Graves Haunted House Reflections - Oct 29, 2010

“Somebody grabbed my leg. Everybody was screaming.”

On October 29th R.E. took over 50 kids to the annual Haunted House in Graves Hall at Morehouse College.

My favorite part of the haunted house was when one of the dudes from the haunted house picked me up. Then another character popped up from under the newspaper and attacked me. My second favorite part of the haunted house was when my mentor from Morehouse went in with me and was scared and trying to make me protect him by letting him hide behind me so I could his shield.

The haunted house was not very scary but I was kind of scared. Ms. Suzanna and a mentor from Morehouse picked me up the whole way through!! It was interesting and scary for others but it was very nice.

The haunted house was so scary it made me cry. They made we walk through newspaper and touched my legs. It was so scary. Everyone was crying because people were yelling and there was a chain saw.

The haunted house was scary when you first walk in. There were these men and they jumped off a shelf and they scratch your legs. They tell you a scary story when you first come in. Then they take you in a dark room and tell you are safe we were not. My friends were really scared.

The haunted house was scary. It was so fun and scary that even I was scared. People were popping out of the ground and popping out of the wall. They climbed up the walls too. They told us a story about this man that used to live in the haunted house. Then the man came out of a door with a real chainsaw and scared everyone that was there.

The haunted house was very scary. I even cried, but I faced my fears. When I went in they told us a scary story and scared us really bad. I really enjoyed myself and I really enjoyed being scared.

We had a lot of fun at the haunted house. I wasn't scared even though it was my first time. I can't to go again next year but my family can not because they would be too scared.

I was very scared when we went to the haunted house. My best friend even lost her shoe! She was screaming like someone was really going to hurt her, I just laughed. It was an exciting experience and I hope to do it again next year!

I was completely confident before we actually got to the haunted house but when we went in I got really scared. We saw a lot of scary things. There was torn news paper everywhere. They scratched my feet. The scariest part was when we had to run from the man with the chainsaw. It was scary!!!!!

Cirque de Soleil (Ovo) - Nov 3, 2010

We had a fantastic time!

Cirque du Soleil donated 50 Tickets to R.E.!
We all were kids that night. On two separate nights we took the RE family over to see OVO at Atlantic Station and had an amazing time. Below are some of the kids reflections

My favorite part of the circus was when they flipping . That’s my favorite part because they looked so flexible and amazing and I wish I could do that someday. My second favorite part was when hit the back flips off of the wall.

The circus was amazing. People were jumping into nets. There were people juggling fruit on their feet. That was a once in a lifetime experience. My favorite part was when they were flipping at the end. One person did 20 in a row. That was the most amazing thing I ever saw. No other circus does that.
-Amari, 5th grade

At the circus people were laughing and they were clapping. People were hitting back flips, jumping on walls, and coming up to us. We ate popcorn and drank soda and talked and had fun!
-Sadraeva, 4th grade

The most amazing part of the circus were ladies juggling the big cucumber blocks. I wold love to see that part again. My second favorite part was when the guys started flipping on the trampolines. I also enjoyed the free drinks and popcorn.

I had fun at the circus because it was the biggest circus I had ever seen or been to. It was great. My favorite part was the man carrying the gigantic egg around the stage. I really enjoyed the acting and all the cool stunts. I was glad to be there.
Mason, 7th grade

I had fun. I thought the backflips were really cool. I also thought the lady bug was funny. the acrobatics were awesome. The flower coming out at the end was amazing too.

What do I think about my experience going to the Cirque du Soleil? I loved it from start to finish! It was very entertaining. All of the characters were played so well. The whole story had love, romance, and laughter. I could tell everyone, even our mentors, enjoyed the program. It was so interesting that I was sad that we had to leave.
