Today we met Mr. Scott Thompson! He has many jobs in our community. Besides being Olivia's daddy, he is a pilot and a farmer. He brought "Cookie" a 10 month old goat from their family farm, Thompson Farms, to meet us today! Cookie was so kind to let us all pet him! Thank you for sharing with us today!

Teachers, I want to encourage you to check out Donor's Choose! This year, I submitted a proposal for the first time to raise support to purchase steno pads, card stock and new crayons for our classroom. With the kindness and generousity of local community members we met our goal! I'd like to thank these donors who made it possible for each child to have their own steno pad in my class this year.
Thank you for your generosity!

Mr. Johnny Calder, our principal, came as our very first special guest. We did such a great job taking notes and being fabulous reporters. Mr. Calder helped us understand what a huge responsibility it is to run a school! We role played to gain a new perspective on how challenging his job can be! We also enjoyed hearing about Mr. Calder's family, hobbies and past. How lucky we were to have Mr. Calder give up time in his very busy schedule to come and be interviewed by our class!

Sgt. Bart Viers came to our classroom today as Tristan's special guest. He is Tristen's dad.
Sgt. Viers is a solider in the National Guard. He explained what it is like to be a solider who is far away from his family while protecting our country. He gave the class money from Iraq and a flag to help us remember and honor those who are protecting our freedom. He was a very special guest and we enjoyed his interview.
