Memorial Day

I'm having so much fun finding all kinds of things on the internet. Have you heard of LinkedIn? I sent a connection request to LOTS of my contacts so hope to see you connecting soon. There are only seven more days of school with teachers and kids...and then it really gets busy. I'm looking forward to Rummel Creek moving in with us this summer while they are under construction. WITS Summer Writing Camp will be there the month of April. Several of us are headed to Colorado Springs to the Love and Logic Conference. THEN.....2 weeks in Hawaii!!! YEAH!!

Fun day at MWE - click to see our website

What a fun day we had last Friday at MWE. We kicked off Field Day with an Olympic flag parade. Kids made tissue paper flags of over 25 different countries in art and the class flag bearers carried them at the front of each class in our parade. We also had the Texas and MWE flags. The whole school paraded around the track. The StuCo pres was our torch bearer and declared "Let the games begin" as we all gathered around the SPARK Park pavilion to end the parade. The kids had field day events, movie & popcorn, snowcones, picnic lunches and, finally, the Teachers vs Students Kickball game. I have to say the we have some pretty competitive teachers who whomped the students!!

The grand finale of the day was the announcement of the winner (loser?) of the Slime the Teacher contest. Our precious 3rd grade teacher was slimed by members of the Odyssey of the Mind team. They raised $1400 toward their trip to World Competition in Iowa in 2 weeks. Way to go!!
