Percy's Memorial Service

Perseus "Percy" Jackson, our beloved classroom bearded dragon, died peacefully in his sleep over winter break after a week of sickness. We loved that guy so much. The students and I are going to miss him. The classroom won't be the same without him.

When we came back from winter break and I told students the news, we decided to use our Writer's Workshop time that week to develop meaningful pieces of writing to express our sadness. After seeing the amazing pieces students were creating, we decided that they should be shared. One thing led to another and before we knew it, we had developed and planned a beautiful memorial service for Percy which we held this past Friday. Thank you to all who attended and shared their thoughts and feeling and sadness with us.
