After a short hiatus from school to attend special family events, it's back to the routine today. I must say that while getting away offers a fresh perspective, it's always nice to come back to the typical routine and warmth of your own home. Getting away helps you appreciate what you have.
This week includes a number of special school events including a cultural enrichment performance, a field trip, and a readathon. Each event has a specific focus including enriching students' world view, teaching science, and inspiring lots of reading.
As we did a year ago at this time, educators will attend the school committee meeting to express concern about a planned decision and of course there's the preparations for Thanksgiving dinner including making pies and gift baskets. It's a busy, but welcome week of family and teaching ahead. Onward.
