Get Well Wishes

Last week I had surgery on my knee for torn cartilage. I want to thank the class for all the get well emails and pictures and for doing a good job for Ms. Arnott. I have had no pain, but I have to be on crutches for five weeks instead of the one or so originally thought. Luckily I know I have a great group of students who will help me out! Wednesday I go to the doctor again and will know more then.

Surgery seems to be a thing this month in our classroom. Welcome back to one student who missed last week for a procedure, and good luck to another who had to go in today! I am thinking good thoughts for both of you!

Thanks again for the notes, but how did you get them to print in color! :)

Reduce, Reuse, RECYCLE!

Today we went to the Emmet County Recycling Center. It was great to see where all of our recycled items go and how they are sorted and processed. We also learned more about how recycling helps our environment and our planet.

Today the ambassadors from Great Lakes Energy came to Charlevoix to teach us about electricity safety. It was awesome! We will always remember safety first! Thank you to GLE and to Mr. Russell for letting us use the bus garage and giving us a ride up there.
