Great Things Seen & Heard

  • We thought lunch hour was short, but it turns out that it is long enough to buy a car!
  • We have two new words this week: “browngies” (a variation of boundaries) and “voluncheering” for those helpful staff members that are often offering assistance!
  • Overheard: “If I wanted to be a maid, I would have taken a job at a hotel.”
  • A slip of the tongue: a staff member asked to bite a colleague’s ear instead of bending it.
  • Learning a new word that is commonly used in describing how to use a cell phone in class: “sneakily” (it really is a word that is found in the dictionary!).
  • Student comment: “I’ve never been in a room full of smart people before!”
  • A tropical storm was named after me J !
  • Do we have a secret pizza door? No, we have a substitute teacher who orders pizza for students!
  • New use for a hall pass: stick it to the camera observing the bathroom entrance and then forget about it! (Of course, only one student is tall enough to reach the camera on the ceiling so it’s easy to find out who did it…)
  • People in this school are so nice; even with putting “meet” sauce or hot “dots” on the memo, no-one complained!
