Pumping Up!

As we wrapped another glorious spring week, our first graders presented an DSCF3979energetic and creative program called SQUIRM!  Dressed as critters that make us squirm in life (bats, worms, snakes, and spiders), they taught us how squirmy creatures are good for our environment.  Each song explained how the DSCF3971particular critter’s existence plays an important role in the overall cycle of life on planet Earth.  Special thanks to our clever Fine Arts Team and the First Grade Teachers who spent numerous hours teaching and sharing important facts and trivia to bring the show to fruition…outstanding work!

Our learners also enJOYed an enthusiastic, motivational presentation presented by Mr. Keith Davis and Mr. Clarence Lee.  Both are former NFL players devoting their lives to encouraging and inspiring others to achieve their personal best everyday.  IMG_0031Mr. Davis previously spent time with our LME staff back in August when we partnered with T.E. Baxter staff while sharing our staff book study Training Camp with each other.  Mr. Davis has a magical way when he speaks by engaging each child in a meaningful way while literally “pumping up” the energy of the entire space.  Thanks, Mr. Davis and Mr. Lee, for sharing your time and talents with our learning community again this year!  Here’s hoping you get pumped up too!
