I had the privilege of speaking about “The amazing Adventures of the Water Cycle” to the boys and girls of Palmetto Elementary School a few weeks back.
On Friday, I was invited back to congratulate the winners of the highly competitive and always fun “Water Cycle Drawing Contest.”
To my surprise we were “live and on the air” as part of the morning announcements.
“The students use the teleprompter, but the adults don’t need it” one student assured me.
My only regrets were that I couldn’t stay for lunch – it was Pizza Day — and that I didn’t have a teleprompter!
Before presenting the winners, I would like to:
(1) Give special thanks to the special events coordinator and teacher Ms. Ashley for inviting me speak to the children. She provided great feedback on how to custom-tailor my presentation for an elementary school audience.
(2) Congratulate the entire school. It’s Palmetto Elementary’s inaugural year. What a terrific building — inside and out — and what a great set of students, teachers and administrators. Not only were you a great audience, I couldn’t believe how much you already knew about the water cycle.
(To be continued tomorrow!)
