I hope everyone is having a great weekend. You all deserve it after the busy Friday we had.
That was the most successful Michaelmas Fair for us. The crafts were amazing this year. Word on the street has it that the crafts were the best yet. I was so proud of the kids. What a great learning experience for all involved. Thank you all for the awesome support you gave the kids over the last few months. The kids really, "rocked it out"! We will now try and give back some of our money back to the community, the school, and for our own class. The Warner Indian Museum will be paid for out of our Michaelmas Account. We will pay for the chaperones and the buses also. The kids' whale watch will be paid for too! We will give a free book of choice to the third graders at the PTA Book Fair, and we will give to a charity in need or whatever else might come up during the year.
Thank you room moms and room dads, grandparents, family members and friends. Our profit was astonishing! The kids can be very proud of themselves. We can all take a deep breath and relax for awhile. Next up will be the Halloween party and parade. I think we are all set with food and drinks already. Our room parents are amazing!
We will get back to normalcy this week. Wonders reading will be starting in Unit 2 week 1 and we continue unit 2 in math.
I will be sending home permission slips to be signed for the Karate School that will be visiting us on Thursday. Mr. Standon is a friend of mine and he is an amazing instructor. The lesson will be tied in with discipline and Halloween safety. The kids will even get to break a board if their permission slip is signed.(shhhh)!
We will also have our visit with the New Boston Fire Department. They do such a great job with the kids. After our meeting with them we will write them thank you letters.
Have a great week everybody. Go Sox, Go Pats, Go Celts!!!
Let the kids be kids. Every child has a strength. It is up to the teacher to find it or tap it so they can work to their highest potential. I tend to set the bar very high. Lifetime memories should be made in the classroom and at school. NBCS should be a place where kids enter happy and go home with a smile on their face. I want my kids getting up in the morning begging to go to school!
