KLS Carnival
We are having a carnival at KLS this week. This carnival is based on endangered species that we have learned about in the past. We chose this endangered animal topic by votes, and most of the students entered their vote as endangered species, so we stuck with that topic and decided to have a carnival for the term project.

Most people were learning a language on Duolingo, but two of my friends and I were working hard on putting together the first issue of “KLS Weekly,” the school newspaper.
