7-8

Sunday, September 6, 2015

'The readiness is all.'

The 7-8 space is ready for the imminent invasion. I would venture to say that it looks even better than it did last year. We have murals from the class of 2015; twenty flags; a new couch; a new project space; new toys and new fish in the aquarium; a PE alcove with basketballs, soccer balls, broomsticks, stomp rockets, snowshoes, and other essentials.

Best of all, we have a new Weather Report and a new Big Chart. Below is, loosely, what we can expect to accomplish between now and December. Anchors aweigh!
