Here are a couple of our rough drafts of our Changemaker Poems. We are going to publish them all to make Volume Two of our THOUGHTS MAGAZINE.


This one gets it! Bored games over video games for life!

Despite the cold and rain, we had a ton of fun! Huge shout out to Jack’s mom, Lilliana’s grandma, and Lee’s mom for helping out!

We will be going on our field trip to the Austin Nature and Science Center tomorrow (Wednesday, February 21st) rain or shine! Make sure students are dressed appropriately for the weather. We will be eating lunch on campus so there’s no need for a special lunch arrangements to be made. Parents, you are welcome to meet us there (2389 Stratford Drive) at 9:20am. We will be finished at the Austin Nature and Science Center at 11am. 

On Friday we celebrated Chinese New Year by decorating the class in lanterns. They turned out amazing!

Lee’s mom stopped by Friday morning and had lots of laughs with the class. We now know the quickest way to make the class burst out laughing is to read a book with underpants in the title. So good. 

Lilliana took first place in our candy heart stacking event!

We wrote Valentine’s letters to family and friends.

So much icing. So many sprinkles. 

In the end we relaxed, passed out our Valentine’s and enjoyed the comedy styles of Charlie Brown. 

Bonus! The back part of each student’s hat has their Mardi Gras nickname using a random nickname generator. Mine was Mambo Jambayala.

We were able to update our design using some artwork by Max in our class! Every first grader in all three classes gave the updated design two thumbs up! Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
