Remembering September 11th

We started off the week learning about Patriot Day in our Morning Message:



Later that day, we followed up with a non-fiction book written by Maira Kalman about the John J. Harvey Fireboat that came out of retirement to help out during 9/11:

International Chocolate Day ~ September 13th or Any Day!

Every morning I head over to Checkiday to ensure that I don't miss out on any important holidays.  I'm still celebrating International Chocolate Day as I bought three candy bars from the local Cub Scout Troop!






Back to School Night = Success!

Last Thursday was Back to School Night, and my students especially enjoyed these Parent Night Quizzes from Rachel Lynette:



I also love how the parents can leave a note, too!  I'll definitely be using this "quiz" every year!



Back to School Bulletin Board = Complete and On Time!

I'm such a creature of habit ~ every year my student make an apple and pencil book for Back to School Night:




J. Crew Factory Skirts For The Win!

I find that I've been purchasing many of my clothes from J. Crew Factory like this skirt that I wore for Back to School Night:

Plus, they're always sending me coupons so everything I buy ends up being on sale!

I hope you're enjoying your weekend and getting to relax!  Thank you so much for visiting today!  

Also, please try to link with with Jan from Laughter and Consistency as she creates a new link-up:  Saturday Sum Up!

  1. I know I say this all the time, but I love your morning messages. I actually will have open house on Thursday the 20th. Usually, we have it the second week of school. It's been nice to have extra time to prepare! I love your apples and pencils, and I'm sure the kids do too. They look great!
