We are thinking about another trip to the Memphis Orpheum - Phantom of the Opera is back!!! The elementary students were able to visit the Orpheum to see The Ugly Duckling (Lightwire) last month. They also visited the Pyramid Bass Pro Shop to bowl and enjoy pizza!! That's always a nice place for the students to visit. The elementary students will be taking part in a Japanese Tea Ceremony at the Memphis Botanical Gardens this spring. I'm sure that will be a great experience.
Next year will mark year 28 as an educator for me. I can't believe it has been that long. I've been in gifted education since 2001 and it's been a wild ride at times. I've worked with so many students and parents in many various programs. One of the most noted is Odyssey of the Mind. We are about to compete in another State Competition in April. I've been involved with OotM since 1988 and that's a long time. I don't even want to count up those years. lol
Remember to visit your child's teachers often and volunteer at the school when you can. We can always use OotM Coaches or Judges. Just let us know if you are interested. Since I'm beginning to ramble, I will sign off for now. I will try to stay better focused on the blogging. Happy spring!!!!
