Mid-Hudson News has launched a “Student Journalist” section to allow elementary, middle, and high-school students to write essays or “news as they see it” for submission. The following is an essay from one of our “Student Journalists”, Shea Toback.
PINE BUSH – This has been one really long, crazy month! At first, I was almost happy, thinking we would have 2 weeks off of school. I quickly then realized that this was a mess, a very serious mess. This is the first crisis I have ever had to live through, that many of us have ever lived through. COVID-19 has changed everything.
My name is Shea Toback. I am a 6th-grade student at Crispell Middle School in Pine Bush. I am 11 years old. I am a defensive end and goalkeeper for Team Ember, TWSC, I can’t wait to play 2nd base for Team Finest, PBLL. I love spending time with my friends. I love golfing with my Grandpa. I love Chinese food!
If you have a student that is interested in writing a submission, please send an email to Todd Bender at firstname.lastname@example.org and include a brief bio and picture of the student along with a note from the parent giving us permission to edit and post the story and photograph.
