This weeks episode of the Falcon Flash is a about the kids from Gardner School and their winter breaks. Here are some of their stories.
Preschooler Wyatt Perrino says, he didn’t do much because he stayed home. He got a cool Thomas the Train, a dinosaur a racecar and some other cool stuff.
For the kinder addition we interviewed Isabella Trujillo says she went to Walsenburg to visit family. She said she got a snow machine, a two BB guns from her grandma and uncle. She also got a real guitar, a pair of shoes, a Nintendo DS, a digital camera and finally a talking Care Bear.
First grader, Camila, went to Mexico where she got on her grandma’s roof and let go a balloon sent to the three kings instead of Santa Clause. She got paint, a lot of paint.
The fourth grade edition, Carissa, also went to Mexico where she said it was hot. She said that in Mexico there are parties that begin at 12:00 PM and last until 2:00 AM.
Fifth grader, Wyatt, went hunting with his mother and brother and snowboarding with his father and brother. The rest of the time he worked with his father.
Sixth grader, Hannah, travelled to Wisconsin to visit some of her family. The roads were really slick! She got a Wii for Christmas.
Rebecca, a seventh grader, spent 3 days together for New Year. The celebrated by staying up all night talking.
It seems like all students had a great break and we’re all back at school ready for the second semester!
