I realize this is not the most photographic image, but as the saying goes, "Never judge a book by it's cover." This dog may look like an ole' yard dog lucky to find a home, but this is a special dog that has been loved by hundreds of children over the past 13 years. I would like to introduce you to "Happy," our school mascot. "Happy" came to our school 13 years ago as a stray dog, and has been with us ever since. If you ever come to visit our school, you would see "Happy" on the front steps greeting the children before they enter the building. Later in the day, when the bell rings for recess, you can find "Happy" on the playground hanging out with kids as they run and play. Then, at the end of the school day, you can see "Happy" standing with the children as they are in line to be picked up from school. Over the years "Happy" has made a big imprint on all of our hearts - children, teachers, parents, and even our state auditors.
For this week's color, I thought and thought on where I was going to find the color Apricot. Funny thing is, she was right under my nose the entire time!
