What else would this teacher be doing during his summer break...but thinking about his FORMER 2nd grade kiddos!? Just typing that word "former" almost brought tears to my eyes! I MISS YOU GUYS!!! I hope you're all having an amazing summer in the sun!
I handed my iPhone over to a few responsible 2nd graders at the beginning of the school-wide "Teachers vs 5th graders" kickball game and this is what I got. NOT INCLUDED are the slow-mo clips and other videos! Great memories!
I want to use this opportunity to say a BIG THANK YOU to all the parents who've helped out in the classroom this year! We've had incredible parties with great food (donated by all our great T-T'T families), exciting games, and time to laugh with our friends! We've had a fun year! Just last week we wrapped it all up with an educational and fun filled field trip to Indian Springs and the Troy Union Annual Field Day! Take a walk down memory lane with pictures and videos!

Just like that, the 1st biennial (maybe) Troy Union Cardboard Challenge has come and gone. The memories, however, will last forever! Today was definitely an exciting one (for students, teachers, and parents alike!). It was a great day to be a child with an imagination and a love for creation! With their creative minds, boxes and duct tape turned into a real life arcade with tickets pouring out from cut out circles and smiles and laughter to be heard around the building. Teachers beamed with smiles from ear-to-ear at the synergy, the perseverance, and the joy these finished products bought to each of their children. Parents came in to help cut or they watched from their phones on their lunch break...but either way, I know they were just as proud as us! Thank you, Mr. Cottone for bringing this challenge to both our students and our staff. Thank you to the one and only Caine who's the original Cardboard Arcade genius for inspiring the WORLD to follow in your footsteps! Thank you to Mrs. Bellhorn's class who came in and showered us with compliments and praise and for inviting us in to their classroom to enjoy their awesomeness! And, thank you to all the families who donated all the cardboard, the duct tape, and the time to make today possible! Our kiddos may be building pinball machines today...but they'll be building our future very soon. Let's just hope it's not out of cardboard! :)
