April 29 – Boat, Maybe.

Each year in 10th grade, IB students spend 6 months on a personal growth project. We went up to school to check them out.

Projects ranged from planning a fundraising run to building an electric guitar with everything in between.

writing a science fiction novel
learning how to decorate a cake
rebuilding a Gran Torino
composing a piece of music
making a laser harp
pottery
building a propane generator
training a dog
training a horse
becoming an equestrian show rider
balancing mobiles

One student built a Suessian playhouse to be auctioned for charity that garnered the local newspaper’s attention.

This was my favorite. I get the impression from the title that this student learned a lot about himself.

April 7 – Fence

That’s right, it’s a fence.

I was waiting for the boys to finish track and was struck by the light and the rough texture of the schoolyard fence. I didn’t futz with the image in anything, except cropping out the office in the distance.

February 20 – Twister

I manned the Patriotic Twister game at the school winter carnival (and worked the kitchen).

I just snapped this before she toppled over forwards.

January 2 – Science Fair

Science Fair

Cole is working on his science fair board.

His title: Guess the Distance

His hypothesis:

I think that mid thirty-year olds will have the most accurate estimation because they have more experience estimating and their eyesight is still pretty good. I do not think gender will make a difference in estimation skills.

This is a teacher- approved project in the eighth grade.

Personal Commandments

See the big picture. (and get a shot of it!) Step up. Give back. Do something different. Make a lot of mistakes, but never the same ones twice. Be ridiculously happy. Action, not reaction. learn, laugh, love.

Haba na haba, hujaza kibaba.

Be the Change!
