Each week, The Sentinel publishes stories we receive to prompts in Kids World and on www.cumberlink.com. This week’s Kids Speak Out prompt was “My goal for the new year is ...”

“My New Year’s resolution is to do my homework the second I get into the door. I choose this one because I always forget about my homework and end up doing them in the morning or late at night.”

“My goal for the new year is to help more people. I am planning to make a stand of lemonade in the summer and hot chocolate in the winter. I like to help people.”

“My goal for the new year is trying to invent the first teleporter. I want to be an inventor when I grow up, and I want to build the teleporter. So does Caleb, my brother. I hope we succeed because it could take days, weeks, months and maybe even years! I want the teleporter to be my first invention. I want to start on it so badly. That is my goal for the new year.”

“My goal for the new year is when I get my report card back, I have all A’s. Another goal I have is to get at least $150 so I can get a FitBbt so I can have one of those.”

“My goal for the new year is to increase my basketball and softball skills. I play on one age group up from mine, so I really want to play just like how the older girls play. I know it will take a lot of time to complete my goal, but if my dad takes me to a field on a daily basis, I know I can.”

“My goal for the new year is to maybe read more books. That’s because I have not read all that many books this year or two years ago.”

Vivian Dorsey, 9

Upper Allen Elementary School

“My goal for the new year is to donate as much stuff to people (as I can), so they stay happy and they have stuff. The reason why is people might not have homes and they don’t have what we have. .. They don’t (have) a new pair of clothes to change into every night. They don’t get toys and presents like we do. They don’t go to school like we do. So that’s why I give people stuff that we do have. I know a good saying: It’s better to give, not get.”

Colin Walker

“My goal for the new year is to be nicer to my brother, Zack. That’s my goal because I can be really mean to him. He is a really good brother to me, so I am going to be a good sister to him.”
