We have a tight race for first place with the Wellness Google Challenge: way to go SM, CW and JA for cheering on your Block 2 classes!
One of our staff members has been on the Oprah show! She’s a celebrity!
When a teacher told a student that he did a good job, he thought he’d get the day off tomorrow!
This week (November 19th) we had full staff for the first time since September 8th!
I heard what the best thing is to do on a Friday night: to go home and lay like broccoli! (That’s a different way of saying to “veg out”; I hope it doesn’t mean the same thing as “Netflix and chill” since I’m quoting it in public.)
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!
Some place have signs that say “Do not feed the bears” but at our school, we’ll have to have a sign that says “Do not feed the finance secretary” (watch for the traffic carrying plates to her office to know more).
When we have visitors to the school, it’s a day to do your hair!
We’re glad we don’t have to pay when we forget to disarm the alarm upon entry to the school!
Our LST is ready for spring: all the OCA copies are already made!
One of our more withdrawn students was overheard giving our day janitor compliments!
Great volunteer work with people pitching in to bake (and decorate and wrap) 1000 cupcakes for the funeral! I’ve never seen so many people work together in a kitchen!
We have discovered we have the Queen of Selfies on our staff!
Rumors are circulating because a murderer in the US has the same name as one of our teachers!
Some EWP staff were accidentally harassing bystanders to join our Terry Fox Run, thinking they were students! At least we realized that only the one in the fur hat and blaze orange jacket was recognizable from a distance…
Our school raised more than ever for the Terry Fox Run!
