It’s getting chillier here in the R.O.K. Halloween preparations are under way at POLY. My school usually puts on a big haunted house/Halloween celebration each year. It’s actually one of the main reasons why I signed on as a teacher haha. I’m all about creating positive memories for these kids. Yes, we are “just another after-school activity” to them. But hey, while we’re at it, we should do a good job and give them something to remember. I was somehow signed up to be the assistant for the one of the rooms in the haunted house. I have this idea… it’s going to take some work, but I think it’ll be fun.
We’ve also started our Christmas concert preparations. I really wanted to do Snow Miser but I had a hard time making a nice back-track for the kids to sing along to. So my two final choices are:
I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas
Holly Jolly Christmas
