High Plains Pre-K Visit: Just like you.

Kids get the opportunity to experience the way Nick communicates with the world. 

We had our first visit of the year in November with the pre-kindergarten class of High Plains Elementary. Nick read his book, “Helping in Action” and shared a bit of his life story growing up in Ethiopia and shared about the unique story of how he had a pet lion! 

Kids were in awe. A pet lion?

So many questions. How can we bring similarities and differences into a classroom where some may have not met a man that grew up in Ethiopia, or had a lion as a pet, but have had similar favorite colors and animals? It is an experience that is priceless for young ones to acknowledge — the beauty of differences and the beauty of similarities. 

We were so excited to be invited by friend and fabulous teacher, Jessica Soulek! 

Thank you, Jessica, for your support and encouragement. We enjoyed our time with you and your students!

2017 For Auld Lange Syne (loosely translated to “Awesome Days Past!”)

Please join us as we review the year in song, to the tune of Auld Lang Syne!….Get ready, it’s a long one!! 

First, the Chorus:

Should Awesome people be forgot

And all the awesome times?

Should Awesome in Action be forgot

An Auld lang syne?

 

 

And now, the song:

 

We got a new illu-stra-tor

His name be Darby boy

 

 

 

Senora Urban’s Helping out

Translating to Spanish joy

Surely the Nemesis video will rock

And surely the Peaks  do, Right?

 

 

 

Let’s not forget fun times at Monroe

With Author visits and Literacy Night!

 

 

 

REPEAT CHORUS

We made new friends; great advocates

The Flet-cher Fam-i-ly  IMGP4418

 

Have brought us in to Community Pre-K

And High Plains school with glee

 

 

 

REPEAT CHORUS

We twer lu-ck-y to watch th-e burn

Ripple Effect’s black belt tests

And made a great new film with Alayna,

& Ninja Nate; our filming bests

 

 

REPEAT CHORUS

In Estes Park we met a gal

Who was paying Forward love,

We had a blast in a parade

With our Friends who didn’t shove

And here’s a hand to C.A.S.T for Kids CAST 2014

We went all the way to Boulder Rainbow Childcare

To spread our ins-pira-tion.

REPEAT CHORUS

 

Foco Comic Con, a great success-

Anyone can be a hero, we say

We made costumes, and made some friends

A grand and funny day!

REPEAT CHORUS

The librarians in Love-land

We saw Loveland from above.

The year came to an Awesome End

With a visit to Prairie School

And we vow to see it through

We’d love to have your continued support

Please let us come to you!

 

Who knew this song could be so long?

Who knew the many verse?

 At least we got a chance to say

All we’ve done, for better or worse

 

Have a Safe and Happy New Year!!!
