The Magic of October

I don't know exactly what it is about October, maybe it is our state fair comes to town (YUM GIANT CORN DOG) , the heat is being extinguished, there is Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING and all of a sudden (*WAH-LA*)  MAGIC the kids "get it." I can't put my finger what "IT" is but "IT" is there.The procedures are set in place, we have practiced, done and succeeded at centers, and the first progress report has gone out. In Oklahoma students begin getting A-F's so it can be a shocker at first when parents see the first "C" or even Dun-Dun-Dun "F". I love explaining how much parents need to be involved and ask questions. I remind them that I have been sending home items/projects for the family to do as a family.  I always see such a big improvement in kids AND parents after that first progress report. I really love having parents involved and more so involved in their children's lives. I was so lucky to have a mom & dad that pushed me, asked questions and was my support system. They really are the best and I am one lucky gal!

My Mommy & Daddy ROCK!!!
