Thursday was our Spring Fun Night at our school. We decorated and decorated! We tried to make everything look like spring by using flowers, pinwheels, balloons, wooden grasshoppers. Spring writing, flowers, and butterflies decorated the walls.
Families were able to come and enjoy a night of food and carnival fun for free!! I think they really appreciated that! We had so many games, gave out popcorn, and lots of kids got their faces painted. Some were still wearing it the next day at school. :)
Teachers had carnival games and prizes for the kids in their classrooms. PAT had face painting (a big hit) and activities in the gym. I helped serve up a meal of grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, potato salad, chips, and cookies. It was truly a wonderful time of serving and visiting with the students and their families. Good times were had by all! And best of all, we were able to provide this for our community all for free!
And now for the honor part...I have had biggest (and totally unexpected) surprise! I received word the other day that my little blog had been chosen as one of the top 25 blogs for educators. I was speechless, humbled, excited, thrilled....I had to read the list a few times to be sure that my blog was truly listed there. One of the great things about this surprise is several of my friends also made this list. That just makes it more exciting when your friends get to share in the excitement with you! Be sure to go to Education World and check out the other wonderful blogs that were chosen along with mine.
