Returning from a staff meeting which included discussion of our upcoming Year End Show, I found this charming handmade envelope on my desk.
Who is 'lucky 5'? My first guess was that it was a group of second graders who had invited me to listen to their band in the Performing Arts studio. I enjoyed their music and suggested that they might perform a number on stage at the show. As the school's Performing Arts Coordinator and producer of shows, it would be easy for me to find a place for them in the program. All they needed was a name...
And there it is: The power of asking. The power of action. On my class action board, this belong in the category of 'Conversing'.
However, it got better. They also included a beautiful promotional poster! Well that sealed the deal.
One can only imagine the inspired and authentic collaboration that went into this. It is packed with language, visual arts, and design applications. It is also an ideal artifact of social and emotional learning.
Needless to say, Lucky 5 will perform their single, Bye Bye, at our Year End Show.
