Back To School!

It's back to school for Bennett County Teachers!!! We have been meeting with our colleagues today discussing a variety of "back to school" issues, as well as getting our classrooms ready for the Martin Grade School open house tonight from 5-7 pm!

Children will arrive excited and with smiles on their faces Wednesday morning! I know for myself, I need to pay special attention to getting to bed at a good time, so that I don't wimp out after lunch! I am also going to be faithful to regular exercise and healthy eating to get the best out of every day!

We will be sharpening up our keyboarding skills in Technology these first few weeks. Then students will be moving on to a variety of skills including, working with the programs found in Microsoft Office, blogging dos and don'ts and and looking at the advances in technology that has happened even in their short lifetimes!

In music, we will be moving, singing, and beginning to learn more about the writing of our national anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner by Francis Scott Key. Our national anthem was written in the midst of the War of 1812 on September 14, 1814. Stay tuned for more information about this historical time in our nation's history.

Have a great week everyone!
