Putting together the roster is like working a giant ever changing jigsaw puzzle where every move impacts another. Had to wait until the baby went to bed to "play" around with it tonight!

Every day so much happens and I often catch it in a picture and then never get to post. Sometimes it's because I can't talk about what was really on my plate and other times its because my plate was so full that life overwhelmed me so tonight here's a few pics that represent posts that never made it...you make up the commentary! :)

Today I interviewed potential new hires and I was encouraged! There were so many good candidates with so much potential. It's so interesting to hear about veteran teachers' experiences and exciting to listen to that new college graduate talk about waiting and wanting to live out their life's passion. The most unique experience of the day was a Skype interview with a teacher in Arizona! It was a great day full of possibilities!

Below is a memorial to my precious Aunt Peggy that will be dedicated tomorrow. Having had the opportunity to serve as the crossing guard on several occasions I am in awe of her years of dedication. What a true gift of service! Love and miss you Aunt Peggy!

The Ice Cream Truck arrived just in time Friday to help me dispense over 1200 treats to celebrate all the students who met Goal 3 in our Readers to Leaders Campaign to have each student read 1,000,000 words this school year. 750,000 down - 125,000 to go!!!

This morning I dropped my high schooler off knowing she was facing the tough state assessment - the one that has an impact on graduation. She was nervous so I spent some time this morning calming her. To this day she won't take the assessments without using the "special" Chets pencils. :) I quickly turned my attention to some of my other "babies" I knew were also tackling this last test. I texted the ones I still have contacts for and received the response below. It made my whole day. I can't tell you the whole story because its between me and the kids but it reminded me how important words of encouragement and gestures of support are to our children, even years later. Those things stick. Once a Creeker, always a Creeker.

I love getting to give one last pep talk to my babies before the test as I go around and collect the tech. The HEAVY tech! I know some were nervous but they are beyond ready. Today was all about being ready...one of our mothers had her "water" break in the car loop today! A future Creeker ready and on the way. It was a good day.
