Last week started with a musical birthday surprise! Yasmin impressed us with her birthday outfit and a balloon that played the “birthday song.” The writer of this post was quite surprised to discover that balloons could be musical—it was a delightful way to start the week, and a bit of whimsical relief for Glass Knife staff, working hard up to the last minute before the final deadline:
On Monday we had Mrs. Talamantes talk to Seniors about what to pack for college, and Tuesday were honored to have Fr. Onesphore, head of Rulindo parish and schools, give a lunchtime Q&A with Seniors to chat a bit about Country Day’s partnership with the Rulindo School in Rwanda.
Senior Seminars continued throughout the week, and Ms. Melinson gave her annual talk about college research and libraries. She contacted each librarian of the Seniors’ chosen universities to get advice about making the transition to college research as smoothly as possible. That’s a lot of librarians! And…there were cookies. So many cookies.
We also had our final Book Club of the school year, and Ms. Melinson had summer reading book talks with the 7th Grade English classes. Friday we had career panels for Seniors, and below check out one of the special guests!
