When Heather was in 8th grade (2012-13), I volunteered to manage and organize the entire school’s outdoor ed experience; the first night was 8th grade leadership event; I work with them on their promotion ceremony (for 15 weeks) and their legacy project, a where they made hand-blown glass orbs to display in the classrooms. I chaperoned field trips, took their class pictures and we hosted the end of the year “water” party (balloons, hot tub) in our backyard. Some friends even stay over the night.
I received beautiful thank you notes from the students. I have been enjoying re-reading them, one at a time, each day during the month of February (2015). I want to do something special with them, but for now, I am scanning them and posting them on the blog.
