Last Friday our school had a "Spirit Day". Everybody that brought $2.00 was allowed to wear a hat all day. The money went towards building a school in Kenya, Africa.

Two of the Moose Jaw Warriors came to Westmount and read a Brady, Brady book to the Grade 1s and Grade 2s. The children really enjoyed listening to the story. It was a thrill to have WHL hockey players in our class.

And what to my wondering eyes should I see... a Christmas present from our favourite Kiwi. Were we ever surprised! Mrs. Bright sent us a book called "A Pokeko in a Ponga Tree", a kiwi tree ornament, two tea towels and a lovely card. The children were excited!

Today we had a visit from two young men who play WHL (Western Hockey League)hockey. They were Travis brown and Kirk Johnson. Their team is called the Moose Jaw Warriors. Both Warriors play defense. While they were in our class they read a "Brady Brady" book about hockey. They also autographed book marks for everyone.

Movember is a fundraiser for prostate cancer. It is all about men growing facial hair throughout the month of November. I did not grow any facial hair even though I have good reason to. My father died from prostate cancer 20 years ago.

Friday, November 29th was 80's day at our school so I took full advantage of it. It's the first time I've ever had a mullet. The "stash" tied in with Movember and the sunglasses just finished off the look. As you can see, I had a lot of fun with it! In fact I like to say "I rocked the mullet!

Grade one and two are the years that children lose a lot of their baby teeth. You kind of get used to these toothless grins. There is hardly a day goes by that someone doesn't loose a tooth.

We harvested worms. Now we have two new colonies and I have sent them home with two very competent children. They are learning the art of vermicomposting.
