At School Missing You

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Thursday, February 28, 2013,
It's not that fun to be at school when you guys aren't here.  I am having fun connecting and planning with Ms. Schiele and Ms. Stamson but otherwise...not that fun.

A couple fun things coming up!  Monday we are going to do a fun I LOVE TO READ thing with Schiele's class.  They are going to wear pajamas.  Do you want to?  Wear them if you want.  In any event, wear cozy things like sweats or warm up pants.  We are going to get comfy.   Blog a comment about what you are going to wear on Monday so...

Snafu over Specialist Time

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Wednesday, February 20, 2013,
Mrs. Mielke and I figured out how the misunderstanding occured.  She gave you lots of compliments and said you were very well behaved and fantastic role models during the practice.  She went on to say you are turning out to be one of her favorite classes.  Way to go guys.  Thanks for helping out in a difficult situation.  You made the most of it and for that we are grateful.

Tomorrow is DARE and then the performance of the show in the afternoon.  Don't let me forget to take the TRAIN poster p...

6/24 or 1/4 Shoveled Today

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Tuesday, February 12, 2013,

We tried to shovel but we didn't get very far.  Calling any and all adults who would like to give it a whirl--we are accepting help!!  We need to get the heavy snow off the rink so the sun can melt the weird crust that has formed on top of our nice ice.  I scraped some crust off today and there is nice ice underneath.

We saw really cool animal tracks in the ice today.  Way cool how they are imbedded in the ice and snow crust.

Have a great evening and stop by and scrape or shovel if you have the...

Monday's Are Rough

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Monday, February 11, 2013,

Based on the reports at morning meeting it sounds like we ALL had a busy, exhausting weekend.  That probably adds to the roughness of the Monday morning.  Oh well, I thought we had a great day and it really flew by.  I love those actors who put on the one person show.  Wasn't the woman today FANTASTIC?!  I thought she was. 

Tomorrow we will work more on our written interview.  It is not due yet.

Have your math homework from the weekend here and ready to go, please.  We will get to it tomorrow...

Fa La La La La

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Friday, February 8, 2013,
I am going to the Tonic Sol Fa concert tonight.  I am really pumped.  They are an a cappella group that is funny and fun and silly and pretty good!  I just like to be doing something different than a movie or whatever I usually do.

Cody was amazing in his hockey game last night.  Good luck to him and his team the rest of the weekend in the Moose Goheen Tournament.  I hope to see Noah tomorrow night.  I will have my nieces with me as I am babysitting all weekend long.  Good luck to the team wit...

Compliments from Dr. Lovett

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Wednesday, February 6, 2013,
Isn't it fun to get compliments from the big guy who is in charge of the whole school district?  Really fun!  You know how I feel about it--I love you and I want eveyone else to also!!

Hopefully tomorrow we will get back outside.  I think I was a ton more sluggish and tired all because we didin't go outside today.  Tomorrow we are out for sure.

Have a great night.  Train presentations and friendship skits the rest of the week.     Mrs. Kovacs

Tomorrow we will go back outside so bring those skates if you like.  I will try to get out there and shovel, we'll see how that goes.

Big Super Bowl Excitement

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Friday, February 1, 2013,
I can't wait for Sunday to see who wins.  Mr. Oppenheim grew up in Baltimore so of course he is a Raven's fan.  I think I would be a Vikings fan even if I moved to somewhere else.  I hope it is an exciting game and now that I know Mr. O is such a big fan I am kind of cheering for the Ravens.  Go Ravens.

It was really fun to prank his class but I will say I think some of us got a bit carried away and so we will need to think long and hard before we can try to prank someone again.  Do you know w...
