School is out for SUMMER!!

We wrapped up our year with a trip to the bowling alley! I had forgotten how much fun bowling can be! The kids had a blast! The lady in the pink shirt is Mrs. Charlotte, one of our teacher's aides.....she is sooo much fun to hang out with! The kids love her and I do too!

Portland Elementary Sixth Grade Graduation!

Well, tonight was the big night! All 26 sixth graders walked across the stage to receive their diplomas and go on to Junior High! This is my big responsibility for the year as the sixth grade homeroom teacher, so I was glad everything went well and a special thanks goes out to my hubby for helping me tonight!!=)

P.S. The little one in the cake picture is ,Reid, our first grade teacher's son! He was our special helper!

Sixth Grade Graduation Trip to Ferndale

Last week ,I bravely took my 26 Sixth graders on an overnight trip to celebrate their graduation from Portland Elementary! We went to the State 4-H center outside of Little Rock and they had a really great time!It is so pretty there and the staff are wonderful! They get to meet all the other sixth graders from other schools in our district that they will go to Junior High with next year! I think knowing some familiar faces makes Junior High seem a little less intimidating! Here are some pics of the trip!
