Those are my goals in the wonderful 2011.\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cstrong\x3ESecond place\x3Cbr /\x3EJacob Manly\x3C/strong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EMy New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution is to get better at baseball and football. \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EI want to get better at baseball, because I want to play for a long time and even try to play in the Major Leagues when I\x26rsquo\x3Bm older. I want to get better at football, because I play football at school, and every once in a while, I drop a pass or throw an interception. That is my New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution.\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cstrong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EThird place\x3Cbr /\x3EIan Seeley\x3C/strong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EFor my New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution, I will start working harder on my work and stop talking in class. I will also start being nicer to my friends and my pets. I will also start going outside and stop staying inside. I will start taking my pets outside more and let them fly around. And that is what I will do for my new year.\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cstrong\x3EBlake Kuykendall\x3C/strong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EMy New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution is to go to Knott\x26rsquo\x3Bs Berry Farm. I want to go there because it\x26rsquo\x3Bs really fun. They have so many rides there. It\x26rsquo\x3Bs so much fun, I can\x26rsquo\x3Bt even explain it. My favorite ride is Supreme Scream. It\x26rsquo\x3Bs not really a ride, but you go 360 feet in the air and drop. Thanks for listening to my New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution.\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cstrong\x3EKaleb Quesada\x3C/strong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EMy New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution is to listen to my mom by not being a brat, picking up my dog\x26rsquo\x3Bs poop, getting good grades in school and most of all, getting ready for bed at 8:30 p.m. so I can be in bed at 9 p.m. That\x26rsquo\x3Bs mostly good for me so I don\x26rsquo\x3Bt get tired for school. Anyway, that\x26rsquo\x3Bs my New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution. I wonder what will be my next New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution?\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cstrong\x3EJustin Ocuma\x3C/strong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EMy New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution is to do well in school. I want to do that by doing all my homework and projects. \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EAfter school, I would walk home from school and do my homework right away. When all my homework is done, I would read two chapters of my book from the school library. \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EOn some weekdays, I would have practice at 5 and 6 p.m. Those practices would be on Monday and Wednesday. \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EI want to do my homework and projects, so I can show my parents that I am doing well in school. So that is my New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution.\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cstrong\x3EJared Regalado\x3C/strong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EFor my New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution: I will not get in trouble\x3B I will be nice to people I first meet\x3B I will be nice to my parents\x3B I will not play my PlayStation 3 a lot\x3B I will help my parents, like when they cook food or when they do the laundry. This is my New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution.\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cstrong\x3EKristina Blackledge\x3C/strong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EMy New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution is to be better in science. Science is important for your education. In fifth grade, they give you a grade, and mine is always a 1 or 2. This year, I will start studying for tests and start listening more, because if you listen more, the more you will know. Maybe if I do this I will get better grades. That\x26rsquo\x3Bs my idea for a New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution.\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cstrong\x3ECato Abraham\x3C/strong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EMy New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution is to help my parents around the house by cleaning up things. \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3ESome things I will do to help clean up is taking out the trash, washing the dishes, vacuuming the house, feeding and walking the dog, helping out with the front yard and things like that. \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EBy doing some of these things it will not only help my parents, but it will help me to be responsible and grow up to do these things when I get older and have my own house. This is my New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution.\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cstrong\x3ENari Maloo\x3C/strong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EMy New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution is to keep my room in good condition. \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EIn order to do this, I will have to make my bed blanket over the blanket and put my pillows side by side. \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EThat\x26rsquo\x3Bs not the only thing I will have to do. I will also have to keep my desk clean \x26mdash\x3B like, keep it clear and organized. \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EAnother thing is my TV area. There\x26rsquo\x3Bs not much to do but to keep it neat. And that is my New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution.\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cstrong\x3EKamari Hilton\x3C/strong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EMy New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution is to be a math expert when I get older. \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EMy second resolution is to overcome my fears so I won\x26rsquo\x3Bt be scared of them. \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EMy third resolution is to do good in school, keep track of my school assignments, turn in projects on time and to get even better grades than I have now. Those are my resolutions. \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cstrong\x3EVanessa Lara\x3C/strong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EMy New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution is to read more. I am not a fan of books, but some are very interesting. Anyway, I want to read more to get smarter because knowledge is power. I can be smarter in sixth grade if I read. What is your New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution?\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cstrong\x3EAmanda Doucette\x3C/strong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EMy New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution is doing more of what I love most: writing. Writing is one thing I really love to do. \x3Cbr /\x3EOnce, I wrote a story about a dream I had! \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EWhen I was little, about 5 or 6, I wrote short, little stories. \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EI remember one was called \x26ldquo\x3BThe Cat and the Dog.\x26rdquo\x3B When I was that little, I used to write them in notebooks so I\x26rsquo\x3Bd have them forever. I actually still have some of them. \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EMy essays have been published in The Signal\x26rsquo\x3Bs Zone for Kids before. So if anybody has read them, they know they\x26rsquo\x3Bre pretty long. That\x26rsquo\x3Bs why I love writing! \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EWhen I was in third grade, a story that I wrote was based on my class, and me too! \x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EMy character\x26rsquo\x3Bs name was Bambi Sulliven. The only reason this is my New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution is because I have a very big imagination, and like I mentioned before, I used to write a lot when I was little. Did I mention Amanda loves to write?\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cstrong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EChristos Stefanos\x3C/strong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EI want to rewrite my homework and get it right the first time, pay more attention to my parents and to make every day the best day ever by doing more and more things. I want this new year to be the best year I ever had. I\x26rsquo\x3Bm done here, so have a happy new year!\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3E\x3Cstrong\x3EAdam Goossen\x3C/strong\x3E\x3Cbr /\x3EMy New Year\x26rsquo\x3Bs resolution is to get better grades, better report cards and a better attitude. If I get these better, I could get a cell phone and more privileges, like Xbox on weekdays and a lot more. I hope I can do this over 2011. Go 2011, I hope it rocks.\x3C/p\x3E

