I've been back in school for a week and half with students and I've already had Curriulum Night. I've conducting All About Me and Reading Interviews. Then I had the students write answers for me to surveys about math, writing, and word study. I had these out for parents to view when we gathered to learn more about second grade and the hopes the students and I have for the year. This information has given me a lot of insight to my group of new friends, possibilities are ahead for us.
I also did something a bit different this year, I stepped back and didn't have volunteer sign ups or a donation list ready. I was honest my home life has been busy and we would be online with those things in a week. I appreciated their patience and no one seemed bothered they weren't ready to go. The possibility of putting something on pause is okay.
I am also celebrating for the first time the possibilities of higher education for one of our daughters. She went a couple of days early to assist with move in day and we couldn't be more excited to how she embraces opportunities and possibilities. She's off to a great start!
Thank you Ruth, for supporting us in finding the positive in our busy lives.
