Kansas Day

On Friday, January 29 we are encouraging kids to come to school dressed as an early Kansan--like a cowboy/cowgirl or a pioneer.

We will also be spending some time rotating through stations provided by the First Grade teachers with activities related to Kansas Day.

Read This!

One of my 'deals' for 2016 (not a resolution--because let's face it--resolutions are meant to be broken) is to provide you an article once a month.

This month's article comes from one of my favorite websites: www.quietrev.com
I am a big fan of the book Quiet by Susan Cain. She writes about introverts and extroverts and the way we work within the world.

This article struck a chord with me as a person, a mom, and a teacher. Take some time and read it.
