Dear Journal,

Patrol of the Month

On Wednesday the 3rd I was awarded patrol of the month.  They pick 4 to 5 of the 50 safety patrols who they thought did a great job the prior month and they get a gold badge to wear for the next month.   

Jack and the Beanstalk

On Thursday the 4th, the gifted class went to see a version of the play "Jack and the Beanstalk".  This version was set in Mexico and the gifted teacher thought it was very creative.  Some parts were funny.  It was great.  

Talent Show Auditions

Friday the 5th was the school talent show audition.  Me, Jessica, and Katie decided to do a routine for the talent show.  We all can do gymnastics so that is what we decided to do.  We made up a routine and had to audition.  The show is next month. 

Science Center Movie

On Saturday the 6th we went with grandma, grandpa, and great grandma Essie to the science center Imax movie theater to see the movie "Journey of Man".  It was good.  


Annual Garage Sale

On Saturday the 13th grandma and nana came up for the annual Waterford Lakes garage sale.  I mostly sat in the car and read my book.  Then after lunch I stayed home while they went back out.  Nana got a carload of stuff to sell at her garage sales.  


Anne Frank Play

On Monday the 22nd the 5th grade went to see the play "The Diary of Anne Frank" at the Tupperware civic theater.  I had just read the book last month.  We saw the play to go along with our social studies lesson.  We were learning about World War II.  The play was pretty good.   


On the weekend of the 27th, we went camping with James and Jody at Hillsborough River State Park.  We went fishing, but I didn't catch anything.  Then we went swimming for a little while.  We went canoeing and the next day we went on a hike.

D.A.R.E. Graduation

On Monday the 29th, I graduated from D.A.R.E.  D.A.R.E. stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education.  Deputy Ciambriello taught us about drugs, violence, gangs, and peer pressure.  To graduate we had to write an essay about what we learned and how it will help us in the future.
