Yesterday was a crazy-fun and exhausting day. For the last few months, I have been planning a huge event at work for the 6th grade classrooms in Valdez. In short, this event encourages 6th graders to attend college, vocational and/or training schools, and seek out other awesome opportunities after they graduate from high school. To help encourage students, we invite them over to the school where they experience a ‘college day’ of their own. They attend college classes, meet students and professors, get a tour of student housing, and even partake in their very own graduation ceremony. It’s pretty awesome and the students LOVE it! As awesome as it is, it also takes a lot of planning on my part — and planning is half the fun! I also ordered lunch for the students, a graduation cake, and little red and blue grad caps — they were so cute! Aside from the day being overly exciting and wonderful, it was also exhausting! I drove home yesterday, craving a tasty beverage, a lovely bike ride, and later on, a good book.
:: All were mighty excellent!
Now that the event is over, I can relax and work on some final, very minor projects before bidding farewell to ol’ PWSCC. Only 6 days left!
Cheers to you, little PWSCC.
