6th Annual Christi Thomas Poker Run

Here is the information about the sixth annual Christi Thomas Memorial Poker Run for anyone who may be interested in attending. This yearly fundraiser brings about $2,000 to the Christi Thomas memorial fund. In just a few weeks, we will be presenting more C.T. Scholarships to deserving Seneca East graduates and Fremont St. Joe graduates heading on for higher education. More Christi scholarships for graduates from Dance Unlimited will follow that in early June.

Sorry I cannot update about Shayla's school experience right now. It just makes me too sad. I love her so much and it's hard to see her so unhappy about this big change in her life.

Keep going Shayla - I'm sure it's every bit as difficult as it feels - but think how proud of yourself you should be - it's a real challenge to try to fit into a school half-way through a new year and I bet everyone would find it this hard. I think you are exceptionally brave to be giving it a shot.

Don't be so hard on yourself regarding Shayla's school experience! I was an Army brat and moved numerous times...as soon as I settled with a new group of friends I was happy again!

I wasn't nearly as outgoing as Shayla seems to be...she should be fine in no time and laughing about how upsetting it was.

Poor Shayla, I thought switching her at the end of the year when everyone was already in a routine was a silly decision. She would be the new kid no matter when she started. Let her go back to Seneca East to finish the year and go back in the fall when everything is being reviewed and there are no routines established. Why be miserable this last month? You as a teacher should have known it would be hard to have a new child join your class for the final month when they haven't been in the same curriculum. Let her go back to Seneca East and enjoy the end of her year...it was a bad decision...and not one a child should have been making for herself. Start fresh again next year...keep in touch with the new little friends. Best of luck!

Having worked in a few county schools and also Tiffin city let me assure you you've made the best choice for your daughter. She is at a far superior school. I know that is hard for you to see now since you were a student at SE and you also work there but it is for the better. Don't beat yourself up!
