We're Back from DC!

That was the trip of a lifetime!  If you haven't had the chance to check out the photos from the trip yet, they're available at simmonstodc.tumblr.com.  The password is the name of the great COUNTY we live in (it starts with a lower-case w)  =)

Also, this Monday-Wednesday, we have the very special privilege of having an "Artist in Residence" here at Simmons.  Her name is Jennifer Rose, and she is an expert on Appalachian Music.  You will get the chance to hear her speak and play during specials.  Also, our lunch times are a little different Monday-Wednesday, so just get ready to eat a little bit later!

The "Week of Testing" is coming up soon!  <cue scary music...just kidding>  Each classroom has it's own animal and color this year.  We are the "Neon Newts" (which a student of mine has cleverly given the acronym the "Never Ending Winning Team")  We are going to be creating some "Team T-Shirts" later on this week, and I'm asking each of my students to bring in a white or neon t-shirt to decorate by Wednesday.

This should be fun everybody!  Only 5 more weeks of school left... can you believe it?
