As prez of the Stream of Dreams board, my heart glows to get this sort of response:
The Stream of Dreams presentation was a hit with our Grade Eights. The speaker clearly knew her stuff and the kids drank it in. Overall, a fun experience and a great cause.
I really enjoyed having Susan, Louise, and Joan from Stream of Dreams come out to our school. They came very prepared to engage the students with their posters, stories, and models about protecting fish habitat and watersheds. This non-profit organization is doing amazing work and I hope they can share their important environmental message with children and adults everywhere.
"All drains lead to salmon habitat!" We got it! Thank you for your enthusiasm and for sharing your expertise with us. My Grade 7's thoroughly enjoyed it, and we appreciate your passion. Thanks for bringing our community on board this project.
The habitat connection was great for our grade 4's who will be studying this further during the year. They really enjoyed the maps of the neighborhood surrounding the school. However, their favourite part was putting their creative genius to work in painting the fish. Thank you for showing us how we can be wise stewards of creation.
I totally love these school-wide events. Aren't those just the greatest and most creative fish you've ever seen!?!?! The whole school did a fabulous job painting them and a special thanks to those parents and others who helped string the fish. It's good to know that when you say "All drains lead to"...the children all reply..."fish or salmon habitat." It was exciting to witness how enthusiastic the students were. I was renewed by how everyone used the gifts God has given them to praise and worship Him by doing their best work when they painted their fishes.
The people were really good. They really knew their stuff, and everything was so streamlined that my class was engaged the whole time. The fish look great and so does the fence now. Good work everyone involved.
Stream of Dreams staff and volunteers do amazing work. It's a privilege to work with them, even in a minor capacity.Posted by Paul at November 18, 2010 11:23 PM
