Happy Birthday Ms. Chidgey

Sweet Sarah,
I am so happy to be surrounded by your spirit each day as I work with our MW students in the library dedicated in your memory. Our lives are definitely changed "for good" because of you.
Mrs. Lewis

"For Good" from Wicked
I've heard it said That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led To those who help us most to grow
If we let them And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you

Like a comet pulled from orbit As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

(Elphaba) It well may be That we will never meet again In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me Is made of what I learned from you
You'll be with me Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend...

Bluebonnet Reading begins

Third, fourth, and fifth grade students are being introduced to the 2012-2013 Bluebonnet books. There are so many fun and interesting titles by some outstanding authors! Students will report to a library worker (Mrs. Lewis or PTA volunteer)when they have read a Bluebonnet book. Each student will bring his or her tracking sheet to the library for the library worker to initial after asking a few questions about the book. Our goal is for all third, fourth, and fifth grade students to read the required FIVE books by January to be eligible to vote. Let's get reading!!!
