School Update and Fundraiser

Emma is really having a great time in Second Grade. We saw the principal at the back to school picnic and she remarked on how great Emma is doing so far. We just found out last week that Emma's class is having a student teacher this year. She'll be in the classroom, helping the regular teacher, for three days a week this fall, and then next spring she'll take over teaching full time under supervision of the regular teacher. I'm delighted, since this basically means that Emma's class has two teachers.

Last Friday Emma also came home with a fundraising packet. School has barely started and already they're putting the kids to work raising money! Of course, these days the onus falls on the parents because the kids aren't supposed to go door-to-door to sell stuff to strangers. Feel free to click the link above and take a look at what they're offering. The money goes directly to Emma's school and this year they're using it to buy computers and other technology. Thanks!

Sharon, check your link there, I couldn't get it to come up?

Thanks Harriet - I fixed it.

Hi, Sharon...same here with the fundraisers. Already!!! It's so hectic. Sheesh.

Glad you are excited about the student teacher, and I'm so happy to hear that Emma is doing so well!

Just when we thought we were finished with the fundraisers (after all how much wrapping paper and chocolate can you buy), my son started high school. Yesterday we got an invitation to a golf outing... :)

Cheryl - yeah, it's crazy isn't it? And they offer up all these prizes depending on how much you've sold, so the kids feel bad if they don't earn any. Ugh!

Patti - Yep, the good old wrapping paper and chocolate. Emma hasn't sold much so far this year, so looks like I'll be buying a lot of that stuff. Guess they step it up in high school even more from the sound of it.
