Take 5...With Mrs. Kara Norvilas - PES - 1st Grade Teacher
1) What is your favorite Color? My favorite color is pink.
2) What is the funniest or most creative excuse a student has given for not doing their work? Several times, students have told me that their dog ate their homework. I believe this because my family used to have a dog who ate everything!
3) What is your favorite TV show and/or book? Not sure about my favorite tv show. I like to watch the news. I also enjoy watching Chicago Fire. I like to watch sports. I love watching the Chicago Bears, Chicago Bulls, and Chicago Blackhawks games.
4) Do you like something sweet or salty? I usually like sweet snacks. My favorite is Reese's Peanut Butter cups. Yum!
5) If you could take a trip anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, where would you go? If I could go on a trip anywhere, I would go to Alaska. I love the outdoors. I would love to see a moose!

The PTO is in need of a new person to take over Labels For Education collection.
If you have some time on your hands at home (hint hint) you are the perfect person for this volunteer spot! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get you going!
If you have Labels For Education...keep sending them in!!!
The #1 question people ask about Box Tops is what's the best way to send them in?
The best way is to put them in a ziplock baggie and label the baggie with your child's name and classroom teacher. That way we know what classroom should get credit for our on-going contests.
Thank you for sending them in and keep them coming!!!
