Today I was notified at school that I will be receiving the Mary G. Lee Principal's Award this Thursday at the fifth grade award ceremony. Mary G. Lee was the very first principal at my school (Eleanor Roosevelt Elementary), and the award is given each year to a fifth grade girl who shows creativity, effort, and leadership. I'm really proud... I never saw this coming!
We were also given our schedules for fall.
1st/2nd Period - English and Language Arts
3rd Period - Math
4th Period - P.E.
5th Period - Science
6th Period - Social Studies (History)
7th Period - Reading
I got another surprise on my schedule... I was placed in GATE/Honors. GATE stands for Gifted and Talented Education, and you know what Honors means. Since when am I smart? LOL It turns out that Claire (yes, the mean one) is in 1st/2nd, 4th, and 7th with me. UGH!! I called Nicki (who got her schedule in the mail) and she's in 1st/2nd, 3rd, and 6th with me. We get along pretty well now, so I'll be glad to have her in my classes. But Claire? YUCK! No thank you.
It will indeed be an interesting three years at Antongiovanni Middle School.
Until next time,
