Short week.

I bet if they were alive...they would be out skiing. Hmmmm.
Short week this week...hope you enjoyed your 4-day weekend with your little ones...I did. We had friends in town with little ones...so our house was complete with snacks, naps and fast-paced little ones.
WEDNESDAY night from 3-5pm in the LIBRARY is our YOUNG AUTHOR's judging night. If you would like to be a part of this, please come on in. You will be judging stories from other grades and not your own child's grade. We could use the help and snacks will be provided. 
Thursday- We will have a variety of visitors in our building including the superintendent Pam Shea, Kathy Milburn (Math facilitator) and Karen Edwards (specialist that checks in with teachers on their continuous classroom improvement). We will have a rotating sub through the whole school while she observes and offers feedback to the teachers. 
Friday- I will be out of the building due to appointments in Idaho Falls. 
We will have a RECESS REFRESHER class for the whole school. Please help your child to remember the BIG 5.
