Just checking in...

Thought I'd check the blog to say "Hi" and let you know I'm thinking about you all. I imagine you're all busy as can be with school and families. Conferences are coming up and I feel like I don't even know my students well enough yet to say anything of value. Does anyone else feel like that?

There's been more sadness--unfortunately, a 5th grade student at Franklin became very ill from pneumonia (not H1N1) and passed away last night. It was terribly sad for the staff and students who knew her. For those of us who didn't know her, it broke our hearts to see the pain that everyone is feeling. Why is it that grief seems to be reoccurring far too often lately?

I think it's about time for another get together; maybe after conferences are over we could figure out something fun to do.

Take care of YOU!

Hi Debbie,

I'm so sorry to hear about your student who passed away. That's so sad. I've been really sick myself, I missed work Wednesday and Friday. I tried to work Thursday and it just about killed me. It has been a rough start to the year, I've been feeling kind of down but I know things will get better. I guess I just don't know my students well enough yet either. Anyways, I really want to get together again soon since I missed the last meeting. Take care...Paige

I'm sorry to hear about this sad news.

Thank goodness that the building has such dedicated and caring teachers to help the community work through this event.

Yet one more reminder of the importance of supporting each other.
