Young writers share their work

Horizon Prep School hosted an Author’s Tea on Jan. 21 to celebrate and treat great young writers at their school. Two children from grades first through fifth each got to read one of their works to an audience of family members.

The works varied from second grader Katie Nguyen’s piece about how to make an ice cream sundae to third grader Madison Fuller’s description of her dream house–the dream house included a hot tub in her room and space for her two horses and 20 guinea pigs.

Fourth grader Jackson Beare read some of his creative couplet poems and fifth grader Austin Merrill read from his essay on what he wants to be when he grows up. He read that he wanted to be a baseball player to not only make money but also make a difference; Merrill said he is short and has one blind eye and he wants to show others that anybody can play and be successful.

After the readings, there was an enviable spread with frosted cupcakes, sparkling sugar cookies and a chocolate fountain with marshmallows and fruit to dip in it. In addition to tea served in tiny blue teacups, children could opt for chocolate milk, which was chilled on ice.
