Dear Families,

As we approach the end of October, I would like to express my high regard for our children. They are such a joy for me to work with each and every day. While I was away in Greece, I missed them and returned to find that they had successfully managed themselves both professionally and personally. It felt like returning home; home to a place full of laughter, happiness and community. Thank you for sharing your wonderful children with me.

I spent my time in Athens learning and reviewing the NESA Virtual Science Fair for 5th grade. I gained some very useful insight and information. I am happy to share that we will be participating in the Science Fair once again this year. It is my hope that at least one additional 5th grade class will also have the opportunity to participate with us. We will not begin our scientific work until January so please expect more information when we return from Winter Break.

As a child, I remember my parents taking me to the State or County Fair each fall. My fondest memories are of the lively music, exuberant crowds and the rows upon rows of booths lined up for my delight. Each booth contained enchantments that mesmerized my senses. The game booths beckoned me to play, each with colorful prizes waiting for me to take for my own. The food booths tantalized me with their aromas of sweet and greasy treats. Oh, and the music…The music was loud and inviting pulsating with life and energy. The entertainment seemed endless with variety shows and compelling acts. Everywhere I turned would be another enticing feast for my senses…

Oktoberfest promises to be such an event. I can hardly wait to transport myself back to some of the wonderment of my childhood. I invite you to join our entire ACS community this Saturday – Halloween – October 31st from 11:00 – 4:00 @ ACS.

Thank you in advance for the treats you will send in by Wednesday. The Halloween celebration will actually start on Friday. We will have our annual costume parade on the roof. Please send your child to school in costume. All costumes must be appropriate for school and will be worn only for the duration of the parade. (Unless it is suitable for the remainder of the day.)
Thanks for all of your support.
Spookily Yours,
Ms. Amy Branch

About the Blogger

Ever since I was a child, I wanted to travel the world and to make a difference in other people's lives. I truly didn't believe I would become a teacher though; however, I am so glad that I am 5D's teacher! I am originally from Washington state but have enjoyed living in both West Africa and Lebanon. I am very blessed to have lived such an incredible life thus far.
