Last week's strong winter storm blew the chain link fence off its posts. I snapped this photo early Monday morning before school.
I met with Mrs. Wilding and we discussed the plan for the KIDS program. With your input, we've decided to go with the plan outlined in last Thursday's post. Everyone will participate in the beginning. Look here Thursday for the schedule.
I didn't have the January snack calendar ready in December, but it's out now. Just to be sure: Belle's day is Tuesday, Blaine's got Wednesday, Bud Thursday, and Clayton Friday.
It was sure nice to get back to school. We started off singing, as always. After a few nervous tears, everyone is settled into their new groups.
Students drew a portrait of Dr. Seuss's Cat in the Hat and we've put them on display in the front of the room.
Those strong winter winds seemed to blow almost every piece of litter off the playground. When we patrolled the yard for garbage, I was able to find only a half dozen or so pieces to pick up. Daven and Elias, however, were more resourceful than I. They sifted the dirt where the fence once stood and were able to find more than 80 items of garbage, many of them small. We counted 93 pieces of trash at the end of the day.
