nice to nature, especially frogs…they breathe with their skin…they can die from the sun…we should give them a rock tent and sometimes feed them a fly.” And, “Don’t tackle people. Include someone even if you don’t know them.” Colton adds, “Ms. Newsome says that everyone should have a partner.” All good insights, we think, for someone who is seven.
Colton was three when his parents enrolled him at MSR. He doesn’t remember why they chose this school but he remembers meeting Walter, “my friend,” and their friendship continues even now in LE. They have played “fun games” through the years, and at the moment that includes “cops and robbers.” They are the latter, and at recess the “bank” they like to rob is on Ben’s Field.
