Many thanks to Renee and Andrea for being flexible with their schedules to allow for the third and fourth graders to rehearse on two "Friday's" in preparation for their programs on Open House! Patty

Special thanks to Renee who so graciously runs the sound system for me and my programs - especially this Tuesday when everything that could have gone wrong did. Your support and help make me grateful beyond words. (Tears running down my face as I type this.) I appreciate you so much! You are a class act and a great friend. Bless you! Patty

A student asked, “What is an orgasm?” She misread ‘organism’.

During the author visit the author mentioned her husband had a bad habit of reading while watching TV. A first grader asked how does he do that. Another first grader replied, “easy, he has one eye on the book and one eye on the TV.”

Me: Amelia Earhart was the 16th woman to have her pilots license and 16 isn't very many.

Student interrupting: You're right it's 1 ten and 6 ones.

Student: Ms. ???

Teacher: Yes?

Students: This ball is rubbing on me in weird places and it feels kind of good.

Teacher: Oh… Maybe we should find a new spot now…
