Our classroom door is always open to visitors. We love to share our learning with our families, community members, other teachers, and people from all over the world. Normally, we only have one or two visitors at once, but this time there may have been more adults in our classroom than there were students!
On Friday, The Minister of Education, George Abbott was in our school district to celebrate and sign School District 85’s Aboriginal Enhancement Agreement. After the signing, Minister Abbott was brought to our island to visit our little school.
Minister Abbott was accompanied by a number of people from the government and also by several members of our school district staff and some of our school board trustees as well.
Our guests joined us for a Skype call with our blogging buddies in California. It was great to connect with Mrs. Yollis and her students. We got to know them during the Our World, Our Stories project we were a part of earlier in the school year. Look for a separate post all about our Skype call in the next day or so.
After our Skype call, Kennedy and Sophie had a chance to interview Minister Abbott for a, What’s Up at AJ? special report. We hope you will find the interview as interesting as we did!
