A Texas high school student has been suspended for writing the word "YOLO" on the essay portion of an exam, then tweeting a photo of the page to school officials. The high school junior defended his actions by noting that the test would have no impact on his G.P.A and would not be screened by universities. However, the Arlington school district felt it was no laughing matter and have disciplined the student with a four-day on-campus suspension.

Instead of sending out the boring, old, "Welcome Back" newsletter, Mr. Reed, a first year teacher from Chicago, wrote a rap song for his 4th grade students, and recorded a music video to go along with it! The song and video emphasize the reality that hard work is a must, but that school and learning can certainly be fun!

People say kids don't read enough books these days, but one young pupil at T.S. Cooley Elementary Magnet School in Lake Charles, Los Angeles, would beg to differ. Over the course of the past school year, five-year-old Sophia Moss read through nearly the entire kindergarten and first-grade sections of her school's library. According to the local news report, her father Carl helped her check out five books a week this fall, which eventually grew to more than 20 books per week. In addition to her passion for reading, Sophia has already begun writing her first book, a story about a superhero turtle titled "Sophia's Pet."
