Monumental Events

Tonight was the graduation and closing ceremony for the students of BBA. The theme was Canadian, and although the kids did a good job, I still remember the time the students of 2004-2005 did the same program--boy did they do a great job!

I'm going to use some of what they did in July in honor of Canada day, so I will just give a brief description.

There was Sir Sam Steele, a Royal North West Mountie, decked out in his regal uniform.

Lucy Maud Montgomery was there to tell us of the early years when she first began writing the beloved Anne of Green Gables books.

Josiah Hansen recounted a little bit of the struggle for freedom as a former slave in America.

Laura Secord described her role in the War of 1812.

Sir Wilfred Laurier, one of Canada's Prime Ministers, told of the time he spent in office.

Oh, and Big Bear told of his experience as an Indian Chief.

In addition to all of these soliloquies, there were seven students who told us something about Canada for each letter of the alphabet. There was a slide show picturing the different things the kids talked about. So much hard work was put into this night, and having just done a program of my own with my Kindergarten students, I feel the relief of the teachers as the night wound to a close. {Hopefully I can post some pictures soon!}

Well Done, Students! Hope you have a wonderful summer!
