Only two more days left with our students, so today we took the afternoon to celebrate the 8th grade class as they prepare to move to high school. The school ordered sandwiches from a local restaurant, and then we had a small awards presentation. As tradition goes, every year two members of the class hand out funny and memorable awards to each student. The awards are basically supposed to represent one specific thing that each person will be remembered for. Some examples include best girl/boy football play, prettiest eyes, biggest flirt, class clown, most fashionable, most organized, etc. I enjoyed just spending the afternoon hanging out with the kids and seeing them recognize the things they appreciate about one another.
Our principal talking to the students about the last days of 8th grade and the awards.
Yes, even the teachers got awards and this is mine! "Wannabe future Mrs. Mauer" Haha! I'm not quite sure what they mean by "wannabe" since I think "Future Mrs. Mauer" would be quite fitting. In summary, some of them might not know algebra as well as I want, but they sure know a heck of a lot more about the Minnesota Twins than they did nine months ago. Education comes in all forms. ;)
