Wednesday Wisdom

Summer's nearly here, that gift for all.

Would it be a dip in the pool, ice cream,
or outings at the park, it's all good.

Some new opportunities lie ahead
during summer.  Be grateful,
be kind, be introspective.
Be a part of love and learning all summer!

He Warned Me

A shout-out" to my colleague
Mr. Griffin Groves for
introducing this title to me.  

He warned me that I would cry; I did.
Barbara Park gave us all a treasure with
this story.  You owe it to yourself and to your
customers to read it and talk about it in class.
