Fun learning

I love seeing how our teachers interact with the kids - caring for each student and his or her progress, with big doses of fun. And they are so proud of their students. Rose said to me, "I can't wait until you read the Native American Legends the 4-5's wrote! They are amazing!"

Assembly this morning was a great example of the students taking responsibility. The 8th graders run things and music teacher George plays guitar. Today's features were "Quote of the week," "DeZara's Fun Facts," "The Garbage and Recycling Report," a humorous skit, and rousing choruses of "You are my Sunshine" and "Yellow Submarine."

Breaking news from Planet Parker: We just received the check for $1,445 from General William Mayer Foundation for a Pedal-a-Watt! Kids will pedal a bike to power lights or a radio; even a computer. Definitely a fun way to learn.
