Janet Bleggi’s second- and third-grade class at Pinecrest School in Annandale, Virginia, is the October Class of KidsPost. These 12 students have different interests, but one thing they can agree on is loving pizza. Christmas is the holiday favorite of this class, and the majority of the kids have pets.
We will feature one class in grades two through seven each month of the school year. If you would like your class considered, ask your teacher to download our questionnaire at wapo.st/classofkidspost2018, have students fill it out and send it, along with a class picture, to email@example.com. Classes chosen receive a KidsPost Chesapeake Bay poster, books and KidsPost pencils. Teachers interested in learning more about KidsPost can sign up for our weekly email at wapo.st/kidspostteachers.
Favorite singer or musician: This class also couldn’t agree on one favorite singer. But one thing they can agree on is the genre: Their taste is classic bands such as the Beatles and AC/DC.
Favorite game, sport or hobby: Soccer scored the most with four votes. Tag was second with two votes. Other hobbies include reading, ice skating and playing Monopoly.
Person, living or dead, you admire most: Mom earned two votes as someone they admire. One student specifically cited their mother’s kindness. Other students chose their grandfather, brother and rabbi as someone they look up to.
Favorite website or app: Three votes went to Minecraft as the all-time favorite game. YouTube got second place with two votes. Ms. Bleggi’s class also enjoys watching Netflix and playing Candy Crush and Webkinz.
If you could go on a trip anywhere, where would you go? There was a tie between Korea and Hawaii, with two votes each. Other destinations the class hopes to visit are Disney World, Montana and France.
Favorite birthday food: Pizza is the ultimate birthday food with nine votes. Pork came in second with two votes. (One student picked pork because they had never tried it.)
Favorite holiday: Christmas came in first with six votes. Halloween came in second with two votes.
Do you have a pet or pets? Seven students have pets, and there was a tie between cats and dogs, with three votes each. One student has a pet fish and a toad.
What do you want to be when you grow up? Three students want to become chefs and cook delicious food. Two want to become soccer stars. Becoming a doctor or an explorer also made the list.
If you were president, what’s one thing you would do to help the country or its people? These would-be leaders couldn’t settle on just one idea. One student would require people to stop smoking. Another would call for underground tunnels to be built for police to take shortcuts when they’re on the chase. And a third student would require people to eat ice cream every day.
