First, I am SO proud of all of you! After getting back from OAC yesterday, I could not stop smiling. You all behaved so well and were so brave when helping out the two classes. There definitely were some behaviors that you probably were not used to, but you did great. Kayleigh, I was super proud of you for putting up with the cursing from the student you were working with. What a weird experience, huh? Haley, great job fending off the hitting! And to all of the rest of you, you treated those students with the respect and love that they deserve. I hope that you enjoyed having that experience!
For your homework over break, I would like you to write a one or two paragraph response telling me about your experience. I want to know how being at OAC made you feel. Were you afraid? Were you happy? Did it make you sad? Did you conquer any fears?
Your other homework is to work on your final project menu. By now you all have chosen your assignments. Now get to work! You have three and a half weeks until they are due. It's very important that you get started and do not leave it all until the very end. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about your final project.
Finally, these past 15 weeks with you have been such a blessing. You all have gone beyond my expectations with this class. I never knew junior high students could be so mature, caring and responsible! What star students you are. It's hard to believe that we only have two weeks left.
Have a very Merry Christmas everyone
