Pretty windy last night.  I had a headache and took a Tylenol PM.  Slept right through what must have been a terrible storm.  Woke up to find that DS had moved the RV and my car across the street to keep them from being crushed if a tree decided to fall on them.  Turned on the TV and found that school was cancelled all around us and there must have been a dozen tornadoes.  Jefferson County came out of it okay.  Seems like there were a few power outages but nothing serious.  I’m glad.

We had school as usual but a lot of surrounding school districts were closed today.  I’m so glad we don’t have to makeup another day.  It would have made us roll over to the week of June 6th.  Our school retreat is the week of August 1st so we wouldn’t even have 8 weeks off.  Summer just doesn’t last long enough.

We’re doing KCCT testing this week.  The kids have been in testing most of the morning.  I told them to work on their resumes but I’m making it a point to ignore them.  If they’re off task, I’ll let them get away with it today.  See no evil….  I still love these kids.  What a difference from last trimester.  I was ready to throw in the towel.  I’ve heard that 63 of our staff members have applied for transfers.  Unbelievable.

Oops! Lunchtime!  I have to be in the cafeteria today to help with senior orders.

SIXTY-THREE? Gee what kind of monsters are at your school?!

Sounds like you slept good- I wake up for the littlest nothings, it’s frustrating!

Wow, you guys have had a lot of crazy weather this year.

So glad that you’re enjoying your kiddos this trimester. It can make the end of the year much more enjoyable and come faster! I haven’t started the countdown yet but I think we only have 6 weeks to go–yippee!!!!

Our school board is shrinking. The high cost of living in a major city is driving the families to the ‘burbs. I feel sorry for any recent Fac of Ed grads as there are no jobs here. I know I put in for a transfer but am not holding my breath.
Glad you are enjoying the students this round. That is what it is all about, isn’t it? If you are happy, they will learn more.
