So I have not been blogging this week.
I can explain.
With roughly 20 School Days until the kiddos are
gone there has been so much to do.
I feel like there is still SO many things I want to
teach them, but the days that are left *cough*
20 days... are not all mine to do so.
I have been trying not to think about it.
And why I have not been thinking about it, I have been
keeping busy with a school outreach project.
Last year before I arrived, a tragedy hit my school.
It happened at the end of last school year.
A family of five became two because of a house fire.
And a poor little second grader loss her twin, her
daddy and another sibling.
SO my school is dedicating our courtyard in honor of
her family, and the families in our school community.
And guess who is in charge of the Reflection Garden Committee?
Today we started the hardest part.
Weed Removal. Ughhhh!
Let me just say my favorite color is green.
My name means "green precious stone."
But my thumbs.....NOT GREEN AT ALL.
I am exhausted with End-of-Year-itis, but I
gladly take on the task.
And I wasn't the only one!
This little kinder kiddo was super cute
...and super busy!!
FYI: No child laws were broken.
His mama was out there!
BONUS: Some of our removal was postponed
due to this discovery:
We have contacted the Humane Society, so these babies
and their mama can have a chance at a new (and safe) home.
I am thankful for the village of students, custodial
staff, parents, teachers and paraprofessionals that are
all taking part in the clean up.
