Dear Mr. John,

What a wonderful assembly! I have never seen (in my 41 years teaching in Metro Schools) students this excited about a program. Even when the people on stage blow something up, it’s exciting but the students aren’t allowed to participate. With this everyone participates.

This was Awesome with a capital A. Every student I have asked said that they “really liked it”. You might have noticed other teachers and staff coming in to see want was happening. Teachers on the third floor said they watched through the windows in the auditorium doors. Each adult I spoke to was impressed and asked if it was going to be repeated for other grades.

My Algebra class had just taken their End Of Course test. This was a great stress reliever for them and for me. My only thought, at first, was that the music was so loud that they could not hear the questions. Then I realized that the music was perfect. The students heard everything. They are used to multiply sounds. The old folks, like me, were the only ones who could not hear the questions and it was not intended for us.

To paraphrase my friend, they were having so much fun learning that they didn’t know they were learning. Please thank Nissan and the State Highway Patrol for sponsoring such an outstanding activity for students.

Sincerely,

Judy Beasley
