The week started off with my son being sick...right when I was about to leave for school...So the whirlwind of trying to find a sub and getting my plans to school began! Thank goodness, it was a short-lived illness and he was back to normal by later that night!
We had our yearly Literacy Days competition this week. It is a district/area competition and we got really late notice of it this year, but somehow our amazing staff got our school competition ready in time! I'm not sure if any of your schools do something similar, but for the K-2 level, they have the categories of poetry recitation, read-aloud of their best writing piece, and a play. For the 3-5 level, they have the same categories, except the writing is not a previously produced writing piece --they must write their writing at the competition! Anyway, each homeroom should provide a classroom winner for each category except for the play. We usually try to do at least one play for each of K-2 and 3-5. With the late notice this year, we did not do a play.
The great news is that my two classroom winners won for our grade level and get to move on to the district level competition. They were awesome!!

Our float was "Past, Present, Future." We had past principals and staff along with our present students, and had some of our students dress up as a future career. We have heard a lot of positive comments about our float and participants!
Here are a few pics of my class and our parade...
And, now...Thank the Lord it is FRIDAY! It has been a fun week, but a L-O-N-G week! I hope yours has been fun too!
Till next time...
