one by one the packages fell with a bang or soft landing. once the packages were opened they saw the results. andrew wrapped his egg in bubble wrap and cotton balls and weighted with beans. it didn't make it. only two of the eggs did. but everyone had fun.
then bobby and i went to sofia's class for her student led portfolio presentation. she showed us her class work, art and writing. she told us what she learned and why she thought it was important. i absolutely love this. the kids are so proud of everything they have accomplished over the school year and are eager to talk about their successes.
that evening jordan had his chapter presentation. chapter is where the students show off what they have learned during their middle school years and why they are ready to move on to the next chapter of their lives, high school.
friday there was an all school assembly. one of the teachers auctioned off a chance to turn him into a human sundae. the fourth grade class covered him in whipped cream, chocolate and caramel sauce, marshmallows, and sprinkles. they even topped him off with cherries. what a good sport he is.
monday was the school talent show. jordan had been thinking about what he was going to do since school started. over the last few months he spent a lot of time playing two foo fighter songs. he was the last act and he blew everyone away. the kids were amazed and the teachers were in awe that he has never had lessons. jordan was pretty happy with himself too.
tuesday the kids had class parties, color day and the annual faculty vs. 8th grade volleyball game.
we are so proud of all of them for a wonderful school year.
