Today is Trevor's first day of 5th grade, which is the best grade of all! I am so excited for him and hope he has a spectacular year. I think he will.
Trevor's school does something neat that I wish we'd done when I was a teacher. The incoming 5th graders are invited to come the day before school starts to decorate the pavement at the front of the school with chalk. These messages and drawings welcome all the TK-4th grade students to the school. Here's Trevor with his principal and four classmates.
The kids filled the squares with colorful welcome messages, helpful hints, the school motto, and the school mascot.
Some of the parents helped too. I made this block about using your WITS to work out problems.
I also made this one about the the 3 Be's: Be safe, be kind, and be responsible.
