We are members of a public charter school. As other members know there are a number of benefits going through a charter i.e. activities, funds, help from a credential teacher, etc. Obviously, with benefits comes drawbacks. One of those drawbacks, is having to state guidelines (i.e. the rules. I knew teaching the kids to follow the rules would come in handy one day) all of the guidelines not just the ones you like (sigh). This is being said because one of the afore mentioned "rules" is accomplishing Fine Arts. Now I am not a huge fan of the Arts. (Gasp) How dare I day such a thing? Now let me clarify before I start getting hate mail :), I am not against them in any way I just believe the Arts are for enjoyment and should not be a requirement. Since they are, does this qualify?
Don't mind the fact that he looks like he is in pain. He was really quite excited about his "volcano." He did have help from some very imaginative friends. (Yes, they were girls.) The boys talked about how the volcano was going to erupt and kill a bunch of people the girls decorated the volcano to make it look "pretty." Now why a volcano is supposed to look pretty is beyond me but it did make it look like something besides just a lump of dirt! If I only had the baking soda in the house, I could have shown them how the volcano could have erupted and turn it into a science project. Now that would have been fun!!
