First Day of School - Thursday, 8/17

Today was a good start to the school year!

Students were busy with their beginning of the year activities after we went over rules and the classroom set-up.

Tomorrow is their first P.E. class. Since the P.E. teacher, Mr. Cross, will begin at 8:10, students will be brought into the classroom, lunch count and attendance will be taken, then I will bring them out to the black top.

Just a friendly reminder: clothing appropriate for running around, jumping, stretching, general exercises, etc. is recommended as is a water bottle (with your child's name on it).

Chris Colfer is Coming!

Hicklebee's Header

Wednesday, July 26 at 7 p.m.
at the Hammer Theatre Centre

Bestselling author and Glee star Chris Colfer will bring his sixth and final The Land of Stories book to a Hicklebee's audience. Order tickets now (the book is included in the $22 price) for this event which will feature a reading from Chris, audience Q&A, Land of Stories Trivia, a costume contest, and prizes.
worlds Everyone attending this offsite event at the downtown Hammer Theatre Centre (the "blue cube" that formerly housed San Jose Rep) must have a ticket. Each ticket includes a pre-signed copy of The Land of Stories: Worlds Collide and a raffle ticket. Fans who attend in costume will receive an additional raffle ticket. Raffle tickets enter fans in a drawing for an exclusive VIP meet-and-greet with Chris immediately following the event. Five lucky readers (and one guest each) will have a chance to meet Chris, snap photos, and get their book personalized.

In the highly anticipated conclusion to the Land of Stories series, twins Conner and Alex will try to restore order in a world where all the fairy tale characters--heroes and villains alike--are no longer confined in their stories. There will be breathtaking action mixed with laugh-out-loud moments. Hollywood is waiting with as much excitement as Chris's fans.
