It was a fun evening and I'm thankful for all of our family that was able to come (not that I guilted anyone into it! ha!)
Because the CC program was designed with the upper levels first we began our presentation with our oldest students & ended with the youngest. Part of that idea for our showcase was so that the younger kids would be captivated watching the older kids & not get too antsy - it seemed to work.
My class & Addison's class combined to act out the purchase of Louisiana. The best part is that I had to go onstage with our kids to help direct them & while we were up there they all got stage fright & didn't sing their history sentence. And, because I was leading them, I was the one who had the pleasure of singing ALL BY MYSELF for the crowd of 200 while directing the kids onstage. Awesome.
The Foundations/Essentials program ended by reciting the preamble to the Constitution together and the Bill of rights, presentation of the memory masters (who recited the history timeline) & then we all sang both of our orchestra songs.
Two of our other challenge classes also presented but none of our Challenge II class (10th grade) was there because they were all at Debate Regionals! (Just earlier in the week our Challenge B [8th grade] were mock trial champions!)
