Graham:

We used our free time during remote school to do a bake sale and art stand in November to raise money for the CMS Foundation and give technology to kids who needed it. We sold art to people all the way in Texas who saw it on my mom’s Instagram account. My pod group made Rice Krispie treats, brownies and cookies and we spent the week making art to sell. Our neighbors came and even some friends who live farther away. We liked being able to help other kids.

Avery:

The best part was meeting all of the nice people in our neighborhood who bought our art and treats. Making the rice krispies was the hardest part - they kept falling out of the pan!

Also, if you go to Eastover, you will always have a nice teacher!

Adam:

It was fun to make brownies. The hardest part was getting the brownie mixture onto the pan because we only had a spoon but we really needed a spatula.

It’s been strange going to school this year because everything kept changing and it was hard to know what I was supposed to do. I liked having playtime with my friends during pod, but I was happy to get back to school in person. It was much easier to go to school in person. I hope we never have another pandemic because I don’t want to miss school again.

Emory:

The best part was seeing how happy the customers were whenever they bought the art and cookies. Making the art and treats was the hardest – how long it took to come up with the ideas for the art and to draw the art and all involved to create our ideas.

It was hard to not be able to go to school at first and see my friends. Then it was hard to wear the masks when we did go back to school. I really missed my friends and it was hard to be away from them.
