Let's just say that this week has been crazy. Grace and I had a meeting with our committee last week and decided we needed to have another one this week. The meeting was more centered around assigning jobs to our friends and designing flyers and checklists. It's actually pretty great to have a committee consisting of people from each grade because everyone seems to have connections with businesses! It makes this fundraiser even more exciting..(if that's possible). This week is crucial for us because we have a month and a half left before we need to have everything set in place. This morning we called many places that have blow up laser tag in hopes of getting everything for a very low price. It's been hard to get in touch with a lot of businesses during the week because their office hours are during our school hours However, we had 20 time today at 8am so we decided to call them this morning. We have gotten all of the building forms approved and the proposal typed, so basically now it's all about working to our full potential. When I say this fundraiser is getting stressful, I don't mean it in a bad way. It's actually so fun because I love the feeling of not knowing what will happen next or what to do next. It forces me to think more and use my imagination, which is something that I've always want to do. Grace and I couldn't thank our wonderful committee enough, they have been truly wonderful with helping. Soon our class will begin talking about the Ted X event for Grosse Pointe South. Grace and I are very interested in this opportunity and we can't wait to hear more about it. This project is truly the best thing I've done and Mr. Provenzano supports us with the decisions we make. We couldn't ask for a better mentor and I'm so happy to have been given the opportunity to try and accomplish something I'm passionate about every day.
