post Spring Break...9 weeks left!

Bear Mountain hike in Sedona with Mrs. Stitt

I love cactus!

WE clean up pretty nice!

Yea...for a date!
And yea for shorts and ice cream!
We had an some glitz-filled spring break! I hope you had fun too. Judging by the stories that were shared in morning meeting and the journal entries during writing sure sounds like all the kids had a blast!

It's good to be back. I can't believe we have 9 weeks left. I have my work cut out for me. We have 3 short units in math to breeze through...2 writing units and 2 reading units...

Some things to know:
NO more volunteers are needed. I will be calling on a few on an as NEEDED basis...but it is this time of year when I like to start weaning the K's from all the support and start them on the INDEPENDENCE TRACK. Please understand that I appreciate all of your help. I will be having a VOLUNTEER luncheon in May. More details to come!

NEW kindergartners for the 2012-13 year SCREENING is coming up on April 24th. If you have one coming in...please stop by and get your packet. It is due by the 19th. Please call and schedule an appointment for the 24th. If you know any new K's coming by spreading the word. Thanks!

I will be taking a leave of absence next year until January. I will not be here at all until after the Christmas break.
