Back in the preschool classroom:
- Race car driver
- Black cat
- Sock hop poodle skirt
- Supermans/Supermen and other superheroes
- Buckingham Palace guard
- Bumblebee, ladybug, and butterflies
- A "preeshus" peacock
- Thomas the Tank Engine
- Minnie Mouse
- Penelope, no not Odysseus' wife. Some character from a kid movie with striped pants.
The elementary students have to dress as "real people not necessarily alive" and be prepared to explain their person. There was a major paradigm shift this year. There are always ballerinas, pop stars, professional athletes, and kids who dress as their parents. We met Yuri Gagarin, poet Shel Silverstein, an OB/GYN, and "Soul Surfer" Bethany Hamilton*, but no Amelia Earhart. The Dalai Lama stopped by.
* Not related to surfer Laird Hamilton, just FYI.
