Very Important Pupil

Owen had the pleasure of being VIP at school this month. We made a poster collage of his favorite things and he did a presentation in class about it. He also got to wear the special VIP vest, have a special song sung about him, and be line leader, paper towel monitor, etc. throughout the day. Here are some pics of him with his poster and a link to youtube to watch his presentation.



Hooray! It's my turn to be VIP! Each child gets a turn to be VIP for a week. Sadly, due to a bad cold, Owen only went to school for one day during his VIP week.
