A grateful heart...
My heart is grateful for....
...Angela Harris, who has worked with at least two and maybe more grade levels to create Junior Great Book groups to read and discuss quality stories at very high levels.
...Brittany Cohen, who has been working really hard to deal with a student behavior issue. She keeps trying new things, and always smiling about it!
....Kim Graham, for organizing the incentive/reward party for our 3-5 grade students who did math over the summer.
....Lauri House, Allyson Dickinson, Cyndi Felker, and Terri Freyou for their GTU sessions. We are blessed not only with excellent teachers who also don't mind putting themselves out in order to share their expertise with the rest of us!
....Hieid's willingness to stand on the corner, rain or shine, in order to help make our arrival and dismissal safer and more efficient.

Sometimes the craziest things (like Grossology) catch their attention! Part of the marketing is thinking up intriguing names and writing a description that captures their attention.
On Friday, I shared a Google Doc on which I need you to write your class title, description, your name and number of children. I have to get the selection sheets out by next Friday in order to have everything organized by the 30th, our first class. If you don't have it done by Sunday night, I'll be looking for you Monday!
Molly will be gone Monday, Tuesday and part of Wednesday. She's babysitting while Chris and Tara are at a conference.
