Question Of The Month: Shipley’s Choice Elementary School


Each month, the Severna Park Voice poses a question to a local fifth-grade class. This month, students from Ms. Benefiel’s class at Shipley’s Choice Elementary School answered the question:

How have your parents or guardians made a difference in your life?

My parents have helped me have success in and out of school.

My dad has had a wonderful impact in my life, helping me do my best in softball. With his help, I have gotten a lot better in pitching and catching. My mom has helped me on the sidelines, always cheering me on during really tough games. She’s someone that I can always talk to and rely on.

My parents have made a difference by making sure I am always happy. At dinner, they always ask me how school was. Also, when I get home from playing with friends, they ask if I had fun. They also make a difference in my life by making sure I am OK. For example, if I don't look so good, they will ask me how I feel.
