Simple Star by Jordan

Let them be as clouds, 
always in everyone's way,
taking up nothing but space,
trying to attract all the attention they can.  

I'd rather be a simple star, 
only come out during the night, 
shine equally among others
I'd rather shine in my little space ,

than take up room and cover over everyone, 
selfish, conceded, only care about themselves
and not those  around them.

 I'd rather be a small light, 
out in the open,
for anyone to see, 
than block out everyone in sight
and only focus on me.

Uniforms by Abby age 12


So how do you feel about school uniforms? Some think that uniforms are helpful in more ways than one. Supporters of the school uniform think that uniforms prevent bullying. They think that if everyone wears the same thing, than nobody would be made fun of because of what they wear. When these supporters say that, they could be right but that doesn’t mean that under all circumstances that someone would be teased. A slightly less significant argument is that children that go to schools that wear uniforms say that it is easier in the morning to pick out what they would be wearing.

On the other hand, people like me who think uniforms are unnecessary have a much more different opinion. We think that uniforms are a restriction for kids who like to express themselves. Me and many other kids like to express their personalities through different types of clothing, and many of us like to sport certain types of styles that we like. I personally think that bullying is a problem that shouldn’t be associated with what types of fashions kids wear, because someone bullying someone for their clothing is probably a bully even when it doesn’t have anything to do with clothes. So what do you think? Are school uniforms necessary or irrelevant? 


Fashion by Abby age 12


What does fashion mean to you? It could mean just about anything, as long as it is something you love.

Firstly, fashion should express your individuality. Whenever your wearing something, it should make you feel unique, even if some of your favorite fashions are what lots of other people are wearing. Don’t feel afraid to wear what you want. No matter what other people may think.

Secondly, you have to have appreciation for the designer or brand of your garments. For example, UGG boots are really popular. Maybe a lot of people you know own a pair. Just because you’ve seen many people wear them, you shouldn’t have to feel obliged to buy some just because everyone else is wearing them. If anything, I think it would be more admirable to set you own trends, rather than blending in with the crowd.

Lastly, if your having trouble finding a style that really speaks to you, you can find inspiration in the people around you and you can even find inspiration in nature! And of course, you can always flip through magazines to see what’s trendy.
