Bryan Adams Feeder Pattern Updates

T'was the Week Before...
Courtesy of Reilly Elementary -
T'was the week before Christmas at the elementary school
And all the weary staff were losing their cool!
Santa searched for the ones that gave their time and hearts
he wanted to thank them but how could he start?
So many hours, they worked without fuss
They worked for the children; they all gave so much.
What could he do to show them their worth;
The difference they made with all their hard work.
"I know" Santa said, "I'll open their eyes.
"They'll see clearly the impact they have on small lives.
They'll see smiles on faces that their work puts there;
They'll see kindness in children taught the lesson to care."
"They'll hear laughter from families that share in their days
They'll get hugs that without them would just go away."
"And at night when they rest, they'll sleep soundly and know
Their teaching and caring hearts keep the children aglow."
Mock Interviews at Bryan Adams
Last week, Bryan Adams had over thirty guests from the community help with the AVID Mock Interviews in the Library. The 100+ AVID students represented well and received so many compliments on their overall attitudes, preparedness, attire, and great showmanship.
Attached you will find a few pictures from the event. We could not have done it without the adults from the community who came to volunteer hours of their time. They offered amazing feedback to the students and treated it as if they were in a real interview. The students were all so excited and I loved seeing the sense of accomplishment in their eyes and hearing how great they did after each interview.
Thank you so much to Laterica White in CIS for helping set the entire thing up! Also, many thanks to the AMAZING interviewers! Be proud of our students, because they represented Bryan Adams with pride!
