We read more of Wonder and some of the other characters were introduced. There was a reference to Mr. T. Here is a photo of what they were talking about when Auggie asked if the principal was called Mr. T.
Mr. T. was a big time celebrity in the 1980s. He was on the original A-Team TV show. He was also a boxer in one of the Rocky movies, Rocky III. One of his famous catchphrases was, "I pity the fool who ..." followed by some sort of description. Something like, "I pity the fool who doesn't read books!"
Today, the students began to share their learning about the hot topics surrounding the 2015 elections. They have started to learn about the pros and cons to some topics from vaccinations to government surveillance and also about privacy and freedom. Next week, a candidate from the Liberal party of the Cloverdale riding will be coming to talk to the students about his platform. We are hoping to have the other candidates come to Hillcrest to talk about what they hope to do if they are elected. (Thank you Mr. Hong for being on Twitter.)
