Two Down...One and a Half to Go!

Tomorrow is going to be a very busy day! We have the awards assembly (remember your secret shirts!), the Miracle movie (bring your drink and snack), a wiffle ball game, and then the All Star Game agains the staff. Because of the busy day, I had the kids bring home most of their supplies today. We will clean out the rest tomorrow. Art supplies may be donated to kids in Iraq. I ship them over to the troops every summer. Then they distribute them to schools and kids in need. If kids want to keep their supplies they sure can, otherwise I will take care of them for them.

Remember, Friday is a half day. Kids are dismissed at 11:45 that day.

Also, remember that Friday is our bike field trip to the park. Please make sure that bikes are in working order and helmets are ready to go. Do I have any parent volunteers wanting to ride along??? We will leave at 8:45ish and return by 11:30. It is adult choice to wear a helmet. THANKS!

Have a great night!

One down...two and a half to go!

Oh my goodness! Today was a super fun day. I actually got to just hang and enjoy your kid, not as their teacher, but as a human being. We spent most of the day playing wiffle ball working on our character skills. I have to tell you I was so, so impressed with my class. They really demonstrated so high level character traits. It is going to be VERY hard to pick 3 or 4 to play in the All Star Game against the staff this Thursday. I am very proud of all of them, and it is obvious that they have really taken and applied all that they have learned at Morning Meeting all year long. Super cool to watch in action!

Tomorrow morning we will be doing our last oovoo session with Rusty. He wants to know what they have learned from his show all year. I am excited to hear as well.

Today we also took about a half hour and did a walk down blog memory lane. I had the kids go back to blog post number one and look through all we have done. They did not finish, and it was absolutely hilarious listening to their, "oh remember this," or in some cases singing old songs aloud with the computer. Brought tears to my eyes actually. I am really going to miss this group.

Wiffle ball continues tomorrow and we will have our last auction for the year as well. Students will be bringing home their stuff on Thursday so be expecting heavy backpacks. Our bike trip is coming up on Friday. Make sure bikes and helmets are ready to go. Kids need to let me know if they need anything by tomorrow.

Have a great night!

REMINDER

Wiffle Ball Tournament Starts TODAY!!!! Don't forget your hat and tennis shoes!

Jeff the Nature Guy and Bitterroot School!!

Special Treatment for the Bitterroot Bobcats!

video
So we had an absolute blast and because we are Jeff's biggest fans we got some special treatment and behind the scene footage. Here we are all taking a turn going into Smiley the mule deers exhibit and petting his soft fur and fuzzy antlers. We later learned that a wild bear actually got into Smiley's pen and attacked his mate and killed her. So, now Smiley is being introduced to a new friend. Sad!
