A Fun Monday Packed with Learning and Good Times!

February 23, 2015

The experiences that I had today in our schools are perfect examples of how educators go above and beyond every day to make learning fun and engaging for their students.  Each year our teachers and administrators arrange for visitors to spend time with our students, and they always look forward to it.  Today we had the honor of a visit from  Illinois’ 10th District Senator, John G. Mulroe.  Washington students had fun coming up with proposed legislation and acting out how a bill becomes a law.  They had a thoughtful and lively debate session facilitated by Senator Mulroe, and I was very proud of them!

The fourth and fifth graders also had the opportunity to meet published author, PJ Hartenaus, who spoke to the students about finding their own stories to tell as writers.  They have been reading The Belden Boy Series at school, so hearing directly from the author on how she created these stories was a great opportunity!

Finally, I had the pleasure of being at the right place at the right time at Lincoln Middle School today!  Mr. Amsler and some very brave teachers were good sports, and let the students throw pies at them to raise money for the Luekemia and Lymphoma Society.  I was lucky enough to buy the last pie sold for the cause, and couldn’t resist throwing that pie at Mr. Amsler!

There are countless special experiences that happen each week that are special to your child, and I am so grateful to be part of them!
