Celebrate This Week 1/16

It's Saturday and that means it is time to reflect on the week and celebrate things both big and small. Join our community and celebrate this week by linking up or just stopping by the host Ruth Ayres' blog to read others' celebrations.
I'm late to the party this week. I have MLK day off on Monday, so that has made me a little bit lazy this weekend.  I love having the extra day to relax and reboot.

I loved this week! I have so many things that I am so blessed to have. I am so grateful for my wonderful life.

This week, the Student Council at my school, of which I am the supervisor, sponsored a Bully-Free week. The students came up with the awesome ideas and made sure that each day was successful. I was so proud of the group of 6-8 grade students for really stepping up and being leaders. The best part of the week was the fact that the Student Council went to classrooms of younger students to teach them a lesson about bullying. I got glowing reviews from teachers about how the students did. The kids loved it too. I think this is a great start to opening some doors and getting teachers of lower grades to give the middle school students a chance.

My students got a chance to do some STEM challenges this week. I had requested these STEM kits in a project on Donors Choose last year. I finally got them out and let the students have at it. They did phenomenal with it and really loved it. I am excited to work more of this type of challenge into my plans in the future.

This week, I continued to work on some of my resolutions for self-improvement. I am loving the morning routine and feel great about the way I am focusing on the things that really matter to me. The bullet journal is a great way to keep myself focused on productivity. I started the Whole Life Challenge on Saturday. I am excited to have this game to focus on some great daily habits.

What do you have to celebrate this week? I would love to hear from you in the comments!


  1. Andrea, your post is so joyful. I remember loving three day weekends when I was teaching. I'm off to check out Whole Life Challenge, although sometimes I'm not sure if I'm up to any new challenges. :)
