Emmy's teacher Mrs. M. has been at the school for decades and has a very well known reputation. I am hoping she will be helpful with accommodations and understanding of Emmy's issues. Her room is decorated nicely and Emmy zoned in right away to the fact that her teacher is a Gator fan and has paraphernalia around the room. I think she felt at home.
Cameron actually has 2 teachers this year which I didn't know until we went to open house. Cameron did though...hmmm... may be you should communicate this with Mom?! Anyway, she's with one teacher in the AM and one in the PM. It's supposed to get them used to middle school and the class changes, etc. The one huge difference I noticed in the 5th grade classroom is the starkness...none of the jungle themes, aquatic themes, it was total absence of any theme except a classroom in the eastern block! I'm hoping the teachers were just behind in getting their classes set up but some how I don't think so!!
So here are our traditional 1st day pics:
Cameron & Emmy

Off to class...
Both girls reported good days...Cameron had homework tonight; no break for 5th graders!
Guess what?! No school tomorrow due to Tropical Storm Fay - Yeah, they decided to shut down the schools tomorrow at lunch time today...Yippee!!
