Using sign language while singing along with a recorded version of Louis Armstrong's classic, "What a Wonderful World" Teresa Bond's first grade students entertain staff and family members during their annual tea party at Boston Harbor Elementary school in May 2013. Resplendent in their party hats and paper designer ties, meaning designed by the boys themselves, the group offered two songs before sitting down with their audience to share tea, their stories and poems. Overseeing the tea party at the school for about seven years now Bond said the educational focus has included working with writing, storylines and poetry regarding the student's journals and even a science component utilizing flower seedings which were grown, potted, and given as Mother's day gifts. The school is hosting Monday's School Board meeting.
