A Monday Hello from Mrs. MacQueen

March 4, 2013

wse032013 1eOn Tuesday of last week I drove to work and was thrilled to see a hot air balloon circling our school. Brian Boland, a local hot air balloon enthusiast and his partner, Jeff Johnson built a special balloon to bring the joy of flying to kids around the world. The program titled "Hands Around the World" will take their balloon to South America for a month where they'll visit schools in Costa Rica, Panama and Nicaragua.

Our students had the opportunity to leave their marks on the "World" balloon by tracing their hands and writing messages on it.


wse032013 5eWe even got to stand inside the balloon. It was hard to believe, but it happened —our entire school got in the balloon together! Thanks to Brian and Jeff for giving us the chance to be a part of such a great
program.

This week I'll be finishing my "Quality Work" discussions. I've been meeting with each class to talk about expectations for doing their best work. Keep a watch for soon your child may be bringing home a Quality Work certificate and magnet!
