First Days of School
The Janesville-Waldorf-Pemberton School District has experienced a great start to the 2014-2015 school year. We had over 600 students report to school on Tuesday, September 2, 2014. Students went over classroom rules, behavior expectations, syllabi, and many other items during their first day. Every year the first day of school brings along a fun story to tell people. This year's story is as follows:
A kindergartener was confused about how to get home after school. After questioning, this student assured us that they rode the bus to school. We were confident the student rode the bus to school and more than likely rode the bus home. The student was asked if they remembered what bus they rode to school and the student replied with a confident 'yes'. When asked which bus, the student replied, "the yellow one." As you might imagine, that description did not narrow the field down. Kindergarteners are always exciting!
This week has been extremely warm in the building and we are thankful today is going to be much cooler. On Thursday the 4th I took a walk around the building checking on various rooms for temperature readings. Many of the classrooms I walked in were uncomfortably warm. Our students and teachers deserve great kudos for making the absolute best of a not so great situation.
Thank you to all families for sharing your children with us! We are fortunate and honored to serve them.
Have a great weekend!
