I am thankful for…



…my family because they help me with my torn MCL. I’m also thankful for my friends because they help me out at school. I’m thankful for my school because I get to see my friends. I’m also thankful for my food/water.

~Emery Bartell



…food and water because I need it to live. I am thankful for shelter because I would like a place to live. I am also thankful for friends because I don’t want to be lonely and I want someone to play with. I am thankful for family because I like someone to take care of me. I also am thankful to have my cat, Starburst, because I like to play and cuddle with him.

~Kya Deck



…my cousins because they like me and they are really fun to be with. My parents because they support me and keep me healthy. My food and drinks because I can stay healthy from it. Life, so I can be alive.

~Alleen Erchoff-Costet



…for my house, clothes, food, water, my mom, my dad, and my sister. My dad is a good mechanic, my mom is a good cook, and my sister helps me with my homework. ~Travis Fisch



…my family because they take care of me and feed me good and healthy food. I am also thankful for my pets - my bird and dog. They are so fun to play with. My family also takes me to do fun stuff.

~Caden Gerard



…for my family because when I am sad, my mom and dad help me. I am thankful for my blanket, because my parents gave it to me when I was born. Also, for food. It is healthy for you, so you should eat it. Water is also good for you, so I am thankful to drink it. I am thankful for my house because when it is windy it keeps me warm. My two dogs are great. They cuddle with me. Last of all, I am thankful for school, because I learn.

~Adelia Gross



…for my friends because they help me with hard math questions. I am thankful for my family because my family does stuff with me. For my life because I get to spend time with people. I am thankful for my dog because my dog gets really excited when I feed her. I am thankful for school because if we didn’t have school no one would learn. Water, because in the summer people get dehydrated and water helps. ~Dylan Halverson



…my family because if I’m sad they cheer me up. My friends because I would not be so happy without them. Food because I would not be alive without food. Cops, firefighters, and doctors because a lot of people would have died if they were not here. My dogs, because they make me happy when I’m sad. ~Izabel Kaufmann



…my family because they can protect me. I am thankful for food and water so we don’t die. I am thankful for glasses so I can see. I am thankful for school so I can learn. ~Layla Kittleson



…for my brother, Liam, because he got really sick and got better. I love my mom and dad because they feed me and give me a home. ~Samuel Klug



…my family because I love them with all my heart. My friends because they are nice to me. My shelter because I would probably not be alive right now. My life because most people don’t have an awesome life like I do. My food and water because it helps me stay healthy. ~Brinley Middendorf



…for my family. I am thankful for food and water. I am also thankful for shelter. ~Faith Richards



…my cats because they are really nice to me, my family because they take care of me. I am also thankful for my school because I can learn a lot and there is an hour of math. I am also thankful for ambulance, firefighters, and cops because they make sure nothing bad happens. ~Hayden St. Mary



…for my family because they take me places and take good care of me, schools because they help me learn a lot of things to help in my life, people who help in the hospital so they can keep me healthy, and shelter so I don’t have to get rained on and bad storms wouldn’t cause much damage. ~Jada Strinmoen



…my school because I am getting a good education. My parents because they love me. My new bike because it rides very well. My bed because I would have nowhere to sleep. My house because I would be cold. ~Gunnar Torgerson



…for my mom and dad because if I did not have them I would not be here. I am thankful for my house because I would be cold at night if I did not have shelter. I am also thankful for school if I did not go I would not be this smart.
