Guess there are all kind of ways to start Spring Break, but I am not sure a 'blackout' the last 45 minutes of the day was the best way.  I can't imagine the students didn't say something when they go home, but the electricity here at OHE went out about 2:00.  The building can get pretty dark in places that don't have access to windows, like my office.  I bet the student who was in here with me thinks twice before he/she does something inappropriate again!  We were able to dismiss students on time but buses were very late getting students home and many parents got stuck in all the traffic that backed up.   Please know that someone will always be here until every last student is picked up and dropped off by the buses.  We will not leave any student alone!

Last Saturday the 5th Grade Volleyball team competed at UT.  I heard they did a great job and had lots of fun.

The 3rd graders had their annual "Living Museum".   Students selected individuals from the past or present to research.  The information learned was displayed on a board and students had to present the information to each other.  Many dressed up in costume.  Can you guess who they represent?

This week was Dr. Seuss's Birthday.  During library this week, students listened to many stories written by him.  Today during assembly, one of the Dr. Seuss characters made his annual visit.
Student Council also hosted "Be a Zoologist and bring a stuffed animal to school" day.  There were lots of stuffed animals in the gym this morning.  Some were even bigger than the students.

I hope everyone has a great Spring Break and does something exciting and fun.  See you back here on the 17th.  Anyone know when the last time we had school on St. Patrick's day was?
