The 14th Street School has been hosting biography night for almost 20 years – twelve years ago Sam was Thomas Edison – and tonight it was Jack’s turn to continue the tradition. Every second grader chooses a famous person, researches their life, and then writes a brief biography. They memorize their story, dress up in costume, and the entire grade performs their biography on stage in front of the community. Can you say cute?
Jack chose to portray Neil Armstrong, and boy did he look the part! We borrowed an astronaut suit from a friend, and with his black boots, headphones w/mic, and a fresh buzz cut… he was ready to roll. There was lots of practicing over the past week, a few butterflies in the stomach before the event, and a hugely successful and enjoyable night. Jack even remembered to flip his “microphone” down when it was time to start his speech. We couldn’t be more proud of our little astronaut – thanks 14th Street School teachers!
