Veronica Gerber: “First day of school”

The first day of school at GHA was Aug 18, 2010.  The first order of business was to go over some of the rules in our classroom.  We got done a little early before we had to go over to the chapel.  We had a short devotions from Miss Rebekah Miller on how when she was in school she always wanted somebody to look up to for help.  Last year we started a program called “Prayer Partners.”  This year the older prayer partner had to pop a balloon with the name of a younger prayer partner inside it to find out who was together for this year.

After that we went outside on the grass and played a whole-school game of prisoners base.  It was a great game.  After that we played 21 skidoo.  The first people who were “It” were the seniors and their prayer partners, then the juniors.  It was two great games; it was a really hot day so they gave us waffle ice-cream cones with sprinkles, Oreo cookie crumbs, and whip topping. It was really awesome. At 12:00 we ended our first day of school and I can’t wait for the rest of the year.
