Ash Wednesday

Today we celebrated Ash Wednesday.  This marks the beginning of our Lenten journey.  This year's Lent theme is "Virtues For Lent."  What virtues will you work on for Lent?  Self-control, patience, forgiveness? As we move through the Lent season, we will be focusing on many virtues.  For myself, I am always working to be a better person and to be closer to Christ.  This year for Lent I wanted not to focus so much on "giving up" something, but focus more on what I can do to become a better person and help those around me.  I encourage everyone to think about the virtues this Lent.

Red and White Day & Volleyball

Today our classroom was a sea of red and white.  We also had some very special visitors during our morning.  The Open House was from 9am-11am this morning.  In English, we are beginning a unit on adjectives.  Today we drew pictures and then labeled them with adjectives.  It was a lot of fun.  This afternoon was the annual student vs. staff volleyball game.  I am proud to say the teachers brought their "A" game and won 3 to 0!  The 4th graders were cheering us on.  Tomorrow is "Spartan Way T-Shirt" day and pizza lunch.  Here are pictures from today.  Enjoy!
