In our September issue, we asked kids to tell us about what they’re excited about as they begin a new school year. Below, find the winning entries. Amelia and Cristo each receive a $25 gift certificate to Crow Bookshop in Burlington.
Amelia VanDriesche, 12, Burlington
Out in the sun
Cristo Buckley, 12, Manchester
Going back to school,
So I won’t grow old and be a fool,
I got to see all my friends,
But I couldn’t choose my favorite,
I have so many of them,
I love my new teachers,
They are the best school leaders.
