Winter Blues

Winter Blues

In the words of The King, Elvis Presley himself, “I’ll have a blue Christmas without you.” The holidays can be a hard time for many people. We feel so much pressure to be thankful, make merry, and attend or host a score of events while looking flawlessly festive and creating magazine-worthy spreads for meals and parties. It can be a lot to handle for anyone, but for those who may be suffering the loss of a loved one, going through a divorce or break-up, or dealing with mental health challenges, the holidays can be especially trying.

Chill Out and Read

Winter break will be here soon! It's important that students continue reading even when they are out of school to prevent the "Winter Brain Freeze." One fun way to keep reading is to participate in the Winter Reading Challenge hosted by Oklahoma City Public Schools.

Students who read for 20 minutes a day during winter break (380 total minutes) can log their time to be eligible for prizes and recognition. To learn more about the Winter Reading Challenge, visit the OKC Public Schools website.

Excelsior! - A Tribute to Stan Lee

stan lee art

On November 12th 2018, Stan Lee, co-creator of iconic comic book characters Iron Man, Hulk, Spider-Man, Captain America, the X-Men and Thor among others, died.  He was 95 years old.  When I heard about his passing, I wasn’t surprised, he wasn’t in great health, but I was saddened.  Not only do we share a love of comics, we shared a birthday, December 28th.  So, as a comic book fan and above all a Marvel comics fan, it was a sad day, but it brought back one of my favorite memories.
