Student profiles

Clayton Kyle Craig is the son of Kyle and Karen Craig and is in the third grade at Highland Elementary School.

What’s your idea of a perfect day? My idea of a perfect day is celebrating my birthday. I would go to the bowling alley, bowl and have lunch, come home to a family party, then have a sleep over with my friends and serve pizza and brownies.

Tell us about your pet(s): My family has three cats. My cat’s name is “Tiger.” He is special because when he plays with a toy he “growls” at his brothers when they come close. The funniest thing about Tiger is that he follows me to school every morning (we walk to school). He waits at the crosswalk or sometimes near the school’s back door. When my mom comes out of the school building, he jumps into the wagon that my mom pulls my sister in and rides home with them.

Who’s invited to your fantasy dinner party, and why? I would invite my school friend Michala to my fantasy dinner because I would like to be good friends with her. She is very nice, helps other people and is very, very pretty. This will probably never happen because her dad says she can’t have a boyfriend until she is 20.

Do you have a favorite joke? My favorite joke is: Meet the “Bigger” family, papa Bigger, mamma Bigger and baby Bigger. Which one is the biggest? Baby Bigger because he is just a little Bigger.

What is your most prized possession? My most prized possession is my Bible, because it is the word of God and it teaches you how to live your life.
