Ok – here I am tootin’ my kids’ horns again but… toot toot!  This has been a great school year, after a couple of super challenging school years.  So it comes as a delicious surprise that the kids got a bunch of awards and accolades last week.  Zoe won ‘first place’ in her gymnastics team!  And a day before that, Ezra got an ‘outstanding’ ranking on his NYSSMA audition for drums.  I’m also in shock that they are managing to maintain good grades, even now as the weather warms up and water gun wars are heating up ‘in the alley’ after school.  Have a great weekend!

The walls and bulletin boards are jam-packed with all sorts of cool projects: all about pulleys on the science board, heroes on the writing board, Spanish and English key words and 3D shape facts on the Math board. I don’t think I was doing this much in second grade! But it all looks so fun, I kinda wish I could go back to grade school. We will miss this sweet little school when Zoe leaves this late spring. Ezra went through here up until 2nd grade as well, and we wished we could keep them in this warm, nurturing, creative environment forever. (Plus they let this mamma come in and add some creative flair to backdrops and bulletin boards sometimes.. which I love). But it’s off to ‘bigger girl school’ in the fall – thankfully many of her classmates will be going with her.
