At Town Meeting on Saturday, the town voted overwhelmingly to change the name of our school to the Ashley Bryan School! We are all so filled with joy about the change.
|This afternoon we worked on a special surprise for Ashley.|
|We painted beautiful signs for our school that included some of our favorite quotes from his books and his favorite poems. My People! Still Got it! Uh-Huh! Beautiful Blackbird!|
|Then Jim and Henry worked on putting our new signs up on the school! It was done just in time for our guest of honor!|
|He loved the new signs!|
|Then Ashley led us all in a choral chanting of "My People" by Langston Hughes!|
|And while we were enjoying ginger bread and orange soda, Ashley performed another poem, "Things" by Eloise Greenfield. Still got it!|
|We love our new school!|
