Teachers’ summer adventures . . .
Posted on July 15, 2017
I hope that you are all enjoying a wonderful and restful summer. I was on vacation last week in the beautiful mountains at Massanutten. Now that I am back I thought you might like to see what some of our teachers are up to. I have asked them to share a photo or two of their summer, and I will pass on to you.
Ms. McKinley is enjoying a grand European tour: “Started on my Europe backpacking trip yesterday- started in London and will be going to Munich, Budapest, Athens, Santorini, Amalfi Coast, Rome, and Moscow! Headed to Alaska to hike in Denali national park when I get back.” (Looks like fun!).
Mrs. Bonner-Reynolds and her husband have been traveling. They traveled to the Dingman’s Ferry area of the Poconos in Pennsylvania for the 4th of July holiday week! They were there 3 days and hiked to three waterfalls in Dingmans’s Ferry forest and Briscoe mountain. After the Poconos, they traveled to VA Beach to spend the rest of their vacation week with family, catching rays and waves!
I hope you are enjoying these pictures and hearing about our fun summers. May the rest of your summer be blessed.
More teacher news:
Talking of scenery, I tried my hand at painting a scene in the Blue Ridge Mountains while I was at Massanutten. My first attempt at painting – maybe I should get the students to give me a few pointers!
Our new 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Gomes went with her family on a Scandinavian adventure through the Norwegian Sea. They traveled on a cruise through Norway, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Finland,Russia, and Estonia. What an experience!
Mrs. Murphy had quite an adventure: She and her husband went to a wedding in Anchorage, AK and traveled to Talkeetna, the town well known as the last stop for Denali mountain climbers. They went on a jet boat tour and ended up rescuing a lost dog stranded on a rock formation. It was to be reunited with its owners 3 hours away!
Keep watching for more pictures!