The following essays were submitted by fifth-grade students from Live Oak Elementary School.

First place
Devin Sims

In 2011, my goals are: to start being outside more; to get fit by playing sports such as football and basketball; to do a little better on my math by trying to understand the concepts more; score at least two touchdowns when playing flag football at the Castaic Sports Complex; and get up on my Accelerated Reader points for reading.

Also, I want to: start saving my money more instead of spending, whenever I get a couple of dollars; and get into more activities than flag football at the Sports Complex. Those are my goals in the wonderful 2011.

Second place
Jacob Manly

My New Year’s resolution is to get better at baseball and football.

I want to get better at baseball, because I want to play for a long time and even try to play in the Major Leagues when I’m older. I want to get better at football, because I play football at school, and every once in a while, I drop a pass or throw an interception. That is my New Year’s resolution.

Third place
Ian Seeley

For my New Year’s resolution, I will start working harder on my work and stop talking in class. I will also start being nicer to my friends and my pets. I will also start going outside and stop staying inside. I will start taking my pets outside more and let them fly around. And that is what I will do for my new year.

Blake Kuykendall
My New Year’s resolution is to go to Knott’s Berry Farm. I want to go there because it’s really fun. They have so many rides there. It’s so much fun, I can’t even explain it. My favorite ride is Supreme Scream. It’s not really a ride, but you go 360 feet in the air and drop. Thanks for listening to my New Year’s resolution.

Kaleb Quesada
My New Year’s resolution is to listen to my mom by not being a brat, picking up my dog’s poop, getting good grades in school and most of all, getting ready for bed at 8:30 p.m. so I can be in bed at 9 p.m. That’s mostly good for me so I don’t get tired for school. Anyway, that’s my New Year’s resolution. I wonder what will be my next New Year’s resolution?

Justin Ocuma
My New Year’s resolution is to do well in school. I want to do that by doing all my homework and projects.

After school, I would walk home from school and do my homework right away. When all my homework is done, I would read two chapters of my book from the school library.

On some weekdays, I would have practice at 5 and 6 p.m. Those practices would be on Monday and Wednesday.

I want to do my homework and projects, so I can show my parents that I am doing well in school. So that is my New Year’s resolution.

Jared Regalado
For my New Year’s resolution: I will not get in trouble; I will be nice to people I first meet; I will be nice to my parents; I will not play my PlayStation 3 a lot; I will help my parents, like when they cook food or when they do the laundry. This is my New Year’s resolution.

