An exuberant day
Exuberance describes this day! The excitement has been building all week and finally this morning arrived. At assembly pre schoolers performed, K-1's danced in African garb, and 4-5's shared their moving and funny immigrant stories. We sang Lean On Me, the baton was passed to the new Fun Fact team, tears were shed, and laughs were shared.
Afterward were shows of work in K-1 and 2-3 with a blacksmith shop and wigwam, a beaver being dressed by the audience, demonstrations of butter making (and eating), an African safari and village marketplace. There was a picnic with ethnic food and a bowl of Three Sisters salad. Buddies shared a tasty dessert and lots of time together at recess. At the graduation singing rehearsal everyone sounded beautiful.
Next week brings field day, a Pre K picnic, and graduation. How did the year rush by? Why does time passing seem so surprising?
