It's All About The Pencil

Today I delivered THE pencils...THE FCAT WRITES pencils and a pep talk to my fourth graders. I was greeted by so many smiles today, kids who are confident because they have all the ingredients for success!

It's Due, Maybe...

I had to step away from the Daily Special for a little while.  Life kinda took over and left me with half done posts or pictures but no words or just some days where I couldn't possibly write about the biggest item on my plate for the day, nicely.  But as of today - I'm back!

Beyond being a Principal I'm a wife, mother, sister, aunt, sister in law, niece and cousin and I get it when life overwhelms and you just have to take a step back, breathe deeply and prioritize. I feel a little like everyone cycles through times like that and now seems to be that time for us at Chets have a choice.  That board that's due Friday, well you can go ahead and do it OR you can wait and put one up on April 5 (there isn't another one scheduled until May 8 and it's the Work Over Time board).  Do it now or if you need the breather, do it later. It's my offering of undersanding the stress we are all under.

Look for fun to come in the next few weeks.  I think we all need to laugh a little more, enjoy each other and take some time to breathe. It'll be fun to see who actually reads this blog...:)
