It’s been a busy Friday here at Miller! Right before early morning bus duty, a Kinder friend started my day by sharing her homework entitled, “SnowCowGirl.” Her assignment was to dress a snowperson at home and write about her for the class. Although you can’t tell from the picture here, this creation was truly a 3-D event! Thanks, Pressley, for sharing your vision so eloquently with me!
An elementary principal friend from another district spent the morning with me touring our beautiful building, sharing ideas, and “talking school shop.” We wandered through classrooms and one student, upon introduction, commented: “You mean you’re good enough Mrs. Van to have other principals come see you at Miller?” 🙂 Another young friend, Daniel, was working quietly to build something special during centers. After he finished, he told his teacher, “Hey, I’m the principal of this school and this is my office.” He then picked up the phone to talk with a parent while typing on his computer. 🙂
I was reminded from all these opportunities today how important it is for us to share with one another—share our ideas, our dreams, our successes, and our celebrations. More importantly though, I was truly blessed today to listen to others as they shared. Here’s hoping you find some special opportunities to share this weekend! Happy Friday!
Note: Students will enJOY a school holiday on Monday, January 16, 2012. We will see everyone on Tuesday morning!
