1st Day of School

Monday, August 14, 2017

School started way too early this year. Dave is in his 17th year of teaching. He is the technology Humanities teacher at Gragson ES.

I am in my 12th year of teaching as the Librarian at Hummel ES.

Camryn is a Freshman at Silverado HS. She is in Student Council and taking Spanish, theater, and lots of Honors classes this year.

Seth is a 6th grader at Schofield MS. He is also taking Honors classes and got into Intermediate band, due to his drumming experience.

We went to Blaze Pizza to celebrate making it through the 1st day.

Sea Quest Aquarium

Saturday, August 12, 2017

One of our Pogo Pass activities was to visit a new aquarium that they had built into the old Boulevard Mall. We took Will with us. You had to buy tokens that you could exchange for things like food for the animals or food for people. Seth struggled to touch the iguanas. 


They had some stingrays and sharks. The boys were a little silly with the shark teeth and this giant turtle just roamed around with small children following after. 


We used most of our tokens to get nachos and drinks and as we left the boys fed these fish. They were like piranhas attacking when they threw the food in. 

As we were walking out, one of the workers talked the boys into holding this huge snake. They were totally freaked out but manned up and held the snake. 


The boys had a good time and faced some fears.

USUE Soccer

Lex went back to USUE for her sophomore year. They had a day where they had a photographer come for press photos.

These are cute.

This is intimidating.

Calling All Readers

August 2017

Hummel ES has been taken over by superheroes. I loved decorating the library this year. Here is the entry.

I made these paintings for the ends of the shelves.



Here is my behavior chart:

My Dewey Decimal board:

Each table is a superhero.

And I decorated the star sticks that clases earn for getting the most AR points each week.
