Finally a Day Off

Well as this week concludes we have our first day off in 9 days. I'm not complaining and neither are my students. A fellow twitter principal (a twitter user) has had 5 no school days, 3 due to ice and 2 due to extreme cold. As we enjoy 75-80 degrees weather I can't believe what it must be like.
Hill running is becoming addictive, there are so many great sites, especially when you make it to the top and look down.

Week one down and one to go

Students were great this week. We have a new principal, and she got off to a great start with staff and students.

This week students are taking Pace Standards test to see how things are progressing as we get closer to the state tests in the Spring.

Got several good hill runs in as well as the normal stuff. Hoping to increase mileage this week.

Missing England a little, but slowly getting back into the swing of things. This week should go fast. Lots of prep work for lesson plans and project directions to pass out.

Ready Set Ut Oh

Well I'm sitting on my back step thinking about how great these last 2 weeks have been and getting for my first day back.

So much has happened over the last 2 weeks that it feels more like a month. Several times since we returned from I have thought about how I have had more time off than many have for a year. We returned with plenty of time to adjust to the time change, get all the decorations down and even straighten up a little around a major feat for us.

Cale helped me get my room ready for my wonderful students and I even have a pretty good idea of what I want to accomplish in class this week. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and is ready for the coming year.