Some things I will do to help clean up is taking out the trash, washing the dishes, vacuuming the house, feeding and walking the dog, helping out with the front yard and things like that.

Nari Maloo
My New Year’s resolution is to keep my room in good condition.

In order to do this, I will have to make my bed blanket over the blanket and put my pillows side by side.

That’s not the only thing I will have to do. I will also have to keep my desk clean — like, keep it clear and organized.

Another thing is my TV area. There’s not much to do but to keep it neat. And that is my New Year’s resolution.

Kamari Hilton
My New Year’s resolution is to be a math expert when I get older.

My second resolution is to overcome my fears so I won’t be scared of them.

My third resolution is to do good in school, keep track of my school assignments, turn in projects on time and to get even better grades than I have now. Those are my resolutions.

Vanessa Lara
My New Year’s resolution is to read more. I am not a fan of books, but some are very interesting. Anyway, I want to read more to get smarter because knowledge is power. I can be smarter in sixth grade if I read. What is your New Year’s resolution?

Amanda Doucette

My character’s name was Bambi Sulliven. The only reason this is my New Year’s resolution is because I have a very big imagination, and like I mentioned before, I used to write a lot when I was little. Did I mention Amanda loves to write?

Christos Stefanos

I want to rewrite my homework and get it right the first time, pay more attention to my parents and to make every day the best day ever by doing more and more things. I want this new year to be the best year I ever had. I’m done here, so have a happy new year!

Adam Goossen
My New Year’s resolution is to get better grades, better report cards and a better attitude. If I get these better, I could get a cell phone and more privileges, like Xbox on weekdays and a lot more. I hope I can do this over 2011. Go 2011, I hope it rocks.

Transcript of New Year’s Resolution Essay

My Resolution’s Personal Improvement School and the outside world Continued… Family and Friends Now, everyone has family problems, and the New Year is the best time to fix some of them. I would like to work on fighting less with my brother and more on work together, because even the smallest bicker can lead to something terrible. Sunday, January 6 we were leaving to go to my grandma’s to open Christmas presents and on the way out of the door me and my brother were fighting about how I thought the presents were heavy and that I wanted to hurry up and get there and my brother forgot to close the bedroom door. Then when we came back there on the rug was coupling (our dog) and Abby (our guinea pig) and what coupling did was a very bad thing, she had killed Abby. Now we know that even the smallest of things can lead to the very worst of things. (Abby, we love you. R.I.P) 5….4….3….2….1..Happy New Year!!! YAY! It is the start of a new year, which means the start of a new Me! When I can start fresh, fix things that went wrong last year, make new friends, see new things, and go new places. New Year’s Resolution! And finally, this year I want to work more on my homework and less time messing around because my grades are dropping because of it. And if my grades stay bad then I can get kicked out of the school, and I really like this school it is fun and give me lots of opportunities. But if I get my work done then I will have good grades and still have time to do things and have fun. I would rather have good grades and all the rewards and good things that go with it, then have bad grades and get all the punishments that go with it just because I wanted to mess around. Well, years end and new ones start, but each one is different in their own way. How I will make this one different is I will work really hard to make track (to make my family proud), I will fight less with my brother because (even small things can lead to bad things), and I will work more on my homework and less on playing around so I can pull my grades up and stay at STEMM, (you get rewarded for good grades and punished for bad). I have some really big resolutions, looks like I better get started if I want to do them! More Info: Teacher: Mrs.Perkins

Period: 1st
Date: 01/16/13 By: Taylor Ducharme I wonder what my New Year’s Resolution will be. Will i clean up my act, will i help the environment! Well… let’s find out. Okay, everyone knows at the start of a new year old sports leave, and new ones come in. So football, soccer, and tennis are out. And Baseball, basketball, and TRACK are IN! I love running I always have I got the sport from my mother, she said that when she was pregnant with me she was still running so technically I was running with her. It is a passion of mine to become a doctor or a long distance runner. Continued….. I want to try out for track, so I am going to practice my hardest, and do my very best. If I were to make the team it would be the best thing ever! I would stretch myself beyond my limits and push myself to the top! Just to make me, my mum, and my family proud of me! Conclusion And those are my Resolution thanks for watching!! Just ask me you have any questions
