Round 5 - Spring 2036
Elementary School: Principal, Lorelai Ellison, 30; Pre-K: Javion Carr, Gabriella Newson; Grade 1: Kayden Carr, Gallagher Newson; Grade 3: Imani Coners, Imara Coners, Kali Knowles; Grade 5: Christa Brown, Sam Walters
Lorelai had really enjoyed this school year, but she was also really ready for summer vacation! The kids were becoming a bit restless and everyone seemed to feel the strain of the year. Her third graders were always pretty well behaved, though.
She had recently gotten the class their own little hamster to take care of. Of course, Lorelai would be taking care of him during summer vacation.....
The girls named him Oreo and seemed really excited about having him. But Lorelai knew that excitement didn't last long with kids. Hopefully poor Oreo wouldn't become neglected once they lost interest! But there would be new students with new interest in him. He would probably be okay......
She only had two pre-schoolers this time and they seemed to get along fairly well. Gabriella Newson seemed to be a bit bossy, but Javion Carr didn't seemed to be bothered by it........
Christa and Sam really took to the new art room and spend most of their time in it. Christa would soon be in junior high and Lorelai was a bit worried about her. She didn't seem to be very happy and mostly stayed to herself. Lorelai really didn't want to have to have a meeting with her parents. Mayor Brown could be a bit difficult at times......
Gallagher and Kayden stopped in the Pre-K room to check on their sister and brother. The boys were excellent big brothers and wanted to make sure things were going okay between the two. Kayden made a note to tell Javion not to let Gabriella boss him around so much!
Over at the high school, Kip was also looking forward to summer vacation. The teenagers were getting restless and it was harder to keep them on task. And springtime also seemed to bring out the raging hormones as well.
Kayla Knowles was doing a teaching internship during her last semester of LBU and was in charge of the art class. Kip was glad to have her around to help and the students seemed to really like her. Maybe it was because she was a bit closer to their age than him!
She was able to give them tips and they actually listened to what she had to say. She was majoring in art and was quite the talented artist so they trusted that she knew what she was talking about.
Caleb and Ginger were goofing off a bit and had to be reminded that they were in class. Kayla didn't like having to discipline anyone as she had problems with authority herself. But luckily the students respected her enough that she didn't have to say much to them.
She didn't plan to do this for very long, but it would be a nice job to have while she waited on her trust fund. She would have weekends off and be done with work early enough to still have time to work on her drawings.
Meadow was still pretty studious, but Kip's new student, Raphael Jones, seemed to have trouble concentrating. It was the curse of the spring semester!
Their time in the library was spent mostly on playing games and surfing the net. Kip hoped they all came back much more focused after the summer!
The kids didn't even mind eating their lunch with Kayla! Raphael seemed to be prety popular among the female students, especially with Jean Mahesh. She was also a new transfer student.
Ricky was still enamored with Meadow and even took her abusive noogies with a smile. He hoped that he would finally wear her down..........
* My school posts won't be combined, I just wanted to take them both through a run to make sure they operate ok......they do!
* I had an awwww moment when I saw Gallagher and Kayden checking on Gabriella and Javion :).......I guess they are both two pretty cool big bros!
* Ricky still has a crush on Meadow, but Meadow likes Kip lol. And all the girls seem to like Raphael, which doesn't look too good for Caleb and Ricky lol. Raphael and Jean are just two townies I added to replace Randy London and the other townie girl I had before. When I installed clean templates this time I lost them and I didn't package them like I did Meadow and Ricky :/
* Kayla will be the new art teacher started in the Fall of 2036. I was trying to decide what to do with her until she gets her trust and I figured she would make a pretty cool high school teacher. It will give her time to still work on her paintings. She reminds me of this English teacher I had in high school. She was also in her twenties and is still one of the most awesome people I know :)
