Ah, the first day of school! It was busy and exciting but yet oddly calm. The group we had in 8th grade last year was very difficult and already I can see this year's group may be a much-needed breath of fresh air.
This year, we've become a PBIS school. Our slogan is "We show wildcat PRIDE!" The kids are getting a lesson last period each day this week on one of the 5 words. They really got into the lesson on being prepared and had some great ideas to share. "Miss B," one of them asked, "does taking a shower count as being prepared?" Oh my goodness, yes! My class is adorable!
