Our halls and walls are bursting with artwork by room 9 students. Take a look.


Hooray for spring! We are finally seeing some sunshine and warmer weather. With the change in temperature, it's fun to change what we wear to school. Shorts, t-shirts, and sandals are much more comfortable to wear at this time of year. If your child wears sandals, flip-flops or other open-toed shoes to school though, they will be asked to stay on the blacktop at recess time. They may not play on swings, or climbing equipment due to the safety hazard of getting toes caught in the play structures. They will also not be permitted to participate in PE. We have had one injury so far this year. So, it would be best to continue wearing safe, close-toed shoes to school to be able to fully participate in recess and PE.

Landon is a star because he helps. He shows others he cares by letting them play with him. Landon's favorite things are the color red, lions, pizza, soccer and math. He likes to read Flat Stanley books. At home he likes to play games. Landon's super-cool facts are; "I had lip surgery. I can build a Lego skyscraper. I have a good imagination." When Landon grows up he would like to be a police officer.

I have been invited to attend a three-day technology conference for teachers in Portland this Wednesday through Friday. I will be learning new ways to integrate technology into all areas of our curriculum and how to better engage students with technology in the classroom. Mrs. Pope, the Science Lady, will again be our guest teacher. She really enjoyed working with room 9 students in January, and is looking forward to returning.
