August 25, 2009 

Dear Families, 
 
It’s State Fair time in Minnesota and we all know that is the signal that 
summer is coming to a close. Soon backpacks will be packed, lunches will be made and 
the yellow school buses will be running up and down the streets collecting children 
for the start of another school year. 
 
I am looking forward to meeting new families and students and welcoming back 
returning families and children in room 211 on Thursday, August 27, 2009 from 3:00 
to 4:00 p.m. Following that I will be heading over to Beard’s Plaisance for the 
Potluck Picnic! 
 
I have had a busy summer. June days were spent recuperating from minor 
wrist surgery. Then my mom Mary, who volunteered a lot in the classroom died 
suddenly of complications of her COPD. So, I have been busy with my siblings 
cleaning out the family home of 54 years!! In August I did get a chance to take a 
relaxing and rejuvenating family vacation to Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks. 
Yes, I was there with the Obama family!! Suddenly it is the middle of August and I 
have been busy running from store to store to get the “best” deal on school supplies. 
 
Earlier in the summer we sent home a letter indicating that the 3/4 teachers 
will purchase school supplies for each child. We are asking for a $10.00 donation.  
We will be using National Geographic, a monthly publication, in room 211 again this 
year. Please send $5.00 to cover the cost of the subscriptions. If you are able to 
make a scholarship contribution for supplies or the subscriptions that would be 
greatly appreciated. 
 
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to e-mail or call me. 
 
See you soon,
