  • Now is the time to start thinking about Thanksgiving

    The month of October is officially over and with that comes a lot of terminations and culminations. Marching band season ended with a bang; we made it to state finals and finished second. I’m so proud of our kids. Daylight savings is just four days away, no more 8 p.m. sunsets. The colder weather has slowly but surely started, at least in the morning, before sunrise at the bus stop.

    Like many of you, I am already planning Thanksgiving dinner. I try to cook one new thing every year while maintaining the core standards of turkey, stuffing, etc.

    When the doors to the playground spring open at 3:15 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, students, ranging in age from first through fifth grade, burst from the school and settle into a steady pace as they race around the sidewalks circling the play area.

    From lanky, knobby-kneed 10-year-olds to chubby cheeked second graders, the children run or walk for the next 45 minutes. But, as children tend to do, the exercise they are getting is disguised by the fun they are having.
