Just a note to let you know that my knee surgery is scheduled for today and I have discussed with all students that I will out of school until Tuesday, October 12th. Depending on how my recovery goes it may be sooner or a little later but that is the date I am shooting for and the date we have circled on our classroom calendar. They will have the same teacher the entire time I will be out, Mrs. Amanda Wiernicki, a Memorial staff member as she is our Permanent Substitute. The kids call her Mrs. W. and they all know her and she has spent the day with us before. I am very confident that they will enjoy thier time with Mrs. W!
