HOLA SCHOFIELD!!!! Here are some of the things I miss about being in school. Please enjoy the videos I will be posting every few days by clicking on the link provided on the previous page.
🙂 I miss welcoming you in the morning on the blacktop, and talking to students about small things like their pets or an upcoming school event. I also miss my morning Tag crew. You know who you are. “Tag you’re it!”
🙂 I miss starting the morning announcements in Spanish and purposefully making a mistake each Wednesday to engage your Spanish skills.
🙂 I miss reading to the first graders and making them laugh with the funny voices I have for certain characters.
🙂 I miss musical Mondays and skateboarding around the cafe tables sprinkling fairy dust on everyone. I also miss making a basket while on my skateboard and hearing you all cheer.
🙂 I miss sitting at a few tables during lunch and having a casual conversation. We always have something to laugh about.
🙂 I miss seeing you in the hallway and noticing something new about you like a haircut, a cool pair of sneakers, or an awesome shirt with a unicorn on it.
🙂 I miss visiting classes and joining an open circle or book group or observing a math or science lesson. I always leave classes feeling so proud of your hard work.
🙂 I miss getting out to recess and hanging with the ultimate frisbee crew. You know I can toss that disc so far. I also miss throwing the football or watching a soccer game. We have so many talented athletes. It’s always fun being followed by our smallest students and hearing their stories about a game they are playing.
🙂 I miss helping you at the cross walk at the end of the day and wishing you a happy evening. Your smiles always make me happy.
🙂 There are hundreds of daily interactions that make me feel so happy and proud to be your principal. During this time away please know that I am thinking of you. I can’t wait until we return to school. Tomorrow (Friday) your teachers will have a morning message for you to let you know that they too are thinking of you. I hope you enjoy the website activities that we put together for you. Don’t forget to be a STAR student even at home and if or when you are feeling like you miss the school, sing our song. “ …we’re so happy Schofield is our school…”
🙂 A big hug…and one, two, three…release. We are all waiting for this to pass so that we can be together.
