|This old guy would skate, I'm sure of that!|
The good news is Maddie Everson did not break her arm last night at the roller skating event. She only sprained it.
That's the reason (in case you were wondering) why I don't go to "Skate Night"—too dangerous for an older guy like me who never skated much to begin with. The first one I went to, years ago, I fell badly on my arm. I thought it was broken. I lost a day of work and over the next few weeks nursed a very badly sprained wrist back to health.
Mrs. Everson got in by mid morning with the good news, a relief to all of us. We got through the morning hour usually devoted to our learning centers by doing a Cat-in-the-Hat drawing lesson, work made much easier with the generous help of my room moms who once again went the extra mile for the kindergarten. THANK YOU!
|Finally! New art for the front wall.|
|Such good drawings|
It's been a long time since we found time to be with our third grade buddies. The rain-canceled our usual bicycle time, so we joined with our friends from third grade for some time to share art

|Watercolors were available, too.|

Alyssa's oldest sister (seventh grader and Dunham Kindergarten graduate) Natasha Mc Kenney had a day off school and stayed with us all day long to help the students in countless ways. I heard many students say how much they liked Natasha.
Natasha earned Dunham School's most prestigious award last spring: the Dunham Outstanding Citizen Award. She was selected by the staff as the most helpful, considerate, thoughtful, and kind student in a graduating class that was full of many fine citizens.
