Term break, here we come!

Well, the kids are all safely home, the school is still standing, and the staff are able to relax a bit!

Our end of term program, “We Like Sheep” ended up going really well. I think the kids had fun, the parents enjoyed it, and the message was a good reminder to everyone. I did parent interviews Wednesday afternoon and was encouraged by the support I got from them. Its nice to know that they aren’t mad at me for their kids marks! It was also nice to meet my student’s parents and see some of the traits that they share. So much was explained!

Here are a few pictures—I know its been a long while, but in my defense a) I haven’t taken that many pictures this term, and b) photobucket ueses up a lot of bandwidth.

This is my 5th grade class-

And this is my 6th.

I’m not sure where the strange picture faces came from—most of those scowling girls have an almost perpetual smile from ear to ear. Kids!

This is a picture of Ceili that I really like—isn’t she a beauty?

I'm looking forward to these weeks of perparing, relaxing and getting things done around the house. I hope all you are enjoying your summer, and that you are getting some rest too!
