Spring Semester - In the Books

24 kids and 10 interns and 12 adult facilitators

The picture above shows our awesome interns -- they were God - sent and I don't say that lightly.

It was a rowdier evening --A few things I learned --
 1. Groups - groups -- groups keep the evening saner
 2.  Even the big people like ice cream 
 3.  Kids LOVE Gak!!
 4.  Doing an art type project with 24 at once is crazy but they did love making a coupon book for their mommas
 5. The kids were touched by the letters from their interns.  Watching them open their envelopes with anticipation was touching.  Several of their Intern buddies had written their notes days ahead of time.
6. We're all ready to rest between semesters - to re-group- renew- plan and recycle our energy! LOL

Finishing Strong

As we wrap up our Spring Semester, our theme is "Finishing Strong".  We posed several challenges to our students and with the intern's help were able to help our KU students strive to give their best performance at the various physical contests.  We then discussed who it is that wants us to finish strong as we wrap up our school year.  Their college helpers organized a challenge run with plenty of cheers and bravos along the way.

The students were reminded that the kind of dedication and commitment that they have experienced with their TCC "Buddies" is what it takes to finish strong.
