A class of fourth graders in Sparks, Nevada will be sending up a high altitude balloon with messages of hope on Thursday May 27th.  What is a message of hope?

  • Something you think our community (Oak Park) needs;
  • Something that you think would improve our school;
  • Something that would make the world a better place;

You can read more about it here.  Please leave a comment with your message of hope here, and I will give it to Mr. Crosby to include on the balloon. Remember, you are representing our school and community. Make sure your comment is appropriate, and reflects your best work. Thank you!

    Something that would make the world better? Something that will make the world better is recycling. Recycling helps the Earth better because it is better to breath with when you have a lot of oxygen and trees. The trees help us by taking in carbon dioxide and that helps us a lot. This is going to make the World better.

    One thing that Oak Park needs is more trees and plants. Another thing to improve is our schools because the grades are not good. One more thing is that some thing to make the environment is we need to stat to save patrolmen, recycling bottles, reduce using less papers , and keep the planet clean. This is what we people of planet Earth needs to do to save the planet not to end. This is what I wrote about. Wait we especially need to save the rainforest. I am hoping that we can save this planet.

    My hope is that people should stop putting oil in the water and stop littering on the on the street. My hope is that every one should pick up bottles,cans,and trash and put them in the trashcans and recycle the bottles.

  • Yuruvith S.

    My hope is that people should recycle, be more caring ,and less in the gang. Now days too many people don’t recycle which is bad for the environment because today there is only a bit of petroleum. Also people should be more caring because people are really mean to each other these days. The last and important is the less gangs in the environment. People are afraid because in the news their is too much violence in the community that they are even afraid to lose a beloved member of their family. People should have respect and treat others the way they want to be treated!!!

  • shelley v.

    I hope that the children or people will get what they want, and I also think that even though they get what they want they should do something good. Another thing is that people should recycle things and not let the state be very messy or dirty, so I think that this state will at least have a good a clean. I also hope that their will have no sticky finger in this school or the whole entire state , so their will be no people that go to Juvenal Hall just because they did something bad.

  • Adriana R.

    My hope is that people should all be friends and get along with each other. Also so we can save the world like recycling and many other things.

  • steven m.

    We should go green by making more trees like planting more. The reason I said that we should plant more because if we do that we would have more air to breathe.
