Around Classrooms:The seasonal art around classrooms continues to be very impressive! Mrs. Brown's 5th grade started working on their cornucopia art projects.
Mrs. Smith's kinders had some excellent math stations going on with patterns, counting and addition.
Mrs. Miller's 6th grade has been working on incredible blog posts! Thank you for letting me read and comments on student writing! The class also listened to beautiful classical music during writer's workshop.
While going into classrooms this week, the recurring theme I saw was around the topic of thankfulness. As I saw students reflecting on what they are thankful for, it made me reflect about what I, personally, am thankful for during this time of year. I am thankful to be with all of you at Olivet. Many of my friends, family, and former colleagues in Petaluma have asked me how my new job is going. Every time one of them asks, I enthusiastically respond, "I love it!" I am able to give that response because of you and for that, I am thankful to all of you.
