Dear Diary,
I am happy to say that this week was a little less hectic at Socrates. After two weeks of Read A Thon, it was nice to have a “normal” week. Miss Priganc and I visited some classrooms, met with teachers to discuss observations, and just enjoy all that goes on at the school.

On Monday, Socrates was recognized for having one of the most impactful new blood drives of the 2014 year. The Community Blood Center of the Carolinas hosted a special recognition dinner and Miss Priganc attended with Eliana Davis, the president of the National Junior Honors Society last year. NJHS sponsored the drive and we had 126 people donate blood. I am looking forward to our second blood drive next week and hope that we can do more to help!

We are making our final preparations for the 8th grade trip to Washington DC and I am looking forward to visiting our nation’s capital! Before leaving Owl Canyon, I had no idea how much I would get to do as the Owl in Residence at Socrates. We had an informational meeting for parents and I could tell the students are really looking forward to the experience.

Today, Socrates hosted a regional meeting for charter school principals. I got to meet some new principals from around the area and learn more about legislation changes and teacher development. There is always so much information to learn, but the team at Socrates works hard to always be on top of the changes!

Tonight, I attended Mother-Son Bowling Night at Sports Connection. Some of our moms are fantastic bowlers! All of the moms and sons had a great time with a lot of laughs. Mrs. Salema and the Student Council did a great job of making the night special for the moms and raffled off a special Pamper Basket for one lucky winner. I had a lot of fun watching the moms spend a special night with their children.
