Surprise! Surprise!

Our morning started off like every other.  We were working and reading and learning to use a new computer application when Ms. Lundell (our principal) showed up at our door to say we had some very special guests to see us.  It's a good thing our classroom was clean because the District Assistant Superintendent, Mr. Mark Liguori and our School District Board of Trustees Board Chair, Mr. David Colburn stopped by to hear about The Milk Revolution.  We shared our blog, MooTV episodes and the progress we've made since Mr. Liguori's last visit.  After we presented everything, Mr. Colburn asked our class lots of questions about everything we've learned about health and wellness.  Mrs. Swelander was very impressed with how eloquent and factual students were with their answers even though they'd had no time to prepare.
Edmonton Public Schools Assistant Superintendent Mr. Mark Liguori (left) and District Board of Trustees Chair Mr. David Colburn couldn't leave our classroom without taking a picture with our milk carton.
Mr. Colburn liked our presentation so much that he said he wants to help us spread the word throughout our school district.  We are hoping this means we will be invited to present to the Board of Trustees.  We are so happy that adults are listening to our message and realizing how important this is.

Now, for the second surprise... Mrs. Swelander sent a very extra special permission form home with us today (that parents need to return by June 3 please) so we can record a important video clip.  We're not going to tell you what it's for yet, but it is going to be FANTASTIC!  Maybe you can guess by leaving us a comment below.

We also want to thank everyone who has visited our blog and MooTV over the past few days.  We were waiting to hit 15 000 visits so we could celebrate, but we missed it in all the excitement of our guest visits.  We'll celebrate at 20 000.  We love to read all the comments from all the people around the world.  Please leave us a comment or ask a question because it keeps us on our toes.
