We had our first bout with some cold symptoms this week in 78. I was away two days with a runny nose, and missed another because I needed to stay home with my son. We had at least a few students away each week, and finished off the week with 9 students away. Hopefully the long weekend will let us get back to full strength for next week.
We have some exciting news for next week, we have Reid Simmons joining us as a student teacher. Reid will be with us until November 6th. Reid attends Nipissing University, where he is completing teachers college. This is a neat experience for me as Reid’s parents both taught me when I was in high school. Reid will spend the first week and a half observing and helping in the class before working up to where he is teaching half of the day. After his 4 weeks this fall, Reid will be back February 15thand be with us until March 12th.
