Mr. Posick's Friday email

February 16, 2017

No school Friday, February 17th or Monday, February 20th

It's mid-winter break time, and as the meteorologists are forecasting, it's more like Spring Break. So get outside and enjoy the weather as a family. I've even heard of a couple of golf courses being open! Enjoy the 4 day weekend.

#shadowastudent

On Monday, I was able to shadow two students. I shadowed Ashley, a 6th grader, in the morning and then I shadowed Emily, a 7th grader in the afternoon. I did it as a challenge from a group of principals that I'm connected with on Twitter and Voxer (If you'd like to know more about Twitter or Voxer, please let me know!). Here is a blog I wrote about my experiences in class. Thanks to Mrs. Johnson, Miss Koch, Mr. Pomeroy, Miss Depies, Mrs. Hess, and Miss Francoeur for letting me shadow in their classrooms.
