New Year resolutions from a few 5th graders at TBE

What sort of resolutions do they make? A few Fifth Graders at TBE shared their resolutions with Coastal Breeze News. It is interesting to note what concern is on a youngster’s mind. Some of these resolutions prove children really do listen to their parents! A few are unsigned.
