Five for Friday: The time has come....

LOL... I had to send this to my secretary when I started getting a little ancy this week while working in my room =)

The time has come for the summer to finish and meet my new kinders next week. I'm always so sad to see my days with the boys end but then I feel the new energy of starting a new group of superheroes! It seems like I tried to squeeze a lot in these past few days...physicals, orientation, exit interview for the class I took, etc. Here is a brief synopsis of my five for Friday!

I got all of my favorite back to school books out for the kids next week. I'm sure you see some of your favorites too. Our reading theme this year is about leading the way to reading so our fantastic librarians have been filling the building with superheroes. I will also be carrying it into our room. I went in for quite a bit this week just to clean and throw out before setting all of my goodies out.  Next week, I will show you the final product. The biggest item I got rid of was my desk. Let's face Kindergarten, who has time to sit down?! I never used it and the thing was ginormous! Seriously, it took both my husband and I to move it out because it was very old and heavy. This leads me to number two....

I still needed to find something to store all of my little things in and I found this little number at JoAnn's. It was a great find! They are 40% off this week AND you can get an additional 15% off if you are a teacher. SCORE!!

You know when you pull out of your school parking lot on that very last day and you have this big list of things you want to accomplish while you are home? I desperately needed to straighten our basement out. I was too embarrassed to post a before picture because it was horrible.  So now we are down to the last week and I still had not checked this one off. I spent an afternoon organizing and throwing out plus I probably could have thrown a lot more out but didn't ( I will have to wait until the hubby is out of town to get rid of it because it is mostly his junk. I say junk but really it's his prized possessions as in baseball cards and magazines =). I hope the kids go down there more often now.

Our school district just completed an AMAZING sports complex that is set to open on Saturday. There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony and then all of the sports teams were given times to test the field out. We checked it out today and found our brick that we donated. Kids were psyched to see their names =)

I don't know about your schools but teachers start back on Monday and we have Open House that very evening. I put this little number together to make it all go very smoothly. There are volunteering, conference, and get to know you forms plus so much more. Feel free to check it out in my shop!

Have a wonderful weekend and best wishes for a fantastic school year!

  5. I have searched so many JoAnns and Michaels for that very container with no luck! It is a great organizer to use!

  6. Congrats on crossing your basement off your to-do list! It's such a daunting task and mine has been hanging over my head all summer. Yours turned out great! :) Hopefully I'll find the motivation I need to get mine done too before the end of summer! :)
