KIDS WEEKLY: JAXEN MOREIRA & JACKSON TONELLI

“A person’s a person, no matter how small.”   — Dr. Seuss

The Keys Weekly is proud to feature local middle-school students and their answers to some fun questions in our Kids Weekly segment. Instead of asking about their favorite teacher or school subject, we want to know what superpower they’d most like to have, their favorite YouTube channel and the hardest part about being a kid today. 

To have your fifth, sixth, seventh or eighth graders included, please contact Key West Editor Mandy Miles at [email protected] for the questionnaire and directions for photo submissions. 

The Keys Weekly thanks Sigsbee Charter School sixth grader Jackson Mitchell and teacher Jessica Forsythe for helping us compile these features each week.
