High Five For Friday! 10/25/13

Goodbye week 8, and goodbye Quarter 1! Here are the highlights from this week:

Rocket Launch (c) Kristen Dembroski

1. Our 8th graders have been working on a Rocket unit in science class. This week, we took them outside to launch their final products. Our science teachers are really the best. I love this picture of them all looking up to the clouds.

2. I made it to the top 100 Middle School Teacher-Authors on Teachers Pay Teachers! I was just completely shocked and wonderfully surprised! Yeah, #98!!!

3. One of the best things about our school is that our students have a strong sense of pride and school spirit. You can see it everywhere you look!

4. Yes it is getting colder, and yes my furnace did break this week (grrr!!!), but I am forever looking for the silver lining. I take a walk every day after work – just by myself – to help me clear my head. I listen to audiobooks (right now, I am ‘reading’ Scarlet), and let my eyes take in all of the beauty. The fall colors are just GORGEOUS!

5. We have a special birdseed surprise in our backyard. Underneath our birdfeeder, some seeds have fallen and some really interesting things have come to life! Yes, even this late in the season, we have a corn stalk and a sunflower!


Have a wonderful weekend! I get a 3-day Long Fall Weekend, YES SLEEP!!!!
