For this month’s “I was served” column, second grade students from Mrs. Brown’s class at Maple Ridge Elementary in Mapleton wrote down times when they were served by those around them. These are their responses:

Hailey: I was served by my sister when she made my bed and played with me and did my homework, and did my hair. She is so kind. I love her.

Riley: I was served when my friend helped me when I was playing and got hurt.

Maverick: I was served by my friend when he let me go to the store with him. We also played on the playground.

Paisley: I was served by my Dad and Mom when they bought me a bike when I was one year old with training wheels. Then when I was six, they bought me one without training wheels.

Megan: I was served by Margret when she got me a pack of wall balls. There were three wall balls for my birthday party. The wall balls were the color blue.

Nixon: I was served by my brother when he made pizza for me. It was pepperoni pizza. The cheese was the best part. It was so hot!

Lincoln: I was served by my friend when he played Minecraft, Legos and watched TV with me until 8:00 at night. I loved it.

Jasper: I was served by my grandma and grandpa when I was in a fire. When I was in a fire I had to evacuate. When I was evacuated, I saw a Blackhawk and other helicopters. Sometimes I could see the fire.

(no name): I was served by Lexie when she helped me when I crashed on my bike. I got a goose egg and a bloody nose and infection on my nose. Lexie was so nice that day. She walked me home and rode both of our bikes back home.

Harrison: I was served by my brother when he helped me feel better when my friends were being mean to me.

Lacey: I was served by my dad because he gave me a treat when I was done with gymnastics. I got served by my mom because she played school with me, and my family served me by being the best. I love my family!

Kash: I was served by my friend when I fell over and he helped me up.

Logan: I was served by Javier when he helped me back up. I was playing soccer and I fell down. Then he played with me.

(no name): I was served by my dad when he helped me ride my bike because I was getting too big for my last bike, and I was scared.

(no name): I was served by my brother when he helped me clean my room so I could play with my friends outside … When we were finished, I thanked him by helping him put his stuff away.

Ellie: I was served when my friend helped me make a dance. She did it so I could do a performance. She helped me so I didn’t have to work so hard. I am glad she helped me. (Brown is a Serve Daily contributor.)
