Fresh prints Parley’s Park kids
The following are letters from kids at Parley’s Park Elementary School, describing their "Gift to the World" for the holidays. My Gift to the World Jesse Guyer My gift to the world would be smiles, giggles and laughs. I would give out these three things to people who are sad and crying. It would make them feel better in their hearts. The world would be a happier place to live. My Gift to the World By Daniel Schoon I would like to see less trash on the ground. When people litter it makes me sad. When people litter it makes our world a dirty place. If people throw their trash away it will be a better place to live. My Gift to the World By Chase Neal I would get everyone to recycle. If everyone would recycle it would reduce the amount of waste in our landfills. Recycling will help reduce pollution. If we all recycle, our air, water and oceans, everything will be cleaner for everyone to enjoy. My Gift to the World By Emily Dobkin
I would like to give freedom to all. In places where there is no freedom, people don’t get to use their voice. They also don’t get to vote, and they don’t get to marry who they want to. I would like all people to have freedom like me! My Gift to the World By Abby Zilvitis
My gift to the world would be a weather-fixing machine. It changes the weather so that there is no more bad storms like hurricanes and tsunamis. The weather-fixing machine fixes weather by shooting lightning into the air to make it sunny. The weather-fixing machine is good because it will help stop people from dying from bad weather. It was really sad when people died from bad weather this year, so this machine will help it from happening again. My Gift to the World By Caitlin Sillianoff
I would have in the world more trees so we could breathe cleaner air. I think it’s a good idea because lots of people are getting sick because of smog. That’s my gift to the world! My Gift to the World By McKenzie Ball
I would like the world to have many treasure boxes. Every city would have a big treasure box. Every time a person would do something good they would get something they need. This would help people be nice to others. It would also make people happy. My Gift to the World By Sophia Smith
I wish people would be nicer. There would be no wars if people were nicer to each other. The world would be a better place to live. If people were nicer, everyone would be friendly to each other. We would all be happier! My Gift to the World By Matt Stallard
I would like to become a scientist and find a cure for cancer. I would give the medicine to everybody for free. All over the world people would stay healthy and nobody would die from cancer. My Gift to the World By John Radford
My gift to the world is a special medicine to make everyone healthy. To help the world we need lots of rain to help flowers, plants and trees. To help the world we have to take good care of it! To help the world we must keep the air clean. My Gift to the World By Drew Fleming
I would give poor people baby chicks. When the baby chicks grow up they can lay more eggs for the people to eat or sell. The poor people would not ask for food because they would have their own eggs. My Gift to the World By Lorelei Prettner
I would plant more trees and plants to make the world a better place. The trees would also provide oxygen to improve our quality of air. My Gift to the World By Claire West
I would like to see a cleaner world. I would go around and pick up trash wherever I see it. I would tell my friends to clean. If I was going on a trip and I saw trash, I would put it in the trashcan. Maybe I could start a National Trash Day! My Gift to the World By Megan Dingman
I would clean up the world. I would help the trees. I would have more medicine. I would have a science teacher to help the plants. My Gift to the World By David Payne
The people don’t litter! Then the animals would not get hurt by the plastic. I think the water would be cleaner and the fish would like that. Much of what is litter can be recycled. That would help with conservation. My Gift to the World By Jamie Weidman
I would pick up trash. I would recycle cans. I will not litter. I will be a good citizen. My Gift to the World By Anel Pineda
I like the plants. We have more trees in the world. I give more flowers. He work in the building. My Gift to the World By Sophia Rubini
I would like to see less litter in the world. I think with less litter the air and rivers would be much cleaner and the animals would have a safer place to live. My Gift to the World By Vincent Hess
It would be to make the world beautiful! So people would not chop down trees. I want more flowers. I don’t want lots of houses. My Gift to the World By Lauren Woodard
I will plant more trees. I will plant more flowers. I will try not to pollute the air. I will not litter. My Gift to the World By John Radford
