Congratulations! We made it through the first day of the 09-10 school year. We had a great day. I know it was tough in a lot of ways, but we made it. 179 to go! We will have a great year.

Friday, July 10, 2009


Today we mourn the loss of our dear student and classmate, Evan. I know you all are grieving in your own, personal way. My heart is breaking and I am unable to comprehend the events of the last 24 hours.
Evan will live on in each of our hearts here on earth. We know that he is in heaven with our Heavenly Father. It doesn't make the pain any less for those he left behind, but we can celebrate his life and rejoice that he is reunited with God.
Evan, We love you, we miss you and we will never forget you.

Sorry kids! It has been a long time since I've updated.
Here is what is coming up in our room.
Tomorrow: science test, game vs. Yoder
Friday: spelling test
Sunday: practice 6:00-7:30

We are going on our all-school ice skating field trip on the 28th!
I can't wait!
