We're Kind of a Big Deal!

SO I have blogged a little bit about our chicks.  What I did not tell you is that our chicks were part of an amazing grant that our Phys Ed teacher got from Discovery Education.  

Today was the big day when Discovery Education came to school to hand us a ginormous (literally... it was 5 feet long) check for $30,000.  What we did not know was that Mr. Bob Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots football and Revolution soccer teams, was in the building.  COMING TO CHECK ON MY CHICKS!  It turns out that he loves chickens and has 11 at his house.  Who knew?

So here I am with Mr. Kraft.  Who in these parts is KIND OF A BIG DEAL and KIND OF A CELEBRITY.  I was freaking out!  I told him that next time he comes he should feel free to bring Tom Brady :)

So after our lovely visit in my classroom we headed upstairs for an assembly for all of the classes who worked on the grant.  Discovery handed the big check over.  THEN Bob Kraft matched it!  As in, another ginormous check for $30,000!  

I could not be happier for my school.  We are in a very high poverty neighborhood and do not have all of the resources that we need.  So proud, so inspired.  So obsessed with Mr. Kraft!
I am all over THIS video (look for black and white striped shirt looking sweaty and frazzled).
