Indian Day

Today was Indian Day.  You can read about the whole ceremony here.  Although I have attended 6 Indian Day ceremonies as a teacher, today I was a proud parent. 

Jack was selected as one of the Cradleboard Dancers.  His partner is his best friend, Caroline. 

After Jack did his dance, I went back to being a teacher.  My students looked so pretty and handsome today.

Fourth-graders doing the Hoop Dance.  I'm so proud of all of them.  They did a great job.

Every year, the ceremony is dedicated to a teacher who has shown exceptional service.  This year, the ceremony was dedicated to four teachers/aides who are retiring.  Between the four of them, they have........wait for it........124 years of service!  I'm happy for the four of them, but what a loss for our school.  Such dedication.
