Classroom Notes

Greetings!

It was great to return to Team 20 last Friday after three weeks away with Evie and our new daughters.  Aside from needing a few more hours of shut-eye per day for the parents, I am pleased to report that all are doing well! 

We began our Friday morning in room 20 by sharing together stories and photos of the girls and stories about the world of Team 20 over the past three weeks.  We also talked about some goals for the time we have left.  I shared a sports analogy about how even the strongest teams can let their guard down as the season comes to a close.  The final moments can transition from being productive to lackadaisical and from being focused to unfocused.  So the goal for our team during our remaining weeks is to “stay strong.”  Stay strong means something slightly different in each context, whether it is coming into the room and choosing a priority during the morning routine, transitioning through the hallways to specials, being focused during writing, choosing a good spot to read during independent reading, and so on. 

Here’s a list of upcoming Lewis events:
May 26 – Mr. Colvin’s Retirement Community Gathering at 3:30 p.m.
May 28 – Lewis School Concert at 6:30 p.m.
May 29 – Volunteer Breakfast at 8:00 a.m.
