I haven’t thought about how many school days we have left.  I’ve been swamped and they’ve been flying by.  But…I just looked and we have 14 to go! 

I’ve been busy, as usual, with all the end of the year stuff.  Just finished Steven’s Ring Ceremony, yesterday was the last faculty meeting of the year, going to King’s Island in Cincinnati as a field trip chaperone on Friday, next Thursday is Senior Awards Banquet, and I have to finish 120 more awards before then.  I’ve already gotten more than 300 of them finished.  Today, I’ll be finishing the programs for the Senior Awards Banquet and I have to teach ESS after school today.  Definitely keeping busy.

I organized a fundraiser last week that turned out to be a lot of fun.  Asked 8 people to volunteer to make a dinner over the weekend and bring it on Monday.  The dinner’s were auctioned off last Friday with all proceeds going to the National Honor Society and half that amount being donated to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.  My dinner consisted of Lime Grilled Chicken with Cuban Salsa, fresh corn on the cobb, yellow rice, and a loaf of homemade bread.  It went for $50.00.  In all, we raised almost $400 and it was a lot of fun as the bidding got pretty heated towards the end.  I was outbid on another teacher’s Quesadilla Casserole and Chocolate Tres Leche Cake.  Probably a good thing I was outbid.  Sounds way too good.

Gotta run, duty calls!

Isn’t the end of the year horrible and fabulous at the same time?? I just finished the program for Senior Awards 2 minutes ago and it feels sooooo good to be done with that. We aren’t done until June 10th so I haven’t started the countdown yet but I know it will go quickly.

And I agree w/Joy, make sure to relax over the summer.

The dinners sounded awesome – so yummy. I would have loved to bid for some. Really proud of you for arranging the wonderful event.
