 At the Silent Auction the Carr Family bid on the "Principal for the Day".  Major Carr was the winner and was my shadow for the day.  We walked all of the classes and wrote up observations in two.  We had lunch duty in the cafeteria. We checked on the picture schedule which was really off but it was being handled.  Thank you to all the parent volunteers helping with pictures. 
 Ryan Blaydon won lunch on stage with some of his 2nd grade friends.
 Mr. Carr and I observed Mrs. Mendrek's class in PE.  Mrs. Palmer was teaching students how to perform different gymnastic skills.  Here is one student on the parallel bars.
 Here students climb up the trestle.
 In the background a student is climbing the cargo net.
 They love the rock wall.  Both Mr. Carr and I like the rock wall as well if it was much higher.
 Students can either roll sideways down the tumbling mat or front ways.
 This picture shows students climbing the ropes and stall wall.  The ropes happen to be Mr. Carr's favorite gymnastic activity. 
Finally, Mrs. Palmer helps a student walk across the high balance beam.  This happens to be Mr. Carr's younger brother, Chapell. 

Mr. Carr stated that his favorite part of the day was walking through the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten classes because the students were all doing so many different and exciting activities.  He said that he didn't realize that I spent so much time walking around all the classes and that 5th grade lunch duty was frustrating because all the fifth graders talked way too much, mainly because he was one of them. It was great having an extra helper.  We had a great day. - Dr. Mitchell and Mr. Carr.
