Happy New Year!

With the changing new year, many people make new year’s resolutions. One of my new year’s resolutions is to play more basketball and read more books on bettering myself as a teacher. I know what the kids in my class are saying,”but Mr. Fowler… you couldn’t possibly be a better teacher; we love school!” Well, thanks kids, but I could always use more practice!

Although we have not talked a lot about new year’s resolutions, I was wondering what type of resolutions you might have. However, I don’t want to hear about how you want to do more homework in 2007 (don’t worry… I’ll make sure you do), or how you want to treat your brother better, or even how you want to buy Mr. Fowler MSU basketball tickets. I want to know what you can do in 2007 in order to have great character.

What are some small things you can do on a daily basis to be a better person? Perhaps you might want to help your friend in school with his times table, maybe you want to hold the door for a friend or teacher, or perhaps you want to shovel a neighbor’s driveway whenever it decides to snow. I invite you to post your ideas here. Maybe you might be able to inspire other people with your ideas!

    Hay, how was that game Fri. Sansom had a nice ending shot to win the game. 🙂

  54. Mr. Fowler says:

    Yeah… I am glad Sansom made his shot, but I think we could have played better. We turned the ball over a lot in the first half and had some silly fouls. I wonder what happened to Johnson’s shoulder? Have a good weekend and see you Tuesday!
    Mr. Fowler

  55. Mrs. LaValley says:

    Hi, to Mr. Fowler and his wonderful 5th graders.

    I am thinking of trying a blog myself. I have enjoyed reading your comments, and Mr. Fowler has certainly kept you busy with various topics. Reading your views, comments, I have learned so much about all of you. Good luck with your resolutions, and wish me good luck as I set up a blog. My plan is to share upcoming information as we get ready to move to our new building, to share with your families, etc.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
