I wanted to take a minute to tell you about our End of the Year Party. Brett walked into the school and then the cafeteria where children were finishing lunch and all you could hear, I mean all you could hear, was screaming and clapping. I think it was a standing ovation! From there, it only got better :)
Brett began setting up and the children could barely contain themselves. We had to place those orange cones around him to create a barrier. Then, of course, the music, the line dancing, the singing, the smiling... And that was just the PTO. No, I'm kidding, the kids, teachers, support staff, we were all having a great time.
Brett played "Jai Ho" and made a fuss over the fifth graders who had been learning to perform the dance. He invited the fifth graders to the front of the audience and they all danced for the rest of the school. Then, he asked the fifth grade students to stay for more music after the younger students had returned to their classrooms... He really made them feel special.
I was sure to thank Brett, but, also wanted to let everyone know how great everything was.
