Please note that Amelia, on the front page in an article about a high school demonstration, is in 9th grade…not 8th.  What’s up The Signal?

VALENCIA ICU WALKED FOR UGANDA!

Uganda Walk VHS 2006

The ICU club was sooo awesome yesterday!  I wish you all could have been there to see them make an impact on the students of Valencia.  We started in Jennene’s room, got organized with our neon green signs, our matching neon green shirts, and our matching green eager spirits!  Then we headed out into the jungle of highschoolers to bring awareness to Uganda and the Dippin’ Dots fundraiser today!    IT WAS AWESOME!!!!It seemed that the student body didn’t know whether to laugh or cheer, but either way EVERYONE knows that green is for ICU and that Dippin’ Dots is coming to town…mission accomplished!  Even the principal and some of the other administrators were out watching us! 

Much thanks to Adam Powell who joined us and took zillions of pictures…CLICK HERE to see them.  AND, check The Signal for the article that’s coming-they were at the walk too!

TO BE A JUNIOR HIGH GIRL

The following is a verbatim note that I confiscated from a 7th grade girl while the whole class was supposed to be reading a paragrpah on the board.  Note:  already you see the red flag…she’s writing, the whole class reading on board…inconspicuous?  No.

“Chocolate chips,
hi mine arms hurts so much.  ugh its so much pain. Ya heather made a group we have curve a heart on our hands to be in the group”  note confiscated.
Translation:
Dear Chocolate Chips
Hi.  My arms hurt so much, ugh, it’s so much pain.  Ya, Heather created a group and we have to carve a heart on our hand for membership.”

She actually came up to me after class and asked for her note back.  ????
Go carve a heart on your hand, kid.  And, say hi to chocolate chips for me while you’re out there!

LAST WEEK: STUDENTS, BLACK BOX, CELTIC LIFE, ICU, etc

If I had a personal assistant this blog would be updated far more. Since I don’t, here’s a sloppy montage of the last 2 week’s highlights (give or take), once again, verifying that I really do have a great life, full of diversity and exposure.

OK,  high lights…
