Okay, we saw this on our family walk yesterday evening. Nothing is misspelled, and the English is good.
Sooooooooooo, here are my questions.
1. If no humans are allowed, then who wrote this?
2. So, assuming that it wasn't a human slave that the animals forced to write this, did an animal write this?
3. Okay honestly, assuming that this was written by an animal who is tired of humans, do the local animals have better spelling and grammar than the humans?
4. And, assuming that our assumptions are correct, does it take two paws to hold the chalk, or does the animal hold it like with one paw kinda between the pads, or is it like in its mouth?

This appeared on Jeff's chalkboard at Shalom after some of his students from Terre Hill Mennonite High were over there using the ovens in his room. (The music room is also the art room and
For months Jeff and the students at Shalom admired it and wondered who the artists were. Finally, they revealed
themselves. Thank you N.N. and B.N. -- well said (drawn)!
1. I suppose this was supposed to be "wanna", slang for "want to"? Tacky.
2. How does one treat someone? One treats them well. "Well" should be used as it is an adverb modifying the word "treat".
3. If one does indeed want to treat her well, he should buy her
an ICEE. "An" should be used instead of "a" before nouns which begin with a vowel.

We spent an hour today with several students from Shalom Mennonite School rehearsing Lyle Stutzman's arrangement of "Give to Our God, Immortal Praise". Twenty-seven of them will be singing this piece with Oasis Chorale at Barshinger Center in Lancaster on July 15th.

For the last art project of the year, Jeff likes to choose one that stays up in the art room or all-purpose room so that the students can see it when they visit in years to come. This year he again chose a rainbow-themed collage of blended colors. The students were very motivated. They had two goals: seamless fades between colors, and to make a bigger one than the students had made the year before. They succeeded at both. The students had fun working on it, and the APR won't look quite so abandoned this summer.

On the last day of school, the teachers at Shalom Mennonite School celebrated at September Farms. If you haven't enjoyed their fried cheese curds, you need to try them. But before we left the school, we took a staff picture in front of the 7th and 8th grade art elective's final collaborative project. Look closely and you'll figure out why we were standing in that order.
He was already in the car ready to go to September Farms. :-)

One of the most delightful aspects of music camp (and there are many) is the people. Meeting new people and catching up with old friends while making music together praising God is such a precious gift. Jeff was blessed with a gregarious group of enthusiastic singers this weekend, and we sincerely enjoyed our time with them.
Gloria in excelsis Deo!
