Tales Well Told

By Hanne Denney — December 26, 2006 1 min read

Just a quick note to tell you that The Arundel Tales presentation went well. The students practiced their stories with each other, made final revisions, and then presented them aloud. They mostly read from their papers, but they read competently with their partners. They applauded each other. They ate lots of food. I smiled through the whole thing.

We had visitors, including our Principal. Mrs. Stratton knows these students well, having observed many of their classes, band concerts and football games. She was so impressed she gave a school-wide thank you to the students on the morning announcements. I was so proud of them, I had to sit down and write each student a card. I mailed them yesterday. I hope the students will show their parents their finished booklet and my card.

A gift for me. It was a wonderful hour – a tale worth telling.
