The final curtain call.
The end of the old year.
The party's over. Almost.
Actually, please remember to send any goodies for the class party with your child - or bring it yourself - tomorrow.
Wednesday (today) is the last day (half-day) of school for 2012. It's cliche to say it, but the year has truly flown by. If what "they" say is true - that time flies when you're having fun - we must be having all kinds of fun in Room 404!
The truth is, while the first semester has flown, I need the break to do some catching up. There are so many things a teacher has to do after hours and on days off. Not only will I work on report cards, but we still need to finish striking the set from our Christmas program, and make copies for second quarter events and homework. Not only that, but I have a family who would like me to participate in holiday festivities. Plus, since I'm filling in as the preacher in a small church in Columbus, Kansas, I really need to work on some lessons to present to them.
Luckily I am a night owl. After the family goes to bed, I start hitting my stride. On the other hand, I'm not as young as I used to be, and seem to be getting sleepier earlier. Here's hoping I can make progress and catch some needed z's.
Though I will continue to update the posts on the website, please allow me to say that I wish you the happiest of holidays. Until we see one another in the new year, stay safe.
