Rowan Ball is a fifth-grade student in Mrs. Johansen’s class. Her favorite thing about school is that she gets to hang with her friends. They often try to switch personalities and imitate each other, which can turn out really funny. ELA with Ms. Lewis is her favorite class because she gets to read. Rowan’s favorite genre is fantasy. “The Land of Stories” is a series that she would highly recommend to everyone. When not at school, Rowan plays with her dog and bunny while listening to Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing on Rainbows; she also shoots her bow and arrow (but not toward the bunny). On March 26, Rowan was crowned at the Assembly of God Church. She took many tests about the Bible and completed nine steps about the Bible. Rowan plays softball in the spring. Rowan lives with her mom, Corey, and her dad, Bob. She says that she is a hard worker and interested in her classes. Her teachers nominated her because she tries very hard, she is kind and helpful with her classmates and she adds a great deal to class conversations.
