The Blackston Bulletin

May 2-6


I was unbelievably surprised at your graciousness during Teacher Appreciation Week!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for the sweet notes, gift cards, chocolate, coffee, flowers, muffins, wax warmers, essential oils, tissues, tape, name plaque and even a cow bell!! What is so sweet, is that the kids bring me things they think I would love based on any comments they hear me make in class. For instance the other day, I said I needed a cow bell during recess so they could hear me when it was time to come in! Hence, the cow bell:) I have loved every part about this year.

Thanks again!

All students have Pop-The-Top on Monday due to their unbelievable performance on the MAP tests this week. It is amazing to see their growth in Reading and Mathematics just over the past seven months. I was astounded. GREAT JOB CLASS!!!
