The grade 8 class has been talking about making choices and choosing the direction they are going to go in the next couple of years, so I thought the following quote would be a good jumping off point for graduation: "I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination." - Jimmy Dean. I didn't think sailboats would work very well for this particular class, so I decided to go with pinwheels instead.

Then sprinkle glitter onto the wet glue, rotate it, and continue on with the other two points.
I almost forgot the tally: The paper pinwheels (24 in total) cost me a grand total of $1.00 for the glitter. I happened to have the skewers on hand and I always have white glue in the house. The card stock pinwheels cost $1.50 for the glitter glue, I had a package of brads and the card stock from another project (I used 5 different colours). Each 12" x 12" card stock made 4 pinwheels in case you want to try and need to buy some card stock first. Personally, I prefer the book page pinwheels by far!
Come on back next week to see how I tie the centerpieces all together...
