A Sweet School!
My school surprised me with an assembly today to wish me speedy recovery from my breast cancer surgeries. My favorite group of all time, the California Kids, sang me a song they had practiced. Then a student representative from each grade level said some words about their well wishes for me. The third graders presented, "The Top Five Things We Will Miss About Mrs. Steffes" and a fifth grader, Monica, read me a poem she wrote. Then six pink balloons were released in my honor (in the gym because we are environmentally conscious!). Kids hugged on me and teachers wished me well. It was a total surprise and I loved it!
