Slim Goodbody

March 24, 2010

Holy Cross second-graders enjoyed a field trip to The Folly Theatre to see Slim Goodbody on March 3.

Slim Goodbody sang and danced, and helped the students learn about their bodies.

Second-grade teacher Jo Ann O’Brien reports that there was a lot of audience participation as Slim taught the kids some wonderful songs.

When students and teachers were invited up to the stage to show something they could do using their muscles, Mrs. O’Brien volunteered!

“I decided I would go up and try a front flip that I have not done in years,” she said.  “My landing was not the best, but I was able to walk away. (Thank goodness!!!)”

She vowed to practice this spring and do a better one for the students toward the end of the year.

For her efforts, Mrs. O’Brien was given a CD with the songs from the show.

It appears that we don’t have a picture of Mrs. O’Brien’s flip, though. Feel free to send it to me, if you have one!
