Have you ever gone for a Polar Bear swim?

The Lamer’s children know how to make the summer extra special.  Emma has figured out how to stay cool while camping.  She went “polar bear” swimming at 7 am.   Isabelle has been camping and playing with Miley, an absolutely adorable dog.  And Brodie, he has loved playing on the beach and hanging out in the shallow water.

Next year, Brodie will be in Mrs. Murphy’s classroom, Isabelle in Mrs. McDonald’s room and Emma in Mrs. Burdis’ class. If you want to check out what other students have been doing this summer, click on the links be low:

Silly Scavenger Hunt Winners

MaggieWe had a three way classroom tie for our SILLY SCAVENGER HUNT WINNERS! These classes had the most scavenger hunt participants and have won an hour of choice activity time:  Mrs. Boersma, Mrs. Bouwens and Mrs. Burdis.   It is important to note that Mrs. Burdis’ class had the highest average of participants in all three scavenger hunts!

The individual winner for the hunt was Maggie in Mrs. Kuieck’s second grade classroom.  Maggie won a $10 Barnes and Noble gift card along with some yummy holiday candy.

Over 80 students participated in the hunt.  This earns them an extra ticket in the Reading Counts drawing that will take place later this week.

We have had three scavenger hunts so far this year–all designed to help you get to know the teaching staff.  We kicked off the year with a hunt about vacations, followed by one about hobbies, and ended with “silly things teachers do.”  In all, we had 331 people participate in our hunts!  I think this is incredible.

It is my hope to kick off a student scavenger hunt this winter!  More news to come in 2010.   Mrs. Reagan
