St. Gregory’s fourth grader Avery Baker, daughter of Matt and Jill Baker, was recently published in a Scholastic News magazine for her assessment on whether kids should be on Facebook or not. Baker responded that kids should not be on Facebook since there are so many bad people online looking to steal personal information and that people don’t always post things that are appropriate for kids. Her viewpoint, along with her picture, appeared in the February 10 edition of the magazine to the surprise of her fellow students.
“My mom told me a while before it published that my submission was accepted,” Baker said. “A few of my friends turn right to the debate portion of the magazine and after they had read it, they kept looking at me and then the picture trying to figure out if it was me. After everyone kind of saw it, they started laughing because they had no clue what was going on. It was funny.”
