The morning was a blast! Not only did the students show up in full force at such an early time, but they exhibited such great school spirit and pride. Everyone (including teachers) who showed up early received a free t-shirt and got a free pancake breakfast from Chris Cake's. (Who doesn't love free stuff?) Student Council planned such a fun morning, full of Minute-to-Win-It-like games and contests. I competed versus some students (and tied for the win) in trying to shoot a pyramid of cups over with a nerf dart gun. :) The teachers tried to pull off a dance flash mob to "Jump on It", but the kids took it upon themselves to come to the gym floor and dance with us, so it didn't work as planned. The news lady interviewed multiple extracurricular activities from our school, each which represented the Jags in such a positive way.
It truly was a morning I won't forget for awhile. Probably one of my best experiences since starting with the district five years ago. Go Jags!
Here are some photos I snapped with my cell phone.
