December 26, 2012 - Kennerly Elementary fourth-graders in Lindbergh offered the following New Year's resolutions:
My New Year's resolution is to brush my dog's teeth.
Brushing a dog's teeth is really important. If a dog doesn't have clean teeth, then it may go to its lungs. I will also take him for walks and feed him more often. That is my New Year's resolution.
For the next year, my New Year's resolution will be to start helping out in my community. I think this is a good resolution because I think I could really make a difference. One way I can help is by picking up trash in my neighborhood. I hope it will make me a better person.
Hear me. Hear me. I am Eden in the fourth grade. I am here to talk about my New Year's resolution. First of all, to all you younger sisters, do not tease your older brothers. I have made this a resolution, because I have teased my brother a lot in 2012. I want to stop this habit, because it has interfered with our time together. Sometimes our parents tell us, "If you don't stop fighting, you will have to be separated." Well, we don't want to. I mean, I love my brother, but we fight a lot. It also interferes with our family time. I want to stop this habit. I want to get along.
My resolution is to get straight A's every report card. I picked this goal because I want to be a better student. Three steps I'll follow are first to get A's on tests. Second, I will turn assignments in on time. Lastly, I would study for tests. If I achieve this goal I will feel proud. Also, I will feel happy because it's a hard goal.
My New Year's resolution is to be as successful as this quarter — because I did good this quarter and I got good grades. I will have to study every night. I will have to think hard and stop talking. I will focus on math, then my friends. I will feel awesome when I achieve this goal. Because I want to get a good scholarship and I need good grades to make it. And that's My New Year's resolution.
My 2013 New Year's resolution is being an Academic All-Star. I want to do this because I'd like to be smart in my future. 1. I will do this by studying and working hard. 2. I will also do this by playing educational games. 3. I will do good on my MAP test. Once I achieve this, I will be very happy and cheerful. That's my New Year's resolution.
My New Year's resolution is to get more A's and B's on my tests because I've been getting lower grades lately and I really want to achieve this. I will study hard. I will fix my mistakes. I will watch out what I write. When I achieve this goal, I will feel proud of myself and know that I could do better.
My 2013 New Year's resolution is to be a great gymnast and to move up a level in gymnastics. This is important to me because over a lot of the year I have fallen in love with gymnastics. Here are three steps I will take to meet my goal: 1. Work hard in my gymnastics class. 2. Practice hard at home. 3. Practice in class and listen to the teacher.
After I achieve this goal, I will feel good but not just me, my dad makes me feel good, too. I like when I get to meet and have a new teacher.
Mehlville School District fourth-graders offered the following resolutions:
For my New Year's resolution, I promise to do more chores. I will be the best at tennis. I will learn more about electricity items and past inventions.
My New Year's resolution is to take my time. Because, say I have a math test, I'm the first one done. And if I fail, that's going to stink. So I'm going to make sure I check over my work.
My New Year's resolution is to improve my grades. I will study for my tests that I get. I will be nice to my sitter and read a lot to boost my reading grade. I will listen to my teacher and follow directions. I will be helpful and nice and kind.
My New Year's resolution is to get good grades, respect my family and be nice to my cousin. Never do whatever I want — which I don't always get my way. It's better to do my work and study than play on my laptop. Never be late for school. Hmm — I might stay up late a little bit about 1 on New Year's so I can watch and play TV while my mom and grandma sleep.
My New Year's resolution is to improve my grades and listen better. I will not play with my stuff in my desk when my teacher is talking. I will not yell at my dog when she licks me in the face and steps on my toes and scratches me.
My New Year's resolution is to make new friends by trying my hardest every day to be as nice as I can. I will talk to people at recess who I think will make great friends. I have already made two friends and it isn't even 2013 yet!
One of my New Year's resolutions for 2013 is to remember to feed my hamster without being asked. There have been times when my mom looks into my hamster's cage and her food bowl only has a few pellets in there.
Another one of my resolutions is to get better at gymnastics. I decided on that because I felt that I'm not putting enough effort into it.
For 2013, one of my goals is to stop biting my nails. I plan to tell myself not to and get something small to eat instead.
