Partridges and Pear Trees

Beauty in the day: 12 parent phone calls (about the power), 11 checks for wind, 10 subs-a-leaping, 9 kids in the office, 8 bandaids (no recess), 7 pleas to return to class (uh, no), 6 early dismissal kids, 5 minutes for a lunch break, 4 locations for indoor recess, 3 counselors in the building, 2 admins with a lot on their plate, and one lost tooth in a lost tooth necklace.

You’ve Got to Squish When the Spirit Says Squish

Beauty in the day: it was from the other day, actually. He’s a 1st grader who has an interesting version of thinking outside the box. His guest teacher called the office to say he wasn’t in class where he should be. Although she believed him to be in the restroom, he’d been gone longer than expected. My assistant grabbed a two-way radio and went on a hunt. She found him, and yes, he was in the restroom. But he wasn’t taking care of the traditional business. It seems that he got his socks wet at recess, and came up with a plan to get them dry. She found him with a wet sock between two hall passes, and the lad was applying the greatest pressure he could.
