In a very short period of time nearly 800 students will be descending upon Woodland Jr. High and those seats that are empty in the picture above will be filled with my 2011-12 crop of McClungsters. While our school year will officially get started on Monday the 15th, I can’t help but feel like that we were just in school a short time ago…oh wait, that’s because we were. Nevertheless, we move forward with a full head of steam and ready to take on a school year and all that comes with it. For me personally, I have had a great summer and tons of wonder experiences from my summer that I plan on using/sharing in my classroom instruction. So with just a couple of days of summer vacation left, make sure to soak it up because it’s going to be a long haul once we kick off the new year.
