Ms. Kallevig told several stories including origami, and explained to the students that origami cranes are reported by Japanese legend to bring good luck. She finished off her presentation by handing out paper squares to every audience member, and led everyone in a folding story that allowed everyone to leave with their very own origami paper cup! The teachers especially appreciated her advice at the beginning - if you get lost or frustrated, just put your paper down. No one will help you! :) This is especially apt to reinforce our school theme of "effort" this year.
Thank you Ms. Kallevig (and thank you PTO for funding her visit)! We enjoyed your presentation and wish you well!
