The Village Scoop Celebration!

Tomorrow afternoon, June 1st, I will be taking the kids in my class to the Village Scoop to celebrate the end of a great school year! We will walk there and back after lunch.  This is my treat for all of the hard work and dedication that the students in this room have shown throughout the year!

UMS Author Visit - Tracey Campbell Pearson

We were fortunate to have Tracey Campbell Pearson visit UMS yesterday and share her story of becoming a published author!  She has written many books such as Where Does Joe Go?, Myrtle, The Purple Hat, and my personal favorite, Bob.  Tracey shared her writing process and how real life inspires her stories.  She talked about how many steps it takes to publish a book and she shared how she became interested in becoming an author in the first place.  The kids learned so much and they were amazing audience members!!  Here are some pictures from her presentation!

UMS Fill A Bucket Day

Today was fill a bucket day at UMS! Everyone carries around an invisible bucket that gets filled with love as people are kind and thoughtful. However when someone is being mean or hurtful, it dips from your bucket leaving you sad, angry, or depressed.  We worked hard all day to lift our friends and teachers spirits. We even had real buckets to help remind us of our task today!
