Just for fun, Sandi and I invited our neighbors, Ron and Judy, over for dinner to celebrate the end of the school year. We tried some new recipes, beginning with a tomato-zucchini soup and open-faced sandwiches. For dessert, we all crowded into the kitchen to make crepes and ate them with a variety of delicious toppings. While the shape of the crepes might seem unusual (given the pans we had to work with), their taste left nothing to be desired. It was a wonderful evening of good food and laughter!

Here we are on the last day of school with our principal, Mr. Pitotti. Nineteen fifth graders ready to move up to sixth grade. While I can see how these students have grown and changed since the picture we took on the first day of school, the most exciting growth has been how much they've learned and how they've learned to work together. Only one student moved away this year and two students joined us mid-year...it's been a surprisingly stable year for a class at an international school. What's ahead? Trips to their home countries, days at the pool, soccer games at the park, and NO HOMEWORK!

The fifth grade class hosted a celebration of our poetry writing for parents on Friday afternoon. Students took part in a variety of fun poetry activities and each read aloud an original poem they had written. We ended our celebration with cake and cookies and time for the parents to mingle with the poets. What a joy to see the progress these students have made in their writing abilities this year!
