Happy Thanksgiving!

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Wednesday, November 26, 2014,
Check the student tab for pictures of science day, the science fair, and our Thanksgiving Taste Fest.  Wow!  We really crammed a lot into a short 3 day week.

Yes, you got some math homework for the long weekend.  And it's too much to do all in one sitting.  Do a page a day and you should have no trouble getting 'er done.  Some of it's fun (toss coins with Uncle Bob), some of it's remembering, and some of it is test prep for the MCA test.  You can't start thinking about that too soon, ha ha.

Short Week Ahead!

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Sunday, November 23, 2014,
Oh my, this year really is flying by.  It's Thanksgiving next week.  Does your family have the turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, squash, sweet potatoes, the whole 9 years?  We used to.  Then about 5 years ago we looked at each other and said, "I don't even like turkey!"  And with that we started to have ham.  Honey baked ham.  Not this year.  This year we are having flank steak.  I can't wait!!  It's very freeing to give up the really intense menu and go to just what your family...

Big Hero 6 Big Hit

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Saturday, November 15, 2014,
16 kids from my class, several (4+) siblings a couple sets of parents and even a grandma or two showed up to the theater to watch Big Hero 6 last night.  Really fun.  I added a pic of SOME of us to the student tab.  It was hard to round everyone up as there was popcorn to be purchased, seats to find, bathrooms to use and friends to hook up with.  But we all made it in and enjoyed the show.  The November "Outing with Mrs. K" was a huge success and a really great time.  Be thinking of what we s...

Bundle Up!

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Tuesday, November 11, 2014,
It's feels as if winter has arrived and plans to stay.  This does not mean we will stay inside, it just means you need to bundle up.  Bring hats, mittens, boots, snow pants and the like to school so you can adapt to the cold weather and still be toasty warm.  

I was just kicking back and watching Monday night football when I realized I hadn't updated the website.  Sorry.  Doing it now.

Joe is going to be at school again tomorrow--this time for Mrs. Triggs.  That will be fun for us again, right?...

Weekend Fun

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Friday, November 7, 2014,
The kids were talking about another Outing with Mrs. Kovacs and we are tenatively looking at Nov. 14 to see the movie Big Hero 6.  I promise it won't always be movies but they are pretty excited so it may be a movie again this time.  We will get to bowling, ice skating and other things, I promise.

It is starting to get cold but that just means bundle up, not stay inside.  Kids need fresh air so we will continue to head outside.  We will be adapting our clothing and our habitats to the weather....

All About Me


Jamie Lyn Kovacs I am married to John Kovacs and have 5 sons, John age 33, Jim age 31, Joe age 26, Jake age 24, Vlad age 22. I also have 3 grandchildren, Jack and Lydia, who are the kids of my oldest son and his wife, and Baby Kennedy who is the newborn of my second son and his wife. The older kids are 5 and 2. My family lives in White Bear Lake. ____________My son John is married and lives in Turkey with his wife Pamela and son Jack and daughter Lydia. Hey, that makes me a grandmother--yikes! John is a teacher too. A couple years ago he taught at White Bear Lake but for the last couple years he's been teaching social studies to middle school kids at Hope Academy in Minneapolis. He also has taken classes at a seminary. He wrote a book called "The Historia" which you can buy on Amazon.com. He was a hockey player and played college hockey at Bethel. His wife is a lawyer worked at a big law firm in Minneapolis. Cool! Hey, guess what. I am a lawyer too!! This will be my 13th year teaching as I practiced law for over 15 years. Teaching is way more fun!! Now they are living in Turkey and simply trying to learn the language and make connections. This year my son will be teaching high school world history at an international school. __________My son Jim lives in Blaine with his wife Courtney. They both graduated from Winona State where they were star pitchers on their baseball and softball teams. Jim graduated from St. Thomas School of Law. He clerked for a judge and now he works for a law firm in Golden Valley. His wife graduated from Des Moines University Medical School where she studied to be a physical therapist. She works for Twin Cities Orthopedics. You can check out pictures of their wedding on the summer vacation tab. __________My son Joe graduated from Moorhead State. He, like his brothers was a good athlete and loved sports. He also is a great singer and performer and was Danny Zuko in Grease, Gaston in Beauty and the Beast, and Curly in Oklahoma--all in WBL high school. He has a teaching license and did some long term subbing in WBL most recently at Hugo Elementary School. Next he worked at Infinite Campus training teachers on software that his employer makes. He got to travel all over the United States. He is married to Emily, and there are pictures of them you can check out on the vacation tab as well. Emily is a pharmacist for CVS in Targets. They just moved to Washington DC so he could attend George Washington University and get an MBA. __________My son Jake graduated from University of Minnesota with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science. He is a superstar in math. He was a TA for a professor in the computer science department. He really likes to golf and was on the White Bear Lake golf team. He worked at Gem Lake so if you ever golf there, you may have seen Jake. Do you like golf? As soon as he graduated he started working full time at a company that writes online computer games. He spends his day writing code to create games. He loves that kind of writing, do you? He taught many of my students to write code in Scratch. _________Vlad officially became our son in June of 2010 although we have loved him since we met him a couple years before that. We traveled to his homeland, Latvia, 3 times to make him ours. He has been living with us since March of 2010. He graduated from WBL High School too. He traveled to China with the high school a couple years ago and wants to go back. Can you believe that you can travel with your classmates and friends when you are in high school? He is currently a senior at the University of Wisconsin, River Falls. He spent a semester in Seoul, S. Korea in a study abroad program through River Falls. We will officially be empty nesters. _________My husband John works for Collins Electrical Company as a project manager but he is amazing with computers. He set up this web site for me!! Thanks John. He is the IT guy for my mom, his parents, and our whole family!! My husband and I have a cute teddy bear puppy who is 1 and a half years old. He is very spoiled.
