GRIN helped the kids at Prince Elementary make Teacher Appreciation Cards today.
It was rarely this peaceful.
Imagine 60 third graders racing across the playground, yelling GRANNY!!!
They were followed by littler ones
and bigger ones
some of whom took to the ground because there was no room at the tables.
It was a unisex event -
everyone loves the teachers at Prince.
There were thoughtful notes
where the sentiment
It's true, her teacher is so(w) nice (nis).
Given that this is her second language, and her first year hearing it, I'm willing to let some things slide. Yes, spelling counts. In this instance, maybe, though,, not so much.
GRIN supplied markers
and foam stickers
Peeling the back off without damaging the butterfly required concentration
Friends worked side by side
often making two cards... one for each wonderful teacher.
Sometimes, it was Granny, herself, whose smile they were courting.
But mostly it was all about the teachers...
We can give it to her now!
It was 150 minutes of love and joy.
I wish you all could have been there with us.
