The English committee at Faleasao Elementary hosted a 9/11 memorial assembly today. We had a banner competition and each class performed a song or poem. Afterward, we watched a few slide-shows about 9/11 and then had a balloon release (students wrote messages to or prayers for those affected by 9/11 and put them inside their balloons). It was probably the cutest thing ever (thank God we were not able to get a helium tank sent out here, so the balloons were not released over the ocean, as originally planned! yay!)
If you have Google+, you can click the hyperlink below for a video of my class performing the song we wrote (with a lot of help from the girl in the middle’s dad!)
Here’s the link.
I know. They’re adorable. We made those little flag hats for them to wear, too. Everyone loved their song and they went wild over Allyson’s sergeant routine. :) They had so much fun and I am super proud of them!
I’m trying to find a website where I can upload videos but everything is blocked. Wah. I’ll post it here if I ever figure out how to do it!
Oh! And I was on tv the other night! My neighbor, Jolla, yelled out her window to tell me to come watch; they aired my interview with the Dept of Ed guy! Wes was on, too! I looked for the video online but it appears that the local station here doesn’t have a website, haha.
