|In order:(Thao, Chiamaka, Shanti, Me) Just Celebrating ND Day|
Moving on to the orientation at Pinole Middle School, it was a great two hours and something minutes utilized to go over itineraries, loaner items, time for parents to get to know each other and as well as for the parents to receive an overview on just about most things that constitutes the ILC. The facility was organized well ahead of time, with the multipurpose room being parted into different sections for different cohorts and as well as other rooms to accommodate the rest. Don once again went over some of the various stories of some ILCers, mainly the mistakes that we are expected not to commit in our participation within the ILC. Which included not having your parents follow you around in a restaurant in New York, don't trust the "sanitized" pillows at Cornell, and REMEMBER to respect you chaperone. After, Ms. Kronenberg also gave some input into the some of the stories and basic information of the ILC. Mr. Ray was also mentioned and acknowledged by Don for helping with the continuation of the ILC with the paperwork he helps fill out on a regular basis. Mr. Ramsey was also supposed to be there, but couldn't make it because of an earlier compromise, I believe they said it was a graduation.
