1: Stephenson Christian Academy | This year we had all our work on computer, including Spanish! We also got to participate in the "Book It" program, where you earn pizza for reading books. The program started in October and ended in March. We all had our own computers this year. We got to use mechanical pencils, notebooks and homwork planners. Our planners told us what to do for that day. We went on many cool field trips and learned many new skills that made this year a fun year to remember. ---Zane Stephenson

6: Book It For an extra fun Reading activity we were given pizza certificates for a personal size pizza, but we only got the pizza if we read 600 pages that month. While at Pizza Hut in December for one of our book it parties, Miran got pizza sauce dumped all over her because the waitress was flirting with Uncle Charlie. We had so much fun. - Zane
7: We learned math in many different ways this year. We learned fractions by using Hershey candy bars and pizzas. We learned weights and measures by measuring kool-aid, dirty shoes, and teddy grahams. Math is so much more fun when you can do fun activities instead of only boring old book work. -Bekah | Fun in Math Class Hershey Fractions

It was a beautiful moment. We bought a cool lobster magnet and jewelry boxes made out of sea shells in the gift shop. We then went to play miniature golf in the dark. Mom didn't play..she had a broken finger. The golf course was really cool with smoking skulls and a peter pan theme. Miran found a ghost hermit crab on the beach. she tried to keep it ..but it died and stank up the car. - Bethanne | Myrtle Beach
