Thanks, Mrs. 4444s, for hosting the Fragments!
On to the week! Which was crazy busy. I think that having a day off (our schools were closed on Tuesday) makes for a much more difficult week than normal. That and allergies. And the fact that summer came back for two days. UGH.
We had our kick-off assembly for the bullying program we adopted this summer. I somehow found myself on the committee and we have truly learned tons about bullying. This program, OLWEUS, seems to be pretty solid. We started with a two day workshop in June and have been working up to the kick-off we had on Thursday. The program comes with cheers that our wonderful guidance counselor (and tireless leader in the program) decided each teacher in our school and our administrators should get up IN FRONT OF ALL OUR 750+ students and perform. She grouped us, gave us our cheers and hoped for the best. I'm not sure she got the best but the kids really seemed to love each and every one- there were five groups. They shouted and squealed and waved at us. The excitement filled the air. Three of us on the committee had helped put together clips for videos which our guidance counselor's son (who is one of the best kids you could ever hope to know) put together into two videos (a video featuring students and the other one featuring teachers and all staff) we played for the assembly on one of those big pull down screens. Wow! Apparently, we are superstars! Isn't elementary school the best?! ANYWAY, after the assembly, I was walking down the hall and passed a few CD kids- the 4 year olds- who stopped and yelled, "Hey! We just saw you on television!" See? Elementary school ROCKS! LOL
I'll leave y'all with that since it was quite a lot of information. There wasn't much else that happened during the week. We have been so focused on the kick-off that I'm not sure we would have noticed had anything else been going on anyway. Ha!
Have a perfectly marvelous weekend, y'all! :)
