We are the Knights (that’s pronounced phonetically - cuh-nig-its - as of the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail) Who Say Cyclic, a group of High School students, all of whom attended 6thgrade at Challenger School. At Challenger, we each gained not only a respect of the English language but also the want to change the world. Our noble mission is to improve America, one step at a time – primarily by improving the U.S.’s tongue and correcting false ideas about how its government functions.

November Challenge

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!
I would like to propose putting off the quote war, in favor of something to celebrate this wonderful season. We all have a lot to be thankful for, and I was thinking a great way to celebrate our amazing lives would be to have a "Gratitude Shout Off". If you agree with me, let's post things we are grateful for, one at a time, as comments. For example, I would post "Red fall leaves" and "Green summer leaves" seperately. That way the comment counter counts how many things we are greatful for. We should be allowed to repeat each other's ideas. Let's see if we can get over 500!!!
