    I had a meeting at my new school yesterday, and there was also a meeting for the school's 50th anniversary. A bunch of parents are on the 50th committee and they brought their kids. The secretary got on the PA and requested all 7th and 8th graders to come to the office. It was so exciting to meet my kids!

    A newsletter with the new teacher information was sent out, and since then the kids have been talking and texting about how to say my name (it's long and Polish). I earned cool points because I told them they can call me Ms. S!

    I cannot wait to go back to school! :D

    And I'm liking the secretary for making it happen.

    When you get the chance, drop her a thank you or call and do it.

    Alice, I am doing one better...we are both from the Midwest and lived in Polish areas of our cities. I am ordering the world's greatest kielbasa from my hometown and I am bringing some in for her!

    I am working at a Catholic school that has this wonderfully warm sense of community. Parents and kids are popping in all summer. It's really an exciting place to be!

    That sounds like the school I am working at, we did a summer open house and I get to meet parents and some students. I love meeting the new students.

    I have a Polish last name, too, though somehow the kids can pronounce it perfectly from the beginning. It's the adults who have a problem!! :lol:

    I've met some of my kids (in conversation or passing) and know them well enough, but I have still so much to learn about them.
