I asked him if I could see it and what it was for. On the outside it said, "Be the Best You!" and "Chee Hoo!!!" On the inside it said, "Make a difference".
Matt's best friend, Chris is also a grade school teacher. Like most teachers, he is always looking for ways to encourage and inspire his little learners. He made up the "Chee Hoo" to serve as their own little celebratory, happy cheer, like my "Woo Hoo" or "Yippee" or "Hip Hip Hooray". He had the bracelets made up and gave them out to the kids in his class.
Sometimes when he wants the kid's attention, he will yell, "CHEE" and the kids will yell back, "HOO!"
Somewhere along the line, they decided that it would be cool to get "CHEE HOO" to catch on outside of the classroom....so being the kid that I am....I offered to help them.
With my promise to spread "CHEE HOO" across the nation, I received my awesome, "CHEE HOO" bracelet!!
It was kind of funny because on the 4th we were sitting on Matt's front porch watching the fireworks and we kept hearing neighbors yelling, "CHEE HOO!!"
So my much used, "WOO HOO" has been shelved and replaced with, "CHEE HOO" in an attempt to spread the cheer and happiness for the children of Telluride!
