Video of the Day: May 28, 2015–BE THE CHANGE!!

I wasn’t even sure how to title this post, because it’s really not about me or even about the kids in Rm. 202.  It’s from May 28, for sure, but is more focused on the AMAZING work of Mrs. Puzzo and her 4th graders in Rm. 206.  They have worked pretty much the whole year with making a change in our school, our community, our world at large, after learning about social injustice.  The story is much longer than can be told here, but after reading A Friendship for Today (which actually took place in our school!), and learning more about situations closer to home (i.e. Ferguson), Rm. 206 kids wanted to do something.

I’m attaching the video they made (along with help from StLTV), as well as an invitation to you to help these friends be the change–as well as you!

First check out the video:

You can also check out what’s going on with this story on Facebook and Twitter. Get involved and please share this post with others!  Excited to see what happens when we all work together to be the change!

Pictures of the Day: May 27, 2015–FIELD DAY!!

This one is probably best described with a slide show.  The day was so full of fun and activities that I took lots and lots of pictures.  We had a great time moving and grooving with our Learning Buddies.  Even though it was raining, Mrs. Morgan and Mrs. Manees planned an AMAZING indoor field day for us all to enjoy.  THANK YOU!!!

Pictures of the Day: May 26, 2015 (a little late….)

Yes, I know it is June 22.  Just go with me here, ok? 🙂

There was only one (ok, well, two) pictures that we could have chosen to celebrate this day.  And they had to involve this handsome fella:

Our dear friend Diego had been gone from us for a while, and this was his first day back. We were over the moon to see him again before summer break started!!

See? Us over the moon that our friend came home. 🙂 (And ok, maybe we were a little excited that there were only 3 days left until summer break…)
