I want to wish all of you a wonderful holiday break with your family and friends! And, as our family greeting card says…wishing you some silly moments in the 2011. Laughter (along with at least 60 seconds of silliness each day) is truly the best medicine!
I am including a snapshot of school events for the next 7 school days. We have a full week of school this week, and due to Thanksgiving break, just two days in the following week.
Please remember to check your child’s classroom blog for specific details about upcoming events!
Also, keep in mind that we have launched our third blog scavenger hunt. This hunt introduces you to silly things that Georgetown staff and teachers do…posts sure to put a smile on your face.
Have a great week!
Ever wonder what teachers do to be silly? I have! To help us all find out, I invited the teachers to all write posts this month about something silly they did over the summer. You can visit their blogs to find out what it is they consider silly. If you don’t see the post on the front section of the blog, simply type the word silly into the blog search area.
My silliness usually shows up when I am around really young children and dogs. My dog, Cooper, brings out some of my silliest behavior, which I think he likes a lot.
This summer, I decided it would be fun to teach Cooper how to be a “SURFIN’ DOG.” Because he only weighs 12 pounds, I used a small kick board. It was easy to teach him how to walk onto the board, but he had absolutely no intention of being pushed across the pool. His idea of surfing was to cozy up to me and be gently rocked back and forth. It was a silly idea…but it made for a great picture!
