The good old days...

One of my 5 year old Kindergarten students was belaboring over a not-so-favorite babysitter of hers. I interrupted her growing list of 'complaints' telling her that perhaps she should report some of these complaints to her parents, to which she replied:

Oh that's okay, she's probably dead now. This was a long time ago when I was only 3!

Winter Break (S)


The friday before winter break was our scheduled day for winter parties (formerly known as Christmas parties before the powers that be got involved).

Unfortunately, our entire school day along with the parties got cancelled due to our very first snow day. Mixed blessing to say the least.

So fast forward 2 weeks and a handful of days and we are up and running (literally) again with school brimming with kids, sleds, lunchroom/recess activity.

Our winter parties got rescheduled for last Thursday - shorter versions but at least the kids would get to have one, right? NOPE! School cancelled due to way cold temps. The kind that make vehicles not start, people stock up on food, and parties get (hopefully) rescheduled once again.

Friday and Monday (today) were already SDO (scheduled days off) so we were treated to an extra long 5 day weekend. Also known as Winter Break, part deux!

Stay tuned for more lunchroom anecdotes. . . providing we ever get to return to the lunchroom that is.
