In a few short weeks, you will be parents of middle schoolers! Please remember that as they grow that they still need parents (even if they don’t think they do). Keep asking questions and remember that they are still experiencing firsts in life. Enjoy the moments and see the amazing young people you are raising!!! I am seeing it already!

Our third graders have been cooking…cooking up delicious book reports!

We recently learned about the different parts of a book-the setting, problem, solution, summary, and characters. After reading chapter books, the students decorated pizza boxes and made pizzas with each slice representing a different topic. We then celebrated their hard work with a pizza party. During the pizza party, we walked around the room and looked at all of the book reports. Some even made a list of books they want to read over summer.

Afterwards, we ate pizza to commemorate their hard work! We even had a cookie cake that looked like a pizza! It was a delicious and fun way to learn about and showcase books!

“Everyday is a new opportunity.  You can build on yesterday’s success or put its failures behind and start over again.  That’s the way life is, with a new game everyday and that’s the way baseball is.” – Bob Feller
