Thursday, April 24, 2014 by BERNIE O'HARE in School

The sun did not shine.

It was too wet to play.

so they sat in the school

all that cold, cold, wet day.

But students at Freemansburg ES recently had a treat. Police Chief Todd Pantuso and Officer Ray Mead paid a visit to read Dr. Suess as part of "Read Across America." And they brought Thing One and Thing Two, too, who said, "How do you do?"Things One and Two were actually teachers Lindsey Artim and Kelsey Kalamar.

After reading Dr. Suess, curious second graders peppered Freemansburg's finest with questions.

Grade: 12

Family members: Willie Sun (dad); Jane Xia (mom)

Favorite subject: I have always had a strong interest in science, particularly biology and chemistry, because I enjoy looking at aspects of human life through a scientific lens and doing hands-on lab experiments. I find the subject challenging and a good exercise in analytical skills. I also love English because the books we read are interesting and thought-provoking and I like being in the flow of discussion and debates.
