Thank you letters from Mr. Boots' class:



SEQUIM MIDDLE SCHOOL

Students in Steven Boots' class wrote about Newspapers in Education.



Thank you so much for supplying all of us students with the information in life and things about our peers around us! From me and all the people and students at SMS. Thank You!

- Isaac Boyd



Thank you for all the work you put into making the newspaper.

I really enjoyed reading all the articles that you have printed. My favorite thing to read in the paper is either the crime reports or upcoming events. Without the newspaper I would be very, very uninformed about the things that are going on in our little town.

I learned that outside of my bubble there is a world full of exciting events and crazy stories. That everyone's life is different with memories of joy and sorrow that are spoken of in the Gazette.

I think it's awesome how the Gazette appeals to many different varieties and ages of people. I always love the puzzles and riddles in section B of the newspaper, under sports and schools.

Thank you for all you do! For everything, and keeping Sequim well informed about the world around us.

- Heidi Stallman



I want to thank you for generously giving Mr. Boots' classes the newspaper every week. Reading the newspaper has increased my vocabulary and literary skills, and has kept me up on what's going on in our town and separate communities. I learned many things from the newspaper that I would have never learned otherwise, like the scores and times from the high school's football and track teams. The track times in the newspaper have made me strive to beat their times and improved mine.

I definitely enjoyed reading the comics in the C-section of the newspaper, (community), they were always funny and brightened my day just a little bit. I also thought seeing my essay that I wrote in Mr. Boots' class in the newspaper was totally awesome. Also, reading my classmates essays was enjoyable. I also learned some life lessons about what not to do with my life from some of the stories of the knuckleheads that get published. Thank you once again for your generous donation all throughout the school year.

I would like to thank you for providing me/Mr. Boots' class with the newspaper. I learned many things from it. I enjoyed reading and looking at the sports section the most! Thank you so much again for this wonderful resource that you provide for us, so we are able to know what is going on in our community.

- Monserrat Tinoco V.



Thank you very much for providing us the newspaper so all students have the ability to learn about what is going on in Sequim. I learned a lot about the Irrigation Festival and providing the newspaper for Mr. Boots' class was a very generous offer. I am lucky that I have a lot of information about Sequim because I just moved here last year. Thank you for giving us the Sequim Gazette to read, and I will enjoy reading the newspaper for my life.

- Henry Marthan

I wanted to thank you for providing all of Mr. Boots' class with the newspaper. I learned a lot about Sequim during the course of the year. I enjoyed reading all the sports sections to see how the high school sports are doing. Thank you again for letting Mr. Boots' class have the newspaper.

I want to thank you for providing me/Mr. Boots' class the newspaper. I learned a lot about our city/town. Sequim is changing so much it's incredible. I would have never known most of the stuff that's going on today. I enjoyed getting the paper because it's a interesting way to get informed. Also reading about where I live is fun.

- Sara Mobley



I want to thank you for providing me and Mr. Boots' class with the newspaper. I learned new things weekly, from sales in stores, to kittens. I enjoyed having the newspaper to look forward to every week. I loved having word searches and weekly writing corners. So thanks again to all the people that contributed to packing the gazette full of wonder.

- Kennedy



I want to thank you for providing me and Mr. Boots' first period class, with the newspaper.

I learned about a beautiful trail. I also learned about who is helping in Haiti from Sequim and what they're doing to help.

I really enjoyed the section where you publish some of my classmates' writings in there. I liked looking at the pets-cats/dogs, and the comics.

Thank you so much again, it's really nice of you.

- Hayley Rofimson



Thank you for the newspaper.

It taught me about the world and the community around me, how bad and good things are always happening. How the economy is crumbling. How the spring flowers blooming.

Thank you for the newspaper. It showed me what sports and games are active today also, what community activities there are to join like basketball, knitting, the Boys & Girls Club, and more. The paper is what I used for knowledge.

Thanks you for the newspaper. I used it very well as confetti when shredded or plaster when glued and my birds use it too. I always read all I can before its final use.

- Emily Anderson



I want to thank you for providing me/Mr. Boot's class with the information filled newspaper. Throughout the school year by reading the newspaper I learned a lot of things, like sports, accidents (car crashes), and stuff like whats new in Sequim. I enjoyed reading the newspaper because not only do I learn things from it, but I also get a better vocabulary when reading. Thank you so much.

- Brittany Zuck



I wanted to thank you for providing me and the rest of Mr. Boots' class newspaper to read! It was a great and simple opportunity to learn what's happening in our community.

And also gave us a way to get published in the paper. I enjoyed reading and writing all the spontaneous essays me and my classmates wrote and seeing what things they had to say in each one.

Well, thank you again for the newspaper. I think it would be a good idea for Mr. Boots' class next year to have the newspaper and the year after that.

- Sabrina Cook

I want to thank you for providing me/Mr. Boots' class the newspaper that is very kind and thoughtful. I learned lots of great stuff about our city including the article about the irrigation festival and what I think was something that I learned and enjoyed was the article about the twin foals.

I want to thank you for providing our classes with newspapers. Mr. Boots classes have a chance to get them every week and its really helped.

I learned many things from reading the paper such as whats going on, how the schools are doing, many different things that mean something, or relates to me in many ways.

I enjoyed reading the newspaper, and learning different things and being smart, or being smarter then most average people.

I wanted to thank you for giving Mr. Boots 2nd period class the newspaper. I know that you give it to other classes but I think we used and enjoyed it the most. I hope in the future that you give kids the Sequim Gazette so they can gain the same knowledge about their community that we got this year. I learned about a lot of homeless organizations that donate clothes and about the new store we are getting at the old Rite-Aid land plot. I enjoyed the stories about the storms in Sequim. The writers brought out the detail like I was there in spirit. Thank you again Sequim Gazette.
