You are an awesome group! What a year we have had! It was so cool watching all of you put your ideas together for our end-of-the-year project. The room was humming! Then the illustrations were so delightful! The final product will be a treat to see! The best part is that you will be helping other school bloggers.
Another thing I wanted to share with you is how many of you exhibit those great character traits that your principal has been blogging about all year. Like fairness, consideration, compassion, courage, self-respect, respect for others, initiative and that's just naming a few.
I have to get back to your submissions from today and start putting it all together for next week.
One last item, as I walked into school this morning I saw some awesome pictures about the top stories of 2004-2005. Many of you were in those write-ups so I thought I'd post a few here for others to see.
Alejandra has this artwork selected to be in the Georgia Art Education Association Capital Art Exhibit. This is a statewide art show which showcases artwork of students K-12. Alejandra traveled to Atlanta in Fevruary for Youth Art Month. She met with legislators who were impressed with her art talent (and her nice manners, too!) Way to go!
Yessenia's poems were submitted for publication in the 2005 edition of the Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans. Wow!
