- As a school we have collected quite a lost and found pile in the front office. We will be announcing all week for students to check if they are missing a coat, jacket, backpack, or notebook. On Friday, March 16th we will be taking all of the items left and donating them to a local thrift store. Please ask your child to check that if you feel you are missing something.
There are certain things that a teacher must never do: Never pour Plaster of Paris down the sink. Never stand on a bathroom scale when teaching your students about pounds and ounces. Never throw a wilted flower away in front of the child who gave it to you no matter how droopy it is. And never forget to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day.
On St. Patrick’s Day, children fall into one of four categories- those who cover themselves from head to toe in green, those who wear one or two articles of green clothing, those who forgot and wear no green at all, and the tricksters. These are the kids who appear to not be wearing any green. But as soon as you point this out to them they shout, “Yes, I am!” then bend over and reveal the two-millimeter stitch of green thread on the back of their shoe.
Every year some children will argue. “Mrs. Killian, so and so pinched me and I have green on!” The child will lift up his/her pant leg or shirt or sleeve to reveal a green sticker. Then I hear something like: “Nuh-huh…did not” “Yes, you did!” “NO! I fake-pinched you.” Four years of college and a master’s cannot prepare you for this stuff! Thank goodness St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Saturday this year.
Riverview SEP Conferences will be held Wednesday, March 14th and Thursday, March 15th. SEP Conferences will be held Wednesday from 3:20 – 5:00 PM and Thursday from 3:20-8:00 PM.
