FIELD DAY TODAY!
If your Kindergartner came home tired this afternoon, it may have something to do with our Field Day this morning.   Thanks to Ms. Schwartzkoph, or Phys. Ed. Teacher, we had a great Field Day with eight different stations.

I Hope You All Had A Great Memorial Day Weekend.
Every morning our kindergarten class writes a story to a picture that I have waiting for them on the easel.  They really enjoyed writing this morning.  Ask your kindergartner to tell you today's story.

Story

kindergarten Teacher at James John School, St. Johns Oregon
Introduction
In room 40 we believe that important work is being done every day.  We think our work is so important, that everyone should be able to see it anytime they want. In our class we believe in making our public education public and celebrating our learning by publishing it online. We believe that our learning is more than just a number on a state report. We believe there is a much more compelling educational narrative to be told. Follow our learning.

Great place for PSU all day study groups. Bad place if you aren't planning on spending 45 min - an hour. waiting for your food. Even for McMenamins, this place is sloooooooooooooooooow.
