Schoolgirl Style’s Latest News


Oh my goodness!  It has been awhile since I wrote a “real” blog post.  This girl has been B.U.S.Y!  I have so much that I want to share and just not enough time.

As you know, I am teaching during the day and this “little” blog was suppose to be something that I did in my spare time.  Schoolgirl Style has really taken a life of it’s own and I can barely keep up!

I adore all of the sweet emails and nice messages from my followers.  I do read each and every one.  So many of you put the BIGGEST smile on face everyday – YOU are the reason that I keep going!  I try so hard to respond to everyone.  You have no idea how much your support means to me.  If you take the time to write me, for heaven’s sake, I want to take the time to answer back!

I also get a ton of emails asking for decorating advice.  It is not unusual for me to receive several of these emails every day.  In the beginning, I was able to answer everyone and enjoyed helping people all over the world create beautiful spaces for their students.  Well, it has been increasingly difficult to keep up.  I have serious “blogger guilt” going on!  I am finding it harder to respond to those emails due to a huge lack of time.


if you are one of those people that have emailed me and asked for decorating advice, please don’t think I am ignoring you!  I just don’t have enough hours in the day!

WHEW!  Now that I got that off my chest, I feel so much better!

Schoolgirl Style News!

A while back, I had an outline of my upcoming themes and packages, so all of you would know what to expect in the upcoming months.  I am trying so hard to get all of these projects finished before you need to start decorating for the school year.

I am still on track, just falling a little behind on some of them.  I’ve been sidetracked with another large project that came along unexpectedly – this is the reason for the lack of blog posts lately!

My rainbow theme will be unveiled next week for sure!  So stay posted for this amazing room!

I am also in the process of working on my polka dot tags in every color – almost finished with this!  HOORAY! 

My cute bug theme is scheduled for next month, along with ladybugs and bees! 

I also promised a paisley couture package and I still plan to get this out, but it may be delayed a little longer though due to some other important commitments that I have taken on.

Just because it’s on my mind…

We had an active shooter drill today at school.  Our entire district took part in this mock shooting.  I was feeling very anxious about today and glad that it is finally over.  Have you ever taken part in one of these?  Surprisingly, it was a little scary.  I knew that it wasn’t real, but for some reason, when you are going through it, it becomes more real than what you anticipate.

I was assigned to a classroom with several of my friends from my building.  We had to play the role of students.  I was lucky enough to be assigned to a classroom with my husband.  He is always “the voice of reason” and made the experience less stressful.

Several of my other friends were assigned to a different classroom and were actually some of the staff that were “killed” in the shooting.  Here is a photo…

Overall, it was an extremely worthwhile training. Although you can never be prepared for such a tragedy, it was certainly helpful in knowing what to do.

The Rainbow Collection

Just in case you missed it, I posted one sneak peek photo of my rainbow theme.  More to come next week!


So pretty!

See you next week!

  1. Yikes! That sounds like a stressful situation, even though it was training.

    We have had 2 surprise fire drills in the last week! One was during our PLC time after school. All of us just looked at each other and said, “Really?!” So we grabbed our snacks and headed outside. Luckily it was a warm afternoon and we able to hang out on the grass and get a little sun. It happened again this week, two minutes before recess was over! We were having our Secretaries snack party during morning snack recess and the alarm went off! Again, we looked at each other and said, “Really?!” and grabbed our snacks and headed out to corral our kids. They did a pretty good job and finding us (then running over and sliding into line from the mist/rain). Luckily, neither times were from a real fire emergency. There has been construction going on at school and they cut through the cable – twice!

    Hope you get a little bit of a break this weekend! Can’t wait to see your new decorating ideas! 🙂

  2. You are so wonderful! I guarantee I speak for a bunch of people when I say how much we appreciate you and all your hard work to help us. You have reached out to so many teachers and through those teachers you have touched their kiddos. You make our classrooms a billion times more enjoyable. So in other words, you pretty much rock! Thank you for all you do Melanie
