So for October's Spirit Day,we went with "Mustache Day." To say it was a hit would be an understatement! Kids could wear a mustache from home, draw one on, or buy one from us (PAC) that morning. Well we totally ran out of our supply! So after some quick-thinking, I realized I had some sticky craft foam at home and so I zoomed home and Patty and I took turns cutting out mustaches and delivering them to students who wanted one. The ones we made weren't as cool as the "real" (fake) mustaches I had bought, but oh well. We brought in the most money we've ever done for a spirit day and so that was great. And I had lined us up with a great sponsor and so it was a successful spirit day.
Speaking of the awards assembly . . . Emmy received TWO awards. Each quarter there is a focus on one of the school's core standards (called SAILS - "Shows respect," "Acts Responsibly," etc.) Emmy's teacher gave Emmy the award in her class for "Shows respect." Then the librarian also awarded Emmy out of the whole 2nd-grade for "Shows respect." How cool.
