We Are Union

by Trisana, age 10

We Are Union is a Facebook page that basically tells stories about Harrison Park and Union High School students. It tells positive stories about students and includes a picture of the student. When we have exceptional students we want to interview the students. They think it will be good to let people know that the schools are very nice schools. They are exceptional schools, and there are indeed good people at the schools.

 

Debate Team at Harrison Park School

by Diego, age 10

The debate team gives students a chance to give their opinion and also facts and they can agree and disagree with each other. It is for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. It meets Mondays after school. Students do research to find facts and then have opportunities to debate them.

Winter Safety

by Maryanne, age 10, and Janyea, age 10

Snow is causing kids that walk to school danger. All drivers need to be aware and should be careful for little kids. They have to be careful on Muskegon St, Myrtle St. and Davis in the morning and afternoons, after school. Some people want to know why there is no crossing guard at Leonard and Alpine.

 

be nice.

by Maryanne, age 10, and Alfredo, age 11

"be nice." Is a program at Harrison Park School to help kids be nicer to each other. Too many kids are talking back to the person that is saying nice things. We want all kids to be nicer and not mean to each other every day at school.
