Another Great Year!

I can hardly believe how fast this year has flown by! I can honestly say this has been one of the most enjoyable years for me in the home school assistance business. I have the privilege of working with involved parents and awesome kids. Not many teachers can say that. So thanks for making my job so much fun!

Some of you were able to be a part of the Abraham Lincoln presentation last Friday given by Lee Williams. He does such a fantastic job of bringing our 16th president to life and the children (and adults too) were a captive audience. Thanks to Kelly for making that happen!

The new Kids' Collection is done and many of you have your copies. Each year I enjoy seeing that come together.

So, time to look ahead to next year. The enrichment theme will be...drum roll please....How Does That Work? A year focused on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM is the buzzword in education) I have plans to study the systems of the human body, a unit called Engineering the City, some hands on physical science (including the science of roller coasters...hmmm maybe a field trip to Adventure Land?) and some really cool hands on Algebra stuff. I'm excited to try to make science and math come alive for the kids.

Also, if any of you would like help in setting goals for next year, or would like to conference with me for any other reason, let me know. I will have some time open next Tuesday and Thursday and also on Tuesday May 24.

Look for registration packets in the mail by late July, and have a GREAT summer!
