It April is already here and the weather is getting warmer. I’m thankful for the warmer weather. I will say that this working from home stuff is not all it’s cracked up to be...my back is missing my office chair! Who knew I had such uncomfortable chairs at home? :)
Our Fran Sawicki Dinner was a success! We raised close to $2000 - thank you to everyone who attended!
Since our dinner, a lot has changed in all of our worlds - we have gone from running around town with our kids for activities or on our own errands to staying at home and only going out when necessary at least for the foreseeable future. These are some difficult times right now and day by day we will all get through this. We are all here for each other so please reach out if you need to talk or anything - post on our page, call someone or even text. We’ll get through this together.
Although we can’t hold an in-person meeting for this month, we will be doing it via video conference. So please try to attend on April 7th so we can all see each other...at least virtually. The event page has the link for the video conference.
Please stay safe everyone! And to those who can’t stay home with their families and need to be out there - all of our medical professionals, law enforcement/fire department, retail workers - thank you. Thank you for being there and keeping us all going!!
Hope to “see” you all at the video meeting!!
Well…to say this month has been interesting, is a HUGE understatement. I don’t think any of us saw this coming and I for one know that I was not emotionally or mentally ready for it. But my family and I have settled in and are making the best of a not so great situation. Not being at work feels very strange and I am missing my students like crazy! I record our read aloud each day and post it on our Google classroom. They get so excited to hear me reading their favorite book! It’s nice to know they miss me as much as I miss them! The silver lining to all of this, I have learned more about technology then I ever knew! I am getting to see what my children are like as students…good and bad. And I am spending quality time with my family that otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to do. We have taken this as an opportunity to slow everything down.
That being said, to our moms who are essential to our lives, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are all amazing in my eyes. Please stay safe and know that your MOTC family have your back.
The members of the board want to thank you for the support over these trying times. We are working hard to make sure that the club is up and running and will be waiting for you on the other side of this. Geez…it’s amazing the lengths Susie will go to stay President! Just kidding Susie…we are all lucky to have you as our humble leader for another year.
So, until I get to see everyone’s smiling faces again, please be safe! Keep an eye on our FB page and emails as we try to sort this all out. Remember to try and get out and get fresh air when you can. It’s amazing what it can do for us physically and mentally. Please know that we are here if you need anything. I know these times can be hard on all of us. Please lean on each other! Hopefully I will see all of you soon…and not on a computer screen!
With love and thoughts,
