Hi, Iím Paris. Iím in the 5th grade in Miss Pointyís class & Iím a good student ­ I even started the Extreme Readerís Club!

At church they say that His eye is on the sparrow, but his eye doesnít seem to be on my brother who gets beat up on the playground. And it didnít seem to be on my piano teacher when her family died in Germany.

Did you know she used to be in a gang? Itís true! She has a tattoo and she gave me her gang symbol ­ itís a six-pointed yellow star.  (Stella Shafer, MLIS student, iSchool, University of Washington)
