UE Update: Famous Figures visit us, the cupcake phenomenon, and the show-offs!

We had some spectacular famous figures from history visit us this past Tuesday morning.  Wow, never was there a day when Albert Einstein shared space with Emily Dickinson, Joan of Arc, Christopher Columbus, Sylvester Stallone… truly, 25 of the greats!  We learned how to do a Biography in the last couple of weeks, researched our famous people, and then dressed up as them, presenting our information as if we were statues that came alive in our Interactive Wax Museum!  It was both fun and stressful to present to people who came to visit, and our fellow students too.  Joe, Carrie, and Kristina said that the costumes and presentations were top notch, this year!  Thanks so much for helping us at home, too.

Awhile ago, a group of students on the Celebrations Committee had a meeting and started some planning about our traditional Halloween Potluck.  Everyone brought lots of food (cupcakes) and we ate lots of creepy things (cupcakes) and even had enough left over to offer around to the teachers in the school (cupcakes).  Ummm, if you didn’t already guess, we had lots of cupcakes!  They were DELICIOUS!  Aaaaand, there are never too many cupcakes.  Seriously! Thanks for helping us get the potluck things ready at home, we know it was such a busy week with everything happening!  We say it was very worth it.

Next week we are hoping to show you around and let you see what we have been doing here at school these last couple of months!  Won’t you please come in on Wednesday after school so we can show off a little?  Thanks for making the time.  Also, if Wednesday isn’t a great day, feel free to pop in any day with your student to see their work (as long as it’s not a yoga day!)
