Tonight was Literacy Fair. Kids were showing off their school work to their families. This is the night we hold dear to celebrate all the everyday things we do at school. We all work very hard (darn it!), and we all want some recognition for it!! There were smiles and happy sounds bouncing off the walls.
I was stationed at the "Make-your-own-bookmark-parent-survey" table. The bookmarks were made from fat, colored craft sticks and googly eyes. It was so fun to watch the kids create. The survey is to help fulfill Title I compliance expectations. It was fun to watch parents participate. Faces were made by all.
It's like a family reunion, complete with a couple of crazy aunts and the uncle no one talks about.
