Bright Prospects Students From Four Valley Schools Tell Us About Their Goals For 1998

Shape those flabby thighs. Spend less money. Spend more time with the family. Give work your all.

Sound familiar? It should. It was only last Jan. 1 that you made those promises.

It’s time again for New Year’s resolutions. Time to ponder the past, time to look forward. We’ve asked students at four Valley schools to tell us about their goals for 1998.

Inside today’s Valley Voice, those students - from Ness Elementary, East Valley Middle School, Valley Christian School and St. John Vianney Catholic School - share their hopes for the coming year.

Students’ resolutions range from catching a 10-pound fish to mastering multiplication to getting closer to God.

Whatever your own dream for 1998 might be, we wish you a happy New Year!
