The new supervisor started today

I got to train her.  

I asked her at the end of our shift if I did well and she said yes!

She mentioned that she has SEVEN children of her own.

SHE should be training ME!

The Lunchroom is Open!

First day went as well as most first days go.  Basically a lot of organized chaos.  Emphasis on the chaos.

Let's see if I can do the simple math:

FOUR lunchroom supervisors, minus ONE who can't start working just quite yet.

Add ONE very rainy day which equals indoor recess [did I mention the chaos?]

LOTS of happy smiley faces.  You just have to love that everyone LOVES the first day of school [ask us all again in about 3 months how we're doing]

Oh and it just wouldn't be fair if I didn't mention the first urper of the year.  Yep, the custodian had to break out the orange bio-hazard materials to soak up the poor kids breakfast remains...........times TWO.  Seems the poor child hit two different areas.  Or as he referred to it, a TWO-BAGGER!

Lovely, I know!

I received a drawing from a really sweet 1st grader.  It reads:


Only 10 more months til summer vacation!

Polishing my Apple

Tomorrow is the first day of school.   Hoping the kids give me lots of new material to post here.

Today was our 'Meet and Greet' and the annual Ice Cream Social.   We got to unpack all of our school supplies into the desks, say hello to old friends and see where our desk and lockers are.

Oh and I spotted a few 'frequent flyers' -- you know the ones -- who might just supply me with material for the 2011-2012 school year.

I'll see you all bright and early tomorrow, donning my ever-so-fashionable apron.

The Lunchroom is open for business!
