Johnny The Ghost

Have you ever met a ghost? Well, if you go to ONeill Public High school, then you have. Our ghost’s name is Johnny. He’s 15, he's a boy, and he lives in the lockers and hallways. He has black hair, freckles, and he wears an old school uniform( a white button-up shirt with a blue and white checkered sweater vest, a blue tie, black pants, and black dress shoes). He is so pale white that you can barely see any colors. He is tall, about five foot nine inches, and has a low and loud voice. You know he walks past you because there is a sudden stench of dirty old gym socks. He has a small nose so he can't smell how bad he smells and big ears so he hears everything.
Johnny is an mean ghost. When you are trying to get in and out of class, he rips the bottoms out of book bags so all of the contents fall to the ground. Sometimes he will slide everything off your desk. He pulls out chargers from laptops so you have to plug it back in constantly. Every once in a while, Johnny will turn off the bells so know one knows when class is over. When you pass through the hallways, he will jump out and scare you, hide in your lockers and scare you when you open them, and interrupt class with several rude comments.
Johnny is also very funny. He loves to stand on the tables at lunch and tell jokes the whole time and make everyone laugh(even the teachers!). Sometimes when you walk into class, there will be funny jokes or quotes on the board. He will make cell phones go off with some of the funniest ringtones and when you don’t answer them, he will send you a very funny text. 
In the end, Johnny isn't that horrible. He may make your life tuff, but he will also add some fun to it. He defiantly is very unique. He can be a trickster, scary, and funny all at the same time. Johnny is the best ghost I know.

Hogwarts Halloween Feast

         Hogwarts Halloween Feast 
         By: Rosie English 7 2nd Period

Today is Halloween at Hogwarts. After my classes, I go down to the Great Hall for the feast. The first thing I spot before I even step into the Great Hall are all of the activities outside. I see all the houses competing in pumpkin relays, apple bobbing, scavenger hunts, and pin the tail on the cat. 
When I walk into the Great Hall, I greet all of my friends. I see decorations all over the castle: black, orange, and white steamers spiraled on the pillars; confetti scattered on the tables and floor. The center pieces of the table are changed from the usual to sparkly Jack ‘O’ Lanterns. The Lights are dimmed and some of them are colored purple and orange. From the lights fake spider webs and spiders hang down. The ceiling is themed as a starless night with a full moon. At the edge of every table I see masks for everyone. Green for Slytherin, red for Gryffindor, yellow for Hufflepuff and blue for Ravenclaw.
When we all sit down at our tables, the food starts to appear. It all looks so delicious. There are mashed potatoes, pasta, steak, shrimp, bacon, roast beef, corn, and anything else you could think of. Then when we thought we ate all we could eat, dessert conjured. Candy corn, pumpkin pie, sugar cookies, chocolate, caramel apples, and jelly beans in every flavor. I decide to eat a jelly bean and picked  a vomit flavored one. “ Eww!” I said as all my friends laughed at me. To get rid of the disgusting flavor, I drink some pumpkin juice.
When the feast is over, we all go to our common rooms, talk, and have our little parties. Finally we go to bed. Everyone is ecstatic that classes start late the next day.

Nursery Rhyme Rewriten

"Ding, dong, bell..."
Ding, dong, bell,
Kitty's in the well!
deposited her in?
Tiny Tommy Green.
heaved her out?
Enormous Johnny Stout.

What a wayward boy was that,
To drown poor
Who never did him any harm,
murder the mice in his father's barn!
