Another new school year meant more students, thankfully a lot less than last simyear.
Jasmine was doing a great job with her class, even though it was large.
She kept the children occupied with learning and exploring.
Henry had his hands full as well, especially keeping an eye on Udar and how he was coping with his mother's death. Udar remained quiet and his grades were not changing, but Henry noticed a difference in the young boy's artwork. He seemed to draw a lot more sad faces in his pictures.
Rosemarie's class was exploring the life cycle of plants. After reading about plants and seeing them in magazines,
the students had a chance to work in the school's garden with some hands on opportunities.
The most exciting bit of news was the Sports & Field Day.
All day the students would be outside, doing various activities from catch competitions,
to trying out an obstacle course that the local military donated for the day.
Some of the children were determined to do well on the course,
in spite of their physical limitations.
Then basketball player, Benjamin Endeavour, stopped by to lead a quick exercise class.
The children loved him and he enjoyed the experience as well.
