Fall Field Trip: Day #2 (EVENING!)

After a full afternoon of activities we had yet another full agenda for the evening to attend to! (This may have been one of the most jam-packed-two-day field trips in TLC history, but it seemed to work!)


Before dinner we had the honor of having a few international high school students from Gould Academy come talk to our group about their home countries, all of which happened to be in Asia!

 

It was a perfect way to jump start our Asian Studies Unit which was beginning the following week. Each of the six students who came to talk were from a different country in Asia. It was so interesting to hear them talk about their home countries and how different they all are. 

 

There was a student from Japan, one from North Korea, one from Turkey, one from Persia, one from Vietnam, and one from China! Each of them spoke a little in their country's language and talked a bit about their country's geography and climate. Then our group got an opportunity to ask some questions that they were wondering about. One of my favorite questions was, "Why would you leave your country to come to MAINE!?"

It was a great experience for our kids to meet students from that part of the world and I think it made them more excited to jump into their social studies unit!

We thanked the Gould students for talking with us and then our group headed back to their rooms to get ready for our HALLOWEEN PIZZA PARTY!

 

The most important elements of a Halloween Pizza Party: PIZZA and....

 

And really awesome costumes! We had both!

  

Some of the costumes were really scary... like this freaky pair. I don't even know what they were suppose to be but I am pretty sure most of the children were beyond frightened.

 

And then we had some super cool costumes... like these two rockin' teachers.

 

We think that Miss Audrey was meant to be a rock star in another life! 

  

Of course the kids' costumes were adorable! We had a very brave lion...

 

A magical wizard, better known as Harry Potter...

 

A pretty, pretty princess...

 

 And a wicked wonderful witch!

 

I have no idea what this guy was... but whatever he was it was awesome.

 

Oh boy, this was one of my favorites. I think it was rapunzel meets fire-fighter. Our island kids sure are creative.

 

This eighth grader created his ghostly costume about 3 minutes before the party. Um, excuse me... Mr. Ghost? I think you have a little pizza on your mouth!

 

More adorable costumes.

 

I think the missing teeth really pulls this whole costume together!

 

Just some Halloween lovers, rockin' out in their costumes.

 

A blossoming eighth grade flower. Awwww.

 

My favorite adult costume... a chaperone NINJA! I am thinking we should have these types of chaperones on every field trip! Don't make them made or they will have to use their nunchucks!

 

Our whole group!!! I don't think we have ever looked better!



After our dinner our pizza party turned into an ICE CREAM PARTY! YESSSS!

 

It was probably the only time that evening that the room was quiet! 

 

 Everyone was too busy enjoying their ice cream to make any noise.

 

 But the quiet didn't last for long! We had a costume parade before it was off for pool and basketball time.

 

Half of the group headed to the pool where I was afraid they would sink after all that pizza and ice cream!

 

 But they seemed to manage just fine swimming around, even with full tummies. 

 

 While that part of the group enjoyed some well deserved pool time...

 

The rest of the TLC were back outside playing basketball!

 

This is no doubt my FAVORITE picture from the field trip. My "tough" island boys shooting some hoops. I told them to all look like they were posing for "GQ" when I snapped this photo. I think it could be a cover of a music album. They just look to cool for school.

 

And on the sidelines the older girls entertained themselves with lots of giggles and singing.

 

And lots of dancing as well. Later the older boys joined in with some singing and dancing but I was NOT allowed to take pictures of THAT! 

 

I think it is nights like this when I am most thankful for the TLC for these students. They get to just be kids with other kids who are actually their age. It is during these field trips that such strong friendships are formed and a real sense of community is created. These memories will last a lifetime for these students. It is amazing to be apart of it.

So special thanks to all those who make these types of trips happen: our teachers, parents, students and also organizations like the Island Institute who provided funding for all the food and lodging of this trip. Thank you!
