A DAY AT SCHOOL
Esca Emswiler, 11
One snowy morning last winter, one of my schoolmates and I started
The snow was hard and slick and we would fall down every step we made. We started about
eight oclock in the morning, school being taken in at nine, this gave us one hour to
make the distance.
The roads were so bad that we could not go fast and we were tardy.
That day we had a big time at school.
We went coasting and sliding on the ice, which we thought was great sport. We also had a
game of snow balling at noon. We chose sides and chose a captain for each side. The
captain made the rules for the game to see that these rules were carried out.
My side came out victorious and I, of course, was among the boys who rejoiced.
