Wayback Wednesday: 2004 - Class Photos

Today is school picture day! 

 Harriet tries to convince Ian to blow that silly ducky off her head.

When Harriet and "the ducky" show up to take our pictures, you can bet that the children are well-dressed, the snack is no-mess, and the staff is slightly stressed - for two whole days. Sometimes there are tears and pouty faces, but never in front of the children :)

These teachers from 2004 look pretty happy. Enjoy this week's Wayback Wednesday photos from 2004.

Wow... I'm in one of these pictures! I think I was about four or five... I'm in high school now. So great to see that MSGL is still up and running and giving kids the great education it gave me. I'm taking all honors classes and am three years ahead of my grade in math. I still remember the math facts flash cards and the cubes, rods, and beads for counting. Thanks to everyone for for giving me and other kids a great start! :D

It's great to hear from you, Ana Sofia! I remember you very well when you were in my class. I remember your sister, too. I'm glad to hear you are well and that you still enjoy math. It means so much to all of us here when our former students check in and tell us what they are doing. Please stay in touch and be sure to stop in and visit if you are ever in town.

Best wishes,

Great blog, Heather! This was my first year at MSGL. The little girl in the pink shirt is Angelina Spinola-Retamosa and the smiley guy in the navy shirt, I think, is Jerrick Mennen.

Thanks, Lena. Wow - you've been here almost a decade! That's nearly 10 years of smiling at the ducky.
