Success Stories / Tavian

My name is Tavian and I just finished 5th grade. I had a really great year. My teacher was so funny! My favorite subject is science. Math is okay too, but my real favorite is recess.  When I started 5th grade, I got a red and black backpack with pencils, markers, paper, and, my favorite, a bobble head eraser. I got my backpack because I live at Huntington House and some really nice people donated money so me and my friends would be ready for school.  I’m really thankful for those people and I hope I get a new backpack this year too. Being a 6th grader is serious business and I’m definitely going to need a new bobble head eraser.
