Geology Rocked, And So Did You!

I just wanted to take a second to let you all know how impressed I was with all of you! Your singing, your dancing, your ENERGY, and your smiles! You really pulled it off and I loved watching you!

When we first talked about doing a play, many of you said you were very nervous! Well, you were amazing! I hope this helped you understand that there isn't anything you can't do if you set your mind to it!

I can't stop smiling!

Your very proud teacher,
Mrs. Slezinger

Thank you, Mr. Nubla for the fantastic pictures!

We need a good photo of "the students" if anyone has one to add to this post!

We Won the Good Sportsmanship Gorilla!

During Fitness Week, students are observed at recess and lunch and receive "dazzles" for positive acts, especially good sportsmanship! 

Today the winner was: ROOM 20!

Coach Allison said the major reason we won is because our class cheered on another class and told them how great THEIR cheer was! True examples of good sports!

Way to go, Green Emeralds! You are role models!

Our walkathon will be on Tuesday at 9:00am.  Make sure to wear your fitness week shirt! Any parent who wishes to come and cheer and take pictures for our classroom is welcome.

To Ethiopia, With Love

This is the video we sent to Hailey to show our Ethiopian pen pals so they could have a glimpse into our American lives!
It is supplemented with pictures of my own kids and Hailey, just to make her smile a little bigger!
