Guess where I was on Monday?
Not San Diego. Not L.A. Not Toronto.
I was in LAMAR, OK for an all-day-long school visit at their K-12 school. MOSS Public School.
(Actually, I just Googled Moss School and the address is in Holdenville, which means I don't, uh, know EXACTLY where I was. Not unusual for me!)
What can I tell you about Moss? With their elementary school and high school combined, they have a student population of a little under 300. They have a great reputation for sports. They have hardworking students and staff. They offer both breakfast and lunch. They have tons of school spirit.
THEY HAVE WONDERFUL STUDENTS AND WONDERFUL TEACHERS!!
The students were amazing listeners and asked great questions.
Look at these students. You can just tell they're a terrific bunch!
A brave volunteer
The teachers were helpful and friendly and...
they had a luncheon for me with delicious food! I could've eaten until I popped.
This is one of the beautifully-decorated tables laden with scrumptious food.
Here are some of the delightful Moss teachers.
More wonderful Moss teachers
You know you've "arrived," when you're allowed access to this room... ;)
I was thrilled to hang out at Moss, presenting to students, chatting with students and staff. T-H-R-I-L-L-E-D!
Not just because everyone was fun and kind and interested in books and reading and Sherry.
I have a special connection of the heart to this rural Oklahoman school.
Look whose senior picture is hanging in the hallway of Moss High School?
My DH's. Awwwww... (Yes, he's had a serious hairstyle change.)
I LOVE MOSS!!
