I Miss YOU

February 20, 2019
Has Minnesota gone mad?  What?  Another snow day?  Weird!  But now you can say you lived through the coldest polar vortex AND the snowiest February.  Do you feel special?

Today is actually a lovely day.  Get outside and play.  Maybe tomorrow we can get out and adapt our habitats.  Time will tell.  We may have to actually wait until Friday.  We shall see.

I wonder about the read a thon assembly.
I wonder about the Exploration Open Houses.
I wonder about how your day was with Mrs. Johnson.
I wonder if you miss me too.

Blog me.

See you tomorrow.

2 Days OFF!!

January 29, 2019
What are you going to do?

So it's pretty cold, or we'd be in school, so my usual, "Get outside and play!" won't really work.  But I do have a few ideas for your inside enjoyment.  IF you blog about doing these things you can have tickets as listed.

1.  Call and visit with your grandma or grandpa.  As a grandma I know how much grandma's love to talk to their grandkids.  Blog a comment about what you and your grandparent talked about and you can have 4 tickets.

2.  Bake cookies!  Of course, you sh...

It works!

January 21, 2019
From home.  I can't get to this page on the school network.  They are working on it.  Finally, I remembered to do it from home.  It works from home so I have evidence it's the school network, not the website.  Sheesh.

It's Martin Luther King, Jr. day.  We know what that means!  There is a blog ticket earning opportunity about this on the homework tab.  Check in red.

Did anyone go out and see the Blood Red Moon last night?  It was cold but really cool!!  I only saw pictures as I was a real baby ...

All About Me


Jamie Lyn Kovacs I am married to John Kovacs and have 5 sons, John age 34, Jim age 32, Joe age 28, Jake age 26, Vlad age 23. I also have 3 grandchildren, Jack and Lydia, who are the kids of my oldest son and his wife, and Kennedy who is the one year old daughter of my second son and his wife. The older kids are 6 and 4. 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 14th 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 has started free lance writing for many different publications. __________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 moved to Washington DC so he could attend George Washington University and get an MBA. This last summer he did an internship with the Washington Nationals baseball team for his MBA program. __________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. He is engaged to a darling girl named Molly who works at his same company. She is a game tester and plays the games the guys like Jake write. They are getting married January 2. _________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. He just got back from a semester in China and is back at RF for a 5th year. _________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 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.
