We had a great time at the waterslides yesterday! The students did a great job putting on their plays for the kindergarten children this afternoon. They need to make sure if their What In The World articles have not been completed that they work on this tonight as we will be marking as a class tomorrow. Any Write Traits that were not completed today need to go home for homework. Also any outstanding French posters, multiplication and division sheets must be completed for tomorrow. Just because we are getting closer to the end of the year doesn't mean that they no longer have work to do. Have a good night!

Stuffed Peppers....sorry I didn't post it sooner!

Ingredients 18-20 baby bell peppers, cleaned 1/2 cup Finely Shredded Asiago & Parmesan Cheese (I used cheddar instead of asiago for the kids) 1/2 cup Cream Cheese 1/4 cup breadcrumbs 1 large egg 1/2 tsp oil 1 tsp kosher salt 1 dash black pepper (I did not add this as some kids do not like pepper) 3 tbsps fresh parsley, chopped (I did not add this as some kids don't like it) Directions Preheat oven to 425° F. Cut each pepper lengthwise and remove stems with a paring knife. Scoop out seeds and ribs, leaving the pepper hollow. In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded Asiago & Parmesan and cream cheese, chopped parsley, breadcrumbs and eggs, and mix well. Stuff a generous amount of filling into each pepper, leaving about ¼-inch space at the opening of the pepper. Coat peppers on the outside with oil, salt and pepper. Place on sheet tray and roast for 5-7 minutes, or until peppers are soft. Make sure to not over cook them, as cheese will melt out of the pepper.
