So, yes, I realize it's February. And, yes, I realize that I'm blogging about Veterans Day which was way back when in November. One of Student Council's jobs is to help decorate/plan the Veterans Day Assembly. Unless you have a need to ever make patriotic decorations of your own, this blog post probably won't be of interest to you. But, next November, when I'm trying to remember how we did a certain thing, I'll be back here looking at it.
One of my super artsy students painted this beautiful banner to hang on the wall for our assembly.
I had nothing to do with this paper link flag, but I thought it was a really cute idea!
My main job was overseeing the creation of a balloon flag. One of my coworkers had her son construct a pvc frame to build the flag on.
I recruited my first hour freshmen Algebra 1 class to help me blow up the balloons. To say this was chaotic would be a huge understatement. I certainly didn't have the time, motivation, or lung power to blow up all of the balloons by myself though. That would be CRAZY.
I'm pretty sure the kids helping me might have popped just as many balloons as made it on the final display.
If you look closely at the bottom row, you can see that we actually ended up being short one red balloon. Oops...
And, I guess this post isn't complete without a picture of me in my Veteran's Day outfit. It's not everyday you can pull off looking like the American flag...
