Today was a day to work on the weekend homily and take care of letters and paperwork. I did stop in at the Speyer home (6th – 8th grade boys). They had been hiking in the chalk hills on the North end of campus. Chance came across some deer antlers he wanted to show me. Chance plans to file down part of the antlers and use them on his regalia, since he is a traditional dancer. The students are proud when they can add to or help create their own regalia.
I walked by the William Home (4th – 5th grade girls) , and saw them sitting on the living room floor trimming soup labels and bagging them into bundles of 500. Each of the homes and classrooms are saving up labels to earn equipment, and every student pitches in to help make that possible. They also put the box tops for education that are sent in to good use. While they students get plenty of athletic activity over the weekend, sometimes it’s nice to have some quieter times for those kinds of activities.
