Are You Ready?

Today was our first day back at school! All of the teachers and staff members are getting ready for your arrival next week. We can’t wait! Now, I know you’re probably thinking, “Whoa! Hold on there, Miss McMillan! It’s still summer vacation. I don’t wanna be thinkin’ ’bout no schoolin’!” To that I can only say:

Um, perhaps you really should!

In any case, you still have an entire week left. Time to read a few more books, play a few more games, read a few more books…wait, did I say that one already? How about time to clean your room, do your laundry, iron your socks…


Alright then…I guess I’ll just say I hope you enjoy these last few days. But start thinking about your goals for your seventh grade year. And consider this question:

What do you want to learn this year?

Ready or Not…

I Can Still See You!

No sense trying to hide, my friends. Whether we are ready or not, it is time to head back to school! And, yes, I do include myself in that we! Believe it or not, we teachers like our vacations away from school at least as much as you do. 🙂

If you haven’t already noticed it, I’ve added a page to this blog with a growing list of Student-Recommended Books. If you’re looking for something new to read before you return on Tuesday, that’s a great place to start. All of those books were recommended by your seventh grade classmates.

Speaking of books…here are the latest totals for my amazing Seventh Grade Reading Community:

Keep up the amazing work, my friends!!

As you are preparing to head back to school, here is something for you to think about: What do you expect from 2011? You have 363 days left to learn something new, do something great, change your life, change your world. What’s it going to be? Who will you be on December 31st, 2011? Will you be the same? Or will you be changed?

What’s it going to be?

I can’t wait to see all of you on Tuesday!!
