Eric Mass, a 5th grade student in Mrs. Palilonis’ class recently won 2nd place among all 5th grade PEN students in Central Bucks for his witty editorial cartoon. Eric’s cartoon shows an enormous elephant, a symbol for the Republican Party, who about to sit in and possibly crush a seat in the US Senate which was formerly occupied by a donkey, which symbolizes the democratic party. The elephant is asking the donkey, “Is anyone sitting here?” the donkey replies, “Not anymore!” Central Bucks 5th and 6th grade students studied Editorial Cartooning during the first semester of school. Eric created his cartoon to illustrate his opinion of the November mid-term elections. Eric’s prize is a $10 gift card to Jules Pizza. Two Groveland sixth graders, Carina Sun and James Baker each received an honorable mention for their editorial cartoons. Congratulations Eric, Carina and James, way to represent the Great Grizzles!
