Happy Thanksgiving

The celebration of Thanksgiving Day is one of our Nation’s most venerable and cherished traditions. Almost 200 years ago, the first President of these United States, George Washington, issued the first national Thanksgiving Day Proclamation under the Constitution and recommended to the American people that they “be devoted to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be.” . . .

A century ago, President Grover Cleveland called for “prayers and song of praise” that would render to God the appreciation of the American people for His mercy and for the abundant harvests and rich rewards He had bestowed upon our Nation through the labor of its farmers, shopkeepers, and tradesmen. Both of these Proclamations included something else as well: a recognition of our shortcomings and transgressions and our dependence, in total and in every particular, on the forgiveness and forbearance of the Almighty. . . .reagan

Thanksgiving Day summons every American to pause in the midst of activity, however necessary and valuable, to give simple and humble thanks to God. This gracious gratitude is the “service” of which Washington spoke. . . .

The images of the Thanksgiving celebrations at America’s earliest settlement — of Pilgrim and Iroquois Confederacy assembled in festive friendship – resonate with even greater power in our own day. People from every race, culture, and creed on the face of the Earth now inhabit this land. Their presence illuminates the basic yearning for freedom, peace, and prosperity that has always been the spirit of the New World.

In this year when we as a people enjoy the fruits of economic growth and international cooperation, let us take time both to remember the sacrifices that have made this harvest possible and the needs of those who do not fully partake of its benefits. . . .

President Ronald Reagan
1988

The Ram Perspective:

Tips to Live By
October 21, 2014
By 3rd Grader JJ

     Today, I will tell you why people are bullying. Based on what I know, people are broken down a
nd they want other people to feel the same. I wish people who bully would know it won't take them anywhere. If someone is broken down will you be kind and be their friend? People who bully just get worse and worse. The next thing you know is that nobody is their friend. If you're a bully reading this I hope you change.
    Some quick tips to remember:tag
         - Share kind words with each other
         - Don't bully
         - Share with others
         - Do not kick classmates
         - Watch where you are going
         - Be polite

A Study in Sarcasm
'Pain and Errors' or Physical Education

November 1, 2014

By 6th Grader AD & Contributors

     Have you ever wished that the class of Physical Education in schools could be a student choice versus an academic requirement? Well, in this month’s Roosevelt Ram Perspective, I would like to make the case for PE choice. If band and choir are at the discretion of students, then shouldn’t PE be discretionary as well? Building muscles and increasing lung capacity should not be forced upon me. I choose the life of lard.
     On the simplest level, I simply disdain running and jumping; being jostled about is not my forte. Physical activity for myself is falling into bed; soaring across the couch; and/ or lifting the fork from the dessert dish. You must understand that a person like me lacks the physical prowess and agility to succeed in PE. The voices in my head are telling me I can’t do it.

     Superheroes love PE and they should, but sidekicks like me would prefer a choice. How many times must I be creamed by a dodgeball or struggle to keep my lungs in my chest cavity? With great lard comes great obesity. I propose another alternative to PE: naptime.

not Winnie the Pooh!”
