In just a few hours, I will get to meet all of you for the first time-my new students. I can't wait, and I hope that you are as excited to start the year as I am.
I have lots of creative activities planned for the year: projects, collaborations, expert presentations, genius hour, podcasts, screencasts, team building, community, camp, science fair, blogging, camp, and much, much more.
So here we are, sitting by a pool with friends and family, as the last hours of summer tick by. The glow of sunset is on the trees and the laughter of children is slowly quieting. Tomorrow we will be setting backpacks by the door, packing lunches, getting the camera ready for our tradition of a first day, front step picture. We may all have some thoughts of summer lasting forever. It's natural, but once we get started that will fade into pleasant memories as we move into the excitement of the year.
Lets get started! See you Tuesday!
