Open House 2014


Did you think I fell off the wagon already? Not so! I have four drafts ready to go, so brace yourselves for some more posts on WWTW, Close Reading, and Genius Hour this weekend!

So, the stations worked out pretty well I think at Open House, even though it was a bit messy for me. I like controlled situations, so having people milling around like a party was kind of disconcerting, and I was worried I didn't get to talk to everyone that I wanted to. I'm not sure if I'll do it again next year, so I'll have to rethink this a bit to make it more organized for my taste!

In addition to stations, I put out examples of 7th grade activities for parents to see...

I also set out Writer's Notebooks and ISN's from the previous year for parents to peruse. They really seemed to enjoy reading their children's thoughts and "100 Things" they love!




Here's how the room looked.

The giving tree was a bit hidden, so not a lot of "bites" on the apples. See what I did there? :)

What did you do for Open House/Back to School Night? This is a great night, but also very stressful for me, I'm better talking to kids I think!

I would like to share my experience with you guys on how I got a loan of $185,000.00 USD to clear my bank draft and start up a new business. It all started when i lost my home and belongings due to the bank draft I took to offset some bills and some personal needs. I became so desperate and began to seek for funds at all means. Luckily for me I heard a colleague of mine talking about this company, I got interested although i was scared of being scammed, I was compelled by my situation and had no choice than to seek advise from my friend regarding this very company and was given their contact number, getting intouch with them really made me skeptical due to my past experience with online lenders, little did i know this very Company "PROGRESSIVE LOAN INC. was a godsent to me and my family and the entire Internet World, this company has been of great help to me and some of my colleague and today am a proud owner of well organized business and responsibilities are well handled all thanks to Josef Lewis of (progresiveloan@yahoo.com).. So if really you are genuinely in need of a loan either to expand or start up your own business or in any form of financial difficulty, i advise you give Mr Josef Lewis of Progressive loan the opportunity of financial upliftment in your life Email: progresiveloan@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565 and not fall victim of online scam in the name of getting a loan. thanks
