This weekend, we finished some things.
1. The Girl Scout Cookie booths ended for the year! I can’t say that I’m not excited. This was a long year for Cookies!
2. The Princess finished up all her sales for 1000 boxes of cookies. She earns the iPad Mini!
3. The Art Gala and Auction for the Princess’s school was Saturday. From the initial numbers, we raised over $6000. I’m impressed. (Could have been better---could have been worse!)
4. We are now a week closer to SPRING BREAK! This year, with Easter being so late (the end of April), we aren’t getting Spring Break until then. Because of all the Snow Days we have had this year, we also don’t get any of the teacher workdays that we were supposed to get before then. That means that from the beginning of March until the end of April, we are in school every weekday. I know that doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it’s the longest stretch of straight through school days all year. The kids get antsy. That makes the teachers antsy. This is when tempers will start to show in some of the students and teachers. There is no “calming break” to get away from situations with 7-8 straight weeks.
~2 weeks until the end of the grading period
~6 weeks until Spring Break
~11 weeks until Summer Break
We are getting there. It’s just going to take time.
