Ms. Miller at Rockton grade school:
With New Tables – We Can Do Anything!

My students need new tables as a place to complete their work while having room to spread their materials out and get around the room easily.

My Students

My students love moving around the room and participate in what we are doing. They love to get up and work in groups, as well as use flexible seating to meet with their partner or group.

First graders like to have plenty of work space which the desks just do not provide.

They are eager to learn and love role play and hands on activities. My students love to work with their hands. These tables will help my students learn better and faster.

My Project

These tables will make a huge difference. My students will be able to communicate with one another at their table in a quiet voice. They will also have everything they need right at their table. Students will be able to maneuver around the classroom to get materials they need or go to the center they need to be at without disturbing the other students like it is now. This would completely change and help our classroom routine and set up. I know exactly where every table will go, and it will be perfect. My students will love the change and ease of these tables.

Rockford Scanner™: Alien Comes Up Missing In Winnebago County, Have You Seen Him?



I would like your help in finding my green cement alien… he is about 3 feet tall, seated in lotus position, with arms outstretched and hands together as if he is waiting to receive a gift. Unfortunately his gift was him leaving my front step at the hands of some miscreants. I desperately want him back. There’s a $50 reward for his return or information regarding his current location. I can’t imagine anyone could love him more than I do — you’ll see he is very cute in a couple of his costumes (Halloween and what he thought was appropriate while waiting to see an eclipse). He was last seen wearing winter clothing. Note: a great deal of paint is gone from his hands. Won’t you please help me find him? Share this information, forward, do whatever you can. I really want him back. Or if it was you, just return him, no questions asked and no prosecution.
Thanks much — Jan at
