A few weeks ago we had our May Day interviews for our positions on the royal court. I was very nervous but I thought my interview went well. I was asked 5 questions that would determine my placing. Last thurseday we were told our roles and I am Mea Oli. The Mea Oli's are the royal chanters and I am happy I got that role because I wanted to be MC or Mea Oli.
On February 22, Sacred Hearts had an open house. Carter and I greeted people coming to see our class. Krizhna and Erin gave a speech on what we as a class learn about sustainability and our class following the Hokulea. We had laptops at the back of the room displaying our blogs, and our portfolios on the desks to show what we have learned since 6th grade.
A few months ago our school started a garden for each class. In the 8th grade box we planted lettuce, kale, kalo and marigold. Recently the plants were attacked by aphids so Mr. Mason made a replant with Dr. Bronners every uses soap. It worked! now our garden boxes are aphid free and are growing happily. Soon we will harvest the lettuce and make a class lunch.
