"I am Middletown"--Thomas Reed


"I am Middletown"

Welcome to our regular personality profile, which gives people in the Middletown school district a chance to meet and learn about their students. The answers to these questions create a mini-profile of their lives.

Meet Thomas Reed, a Presidential Park Elementary School fifth-grader.

His three favorite TV show: "'SpongeBob SquarePants,' 'Gravity Falls' and 'The Loud House.'"

If he had $1 million: "I would buy a house, pay to go to college, get a car and have a nice vacation. Anything I had left I would give to those who needed it."

His favorite part of school: "Lunch and recess because it makes me able to take a break for 30-45 minutes and relax. I'm glad we get to have a break during the school day."

If he were President: "I would make a lot of people help with the littering and make them clean up places. I would also help them clean up. I would help the poor and give them money and a job. I would try very hard to make a lot of people's lives better. I would also ban bow ties, because they are so uncomfortable."

The world's biggest problem: "Pollution. It is making the air really bad, so it's hard to breathe when it is polluted. I hope and will try to make places less polluted so we can have a safe and healthy environment."

Three famous people he would invite to dinner: "Barack Obama, Bruno Mars and Gordon Ramsay."

His ideal meal: "Spaghetti and meatballs, because when my Mom makes them, they are so good - especially the meatballs."

His three favorite movies: "'Sing,' the 'SpongeBob SquarePants 2' movie and 'Kung Fu Panda 2.'"

His ideal day: "When we went to the Castle. It was so much fun. We went on go karts, played mini-golf and the arcade. It was amazing and I would love to go again."

Three places she wants to visit: "Canada, because I want to see Niagara Falls, California and Japan.'"

In 15 years he'll be: "I will be attending Harvard and getting my Master's Degree in law."
