It’s probably my imagination, but this school year seems to be “flying by” and I find myself quite surprised to be contemplating first report cards already! I sent home a note yesterday about the many activities we have coming up in the next three weeks and I know my parents are also busy with sports and other family obligations. I don’t know how they do it all!
Daylight saving time doesn’t end until November 2, so I find myself going to work in the dark. Although I don’t have SAD, as some of you do, I still prefer to come and go in the daylight. I offer my condolences to those of you will be severely affected by the coming changes in our daily light patterns. Darkness depresses…
Next week is Fire Prevention week. Make sure you check your heaters and fireplaces, check or install smoke detectors, think about escape plans, and talk to your children about fire safety. Two of my relatives died in house fires, and others have been seriously injured, so it’s often on my mind.
Candy, candy, candy! It’s everywhere! Tried the M&M’s White Chocolate Candy Corn. Beyond sweet! Wow!
And of course, who can change the calendar to October without thinking about Halloween? My students are already talking about their costumes!
It's going to be a busy month. Let’s stay safe and sane!
