First Day of School!

Hooray- we made it through the first day of school!  Though it was a little hectic in the morning all in all today was a success.  I enjoyed seeing returning students and getting to know the new ones.  I think we’re going to have a great year.
Today students set short term goals for the academic year, and long terms goals for after high school.  Students wrote these goals on strips of papers which I then turned into a paper chain.  The paper chain is now hanging in my classroom and will hopefully serve as a reminder of why hard work and doing your best is important. 
Our chain of goals.  The giant book will be used later.
