. . . "You all brought a big lunch today, right? You're going to need your energy to help us with the park landscaping this afternoon," Miss M said brightly, clapping her hands together, and trying not to look too amused at the blank, horrified, and rebellious expressions aimed in her direction.
. . . She couldn't keep it up too long and laughed. "I'm kidding. We have a great lunch set up for you, and we're going to extend lunch and recess a little bit today..."
. . . Watching the students closely as they reacted to the news about their new classroom pets, Delaney happily noted very few of them seemed upset or disgusted with the pets she'd picked. She had realized there was some cause for concern with picking a pig and a newt, but had hoped it wouldn't prove too big an issue, and so far that seemed to be correct.
. . . "I've listed the final options for the names up here on the board, so please take a good look at them," she began. Smiling when she received Astrid's nod that signaled things were all ready in the lunch area, she continued, "If you'll all please follow Miss McManus, we've got lunch all ready for you! Please take some time to get to know the new additions to our classroom, and once you've decided on your name, there is a box right next to the door for you to cast your vote."
. . . Delaney stepped out of the way to hang back, making sure everyone was following Astrid and not sneaking outside or getting up to any other mischief. Once they had all taken their seats, she added finally, "At the end of recess, Miss McManus and I will have tallied the votes, and we will announce the names. Enjoy your lunch! And please do try to watch your step from now on. The newt is quite easy to lose sight of."

It's time to get those pets officially named! Everyone (meaning CURRENT PHP students and mentors, however, thank you for your contribution, Mr. Colquhoun ) is invited to post an RP of at least 50 words and vote for your favorite pig & newt names! Please use the form and vote just once (though you may continue to RP if you wish).
We did put all of the names into consideration from the first thread... but just to be a little clearer this time around... this is supposed to be a roleplaying activity, not just a voting booth.
Mentors may RP if they'd like, but not vote... sorry guys! You had your turn.

. . . . . We would like to thank everyone who contributed name suggestions, and our panel of prefect mentors who helped us narrow down the list! You've all made this, so far, a success! THANK YOU!
