Out of all the days on the calendar, this is about my favorite. From here out the daylight hours get longer, summer break draws closer, and life generally improves. In my humble opinion.
In the please-don’t-fire-me-I-didn’t-mean-it-like-it-sounded department: during dismissal duty today I saw a student carrying a handmade turkey. This excited me, since it meant that the display case which had held the creative hand-crafted turkey display since November finally had been emptied. So I called loudly to the art teacher, “The turkeys are going home!” As. The. Students. Were. Leaving. Oops.
