:-) Happy Teacher

Happy Monday, my dears!

While y'all are gallivanting all over town, I'm here at dear CMS about to begin a day of professional development!  I'm looking forward to seeing my smiling students tomorrow!

I wanted to extend a GIANT thank you to all of the students who were able to make it to Saturday's book festival in spite of rain and general busy-ness.  It was such a great experience to see CMS students so engaged in literary conversation with a real, live author--whose work they've read and enjoyed.  I was extremely impressed by the caliber of questions asked by our CMS seventh graders, and I know Mr. Rothwell is proud as well.  I hope that many of you were able to find some great book bargains too!  I bought about 15 myself, plus a few good-looking selections for our classroom library.

At the end of Mrs. Connor's talk, she said to me, "You are a very lucky teacher to have these kids for your students."  I quite agree.

Thank you for being wonderful!  Don't forget--your next SRC is due TOMORROW!!!  Don't be late!  If you need a copy of the alternate assessment list, you can find it in the Scholastic Reading Counts menu on this website.

Happy Reading!
Miss Whitman
