Time to get this thing started! While my students are sleeping in this morning, I am getting myself ready to go back to school for the first time after a lovely summer vacation. This may come as a shock to my students and students everywhere, but I’m not entirely happy about it either. I love summer break! I love being able to sleep in, to lounge about all day reading a good book, to visit my local bookstore or library and just wander about aimlessly.
But I also love my students. And so I will return to work today with a smile on my face because I know that next week at this time this will be you:
Only with a lot less fur, I hope!
Ok, I’m kidding! But I am looking forward to seeing each and every one of my students next week, even if you’re not looking forward to it! We are going to have an amazing year…I guarantee it!!
Our school theme this year is Imagination. So, before you return next week, I want you each to imagine a wonderful year ahead of you and then make it happen! Our motto in Seventh Grade this year will be:
First you dream it, then you create it!
Be thinking about that over the next week…there will be a test on the first day of school. 🙂
