It’s summer vacation, the weather’s great, and all the kids are having fun outside. So where’s Greg Heffley? Inside his house, playing video games with the shades drawn.
 
Greg, a self-confessed "indoor person,” is living out his ultimate summer fantasy: no responsibilities and no rules. But Greg’s mom has a different vision for an ideal summer . . . one packed with outdoor activities and "family togetherness.”
 
Whose vision will win out? Or will a new addition to the Heffley family change everything?

This year marks my 14th year in education. I started my career teaching 5th grade and then served as an elementary school principal. Prior to serving as 4th grade teacher, I worked with an international non-profit that provides teacher training. I have loved each part of my journey, but my heart is truly in the classroom. I love coming to school each day to help my students learn and grow!

Struggling readers and proficient readers alike LOVE the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series! Doesn't matter if they can whip through it in an afternoon or it takes them all of Winter Break to read it, students will pick up title after title in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. These books are one of the most favored by my students, so I would like to get copies for our classroom library so as many kids who want to read them can!

My students are eager to please and hard-workers. Our school serves a large population of high-poverty students, so having reading materials readily available at school is particularly important.
