I love being a principal! Do you know why? It's because of the children and their wonderful teachers. I love to drop-in on classes to see what they are doing and to share in their learning. Today I dropped in on Mrs. Pulley's AM class who were practicing writing the number 2. Mrs. Gallagher's class was writing in their journals about something they did this weekend. One boy went camping, another was writing about the lightening storm, a little girl wrote about playing soccer. In Miss Christensen's class she was reading aloud and working on vocabulary words from the story. Mrs.
Brookside elementary has decided upon an exciting pirate theme this school year. Each month there will be new goals for the school to try and reach. Every month Mrs. Rudd will host a pirate pride assembly to recognize captain, crew, and pirates of the month. The captain of the month awards go to: Miss Bird, Mr. Hall, and Mrs. Gallagher, we are so lucky to have these amazing teachers at our school. The crew of the month award goes to: Mrs. Hobbs sixth grade class, Mrs. Mezas sixth grade class, and Miss Sahlins sixth grade class.
School began on Wednesday, August 19 and we have a bunch of excited 5th graders. They will be learning math, American History, reading writing and so much year. We are going to have a great year!
