ELO – School Picnic


Today is the school picnic. There’s free food, music, dancing, a dunk tank and more.  Go get your free lunch and walk around exploring students groups, community businesses, and other opportunities to expand your life and mind.  Write a reflection about your experience and earn 5 ELOs for the grade book.  If you learn about Raku, share this information for a bonus…it must be clear that you learned about Raku from Ms. Clemens and her crew and didn’t merely look this technique up using a search.  Use this opportunity to learn something new and have a great time.  To take advantage of this opportunity, email your reflection to your instructor by Monday, September 26 – 9am.

Are you happy?


Once upon a time…

Team Concept

A team of students had four members called Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.

There was an important job to be done.

Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.  Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody’s job.

Everybody thought Anybody could do it but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it.

It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

Do you have nothing to say? Nnnnnnneeenaaaahhhh.
