Today we started out by creating a team plan. We are getting down to the wire... crunch time. To begin, we generated a "To Do List". Again, we broke our teams into smaller groups with an assignment for everyone. Then, we rolled up our sleeves and went to work. There was much to accomplish and time was running out. One thing we have learned is that a job like this requires many, many refinements and we wanted our plans to be in the best they could be for presentations at the Planning and Zoning tomorrow.
By 10:45, we had worked pretty hard. It was time for a little comic relief! Brayden provided us with a quick demonstration of the Guacamole Song... You can see him singing and dancing along! A good ole belly laugh was just what the Dr. ordered. Some moments are simple unforgettable!! Thanks, Brayden!! Everyone plays an important role on a team!!!
About that time, Mrs. Welle came in and announced that EVERY ADMINISTRATOR IN THE DISTRICT was in the halls and might possibly be headed our way for a visit. We got back to work ..... REAL FAST!!!!!! Besides, we had presentations to write!
Sure enough..... . We had them at hello!!! Doesn't Mason look administrative?!?!
In all seriousness, we were so glad they came. We were proud to show them our work and to give them our Dime Store spiel. But mostly, we were honored that they cared so much to stop in check it all out!
By 1:30 (right on schedule) we were in the Conference Room for our first trial run presentations.
We were so grateful for an opportunity to work in a professional setting with state of the art tech equipment.
Our teams collaborated and gave each other constructive feedback so that we could help each other improve. Each of our teams had strengths and weaknesses. We shared our ideas so we could all be strong. In the end, it was clear that we had a lot more work to do. We left the Conference Room as our last bell of the day rang. Knowing our time was of the essence, we made a commitment to work on a plan that night for our next day's tasks. We had to be organized and clear about what had to be done. No time to waste. It had been a great day, but we were amazed at how much work it takes to plan a park. Tomorrow we will refine and polish yet again!
